We are a full service ophthalmology practice in Eugene, Oregon, specializing in cataract and refractive surgery including iLASIK, PRK, ICL and Refractive Lens Exchange. Our physicians are subspecialty fellowship-trained in glaucoma and cornea and external diseases, and offer participation in clinical research studies.
Our physicians diagnose and treat nearly all eye conditions including cataracts, corneal diseases, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, double vision, strabismus and amblyopia, eyelid diseases, dry eye, nearsightedness and farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia.
We also offer comprehensive eye exams, glasses and contact lenses.
A cataract occurs when the protein in your natural lens starts clumping together, creating opacity or cloudiness in the lens, which may prevent a clear image from forming on the retina. Surgical removal of the lens may be necessary if visual loss becomes significant. Cataracts may be congenital (present at birth) or caused by trauma, disease or age.
The cornea is the clear, dome-shaped, front surface of our eye. Incredibly, it is composed of five layers of tissue. The cornea’s key role is to control and focus light entering into the eye. It also protects the eye from dirt, germs, ultraviolet light, and other matter.
If anything interferes with the cornea’s clarity or smoothness, light passing through it will become distorted, causing a hazy image and blurred eyesight.
Glaucoma is a term used to describe a group of diseases in which the pressure within the eye is increased, resulting in damage to the optic nerve. Glaucoma is a potentially blinding disease. It can be controlled with medication, but it cannot be cured.
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of poor vision in people over age 60. When the macula is damaged, central vision is interfered with, so that when you look at an object straight on, part of it may seem distorted, blotted out, or shrouded in a dark haze.
For millions of people, corrective eye surgery has dramatically changed the way they see the world. Driving, swimming, hiking, and even simply waking up in the morning becomes clearer – without glasses or contact lenses.

Prior to prescribing contact lenses, our physicians require an annual exam to review lens options and recommend the best lens for your eye health and visual needs. We offer spherical, astigmatic, multi-focal, and monovision lenses in scleral, hybrid, rigid gas permeable, soft, and custom soft lens materials.
