Comprehensive eye exams go beyond a typical vision test to evaluate the overall health of your eyes, including any existing or potential eye disease.

Myopia (nearsightedness) is an eye condition in which the eye shape is elongated, causing light to hit the retina improperly and blurring far vision.

Hyperopia (farsightedness) is an eye condition in which the eye is shortened, causing light to hit the retina improperly and blurring near vision.

Presbyopia is a type of vision impairment that begins around the age of 40 due to the natural thickening and loss of flexibility of the eye's lens.

Common eye infections, including styes, pink eye, and blepharitis, can be mild or severe and are usually caused by viruses, bacteria, or fungi.

Styes and chalazions are very common eyelid inflammations that may go away on their own or can be drained or excised if necessary due to irritation.

Dry eye syndrome is the eyes' inability to produce sufficient or good-quality tears, leading to pain, itching, redness, grittiness, and blurry vision.

Eye allergies are very common, and the symptoms can range from mild to severe and include itching, watering, red eyes and swollen, itching eyelids.

Uveitis occurs when the uvea (middle part of the eye wall) becomes inflamed, usually due to underlying autoimmune disease, injury, or infection.

Scleritis is a serious inflammation of the white part of the eye that is most commonly associated with systemic autoimmune and inflammatory disease.

Refractive surgeries are done to correct refractive errors, like myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism, and include LASIK, LASEK, PRK, RLE, CK, and ICL.

LASIK is a fast, effective, and safe method of vision correction that works by changing the shape of the cornea via advanced laser technology.


Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) involves the removal of the epithelium, which can grow back in days, to access and reshape the cornea beneath.

For patients not eligible for laser vision correction, RLE replaces the natural lens of the eye with an artificial lens to correct refractive errors.

EVO Visian ICL is made for people who want to experience life without the hassle of glasses or contact lenses.

Cataracts develop as the proteins in the lens of the eye start to degrade, which happens to everyone with age and due to other environmental factors.

The Apthera™ IOL is a replacement lens exclusively designed to give you clear, focused vision from near to far, and everything in between.

In micro-incision cataract surgery, an extremely fine diamond blade creates the incision through which the natural lens is removed and replaced.

Laser cataract surgery utilizes cutting-edge technology to place and make the tiny, precise incision necessary for removing and replacing the lens.

Intraocular lenses are artificial lenses used in cataract removal surgery to replace the cataract and restore or even improve the patient's vision.

The Light Adjustable Lens is an alternative option to IOLs during cataract surgery in order to achieve customizable, clearer vision results.

Corneal damage stemming from disease, infection, or injury can lead to vision loss; however, there are many safe and effective treatments available.

Keratoconus, a progressive disease of the cornea, can lead to vision loss or blindness as it gradually thins and changes the shape of the cornea.

Corneal cross-linking, or CXL, strengthens the collagen fibers within the cornea using riboflavin and UV light to slow the progression of keratoconus.

A cornea transplant can be performed to replaced damaged tissue in any of the five corneal layers, which can stop vision loss or even restore vision.

A superficial keratectomy treats the anterior (outer most) layer of the cornea to remove or smooth away scar tissue, calcium buildup, or other damage.


Phototherapeutic keratectomy (PTK) is a laser treatment that removes damaged corneal tissue lying deeper than the eye's epithelium (surface layer).

Prokera and AmnioGraft utilize human amniotic membrane from sterile Cesarean births to greatly aid in healing after corneal or ocular surface surgery.

Glaucoma refers to any one of several eye conditions that damage the optic nerve, often leading to vision loss due to high intraocular pressure.

Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) refers to the newest innovations in glaucoma treatments to reduce intraocular pressure with less downtime.

A trabeculectomy eases glaucoma symptoms by creating a very tiny hole in the eye wall to help drain built-up fluid and reduce internal eye pressure.

Diabetic retinopathy is a condition affecting Type 1 and Type 2 diabetic patients in which chronically high blood sugar damages retinal blood vessels.

Macular degeneration is an age-related condition that affects central vision due to thickening proteins and abnormal blood vessels in the macula.

Plaquenil, a drug used for certain autoimmune disorders, can damage the retina in some patients with long-term use or above-recommended dosage.
