Corneal cross-linking (CXL) is an advanced procedure that uses riboflavin and ultraviolet light to help reduce corneal thinning caused by ectasia.

Rigid gas-permeable contact lenses can help reshape the cornea to reduce symptoms caused by myopia, astigmatism, or a condition called keratoconus.

Addressing keratoconus-related vision problems and symptoms, Intacs are tiny, clear implants that we place near the cornea to improve its structure.

Keratoconus is a progressive corneal disorder that affects the structure and shape of the cornea, impacting the vision and causing refractive errors.

Penetrating keratoplasty (PKP) is a corneal transplant that removes the damaged part of the cornea and replaces it with healthy donor tissue.

Amblyopia (lazy eye) happens when poor eyesight causes the eye to wander inward or outward and prevents both of the eyes from working together.

Astigmatism happens when the cornea or lens is shaped like an egg instead of completely round, causing light to refract incorrectly off the retina.

Ranging from mild to severe and caused by bacteria or a virus, eye infections create uncomfortable symptoms that may require professional treatment.

Diplopia or double vision happens when a patient sees multiple images or things at once and is caused by a variety of eye or neurological conditions.

Caused by your eyes not producing enough tears or oil, chronic dry eye syndrome creates burning and red eyes, which may need specialized treatment.

If your glaucoma is becoming worse or more conservative options, such as MIGS, no longer work, we may perform a trabeculectomy or an Ahmed tube shunt.

Our ophthalmologists use innovative laser techniques to help decrease intraocular pressure, which may cause permanent vision loss or even blindness.

With a variety of innovative procedures to choose from, your minimally invasive glaucoma surgery is personalized to help you manage your symptoms.

Recovery Time

During your Visian implantable collamer lens (ICLs) treatment, we place the implant behind the cornea or the iris to help decease refractive errors.

Utilizing innovative laser technology to revise the shape of your cornea, LASIK is one of the most popular and well-known vision correction surgeries.

Photorefractive keratectomy, also known as PRK, is one of the very first advanced laser vision correction procedures that is still performed today.

Refractive lens exchange (RLE) is a surgery that helps with presbyopia by extracting the eye’s original lens and exchanging it with an artificial one.

Using advanced laser vision correction techniques, refractive eye surgery helps resolve vision errors, such as myopia, by reshaping the cornea.

If you have excess skin on your upper eyelid or bulging skin beneath your eye, blepharoplasty improves your ability to see and enhances your look.

BOTOX is an injectable wrinkle relaxer that's made from a purified type A botulinum toxin, which reduces wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes.

Styes and chalazions are common eyelid conditions that usually heal with at-home methods; however, sometimes they require draining or excision.

Caused by congealed vitreous fluid, flashes and floaters appear as bright lightning flashes or tiny black squiggles that drift across the eye.

Wet and dry macular degeneration is a serious and progressive eye disease that impacts the macula, which requires treatment to prevent vision loss.

Macular holes and macular puckers cause blurry and distorted vision and may require advanced eye surgery to help reduce these uncomfortable symptoms.

Anti-VEGF retinal injections help improve retinal conditions, such as wet macular degeneration, by temporarily reducing the growth of irregular veins.

As a natural occurrence when we age, retinal tears and detachments happen when the vitreous fluid in between the lens and retina starts to decrease.

Scleral buckle surgery helps repair a torn or detached retina by attaching a semi-hard plastic buckle to the scleral, which prevents further damage.
