Primary Eye Care Services

You can schedule a complete eye exam as one of our primary care services. Other services include:

  • Common Eye Conditions
  • Dry Eye Treatment
  • Pediatric Eye Care

Pediatric Eye Care

To prevent disease and visual disorders and maintain your child’s eye health, detection and prevention are necessary. We test all aspects of the vision of your child to ensure the healthiest vision. Your child will have a Comprehensive Eye Exam.

Eye Muscle Surgery

This includes treatment for the following:

  • Strabismus
  • Nystagmus

Strabismus results when there is a failure of the two eyes to maintain proper alignment and work together as a team. One eye looks at the object, while the other is misaligned inward or outward.
Nystagmus, in most cases, causes the eyes to look involuntarily from side to side in a rapid, swinging motion rather than remaining fixed on a person or object.

Laser Cataract Surgery

Cataracts are diagnosed through various tests as well as dilated eye exams. We may employ tonometry and other diagnostic measures to ensure an accurate and precise lens placement. We are able to determine your candidacy for laser cataract surgery and predict any problems that may hinder a successful outcome. Cataract surgery replaces the natural lens of the eye with an artificial lens referred to as an IOL or intraocular lens. This surgery is highly successful and has been dramatically improved over the years. Our surgical team utilizes the most advanced femtosecond laser on the market and can help deliver a precise and customized cataract surgery experience. We can restore your vision so that you have a better ability to work, read or just simply enjoy the beautiful sights life has to offer. With minimal risk involved, cataract surgery is one of the most performed surgical procedures in the United States and carries one of the highest success rates of any surgery type. This is an outpatient surgery and you will be able to return home the same day. We use the latest lens options to help eliminate your dependency on glasses or contacts.


Recommended for patients 21 and older, LASIK is a life changing procedure that can eliminate your need for glasses and contacts. LASIK is performed separately for each eye and each procedure takes about five minutes. Both eyes are typically performed on the same day. Have an evaluation with our LASIK specialist and see if you are a candidate today!


Our doctors diagnose and treat all types of problems pertaining to the retina. Some of the diseases and conditions include:

  • Flashing lights and floaters
  • Diabetic Retinopathy
  • Eye Cancers (Ocular Melanoma and Retinoblastoma)
  • Inherited Retinal Degeneration
  • Retinal Tear
  • Macular Degeneration
  • Retinal Detachment
  • Retinitis Pigmentosa


Included is Blepharoplasty, known as eyelid surgery, which is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the eyelids or improve vision through the removal of excess skin.

Since our doctors practice at multiple locations at various times during the week, it is best to call one of our offices to discuss the type of care that you need and the timing of your appointment. To schedule an appointment at our Riverview clinic, you can also call 813. 392. 3311.
