Blindness or low vision affects 3.3 million Americans age 40 and over, or one in 28 people, according to the National Eye Institute. This figure is projected to reach 5.5 million by the year 2020. Having a problem that affects your vision can be worrisome , but receiving the best available care from a highly-qualified doctor specializing in ophthalmology can bring peace of mind.
At The Polyclinic, Dr. Todd Johnston and Dr. Sameer Khan care for patients of all ages who experience vision loss as well as many other conditions that affect the eyes and surrounding tissues. All of our ophthalmologists are board-certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and have numerous years of experience.
Whether it's treatment for cataracts, glaucoma or macular degeneration (three common diseases that can cause vision loss) or a comprehensive eye exam and prescription for glasses or contacts, our board-certified physicians provide total eye care. Additionally, Dr. Johnston and Dr. Khan both specialize in LASIK procedures.
We now perform cataract laser surgery using the LenSx® Laser. The LenSx® Laser was the first femtosecond laser cleared for use in cataract surgery. Now, the LenSx® Laser System continues to lead the way in refractive cataract surgery through continual upgrades, ensuring surgeons have access to ongoing innovations in image-guided control, lens fragmentation, corneal incisions and software. It all adds up to a refractive cataract surgery procedure that's smarter, better and faster. More infomation can be found here.
Our physicians can treat a variety of conditions including:
- Dry eye/red eye
- Eyelid disorders
- Blurred vision
- Diabetes-related eye problems
