The Department of Ophthalmology of the University of Puerto Rico School of Medicine was founded by Dr. Guillermo Pico Santiago. For over fifty years, the Department has been dedicated to the education of medical students and future eye physicians. As the sole provider of ophthalmologic education in the Island, the Department has trained most of the ophthalmologists in Puerto Rico.

The faculty of the Department of Ophthalmology is now, more than ever, committed to what it has done the best for more than half a century: teaching. Through teaching, the Department hopes to connect with the broader ophthalmologic community in the island in order to serve the medical needs of our country.
