PROCEDURES

The following procedures are performed by this doctor.

Dry eye/tear solutions

Tears lubricate and protect your eyes and help maintain clear vision. When too few or poor quality tears are produced, dry eye occurs, causing a gritty, uncomfortable feeling, with blurriness and a feeling of something lodged in the eye.

Removal of cyst/pimple on or in eyelid

Cysts, pimples, or sties are caused by bacteria that get into the oil glands in the eyelids.

Removal of growth on conjunctiva

These growths are thought to be caused by UV light exposure, such as sunlight. The growth typically occurs from the nasal side of the sclera, or the white part of your eye.
