Helping You See The World Around You!

At Advanced Eye Care, we perform laser assisted cataract surgery, refractive surgery, glaucoma surgery, and tear duct surgery as well as laser treatment of diabetes, after cataract laser treatment, retinal tears, glaucoma, and LASIK surgery. We perform minor ophthalmic surgeries in our office such as eyelid surgery or lesion removal. Other surgeries such as cataract laser surgery are performed at local hospitals and ambulatory clinics. We perform cataract surgery using the most modern techniques – phacoemulsification by laser or ultrasound to break up the cloudy lens in the eye. Patients will also have the option to choose multifocal and astigmatism correcting premium intraocular lenses for their cataract surgery.
