The hospital provides quality tertiary ophthalmic care to the patients it serves and promotes the delivery of Kingdom-wide ophthalmic care through its outreach, educational, and research programs.

For more than two decades, KKESH has been recognized for excellence in its delivery of ophthalmic patient care, for its strong educational programs (including continuing medical education seminars and symposia, and training of ophthalmology residents and subspecialty fellows and other allied healthcare personnel), and its highly successful research programs. These achievements have been made possible by the grace of Allah, the Almighty, and through the generous ongoing support of the government of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz Al-Saud
