Services we offer


Our full service optical department offers a wide variety of frames, lenses, and contacts.

We can treat Glaucoma in office with Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty.


Our practice takes care of patients diagnosed with Cataracts.

It is very important for patients with diabetes to get their eyes checked on a regular basis.

This procedure is a special laser treatment used to help improve a patient’s vision after a cataract surgery.

Dry Eye occurs when the eye does not produce an adequate tear production. We diagnosis this using InflammaDry and Tear Osmolarity testing to ensure proper diagnosis and treatment.

We treat patients with Glaucoma using appropriate eye drops, medication, and if necessary, surgery.

Treatment includes medication or if necessary, laser treatment. Devices such as glasses, corrective lenses, and contact lenses are prescribed to help improve vision.
