Welcome to Tianjin Medical University Eye Hospital (TMUEH)

    The idea of establishing an intraocular implant training centre in China was initiated by two world class ophthalmologists: Professor Yuan Jia-Qin from China and Professor Arthur Lim from Singapore. Donated by Professor Lim and other international ophthalmologists and supported by the Tianjin Municipal Government, the International Intraocular Implant Training Centre (IIITC) was founded in 1989, Tianjin. Being China's first Ophthalmic Microsurgery Training Centre, the IIITC is committed to train Chinese Ophthalmologists in Cataract Surgery and Intraocular Lens (IOL) implantation skills, as well as research and design of IOLs. Its establishment marked the popularity of Ophthalmic Microsurgery in China. The IIITC brought together a large group of Chinese Ophthalmologists, who popularized Ophthalmic Microsurgery skills in China and devoted themselves to the sight-restoring techniques of cataract patients across the country.

    By the late 1990s, the IIITC had outgrown its quarters. In 1998, Professor Arthur Lim and his family launched another donation of USD 500,000 for the phase II expansion project. In September, 1999, the IIITC held the 12th International Meeting of Cataract, Implant, Microsurgery and Refractive Keratoplasty (ICIMRK) in conjunction with the 4th IIITC International Eye Meeting. In the same year the IIITC affiliated with Tianjin Medical University, and built a coordinate partnership with Singapore National Eye Centre (SNEC). As a result, the IIITC now serves as the Tianjin Medical University Eye Center (TMUEC). Faculties of the TMUEC regularly take fellowship programs from SNEC. The interaction between these two Centers laid a solid foundation for the accomplishment of Chinese Ophthalmologists and the development of TMUEC. In August, 2004, Tianjin Medical University founded the College of Optometry and Ophthalmology, which was soon intergraded into the TMUEC. Since then, the TMUEC has been actively involved in frequent exchange and communication plans with the Hong Kong Polytechnic University and the Optometry College of Chung Shan Medical University (Taiwan).

    During the second decade of its development, the TMUEC expanded its service to a whole range of ocular diseases and became a highly specialized institution delivering eye care, medical education, vision research and Ophthalmologic fellowship training

    With the progression of the centre, the TMUEC once again underwent expansion with its Phase III at a total of 24,000 square meters in a new site in 2008. The new facilities was officially put into use in 2009 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of TMUEC.

    Tianjin Medical University Eye Institute, which is located on the 5th floor of the Centre, was formally set up in 2012 and TMUEC was accredited as the National Drug Clinical Trial Base at same year.

    In August of 2012, Tianjin Medical University Eye Centre (TMUEC) was renamed as Tianjin Medical University Eye Hospital(TMUEH). TMUEH now consists of eight subspecialities in Cataract, glaucoma, vitreo-Retinal & ocular trauma , ocular plastic &orbital fisease, cornea & refractive surgery, medical retina &neuro-ophthalmology, uveitis & ocular imunology and traditional Chinese ophthalmology, one institute - eye institute, one department - optometry department and four treatment centres including diabetic eye disease prevention and control centre, refractive surgery centre, strabismus and pediatric ophthalmology centre and low vision rehabilitation centre.
