Cataract surgery is performed when the vision deteriorates because of clouding of the eye's natural lens. This is a quick outpatient procedure
which can restore vision within a few days with minimal postoperative restrictions.
Cataract surgery is a very safe method of improving vision loss due to cataracts.
Comprehensive medical exams can help detect eye diseases in their earliest stages, which allows us to prevent or slow loss of vision. Looking
in the eyes can also give us clues as to other systemic diseases.
Patients with diabetes should have annual exams to screen for retinopathy, which may be asymptomatic in it's early stages, but for which
treatment can prevent vision loss.
Dry eyes are a very common cause of eye discomfort, tearing, burning, blurred vision, and redness. We can help, and offer Lipiflow, the
only FDA approved technology for treating blocked meibomian glands, a common cause of dry eye.
This 12 minute, in- office, noninvasive procedure treats the signs and symptoms of meibomian gland disease, the most common cause of dry
Glaucoma is a disease of the optic nerve, usually caused by elevated intraocular pressure. It is highly treatable if detected early. Unfortunately,
there are no symptoms until late in the disease, which is why periodic eye exams are important.
There are various ways of treating glaucoma, all with the goal of lowering the pressure in the eye. Depending on the severity of the condition
and other factors, treatments may include eye drops, laser surgery, filtering surgery or micro-incisional glaucoma surgery.
One way to lower the pressure in the eye to treat or prevent glaucoma is with laser surgery. This is a quick and painless outpatient procedure
which may replace or reduce the need for eyedrops.
We perform all-laser LASIK surgery and PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) to treat a wide variety of refractive errors. These procedures are
done in otherwise healthy eyes to reduce or eliminate the need for contact lenses or eyeglasses.
A pterygium is an unsightly abnormal tissue growth of the lining of the eye onto the cornea. It become red, uncomfortable and sometimes even
distort vision. Surgery is done in an operating room to remove the abnormal tissue and restore the eye's natural appearance and corneal
After cataract surgery, the clear membrane behind the lens implant can become cloudy and affect vision. This can occur soon after cataract
surgery or years later. The condition is easily treated with a 5 minute, painless procedure in the office and is a permanent fix with minimal
