Eye care leaders around the country have voted the John A. Moran Eye Center at the University of Utah among the nation’s Top 10 programs when it comes to clinical patient care.

The annual Ophthalmology Times magazine survey of eye center chairpersons and residency program directors ranked the Moran Eye Center as No. 10 in Clinical Care. It is the second survey in 2022 to rank Moran’s patient care among the Top 10 in the nation. U.S. News and World Report in July placed Moran at No. 10 on its 2022-2023 Best Hospitals for Ophthalmology list compiled from its nationwide poll of ophthalmologists.

The Ophthalmology Times survey also placed the Moran Eye Center as a leading institution in its other polled categories:

  • No. 9 Best Residency Program
  • No. 12 Best Research Program
  • No. 12 Best Overall Program

About the Moran Eye Center

As part of University of Utah Health, the Moran Eye Center is the largest ophthalmology clinical care and research center in the Mountain West, with more than 60 faculty members and 10 satellite clinics. Physicians offer care in all ophthalmic subspecialties, making Moran a major referral center for complex cases, with over 150,000 patient visits and about 8,000 surgeries annually.

Moran supports 17 research labs, where internationally-awarded faculty, including one of the world’s top retinal teams, are developing the treatments of tomorrow. Faculty train 12 residents, four interns, and up to 13 fellows each year in one of the nation’s most selective and unique academic programs.

More than 500 employees work to achieve the Moran Eye Center’s vision that no person with a blinding condition, eye disease, or visual impairment should be without hope, understanding, and treatment.

Funded by donors, the Moran Eye Center Global Outreach Division carries out this vision on a local and global scale by providing services to underserved Utahns at no cost and by training doctors in developing countries to sustainably expand access to care.
