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 involves removing the damaged cornea from the eye and surgically replacing it with a donor cornea.

A corneal inlay, such as the KAMRA inlay, can correct presbyopia in adults and eliminate the dependence on reading glasses or bifocals.

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

Refractive laser-assisted cataract surgery (ReLACS) 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.

In order to treat posterior capsule opacity following a cataract treatment, a YAG capsulotomy utilizes advanced laser technology to restore vision.

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

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.
