Dr. Pendleton's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Pendleton "At Pendleton Eye Center, our doctors, Dr. Robert Pendleton, and Dr. Victor Wechter stay current on the latest technology and procedures in ophthalmology. We utilize the Zeiss diode laser to treat glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration. Using the Visioffice System, we can create the most individualized, digital lenses possible for each patient. To educate our patients about specific conditions and procedures we use EyeMaginations software. At Pendleton Eye Center, our commitment to excellence shows! We appreciate your interest in our practice, and look forward to helping you achieve and maintain optimum vision Dr. Pendleton received his medical degree and PHD from the University of Illinois, and completed his ophthalmology residency at Northwestern University. Dr. Pendleton is now performing laser-assisted cataract surgery using the LensAR femtosecond-laser. Femtosecond laser is the latest technology in cataract surgery; it creates incisions with increased precision, reduces the amount of ultrasound energy needed for cataract removal, and it can reduce or eliminate small amounts of astigmatism. Dr. Pendleton specializes in No Stitch, No Patch, No Injection Cataract Surgery andRefractive Lens Exchange Surgery, and if you are a candidate for the latest multifocal, toric, or accommodative lens implants, you just might find that you have little or no need for glasses after surgery."
