Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure, and is a brief procedure. After the cataract surgery, patients can go home to rest in comfort, and follow their doctor’s instructions.

Eyelid Surgery

Complete eye health includes having healthy eyes and healthy eyelids. Common eyelid problems include excess eyelid skin, droopy eyelids or eyelids that turn inward or outward. Fortunately, they can be corrected with surgery.

Glaucoma Surgery

Glaucoma is a disease of the optic nerve – the part of the eye that carries the images we see to the brain. The optic nerve is made up of many nerve fibers, like electric cable containing numerous wires. When damage to optic nerve fibers occurs, blind sports develop.

Laser Surgery

Lasers use a complex system of crystals, gases, lenses, mirrors, and mechanisms for focusing and cooling to produce an extremely intense, uniform beam of light of a single color or wavelength. The energy of this beam can be focused very precisely on diseased eye tissue.
