Our ophthalmologists can help you with disorders and diseases of the eye. Ophthalmologists specialize in surgeries for many eye-related issues. Our team of providers are experts in all areas of eye care and eye health.
Ophthalmology provides the following services:
- Testing for glaucoma (an eye disease) and cataracts (a clouding of the eye's natural lens due to aging)
- Eye surgeries
- Cataract surgery
- Cornea (the front of the eye) disorders
- Neuro-ophthalmology (a subspecialty of both ophthalmology and neurology which involves the nerves and brain)
- Oculoplastics (special surgery around the eye) reconstructive and cosmetic surgery
- Help from vitreoretinal specialists for problems that affect the retina (inner part of eye) and vitreous (a clear fluid between the eye lens and retina)
For routine eye exams and contact lenses, please visit our optometry and optical department.
Cataracts are one of the most common causes of vision loss, especially as we age. Surgery is the only way to take care of cataracts. You can't stop cataracts from happening with lifestyle changes or take care of them with medication.
Patients with symptoms of vision loss or changes should make an appointment with an ophthalmologist. Learn more about cataract surgery and answers to frequently asked questions.OR
We offer advanced eye care for patients who have problems with their corneas. The cornea is the clear window of the eye that allows it to focus light as it enters the eye.
Our cornea specialists have in-depth training, including a fellowship focused on the management of corneal diseases, cornea surgery and advanced laser surgery procedures.
Cornea problems include:
- Cornea scars
- Cornea infections or ulcer (sore on the front of the eye)
- Fuchs’ endothelial dystrophy (a cornea disease)
- Pseudophakic bullous keratopathy (a cornea disease)
- Keratoconus (an eye disease)
- Anterior basement membrane dystrophy (an eye disease)
- Dry eye syndrome
- Pterygium and pingueculum (an eye tissue problem)
Glaucoma is a type of eye disease that can damage the optic nerve and cause vision loss and blindness that can't be corrected. The optic nerve is a bundle of nerve fibers that send signals from the eye to the brain.
You have a greater chance for getting glaucoma if you:
- Have increased eye pressure
- Have a family history of glaucoma
- Have a history of eye trauma or injuries
- Are of African or Latino heritage
- Are older
Often there are no symptoms during the early stages of this disease. A complete eye exam by our specialist can help find glaucoma.
There is no way to completely heal from glaucoma, but if it's found early, we can help stop more vision loss. We may suggest medications, minor laser surgery or other types of surgery.
We can help find glaucoma and closely watch it with several methods and tools:
- Eye pressure tests
- Visual field testing
- Optic nerve imaging
- Optic nerve photography
- Gonioscopy (a type of eye exam)
- Glaucoma medications
Some examples of minor eye surgeries we do:
- Selective laser trabeculoplasty (a way to help deal with pressure in the eye)
- Cataract removal
- Specialized glaucoma surgery (iStent inject®, trabectome)
- Trabeculectomy (a way to help deal with pressure in the eye)
- Glaucoma tube shunt surgery
Neuro-ophthalmologists can help you with visual problems that involve the nervous system. These kinds of problems are not caused by the eyes themselves. Neuro-ophthalmologists have specialized training in problems of the eye, brain, nerves and muscles.
Common problems neuro-ophthalmologists help with:
- Optic nerve problems
- Visual field loss
- Unexplained visual loss and visual problems
- Double vision
- Abnormal eye movements
- Thyroid (a gland in the body) eye disease
We may also suggest Botox® injections (shots) to help with some of these kinds of eye problems.OR
Oculoplastic surgery is performed for both medical and cosmetic reasons and includes:
- Reconstructive surgery
- Facial plastic surgery
- Cosmetic procedures
Common problems oculoplastic surgeons help with include:
- Eyelid lifts, both functional and cosmetic
- Brow lifts, both functional and cosmetic
- Surgery to remove lower eyelid bags
- Cosmetic Botox, including non-surgical brow lift
- Cosmetic fillers
- Botox for facial spasms
- Orbital tumors
- Removal of blind, painful eyes
- Reconstruction after cancer removal
- Removal of eyelid lesions
- Medical and surgical care for tearing in both children and adults
We also offer specialized care for patients who have problems involving the posterior segment (back part) of the eye. A vitreoretinal specialist provides medical and surgical care for these kinds of problems.
Some examples of posterior eye problems include:
- Macular degeneration (an eye disease when someone loses vision over time)
- Diabetic retinopathy (damage to blood vessels in the eye that can affect vision)
- Macular holes (a hole in the retina)
- Macular puckers (scar tissue on the retina that can affect vision)
- Venous occlusions (when blood veins in the eye are blocked)
- Uveitis (when the uvea or middle layer of the eye is inflamed or swollen)
- Retinal tears and detachments
