Ophthalmology

Ophthalmology has serviced our community for six years since our grand opening on May 3, 2000.  We continue to provide care for all patients with medical diseases such as glaucomas, cataracts, diabetes, and hypertensive retinopathy, pterygiums, chalazions, traumas, and blind persons.  Special care is also given to school children with visual problems.
