Our Services

Comprehensive Eye Exams:

We offer comprehensive eye care for patients of all ages. Our doctors are trained and experienced to diagnose and treat eye disorders, both medically and surgically, from myopia, dry eyes to cataract surgery and everything in between.

Screening for common ocular diseases such as macular degeneration and glaucoma is easily performed in the office. Medical conditions such as diabetes and hypertension and can be asymptomatic, with early diagnosis important for preserving vision. Taking drugs such as plaquenil and amiodarone can affect your eyes. Annual eye exams are recommended to detect any changes and initiate treatment. Call us to schedule your appointment today!

Cataract Surgery:

During cataract surgery, a small ultrasonic probe is inserted into the eye which breaks up, or emulsifies, the cloudy lens into tiny pieces and gently aspirates those pieces out of the eye. We perform this minimally invasive, small-incision, no-stitch cataract surgery called phacoemulsification (“phaco”) surgery. To make your procedure as painless as possible, anesthesia is a combination of local and/or topical along with IV sedation. With the recent advance of foldable IOLs, artificial lenses can be implanted through the same small incision that is created in the phaco procedure. It is an outpatient surgery and is not only one of the most frequently performed surgical procedures in the United States, but it is also one of the safest and most successful surgical procedures that you can have.

Premium intraocular lenses (IOLs):

We are pleased to offer a variety of intraocular lenses for our cataract patients, from basic IOLs to the latest in accommodating, multifocal IOLs with night vision improvement. In addition to eliminating the cloudiness of cataracts, certain IOLs can improve refractive errors such as near- or far-sightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia and eliminate or significantly reduce your dependence on eye glasses.

There are many different lenses to choose from, talk with us about which IOL is right for you.

Corneal Transplant – DSAEK

Corneal transplantation involves replacing the damaged cornea with a healthy one from a donor (usually provided through an eye bank). We perform both traditional corneal transplant and Descemet-stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty or DSAEK, which is a partial transplant of the cornea. It is the latest technique that offers a much quicker recovery and visual rehabilitation. Both are outpatient procedures that require local anesthesia. These are the most common type of transplant surgeries and have very high success rates.

Refractive Surgery:

Electroretinogram (ERG)We are pleased to offer LASIK and PRK to our patients to eliminate the need for eye glasses. This involves making a thin flap in the surface of the cornea or removing the top layer of the cornea with a blade or alcohol depending on which procedure is deemed most appropriate for you. The excimer laser beam is then used to reshape the cornea’s curvature to improve vision. The flap is then closed and covered with a protective contact lens. Your vision is improved within the next few days!

Electroretinogram (ERG):

ERG is an eye test used to detect abnormal function of the retina due to inherited or acquired diseases such as retinitis pigmentosa and plaquenil toxicity. During the test, an electrode is placed on the cornea (at the front of the eye) to measure the electrical responses to light of the cells that sense light in the retina at the back of the eye. An ERG can also be useful in determining if retinal surgery or other types of ocular surgery such as cataract extraction might be useful. It is the only test that can detect plaquenil toxicity before significant vision loss has occurred.
