Welcome to

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide high quality, patient-centered eye care with compassion, empathy and respect.  We take pride in knowing our patients and make every effort to ensure a pleasant experience. We do not take your time for granted and strive to keep the office running on schedule. As delivering healthcare has become more challenging in the modern era of computers and coding, we are committed to maintaining the human connection throughout the process. We strive to accommodate urgent consultations and appointments.

Routine eye care is an important part of health maintenance. We offer comprehensive eye exams, contact lens services, and annual diabetic eye exams. Make sure you have an examination on a regular basis.
Putnoi Eye Care provides a wide range of eye care services including emergency eye care, routine eye care, contact lens services, eye care for medical conditions and surgery of the eye and eyelid.  If you have concerns such as dry eye, cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, are interested in contact lenses, or have developed conjunctivitis, please make an appointment with us today.

Comprehensive Eye Care
The lens in the eye can become cloudy and hard, a condition known as a cataract.  Cataracts can develop from normal aging, from an eye injury, or if you have taken certain medications (steroids).  Cataracts may cause blurred vision, dulled vision, sensitivity to light and glare, and/or ghost images.
If the cataract changes vision to the point that it interferes with your daily life, the cataract may need to be removed.  Surgery, with either ultrasound phacoemulsification or femtosecond laser, is the only way to remove a cataract.

Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in America, but can often go unnoticed in its earliest stages because there may be no noticeable symptoms. Regular eye exams are the best way to detect signs of the disease before serious damage has been done to your eyesight. While there is no cure for glaucoma, if detected early, your vision can often be preserved, and further damage can be prevented.

Do your eyes make you look tired? Some people develop droopy eyelids or a heavy appearance to the upper eyelids from excessive eyelid skin.
Blepharoplasty is a procedure that rejuvenates the eyelids by surgically removing this skin and resculpting the eyelids to give you a younger, refreshed appearance.

Symptoms of Dry Eye can be very uncomfortable and make simple tasks such as reading, driving, using a computer or watching TV painful and strenuous. Dry eye occurs when the quantity and/or quality of tears fails to keep the surface of the eye adequately lubricated. Experts estimate that dry eye affects millions of adults in the United States.  If you are experiencing symptoms such as dryness, tearing, redness, grittiness or burning you may have dry eye or meibomian gland dysfunction. Contact our office to schedule a consultation to determine the cause and recommended treatment options like Lipiflow.
