Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lusk "Our goal is to give the patient the best surgical/ medical care. In eye care, preoperative measurements and surgical precision are critical to an ideal result. I am a high volume cataract surgeon with over 1400 cataracts per year and another 1000 surgical procedures including LASIK. I personally measure each patient. Studies in ophthalmology confirm that high volume leads to better outcomes. Our experienced team of 27 employees delivers outstanding results."
