Our ophthalmologists provide prompt and compassionate care for routine eye concerns at general ophthalmology practices across the AHN network. However, when you need ophthalmic expertise for a more complex concern, our ophthalmology specialists can be consulted to help. Allegheny Ophthalmic & Orbital Associates, located at Allegheny General Hospital, specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of most “difficult-to-treat” eye problems.
We have the medical expertise you need to feel confident in your specialty vision care. Highlights of our program include:
Our institute provides comprehensive care for urgent and long-term problems that affect the eye, such as injuries or disease. Each of our physicians has received the highest level of training possible for their eye care subspecialty. This training means we offer expertise in caring for most eye problems.
This medical/surgical specialty deals with orbital tumors and problems relating to the eye socket and eyelid. Our surgeons are known for their expertise in treating complex problems like thyroid eye disease.
We also offer expertise in eyelid surgery. We use sophisticated techniques to restore how the eyelid looks and functions.
Retina care focuses on problems such as injuries and genetic conditions that can cause the retina to tear, detach or undergo degeneration. Our retina surgeons underwent extensive training to treat retina problems, such as macular degeneration (a common condition that leads to vision loss).
Our retina specialists stay up-to-date on the most promising treatments available. These treatments include laser therapies and injectable medications called VEGF inhibitors that allow you to keep your vision longer.
Our corneal care specialist cares for diseases that affect the eye surface, such as dry eye, eye infections, and diseases that cause eye inflammation. Our specialist uses a new diagnostic tool — called a tear lab — to more accurately measure your tears and has special expertise in corneal transplant surgery.
