Capital Eye Consultants is different from the typical eye care practice. We are a consultant practice for eye diseases and surgery in the subspecialty areas of all diseases relating to the vitreous, the macular, the retina, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, retinal attachments/detachments, uveitis, cataracts, and glaucoma.
Our practice has a family friendly approach to medicine and the doctors strive to educate their patients on understanding eye diseases as a key to maximize care. Our charge is to help patients make the best decisions in the increasingly complex specialty of eye surgery and care.
The mission of Capital Eye Consultants is to provide the highest quality of eye care by using the latest technology currently available while maintaining a patient-centered and family-friendly approach..
