BayState Eye Care Group is committed to helping you preserve the health of your eyes.


The gift of sight is precious and yet we tend to take our vision for granted.  Many serious vision problems are symptom free and go undetected.  With a dilated comprehensive eye examination, the doctor is able to examine eye health as well as vision.  Remember the key to saving sight is with early detection and treatment.


The field of ophthalmology is constantly advancing and improving and we are leaders in offering these services to our valued patients.  Conditions that were untreatable in the past may now be corrected with new technology.  Regular comprehensive eye exams should always be a part of your regular health evaluation.  These should be scheduled every two years for adults and children.


BayState Eye Care is committed to educating our patients to ensure that they make informed decisions regarding the care of their eyes and we have the expertise to ensure that diseases and genetic conditions will be detected early enough to all for effective treatment.


Proactive care for aging eyes:  Many cataracts are slow growing and affect vision in such a gradual way that they are not detected.  Half of all people with glaucoma risk permanent damage because they are unaware that they have it.  Diabetics with diabetic retinal bleeding are asymptomatic at its most treatable stage.  Yearly eye examinations can determine whether you have these conditions and if treatment if required.


Importance of childcare:  While parents recognize the value of routine dental care, quite often they underestimate the importance of vision examinations for their children.  1 in 4 children have an undiagnosed vision problem and since 80% of all learning is through the visual system, decreased vision can significantly affect educational and sports performance.  We recommend that a child have their first eye examination by age 3.


In addition to the following specialties, we have an on-site optical shop,

  • Adult strabismus (cross-eyed / wall-eyed)
  • Cataract
  • Corneal and external diseases
  • Diseases and surgery of the retina and vitreous
  • Diseases and surgery of the anterior segment
  • Glaucoma
  • LASIK and PRK
  • Pediatric ophthalmology
