I have very dry eyes that were often red and hurt.  I was referred to Dr. Mayes for a treatment called Lipiflow.  I am so pleased with the results. No more redness and no hurting, even by the end of the day!

Dr. Mayes has been fabulous. All the staff are caring and professional. I would encourage anyone to go to this clinic for any eye problems

Premium IOL Providers Helping Patients See Clearly after Cataract Surgery

Our doctors offer premium intraocular lenses (or IOLs) designed to replace your natural eye lenses and restore your vision following cataract surgery. Premium IOLs offer several advantages:

  • Clear vision at all ranges without the need for contact lenses or glasses 
  • Brighter, vivid colors in your field of vision
  • Minimized discomfort from glares 

At Mills Eye + Facial Surgery, we are at the forefront of cataract surgery and premium IOL technology. We proudly use AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® lenses—the first and only trifocal lens in the United States. The PanOptix lens offers enhanced vision at any distance and is available in a toric lens style to help patients with astigmatism. This lens is so impressive, that 99 percent of patients who have received this lens would choose the same brand again.

If you are considering cataract surgery, make sure you work with a provider that offers the very best premium lens options. Contact Mills Eye + Facial Surgery to learn more about our premium IOLs today
