Advancing Ophthalmology Training & Patient Care

Created by a gift from the Wong family, the Mitchel and Shannon Wong Eye Institute, part of the Department of Ophthalmology, seeks to become a renowned center that provides patients with the finest medical and surgical eye care, furthers research to improve and preserve vision and trains future leaders in ophthalmology.

Focus Areas

The institute is preparing to offer a residency program and clinical fellowship that align with Dell Med’s mission to train the next generation of physician leaders. Residents will participate in rotations with community ophthalmologists, caring for patients in the private practice setting. These experiences will add unique value to the institute’s educational program.

As part of Dell Med’s work to deliver value-based, patient-centered care, the team is developing an ophthalmology service that will provide the best eye care to patients throughout the Austin community.

By forging collaborations with University of Texas at Austin scientists and local industry partners, the institute seeks to spearhead research initiatives targeting the preservation and improvement of vision.
