The Witlin Center for Advanced Eye Care is a specialty ophthalmology practice, under the medical supervision of Dr. Richard S. Witlin MD FACS that deals with conditions and diseases that affect the anterior visual system. With over 25 years of clinical experience and having personally performed over 25,000 eye surgical procedures, Dr. Witlin is uniquely qualified to handle medical and surgical conditions of the eye.
Using the most sophisticated equipment and cutting-edge techniques, the Witlin Center provides several types of vision-restoring procedures from Laser Vision Correction to Advanced Life-Style Lens Implants for cataract surgery. In addition, the Center provides specialized treatment for glaucoma, and other types of corneal disease.
Most of our patients are referred to us by other doctors or satisfied patients. We do not routinely provide eye glasses or contact lenses, as the Witlin Center physicians prefer to concentrate on helping preserve or restore sight to patients with more serious ocular conditions.
