The ophthalmology department at Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont (HMR) of the Centre intégré universitaire de santé et de services sociaux (CIUSSS) de l'Est-de-l'Île-de-Montréal has been designated the Centre universitaire d’ophtalmologie de l’Université de Montréal.
A greater number of people will thus have access to the services offered by department specialists.
The Centre becomes the reference in several areas of ophthalmology:
- specialized glaucoma treatment
- stem cells
- cellular therapy
As the population ages, vision problems are becoming a major public health issue.
