The Ufa Eye Research Institute is one of the leading Russian research institutes in the area of ophthalmology. The history of the Institute dates back to the second half of the 19th century.

Since 2006 the Institute has been headed by Professor, corresponding member of the Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Bashkortostan Mukharram Bikbov, PhD., DMSc.

Since that year there have been profound changes in the field of research and ophthalmic practice. Currently, the institute employs 98 ophthalmologists and researchers, including 9 Doctors and 28 Candidates of Science, 2 Honored Doctors of the Russian Federation and 9 Honored Doctors of the Republic of Bashkortostan, 72 high level certificate physicians. 


Main directions:

  • development of a system of complex treatment of corneal pathology and refractive errors;
  • improvement of minimally invasive ultrasound surgery methods for age-related and complicated cataracts;
  • development of surgical, laser and pharmacological methods for the rehabilitation of patients with diseases of the retina and vitreous body;
  • pathogenetically directed technologies in glaucoma surgery, prevention techniques;
  • pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment of congenital and acquired eye disease in children;
  • design and manufacture of medical products.

Long-term work of the department staff led to the design and manufacture of the ophthalmological device "UFalink" for UV-crosslinking. 

Studies at the molecular level have contributed to the development of a new ophthalmologic solution «Dextralink» which is used in the corneal crosslinking process. 

The institute closely cooperates with scientific ophthalmological institutions of Russia and far abroad: Germany, Austria, Japan, India, etc. There is a constant exchange of experience in adoption of approaches and introducing new technologies of surgery for socially significant eye diseases.

Every year well-known ophthalmologists of Russia and the world take part in the International Conference in Ophthalmology «East-West».

More than 40 thousand patients get treatment at the Institute every year. The polyclinic doctors examine more than 70 thousand people. 

The number of treated patients with such socially significant diseases as cataracts increased by 12 times, retinal diseases - almost by 15 times.
