Future 
In the future, Shuang Ho Hospital will become one of the most important medical centers in Taiwan due to the rapidly aging population and high population density in all of Taiwan living in the Yong He and Zhong He Districts that Shuang Ho Hospital provides care for. To provide health care to the aging population and the increase in demand for vision quality, Shuang Ho Hospital will become a first-class ophthalmology, education and research center. In the very near future, it is the goal of the Department and the TMU system to establish an Ophthalmology and Vision Science Center.
