Inpatient services

Patients who can benefit from the services of Phillips Eye Institute - a campus of Abbott Northwestern Hospital's inpatient unit include those who need:

  • special positioning
  • eye pressure monitoring
  • frequent eye drop administration
  • assistance due to low vision

As well, the inpatient unit is available to assist physicians who need a space to address non-trauma-related eye emergencies, such as retinal detachments, infections or increased eye pressure, when their offices are closed.

Patients are admitted to the inpatient unit with a physician's order and must meet specific criteria for insurance reimbursement.
