Foothill Eye Institute

Ophthalmology & Optometry located in Pasadena and the surrounding Los Angeles County Area


Foothill Eye Institute is an advanced ophthalmology practice with locations in Pasadena, Glendora, West Covina, Montebello, and Downtown Los Angeles, California. Seasoned ophthalmologist Ron Gutmark, MD, leads the team in providing exceptional pediatric ophthalmology, retina care, cornea and external disease care, and other services, to preserve the eye health and clear vision of Southern Californians and their families.


The team at Foothill Eye Institute provides detailed examinations for patients who want to play an active part in their care. They search for early signs of complications that could later cause vision problems, such as cataracts, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, keratoconus, and glaucoma.


Many eye conditions can occur in children that are fortunately treatable by an experienced pediatric ophthalmologist Dr. Gutmark frequently sees kids and adolescents for conditions like pink eye, stye, crossed eyes, and blocked tear ducts.


When surgery is necessary to treat an eye condition, Dr. Gutmark and his team are well-prepared. They routinely perform cataract surgery, refractive surgery, and other procedures often using advanced laser technology.


Some treatments are on the cusp of becoming available to the population but need a little more testing with clinical trials. Foothill Eye Institute facilitates clinical trials for many eye health conditions and checks in frequently with their patients who are participating.
