Do you perform surgical procedures?

Superficial Foreign Body Removal – Yes.
Punctal Plugs for the treatment of Dry Eye Syndrome – Yes.
Pre and Post-operative Cataract and LASIK – Yes.
Penetrating Injuries and Intraocular Surgeries – No.

Our doctors routinely remove superficial foreign bodies (Ex. Metallic foreign bodies). If an object has penetrated the eye, or the eye requires intraocular surgical intervention, we will refer our patients to the appropriate ophthalmology specialist for those procedures.

Our doctors perform the pre-operative consultation and post-operative surgical care for cataract and LASIK surgery. We work with our ophthalmology colleagues to co-manage our patients. The pre-operative consultation includes an extensive dilated examination to evaluate the retina, examination of corneal tissue and prescription. We determine if our patients are candidates for the appropriate surgical procedure and discuss at length the advantages and disadvantages of such procedures for them and the appropriate surgeon for their case. Post-operatively, we see our patients to monitor for infection and guide them through their post-operative care. Generally, our patients are seen 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, and 3 months after both cataract and LASIK surgery.
