Bascom Palmer Eye Institute's comprehensive ophthalmology services provides general eye care for all types of conditions of the eye and surrounding structures. Services provided include comprehensive eye examinations as well as consultation in all areas of ophthalmology. Our comprehensive ophthalmologists offer ophthalmic evaluations that screen and treat a wide range of eye conditions including cataracts, ocular surface disorders, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration.
In addition, if needed, a complete evaluation is provided to determine the cause of visual loss when a diagnosis has not been established. If subspecialty surgical needs arise (glaucoma, oculoplastic or vitreoretinal surgery) appropriate referrals can be made to surgical subspecialists within Bascom Palmer Eye Institute.

- Age-related Vision Loss (Presbyopia)

- Dry Eye
- Flashes and Floaters
