Diabetic Eye Care

Diabetes is a disease that can affect the entire body, but it’s infamous for having significant effects on your eyes. That’s why, if you have or are at risk for diabetes, it’s important to have an eye doctor look for related conditions like diabetic retinopathy.

Glaucoma Treatment

Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness worldwide, and due to its tendency to cause vision loss without warning, it’s been dubbed the “silent thief of sight.”

Pre and Post Operative Eye Care

A successful and comfortable surgical experience should put just as much focus on pre- and post-operative care as the procedure itself. Dr. Bohnert provides compassionate care to patients before and after virtually any eye surgery to ensure the smoothest recovery and clearest vision for our patients!

Ocular Disease

It’s important to identify potential eye conditions early to safeguard against vision loss. Dr. Bohnert is able to identify potential issues long before they show symptoms and personalize treatment plans to maximize patient success.
