Adults and children should have regular comprehensive eye exams to diagnose refractive errors and allow for early detection of ocular diseases.

A retinal exam checks the back of the eye to screen for ocular diseases, including glaucoma, macular degeneration, and retinal tear or detachment.

Dry eye is a chronic condition caused by a lack of tears, leading to stinging, redness, and a gritty feeling in the eye, but it can be treated.

Age-related macular degeneration occurs when the macula (the central part of the retina) progressively breaks down, which impairs your central vision.

Diabetic retinopathy is a complication of diabetes due to high blood sugar levels and requires professional treatment to stop or prevent vision loss.

Red eyes or bloodshot eyes can be caused by a broken blood vessel, ocular trauma, or allergies, but our specialists provide treatment solutions.

Common eye infections, such as pink eye and blepharitis, often cause itching, redness, and irritation in the eye, but they are very treatable.

Eye allergies can cause discomfort, itching, redness, and burning, but they are fairly simple to treat with methods, like prescription eye drops.

Keratoconus is a progressive ocular condition that causes the cornea to gradually bulge into a cone shape, which leads to blurry, distorted vision.

Standard and specialty contact lenses are available to correct a wide range of refractive errors while fitting comfortably and providing clear vision.

LASIK is a popular refractive eye surgery that uses a laser to change the shape of the cornea and drastically improve a patient's visual clarity.

SMILE is a state-of-the-art laser vision correction surgery that uses a minimally invasive technique to improve nearsightedness and astigmatism.

Refractive lens exchange involves removing and replacing the natural eye lens with an artificial IOL and is often done to correct severe hyperopia.

Glaucoma is an eye disease that damages the optic nerve as a result of high intraocular pressure and can lead to complete blindness if left untreated.

MIGS (minimally invasive glaucoma surgery) procedures help reduce fluid buildup within the eye to prevent further damage to the optic nerve.

The iStent is a tiny device that helps lower intraocular pressure in glaucoma patients and is often implanted at the same time as cataract surgery.


Selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) uses a laser to stimulate healthy tissue in the eye to lower intraocular pressure and slow optic nerve damage.

Cataracts result from built-up proteins that cloud the eye lens, which can make it difficult to read in dim lighting or see clearly at night.

Refractive cataract surgery involves removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with a customized IOL that provides significantly clearer vision.

Traditional cataract surgery uses high-quality technology to precisely break up and remove a cataract and replace it with an artificial IOL.

The cornea is the clear barrier that refracts light onto the retina so you can see clearly, but several corneal diseases can affect your vision.
