The Paoli Eye Institute, with offices in Paoli and Bryn Mawr, has been taking care of the surrounding communities’ medical and surgical eye care needs for over 40 years. It was among the first in the area to provide advanced cataract surgery technology, premium intraocular lens implants, and ophthalmological laser services and have the most advanced diagnostic equipment and treatment modalities to meet our patients’ needs. Its doctors are all University trained and Board Certified. In addition to their clinical time, they maintain very active teaching appointments at university Ophthalmology departments in the Philadelphia area. They offer comprehensive eye care, from routine eye and vision examinations to complex eye disease management.

The Paoli office opened in 2011 and is an architectural gem in Paoli in the heart of Chester County, PA. It is a short distance from Paoli Memorial Hospital, off of Lancaster Ave (Route30). The Bryn Mawr office is next to the Bryn Mawr Hospital and provides convenient access to some of our specialized services.

In June, 2020, Paoli Eye Institute became Wills Eye Physicians – Galib Eye Institute as part of Wills Eye Hospital and its growing regional network.
