About Our Practice
Our vision is a wonderful gift. Unfortunately, sooner or later most of us will experience some kind of vision deterioration. The good news is that medical science has made tremendous advancements in treating these problems, which sometimes require nothing more than a pair of glasses or contact lenses. Some of us, however, develop conditions that may need to be addressed through a surgical intervention.
Each of us has different needs and goals. Each Carolina Cataract & Laser Center patient receives an in-depth evaluation to determine his or her specific needs. Through special tests, our surgeons are able to discover which exact conditions you have and the degree of your visual degeneration so that together we can develop the best approach to treat them.
Our highly-skilled cataract surgeons, David T. Vroman, MD, Millin C. Budev, MD, Kristiana D. Neff, M.D. and Michelle S. Ying, M.D., M.S.P.H. evaluate and recommend the most comprehensive and effective treatment options for cataract patients including monitoring techniques or surgical recommendations. Glaucoma patients continue to receive the most innovative treatment options available for the diagnosis and management of their Glaucoma needs and Corneal patients trust the nationally-recognized expertise of one of the region's top corneal transplantation surgeons.
Carolina Cataract & Laser Center welcomed patients to its new, state-of-the art facility in the Spring of 2008 and is conveniently located off of exit 203 (College Park Road) on I26.
