What Patients Have to Say About Our Ophthalmology Practice
Other Featured Ophthalmology Services and Eye Conditions We Treat
In addition to LASIK, many individuals throughout Erie and beyond visit our practice for solutions that address a wide range of common eye and vision problems. Our ophthalmologists frequently provide:
Cataracts cause the lenses of your eyes to become cloudy, resulting in blurry vision, glare, and other symptoms. Our ophthalmologists provide state-of-the-art cataract surgery at our Erie practice to restore your vision. When performed by experienced practitioners, this is considered one of the safest procedures in modern medicine.
Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) is an alternative to LASIK that corrects nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The primary difference is that PRK does not involve creating a corneal flap, making it a suitable choice for patients with thin corneas.
Our ophthalmologists can help you control glaucoma and avoid or minimize damage to the optic nerves. Since glaucoma symptoms can often go unnoticed, it’s crucial to schedule regular eye exams with us to detect the condition in its earliest and most treatable stages.
Do you have trouble seeing things that are far away? You may suffer from myopia, also known as nearsightedness. Our Erie ophthalmologists can provide treatment for myopia and other refractive errors. From surgery to corrective eyewear, we have you covered.
Budgeting for Eye Care Treatment
Our eye care team in Erie, PA, believes that financial obstacles shouldn’t stand in the way of getting the treatment you need.
