Cincinnati VA Medical Center


Eye Center (Highland)

The Cincinnati VAMC’s Highland Eye Center provides full optical, optometric and ophthalmologic care.  Patients are referred to the Eye Center, primarily by their primary care provider (PCP).  Emergencies are to go to the Emergency Department (ED).

The optometry section consists of staff optometrists, residents, and students. The optometry section provides comprehensive eye examinations, compensation and pension (C&P) exams, traumatic brain injury (TBI) and Low Vision Services.  Our Visual Impairment Services Team (VIST) coordinates services for severely disabled visually impaired veterans. The ophthalmology section consists of staff and contracted ophthalmologists, and residents providing general and sub-specialty care.  Sub-specialties include retina, cornea, glaucoma, oculoplastics, and neuro-ophthalmology. There are cross-trained technicians to support both the ophthalmology and optometry clinics, perform ancillary testing, and triage/schedule consults entered for new appointments.  Our clerks greet and check-in/out patients, as well as, answer telephone calls and schedule appointments.  Our administrative staff implement and maintain clinic schedules, employee resources, contract and building maintenance, and ensure policies and procedures are in place. The Eye Center consists of 30 exam lanes, six ancillary testing rooms (IOL Master, Orbscan, topographer, A/B scan, HVF, FDT Matrix, Cirrus OCT, Visante OCT, fundus cameras equipped to perform FANG, ICG and autofluorescence), 2 laser rooms (Zeiss 532, Zeiss YAG, Selecta II SLT, Alcon Purepoint, Pascal), and a minor procedure room.

We have staff optometrists providing comprehensive eye examinations at four of our community based outpatient clinics (CBOC) – LawrenceburgFlorenceHamilton and Clermont.
