Dr. Lewis' suite is equipped with the latest diagnostic and therapeutic equipment in order to provide advanced care for North Philadelphia Cataract, Cornea, Glaucoma and LASIK patients. For cataract patients, Dr. Lewis offers micro-incision cataract surgery with premium intraocular lenses, including nanoFLEX, nanoFLEX Plus, Crystalens, ReSTOR and Tecnis Multifocal Lenses. For laser eye surgery patients, Dr. Lewis offers LASIK and Epi-LASIK, a sophisticated refractive surgery procedure that he has been performing for more than six years. Patients with cataract and glaucoma can become spectacle and glaucoma drop-free with combined Cataract and AquaFlow™ surgery. This minimally invasive glaucoma surgery is performed without sutures and provides extremely rapid visual rehabilitation. Dr. Lewis has performed more AquaFlow procedures than any other US surgeon.
