Surgical Procedures

Northland Eye Surgery Center

Your eye surgeon’s surgical skill directly impacts the procedure’s success – the better your surgeon is, the better your results will be. That is why it is so important to choose a board certified ophthalmologist with decades of surgical experience and a track record of success.

Surgical procedures are performed at our Northland Eye Surgery Center in Liberty. Our Center has earned the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care’s (AAAHC) Certificate of Accreditation. It symbolizes our commitment to quality and the highest standards of care.

As a comprehensive eye care practice, Northland Eye Specialists performs a variety of surgical procedures such as cataract surgery, eyelid surgery and intraocular lens implants. Dr. Hembree, Dr. Carney and Dr. Blacklock are all board certified eye surgeons with specific areas of expertise. As a Northland Eye Specialists patient, you have access to the most skilled experts in the Northland for your eye surgery.

Though many surgical procedures are routine by today’s standards, we understand they are not routine for you. Dr. Hembree, Dr. Carney, Dr. Blacklock and the Surgery Center staff will answer your questions, follow up with compassion and do what’s necessary to make sure you’re comfortable before and after surgery.

Cataract Surgery

The bad news? There isn’t an exercise or moisturizer on the planet that counteracts the effects of aging on the lenses of our eyes. The good news? Cataract surgery is a very common, safe and effective surgery. As the lens ages, it develops opaque spots that impair vision. Fifty percent of people between 65 and 75 have cataracts so we perform a lot of cataract surgeries. Cataract surgery is painless and performed outpatient in our surgery center. You could notice a dramatic improvement in just hours, and be back to your normal routine within a few days.

Intraocular Lens Implants

Intraocular lens implants are an exciting alternative for people who are nearsighted, farsighted or have a moderate to high degree of astigmatism, but not LASIK candidates. The lenses are similar to contact lenses, only they are surgically implanted inside the eye rather than worn on the surface. Intraocular lens implants replace cloudy lenses to correct or restore vision for cataract patients. Intraocular lens implant surgery requires meticulous measurements, skilled hands and a history of working with specialty implants like toric and multifocal to standard lenses.

Refractive Lens Exchange Surgery

Certain prescriptions or eye conditions like thin corneas can cross you off the LASIK list. Luckily that doesn’t mean you’re stuck with glasses or contacts forever. Much like cataract surgery, our eye surgeons replace your lens with an artificial one during refractive lens exchange (RLE). The new lens is customized specifically to you and precisely corrects near or farsighted vision and astigmatism. You can kiss your glasses and contacts goodbye.
