Practice Launches In-office Cataract Surgery

By Staff Reports, posted Sep 4, 2020
Surgical Eye Care recently expanded its services to offer of­fice-based cataract surgery.
Surgeon Dax Hawkins performed that procedure this summer for the first time for the practice, in an in-office procedure room outfitted for advanced cataract surgery.
“We knew we had to do some­thing to help patients receive the sight restoring surgery they need, especially when our usual outpatient surgery centers have cut available surgery slots in half as a result of the COVID-19 crisis,” Hawkins said in a news release.
Surgical Eye Care addressed new COVID-19 safety needs through office upgrades, installing three additional air filtration systems that purify the air with a UV-type C light, an ozone generator and an ion gen­erator, the release stated. Each room in the practice also has a UV-C light that helps purify the room.
“We appreciate all the hard work that has gone into allowing Surgical Eye Care to be able to offer the latest concept in advanced cataract surgery performed in a safe atmosphere,” said surgeon Alan Brown in the release.
