Dean McGee Eye Institute

The Dean McGee Eye Institute is one of the largest ophthalmology institutes in the United States and one of only a handful of institutions in the Southwest and Midwest offering a complete spectrum of subspecialty eye care for everything from tumors to macular degeneration. Ranked among the leading vision research institutions in research funding by the National Eye Institute, DMEI provides services for more than 160,000 patient visits each year, turning no one away regardless of ability to pay. Community service is a cornerstone of DMEI’s mission, from providing local children’s vision screenings to sharing its Global Eye Care Program for the underserved in Oklahoma and abroad.

To continue its legacy of excellence in care, research, education and service, DMEI’s main facility, located in Oklahoma City on the Oklahoma Health Center campus, needed an extensive expansion and renovation in 2008. The project included 34,000 square feet of research space and 34,000 square feet of clinical space, both dedicated to advancing medicine for the study and care of eye diseases.

In addition to the expansion and renovation, the project included a new parking garage, a utility project, a loading dock, and an underground tunnel between the OU Hospital and Dean McGee.
