Columbia Eye Clinic’s team of board certified and fellowship trained doctors use state-of-the-art equipment and technology to quickly and accurately diagnose and treat any eye condition. With a variety of subspecialists in the practice, all your eye care needs can be taken care of under one roof by their experienced doctors.

Comprehensive Eye Exams The doctors at Columbia Eye Clinic offer complete eye exams to evaluate the overall health of your eyes as well as vision testing and contact lens exams. Routine comprehensive eye exams help to detect and prevent sight-threatening eye problems.

Refractive Surgery Refractive surgery offers many fantastic options to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia — age- related inability to focus at near distances requiring the use of reading glasses. LASIK and PRK are procedures using a laser to reshape the cornea — the clear, round dome at the front of the eye — to improve the way the eye focuses light. Refractive Lens Exchange replaces your eye’s natural lens with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL). There are many advanced technology intraocular lenses to choose from to meet your vision needs. Patients can also choose from the same IOL options as part of cataract surgery. An intraocular collamer lens (ICL) is like an implantable contact lens and offers another option for patients with extreme nearsightedness and does not require removal of the eye’s natural lens. Your ophthalmologist will determine which option is best to help you reduce or eliminate your dependence on glasses or contacts.

Cataract Surgery Cataracts are part of the natural aging process, and most people have some clouding of their lenses by age 60. Laser cataract surgery can offer a host of benefits over traditional procedures and help you experience the best possible long-term vision. During cataract surgery, your clouded natural lens is removed and replaced with a lens implant. There are many replacement lens options available to help reduce dependency on glasses and accommodate your vision needs.
