Outpatient Surgery Center

Virginia Eye Institute has established its own surgery center to ensure the optimal level of patient care. Our facility is beautifully situated on the Kanawha Canal and is designed to minimize the stress associated with traditional surgery settings. Quick and easy check-in is accomplished by offering free and convenient onsite parking, an elevator-accessible lobby, and a professional patient-focused staff. The center holds the distinguished certification of the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC), indicating that quality care and personalized service are continually delivered. To qualify for this premier accreditation, rigid standards must be met in patient safety, emergency equipment, anesthesia, instrumentation, policies, procedures and quality control.
