Ocular diseases, including diabetic eye conditions

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 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.”

Dry eyes and ocular surface disease

Dry eye disease is an exceedingly common condition when your eyes aren’t getting enough hydration from your tears.

Open Letter to Patients

Thank you for choosing Alliance Vision Institute for your vision care needs. It is an honor to be a part of your journey to better vision.

I have struggled with myopia since grade school, and wore contact lenses and glasses throughout my early life. This personal experience sparked my interest in the eye and vision correction, leading me to pursue a career in ophthalmology. During my pre-med studies, I was fascinated by the visual pathways, which operate much like a circuit board. This curiosity led me to shadow and volunteer in the Ophthalmology department during medical school, where I discovered my passion for this specialty.

At Alliance Vision Institute, we believe that improved vision can enhance every stage of life. I have seen children excel in school, adults gain confidence, and seniors reconnect with their surroundings after vision correction procedures. Every patient’s story is unique, and it is a privilege to help you achieve clearer vision and a better quality of life.
