Columbia Eye Clinic also has full-service Optical Departments at each location, so prescriptions for glasses or contacts can be filled conveniently using the latest in lens technology by our licensed opticians.
What are the latest developments/innovations in your field?
Columbia Eye Clinic was the first to bring the unparalleled precision and accuracy of the Alcon LenSx femtosecond surgical laser to Columbia. Our surgeons have conducted more than 5,000 cataract and premium lens procedures using the LenSx since 2013.
LenSx technology allows the surgeon to perform certain key steps within cataract surgery with a laser rather than a blade. Additionally, the laser provides an extremely detailed image of the eye. Since each eye is different with regard to the thickness, curvature and depth of its structures, the surgeon can use this information to plan your surgery much more precisely. The laser procedure causes less inflammation to the eye, so patients heal more quickly and experience improved visual acuity more quickly than with traditional cataract surgery.
How has the Columbia community benefitted from your business?
In practice for more than 90 years, our physicians and staff have helped Columbia see clearly for generations. Always abreast of advances in Ophthalmic technology, patients can be assured that the physicians at Columbia Eye Clinic will be here to provide a continuum of care throughout their lifetime.
