Learn Who We Are

  • Dr.
    Robert C. Gates
    ,OD

    Dr. Robert C. Gates, OD, received his degree from the Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, TN, and returned to Texas to practice full time. Dr. Gates had previously spent time in Nuclear power program in the Navy before going back to school at the University of North Texas to earn his Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry. After earning his undergraduate degree, he spent several years in the private sector working in software development, documentation, telephony and customer care. Later, he returned to school completing his doctoral degree in Optometry and began working in Texas.

    Dr. Gates initially worked in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area for a couple years before receiving the chance to travel to Lubbock and El Paso as an independent Optometrist. While traveling, an opportunity in Corpus Christi presented and Dr. Gates and his wife, Tammy, decided it was the best choice for them so, in 2014, they moved to the Corpus Christi area. After working independently in the Coastal Bend region for a short time, Dr. Gates decided to open his own practice, EyeSight Healthcare, PLLC, in October 2016.  With his experience from Military service to varied private sector work pre-professionally and diverse environments as an Optometrist, Dr. Gates has developed a caring nature and thorough work ethic in serving each patient personally and professionally.

    'I love coming to work every day and watching the transformation in our patients. It never ceases to amaze me how being able to see clearly and without pain boosts their confidence and restores independence. So many people are living with limitations due to visual impairment – and might not even know it! Working here with Dr. Anderson has shown me how even the smallest improvement in one’s sight can make a huge positive impact on their lives.”

  • Terry Noble
    'As a child, I had a hard time at school. I had difficulty reading and was labeled a “slow learner.” It was only later revealed that vision problems were at the root of my difficulties. Once I saw an eye care professional and was fitted with corrective lenses, my performance in school excelled. We see these type of success stories every day at Dr. Anderson and it’s one of the many things that makes my career so rewarding!”

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Gates, and his Staff, are awesome! Going to the Eye Dr is like going to the Dentist...... I HATE it, but I do it. Dr. Gates was so nice! He made me feel very comfortable! He not only gave me a great exam, he also explained everything to me. No Dr, EVER, took the time to do this. I didn't feel like a number or car payment. He's amazing! I'm so glad that my Husband, Daughter, and I went to see him. I'll never go anywhere else, and I won't mind going!!! Thanks Dr. Gates and Staff!!!"
    Judy L. D.
  • "When I first entered, EyeSight Healthcare, my husband and I were greeted warmly by Frances and Tammy. We noticed the beauty of the decor as we walked in as well. We signed in, and were immediately helped. We began the process of checking in and completing our medical information on iPads. As soon as I was finished, I was taken in to the pretest room for evaluation.
    Once my evaluation was over, I was put into the exam room. In less than 5 minutes, Dr. Gates was in the room and began to discuss the pretest findings with me. He asked me several questions about what my exact needs and vision difficulties were. He assessed what was most important to me for my vision needs, so that he could best serve me. I have very difficult eyes due to major astigmatisms in both eyes. I also LOVE my contacts. Dr. Gates spent the time that he needed with me to make sure that when we were finished I had the best solution for my eye care needs."
