Where Hope Is Visible
Rohit Varma, MD, MPH
Welcome to the Southern California Eye Institute (SCEI).
We live in an era of the impossible-made-possible. Thanks to advances on every front — from the cellular level to inventive new devices — our institute is making bold progress on our commitment to end blindness. Our work is both evolutionary — building on discoveries that came before — and revolutionary — making quantum leaps that ignite breakthrough solutions. The result: new progress, new possibilities and new hope.
Our dedicated team of professionals provides each patient with personalized and compassionate care at every stage. We employ a full range of state-of-the-art technologies, including lasers, novel imaging devices, minimally invasive and complex surgical techniques, enabling us to develop individualized treatment plans. What’s more, our clinician scientists and researchers are advancing innovations in population health, stem cell and regenerative therapies, bioelectronics, and artificial intelligence.
This new institute of excellence is possible because of the enlightened leadership of Dr. Kwang Yul Cha, Dr. Jae-Hoon Song and Mr. Robert Allen of CHA Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center and its corporate parent, CHA Health Systems and CHA Biotechnology. We look forward to taking care of our patients eyecare needs and focusing on what matters most to them — restoring what once seemed irretrievably lost, ending blindness and transforming hope into reality.
