Welcome to our Doctors Only section! Procedures such as Cataract, Refractive, Corneal, and Glaucoma surgery must be approached with a great deal of consideration. Careful patient selection, superior technique, appropriate treatment, complication management and excellent follow-up help to ensure optimum outcomes. Our goal is to bring ophthalmologists, optometrists, opticians and ancillary ophthalmic personnel together to deliver the most efficient and highest quality eye health care!
In this rapidly advancing field , continuing education (CE) is essential to maintain the highest standard of care for our patients. Our wide variety of CE programs are fully accredited by the Ohio State Board of Optometry.
