Medical Eyecare

cataract_homeWe manage many common medical eye problems such as dry eyes, glaucoma, and macular degeneration. We stay up to date with the latest medications and other management options. We also have a network of sub-specialists who help manage specific problems that may require a more specialized approach.

We treat eye infections and injuries and will typically be able to see patients of an urgent nature often on the same day. We can evaluate new symptoms such as flashes of light and new floaters in our vision. We also monitor potential eye problems that can relate to systemic diseases such as Diabetes and High Blood Pressure. We partner with many primary care physicians to provide complete care for these conditions that can affect multiple areas of our bodies.

Eye Surgery

home_surgeryWe are first and foremost trained as eye physicians and surgeons. We therefore are able to perform many common eye surgeries such as cataract surgery with implants as well as LASIK to try and reduce the dependency on eyeglasses and contacts. We evaluate each person individually in order to determine if surgery is the right option for their particular condition.

We offer the latest implants and laser technology to give patients access to the many advances that have occurred in recent years.  Dr. Jamell performs the “no blade” LASIK procedure, and he is a happy LASIK patient himself. He also performs modern cataract surgery where patients can often achieve excellent visual improvement with very little recovery time.

Routine Eyecare

Routine eye care is very important to our general health. Depending on a patient’s age and other medical conditions, a regular eye exam should be performed about every one to two years or sooner if other problems are present. Often times, a regular eye exam may detect problems elsewhere in the body such as diabetes or high blood pressure. Consider asking your primary care provider if you should be screened for any conditions or medication issues.
