Regular eye exams allow our team to screen for vision concerns and help identify eye conditions and diseases that may not yet show signs or symptoms.

Refractive errors affect the eyes' ability to see clearly. These common conditions may be addressed with corrective lenses like glasses or contacts.

Eyeglasses are a simple and effective solution for treating refractive errors such as myopia and hyperopia, allowing you to experience better vision.

Contact lenses are thin lenses worn directly on the eye, offering a convenient way to treat refractive errors and experience better vision.

Cataracts are the clouding of the eye's natural lens. With surgery, a cataract can be removed and replaced with a clear, artificial intraocular lens.

During cataract surgery, the eye's natural clouded lens can be replaced with a premium intraocular lens to further improve vision after surgery.

If you have blurry vision after cataract surgery, it may be due to posterior capsule opacification (PCO), which can be treated with laser capsulotomy.

Glaucoma is a category of eye disease where rising intraocular pressure due to fluid buildup causes damage to the optic nerve and vision loss.

A laser peripheral iridotomy (LPI) creates a small hole in the outer edge of the iris to help control rising intraocular pressure and treat glaucoma.


The selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) is a surgery typically performed to help fluid drain from the eye as a treatment for open angle glaucoma.

Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery improves fluid drainage in the eye, lowering intraocular pressure and slowing glaucoma progression.

Macular degeneration is a progressive disease that causes central vision loss over time. Certain types can be treated with photodynamic therapy.

Floaters and flashes are specks and streaks of light in your vision that are often normal; however, an increase can be a sign of a vision problem.

Retinal vascular occlusion occurs when a clot develops in the blood vessels that carry oxygen to your retina, the light-sensitive tissue in your eye.

Keratoconus is a condition where the cornea (front window of the eye) thins and weakens, reshaping into a more oblong structure and distorting vision.

As part of our oculoplastic services to help improve the appearance of the eyes, our center provides BOTOX® injections for concerns like crow's feet.

JUVÉDERM® is a popular cosmetic injectable that can treat ocular aesthetic concerns, like bags under the eyes, for a youthful and rejuvenated look.

Diabetics are at higher risk of developing eye conditions like glaucoma, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy, so yearly diabetic exams are crucial.

Diabetes raises your risk for multiple eye conditions; regular exams to monitor your eye health are important in order to maintain your vision.

There are a variety of conditions that may be affecting your eyes, including blepharitis, eyelid lesions, chalazions, uveitis, cysts, and red eye.

Strabismus is a condition where the eyes are misaligned, which results in a "cross-eyed" appearance and vision issues if not corrected.

Dry eye syndrome means your eye is not producing sufficient or effective lubrication, which can lead to discomfort and raise the risk of infection.


Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy is an FDA-approved and minimally invasive treatment option for eye health conditions like chronic dry eye.
