Our hospital has always had a special interest in ophthalmology, and has hosted a board certified ophthalmologist monthly for many years until her relocation to Australia. We still perform a variety of ophthalmologic diagnostics and surgical procedures, but when necessary are able to refer more challenging cases to a board certified ophthalmologist.

Some of the services we provide include:

  • Schirmer tear testing
  • Fluorescein staining
  • Tonometry to measure intraocular pressure
  • Tear duct flushing
  • Contact lens placement for corneal ulcers
  • Surgical procedures including entropion correction, ‘cherry eye’ surgery, enucleation, eyelid tumor removal, debridement/grid keratotomy for ulcer treatment
