In 1994, when Dr. Victor Gonzalez founded Valley Retina Institute, his first practice, he focused heavily on retina research in order to offer his patients a high level of care. Ever since opening that practice, Dr. Gonzalez has driven his teams to the forefront of ophthalmology research. That commitment to the future of ophthalmology continues at Gulf Coast Eye Institute. We strive to offer patients the newest, safest and most innovative vision correction technologies.
Our history of research continues today. The research team at Valley Retina Institute trials new devices, procedures, medications and other technologies under the guidance of Dr. Gonzalez.
Gulf Coast Eye Institute and Valley Retina Institute believe in providing comprehensive eye health to everyone. Not every patient is a candidate for every study, but certainly every patient benefits from the new understandings that medical research allows for. This is just one more reason thousands have trusted their vision to Gulf Coast Eye Institute.
