Procedures

Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that repairs droopy eyelids by removing excess skin, muscle and fat. As you age, your eyelids stretch, and the muscles supporting them weaken. As a result, excess fat may gather above and below your eyelids, causing sagging eyebrows, drooping upper lids and...

Chalazion Excision

A surgical chalazion removal procedure is performed in the office under local anesthesia. Unless complications arise, a person undergoing this procedure can go home immediately after the removal of the cyst.  Because a local anesthetic is applied, you will feel that something is being done to your...

Conductive Keratoplasty

NearVision CK® is a non-laser procedure that can reduce or eliminate farsightedness and presbyopia and offer those who have difficulty seeing small print the opportunity to read again without bifocals or reading glasses. It is best suited for patients over the age of 40 who had good vision until...

Corneal Transplantation

A corneal transplant is a surgical procedure to replace the central portion of your cornea with corneal tissue from a donor.  A corneal transplant can be recommended to restore vision in a person who has a damaged cornea.  It can also be done to reduce pain or other symptoms associated with some...

Entropion and Ectropion Repair

Entropion is a condition in which your lower eyelid turns inward so that your eyelashes and eyelid margin rub against the surface of your eye, causing irritation and discomfort.  Ectropion is a condition in which your lower eyelid turns out.

iLASIK

LASIK (laser-assisted intrastromal in-situ keratomileusis) is a laser vision correction procedure that reduces the amount of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism that an individual has.  iLASIK is today’s most innovative Laser Vision Correction procedure and has been used to treat more...

Intacs Corneal Implants

Keratoconus is a progressive eye disease, which causes a thinning of the cornea, the clear front surface of the eye. As the disease progresses, the quality of one's vision deteriorates and contact lenses or glasses no longer become a satisfactory solution for most people.  For many, an invasive...

iStent

The iStent is a procedure to help safely and effectively manage your eye pressure. The iStent is used in conjunction with cataract surgery to help reduce the intraocular pressure in patients with open-angle glaucoma. The iStent creates a permanent opening in the eye’s natural drainage system to...

Laser Peripheral Iridotomy (LPI)

Laser Peripheral Iridotomy (LPI) is type of laser procedure used in closed-angle glaucoma.  It is used to equalize the pressure between the front and back chambers of the eye.  This is done by using a laser to create a very small hole(s) in the iris to allow the fluid to drain from the back to the...

Lid Lesion Removal

Many different types of benign eyelid lesions exist which include seborrheic keratoses, papillomas, verrucas, nevi (moles), and skin tags.  These commonly occur in people of all ages.  Many eye lid lesions can be diagnosed by clinical evaluation.  However, an excisional biopsy may be recommended...

Monofocal Lenses

Monofocal Intraocular Lenses (IOLs) are the traditional lenses used for cataract surgery.  This type of lens is very effective at restoring functional distance vision.  They have one point of focus.  While distance vision is improved, most patients still need to wear glasses for other distances,...

Multifocal and Accommodating Lenses

Multifocal IOL is a “deluxe” type of lens designed to replace cataracts and help correct more than one point of focus.  Their goal is to correct distance vision and other ranges, like reading or intermediate, to give you greater independence from glasses.  This lens may not be recommended for...

PRK

Photorefractive  Keratectomy (PRK) was the first excimer refractive laser surgery procedure to be approved by the FDA.  Similar to LASIK, PRK is the process of using an excimer laser to reshape the cornea, changing the focusing power of the cornea, so that light focuses on the retina.  Both...

Refractive Lens Exchange

A Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) is an alternative refractive surgical procedure for people who might not be a candidate for LASIK.  It can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. It may even be possible to correct presbyopia with a multifocal or accommodating intraocular lens (...

SLT Laser

Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) is a highly effective laser procedure that reduces the pressure inside the eye.  It uses short pulses of low-energy light to target cells in the drainage system to increase drainage and help lower the eye pressure.  Given the gentle action of SLT, it can be...

Toric Lens

The Toric IOL is a lens designed to correct astigmatism.  Astigmatism is when the surface of the cornea has both flatter and steeper curves, similar to the shape of a football.  When the cornea has an uneven curvature, vision becomes distorted.  In order to correct this distortion, correction has...

Trabeculectomy (Filtering Microsurgery)

Trabeculectomy (Filtering Microsurgery) is usually recommended only if eye drops and laser eye surgery cannot lower the eye pressure to a safe level.  In this procedure, a new drainage canal (filter) is created surgically for the eye.  The excess fluid in the eye is then collected in this filter...

Tube Shunt Surgery

Tube Shunt Surgery is a surgical procedure in which a glaucoma drainage device, or implant, is actually inserted into the eye to bypass the obstructed drainage system of the eye.  It is usually only recommended for very severe cases of glaucoma.  

Visian ICL Implantation

Staar Visian ICL (Implantable Collamer/Contact Lens) is a surgical option for treating high myopic (nearsighted) refractive errors. It differs from laser refractive procedures because it involves implanting a lens inside the eye, not reshaping the cornea. The ICL is implanted through a small...
