Ophthalmology at Weiss

At Weiss Memorial Hospital, our board-certified, fellowship-trained physicians provide comprehensive ophthalmology care, with cutting-edge treatment for cataract, glaucoma and many other eye conditions. Sophisticated equipment is used to test vision and the health of the eye; early detection is often the key to preventing blindness. When eye disease is diagnosed, treatment options include eye drops, lasers and/or microsurgery.

With many of our practices, licensed optometrists work alongside our ophthalmologists providing pre- and post-operative care and co-management of patients with glaucoma, corneal trauma and cataract. These optometrists provide eyeglass exams (refractions), contact lens fittings and optical services as well. They manage external diseases such as conjunctivitis, dry eye, blepharitis and other conditions that affect the surface of the eye. Additionally, low-vision services for those suffering from macular degeneration are also provided.

  • Eye examinations for adults and children, including refractions for eyeglasses and contact lenses
  • Cataract/Cornea treatment (corneal infections, cataracts, tumors, dry eye, eyelid and conjunctival disorders)
