Treatment of Eye Disease

With our years of experience in diagnosing and treating eye health disorders such as cataracts, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy, Dr. Robert Ratzlaff and his team are equipped to provide necessary therapeutic medical eye care.

If you are diagnosed with an eye disease, you want only the best treatment available to get your eyes healthy again. At RealEyes, that’s exactly what we offer -the best. Based on your diagnosis, we may recommend a wide variety of approaches, including prescription medicines, minor medical procedures, or referral to a specialist.

Contact Lens Services

Our comprehensive contact lens evaluation includes the prescription, corneal and tear film evaluation, and appropriate follow-ups. We prescribe the most advanced types of soft and gas-permeable contact lenses including specialty designs for dry eyes, changing eye color, astigmatism, presbyopia (bifocal and monovision), irregular corneas (post-corneal transplant, post-refractive surgery, keratoconus, scarred corneas), and prosthetic uses.

Laser Vision Correction Consultation and Co-Management

In today's world, laser surgery is a very safe, effective and popular method for obtaining vision correction. At RealEyes, we will discuss the best alternative for your particular prescription and needs and will be involved in your care from start to finish. Many people don't recognize the different types of laser refractive procedures available. From PRK to Lasik to Lasek, we will take the time to educate you and help you make the right decision.

Good Eyecare Begins With A Yearly Exam!

Although many don’t "realeyes" it, the best way to protect your vision is with a yearly eye health evaluation. An eye exam can instantly detect such health-threatening conditions as tumors, vascular irregularities and diabetes-related disease in the retina. At RealEyes, that complete exam is brief and painless.
