The Latest Technologies & Advanced Procedures
- Our elite team of ophthalmologists uses the finest equipment and advanced technologies to perform small incision cataract and glaucoma surgeries, as well as other common outpatient procedures.
- A cataract is a clouding of the normally clear crystalline lens inside the eye. It is not a film on the eye surface. Cataracts form as a natural part of the aging process. Microsurgical techniques are used to painlessly break the cataract into tiny pieces that can be removed from the eye.
- Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that cause gradual loss of vision without warning and often without symptoms. Damage to the optic nerve causes vision loss. Advanced laser and surgical procedures are used to treat glaucoma.
