In response to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and in support of our shared public health responsibilities, beginning March 14, 2020, our offices will remain open for emergencies only. All elective lasers and surgeries (including LASIK, Cataract Surgery, Cataract/Hydrus, and Corneal Transplants) are canceled through at least March 31, 2020. Exceptions include patients with uncontrolled glaucoma, trauma, sight-threatening conditions, and other eye emergencies.
To allay any concerns, we have implemented a HIPAA compliant telemedicine protocol accessible from any connected, camera-equipped device (phone or computer). Virtual visits can be scheduled by clicking here. There is no cost for these emergency online consultations.
Following this crisis, we will augment our surgical and clinic hours to expedite your ophthalmic surgical needs.
A questionnaire, a thermometer, and social distancing are insufficient weapons against COVID-19. Elective health care must be halted by both doctors and patients to quash this pandemic. The American Academy of Ophthalmology just announced (March 18, 2020, 8 PM) these same recommendations.
Practices that continue to see non-emergent eye patients are prolonging this crisis. Doing SLT's in the office, routine post-ops, and YAGs is going to cost lives.
James Lewis, MD has performed more than 50,000 successful cataract surgeries over the last 30 years. He was the first in the region to perform Dropless Cataract Surgery, the first to employ the Hydrus MicroStent, and the first to capture and utilize measured anterior and posterior corneal curvature in the calculation of intraocular lens powers. Our surgical practice is limited to cataract, MIGS (micro-invasive glaucoma surgery), refractive surgery (LASIK, EpiLASIK, PRK, Visian and Visian Toric ICL), and corneal surgery (DSEK, Cross Linking and Cross LinkingPlus). We emphasize individualized care, patient safety, professionalism, innovation, and advanced technology.
Our topography-guided excimer laser enhances surgical results, provides superior night driving vision, and improves contrast sensitivity. This technology regularizes the corneal geometry and can address conditions beyond the capabilities of traditional lasers.
