About us

The information by visual, is said to account for more than 80 percent of the information received from the outside world. Feelings and thoughts, including the emotion from receiving information occur, based on it, such as acts of behavior and risk aversion is expressed. If data vision is lost, it decreased or lack of collection of information, feelings and thoughts, the quality and quantity of behavior and act to decrease. This leads to a decrease of the Quality of Life. Ophthalmology is a specialized area to the visual degradation prevention and recovery.
In the School of Medicine education, was obtained pathology, the treatment, the knowledge in a wide range for such prognosis. These knowledge base is in graduate school, and more deeply investigate the pathogenesis of diseases causing visual impairment, is preventive medicine for suppressing the onset and progression of disease becomes a theme.
There is a vitreoretinal diseases, including age-related macular degeneration as a research field at the international level in our ophthalmology. In addition to the retina, cornea, uveitis, such as perspective amblyopia, doing research the Pathogenesis and prevention of various fields. We are specialists in each field, we have to practice the best of treatment in accordance with the individual patients. In addition, as ophthalmic top runner, and horsetail to provide and promote a highly-advanced medical progress. .In ophthalmology, we are taking a system that can treat the disease of all the regions.
