Ophthalmologists Dr. David I. Malitz, Dr. M. Alijajeh, and Dr. C. Mark Millsap team up with Doctor of Optometry Zach Rossman to clarify vision with Ohio Valley Eye Institute's range of cutting-edge eye-care services. Basic eye exams for children and adults test whether eyes need corrective lenses or LASIK. During cataract surgery, high-energy sound waves obliterate the cloudy intrusion into microscopic particles, and an intraocular lens usually eschews the need for stitches. The staff also brightens eye surroundings with cosmetic procedures such as blepharoplasty, which lifts drooping upper eyelids and tightens sagging lower lids, as well as Botox and laser resurfacing treatments. The ophthalmologists especially pride themselves on their surgical skills, having completely eliminated the need for glasses in many patients who have been told they weren't candidates for corrective procedures in the past.
The doctors sit down with each patient to review their selected procedure step by step in order to alleviate anxiety. Supportive friends or family members who stand by can amuse themselves by turning on the television or perusing a selection of magazines in the waiting area, or by peeking into their loved one's treatment room through a window to watch the surgical action.
