Dr. Stock and his staff are ready to help you with all your eye care and ophthalmologic needs. We provide a safe, comfortable space to optimize your eye health. As a comprehensive ophthalmologist, Dr. Stock diagnoses and treats, medically and surgically, many eye diseases. When a patient will benefit from more specialized care, he refers patients to sub-specialists in neuro-ophthalmology, or for surgery for corneal or retinal diseases, glaucoma
As your eyes age, the lens often becomes cloudy and forms a cataract. Cataracts can cause decreased vision for driving and reading. You may experience glare during night driving and a need for additional light to read. There may also be changes in the focus of the eyes.
For patients with significant cataract symptoms, Dr. Stock can remove the clouded lens and replace it with an artificial lens. This can improve your vision in many ways.
Regular glaucoma testing is important. Catching the disease early enough helps prevent or slow vision loss.
Dr. Stock performs the testing required to detect the various forms of glaucoma. This includes monitoring the intraocular pressure, gonioscopy, pachymetry, automated visual field testing, and optical coherence tomography. Depending on your situation, he may prescribe medicated eye drops or laser treatment.

It is an are of the eye at risk for a variety of diseases. Dr. Stock will evaluate and treat corneal disorders to ensure the long term clarity of your corneas.
