Cataract Surgery

Cataracts are the leading cause of vision loss in the world, and cataract surgery is the most commonly performed surgery in America. Cataracts, or clouding of the natural lens in the eye, affect over 50% of people over age 50 and over 70% of people over age 70. This is usually an age-related disease, although it can also result from eye trauma, steroid use, diabetes and other diseases.

Cataract Surgery

Retina Treatments

Our board-certified ophthalmologist, Dr. Dan Shepard, is fellowship-trained to treat medical and surgical disease of the vitreous and retina. Our retinal services include treatments for macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachment, eye trauma, evaluation of floaters, and much more.

Retina Treatments

Cosmetic Services

BOTOX injections are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world. BOTOX or botulinum type A is a medication used to relax the muscles of the face that create wrinkles. The injection causes a temporary paralysis of the muscle, and the effect wears off after several months.
