The Society Welcomes the following Guest Faculty 

for the 2023-2024 Monthly Meeting Series



UPMC Mercy Pavilion and the Vision Institute have replaced UPMC Presbyterian Emergency Department and the former Eye and Ear Institute as the referral location for urgent and emergent 24/7 ophthalmic care in the Pittsburgh area. 

It is vital that you direct urgent and emergent care patients to

UPMC Mercy rather than to UPMC Presbyterian. 

The change in location is a break in a longstanding Pittsburgh tradition. We would like to ensure that the greater Pittsburgh eye care community adjusts quickly. Please update your practice's answering machine messages and after-hours scripting as these items are easy to overlook.

The leadership team at the Vision Institute is available for any further information. 

If you have questions about urgent care logistics, please contact Jake Waxman ( or Jerome Finkelstein (
