Laser Cataract Surgery

A cataract is caused by a buildup of proteins in the natural lens of the eye. While most cataracts are age-related, they can also develop after surgery, or as a result of a disease like glaucoma or diabetes. Over time, cataracts cause blurry, clouded, or distorted vision. Laser cataract surgery is the most advanced cataract removal method available. During surgery, the cloudy lens is removed and replaced with an artificial lens to restore your vision. Tired of cataracts affecting your quality of life? VisionFirst Eye Center was the first eye care practice to provide laser cataract surgery in Alabama. Contact us to schedule a personalized evaluation for laser cataract surgery in Birmingham, Alabaster, Pell City and Trussville.

LASIK eye surgery is the world’s most popular procedure to correct refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. LASIK can eliminate your dependence on glasses and contacts and improve your vision to 20/20 or better. VisionFirst Eye Center uses the most advanced laser technology to ensure a fast procedure and recovery. Our board-certified surgeon provides custom LASIK in Alabama from our convenient eye care centers in Birmingham, Alabaster, Pell City and Trussville. Contact us to meet with our LASIK doctor in Alabama to see if you’re a candidate.

VisionFirst is happy to offer the iDesign wavefront analyzer from AMO-VISX in addition to our LASIK eye surgery practices. We are the first practice in Birmingham, Alabama to offer this advanced technology to our patients. The iDesign system measures the internal optics and surfaces of your eyes more precisely than other methods. This level of precision allows the iDesign system to create a “blueprint” unique to each of your eyes, and a personalized treatment plan for each individual eye.

Eye Exams

Routine eye exams are essential to identify eye problems, prevent eye damage, and maintain healthy eyesight. A general eye exam involves a series of tests to analyze your vision and check for nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. Your eye doctor may also use special equipment to thoroughly examine your eyes for diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, or diabetic retinopathy. VisionFirst Eye Center provides routine eye exams in Birmingham, Alabaster, Pell City and Trussville. Contact us today to schedule your exam with an eye doctor in Alabama.

Pediatric Eye Exams

Eyesight is the foundation for motor development in children — crawling, walking, and hand-eye coordination are all dependent on healthy vision. Ensure your child can see properly by scheduling a comprehensive pediatric eye exam. Here at VisionFirst Eye Center, our friendly staff of eye care experts provides pediatric eye exams for infants, toddlers, and grade-school children. A pediatric eye care specialist will examine your child for crossed eyes, nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Eye conditions are much easier to treat when they’re caught early. Schedule your child’s pediatric eye exam at any of our offices in Birmingham, Alabaster, Pell City and Trussville.
