LASER PROCEDURE

LPI for Glaucoma

Laser Peripheral Iridotomy (LPI) is a treatment for closed angle glaucoma. Using a laser, a small hole is made in the outer part of your iris. This is completed in a matter of minutes. It can also be used to reduce eye pressure in other patients where that is an issue. LPI is covered by most insurance plans and reimbursed by Medicare.

LASER PROCEDURE

SLT for Glaucoma

Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) reduces eye pressure for glaucoma patients, and may eliminate or reduce the need for eye drops. SLT improves the outflow of fluid from the eye by stimulating the body’s natural mechanisms to remove fluid. Completed in a couple of minutes, this procedure is comfortable for the patient and requires zero recovery time. SLT is covered by most insurance plans and reimbursed by Medicare.

LASER PROCEDURE

YAG Laser Capsulotomy

After cataract or RLE surgery, 30% of patients develop a cloudy scar tissue behind their lens implant that can interfere with clear vision. A YAG laser easily clears away the scar tissue to quickly restore clear vision.

SURGICAL PROCEDURE

Eyelid Lesion Removal

During this procedure, a variety of bumps and growths on a patient’s eyelids are removed. This procedure usually requires no stitches.

SURGICAL PROCEDURE

Punctal Plug Insertion

This procedure alleviates dry eyes by inserting a plug into the eye’s tear drainage system. These plugs help keep more tears on the surface of the eye, which is where the most moisture is needed. The plugs can be removed at a later time, if the patient wishes.

SURGICAL PROCEDURE

Punctal Probing and Irrigation

Watery eyes and excessive tearing may be resolved by opening partially blocked tear ducts. A simple and comfortable procedure diagnoses and treats watery eyes by flushing a small amount of fluid through the tear drainage system.

SURGICAL PROCEDURE

Chalazion Excision

A chalazion, or sty, is a common problem with an eyelid. When one of the tiny glands in the eyelid is clogged, the gland becomes swollen, red, inflamed, and painful. Warm compresses and medication may help to resolve the sty. If the sty does not respond to conservative treatment, then it can be drained quickly and safely with a minor surgical procedure.

SURGICAL PROCEDURE

Pterygium Removal

A pterygium is a growth of the conjunctiva (the clear skin that covers the white of the eye) onto the cornea. It can be unsightly and may cause redness, irritation and/or blurry vision. A pterygium can be removed in the operating room quickly, safely, and without stitches.

RETINAL PROCEDURES

Laser Retinopexy

A laser retinopexy is used to seal a hole or a tear in your retina with the goal of preventing retinal detachment

RETINAL PROCEDURES

Laser Demarcation

Laser demarcation is a type of laser procedure that can repair minimally symptomatic or asymptomatic retinal tears.

RETINAL PROCEDURES

Focal Laser Treatment

Swelling around the center part of your retina, a condition known as Macular Edema, can be treated with focal laser treatment.

RETINAL PROCEDURES

Panretinal Photocoagulation

Panretinal Photocoagulation can be used to slow the development of abnormal blood vessels over the surface of your retina. Many times, diabetic retinopathy can cause the growth of these abnormal vessels.
