LASIK

LASIK is the most frequently used procedure in the U.S. for laser vision correction. LASIK stands for Laser Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis. Most cases of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism are correctable with the LASIK procedure. The complete procedure takes only a few minutes.  Financing available to qualified individuals.

Need a permanent solution to glasses and contacts?

Refractive Surgery may be an option for you! Refractive Surgery fixes vision conditions related to light not focusing properly on the retina. Watch this short video to learn more.

LASIK vs. PRK

What's the difference between LASIK and PRK?
Both procedures are common for correcting vision but differ slightly. Watch this short video to see what those differences are.

CATARACTS

As you get older, the natural lens, located behind the iris in your eye, may gradually begin to get “cloudy” and interfere with light and images getting to your retina. As the lens becomes cloudier, your vision slowly becomes more blurred.  Surgery is the only way to remove the cloudy lens and replace it with an intraocular lens to correct vision.  Dr. Davies will discuss the different types of IOL's that will work best for you.

IOL's that fit YOUR lifestyle!

When it’s time for cataract surgery, replacing your current lens with an Intra-Ocular Lens that will accommodate your unique lifestyle and vision needs is an important decision.  Your favorite activities and occupation play a huge part in your IOL decision.  Watch this short video to see what your options are.

DYSFUNCTIONAL LENS SYNDROME (DLS)

After years of stable and clear vision, are you experiencing glare and blurry vision? This decline may be from normal aging of the lens, called Dysfunctional Lens Syndrome, or DLS. DLS occurs in 3 stages. Watch this informative video on what to expect and when.

GLAUCOMA

GLAUCOMA OFTEN HAS NO EARLY WARNING SIGNS. No pain, no discomfort, no blurry vision. Only advanced glaucoma will affect your vision.  Watch the short video to see what glaucoma simulations look like. Don't wait for symptoms before you visit your eye doctor!

MICROSCOPIC DEVICES CAN SLOW THE PROGRESSION OF GLAUCOMA

A micro-stent can be inserted into the eye during cataract surgery to lower internal eye pressure and increase the outflow of fluid. If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with Glaucoma, watch this informative video to learn more.

ECP

Tired of using Glaucoma Drops?  Endoscopic Cyclophotocoagulation, or ECP, may eliminate the need for glaucoma drops as shown in this video.

CLEAR LENS EXCHANGE

Tired of hassling with glasses and contacts?  You may qualify for a clear lens exchange now so you won't need Cataract surgery later.  Call our office to schedule an appointment with Dr. Davies to see what he recommends.

PREMIUM IOL'S

Today's lens technology offers optimal natural vision with premium Intraocular Lenses (IOL).  In order to determine which lens is best for you, consider your lifestyle.  Do you focus more on near or far objects?  Is color and contrasts important to you?  How often do you drive at night?  Make sure you go over these with Dr. Davies to help determine which lens or combination of lenses will work best for you.

LATEST IOL TECHNOLOGY

What is an Extended Depth of Focus (EDOF) IOL?

When your cloudy or inflexible lens is replaced (usually due to cataracts) with an Intraocular Lens (IOL), you can choose to have an IOL with EDOF, such as the Symfony IOL. Watch this short video to learn more about the benefits of this lens.

MACULAR DEGENERATION

Age-Related Macular Degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in the elderly. Early detection is a critical first step!  Watch this short video to learn more.

OCULAR ALLERGIES

Are your allergies due to your CAT or your PILLOW?  In-office Allergy Testing is now available so you can know the cause of your ocular allergies.  Once they have been identified, Dr. Davies can prescribe the correct treatment plan to relieve your symptoms.  Covered by most insurance plans.  FSA and HSA accepted.

What is MGD?

Meibomian Gland Dysfynction is where the meibomian glands in the eye do not produce the proper quantity or quality of oil in the outer layer of the tear film. If you suffer from Dry Eye, watch this 2 minute video to see if MGD may be the cause.

REFRACTION TESTING

Do you know what a refraction test is?  If you're asked, “Which is better, 1 or 2?” then you're probably having a refraction test. Medical insurance does not pay for refraction testing, but most vision plans do.  Watch this short video to find out more information on this test.

VISUAL FIELD TEST

Dr. Davies uses a Visual Field Test to measure your central and peripheral vision.  This will tell him if you are able to see beyond your direct line of sight and diagnose vision problems as well as monitor your vision over time.  Early detection is key for preserving your vision.

HYPERTENSIVE RETINOPATHY

Did you know...If you have Systemic Hypertension, also know as chronic High Blood Pressure, not only are your heart and kidneys affected, but also your vision if left untreated?  Having Hypertensive Retinopathy makes it harder for blood to reach the retina at the back of the eye causing double vision, decreased eye sight and blind spots.

DIABETIC RETINOPATHY

If you or a loved one have diabetes, it's important to get routine eye exams.  Even if you don't have any trouble seeing, it's important to get your eyes checked regularly.  High blood sugar from diabetes increases the risk of having eye problems.  If it's been more than 2 years since your last eye exam, call us!

THE IMPORTANCE OF COMPLETE EYE EXAMS

Your eyes are the windows to your health!  Dr. Davies can find warning signs of high blood pressure, diabetes, and a whole range of other systemic health issues, just by examining your eyes. Many of these health issues have no warning signs.  The eye's tissues and blood vessels make a good barometer for wellness.  If it's been more than 2 years since your last eye exam, call us!

DO YOU HAVE DRY EYE?

If you're experiencing redness, burning, excessive tearing, or blurry vision.  You may have Dry Eye.  Watch this video to see if you suffer from Dry Eye then contact us to see Dr. Davies so he can put you on a treatment plan to relieve your specific symptoms.

EYE HEMORRHAGE

An eye hemorrhage is when a blood vessel under the subconjuctiva breaks and bleeds. Watch these short videos to see how they occur.  Although they may look frightening, in most cases, no treatment is required.

RETINOSCHISIS

Retinoschisis occurs when layers of the retina separate which may lead to nerve damage and vision problems. It often does not present symptoms and some people lose their peripheral vision or experience retinal detachment over time which requires surgery to correct.
