Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Belen "Glaucoma can be a silent disease early on, with no noticeable symptoms. Unfortunately, left untreated, patients can lose vision. I use state of the art technology and techniques to help patients achieve their vision goals and help manage their glaucoma. I look at each patient as a unique opportunity to improve their quality of life through their vision."
