Consulting Ophthalmologists, P.C. (COPC) was founded in 1977. Over the past 40 plus years, we have grown from three to twelve doctors, offering comprehensive eye care in general ophthalmology and in all subspecialty areas. Our first offices were on the campus of Hartford Hospital. In 2001 we opened our Glastonbury office and in 2004 we moved our Hartford office to Farmington. The physicians of COPC have always been proud to be affiliated with Hartford Hospital and have maintained an association with the University of Connecticut Health Center and Yale School of Medicine.
In addition to providing general, comprehensive eye care, our specialty trained physicians offer treatment options for advanced cataracts, glaucoma, cornea and external eye diseases, retinal conditions, tearing issues and dry eye. Our oculoplastic surgeon treats abnormalities of the eyelids, lacrimal system, orbits, and surrounding tissues. We also offer refractive laser surgery (Lasek) for our patients who choose to minimize their dependence on contact lenses and glasses. Our optical shops, located in each of our offices, are staffed with licensed opticians who are specially trained to determine the best lenses for your visual needs. Our contact lens department offers both routine fittings as well as specialty fittings for medically necessary contact lenses and multifocal lenses for our patients who have irregular corneas, corneal trauma, and other corneal conditions.
A core mission of our practice is to work with other ophthalmologists, optometrists and medical doctors in providing consultation services to enhance the care of our patients. We have always kept patient care at the center of our practice as we incorporate new knowledge and diagnostic and treatment modalities. We are committed to recruiting the best physicians and staff and will maintain the latest in facilities, equipment, and techniques so that we can provide the most advanced and exceptional patient care.
We are proud to share with our patients our pride in our history and in all of our staff. Our entire team is dedicated to offering you the finest individualized care possible including outstanding medical and surgical outcomes in a compassionate and caring environment. We believe it is truly a privilege to serve our patients and we are grateful for the opportunity to care for those who entrust us to provide the best possible vision.
