Surgical Options

Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery is performed in the comfort and safety of our state-of-the-art outpatient surgery center using the latest treatment
techniques and technology. Our talented eye surgeons will remove the natural lens that has become clouded, and replace it with an artificial
lens, known as an IOL, or intraocular lens. This lens is left in the eye permanently for sustained vision.

LASIK

LASIK procedure is performed in the comfort and safety of our our state-of-the-art laser center. The procedure is performed with the
Technolas Perfect Vision 217-A laser. This FDA approved Excimer laser is used to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and
astigmatism, as well as, having the advantage of an eye tracker and iris recognition. The procedure takes only a few minutes to complete.
Patients remain awake and comfortable during the entire procedure. Most
patients report little, if any, discomfort.

Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is an outpatient surgery that is performed on the eyelids to correct droopiness by removing excess skin, fat and muscle. As
you age, the muscles supporting the eyelids stretch and weaken which results in the buildup of excess fat on upper and lower lids. This can
cause sagging brows, drooping upper lids and bags under the eyes. Severely drooping lids can also impair vision.

Strabismus Surgery (Eye Muscle)

Strabismus surgery is commonly performed to align the eyes. Surgery is recommended for those with moderate and severe strabismus,
and is a good option when prisms are not tolerated. The surgery may involve moving one or more eye muscles to a new position,
lengthening or shortening a muscle. In most cases the surgery is performed under general anesthesia and is an outpatient procedure.
Overall, the benefits gained from having strabismus surgery greatly outweigh the risks involved.

Glaucoma Surgery

Trabeculectomy is a glaucoma surgical procedure performed to lower eye pressure. The procedure involves the surgeon creating a tiny
passage way from the inside to the outside of your eye. This helps fluid drain better from the areas it is presently not draining.  A
trabeculectomy can lower the pressure in your eye and help prevent more damage to the optic nerve.

Trabeculectomy is more commonly used after other treatment options have not been successful or are simply not stopping the increasing
IOP (Intraocular Pressure).
