Our practice has been serving the patients of Central New York since 1965 providing comprehensive eye care as well as sophisticated eye consultation and surgery. Our practice founder, Mark Elias, MD brought the first eye laser to the greater Utica/Rome area in 1982. We have followed the tradition of bringing quality eye care to our community. All of our doctors have close ties to Central/Upstate New York.

LOSS OF VISION CAN BE PREVENTED

  • Regular eye exams can help prevent unnecessary vision loss.
  • People at any age with symptoms of or risk factors such as diabetes, hypertension, family history of eye disease should see an ophthalmologist for an exam.
  • Adults with no symptoms of or risk factors for eye disease should have an eye exam at age 40 – the time when early signs of disease and changes in vision may start to happen. Based on the results of the initial screening, your ophthalmologist will let you know how often to return for follow-up exams.
  • Adults over 65 years or older should have an eye exam every one to two years, or as recommended by your ophthalmologist.
