Below are some common fields that our doctors specialize in:
Laser Vision Correction
LASIK is eye surgery that permanently changes the shape of the cornea (the clear covering on the front of the eye) in order to improve vision and reduce a person’s dependency on glasses or contact lenses. With advances in lasers and surgical procedures there are now many options available to correct vision problems. LASIK, Custom LASIK, IntraLase, and PRK are just a few of the choices you have. It is important to find the procedure that is best for your specific eye situation. Learn more about LASIK and vision correction procedures.
A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye that typically will affect your vision. Most cataracts are related to aging. People who have cataracts often have other vision problems in one or both eyes that accompany the cataract, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and/or presbyopia. With cataract surgery, your eye’s cloudy natural lens is removed and replaced with a clear artificial lens implant called an intraocular lens, or IOL. Cataract surgery is a common procedure that involves removing the clouded lens of the eye (the cataract). The lens camera.gif makes it possible for the eye to focus. The lens can be replaced with an artificial lens called an intraocular lens implant (IOL). Sometimes an IOL is not used, and eyeglasses or contact lenses can compensate for the lens that is removed.

If the cornea of your eye becomes damaged through disease, infection, or injury, the resulting scars can interfere with vision by blocking or distorting light as it enters the eye. The term “corneal disease” refers to a variety of conditions that affect mainly the cornea. These include infections, degenerations, and many other disorders of the cornea that may arise mostly as a result of heredity. Boston Eye Group treats all areas of the cornea including, abrasions, DSEK/DMEK/PKP, Keratoconus, and Pterygium. Learn more about corneal disease and treatment options.
The retina is a thin layer of tissue on the inside back wall of your eye, containing millions of light-sensitive cells and other nerve cells that receive and organize visual information. Your retina sends this information to the brain through your optic nerve, enabling you to see. Retinal diseases can be associated with diabetes, trauma to the eye, or family history. People with retinal diseases experience an array of symptoms, from specks floating in their vision to blurred or lost vision. Diseases of the retina include retinal detachment, macular degeneration, vitreous floaters and diabetic retinopathy. Learn more about retinal conditions and treatment options.
