    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.
