The Paoli Eye Institute is a new total eye care facility established in the Paoli area in January of 2011. It brings to this area state of the art services, diagnostics, and management of the Eye and Adnexal medical and surgical conditions.

While the Facility itself is new, it is supported by a mature Ophthalmological practice that has served the area for many years. Its Doctors are all University trained and Board Certified. In addition to their practices, they maintain very active teaching appointments at University Ophthalmology Departments in the Philadelphia area.

The Facility itself is an architectural gem in Paoli, in the heart of Chester County, PA, in proximity to the Paoli Hospital. It is easily accessible from Lancaster Avenue and King Road in Paoli.
