Visionary Eye Surgery and Treatments for a Variety of Eye Problems

Among revolutionary eye surgeries, we offer LenSx® Laser Bladeless Cataract Surgery, where a laser makes an incision in the eye and breaks up the cataract in less than a minute. The laser is more accurate than a scalpel and provides a sharper, more precise visual outcome.

Another procedure we offer is Dropless™ Cataract Surgery, along with highly definitive lenses, which result in an improved visual outcome for our patients. With “dropless” cataract surgery, patients are relieved of the burden and the cost of using post-cataract surgery drops, making a recovery that’s faster and easier on the budget.

Our team of highly qualified vision specialists also focuses on treating retinal conditions and diseases. Common eye problems we treat include but are not limited to:

Cataracts: cloudy areas in the lens of the eye

Flashes & Floaters: small specks or flashes of light that appear in your field of vision, usually caused by shadows reflected off tiny clumps of cells in your eye and cast on your retina

Diabetic Retinopathy: a condition in people who have diabetes that affects the blood vessels in the eye and causes vision loss

Retinal Detachment: when part or all of the retina detaches itself from the back of your eye

Glaucoma: a condition where vision loss or blindness occurs because of damage to the optic nerve

Eyelid Conditions:

Ptosis: a condition caused by sagging or sleepy-looking eyelids, potentially blocking vision

Ectropion: a condition in which your eyelid turns outward, leaving the inner eyelid surface exposed and prone to irritation

Entropion: a condition caused when your eyelid turns inward so that your eyelashes and skin rub against the eye surface, causing irritation and discomfort

Refractive Problems:

Nearsightedness (Myopia): difficulty seeing faraway objects

Farsightedness (Hyperopia): difficulty seeing nearby objects

Astigmatism: a condition making nearby and faraway objects blurry or distorted

Presbyopia: a condition making it hard for middle- to older-aged people to see objects close-up

Strabismus: a condition also known as hypertropia or crossed eyes, it’s when one eye focuses inward or outward while the other eye focuses correctly outward
