Our experienced doctors can diagnose common eye conditions like dry eye syndrome, cataracts, glaucoma, and more for improved vision and eye health.

Recovery Time
1 - 7 days

By reshaping the cornea with laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK) technology, our board-certified ophthalmologists can correct poor vision.

PRK

Recovery Time
1 week - 1 month

PRK, abbreviated for photorefractive keratectomy, is a laser vision correction procedure that corrects vision loss by reshaping the cornea.

As a protection for your vision, the cornea is a dome-shaped, translucent layer that covers the front of the eye to refract light and preserve sight.

PTK

Recovery Time
1 week - 1 month

Phototherapeutic keratectomy, or PTK, addresses a patient's vision impairment issues by removing the portions of the cornea that are uneven or cloudy.

Recovery Time
3 days

By reshaping the cornea into a cone instead of a domed shape, keratoconus is a progressive eye condition that reduces vision and thins the cornea.

Recovery Time
3 - 4 days

When performed before the cornea becomes too weak or misshaped, a cross-linking procedure can preserve or even enhance the contour of the cornea.

Recovery Time
1 year

A full-thickness cornea transplant, DMEK or DSEK involves removing the damaged cornea from the eye and surgically replacing it with a donor cornea.

Recovery Time
1 - 2 days

Implantable contact lenses (Visian or Verisyse) are inserted in front or behind the iris — nothing is removed from your eye to improve your vision.

Recovery Time
1 - 2 days

Refractive lens exchange is an advanced procedure to remove the natural lens and replace with an artificial lens to treat severe vision loss.

Hazy, cloudy vision is a symptom of cataract growth, which will require a removal and intraocular implant replacement surgery.

Recovery Time
1 - 2 days

Advanced refractive laser-assisted cataract surgery incorporates the precision of refractive laser surgery to create incisions for cataract removal.

Recovery Time
1 - 2 days

In traditional cataract surgery, your ophthalmologist surgeon will use a blade to make an incision to safely remove the cloudy lens.

A YAG capsulotomy treatment uses state-of-the-art technology and techniques to eliminate posterior capsule opacity after a cataract treatment.

Due to the increased pressure on the eye(s), our glaucoma patients can have varying levels of damage to the optic nerve, which can lead to blindness.

Recovery Time
1 - 7 days

ABiC, ab-interno canaloplasty, is a surgical procedure performed to slow the progression of glaucoma and decrease a reliance on glaucoma medications.

Recovery Time
1 - 7 days

To improve fluid drainage and lower pressure within the eye for patients with open-angle glaucoma, a CyPass Micro-Stent can be surgically inserted.

Recovery Time
1 - 7 days

During cataract surgery, an iStent can be inserted into the trabecular meshwork of the eye for patients with glaucoma to relieve intraocular pressure.

SLT

Recovery Time
1 - 7 days

Selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) relieves intraocular pressure for glaucoma patients when less aggressive treatments do not produce results.

Recovery Time
1 - 7 days

If you have refractory glaucoma or had an unsuccessful surgical treatment or medical therapy in the past, we can consult with you for the XEN® stent.

We use the minimally invasive Kahook dual blade in a goniotomy to create an incision in the trabecular meshwork to reduce intraocular pressure.

An Ahmed tube shunt is a surgical intervention to drain fluid from the eye to reduce intraocular pressure and prevent damage to the optic nerve.
