Approximately 12 million Americans ages 40 and older have some form of impaired vision. This includes blindness and low vision, which cannot be corrected by medicine, surgery or glasses.

That’s why it’s so important to get the best care you can for your eyes. Ophthalmologists are medical doctors who specialize in eye and vision care. They also do eye surgery.

All of our ophthalmologists are board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and have years of experience. They treat patients of all ages who have vision loss or other conditions that affect the eyes and surrounding tissues.
