LASIK is one of the most popular, eye surgery choices for treating low-to-high levels of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Dr. Byer is the most experienced Refractive/LASIK Surgeon in the area.
The Visian ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens) on the other hand, is a lens that is permanently implanted in the eye behind the iris and in front of the natural lens. The lens is intended to correct moderate to severe nearsightedness (myopia) for those patients who do not qualify for LASIK.
Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic plastic surgery procedure that removes fat and excess skin from the area around the eyelids. It can remove the puffy bags under the patient's eyes and correct droopy eyelids. Patients who undergo blepharoplasty generally wind up with eyes that look younger and more alert.
The best candidates for blepharoplasty are men and women who are healthy (both physically and mentally) and who have realistic expectations about what blepharoplasty can and cannot do for them. Your health insurance plan may cover this procedure if your eyelids obstruct your visual field.
Juvéderm® is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Your health care professional eases Juvéderm® injectable gel under the skin to instantly restore your skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your "smile lines" or "parentheses" (nasolabial folds—the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).
Juvéderm® provides a smooth, natural look and feel—so everyone will notice (but no one will know)!
BOTOX Cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical, physician administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. It is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive skincare treatment that targets rough skin, acne and wrinkles by removing the upper, dead layer of the skin and stimulating new skin cells to grow. Microdermabrasion gives you smoother, softer, younger looking skin instantly. Microdermabrasion requires absolutely no recovery time. Unlike traditional dermabrasion or chemical pealing, Microdermabrasion is done progressively instead of aggressively.
SkinPen II Benefits:
SkinPen II stimulates your skin’s natural ability to produce new collagen and elastin for healthier, younger-looking skin.
SkinPen II creates microscopic channels in the skin, which also allows products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin. Production of new collagen and elastin production can reverse years of sun damage, improve acne scars and enhance the overall appearance of aging skin.
SkinPen II is remarkably effective for scars, wrinkles, sun damage, uneven skin tone, lax skin, large pores, and thin skin.
The SkinPen II procedure typically takes 15-30 minutes, depending upon the size of the area and the severity of skin damage.
Little or no downtime. On average, patients are pink for two to four days. Some patients heal completely in 24 hours.
