Detroit Mercy opens new eye care center at the Novi Campus

Dozens of people stand and listen to a speaker inside of Detroit Mercy's Eye Institute at the Novi Campus.

UDM announces the new Detroit Mercy Eye Institute, located at 41555 West 12 Mile Road in Novi, Mich., which opens to patients on April 30, 2024.

Over the past two years of development work for this new clinic, faculty, staff and University leadership worked together to identify programs and services to meet community needs. For UDM President Donald B. Taylor, this new clinic represents another example of the institution’s Jesuit and Mercy mission in action and opportunity to expand UDM’s health care footprint in southeast Michigan.

“We appreciate the chance to expand our health care services to this region with this clinic,” he said. “I can’t say enough great things about the many people who have contributed to this news today. On behalf of UDM, thank you for your dedication and hard work. And to our future patients, our team of professionals and experts are ready to help you with all of your eye care needs.”

When the Detroit Mercy Eye Institute opens for business, it will offer a full range of comprehensive optometry services. These include

  • Comprehensive eye exams
  • Pediatric eye exams
  • Contact lens exams including multifocal lenses and contacts for astigmatism
  • Optical services including eyeglasses and contacts
  • Dry eye management
  • Red eye management
  • Cataract evaluations
  • Binocular vision exams
  • Low Vision evaluations
  • Lasik co-management

Additionally, the clinic will include a full suite of state-of-the-art equipment and technology to diagnose, monitor, and treat conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic-related eye conditions. The clinic will also serve the community by providing affordable care to uninsured and vulnerable populations with limited access to eyecare, which reflects an important foundational component of UDM’s Jesuit and Mercy mission.

“The Detroit Mercy Eye Institute will provide high-quality comprehensive eye care that incorporates advances and innovations in technology to optimize patient care,” said Robert Onofre, chief clinical officer. “With the launch of this new clinic, we look forward to creating a safe and welcoming environment where all patients will be cared for with compassion and dignity.”

The clinic will carry an assortment of the most popular eye glass frames available today, including Ray Ban, Nike, Gucci, Tiffany, Maui Jim, Saint Laurent, Tom Ford, Shinola, Calvin Klein and many other designer lines.

Clinic hours of operation are Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Friday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.; and every other Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
