In Miami, there are three interdisciplinary components that make up Bascom Palmer Eye Institute. The Anne Bates Leach Eye Hospital offers eye care and surgery for virtually all eye diseases and disorders to newborns, children and adults and has been ranked the #1 eye hospital in the nation 15 times by US News & World Report. Significant developments in ophthalmic research take place in the Evelyn F. and William L. McKnight Vision Research Center where the faculty strives to translate those advances safely and expediently to improve patient care. The Jose Berrocal Auditorium at the Edith and Earl Retter Educational Center is the site for training thousands of ophthalmologists and medical students in the latest developments in ophthalmology.
