Aside from Cataract Surgery, LASIK and glaucoma treatment, here are some of the services we offer:

Comprehensive Eye Examinations

 

A routine eye exam for the detection and prevention of ocular disease includes:

  • Tests for binocula vision and color vision

  • Tonometry to screen for glaucoma

  • External examination of the eye and lids

  • Slit lamp bimicroscopy to detect cataracts and corneal disease

  • Muscle balance evaluation to determine ocular alignment

  • Vitreous examination for floaters

  • Retinal examination for detection of macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, hypertensive retinopathy and a myriad of other retinal diseases

  • Bimicroscopy of the optic nerve which is especially useful in detecting glaucoma

Optical Services

  • Refractions

    to determine eyeglass prescriptions for nearsightedness(myopia), farsightedness(hyperopia), astigmatism and presbyopia.

Diagnostic Testing & Imaging


Glasses and Contact Lenses

 

We can measure your refractive error in our office and help determine what an appropriate eyeglass or contact lens prescription is for you. We can also help with the fitting of new contact lenses. We offer a wide range of glasses and contact lenses. Contact lens options include: soft, gas permeable, toric, bifocal, and colored lenses.

Restor Intraocular Lens

Cataract Surgery

 

A cataract is a clouding that occurs on the lens of the eye-- usually as a natural part of the aging process. Cataracts are a major cause of vision loss in the United States. Most people will eventually experience some cataract formation as they age. The good news is that cataract surgery is a highly effective way to restore vision impaired by cataracts.

In an eye without cataracts, light passes first through the clear lens before being focused on the retina (nerve cells at the back of the eye). The image formed on the retina is then transmitted to the brain. Cataracts interfere with this normal visual process. Cataracts make the lens of eye cloudy, so light does not focus on the retina properly. The result is hazy, milky, or distorted vision.

Dr. Liva performs cataract surgery with an advanced technique called phacoemulsification. In this technique, ultrasound is used to break up the cataractous lens first into segments. The fragments are vacumned out through a tiny incision. Dr. Liva then implants the highest quality intraocular lenses (clear artificial lenses) available through a tiny (2.4 millimeter) incision.

The incision made in cataract surgery heals on its own, usually without requiring any stitches. A stitch may be placed if it is determined that the wound may not be water tight. Anesthetic eye drops keeps you comfortable during the procedure. We have a Board Certified Anesthesiologist monitor your condition and keep you comfortable the entire time. Intravenous sedation is administered as necessary.

There has never been a better time to have cataract surgery. Recent advances have made the procedure safer, more effective, more comfortable with the additional benefit of faster visual recovery.
