Using the latest no-stitch techniques your cataract is removed through a tiny incision and replaced with an artificial lens implant.  We offer the latest in presbyopia correcting implants utilizing the Restor / Symfony Multifocal intraocular lens.  We also offer elimination or reduction of astigmatism with the Toric intraocular lens.  Our surgeons also offer cataract surgery using the Catalys femtosecond laser system which allows for more precise and safer surgery.  Surgery is performed on an outpatient basis and with either topical or local anesthesia.

Corneal Transplantation

The cornea is like the windshield of the eye.  Sometimes the clear tissue gets cloudy and needs to be changed.  With modern surgical techniques, corneal transplantation may be successful in over 90 % of patients.  A donor cornea is used to replace your diseased cornea.  The surgery is done on an outpatient basis and is often performed with local anesthesia.  We are currently offering the latest in posterior corneal transplantation procedures, known as DSEK (descemet's membrane stripping endothelial keratoplasty).  Ask your doctor if you may be a candidate.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness throughout the world.  The doctors at Advanced Ophthalmology of Michiana can help manage this potentially debillitating disease.  We offer the latest in medical and laser management of glaucoma.

Pediatric Diseases

Pediatric eye care ranges from prescription glasses to correction of muscle imbalances.  We offer a full range of therapeutic care for children of all ages.  Dr. Gerber performs our pediatric and adult eye muscle surgeries for the treatment of muscular imbalances, also known as strabismus.  Pediatric surgery for removal of eyelid growths such as styes and for the treatment of blocked tear ducts are also done by Dr. Gerber.

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetes affects millions of people and can be a leading cause of preventable blindness.  Diabetic retinopathy causes loss of vision by leading to bleeding and fluid accumulation in the retina.  We offer comprehensive evaluation and laser surgery for the treatment of this potentially blinding condition.
