The Center for Eye Care and Surgery is a state-of-the-art facility providing total eye care for the entire family. The highly trained staff takes a team approach to all of your eye care needs. “We provide medical and surgical treatment of the eye, advanced cataract surgery, excimer laser vision correction – and we can treat glaucoma, diabetic eye disease and all aspects of general ophthalmology,” said Dr. Silviano Matamoros, M.D. “We also have a full optical dispensary of all the needs of the family.”
From your child’s first eye exam to treatment for injury or disease, Center for Eye Care and Surgery is equipped with up-to-date, advanced technology equipment. This allows them to diagnose and treat eye conditions relatively easily and to provide total eye care. Matamoros and Ron McCord, M.D., are board certified and backed by a professional and caring staff. “Today, eye surgery is a quick, comfortable and safe procedure with quick recovery times,” he said. “It allows patients to resume normal activities very quickly.”Whether cataract, refractive laser correction to reduce dependency on glasses or contact lenses (PRK, Lasek or Lasik), these modern surgeries are done with a topical anesthetic with no stitches. These procedures are done on an outpatient basis.
“Refractive surgery is safe and very popular for improving vision,” said Matamoros. He provides a free consultation to see if surgery will improve your vision. No pressure! You decide if refractive surgery is right for you. Lasek was definitely the right choise for Mike Matthy. “I’m a fire fighter and contacts and glasses get in the way of my work,” he said. Co-workers referred him to Matamoros. “I had a fast recovery time. Now, I have no need for glasses. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done.” Now, Matthy refers others to Center for Eye Care and Surgery. Everyone he has referred has also had great results. If you want to explore refractive laser surgery and see if it’s right for you, call for a free, no obligation, no pressure consultation from an experienced surgeon you can trust. Cataract patients can also discuss with Matamoros the new Array Multifocal intraocular implant. This new implant will minimize the need to wear glasses after cataract surgery. Patients return to normal activities relatively soon after cataract surgery.
