Ophthalmic Surgeons and Physicians in the Arizona Area
Our team of eye surgeons, specialists and technicians offer a wide range of consultations and ophthalmic services to Arizona area residents. We specialize in correcting cornea and anterior segment eye conditions.
- Corneal transplants
- Dry eye treatments
- Cataract surgery
- Investigative trials
Each of the doctors and technicians have successfully completed a minimum of 13 years of training, including medical school, internships and ophthalmology residency. They have also completed various additional trainings such as year-length fellowships in refractive surgery, cornea treatments and external disease.
Our team specializes in eye conditions such as ocular trauma, keratoconus, and severe ocular infections. We also help with ocular malignancies, inflammatory disease, and refractive surgery.
At our clinic, you can find technologically advanced surgeries such as LASIK, INTACS and other surgical procedures that help us solve astigmatism, nearsightedness, and farsightedness. These procedures help reduce your dependency on glasses and contact lenses.
When the clear outer covering of your eye has been scraped, scratched, or damaged, it may be in need of replacement. Cornea transplants provide a new and healthy cornea extracted from a donor.
Depending on the situation, you may be in need of partial or complete replacement of the cornea. Either way, the surgery is an outpatient procedure performed by a board certified cornea specialist.
A successful cornea transplant helps:
- Improve vision
- Reduce eye pain
- Correct inflammation
- Increase the comfort and look of the eyes
In certain instances, such as corneal damage due to congentital disorders or chemical burns, some patients are not good candidates for regular cornea transplant. For them, we can perform keratoprosthesis, or an artificial cornea transplant.
Dr. Gross, the medical director of the Donor Network of Arizona Eye Bank, is highly particular about the quality of the incoming cornea during transplant. He makes sure to minimize risk of the donated cornea with the donor tissue.
Correct Dry Eyes
Tears keep your eyes lubricated and reduce the chance of an eye infection. When you have dry eyes, the tears in your eye are insufficient to nourish or lubricate your eye. In such a case, you need to consult an expert to get your eyes looked into.
The causes of dry eyes include:
- Insufficient amount of water layer (KCS)
- Medications (rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes)
- Environmental conditions (dust, smoke)
Our expert uses a Schirmer test to determine the magnitude of the condition. We are capable of handling even chronic conditions. We also recommend Physician Recommended Nutricueticals (PRN).
Dealing with issues of the eye requires meticulous care backed by years of expertise. Our team of experts ensures maximum safety.
