Welcome to The Eye Institute:
Where Quality and Service See Eye to Eye. 

As your optometrist, we offer extensive eye care at The Eye Institute. Our goal is to provide you and your family with comprehensive eye care services in one place. Serving the children, teens, and adults, our services range from comprehensive eye exams to ocular disease management. Find out more about what you can expect from your optometrist as you prepare for your visit to The Eye Institute.

Comprehensive Eye Exam at TEI 

Here at The Eye Institute, we provide comprehensive eye exams for our patients of all ages. We work with patients to improve and correct vision issues starting with a thorough diagnostic eye exam. Eye exams give your eye doctor the ability to identify current vision problems, as well as to diagnose eye diseases early on for proper treatment. Early detection is your best bet in treating eye conditions, such as macular degeneration, retinal detachment, glaucoma, or cataracts. By sticking with regularly scheduled eye exams you stand the best chance of preventing aggressive eye conditions from progressing. 

Eyeglasses and Contact Lenses 

If you are having trouble seeing due to eye conditions, such as astigmatism, nearsightedness, or farsightedness, we can help you, too. Our optometry professionals will fit you with prescription contact lenses or eyeglasses following a diagnosis via an eye exam. We carry a substantial selection of fashionable eyewear for all ages. You can also get prescription sunglasses at The Eye Institute made especially for your vision correction needs or hobbies. If you have a child that plays contact sports, or you are a sports player yourself, check out our selection of sports vision protective eyewear. Thanks to our optical dispensing service you can get any eyeglasses and contact lenses that you require. 

Advanced Eye Care 

For eye care needs that require more extensive treatment, we have you covered. We offer surgery co-management for eye surgeries with our ophthalmology colleagues. Through co-management, we can provide you with ongoing eye care before and after your surgery. We also work directly with your eye surgeon to save time and money as you get to visit your TEI optometrist for your post-surgical follow-up. We also offer laser vision correction including LASIK surgery with our recommended ophthalmologist. We also offer a nonsurgical approach to vision correction with our REVS program. If you are interested in LASIK or REVS or are in need of eye surgery co-management, give us a call to set up an appointment.

Family of 4 that recently moved to the area and we are so thankful to have found such a wonderful office!! One of the hardest things when relocating is finding new doctors, but this was an easy one. The staff and Dr.'s are absolutely wonderful. From the very first phone call to the last check out, everyone in the office went above and beyond to make sure that our care and needs were being met. We have 2 younger children and they loved their office visit. We were able to get appointments right away and all of us were seen at the same time, such a stress taken off our shoulders with that one!! Thank you again to such an amazing office, so very thankful we found you!!!
