About Veterinary Eye Institute:

Veterinary Eye Institute (VEI) is the leading veterinarian owned and led network of stand-alone ophthalmology practices on a mission to make the world a visually clear and comfortable place for pets, offering complete medical and surgical eye care for cats, dogs, horses, small mammals, and exotic pets.

VEI was founded in 2012 by John Warren, DVM, DACVO®, starting by leasing two exam rooms within the Emergency Animal Clinic of Collin County (EACC), a veterinarian owned emergency clinic located in Plano, TX. Working collaboratively with the large referring veterinary community, VEI’s clients and patients quickly outgrew the space at the EACC. In 2016, VEI opened a state-of-the-art facility designed with patient and client care and comfort in mind. VEI flourished and grew into a multi-location specialty eye clinic in 2018. Today, VEI operates in three states and continues to grow.
