Best of 2020

Our highly-regarded Ophthalmologists (eye physicians and surgeons) offer the full spectrum of medical and surgical eye care for our patients.  Our physicians specialize in the management and treatment of eye diseases and disorders; they treat many medical conditions and perform cataract surgery, glaucoma management and surgery, Botox medical and cosmetic, and laser procedures. If you are in need of cosmetic upper or lower blepharoplasty (eyelid "lifts"), functional (also known as medically-necessary) upper blepharoplasty, endoscopic brow lifts (endo-brow lifts), tear duct repairs, repair of in-or out-turned eyelids, facial or eyelid reconstruction, we will be pleased to schedule you with Timothy A. Ekhlassi, M.D., M.P.H., our esteemed ASOPRS-certified oculoplastic surgeon.   We also provide routine eye exams for glasses prescriptions and contact lens prescription updates. Our professional staff strives to provide friendly and efficient service to all our patients. 

We are committed to providing the very best eye care possible in a compassionate manner, and we are following state and local health guidelines. This now includes the mandatory wearing of face masks or coverings when entering our office. Please be sure to bring a face covering with you! We also ask that only the patient come into the office, unless a caregiver is needed. Thank you for your cooperation as we continue to strive to provide the best care for you and your family, while keeping you and our staff safe!
