The World Association of Eye Hospitals warmly congratulates Eye Hospital, Wenzhou Medical University from China with their full membership of the WAEH! We are looking forward to the valuable cooperation ahead!

The Eye Hospital, Wenzhou Medical University has found its ways to thrive within the contexts in China to become one of the world-leading institutes in providing ophthalmology and optometry training, education, research, and clinical care at the international standards within 2 decades. It is also the only eye institute in China that possesses 4 national-level research centers (National Clinical Research Center for Ocular Disease, State Key Laboratory of Ophthalmology, Optometry and Visual Science, National Engineering Technology Research Center for Ophthalmology and Optometry, and NMPA Key Laboratory for Medical Devices and Drugs for Ophthalmic Diseases). The Hospital is instrumental to the unique medical program in which medical graduates could be both medical doctors and optometrists. Over one-eighth of the eye doctors in China were trained by the hospital. 

With its annual outpatient visits exceeded 1.2 million and annual surgery volume over 87,000 in 2023, it continues to serve the patients with specialized eye care of high quality. The SCI-indexed journal Eye and Vision, which is the top eye journal from China, was established by the Eye Hospital in 2015.
