An ophthalmologist checking a patients eyes.

Ophthalmology is a specialized area of healthcare that deals with conditions and diseases of the eye. 

A patient may self-refer or be referred to an ophthalmologist. Our ophthalmologist diagnoses and treats a range of conditions, including but not limited to:


  • A cataract is a cloudy lens that may develop as you age or if an injury changes the tissue that makes up your eye lens. Most cataracts develop slowly and don’t seem to affect your eyesight early on. With time, cataracts will eventually interfere with your vision. During cataract surgery, your surgeon will remove your eye lens and replace it with an artificial lens.


  • Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that damage the optic nerve caused by high pressure in your eye. Many forms of glaucoma have no warning signs, so regular eye exams are important to detect glaucoma in its early stages. We offer advanced minimally invasive glaucoma surgery if treatment is needed.

Retinal Disease:

  • This group of diseases can affect any part of the retina, a thin layer of tissue on the inside back of your eye. Some retinal diseases and conditions include retinal tear, retinal detachment, diabetic retinopathy, epiretinal membrane, macular hole, macular degeneration, and retinitis pigmentosa. We offer intravitreal injections for retinal disorders, argon laser for retinal tears, and pan-retinal photocoagulation.

Treatments We Offer


  • Oculoplastic surgery focuses on the eyelids, orbit, tear ducts, and other structures around the eye. From drooping eyelids to blocked tear ducts, oculoplastics focuses on improving the functionality of the eye as well as the appearance.

Refractive Surgery:

  • Refractive surgery can be used to correct or improve your vision. The most widely performed type of refractive surgery is LASIK surgery where the laser is used to reshape the cornea. We implant the most advanced intraocular lenses, including Toric and Multifocal intraocular lenses, to provide you with optimal refractive outcomes.
