At Drs. Centar, Imler, Gjurich and Caldwell, we know that a comprehensive eye examination is more than just determining a prescription for glasses or contacts. We are committed to helping you maintain ocular health and routine eye exams are essential in doing just that. Our exams consist of a wide range of tests and procedures that evaluate not just your eyes but also your entire visual system.
When making an appointment with Doctors of Optometry, you can be sure you will receive the highest quality of eye care available, visit after visit, year after year. Our doctors are devoted to providing thorough, individualized examinations to patients of all ages. Every patient is screened and tested for various eye diseases and conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts and general eye changes that can occur from systemic diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure and auto-immune abnormalities.

Services provided by Dr. Parag Parekh
Most commonly we think of this as “LASIK”, but there are many other types of refractive surgery, including PRK, ICL and Refractive Lens Exchange. It is vital to match the right type of refractive surgery to the specifics of your condition, including your age and the amount of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism that your eyes have. Dr. Parekh is the only refractive surgeon in the area offering such a wide array of options.
- Refractive Lens Exchange
- Implantable Contact Lens
Dr. Parekh uses the latest in lens removal technology. He prefers the smallest incision size to encourage rapid healing and return of vision. This surgery is an out-patient surgery and takes just a few minutes in the operating room. It is done in the setting of local anesthesia and intravenous sedation, so the patient is typically calm and comfortable throughout the procedure. Patients often forget the entire experience due to the medications given during surgery.
Patients return home after surgery and are seen in the office the next day. Most activities can be resumed soon after surgery.
In the days and weeks after surgery, a scar tissue can develop around the lens implant. This “posterior capsular opacity” or PCO is very common, and can lead to blurry vision and glare, symptoms much like the original cataract caused. Fortunately, it is easily treated with a laser procedure called YAG capsulotomy. This procedure is painless and is done in the office.
The first line of surgical options are the minimally invasive techniques like the iStent. These types of surgeries often help prevent the need for major glaucoma surgeries like Tube Shunts or Trabeculectomy, which have a higher complication rate.
The iStent is performed along with cataract surgery and the device helps bypass the Trabecular Meshwork–an area that prevents the outflow of fluid.
SLT–Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty
SLT is a simple, painless and highly effective laser procedure done in the office. The laser treatment helps the angle work better, allowing the fluid to flow out more easily and thereby lowering the eye pressure. This is Dr. Parekh’s preferred treatment for newly diagnosed open angle glaucoma because of its convenience and effectiveness.
Our doctors take pride in providing you with the care you deserve in a comfortable and caring environment.
