Blindness or low vision affects 3.3 million Americans age 40 and over, or one in 28 people, according to the National Eye Institute. By 2020, blindness could affect 5.5 million people. Having a problem affecting your vision can be worrisome, but receiving the best available care from a highly-qualified doctor specializing in ophthalmology can bring peace of mind.

The Polyclinic’s Ophthalmology Department provides total eye care. We treat patients of all ages who experience vision loss as well as many other conditions that affect the eyes and surrounding tissues including blurred vision, cataracts, diabetes-related eye problems, dry eye/red eye, eyelid disorders, glaucoma, macular degeneration and trauma. All of our ophthalmologists are board-certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and have numerous years of experience.
