Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine that deals with eye physiology, anatomy and diseases. A specialist in this branch of medicine is called an ophthalmologist. The Department of Ophthalmology at La Peer not only offers breakthrough eye surgeries but rather a medical program beginning with consultation, moving through diagnosis and treatment, and high quality aftercare to ensure that your eyes remain healthy and conditions do not develop or reoccur.

The ophthalmologists at La Peer offer the latest eye surgeries including cataract surgery, vitrectomy, tear duct surgery, orbital surgery, and cosmetic eye surgery. The doctors of La Peer are extensively involved in medical research and clinical trials. Our aim is to be at the forefront of patient care and to ensure our physicians remain at the forefront of medical innovation.

La Peer Health Systems was also named one of the 100 Greatest Places To Work by Becker's ASC Review. We take great pride in our professional and courteous staff and are honored to be included on Becker's 2013 ASC Review.

Cataract Surgery

A cataract is a clouding of the lens of the eye. The lens is located behind the iris (the colored part of the eye) and is involved in focusing images on the retina, the light-sensitive tissue in the back part the eye. In a young, healthy eye, this lens is clear and the image it creates on the retina is clear. This image is sent to the brain for processing into the image that we "see". If this lens is cloudy, as in the case of cataracts, the transferred image will be blurry. Cataracts are extremely common in the aged population, with more than half of Americans aged 80 or older either living with cataracts or having had cataract surgery in the past. Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness in the world. This is a troubling statistic because cataracts are treatable, thanks to the technology that is available today... read more >
