This Ophthalmology and Surgical Center opened in 1987 as the first and only non-hospital out-patient surgery center in the region. It is still the first and only ASC in the area dedicated to the treatment of eyes. Over 1,000 surgeries are performed yearly in the surgical center with an untapped market potential to do well over 1,800. There is an experienced anesthesiologist on site. The surgical center offers convenient, high-quality surgical care at a fraction of the cost of a hospital. Since the nurses and technicians specialize only in Ophthalmology, this practice provides a higher level of support to deliver world-class results.

Excellent Italian influence with great restaurants, bars, supper clubs, boutique downtown stores and activities for all ages. "People who come here tend to stay here"

Additional Information:
  • Specialized: Well-trained nurses and technicians that specialize only in eye surgery allowing greater specialized expertise.
  • Intimate: Smaller friendly facility allows more intimate experience for the patient
  • Cost saving: While maintaining the highest standards of surgical excellence in an environment that specializes solely in eye surgery, the Cataract Surgical Center can significantly limit the risk of cross-contamination from other more infectious procedures commonly associated with hospital settings where a wide variety of procedures are performed. The cost savings of the “most often performed surgical procedure in the United States” can range from 30-50% of comparable hospital fees and charges. As important is the patient cost savings; if the patient is responsible for 20% of the fees as Medicare requires, patients at this practice can reduce their out of pocket expenses between 30 and 50%! Studies today suggest that Cataract and other eye surgeries performed in outpatient surgery centers have among the highest levels of excellence in the country. While the outpatient surgery center at this center is fully approved to perform any type of surgery in their two-room OR, they have limited cases exclusively to the eye. This decision allows the staff to reach a level of expertise and excellence in eye surgery that is second to none anywhere in the country. The facility is approved and monitored by both state and federal accrediting organizations and over the years we have maintained the highest of accreditations.
  • Dependable: Scheduled surgery times are not likely to be delayed or bumped by non-related emergencies, as they may be at hospitals
  • Efficient: Turn-around time between surgeries is as much as three times faster than at hospitals, which means less waiting for patients and families.
  • Comfortable: Patients and their families can relax in a pleasant environment, far from the emergency and trauma situations one may witness in a hospital.
  • Advanced: The Cataract Surgical Center offers the latest high-tech medical equipment and the most advanced surgical tools available today.
  • Family viewing: Family members are allowed to watch the actual surgery via closed-circuit TV if desired by the patient.
  • Confidential: The smaller, controlled setting lends itself toward greater confidentiality.
