Multidisciplinary collaborations are a key to the successful enhancement of eye health. The University of Rochester Medical Center and the Flaum Eye Institute (FEI) provide an ideal environment for this work. One example of current multidisciplinary investigations is the Graves’ disease collaboration between Steven E. Feldon, an orbital disease specialist, and Richard Phipps, a researcher who specializes in the study of the biology of fibroblasts (connective tissue cells involved in thyroid eye disease).

Our team of physicians and researchers make the Flaum Eye Institute at the University of Rochester the region’s leader in specialty eye care. Our doctors are pioneering new diagnostics and treatments to help preserve vision. Often, clinical trials and new treatments are tested at the Flaum Eye Institute first. As the only eye institute in the region, we are committed to providing state-of-the-art eye care for common and complex vision problems right in Upstate New York.

Deficits to visual function may be caused by disease (such as orbital tumors or Graves’ disease), trauma (fractures) functional defects affecting alignment (strabismus/nystagmus), problems with the lacrimal system (tear glands) or aging (drooping eyelids). Surgical expertise at FEI includes treatment of orbital tumors, socket reconstruction, eyelid repair, and orbital decompression, as well as correction of paralytic strabismus and medically necessitated botox for blepharospasm.
