OUR SERVICES

We offer a wide range of  medical and surgical ophthalmologic services:
Adult and Pediatric Comprehensive Eye Exams:

Having regular eye exams by an ophthalmologist can detect eye diseases in the early stages and allow for earlier treatment and better outcomes. Alternatively, a routine exam with no problems detected can leave you reassured that your eyes are in optimum health and are ready to continue being your window to your world!

LASIK/Laser Vision Correction:

Ready to throw away your glasses and contact lenses for good? Depending on your eyes, you may be a candidate for laser surgery to see great without any glasses or lenses. LASIK/Laser Vision Correction surgery is not for everyone; call today for a free consultation!

Cataract Surgery:

Over time, the natural lens in the human eye can lose its clarity. This can be a normal part of aging. This is referred to as cataracts. There are other causes which include diabetes, other diseases as well as certain medications. Modern catact surgery enables us to safely remove the damaged lens of the eye and replace it with a new, high tech lens implant that remains clear for life.

There are exciting, newer options in cataract surgery which allow the surgeon to not only replace the cataract but custom order a "premium" lens implant that can give a patient maximally clear vision. Options include correction of astigmatism as well as multifocal and extended depth of focus lenses which may limit dependence on distance or reading glasses.

Surgery is done as an outpatient, usually causes only minimal discomfort and typically only takes several minutes.

Glasses and Contact Lens Prescriptions:

Time for new glasses? Stop by for a refraction, where your eyes are carefully measured and tested to determine the prescription that will give the most clear and comfortable glasses possible! Interested in contact lenses? Our expert lens contact lens fitters will take their time determining the best  power and fit for the unique shape of YOUR eye. Once that is determined, you will be coached on how to insert, remove and clean them properly so that you will safely and comfortably enjoy glasses free vision!

Retinal Surgery:

The retina is like a film that coats the back of the eye, sending images to the optic nerves and brain. Some potentially blinding retinal problems require surgery to fix, including retinal membranes and detachments. Dr. Rosenbaum is our dedicated retina specialist, who focuses on these complex cases. Let his 35+ years of experience be put to your benefit if you are looking for a retina surgeon.

Glaucoma Management:

Referred to as the "silent thief of sight", glaucoma is usually a slowly progressive, painless eye disease that can rob a person of their sight before the he or she even realizes there is a problem. The key to preventing vision loss is early detection and treatment. People who have a family history of glaucoma are considered to be at higher risk for developing the disease; careful routine screening is crucial.

Options for treatment include eye drops, office-based laser surgery, or operating room-based procedures. We are proud to offer some of the latest treatment options available today including MIGS (microincisional glaucoma surgery), which involves implanting the smallest FDA approved human implant device, called the iStent.

Diabetic/Hypertensive Eye Exams:

Did you know that most systemic diseases can affect a person's eyes? As a matter of fact, some diseases are so closely linked to eye complications that patients need yearly comprehensive exams to "head off" any possible eye damage as well as to help the primary physician in tracking the progress of their disease management. The two illnesses most commonly associated with ocular involvement are diabetes and hypertension. 

If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, hypertension, or any other systemic disease, put your mind at ease. Call our office for an appointment for a comprehensive eye exam today.

Macular Degeneration:

Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is a well known cause of vision loss in the elderly. There may or may not be a family history of AMD. There are two types of AMD ("dry" or "wet") and each type requires different management, ranging from diet and vitamins to laser and intraocular medications. The first step to protecting oneself from vision loss from AMD is early detection. Our doctors have the knowledge and gold standard diagnostic equipment to detect and treat AMD.  

DMV Forms:

Need your driver license renewed? Come in for a complimentary vision screening, no appointment necessary.

Dry eyes, allergic conjunctivitis, blepharitis, keratoconus, pterygium, eyelid lesions, ptosis, flashes, floaters and retinal tears are commonly encountered in our office, as are countless other eye problems.
