Telling the story of Mann Eye Institute is synonymous with telling the story of the practice’s namesake and founder, Dr. Mike Mann. Dr. Mann had a vision to create a different kind of eye care practice, and has been perfecting that vision since 1977.
More than a provider of the latest advancements in ophthalmology, Dr. Mann’s vision wasn’t just about technology – it was about people. Each person that walked through the doors of his once single-location practice was treated with respect. Honor. Dignity. Gratefulness. And each team member who joined the growing Mann Eye family of providers committed to sharing this same philosophy.
That commitment has never wavered. Still, today, when you walk into one of Mann Eye Institute’s many locations, you’ll feel the warmth. You’ll feel like part of the family. Because in our eyes, you are. Welcome to the Mann Eye Family.
Early Adopters: True to our commitment to pioneer advances in technology, Mann Eye Institute invests in and commits to All-Laser LASIK with the introduction of the IntraLase femtosecond and VisX Excimer laser platforms. Allegretto wavelight technology followed in 2005.
