DIO, Ford Health system merge

June 13, 2013
Henry Ford Health System and Detroit Institute of Ophthalmology have merged and are recognized as a division of Henry Ford’s Department of Ophthalmology, as its research education arm.

“Bringing our organizations together will give us greater ability to impact visual science through research,” says Paul Edwards, M.D., chair of Ophthalmology at Henry Ford. The Henry Ford Department of Ophthalmology treats more than 55,000 patients annually at 12 locations in southeast Michigan. The Henry Ford Center for Vision Rehabilitation & Research, in Grosse Pointe Park and Livonia, provides rehabilitation to help people with macular degeneration and other low-vision conditions. The program can also provide rehabilitation for patients with stroke-related vision loss.

The DIO hosts EyesOn Design events, including design awards presented at the North American International Auto Show, and the EyesOn Design Car Show held Father’s Day at the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House in Grosse Pointe Shores.

The institute provides support services for the visually impaired and blind and a computer training lab for the visually impaired.
