If you have any questions qbout refractive surgery, feel free to discuss this with one of the doctors or our refractive surgery coordinator.


The doctors also work closely with a number of cataract surgeons in the area to co-manage patients with cataracts. We perform the pre-operative evaluation and manage patient care after surgery for the convenience of the patient.
