Alcon AcrySof® IQ Vivity ™ Intraocular Lens

  • The non-diffractive AcrySof® IQ VivityTM Extended Vision Posterior Chamber Intraocular Lens Model DFT015 (referred to as AcrySof® IQ VivityTM IOL) is a UV-absorbing and blue light filtering foldable intraocular lens (IOL). This IOL, compared to a monofocal IOL, provides an extended range of vision from distance to near without increasing the incidence of visual disturbances.

  • Also available in toric designs, Vivity is built on Alcon’s trusted and proven AcrySof IQ IOL platform that has been implanted in more than 125 million eyes globally.5 According to results from a U.S. clinical trial, patients who had the Vivity lens implanted experienced renewed vision and lifestyle benefits, including:

  1. 94% and 92% of Vivity patients reported very good or good vision at distance and arm’s length, respectively, without glasses in bright light, with vision of 20/20 at distance and greater than 20/25 at intermediate

  2. Comparable visual disturbance profile to a monofocal IOL

Alcon AcrySof® IQ Toric Intraocular Lens Implant

The proven performance of AcrySof® IQ Toric IOLs can allow cataract patients with astigmatism to meet their vision goals with less dependence on glasses or contacts for distance vision.


In a healthy human eye, the cornea is cylindrically shaped, like a basketball. Astigmatism occurs when the cornea is not symmetrical and is shaped more like an egg. When light passes through a cornea affected by astigmatism, the image is not focused on the retina causing blurred or double vision.

Optiwave Refractive Analysis (ORA)  System™

ORA System™Technology is a state-of-the-art equipment used to provide real time measurements of the patient’s eye during cataract surgery. By using this device, our surgeons can get multiple measurements, which are then analyzed by ORA System™ to provide specific information used to optimize decision making in correcting the vision of the surgical eye.

This device can help our surgeons minimize errors in choosing intraocular lens implant powers during your cataract surgery.  This technology enhances the results of cataract patients with history of previous LASIK and more complex cataract patients.

Telescopic Implant for Advanced Macular Degeneration

CentraSight Implantable Miniature Telescope 

The telescope implant, created from VisionCare Inc., has been demonstrated to improve vision and quality of life for suitable individuals affected by End-Stage Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD). The tiny telescope (about the size of a pea) is implanted inside one eye, behind the iris (the colored part of the eye). The implant is so small, it may be barely noticeable in your eye.  Once implanted inside the eye, the telescope projects images in your field of view onto healthy areas of your central retina outside of the degenerated macula. The image is enlarged, reducing the effect the blind spot has on central vision. Normally the healthy areas outside of the macula are used for peripheral or “side vision.” The magnification provided by the telescope implant (2.2X or 2.7X) makes it possible to see or discern the central vision object of interest.

All-Laser Wavefront Optimized Custom LASIK

Ziemer & WaveLight® Allegretto Laser Systems

The WaveLight® Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q excimer laser uses a series of technical innovations to optimize laser vision correction, providing excellent clinical results in Wavefront Optimized® and Wavefront-Guided treatments. The system’s high-speed laser and eye tracker yield both efficiency and safety, leading to enhanced and excellent outcomes.

Corneal Cross-linking

Avedro  KXL® System 

Corneal collagen cross-linking is the first and only FDA-approved therapeutic treatment for progressive keratoconus that combines the use of ultra-violet light and riboflavin eye drops.

Cross-linking is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure for the treatment of progressive keratoconus. FDA approved epi-off cross-linking combines the use of prescription eye drops, Photrexa® Viscous (riboflavin 5’-phosphate in 20% dextran ophthalmic solution), Photrexa® (riboflavin 5’-phosphate ophthalmic solution), and ultra-violet A (UVA) light from the KXL® system to create new collagen cross-links and leads to the stiffening of the cornea. The goal of the procedure is to stiffen the cornea to slow or prevent further progression of the condition and preserve your vision.

Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS)

kahook 2.jpg

Kahook Dual Blade® (KDB)


The Kahook Dual Blade is a novel goniotomy blade created to produce a more complete removal of TM through a minimally invasive approach. It was launched in the United States in 2015 and was designed to achieve near complete removal of TM with minimal, if any, surrounding tissue damage.

Goniotomy with the Kahook Dual Blade is indicated for the treatment of open angle glaucoma, narrow angle glaucoma, and ocular hypertension. Patients with uncontrolled IOP or those who have controlled IOP but other factors such as multiple drug allergies, drug intolerance, or non-compliance may be considered for this procedure. It is approved as a standalone procedure or in combination with phacoemulsification (phaco) cataract surgery.

Hydrus Shunt.jpg

Hydrus Microstent ®

Hydrus Microstent has been clinically proven through multiple prospective, randomized, controlled studies to consistently reduce medication usage and intraocular pressure (IOP) through a unique Tri-Modal mechanism of action.  The Hydrus Microstent was designed to enhance fluid outflow in multiple ways to help patients achieve predictable outcomes.  Hydrus Microstent is placed in Schlemm’s canal, a part of the drainage system of the eye. Fluid then flows along the canal (via the Hydrus Microstent) and into the eye’s natural outflow channel to reduce eye pressure.

 iStent inject®

The iStent inject® W stents create two bypasses, or openings, between the front part of your eye and its natural ability to drain fluid. Once inserted, you will not be able to see or feel the stents, but they will be working to help reduce your eye pressure.

Iridex Micropulse.jpg

Iridex MicroPulse® Laser Therapy


MicroPulse® Transscleral Cyclophotocoagulation (TSCPC) using the Cyclo G6™ glaucoma laser and the MP3 Probe is a safe, fast procedure. MicroPulse TSCPC delivers repetitive, low-energy laser ‘micropulses’ which reduce risks associated with other destructive therapies. MicroPulse TSCPC is a noninvasive therapy that does not require any incisions or implants. It can be performed in an office setting or in the operating room, as determined by the doctor. The procedure does not cause tissue damage, therefore the doctor may repeat it as needed for glaucoma management.


OMNI® Surgical System


The OMNI® Surgical System is indicated for canaloplasty (microcatheterization and transluminal viscodilation of Schlemm's canal) followed by trabeculotomy (cutting of trabecular meshwork) to reduce intraocular pressure in adult patients with primary open-angle glaucoma.  OMNI® targets all three points of resistance: Trabecular meshwork, Schlemm’s canal, and Collector channels.

  • Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty


Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty, or SLT, is a form of laser surgery that is used to lower intraocular pressure in glaucoma. It is used when eye drop medications are not lowering the eye pressure enough or are causing significant side effects. It may sometimes be used as initial treatment in glaucoma.

  • Laser Vitreolysis (Laser Floater Removal) 


Laser floater removal is an outpatient-based procedure, which involves the use of a specially designed YAG laser to vaporize the vitreous strands and opacities. Highly effective, it has a low complication rate and offers a high degree of patient satisfaction. It can also delay or obviate the need for surgery.

  • Laser Peripheral Iridotomy

Laser Peripheral Iridotomy (LPI) is recommended for those with a risk for Acute Angle Closure Glaucoma that can lead to permanent vision loss or severe eye pain.

  • Nd:Yag Laser Posterior Capsulotomy

"YAG Capsulotomy" is a laser surgery that is performed to create a small hole in the cloudy lens capsule for patients who had previous cataract surgeries. This allows light to pass through the membrane to the retina at the back of the eye and restore vision.
