Eye Institute

The DHR Health Eye Institute is your trusted partner for restoring, enhancing, and protecting your eye health. We are experts in ophthalmic surgery and provide a wide range of treatments for vision correction, cataract, glaucoma, dry eye, and other eye disorders. We understand how unique your eyes are; we take a personalized approach to patient care, which ensures excellence health outcomes and improved quality of life.

Corneal Disease

We treat the full spectrum of cornea diseases and injuries, including infections and scratches.

Corneal Transplantation

Corneal transplantation (keratoplasty) replaces a damaged cornea with a donated one. Damaged cells on the cornea can cause it to become swollen, white, blur vision and cause pain. A full or partial-thickness corneal transplantation provides patients to once again have clear vision and see an improvement of symptoms.

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy, or diabetic eye disease, refers to eye problems that people may face as a complication of diabetes. These problems can cause severe vision loss or blindness due to changes in the blood vessels of the retina.

Eye Disease Prevention and Management

We are dedicated to preventing and relieving symptoms of eye disease and improving our patients’ vision. From routine eye exams to the most complex conditions, we offer advanced testing and treatment for the full spectrum of eye conditions.

Eye Evaluations

Our comprehensive eye evaluations aim to identify any potential sight threatening conditions in order to begin proper treatment and management. Conditions that may threaten your vision include diabetes, high blood pressure, glaucoma, and others. Eye evaluations also determine if patients require visual correction, either through eyeglasses or LASIK surgery.

Glaucoma Treatment

We provide the latest in medical treatment, therapy, and surgical procedures to treat and manage glaucoma in patients of all ages. Early diagnosis of glaucome is extremely important; immediate treatment can help delay progression of the disease. Treatment options include medication, surgery, laser trabeculoplasty, or a combination of these.

Macular Degeneration Evaluation and Management

We take a multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of macular degenerative diseases, with the end goal of improving the patient's quality of living. With early diagnosis and proper treatment, we can delay the progression of macular degeneration.

Ocular Surface Disease

Ocular surface disease, also called dry eye disease, is a chronic, complex and progressive eye condition that affects the fragile area of the cornea. Early diagnosis optimal to limit the risk of serious or persistent complications.
