Our Comprehensive Services

Cataracts: If a cataract interferes with your vision, it can be removed and an artificial intraocular lens can be implanted to restore clear vision. We are proud to offer state-of-the-art refractive cataract surgery to qualified patients.

Glaucoma: Glaucoma occurs when pressure builds up inside the eye, leading to optic nerve and retinal damage and vision loss. When detected and treated at an early stage, it can be controlled. For most people, eye drops are the primary treatment. However, laser surgery and surgery in the operating room are sometimes necessary to help prevent further damage.

Macular Degeneration: Often called Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD), this disease affects your central vision and is the leading cause of vision impairment in people age 65 years and older. A comprehensive annual exam can help us detect the early signs of AMD and treat it, if necessary.

LASIK Surgery: When you have a refractive error, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or presbyopia, LASIK surgery can change the way light rays enter your eye and improve the ability of your eyes to focus. We proudly offer “all-laser” LASIK

Blepharoplasty: Blepharoplasty, also called eyelid surgery, is a surgical procedure that is designed to remove and tighten excess eyelid skin to give your eyes a more refreshed appearance, restore a more youthful look to your face, and help improve peripheral vision.

Dry Eye Syndrome: When the surface of your eye lacks adequate lubrication, you may find yourself suffering from dry eyes. This can cause minor irritations, an inability to wear contact lenses, and an increased risk of inflammation and eye infections.  Dry eye disease is treatable.
