With The Eye Surgery Center, Eye Center of St Augustine is proud to offer “total eye care under one roof.” We provide our patients with a level of convenience and comfort not found anywhere else, as we are the only Eye Center in the St. Augustine area with an outpatient surgery center on-site. Our friendly staff is dedicated to quality patient care and satisfaction.
We know you will find The Eye Surgery Center of St Augustine both more convenient and much less expensive than having your eye surgery in a hospital setting.
Procedures such as Cataract Surgery with Intraocular Lens Implantation, Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery, Laser Surgery, as well as other eye surgeries can be performed on an outpatient basis right here in our beautiful, state of the art Eye Surgery Center. The typical stay in our outpatient surgery center is between 1 and 3 hours.
The physicians and staff of The Eye Surgery Center have many years of experience in ophthalmic surgery and their goal is to make your surgical experience a positive one.
Cataract surgery is the removal of the cloudy lens of the eye and its replacement with an artificial lens called an intraocular lens (IOL). A cataract is a clouding of the lens of the eye, which is responsible for focusing light onto the retina. As you age, the proteins in the lens of your eye break down and clump together, causing the lens to become cloudy. This cloudiness can interfere with your vision, making it difficult to see clearly.
The physicians at the Eye Center of St. Augustine use laser surgery as a means to treat eye diseases such as diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears, or retinal vein occlusions, as well as a treatment for secondary cataract.
Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery
This procedure was created to treat eyelid conditions, the most common of which are ptosis (upper eyelid drooping) and dermatocholasis (excess eyelid skin), and can be performed on an outpatient basis here in the Eye Surgery Center of St. Augustine. These procedures not only enhance a patient’s cosmetic appearance, but also help restore visual function as well.
Dr. Todd Thompson, both Board Certified Ophthalmologists, have extensive training and experience in treating many eyelid conditions.
The Eye Center of St. Augustine is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). As an accredited organization, Eye Center of St. Augustine has passed a series nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care, as set by the AAAHC.
