Whatever eye disease or ailment impacts your eyes or vision, we have the skills and resources to deliver personalized, effective treatment for your diagnosis.

Featured Ophthalmology Procedures


If you suffer from nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), or astigmatism, you may qualify for this type of surgery that eliminates the need for prescription glasses or contacts. This procedure involves your doctor reshaping your corner to improve how light hits the retina.

Cataract Surgery

Is blurry vision impacting your day-to-day as the years go on? You may have cataracts, most of which occur as a result of normal changes in your eyes as you age. Our ophthalmologist uses minimally invasive cataract removal techniques to improve the vision of our patients faced with this condition.

Pterygium Removal

Pterygium is a growth of clear, fleshy tissue of the eye that can extend onto the cornea, with UV exposure believed to be a primary cause. If the pterygium grows far enough to impact vision, surgery may be recommended. Our doctor performs no-stitch pterygium removal surgery, a technique designed to shorten recovery time and keep discomfort at bay.

Pars Plana Vitrectomy

Our ophthalmologist can perform this procedure to remove the vitreous gel from the eye, making for more optimal access to the retina. As a result of the vitrectomy, various repairs can be made and myriad eye diseases can be effectively treated.
