Cataract Evaluation
We are all born with a lens inside our eye.  Over time, our natural lens begins to become cloudy.  This process causes the vision to become blurry or foggy.  Most cataracts are age-related and develop gradually over time.  On occasion, however, a cataract can be caused by trauma, uncontrolled diabetes or a congenital cataract.

Cataract Surgery
During cataract surgery, your surgeon removes your eye's natural lens and replaces it with a clear artificial lens. This technique uses a small (1/8'') incision into the eye that causes no bleeding and seldom needs a suture. Healing is rapid, allowing almost normal activity from day one, with excellent visual acuity shortly after surgery.

                     Eyelid Surgery
There are several different conditions that can affect the eyelids.  We offer procedural/surgical treatment/repair of many different eyelid conditions including:
  • Dermatochalasis: Excess eyelid skin

  • Ptosis: Drooping of one or both eyelids

  • Ectropion: Out-turning of the lower eyelid

  • Entropion: In-turning of the lower eyelid

  • Chalazion: An inflammed, blocked eyelid gland

  • Eyelid Lesions/Skin Tags

                         Laser Procedures
  • YAG Capsulotomy - A laser procedure used after cataract surgery to clean the lens implant you received during your cataract surgery to restore its original clarity.

  • Selective Laser Trabeculectomy (SLT) - A laser procedure used in glaucoma patients to lower the eye pressure or decrease the amount of glaucoma drops taken.

  • Peripheral Iridotomy (PI) - A laser procedure used in glaucoma patients to open a narrow angle and prevent future "closed-angle" glaucoma attacks.

  • Retinal Laser - A laser procedure used to treat diabetic retinopathy or retinal holes to prevent future complications from both.
