Our Procedures

No one likes the idea of eye surgery, but remarkable advances in ophthalmic surgery have made it easier than ever before.

Thanks to advances in microsurgical techniques and new laser equipment, whether you have cataracts, secondary cataracts, drooping eyelids, a diseased cornea, nearsightedness or farsightedness, today’s eye surgeons have capabilities they never envisioned in previous years.

Don’t wait to speak to an eyecare practitioner about possible treatments for your eye condition. Read through all of the vision services we offer for more information.

Blepharoplasty

Upper eyelid revision and lower eyelid revision, both known as blepharoplasty, reduce the drooping eyelid tissue. Overall, this improves the appearance of the eyelid and produces a rejuvenated and more alert appearance.

Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery is a safe and effective way to restore vision. It’s usually done on an outpatient basis and only requires a short recover period. The surgeon generally completes the procedure in less than 10 minutes, and complications occur in less than one in 1,000 cases.

Cataract Surgery with ORA

The ORA System™ utilizes intraoperative wavefront aberrometer, similar to the technology that has made LASIK a customized, precise procedure.

Comprehensive Eye Exams

Comprehensive eye exams actually offer an accurate indication of your overall health because ophthalmologists are often the first healthcare professionals to detect chronic conditions such as hypertension and diabetes.

DSAEK

Corneal specialists can isolate the diseased inner layer of the cornea and replace the layer through a process called Descemet’s Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSAEK). If your inner corneal layer is swollen and not working properly, you may be a candidate for DSAEK.

Glaucoma Surgery

While glaucoma is often treated with medicated eye drops, sometimes surgery becomes necessary. We perform selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT), a procedure that uses a low-level energy laser to target specific cells in the trabecular meshwork, the eye’s drainage channels.

IOLs

​An IOL is a clear, plastic lens that requires no care and becomes a permanent part of the eye. Based on test results, a surgeon will recommend the best IOL for each individual patient. The three types of IOL are traditional, toric and multifocal.

Oculoplastics & Reconstructive Surgery

Oculoplastic surgery refers to a wide variety of surgical procedures that treat the eyelids, tear ducts and the face.

Refractive Surgery

Refractive lensectomy, also called refractive lens exchange, corrects nearsightedness or farsightedness. By replacing the eye’s natural lens, which has the wrong power, with an artificial intraocular lens implant (IOLs), this procedure provides the correct power for the eye. It uses the same techniques of modern cataract surgery.

ReVista: Advanced Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery

ReVista® is a fully customizable, precision care solution for restoring your clearest possible vision. This pre-planned outpatient procedure offers predictability and convenience.

YAG Laser Procedure

Problems after cataract surgery are rare but can occur. Sometimes the tissue that encloses the artificial intraocular lens becomes cloudy and blurs the vision. This is called an after-cataract. This can develop months or even years after cataract surgery. This outpatient procedure is treated with a laser, called YAG laser capsulotomy.
