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 perform cataract surgery combined with MIGS (micro-invasive glaucoma surgery) using the Hydrus MicroStent, and the first to use measured anterior and posterior corneal curvature to calculate intraocular lens powers. Our surgical practice is limited to cataract (including MIGS), refractive (LASIK), and corneal surgery (DSEK). We emphasize individualized care, patient safety, professionalism, innovation, and advanced technology.
Dr. Lewis is a recognized expert on Staar Surgical's nanoFLEX collamer intraocular lens.
