Diagnostic Testing Center

The Diagnostic Testing Center of Wills Eye Hospital assists physicians in the diagnosis and treatment of ocular disease. Specialized fields of ophthalmic testing include cataract, cornea, glaucoma, neuro-ophthalmology, pediatrics, and retina.

Our technicians are highly trained; many are certified as COA’s, COT’s, CRA’s, and OCT’C’s. We are also certified in numerous clinical studies helping to grant FDA approval for the latest ocular medications.  Our center works as a testing site with the largest manufacturers of ocular diagnostic equipment and software.  Since we see such a large volume of patients with a vast array of diagnoses, our feedback is invaluable for the future of ocular care. We receive referrals to our center not only locally in the Pennsylvania Tri-State region but also nationally and around the globe.
