Eye conditions we treat

Our eye specialists conduct annual eye wellness exams and fit patients for glasses or contact lenses. Specialized training allows our doctors to diagnose conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma and corneal ulcers. We also treat:

  • Nearsightedness
  • Farsightedness
  • Astigmatism
  • Detached retina
  • Corneal scarring from injuries or infection

Patient exams may reveal potential problems, including high blood pressure, diabetes and certain types of cancer. When additional care is needed, our ophthalmologists can refer patients to the right specialists.

Eye care services we offer

In addition to wellness exams, we offer surgeries for many eye conditions. We use an advanced cataract removal system, allowing for precise microsurgeries.

Our ophthalmologists take measurements before surgery that allow us to customize your care and provide the best results possible. In fact, most of our patients can pass a driver's license test without glasses following treatment. We can also insert lens implants to compensate for astigmatism and help patients reach their vision goals. Additional services our team performs include:

  • Corneal transplant (keratoplasty) surgery
  • Glaucoma surgery
  • Laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK) surgery, a non-invasive procedure
  • Repair detached retina
