Eye exams are the starting point for all our care, from vision-corrections surgeries to ongoing eye health management. With our advanced medical technology, we’re able to screen for eye diseases, monitor changes in your eye health, and generate the most precise vision prescription possible. We offer eyewear such as glasses and contacts for vision correction, but you may be more interested in permanent vision solutions. If that’s the case, we provide free consultations for LASIK and our other eye surgery options. An appointment is required for any optical shop visits.
Every year, millions of people choose LASIK to reduce or eliminate their dependence on eyewear. We’ve set out to be one of the best LASIK providers by providing our personal, familiar brand of care throughout the entire process. Our highly-experienced LASIK team uses cutting-edge, all-laser LASIK technology to make this procedure as safe and beneficial to your vision as possible. We also offer hassle-free financing options to make sure vision correction is affordable for every patient.
Our Pinellas Park ophthalmologists can walk you through how LASIK or one of its alternatives — such as SMILE, PRK, RLE, or Visian ICL — can improve your vision during a free LASIK evaluation.
Cataracts, a condition that causes the eye’s natural lens to become cloudy, worsening vision over time. Cataracts are common in adults starting at around 40 years of age. We provide custom cataract surgery to remove the eye’s clouded natural lens and replace it with one of our many artificial intraocular lens (IOL) options. IOLs restore vision, and may even improve your vision after surgery.
During a free cataract surgery consultation, one of our ophthalmologists in Pinellas Park can help you decide if cataract surgery is the next step for you. If so, we’ll explain the IOL options available to you and the benefits of each.
Eye exams aren’t just for glasses prescriptions; they’re how we detect and manage a variety of eye diseases long before they affect your eyesight. We use a variety of different treatments for conditions like glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and retinal issues. We can also provide timely care in the event of an eye care emergency, including painful changes in vision and eye injuries.
One of the most common conditions we treat is dry eye syndrome. staff in Pinellas Park offers at-home and in-office treatments to alleviate symptoms of dry eye and address its underlying causes.
Plastic surgery can completely revitalize your look, but you might be surprised to hear that it’s often necessary to restore vision. Eyelids and the muscles controlling them age, and are susceptible to sagging, turning inwards or outwards, or responding less over time. These issues can obstruct your vision and make you look less youthful and alert.
We can evaluate you for several oculofacial plastic surgery options here at Pinellas Park, such as blepharoplasty, to lift your eyelids and restore their natural function.
