This practice was created with the vision of providing highly personalized surgical eye care.
While eye surgery used to be very standardized, recent technological and surgical advances allow us to tailor our treatment to your individual needs. Unfortunately, many ophthalmology practices miss this opportunity and continue in their old ways. It takes time and a dedicated team to fully realize the best option for you.
By having the primary eye care doctors to focus on the long-term health of your eyes, we have been able to partner and give you the thorough evaluation, education, and discussion needed to make the best surgical decision for you. We look forward to seeing you and helping you to see your best.
