Call Your Ophthalmologist: Your Vision Affects Your Health
Have you canceled or delayed your eye exam due to COVID-19? Healthy vision is not just a luxury. It is a medical necessity.
In 1996, three Central Ohio eye surgeons opened the very first free-standing surgical center dedicated to eyes in the state of Ohio. While surgical centers are now the standard of care for specialties, back then, the Columbus Eye Surgery Center on East Broad Street was revolutionary. The three-member surgical team of Dr. Richard Orlando, Dr. Robin Beran, and the now-retired Dr. Robert Bruce were called “foolish” and “crazy,” but today, they’re looked at as true medical visionaries.
This first-of-its-kind center has provided a way for thousands of patients to have important procedures performed on their eyes without ever having to step foot in a hospital. Patients can undergo any type of eye surgery, including cataract, retina, eyelid, glaucoma, cross-eyed correction, corneal transplants and laser procedures.
