Comprehensive eye examinations give our team the opportunity to fully assess your overall eye health and look for any underlying issues or diseases.

Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a commonly occurring eye condition that causes objects to appear blurry and unfocused from far away.

Also called farsightedness, hyperopia is a refractive error that causes patients of any age to have blurry vision when trying to see objects up close.

Age-related vision loss develops when the eye of the lens becomes stiff and can't adjust its shape effectively to view objects at varying distances.

Amblyopia, or lazy eye, is usually defined as poor vision in one eye that causes that eye to wander or causes the eyes to not work together properly.

There are a number of infections that can have different effects on your eyes and overall eye health, and each has its own unique treatment options.

Eye allergies can be caused by a range of airborne allergens, including dust, pet hair, pollen, and other seasonal or environmental factors.

One of the most widely performed eye surgeries in the world, LASIK is an advanced procedure that reshapes the cornea to correct refractive errors.

Photorefractive keratectomy, often shortened to PRK, is a laser vision correction surgery that may be right for those who aren't candidates for LASIK.

For patients with more severe refractive errors, a refractive lens exchange replaces the natural lens with an IOL to improve the patient's sight.

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that negatively impact a person's overall eye health and visual acuity, often leading to blindness if not treated.

Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery encompasses a range of technologies and techniques that are utilized to eradicate glaucoma and improve eye health.

Using the most advanced technology available in the vision industry, our ophthalmologists are able to lower intraocular pressure by various methods.

The Kahook Dual Blade goniotomy and trabeculectomy are effective glaucoma surgeries that lower intraocular pressure by reducing built-up eye fluid.

Cataracts develop when the proteins that make up the eye's natural lens start to degrade, which causes the lens to cloud and leads to blurry vision.

Traditional cataract surgery utilizes fine, handheld tools to create precise incisions and remove the cataract lens.

Utilizing state-of-the-art technology, refractive laser cataract surgery removes a clouded, damaged lens and fixes astigmatism.

YAG capsulotomy is performed if the capsule that holds the lens in place becomes clouded after the patient has received cataract removal surgery.

During cataract surgery, an artificial intraocular lens (IOL) is used to replace a natural lens that has developed a cataract and needs to be removed.

Brought on by the thickening and shrinking of the vitreous fluid, flashes and floaters take the form of flashes of light and little black "squiggles."

Retinal tears and detachments typically occur with the vitreous fluid within the eye begins to shrink, which happens naturally as men and women age.

One of the leading causes of blindness in adult patients with diabetes, diabetic retinopathy causes damage to the blood vessels within the retina.

Macular degeneration is a progressive eye disease that affects the macula (the central area of the retina) and has two forms — dry type and wet type.

Using a panretinal photocoagulation laser, our ophthalmologists can treat a range of retinal conditions ranging from the common to the more complex.

Retinal surgery comprises a range of advanced techniques that address moderate to severe instances of retinal tears, detachments, and other issues.

A number of corneal conditions and abnormalities can often develop in patients with a family history of cornea disease, such as keratoconus.

Entropion and ectropion eyelid repair is a highly personalized surgery designed to restore the natural shape and curvature of the affected eyelids.

BOTOX is a diverse, minimally invasive treatment that can address a range of complex eye conditions, including eye twitching and excessive blinking.

Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that can improve both the appearance and function of the eyelids by removing any excess skin that obscures sight.

*Individual results are not guaranteed and may vary from person to person. Images may contain models. Possible risks of LASIK include but are not limited to: dry-eye syndrome, which can be severe; possible need for glasses or contact lenses after surgery; visual symptoms including glare, halos, star-bursts, and double vision, which can be debilitating; and loss of vision. The results of cataract surgery cannot be guaranteed. Additional treatments and/or surgery may be necessary.
