Retinal diseases affect your retina, the thin layer of tissue on the inside back wall of your eye. Your retina sends visual information to your brain through your optic nerve. Most retinal degenerations and diseases can be diagnosed by a dilated eye examination. An optometrist can determine whether a retinal condition or other eye disorder
Our pediatric ophthalmologists are here to diagnose, treat and manage your children’s eye problems. We offer micro and laser surgery, surgery for crossed eyes (strabismus), wandering eyes, treatment of blocked tear ducts, retinal problems and infections. Our team can also diagnose problems caused by diabetes, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and other medical and neurological diseases and provide Neonatal Surgery and Care
We help patients through both functional and cosmetic procedures to the eyelids, eye sockets, tear ducts and face. We’ll protect your eyes, preserve your sight and keep you looking your best, and ultimately living your best life.
Patients often require a neuro-ophthalmologist to diagnose how the eye and optic nerve are communicating with the brain. Our team uses the latest equipment to treat patients with neuro-ophthalmic conditions and perform Tensilon testing for myasthenia gravis patients. Our physicians understand the challenges of neuro-ophthalmic conditions and will work around regular office hours to help recommend and treat these patients.
Refractive surgery reshapes the cornea so light focuses correctly on the retina, reducing dependency on glasses and contacts and improving your vision. Today, LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis), PRK (Photorefractive Keratotomy) and Visian ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens) can correct most degrees of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. LASIK and other vision correction procedures offer long-lasting, life-changing results.
Glaucoma is a progressive eye disease that can eventually lead to vision loss. It can be managed with regular eye exams, early detection and treatment. When you have glaucoma, the optic nerve that carries electrical signals from your eye to your brain slowly becomes compromised, affecting your vision and potentially causing gradual blindness. It’s often hereditary or experienced by patients over 60 or of African descent, but can also develop from a past eye injury, high eye pressure or a thin cornea.
The cornea protects your inner eye against dirt, germs and ultraviolet light. When light enters your eye, it’s bent by the cornea and helps you focus. When the cornea is affected by disease, infection or injury, things just might not look right. When you’re experiencing cornea problems, you might notice pain, blurred vision, tearing, redness or an extreme sensitivity to light. Often, the cornea can heal itself after a minor infection. But sometimes, advanced issues like keratoconus, Fuchs endothelial dystrophy and dry eye syndrome require additional consultation and treatment plans.
A cataract is a clouding of the natural lens found inside the eye. When left untreated or ignored, a cataract can get worse and eventually cause vision loss and get in the way of life as you know it.
Cataracts can affect the way we see light, color and life in general. Common Cataract symptoms are blurred vision, difficulty seeing at night, halos around lights, glare, difficulty reading and frequent prescription changes for glasses. Often surgery is recommended to improve this condition as glasses, eye drops or Lasik are not helpful once a cataract has progressed in the eye.
LASIK procedures correct imperfections, or refractive errors, in the eyes’ ability to focus by using a laser to reshape the cornea. This procedure changes how the eye focuses, thereby improving vision without the need for corrective eyewear such as glasses or contact lenses. Learn More...
Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2017, the Light Adjustable Lens is the first and only adjustable intraocular lens that can be customized to refine your vision after cataract surgery. Learn More...
According to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the amount paid for eye surgeries to correct defective vision, such as LASIK or radial keratotomy, can be included in medical expenses and deducted from taxes. Learn More...
Glaucoma refers to a group of eye conditions that damage the optic nerve, which is the nerve that connects your eye to the brain. This damage is usually caused due to abnormally high pressure in your eye (intraocular pressure). Learn More...
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), LASIK is only approved for people aged 18 and older. There is currently no laser eye surgery that is approved for anyone younger. Learn More...
There is a common misconception that LASIK is not permanent and that it only lasts a few years. However, the reality is, LASIK can permanently correct the vision prescription of near-sightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism, that you come in with before the procedure. Learn More...
