  • I am a board certified ophthalmologist specializing in cataract and refractive surgery. I also perform routine eye exams and manage various ophthalmic conditions including glaucoma and macular degeneration. I offer the best technology for LASIK including the Allegretto Laser. I have a multitude of the latest diagnostic instruments including corneal, retinal, and optic nerve laser imaging devices. Laser Biometry is employed for cataract lens replacement measurements. The Acrysoft Toric, Restor and Crystalens are the premium lens options offered. Liva Eye Center recently moved to a new location to better manage all the new technologies offered and to incorporate an optical shop with a lab on on premises.
