UCLA’s Stein Eye Institute campus consists of three adjacent buildings: The Jules Stein Eye Institute, which was inaugurated in 1966, the Doris Stein Eye Research Center, dedicated for service in 1989, and the newest state-of-the-art surgical center, the Edie and Lew Wasserman Building, which opened in 2014.
These combined structures provide nearly 300,000 square feet of functional space to greatly enhance UCLA Stein Eye Institute’s continued evolution into the leading eye care, vision research and educational center of the 21st century.
Recently, the UCLA Department of Ophthalmology and the Doheny Eye Institute formed a historic affiliation in 2014, and patient access to eye care was immediately broadened across Los Angeles and into Orange County, with the opening of three Doheny Eye Center UCLA locations: Arcadia, Orange County, and Pasadena.
