Eye Care Update
As spring turns to summer and South Louisiana becomes abuzz with activity, isn’t it time to make certain that you see everything? Seeing it all isn’t just about taking in the festivals and fun, it’s also about being proactive in the health of your eyes. According to the Foundation of the American Academy of Opthamology, many of the leading causes of blindness are preventable and having routine eye exams is the best way to preserve eyesight. New Orleans offers many qualified and competent providers of eyecare so that you can always keep your comprehensive health in perspective.
Under the guidance of their doctors’ leadership, Eyecare Associates is one of the fastest growing ocular practices in the country. Once again, their surgeons were named one of the Laser Vision Top 100 Surgeons in the United States. This achievement was bestowed upon them for their excellence in Refractive Surgery. Each of Eyecare Associates’ surgeons reached one of the highest individual case volumes in the country. Their vast experience combined with their knowledgeable insight allowed Eyecare Associates to also be named one of the Top Laser Vision Practices in the United States.
