At Mass. Eye and Ear, our focus is your quality of life. We treat everything that has to do with the eyes, ears, nose, throat, head and neck - so that you and those you care about can get more out of the world around us.
Our physicians are more than just specialists; each is also a researcher and a teacher. These doctors don't just apply the latest advances in medicine; they invent them. Together with Mass. Eye and Ear scientists, they work tirelessly to understand the root causes of diseases that both take people's lives and rob too many others of their quality of life.
Every dollar raised makes it possible for Mass. Eye and Ear to excel in clinical care, research and medical education. That, in turn, allows us to provide the finest specialty care to every person who comes through our door and to share our knowledge in order to help patients around the world.
Thank you for your support.
On a personal level, my eleven year old daughter will be treated at Mass Eye & Ear this coming year. Doctors have discovered a development in her ears that require tubes. The tubes will ensure that she does not have any permanent hearing loss in the future. We are in incredible hands, and I feel very passionate to be involved with such a special organization of doctors and runners!
