Scottsdale Eye Physicians & Surgeons specializes in surgical vision correction using advanced procedures and equipment.
If you have impaired vision, it’s highly likely we can correct the problem on an outpatient basis under local or topical anesthesia.
No-Stitch Cataract Surgery (includes Femtosecond Laser, OptiPlusTM ORA intraoperative testing, Toric implant lens, and Multifocal implant lens)
Femtosecond laser surgery
The surgeon uses a very short wavelength laser to make the needed incisions. This technique is safer, more precise, and shortens the surgery time. Dr. Dennis is one of the few ophthalmologists certified for femtosecond laser surgery.
OptiPlusTM ORA intraoperative testing
Allows instant assessments and precise corrections of the implant lens power and alignment during cataract surgery.
Astigmatism correcting intraocular lenses (also known as toric lenses)
Implants designed to correct astigmatism, an eye defect that causes your brain to receive blurred images.
The Tecnis and Crystalens brand lenses we use greatly increase the possibility that you could do with reduced need for distance or reading glasses.
Glaucoma Treatment During Cataract Surgery
Endocyclophotocoagulation (ECP) glaucoma laser treatment during cataract surgery is also offered. This technique provides up to an 80% possibility of lowering eye pressure and/or reducing glaucoma medications post-surgery.
YAG laser capsulotomy
We recommend this surgery to treat cloudiness behind the implant lens that frequently can occur after a primary cataract procedure.
Laser iridotomy relieves or prevents increased pressure within the eye from acute angle-closure glaucoma.
Retinal laser treatment can be performed to correct small retinal tears. Larger retinal detachments, macular degeneration, and other retinal conditions are referred to retinal specialists for treatment.
Minor ocular surgeries (corneal foreign body, eyelid chalazion, skin tags, cysts) The most common conjunctival and corneal injuries are foreign bodies and abrasions. If left untreated, these problems could cause serious eye infections. Blocked eyelid glands (chalazion) and other lesions are removed in the office under local anesthetic.
