Listing of conditions and treatments for Eye Care

The Newest Procedures for the Eye

Our advanced technologies include lasers, instruments and surgical techniques. We can:

  • Perform high-risk corneal transplants

  • Conduct eye surgery to repair your vision

  • Treat your cataracts with lens implants

  • Use specialized computers to assess the quality of your cornea's surface

  • Measure your peripheral vision to diagnose glaucoma early

  • Examine the shape of the optic nerve in the back of your eye with special imaging technology

Save the Eye, Treat the Tumor

We have two options for treating eye tumors (choroidal melanomas): Gamma knife therapy, in conjunction with our Radiation Oncology and Neurosurgery departments; and radioactive plaque treatment, an innovative procedure that uses radiation on your eye.

Get the Right Fit

We can fit your eye for soft contact lenses to address simple vision disorders or provide rigid gas permeable lenses to deal with complex cornea disorders (including those who've had a previous cornea transplant). We have a wide selection of lenses to meet your needs.

Care for Glaucoma

We routinely use up-to-date therapies to treat all stages of glaucoma. These therapies include lasers, cataract surgery, specialized implants and filtering surgery (where excess fluid is filtered out of the eye, lowering pressure levels within the eye).

Aid for Low Vision

Do you need rehabilitation services or other help with your low vision or eye condition? We offer services and visual aids from magnifiers to sophisticated technologies through our close work with the Virginia Department for the Blind and Vision Impaired.
