Clinician Helping a Patient

The Eye Institute’s mission is to provide competent, comprehensive and patient-centered vision care to all who seek services, while providing the highest quality clinical education to the Pennsylvania College of Optometry’s optometric interns.

TEI’s services include:

  • Comprehensive eye exams
  • Optical/Contact lens services
