CUHK Eye Centre wins the Reader’s Digest “Trusted Brand” for 6 consecutive years
The CUHK Laser Refractive Surgery Centre has been awarded the Reader’s Digest “Trusted Brand” in the Eye Surgery Centre (LASIK) category in Hong Kong for four consecutive years since the launch of this awarding category in 2011. This year, having followed last year’s outstanding work, the CUHK Eye Centre has again been awarded the Reader Digest’s “Trusted Brand” – Platinum. This is all more meaningful since the award winner was chosen by the public who provides testimony to the Centre’s quality and service excellence.
With a view to integrating academic ophthalmology with clinical ophthalmic services in Hong Kong, the CUHK Eye Centre (CUHKEC) (formerly known as the University Eye Centre) was set up in 1995 at both Hong Kong Eye Hospital (HKEH) and Prince of Wales Hospital (PWH). Established under the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences of The Chinese University of Hong Kong, CUHKEC provides subspecialty-based private clinical ophthalmic services through the CUHK-HKEH Private Eye Clinic. The team of university professors and ophthalmologists is supported by experienced ophthalmic nurses, optometrists, ophthalmic technicians, and clinic supporting staff. The clinic is equipped with state-of-the-art ophthalmic equipment to provide advanced and precise ophthalmic diagnostic investigations, monitoring, and treatments.
In addition to the private clinic operation, the CUHK Eye Centre also consists of the CUHK Laser Refractive Surgery Centre, the Clinical Drug Trial Centre which is accredited by the China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) for clinical drug trials, conducts clinical ophthalmic research, including clinical drug trials and surgical trials; as well as the Pao So Kuk Macular Diseases Treatment and Research Centre.
With an eye to excellence in clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction, the CUHK Eye Centre strives to utilize its research and development efforts effectively and efficiently to provide the best refractive surgery services to the public. In the future, the CUHK Eye Centre will continue to excel in clinical services and research for the benefits of all patients in Hong Kong and beyond.
