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, topical anesthetic, no patch Cataract Surgery
Femtosecond laser surgery
The surgeon uses a very short wavelength laser to make the needed cataract surgery 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)
Cataract surgery Implant lenses designed to correct astigmatism, an eye defect that causes your brain to receive blurred images.
The Tecnis and Crystalens brand lenses we offer with cataract surgery 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.
Laser Floater Removal
Yag laser vitroelysis, or floater removal, has recently been shown to be significantly “”. Dr. Kilpatrick by the American Academy of Ophthalmology is one of the few surgeons in the state certified to perform the painless low-risk procedure. Note: The treatment is only available if cataract surgery has been previously performed.
SLT Glaucoma Laser
This quick and painless procedure reduces the pressure in about 80% of diabetic patients.
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.
