The Delaware Eye Institute has a dedicated group of expertly trained doctors and staff committed to providing the highest quality medical and surgical eye care. Known for our compassionate approach to patients and their families, we provide a caring environment that encourages patient education, and is focused on answering of all your questions. We have a full service Optical Center for your convenience.

As a multi-specialty group, each year our ophthalmologists and optometrists see thousands of new patients of all ages, from children to adults, for routine eye exams, as well as performing thousands of eye operations each year for cataracts, macular degeneration, glaucoma and diabetes, and functional and aesthetic eyelid problems.

We have our 29,000 square foot state of the art office complex in Rehoboth Beach. This includes an expanded clinical wing, a full service optical shop, the Retina Center and our Outpatient Surgery Center with two operating rooms. This one of a kind facility, staffed with nurses experienced in ophthalmic surgery, is designed to enable us to provide the latest techniques and technologies, such as no-stitch Cataract Surgery using the new cold tip phacoemulsification technology.

As participants in many national research studies, our fellowship trained physicians can often provide to patients with complex and serious eye conditions the most advanced vision saving medical and surgical treatments available.

Please take some time to view our online site to learn more about our doctors and staff. With our goal of doing everything possible to enhance and preserve your vision, we look forward to helping you see your world more clearly.

Over 20 Years of Quality Care


Dr. Robinson started Delaware Eye Center over 20 years ago. When Dr. Robinson moved to Delaware he saw a pressing need for a facility in Delaware that could provide state of the art care across all sub-specialties in ophthalmology. “When I first arrived in Delaware, patients often had to travel great distances to urban university hospital settings to obtain surgical care for complex cases. This was a great hardship for many patients.”


In 2003, the Delaware Eye Surgery Center was opened in a new wing of the building. The facility is staffed with experienced nurses dedicated exclusively to eye surgery, and the facility provides state of the art surgical care at a much reduced cost for patients and the community. Along with cataract surgery, glaucoma and plastic surgery, the Surgery Center became the first outpatient facility in Delaware to provide outpatient vitreoretinal surgery for complex retinal disorders.
