About Us

At the Loma Linda University Eye Institute, cutting edge technology and innovative surgical techniques are used to serve our patients within a Christian environment. Located just east of Los Angeles in the region known as the Inland Empire, we are the leading provider of eye care. We are blessed with knowledgeable staff to treat your eye care needs; with over 16 attendings, 2 optometrists, 1 retina fellow, and 62 ancillary staff. In addition to the main Loma Linda office, including the Retina Center addition this past spring, the LLUEI has satellite offices in San Bernardino, Beaumont and Riverside.

Mission Statement

Following Jesus Christ's ministry of health, healing and wholeness, and working within the faculty practice plan framework, LLU Eye Institute's vision is to educate, conduct research, and deliver quality eye care. This will be accomplished by deploying an engaged, caring and competent workforce to provide care in "Christ's way of treating people" with a world view, whole person approach, while seeking divine guidance and following divine principles. LLU Eye Institute shall be recognized regionally and globally as a premier center for the use of cutting edge technology for physician education as well as patient care, for early detection and prevention in eye health as it provides whole person eye care, and for conducting clinically applicable research studies.
