Visual Function Center

We use protocols designed by the International Society for Clinical Electrophysiology of Vision when applicable.

The Visual Function Center at Baylor University Medical Center, a part of Baylor Scott & White Health, provides visual function and ophthalmic imaging for medical practices on and off the Baylor University Medical Center campus. Our facility is also available for ophthalmic laser surgeries for glaucoma and cataracts.

We use protocols designed by the International Society for Clinical Electrophysiology of Vision when applicable.

We thank the generous support of the William Jolesch Memorial Glaucoma Research Fund established by the Jolesch Family in 1983 at Baylor University Medical Center.
