Cataract Evaluation

We are all born with a lens inside our eye.  Over time, our natural lens begins to become cloudy.  This process causes the vision to become blurry or foggy.  Most cataracts are age-related and develop gradually over time.  On occasion, however, a cataract can be caused by trauma, uncontrolled diabetes or a congenital cataract.

Cataract Surgery

During cataract surgery, your surgeon removes your eye's natural lens and replaces it with a clear artificial lens. This technique uses a small (1/8'') incision into the eye that causes no bleeding and seldom needs a suture. Healing is rapid, allowing almost normal activity from day one, with excellent visual acuity shortly after surgery.

                      Eyelid Surgery

There are several different conditions that can affect the eyelids.  We offer procedural/surgical treatment/repair of many different eyelid conditions including:

  • Blepharoplasty - Removal of excess eyelid skin

  • Ptosis Repair - Surgical raising of droopy eyelids

  • Ectropion and Entropion Repair - Restoration of in-turning or out-turning of lids to their normal positions

  • Removal of Chalazia - Drainage of inflammed and blocked eyelid glands

  • Removal of Eyelid Lesions/Skin Tags

                         Laser Procedures

  • YAG Capsulotomy - A laser procedure used after cataract surgery to clean the lens implant you received during your cataract surgery to restore its original clarity.

  • Peripheral Iridotomy (PI) - A laser procedure used in glaucoma patients to open a narrow angle and prevent future "closed-angle" glaucoma attacks.
