National Eye Institute’s Simple Tips for Healthy Eyes

Performing corrective laser vision eye surgery to give patients a life without glasses is only possible when they first have healthy eyes to begin with.

It’s easy for a practice like ours to say this, but eye health is essential to overall wellness. Even if you wear glasses or contacts and don’t want procedures like LASIK, KAMRA inlay, or refractive lens exchange, be sure to do everything you can to care for your eyes and vision.

Katzen Eye Group offers comprehensive annual eye exams (which are much more extensive than simple vision acuity tests). Contact us if you’d like to know more about the health of your eyes… and how your eyes can give insight into your overall health and even predict early disease states.
