About Kresge Eye Institute
Just a generation ago, eye disease, disorder or injury often led to limited vision or blindness. Today, those same eye problems are often effectively treated. Since 1948, Kresge Eye Institute has played a major role in these extraordinary developments through excellence in patient care, eye research and medical education.
Kresge Eye Institute is considered one of the nation’s leading centers dedicated to the preservation of sight. Because of its international reputation for pioneering eye research, it has become a major referral center for the treatment of difficult eye problems.
Kresge Eye Institute’s clinical ophthalmologists, who are also Wayne State University School of Medicine faculty members, treat nearly 100,000 patients per year. In addition, Kresge Eye Institute is privileged to provide care to the Detroit Red Wings, Detroit Tigers and Detroit Pistons, as well as United States Veterans through the Detroit VA Hospital.
