Your eyes deserve excellent medical attention.Photo

Your eyesight is too important for anything less than excellent care. Which is why, at The Center for Eye Care, you’re cared for by experienced, board-certified ophthalmologists and seasoned medical support staff. We offer you leading-edge care, but we’re compassionate and understanding. We pay attention to the smallest details, and we believe in ethical medicine. And we don’t shy away from the tough cases. Which might explain why nearly two-thirds of our patients are referred by other patients.

A tradition of raising the standard in eye care.

We’re proud that leading-edge eye medicine has been our tradition for more than a decade. Our medical director, George M. Thurber, MD, was the second physician in Mississippi to perform LASIK and the first in the area to perform custom LASIK, the new standard. He was one of the first in the state to perform no-shot, no-stitch cataract surgery and to offer bifocal implants after cataract surgery. Our physicians were also among the first in the state to perform conductive keratoplasty, to perform hyperopic and mix-astigmatism LASIK and to use WaveScan® technology to assess the entire visual system.

Patient-first service & attention.

We’re here to make a positive difference in your life, and it shows. We treat you like family, building a relationship with you founded on trust and understanding. We spend the time to get to know you, to explain your care and condition and to answer all your questions. Your needs will always come first. You won’t be kept waiting. And you’ll always know that we love what we do… and that we take pride in our reputation for exceptional service.

State-of-the-art equipment & capabilities.

Today, there are many more options – and more effective methods – than ever for keeping your eyes healthy. But only if you’re being diagnosed and treated using the latest capabilities. Here at The Center for Eye Care, we have the most advanced technologies, tools and equipment… and the skill necessary to use them expertly. Plus, we perform most treatments in-house or in a private, state-of-the-art surgical center.


Great results are our top priority.

In eye medicine, what matters most is your vision. That’s why, no matter what your symptoms or condition, our goal is always the best possible outcome. We’ll take on difficult problems and treat them with the dedication and care we give every patient. Because, for us, excellent results are far more important taking the easy path to your treatment.

Comprehensive diagnostics & treatment for children & adults.

High-tech eye health exams – We use advanced corneal topography and vision-assessment technology to evaluate the health of your eyes.
No-stitch, no-shot cataract surgery – Through a 2.5mm incision, our surgeons break up and remove cataracts… with much less risk than other methods. Results are immediate, and no eye patch is needed.
Medical, surgical & laser glaucoma treatment – Based on your diagnosis, we’ll use the treatment that will offer the best outcome with the least amount of risk.
Advanced care for diabetic retinopathy – Tiny retinal aneurysms are sealed with a laser. This new standard has reduced rates of blindness dramatically.
Custom, advanced LASIK – Our experience and advanced equipment allow us to customize your laser vision correction with state-of-the-art precision.
Conductive keratoplasty for improved near vision – Over 40? Trouble reading? We can precisely change the eye’s contour so images are focused correctly on the retina.
Corneal transplant – Diseased or damaged corneas can be transplanted with relative ease in a painless procedure.
Leading-edge corneal topography – Advanced mapping technology lets us customize contact lenses and provide more precise treatments.
Refractive surgery & correction for crossed or out-turned eyes – There is no such thing as “common” eye surgery, which is why experience, reputation and dedication to excellence are so important.
Registered low-vision specialist – Our specialist performs screenings and helps low-vision patients live as independently as possible.

See well. Look great.

The Center for Eye Care offers cosmetic services to help the areas around your eyes look youthful and vibrant. In addition to Botox® and Restylane® injections, our ophthalmologists provide laser skin resurfacing to reduce worry lines and crow’s-feet. We also perform lower-eyelid blepharoplasty to eliminate “bags” under the eyes… without the scar!

Complete solutions for all your vision needs.

To help you see your best, we provide complete contact lens fitting, including all options such as extended-wear contacts and contacts for hard-to-fit patients. We also have a huge election of fashion frames and every kind of spectacle lens and option you need or want.
