Eye surgery at Misericordia

More than 40,000 patients are assessed and treated annually in our ambulatory eye clinics in the state-of-the-art Buhler Eye Care Centre. Our clinics offer specialized testing, such as fluorescein angiography and eye ultrasound, include residency teaching, oncology, macular degeneration and retinal – where intravitreal injections are used to administer medications to treat a variety of retinal conditions.

Our ophthalmologists provide 24-hour on-call services with 14 Ophthalmology Assessment Unit beds available.

Complementing our centre of excellence is the University of Manitoba Ophthalmology Residency Program, including a resident clinic and wet lab, where residents can practice surgical skills – a critical component of resident training. Residents, fellows and faculty have access to the lab which offers ample opportunity to hone different surgical techniques.
