MacDougall Eye Center
New techniques in ophthalmic microsurgery allow many patients to see clearly for the very first time.
Vision-saving procedures performed at the MacDougall Eye Center include:
- Vitrectomy/scleral buckle
- Cataract extraction/refractive lensectomy
- Corneal transplants
- Trabeculectomy/Glaucoma implant
- Pterygium removal
- Strabismus surgery
At the MacDougall Eye Center, a microsurgical video camera system allows the entire surgical team to see exactly what the surgeon is seeing. This monitoring system allows the team to anticipate the surgeon's needs at every moment during the procedure. Such a video system also documents the surgery, providing invaluable information for managing the care of each patient.
