Glaucoma is a condition that requires lifelong monitoring and treatment. While there is no "cure" for glaucoma, early detection and ongoing treatment can control the disease process.
Eye Care's physicians will work with you to find the best treatment plan for you. Treatment for glaucoma can include medication and/or surgery.
Glaucoma surgery may be performed using a laser or conventional surgical techniques. The kind of surgery your Eye Care physician recommends or advises is right for you depends on many factors, including the type and severity of your glaucoma and your other eye problems or health conditions.

Strabismus is a common eye muscle imbalance condition among children (and some adults). In some cases, corrective eyeglasses can be prescribed for your child. Other treatments may involve surgery. When appropriate, Eye Care physicians perform strabismus surgeries to offer the best chance for the eyes to work well together.

The need for cataract surgery varies for each patient and becomes necessary when your vision becomes bothersome or cloudy enough to interfere with your daily routine.
Modern cataract surgery is a commonly performed procedure. Eye Care surgeons use state-of-the-art, small incision, no stitch techniques.

In this technological age, however, surgical procedures are safe, comfortable, and recovery time is quick.

The surgeons at Eye Care Physicians & Surgeons are certified by The American Board of Ophthalmology.
