Eye Surgery

Our board-certified ophthalmologist uses the latest technology to perform eye surgery at Rutland Regional Medical Center. We performed over 330 surgeries last year, including:

  • Cataract surgery. A cataract is a clouding of the normally clear lens of your eye. In cataract surgery, the lens is removed and replaced with an artificial lens called an intraocular lens transplant (IOL). This is a very common and safe procedure and is performed by our ophthalmologist on an outpatient basis.
  • Glaucoma surgery. Glaucoma results from damage to the optic nerve, usually as a result of increased pressure in the eye. Glaucoma can be treated with laser surgery, which uses a very focused beam of light to treat the drainage angle of the eye. The surgery decreases pressure by making it easier for fluid to flow out of the front part of the eye. This procedure is performed by our ophthalmologist on an outpatient basis.
