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.
A cataract is a clouding of the natural lens inside the eye. A cataract is a gradual thickening of the lens that causes the lens to become so clouded that light is either distorted or cannot reach the back of the eye (the retina) for transmission to the brain. When left untreated, cataracts will eventually cause blindness in most cases.
Advanced technology lenses (multi-focal and accommodating lenses), which reduce your need for glasses following cataract surgery, are an exciting new option!

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).
LATISSE™ is easy to use, FDA approved and effective. It's a once-a-day treatment you apply topically to the base of your upper eyelashes. Patients in a clinical trial saw results gradually over time (starting at 4 weeks with full results after 16 weeks).
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.
