Eye surgery expertise

Ophthalmologists use advanced surgical approaches to improve vision and treat eye diseases, including minimally invasive and laser methods. They focus on procedures to treat macular degeneration, eye tumors and retinal and corneal disorders.

Conditions We Treat

Prevent tears from draining normally, which causes watery eyes.

Cancerous and noncancerous eye tumors

Include tumors such as basal cell carcinoma, melanoma, retinoblastoma and orbital lymphoma.


Cause the lens in your eye to get cloudy.

Cornea diseases and injury

Affect your eye’s clear, protective cover, and include keratoconus, corneal dystrophies, scratches and ulcers.

Dry eye

Happens when tears can’t provide enough moisture for your eyes.

Eye infections and swelling

Includes problems such as pink eye, sties, keratitis and  blepharitis.

Eye muscle problems

Include muscle spasms, lazy eye (amblyopia), or eyes that don’t point in the same direction (strabismus).

Eyelid problems

Focusing problems

Include conditions such as astigmatism, nearsightedness, farsightedness and presbyopia.

Retinal diseases

Affect your ability to see detail and include conditions such as diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, macular degeneration, retinal tears and detachments, holes and eye cancers.

Retinopathy of prematurity

Happens when abnormal blood vessels form in the retina of premature babies.

Treatments Provided

Diagnostics and imaging (eye care)

Eye problems don’t always have symptoms, but testing can find problems at the earliest stages to help prevent vision loss. Eye care specialists at PeaceHealth use advanced equipment to diagnose eye conditions, including optical coherence tomography (OCT), which takes 3D pictures of your retina to diagnose and plan treatment for retinal diseases.

Eye cancer care

Ophthalmologists at PeaceHealth work with cancer specialists to treat a wide range of eye cancers. Your care team will design a treatment plan based on your needs and give you personal support and guidance along the way.

Eye exams

An eye exam does more than just test your vision. It looks for changes from past eye exams that can signal eye diseases such as glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration or other problems. Eye exams let your doctor find problems early so they can be treated right away.

Eye surgery

Ophthalmologists at PeaceHealth are experts in a wide range of methods to treat eye disease, including:

  • Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) – A range of surgeries that treat droopy upper and lower eyelids.
  • Micro-invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) – Uses tiny equipment and incisions (cuts), which may offer a shorter recovery than traditional glaucoma surgery.
  • Minimally invasive cataracts surgery – Uses very small cuts to replace a cloudy lens with a new lens without stiches.
Medicine management (eye care)

Your doctor may prescribe medicine as part of your treatment. These may include:

  • Antibiotics – Treat infections
  • Antihistamines – Treat allergic reactions
  • Corticosteroids – Help prevent damage from certain eye conditions
  • BOTOX® injections – Treat eyelid twitching or spasms
  • Eye drops – Treat dry or irritated eyes, eye strain or diseases such as glaucoma
