Patients from all over the world have sough our services because of our unparalleled standards and sophisticated equipment. More importantly, we are keenly aware that proper care is not just medical science by genuine concern for people. As a result, we are very people oriented. We see you as an individual. And we pride ourselves in your satisfaction.

From basic examinations to the most intricate eye surgery, the Boynton Eye Institute provides you with the best eye care possible. Please call our office to schedule a consultation or to find out more about the latest advances in eye care.

Clear Vision is the result of light rays passing through the cornea, pupil and lens and focusing directly upon the retina. If the cornea is not round or it is too steep or too flat in relation the length of the eye, light rays focus either in front of or behind the retina. This results in "refractive errors" such as nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) or astigmatism.

Refractive Surgery works by altering the shape of the cornea so that light rays can be focused directly on the retina, and in many cases the patient's need for glasses or contact lenses is eliminated or dramatically reduced.
The Boynton Eye Institute has invested in highly sophisticated diagnostic equipment to help in assessing each patient's particular needs. One such piece of equipment is a corneal topographer. This technically advanced instrument provides the most accurate eye measurement possible to determine the appropriateness of a candidate.

Dr. Habib is experienced in all of the different refractive surgery techniques. Since each patient is different, a thorough exam must be performed so that Dr. Habib can determine which refractive surgery procedure is best suited to each patient. 
Small Cataract Incision Surgery
A cataract is the gradual clouding of a normally clear eye lens. Because the light coming through the lens to the back of the eye is blocked it cases blurred vision, glare and decreased reading ability. This is similar to the lens of a camera becoming dirty or goffy, resulting in a hazy, distorted picture.  
 Eye Problems and Aging
The aging eye has distinctive eye problems. At the Boynton Eye Institute, we're experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of the aging eye. This professional knowledge, in combination with the latest medical techniques and equipment, provide you with the best possible eye care. 
Anyone, regardless of age, race or sex can develop a cataract. A first sigh is occasional blurry or hazy vision, or when haloes appear around lights. Usually, it takes years for cataracts to develop, but as the lens clouds up it can impair one's ability to perform everyday tasks.

Cataract surgery is one of the most successful surgeries in medicine today. Over 2 million operations are performed annually in the United States. Cataract surgery is also an ever changing progressive procedure. At the Boynton Eye Institute, we employ the latest techniques and methods available in cataract surgery. 

Glaucoma Management

Glaucoma is a disease that damages the optic nerve, usually because of too much fluid pressure inside the eye. At least one in every 50 elderly Americans is affected with glaucoma. In its early stages, there is usually no pain and central vision remains clear. In its later stages, glaucoma can cause loss of vision. Early detection and treatment of glaucoma is imperative.

During your visit, your eye pressure and the condition of the optic nerve will be measured. If signs of glaucoma exist, more tests will be conducted. Anyone over 35 should be checked for glaucoma every one to two years. African-Americans, people with diabetes and those with a family history of glaucoma should be examined more often.


Macular Degeneration
This is a condition affecting central vision due to the deterioration of the macula or central area of the retina. The macula is responsible for short distance vision and for seeing close objects clearly. Most people with this condition cannot regain normal sight. However, in some cases where there's blood leaking under the retina, laser surgery may be successful in retarding vision loss.


Diabetic Eye Problems
A deterioration of the blood vessels leading to the eye's retina is the chief vision problem associated with diabetes. This is called Diabetic Retinopathy and results in leaking blood vessels which lead to blurred vision, detached retina and blindness. The longer one has diabetes, the higher the chances of this condition appearing.

Fortunately, ophthalmologists can now use lasers to seal the leaking blood vessels and reduce vision loss. But early detection is critical. Those with diabetes should undergo a complete eye exam at least once a year.
   
 
 
Illnesses that may be discovered and treated if caught early in an eye exam include high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol and heart disease.
