Eye Care (Ophthalmology)
Problems with your eyes can range from imperfect vision to serious medical disorders which, left untreated, can lead to blindness. We perform over 1,300 eye-related procedures a year. Our world-class Ophthalmologists offer a full range of eye care for all ages from prescribing new glasses, contact lenses, or LASIK to treatment of diseases of the eye such as cataracts, corneal disease, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, or macular degeneration.
The patient's care will be provided by a highly qualified nursing staff. Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center was re-designated the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Magnet status in 2009 due to our commitment to interdisciplinary practice, ongoing professional development, use of evidence-based practice in the delivery of nursing care and ongoing nursing research. We were the 37th hospital in the nation and first in Texas and the Southwest to receive the honor in 2001, and again in 2005. Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center has joined the elite one percent of hospitals in the nation to achieve this status three times.
Eye care spans from correcting imperfect vision to attending to serious medical disorders. Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center physicians and staff perform more than 1,300 eye-related procedures each year. Board-certified ophthalmologists offer a full range of eye care for all ages.
Our physicians help patients determine if eyeglasses, contact lenses, or LASIK surgery is the best option for correcting vision. They provide expertise in determining the best choice, with consideration given to monovision, bifocals, and irregular corneas, as in keratoconus, or after corneal grafting.
Specialists are experts at caring for eye disorders, including cataracts, corneal disease, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration.
