Would you like to decrease your dependency on glasses or contact lenses? This is now an option with the use of premium lifestyle lens implants. Individuals suffering from cataracts previously had only a monofocal lens implant option after surgery. NEW multifocal IOL technology provides multiple ranges of vision: near, intermediate and far, giving you the opportunity to reduce or even eliminate your dependency on glasses!
Did you know there is now advanced testing available for diagnosing macular degeneration? Macular Risk® is a DNA test that identifies genetic markers associated with Macular Degeneration. By analyzing these genetic markers along with smoking history, we can identify who needs more frequent eye examinations and who may benefit from eye vitamins.

Blade Free High Definition LASIK Vision (HDLV) Refractive surgery involves procedures that reduce refractive error such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism.
LASIK is a procedure in which a thin surface corneal flap is created using a microkeratome to expose the underlying corneal tissue. An excimer laser is then applied to reshape the cornea based on the patient's pre-operative refractive error. After application of the laser, the corneal flap is repositioned. The visual recovery is rapid.
The PRK procedure does not involve creation of a corneal flap but a similar excimer laser treatment based on the patient's pre-operative refractive error is applied. We are offering blade free High Definition LASIK Vision (HDLV) using a Wave Front corneal topographer and an excimer laser. The blade free vision is provided by using the Intralase laser enhancing procedures safety and accuracy. If you are interested in laser vision refractive surgery, make an appointment today.
