We welcome new patients of all ages and believe strongly in putting the patient first.

We also provide ReSTOR and Toric Intraocular Lens implants. Our in-office laser eye surgery is offered as a means of treating secondary cataracts and glaucoma, as well as certain retinal diseases. Patients with diabetes are carefully monitored for onset or progressive diabetic retinopathy. We are a participating Medicare provider and work with most medical health plans within Northwest Indiana.

Premium Lens Cataract Surgery

The Deen-Gross Eye Centers is proud to offer patients alternatives when it comes time for cataract surgery. Dr. Gross has been using lens implants correcting astigmatism and multifocal lenses for over four years.

Cataracts are a progressive change in one's natural lens. They obscure vision, making performing daily tasks difficult from a visual standpoint. When they are significant enough to interfere with eyesight, the recommended treatment is surgical removal and placement of an intraocular lens. The new lens is made of a soft acrylic material and is matched to the power of the patient's eye, reducing dependency on glasses.

Some people have an abnormal curvature known as astigmatism. Modern technology is available to use a TORIC implant, reducing that astigmatism from within the eye. Patients are very happy with a tremendous improvement in visual quality. Dr. Gross believes in this technology so much, he even implanted this in his own father.

Traditional lens implants have only one focal range, most people require reading glasses after cataract surgery. Presbyobic correcting or multifocal lens implants are also available. Dr. Gross implants the RESTOR brand of multifocal implant, results are very good with people out of glasses 90% of the time after using this technology.

Lasik at the Deen-Gross Eye Centers

We have been performing Laser Vision Correction or LASIK, at the Deen-Gross Eye Centers for over fourteen years. Laser vision correction is a proven method to get rid of glasses or contact lenses. We can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.

LASIK is an outpatient procedure, usually only taking about ten minutes and both eyes can be done on the same day. Recovery is normally quite quick, allowing you to resume your normal routine in a matter of days.

Laser vision correction is not for everyone. At the Deen-Gross Eye Centers, we closely examine all candidates prior to surgery. All patients are seen before and after surgery by the surgeons themselves, adding a personal touch and instilling the confidence you deserve.

If you are considering freeing yourself from a life of glasses or contacts, please call today for your free LASIK evaluation.

We are a participating Medicare provider and work with most medical health plans within Northwest Indiana. For more information on our services or to schedule an appointment, please contact us at any of our three locations below.
