Award-Winning Eye & Aesthetic Clinic in TN, MS & NYC

About Toyos Clinic

Toyos Clinic was established in 1998 when Dr. Rolando Toyos was recruited by St. Jude Children's Research Hospital to staff a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in Jackson, Tennessee. Dr. Toyos was responsible for eye care at the NICU for 10 years and served as the Medical Director of the Jackson Madison Surgery Center. He opened a clinic in Memphis when the Memphis Grizzlies asked him to be the team's ophthalmologist.

Melissa Toyos, MD was recruited by one the largest ophthalmology practices in the country, Discover Vision in Kansas City where she became the first and only female partner. She became a partner in Toyos Clinic in 2014.

See Better, Look Better

Toyos Clinic specializes in three areas - Vision, Optical, and Aesthetics. Vision encompasses medical and surgical eye care including cataract surgery, glaucoma, dry eye, Lasik and SMILE, age-related macular degeneration, keratoconus, strabismus, diabetic and hypertensive eye exams, and more. Optical services offer trained frame stylists to fit a wide variety of designer eyewear and our Optometrists are trained to fit both general and specialty contact lenses. Aesthetic services include medical weight loss, CO2 laser resurfacing, upper and lower lid blepharoplasty, injectables including filler, Botox, and Kybella, Intense Pulse Light, non-surgical body contouring, FUE hair transplantation, and our complete line of professional grade skin care products.

To stay current on what’s new in Ophthalmology the clinic established a research team led by Dr. Melissa Toyos to conduct FDA and other studies. Our department has published many peer-reviewed articles and won countless awards and grants for our research such as the Lieberman Award, ASCRS Grant, Harold Stein Award, Earl Young Prize, and James Scholar Award. Our research has contributed to technology and techniques that are currently utilized by eye care professionals around the world.

We train other eye care professionals at Toyos Clinic with rotations for students from the Southern College of Optometry, University of Illinois Medical School, and our combined refractive/aesthetic fellowship for surgeons. Doctors from over 33 countries have come to study and observe the clinic’s systems and techniques. We have grown from a single doctor and a single practice to six locations in Mississippi, Tennessee, and New York.

Dr. Rolando Toyos established an aesthetics clinic soon after starting Toyos Clinic. It was in the Aesthetics Clinic that Dr. Toyos discovered that Intense Pulse Light could not only be used for conditions like Rosacea and for Facial Rejuvenation but that the technology could help patients with Dry Eye Disease. Dr. Toyos developed IPL technology and protocols for Dry Eye Disease and Aesthetics. In Kansas City at the same time, Dr. Melissa Toyos was establishing an Aesthetics clinic and her own skincare line in her practice. Both doctors have been at the forefront of Aesthetics.

We have used our success to provide care to the less fortunate in the community and abroad free of charge. We continue to strive towards excellence one patient at a time. Come see the difference at Toyos Clinic.
