The Eye Institute Difference

Since 1986, The Eye Institute has been providing the highest quality of eye care in an ever-changing world of medical innovation. Today, we're known as Northeast Oklahoma’s most comprehensive eye care centers. The Eye Institute is a multi-specialist Ophthalmology practice, offering services ranging from comprehensive eye exams to specialty services including General Ophthalmology, Cornea, Retina, Glaucoma, Pediatrics and Adult Strabismus, Refractive and Oculoplastics and Orbital Surgery.

What makes The Eye Institute different from other eye care centers? Our doctors. The Eye Institute physicians are board certified and fellowship trained or specialty trained in one or more areas, meaning more qualifications and expertise than any other eye care center in Northeast Oklahoma. We also employ Certified Ophthalmic Assistants and Technicians to ensure we are offering the most advanced technology and treatment options for our patients. The Eye Institute physicians utilize a certified electronic health record, so you can trust you are receiving quality, consistent care throughout our group.

Trust your vision to the best and most qualified eye care physicians in Northeast Oklahoma.
