The Doheny Eye Institute works in a range of innovative ways to improve vision in Los Angeles and around the world.
Mrs. Carrie Estelle Doheny, wife of the prominent Los Angeles oilman Edward L. Doheny, lost the sight in her left eye at the age of 69. Suddenly aware of the precious and delicate nature of the gift of sight, in 1947 Mrs. Doheny created the organization named for her.
Today, the Doheny Eye Institute serves thousands of patients in clinics around Los Angeles and Orange Counties and has emerged as a world leader in basic and clinical vision research and advanced patient care.
The Institute's innovative research programs continually result in new diagnostic and treatment procedures and are respected internationally for research of the highest caliber, with direct impact on changing lives with improved sight.
"Doheny Eye Institute is a nonprofit organization affiliated with UCLA's Stein Eye Institute. Patient care services at Doheny Eye Centers are provided exclusively by UCLA Department of Ophthalmology faculty as part of UCLA Health."
