Eye on the Future
“The entire Wong family is passionate about supporting Longhorns and UT Austin,” says Dr. Jane Edmond, director of the Wong Institute. “Their gift made ophthalmology a reality at Dell Medical School and has allowed me to recruit a diverse and talented committed group of core faculty.”
The institute’s top eye-care specialists are helping UT lead a complete revolution in health and health care, giving patients access to procedures never before offered in Central Texas. Thanks to the institute’s commitment to the education of medical professionals, the Wong family’s gift provides for the needs of Texans now and for the future.
