Our Procedures

No one likes the idea of eye surgery, but remarkable advances in ophthalmic surgery have made it easier than ever before.

Thanks to advances in microsurgical techniques and new laser equipment, whether you have cataracts, secondary cataracts, drooping eyelids, a diseased cornea, nearsightedness or farsightedness, today’s eye surgeons have capabilities they never envisioned in previous years.

Don’t wait to speak to an eyecare practitioner about possible treatments for your eye condition. Read through all of the vision services we offer for more information.

Blepharoplasty

Upper eyelid revision and lower eyelid revision, both known as blepharoplasty, reduce the drooping eyelid tissue. Overall, this improves the appearance of the eyelid and produces a rejuvenated and more alert appearance.

Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery is a safe and effective way to restore vision. It’s usually done on an outpatient basis and only requires a short recover period. The surgeon generally completes the procedure in less than 10 minutes, and complications occur in less than one in 1,000 cases.

Comprehensive Eye Exams

Comprehensive eye exams actually offer an accurate indication of your overall health because ophthalmologists are often the first healthcare professionals to detect chronic conditions such as hypertension and diabetes.

Corneal Transplants

A corneal transplant is done to replace a diseased or scarred cornea with a new one. Of all tissue transplants, corneal transplants are the most successful, with over 40,000 performed in the United States each year.

IOLs

​An IOL is a clear, plastic lens that requires no care and becomes a permanent part of the eye. Based on test results, a surgeon will recommend the best IOL for each individual patient. The three types of IOL are traditional, toric and multifocal.

iStent Glaucoma Surgery With Cataract Surgery

In 2012, the FDA approved a device called the iStent Trabecular Micro-Bypass Stent System to treat symptoms of glaucoma. This is the first device that has been approved in conjunction with cataract surgery to reduce intraocular pressure (IOP) in adult patients with mild or moderate open-angle glaucoma and a cataract who are currently on IOP medication.

Laser Trabeculoplasty

If you have open angle glaucoma and your eyesight is getting worse in spite of medication, your doctor may recommend laser trabeculoplasty as an initial surgical option. Laser trabeculoplasty uses a focused beam of light to treat the drainage angle of your eye.

Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery

Laser Cataract Surgery is a fully customizable, precision care solution for restoring your clearest possible vision. This pre-planned outpatient procedure offers predictability and convenience.

Refractive Surgery

Refractive lensectomy, also called refractive lens exchange, corrects nearsightedness or farsightedness. By replacing the eye’s natural lens, which has the wrong power, with an artificial intraocular lens implant (IOLs), this procedure provides the correct power for the eye. It uses the same techniques of modern cataract surgery.

Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT)

Glaucoma is a disease that damages the eye’s optic nerve. It can cause blindness if left untreated, though only about half of the estimated 3 million Americans who have glaucoma know they are affected. Glaucoma surgery is an outpatient procedure that generally requires one follow-up exam.
