Virginia Eye Consultants has opened its fifth office location, where the team of eye doctors will provide a wide range of eye treatments and vision correction options.

Norfolk, VA — The team at Virginia Eye Consultants is proud to announce the recent opening of their new location in Virginia Beach. This is the fifth office for the practice, as they also provide care in Norfolk, Hampton, Suffolk, and Carrollton. Board-certified ophthalmologists Jay Starling, MD and Dayna Lago, MD will head the new office, though the practice’s other eye doctors may see patients on an as-needed basis.

The decision to expand has come with the growth of Virginia Eye Consultants. With several patients already located in Virginia Beach, the eye doctors say this was the perfect area to open a new office. They have been seeing patients at the new office since early this year, offering their entire breadth of services available at their other locations as well. From vision correction to advanced treatment of eye conditions, patients can receive care for such concerns as:

  • Cornea and eye infections
  • All-Laser LASIK and PRK
  • Laser cataract surgery with advanced lens options
  • Dry eye disease
  • Glaucoma
  • Diabetic eye disease
  • Tearing
  • And more!

While all services are offered in Virginia Beach, procedures like LASIK and cataract surgery are still performed at the practice’s Ambulatory Surgery Center.

The team is pleased to extend their services to current and future patients in the Virginia Beach area and hopes the new office acts as a more convenient location to those in need of eye care solutions.

27 Celebrities Who’ve Had LASIK Eye Surgery

LASIK Eye Surgery is a popular procedure used to correct the vision of people who are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism. From someone who’s tired of dealing with glasses and contact lenses everyday to an athlete who needs his or her vision to be as sharp as possible, LASIK makes having perfect vision a reality for many.

Laser correction surgery has become popular because of the benefits patients receive almost immediate after the procedure. Some of these benefits include:

  • Around 96% of patients will have their desired vision after the procedure.
  • There is very little, if any, discomfort associated with the procedure.
  • Quick recovery. Most patients return to their normal schedule the next day.
  • You save time and money that would otherwise be spent on glasses or contact lenses.
  • Provides the freedom from glasses and contacts so you can enjoy the beach, swimming, golf, tennis, scuba, or just playing with your children.

The iStent: Small Wonder

The iStent (Glaukos), one of the newer options for minimally invasive glaucoma surgery, has become increasingly popular for glaucoma patients who at the same time suffer from visually significant cataracts. This procedure is a great option for patients ready to have cataract surgery who also have early to moderate open-angle glaucoma. Ideal candidates are those already on one to three glaucoma drugs whose Intraocular Pressure (IOP) – the target pressure in patients with glaucoma are in the mid-teen range, have compliance issues and/or want to decrease using drops for managing their glaucoma.

This procedure has several advantages. First, when compared to traditional glaucoma surgical procedures, it’s minimally invasive, with a faster operative time, more rapid healing and fewer complications. The procedure is contact lens wearer-friendly. That said, this procedure does have some disadvantages. The iStent indication is limited to implantation in combination with cataract surgery, as opposed to a stand-alone procedure. Although the implant is very small, placing a foreign object into the eye does introduce the potential risk of intraoperative complications, e.g., if the device is malpositioned and the tip becomes occluded by iris or if the device becomes dislodged. Postoperatively, there can be IOP spikes and hyphema. Also, because it is a fairly new procedure, it is considered experimental and not currently covered by many commercial insurances, although it does have excellent Medicare coverage. Preoperatively, candidates require a full glaucoma and cataract work up with ancillary testing. Blood thinners should be stopped preoperatively if possible. Post-op care is the same as traditional cataract surgery. Patients should be aware that their vision may be blurred for the first few days due to the mild bleeding during the surgery.
