Over the past two years, people have found a whole new appreciation for getting what they need close to home, especially when it comes to taking care of their health. Now, easy access to the latest advances in eye care is closer than ever because a recognized leader in the field has opened offices all across North Texas.
Key-Whitman Eye Center is home to nine convenient locations to serve Dallas, North Arlington, Frisco, Rockwall, Richardson, Plano, South Arlington, Mesquite, with their newest edition in North Fort Worth brought on by Amy Hong, MD and Ronald Barke, MD. The doctors and staff understand it’s difficult to make a long drive to see the eye doctor, so they made it their mission to offer locations throughout the DFW area. “People don’t want to leave their communities to receive care and we want to help,” said Key-Whitman staffer Miriam Moore. “With our offices in so many North Texas communities, it’s easier than ever to get leading-edge vision care close to home. We are so excited to add the Alliance area to our Key-Whitman Eye Center family. It’s an exciting area and we are thrilled to be a part of it.”
Choosing an eye doctor is an important decision because not every practice has Board-certified Ophthalmologists and the latest technologies to preserve and improve vision. At Key-Whitman Eye Center, adults receive comprehensive eye care from experienced doctors and have a full range of vision improvement options. One of the specialty areas that Key-Whitman is known for is providing laser-assisted cataract surgery and high technology lens implants. They offer the latest advanced lenses, like the Light Adjustable Lens, Synergy, Symfony, PanOptix, and Vivity, which are designed to improve vision. “Many patients have been thrilled with their results because they have less dependence on glasses or no longer even need glasses after their cataract surgery,” Miriam observed.
For patients with glaucoma and cataracts, Key-Whitman can examine whether they are eligible for MIGS (minimally invasive glaucoma stents). This breakthrough technology can provide a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for many patients because MIGS can be implanted at the same time as the cataract procedure. As a result, glaucoma patients are able to achieve lower pressures and can reduce dependency on expensive glaucoma medications. Some patients have been able to stop using their glaucoma drops altogether.
The surgeons at Key-Whitman also offer the most proven laser vision correction for younger patients who are tired of dealing with glasses or contact lenses. Patients are amazed at how quick and easy it is to have the procedure because Key-Whitman performs all-laser LASIK with one of the fastest advanced lasers in the country. According to Miriam, “Patients are excited that they can have LASIK and be back to their activities the next day.”
With their wide range of advanced technology, it’s easy to see why thousands of North Texans have chosen Key-Whitman Eye Center for their eye care. Their highly rated eye doctors, state-of-the-art services, and caring staff members set this medical team apart. And now, you can see them for your vision care close to home.
