      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Lavery's Care Philosophy

      Vision is clearly one of the most precious senses. It is such a joy maintaining and restoring sight, especially in patients who have been told elsewhere, Nothing can be done. Throughout my career, I have been given the great honor and responsibility of treating many patients with only one sighted eye, as well as performing surgery on dozens of doctors and colleagues who have chosen me to correct, enhance or restore their vision. My goal is to treat every patient as an individual and help them to maximize their visual potential to meet those needs.You have entrusted us with your sight and we are committed to providing you with the ultimate in quality care. I am blessed with the skill and expertise to treat the most challenging of cases. I also strive to have the humility to understand that I do not have all of the answers, and will seek consultation when necessary.
