Charlotte Ophthalmology is a leading Charlotte area eye center with over 40 years of experience. Our physicians have helped thousands of people see better, look better, and feel better. We are committed to excellence, and our patients turn to us for the best care available. We believe in one-on-one patient interaction. At our office, it’s not about the numbers…it’s about treating patients one at a time.
Our physicians welcome patients for routine eye exams. At this visit our experienced team of ophthalmic assistants and physicians will work together to check your vision, determine whether your vision could be improved with glasses or contact lenses and examine your eyes carefully with specialized technology for the presence of any eye conditions or diseases that might threaten your eyesight. Many people do not realize that some conditions like glaucoma and retinal disease may create few or no symptoms, especially in the early stages of the disease. Early detection of conditions like these allow for more effective treatment and a better prognosis.
Charlotte Ophthalmology Clinic invests in the latest laser, surgical, and pre-op testing equipment available. Our physicians are always up-to-date on the newest treatments and technologies, all delivered with the personal care our patients have come to expect.
Drs. Branner, Whiteside and Vaziri are our vision correction surgeons and physicians. They are among the most experienced and well-trained in the entire country. Together they have performed thousands of surgical, cosmetic and vision correction procedures and work as a team to meet all of your eye care needs. All are board certified by the American Academy of Ophthalmology, and they have completed extensive training as eye surgery specialists and ophthalmologists.
We are proud to announce the addition of Lensx Laser Cataract Surgery. For patients who are candidates, the latest technology for cataract surgery allows our doctors to use a surgical laser, called LENSX, for specific segments of the procedure to make cataract surgery more accurate than ever before. This laser system creates incisions without a blade so that the capsulotomy, primary incisions and even astigmatism incisions can be created more precisely.
Dr. Branner, Dr. Vaziri and Dr. Whiteside are all certified LENSX surgeons and will be happy to examine your eyes to determine if this procedure is right for you. More Information on Lensx
