Frequently Asked Questions
We only perform surgery. Any diagnostic testing will be performed prior to your appointment with one of our Board-certified ophthalmologists. Our physicians have specializations in retinal, glaucoma, cataract and corneal disorders and are considered leaders in their field, having developed new techniques to treat eye conditions.
Eye surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, which means you go home the same day. Surgical times vary, but most often, you can go home within two hours after your procedure. You should bring someone with you to drive you home, as you will not be permitted to drive immediately after surgery.
