About This Clinic
UT Health Austin’s Mitchel and Shannon Wong Eye Institute diagnoses, treats, and manages a wide range of eye conditions, from cataracts and diabetic retinopathy screenings to some of the most specialized ophthalmic care, in patients (13 years and older). We use the latest diagnostic imaging and treatment modalities to fully care for your eyes.
At UT Health Austin, we take a multidisciplinary approach to your care. This means you will benefit from the expertise of multiple specialists across a variety of disciplines caring for you in one place to avoid having to schedule multiple appointments with providers at locations all over the city. The Mitchel and Shannon Wong Eye Institute care team includes fellowship-trained ophthalmologists, ophthalmic technicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, dietitians, and more who work together to help you get back to the things in your life that matter most to you.
We collaborate with our colleagues at the Dell Medical School and The University of Texas at Austin to utilize the latest research, diagnostic, and treatment techniques, allowing us to provide you with an unparalleled quality of care. Imaging and lab testing are also available on-site if needed.
At UT Health Austin, we focus on you, the whole patient, making sure that you have the support you need throughout your care.
