The Eye Institute (TEI) of the Pennsylvania College of Optometry at Salus University has been a valuable vision care resource to the community for nearly 35 years. Construction of The Eye Institute’s original building began in 1976 and was completed in late 1977. Several months later, in April of 1978, TEI was formally introduced to the public with a “grand opening” celebration. This opening represented more than four years of planning and work. 

At the time of its opening in 1978, TEI’s facilities were state-of-the-art. However, with the passage of time it was clear the building was in need of a “face-lift.”

In 2012, an $11 million renovation of The Eye Institute was completed, representing a commitment to its mission and the community it serves. The excellent quality of care patients experience is now enhanced by a beautifully designed modern clinical space.

This year, TEI celebrates its 35th birthday. The Eye Institute’s talented doctors and staff continue to provide the highest quality vision care to its patients through the collaboration and expertise of optometrists, ophthalmologists, opticians, ophthalmic technicians and optometric interns.
