About the Ophthalmology Team

The UMass Memorial Eye Center is staffed by board-certified, fellowship-trained ophthalmologists who are highly regarded experts in their fields. They not only care for patients, but also conduct research and teach and train tomorrow’s physicians as faculty of the University of Massachusetts Chan Medical School. This means you benefit from their leading-edge knowledge about eye disease and today’s most advanced treatments.

Our team of dedicated nurses and support staff work closely with our doctors—and with you and your family—to ensure you receive the best-possible eye care.

In addition, the UMass Memorial Eye Center’s ethnically diverse staff is equipped to bridge language and cultural barriers with their patients and families. Our staff speak a broad array of languages including Albanian, Arabic, Chinese–Mandarin, Greek, Hebrew, Kannada (Indian), Korean, Portuguese and Spanish to accommodate non-English speaking patients.
