Our Procedures

We offer a range of procedures at our ambulatory surgery center (ASC) to assist you and your physician in treating an eye condition. Click on each procedure to find out more information, including an overview of each procedure, what to expect and how to prepare.

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

Cataracts are the leading cause of vision loss among people over 55.  Cataract Surgery is an effective procedure that can help restore a person’s vision.

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.

Corneal Transplants

A corneal transplant is done to replace a diseased or scarred cornea with a new one. Of all tissue transplants, corneal transplants are the most successful, with over 40,000 performed in the United States each year.

Eyelid Surgery for Aging Eyes

Surgery is usually the best treatment for drooping eyelids. This specialized surgical procedure for dermatochalasis is called blepharoplasty, and is usually performed by an ophthalmologist who has special training in handling these delicate areas surrounding your eyes.

Implantable Contact Lenses

Implantable contact lenses (also called phakic intraocular lenses or IOLs) are a surgical option for correcting moderate to severe myopia (nearsightedness). An alternate choice to LASK or PRK eye surgery, IOLs can produce better and more predictable vision outcomes than laser refractive surgery.

Intraocular Lens

An intraocular lens, or IOL, is a clear, plastic lens inserted during cataract surgery that requires no care and becomes a permanent part of the eye.

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.

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.
