Our Eye Care Services
We treat a wide range of eye and vision problems. From chronic conditions to singular events, if you’re struggling with an eye-related concern, it’s likely that we can help you. Here are some of our most common services:
One of our board-certified ophthalmologists corrects cataracts, a common condition that occurs naturally with age and causes blurred or cloudy vision. Most patients recover quickly, and 90% of cataract surgeries result in perfect vision.
One of our corneal specialists, led by Dr. Christopher S. Jordan or Dr. Thomas S. Boland, examines the cornea and treats any abrasions or infections. Treatments might include prescription antibiotics to corneal transplants, and our experts can design a solution that meets your unique needs.
Our retinal specialists, led by Dr. Randall R. Peairs, use laser technology, radiation, and other state-of-the-art treatments to ease discomfort caused by retinal issues. Common retinal conditions include retinal tearing or detachment, retinal bleeding, or diabetic retinopathy.
Individuals who experience unexplained headaches, nausea, eye pain, and colorful circles when you look at lights might be suffering from the onset of glaucoma. Our knowledgeable glaucoma specialists perform examinations to find glaucoma in its early stages and treat it before complications arise.
Our experienced doctors perform both cosmetic and medical eyelid and eyebrow surgeries to protect and lift the skin around your eyes. Surgeries can include reconstructive treatment after an injury, BOTOX injections, and facial lifts near the eyelid or brow bone.
Pediatric Eye Care
We provide specialized eye care to young patients to identify and manage vision and eye conditions as early as possible. Our specialists perform comprehensive exams and treat abnormalities like infections, allergies, lazy eyes, inflammation, nearsightedness, or farsightedness.
Low Vision Service
Patients who are partially blind, visually impaired, sensitive to light, or colorblind might need unique solutions. Our experienced doctors who specialize in low vision help design plans and choose tools that patients can use to manage their condition.
Binocular Vision Therapy
When patients’ eyes fail to align with one another, they might be suffering from a binocular vision disorder that can interrupt their life. We offer customized therapy programs with our experts to help train patients’ eyes to work together for more clear, complete vision.
The above list isn’t exhaustive, and we treat an array of eye injuries and conditions. We work with patients experiencing ocular hypertension, dry eyes, allergies, tearing, styes, and herpes simplex, and we also offer commonplace optical maintenance services, like general exams and safety practices.

Eye Surgical Center
Our state-of-the-art Ambulatory Surgical Center is Scranton’s first official outpatient facility that focuses exclusively on eye surgery. The Ambulatory Surgical Center is located at our main office at 204 Mifflin Avenue in Scranton, Pennsylvania. After passing a comprehensive review process, the center gained accreditation from the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, affirming the center’s ability to provide top-notch care.
With operating rooms and the latest optical technology, we perform operations like glaucoma surgery, cataract treatments, retinal surgery, and eyelid and eyebrow lifts at the Ambulatory Surgical Center. While we aim to send patients home the same day as their service when possible, all operations are unique, and we provide comprehensive post-operative care to all who need it. Technology at the center includes phaco-emulsification equipment, a modern method of cataracts treatment, as well as a variety of laser tools for vision correction, glaucoma treatment, and retinal care.
To help you feel comfortable on your service day, you’ll have access to a team of patient and experienced nurses and surgical assistants, recovery rooms to rest afterward, a nearby parking lot, and waiting areas where families are welcome. Our team aims to answer your questions and meet your needs so you can have the easiest surgery and recovery possible.
