Areas of Our Practice


Considering Laser Vision Correction? Fellowship trained and board certified cornea-refractive surgeon, Dwight A. Silvera, MD, provides state of the art Intralase and Wavefront technology to deliver outstanding vision results.

Diabetic Retinopathy

People with diabetes are more likely to develop eye problems such as cataracts and glaucoma, but diabetic retinopathy is the main threat to vision.

Macular Degeneration

Age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) is a degenerative condition of the macula (the central retina). It is the most common cause of vision loss in the United States in those 50 or older, and its prevalence increases with age.

Retinal Detachment

An emergency when part of the eye (the retina) pulls away from supportive tissue.


Keratoconus is a degenerative disease of the cornea that causes it to gradually thin and bulge into a cone-like shape. This shape prevents light from focusing precisely on the macula.


A disease that damages your eye’s optic nerve usually when fluid builds up in the front part of your eye.
