Treatment for

Those who suffer from nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism or presbyopia know the frustration of having to constantly deal with glasses, bifocals or contact lenses.

They each have their inconveniences, daily routines, and are easily misplaced or lost. Many people want to reduce their dependency on glasses or contacts and are interested in laser vision correction. There are a few different procedures, each to resolve specific vision problems, with LASIK being the most common. Each form of laser vision surgery is quick and relatively painless. Each eye procedure typically requires just 15 minutes, and people can return to their daily routines very soon after surgery. That means you can drastically improve your sight, and in some cases eliminate the need for glasses or contacts, with a surgery that involves minimal downtime.


Development of cataracts is a common and unfortunate sign of aging. It begins by a clouding of the lens of the eye due to clumping of the proteins of the lens. The condition is irreversible and can worsen with time, progressing to blindness if not treated. Cataract vision problems cannot be resolved with glasses or contacts and require surgery to reverse the condition. The procedure involves replacing the clouded natural lens with a clear artificial lens. Because the lens is artificial, the condition cannot return. Dr. Waring is highly regarded for his attention to detail and for developing surgical advances in lens replacement surgery.

Glaucoma Treatment

Glaucoma is an increase in intraocular pressure, caused by a blockage of the eye’s natural draining mechanism. The condition progresses slowly, and sometimes clients don’t know they have the condition until they have an acute attack, which is when the eye pressure increases dramatically. If not treated immediately, this type of attack may lead to permanent blindness. There are a few different types of surgery that can be performed to modify the eye’s natural drain or reduce fluid production in the eye. Regular eye exams are key to identifying early symptoms of glaucoma and ensuring you get the necessary care.
