A cataract is the clouding of the eye’s lens. Caused by the clumping of protein in the lens, cataracts cause blurry vision and may continue to grow until treated or removed. Common treatment methods include stronger eyeglass prescriptions or the surgical removal of the cataract with intraocular lens implantation.

Oculoplastic procedures combine the accuracy and precision found in ophthalmic surgeries with the aesthetic foundations of plastic surgery.
Laser-assisted in-situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) is an FDA-approved vision correction procedure that corrects refractive errors. These include nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. It is performed on nearly 1 million patients annually to help reduce dependency on visual aids and provide visual freedom. LASIK works because it permanently reshapes the cornea using an excimer and femtosecond laser.

I have been a patient for several years for diabetes-related consults, routine eye exams, cataract surgery and eye sensitivity with environmental allergies. His “bedside manner” is perfect. He is warm, friendly, sincere - but is always prompt and efficient, too."
