Eye & Ear Foundation


The Eye & Ear Foundation, an independent 501(c)(3) organization, was established in 1985 to support the educational and research efforts of the Departments of Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology at the University of Pittsburgh.

Our mission is to advance the leading-edge academic and research efforts to improve how we see, hear, and live.

Whether it is hearing loss or head and neck cancer, difficulty swallowing, voice and sleep issues, severe allergies and sinus disorders, or dizziness, the team of physicians and scientists in the Department of Otolaryngology are committed to seeking treatments and, ultimately, cures for issues affecting the ears, nose, throat, head and neck, making them at the forefront of discovery and treatment.
