Co-Management

drshallCo-management means “teamwork”. Your local Optometrist delivers primary eye care – annual examinations, prescription of glasses and contact lenses, and the diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases. Serving as the gatekeeper for most patients, local Optometrist detect eye disease prior to symptoms being displayed and then determine the correct method of care. Early detection improves or even saves the vision of people suffering from eye disease. As a result, local Optometrists will continue to play a vital role in the early detection of eye disease as our population continues to age and vision problems increase.

Commonwealth Eye Surgery provides both secondary eye care, special testing and management of difficult eye diseases, and tertiary eye care, surgery. We provide:

  • Cataract and Implant Surgery
  • Refractive Laser and Implant Surgery
  • Laser Surgery for “After-Cataracts” and Glaucoma
  • Consultations – Retina, Glaucoma, and Oculoplastics

Your local Optometrist can provide most, if not all, of your follow up care. Commonwealth Eye Surgery may also evaluate you at regular intervals. This coordinated effort ensures that you receive the highest quality care in the most convenient manner. Your travel time is kept to a minimum. This eye care system requires a high degree of communication and is why we are continually discussing your care with your local Optometrist. We are always available to see you or talk with you by telephone if you have any questions or concerns.
