Cataracts

A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye that affects vision. The lens lies behind the iris and the pupi and works much like a camera lens, focusing light onto the retina at the back of the eye where an image is recorded.

Eyelid Surgery

The upper and lower eyelids help protect the eye in numerous ways. When you blink, your eyelids spread moisture over your eyes. Blinking also helps move dirt or other particles off the surface of the eye.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a group of common eye conditions that result in damage to the optic nerve.The causes vary, but glaucoma is most commonly associated with higher than normal pressure within the eye or a “normal” pressure that is too high for the health of an individual’s optic nerve.

Lens Implants

During cataract surgery we replace the cloudy lens of the eye with an artificial lens implant, restoring your eye’s inherent potential for vision. This technology, called an intraocular lens implant (IOL) has been successfully used for over thirty years.

Laser Surgery

We offer a number of different laser procedures including the treatment of secondary cataract, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and retinal tears.
