Ophthalmology

Any vision problem can be unsettling. For serious problems, diseases or concerns, it’s best to talk to an INTEGRIS ophthalmologist.

Much more than vision.

The Eye Experts

Eyes are more than windows to the soul. They allow us to view, navigate and connect with the world around us and help us perform almost every activity we perform in daily life. Your eyes are a crucial part of your overall health and wellness and the eye experts at INTEGRIS offer a full range of services. From routine eye exams to cataract surgery, our board-certified ophthalmologists provide comprehensive and cutting-edge preventive, diagnostic, and therapeutic services for you and your entire family.

From dry eyes and corrective lenses to cataracts, glaucoma and eye cancers, the specialists at INTEGRIS are dedicated to your eye health. Many eye conditions are also related to other medical conditions such as diabetes, auto-immune disorders or thyroid disease, and our ophthalmologists utilize a multidisciplinary approach, collaborating with other specialists to provide exactly the care you need based on what's right for you.

Ophthalmology vs. Optometry

It’s important to understand the difference between an optometrist and an ophthalmologist. While an optometrist or optician can help correct your vision, an ophthalmologist can do much more. INTEGRIS ophthalmologists are medical doctors who specialize in eye and vision care, with at least eight years of additional medical training and the ability to not only to correct vision problems, but diagnose and treat all eye diseases. They can also prescribe medicine and perform eye surgeries.

Any vision problem can be unsettling. Although an optometrist can likely help with basic vision correction, for serious problems, diseases or concerns, it’s best to talk to an INTEGRIS ophthalmologist.
