Personalized Care and the Surgical Techniques that are Right for you
With continued improvements in technique and equipment, today’s surgical options can be confusing. Depending on your eye anatomy, lifestyle, and needs, certain procedures may be more suitable for helping to achieve better vision without glasses or contacts or to correct eye disease. At Virginia Beach Eye Center, you will receive personal attention and a complete vision analysis to determine which surgical procedure is right for you. You can relax, knowing that you are in the hands of highly experienced surgeons employing the very latest techniques. Our on-site surgical facility was designed with your comfort, convenience and safety in mind and houses some of the finest surgical equipment in the ophthalmic world, all to insure that your surgical results and experience are world class.
The eye surgeons at Virginia Beach Eye Center have the experience, expertise and training to provide excellence in the surgical needs of our patients. We are constantly updating our techniques and equipment to provide state-of-the art procedures and reviewing our past results to optimize outcomes. We always try to balance our enthusiasm for brand new procedures and make sure they will stand the test of time before offering these techniques to our patients. There have been many new procedures which have come onto the scene with great fanfare, only to be found lacking in stability, quality or reproducibility. Many of these techniques have been abandoned and surgical equipment companies have gone out of business. We feel very strongly that one of our responsibilities is to sort through the myriad of surgical offerings for our patients and only offer those that have the best chance of a great outcome.
