Familiar Faces

Speaking of family, yours (or your friends) will be waiting for you in the full comfort of our large waiting area.

From cataract to cryopexy, endolaser to eye muscle surgery, each procedure is performed in a single, one-day visit. You’re in, you’re out. Never hurried, but always convenient. This is the way eye surgery should be.
