Overview of the Scott & White Eye Institute

The first ophthalmologist joined Scott & White Clinic in 1895 and from that date the ophthalmology department has been the choice of eye care for thousands of children and adults. For decades, Scott & White has been offering the most complete, expert eye care in Central Texas.

Located in the Scott & White Pavilion in Temple, the Scott & White Eye Institute is the only facility in Central Texas with fellowship-trained physicians in every subspecialty offered in Ophthalmology. Our beautiful facility offers the complete spectrum of eye care. From routine eye exams to cornea transplants, Scott & White has always taken pride in offering you expert ophthalmic care.

The Eye Institute offers patients the most advanced technology, easier appointment access, bigger exam rooms and more parking. And Scott & White Optical gives you the opportunity to purchase glasses at Scott & White from a selection of hundreds of custom-fitted frames.

Scott & White has always been known for its emphasis on research, and the creation of the Ophthalmic Vascular Research Program enhances that reputation.
