Our surgeons use the latest techniques of ultrasound (phacoemulsification) and eye drop anesthesia in the performance of sutureless cataract surgery. To assure your happiness with the refractive outcome of cataract surgery, we have the most advanced techniques to measure the eye for intraocular lens power- the optically based Zeiss IOL Master instrument and ultrasound instruments enhanced with immersion techniques for the avoidance of ocular distortion. This attention to detail helps assure your satisfaction with your refractive outcome, weather with conventional intraocular lenses or with the new premium lens implants including ReStor and Crystalens. LASIK is performed in our suite using the latest VISX STAR S4 excimer laser, with the added safety of an on-premises VISX certified laser engineer. We offer the latest wavefront technology as well as Iris Registration to provide custom LASIK. We provide a detailed Custom LASIK exam utilizing the newest diagnostic tools. We use the Pentacam to produce a three dimensional image of the cornea. We also perform a Wavescan to provide a one-of-a-kind map of your vision. This information is used to enhance your diagnosis and outcomes with Custom LASIK.
Valley EyeCare Center understands that the highest level of patient care requires a commitment to research. We have participated in several FDA sponsored studies in advanced diagnostic instrumentation, the results of which will be of direct benefit to our patients.

The ophthalmologists, optometrists, opticians, and staff at Valley EyeCare Center work closely together to diagnose, treat, and manage the health care of their patients’ eyes. They are pleased to have the “Three O’s” working closely together to deliver the highest quality medical eye care, and feel it is important that their patients understand what each of the “Three O’s” is qualified to do.
An ophthalmologist is a physician, Doctor of Medicine (MD) or Doctor of Osteopathy (DO), who specializes in the medical and surgical care of the eyes and visual system, and in the prevention of eye disease and injury. An ophthalmologist has completed four or more years of college premedical education, four or more years of medical school, one year of internship, and three or more years of specialized medical, surgical, and refractive training and experience in eye care. An ophthalmologist is a specialist who is qualified by lengthy medical education, training, and experience to diagnose, treat and manage all eye and visual systems, and is licensed by a state regulatory board to practice medicine and surgery. An ophthalmologist is a medically trained specialist who can deliver total eye care: primary, secondary, and tertiary (i.e., vision services, contact lenses, eye examinations, medical eye care, and surgical eye care), diagnose general diseases of the body, and treat ocular manifestations of systemic diseases.
An optometrist is a health service provider who is involved exclusively with vision problems. Optometrists are specifically educated and trained by an accredited optometry college in a four year course. They are state licensed to examine the eyes and to determine the presence of vision problems. Optometrists determine visual acuity and prescribe spectacles, contact lenses, and eye exercises. Optometrists may perform all services listed under the definition of an optician. Some states permit optometrists to give limited treatments of some eye conditions.
An optician is a technician who makes, verifies, and delivers lenses, frames, and other specially fabricated optical devices and/or contact lenses upon prescription to the intended wearer. The optician’s functions include prescription analysis and interpretation; determination of the lens forms best suited to the wearer’s needs; the preparations and delivery of work orders for the grinding of lenses and the fabrication of eyewear, the verification of the finished ophthalmic products; and the adjustment, replacement, repair, and reproductions of previously prepared ophthalmic lenses, frames, and other specially fabricated ophthalmic devices.
