CUHK Eye Centre


With a view to integrating the academic sector with the public health care service, and meeting with the growing demand for ophthalmic services in Hong Kong, the CUHK Eye Centre (CUHKEC) (formerly known as the University Eye Centre, or UEC) was set up in the year of 1995 on the 3/F of HKEH building. Established under the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, CUHKEC has numerous missions, visions, and functions, including the provision of private clinical ophthalmic services through the CUHK-HKEH Private Eye Clinic.

In addition to the private clinic operation, CUHKEC also operates the CUHK Research Clinic. The CUHK Research Clinic conducts clinical ophthalmic research, including clinical drug trials and surgical trials involving laser refractive surgery, such as LASIK. We conduct upfront research on ophthalmic imaging and electrophysiology, utilising state-of-the-art equipment in optical confocal topographies and retinographies for clinical and experimental studies. We spearhead eye genetic services and eye genetic researches. We also take part in stem cells and integrated Chinese and Western Medicine researches as well. All these allow us to better understand early diagnosis and treatments of all major eye diseases.

A number of research facilities have been set up under CUHKEC with the objectives to strengthen research and education on detection and treatment of respective major eye diseases. These facilities include CUHK Laser Refractive Surgery Centre, Pao So Kok Macular Disease Treatment and Research Centre, and Lim Por-yen Eye Genetics Research Centre.

The CUHK Research Clinic is also a Clinical Drug Trial Centre accredited by the State Food and Drug Administration (SFDA) of the People’s Republic of China since 2006. This is the only eye institute accredited by the SFDA in Hong Kong.
