What We Do
Modern cataract surgery has become a procedure that is highly successful, rapidly performed, and virtually pain-free for the majority of patients.
Laser Cataract Surgery
Laser cataract surgery is a new technology that uses a femtosecond laser to complete several crucial steps of cataract surgery.
High Tech Retina Imaging
Optical Coherence Tomography is a revolutionary new imaging modality which allows us to examine the cellular structure of the retina without touching the eye.
Glaucoma is a disease of the optic nerve. There are different types of glaucoma but most cases are associated with increased eye pressure. If a diagnosis of glaucoma is made, your ophthalmologist may recommend a number of treatment options, including eye drops, laser treatment, and surgery.
We treat many common retinal diseases such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and retinal vein occlusion with medications such as Avastin, Lucentis, and Eylea. These medications stabilize the retinal blood vessels and are injected at an office appointment into the clear jelly which fills up the center of the eye called the vitreous.
Lens Implants are a crucial part of modern cataract surgery. You can choose the traditional type of lens implant that has given excellent vision to many people over many years or you can choose a high tech type of lens implant such as the Crystalens, the Trulign or a toric lens. These lenses are newer and have very sophisticated optics.
Diabetic retinopathy is the second leading cause of blindness in the United States. If you have diabetes, you should have a dilated examination of your retina at least once yearly to detect the early signs of retinopathy which may be present even if you do not notice pain or changes in your vision. Excellent control of blood sugar is also very important.
Macular degeneration, also known as AMD (short for age-related macular degeneration), is the leading cause of blindness in the United States. Symptoms of macular degeneration include blurry or distorted central vision. Macular degeneration never causes complete blindness but can substantially limit your ability to read, drive or recognize faces.
