Our Services

  • Cataract Surgery​

    • When the crystalline lens of the eye becomes cloudy and opaque, it's called a cataract. Cataracts often cause blurry vision, glare in bright lights, difficulty reading and driving, and poor night vision. Cataracts are treated through a surgery involving foldable lens implants.

    • Recently, we have witnessed major advances in cataract surgery technology. These advancements have been both in the surgical techniques, as well with the intraocular lenses.  Although the standard techniques are successful and remain an option for patients, these new techniques promise greater safety and a greater range of vision after surgery. Dr. Rajiv Rugwani is pleased to be able to offer the latest in cataract surgery technology to Waxahachie residents and their neighboring communities. 

      • Presbyopia correction: For patients who are candidates, a multifocal implant can help correct for the natural loss of focusing that occurs as the eye matures.  This implant is designed to restore some of the accommodation that has been lost as we age. This allows usable vision at distance and increased reading ability compared to a standard implant.​

      • Astigmatic correction: for those patients who have pre-existing astigmatism,  implants and/or other surgical techniques can significantly reduce the astigmatic need for glasses after cataract surgery.

      • Femtosecond Laser Cataract Surgery: The latest advance in cataract surgery is a laser that assists the surgeon in creating accurate incisions and softening the cataract in a way that less ultrasound energy is needed to remove it. The laser can perform critical incisions with ten times the precision compared to the standard, manual technique. This offers the promise of increased safety and peace of mind for our patients and their families.

      • ORA Aided Surgery: The ORA SYSTEM tracks your eye during surgery like a GPS system tracks​ your car on the road. Using this technology, Dr Rugwani can make real-time adjustments to arrive at a better result. This differs from basic cataract surgery in which visual disorders are addressed after the surgery, during follow-up visits.

  • Complete Eye Examination​

    • Frequent eye examinations are a vital part of maintaining proper eye health and preserving the most crucial of a person's five senses. By attending regular eye examinations, you have the best chance of catching more serious eye conditions early on.​

  • Cornea & External Disease

    • The cornea is the eye’s outermost layer. It is the clear, dome­shaped surface that covers the front of the eye. Every time you blink, tears are distributed across the cornea to moisturize it and and allow it to heal. If damage occurs to the cornea, an ophthalmologist should be consulted to find the best medical or surgical treatment.

  • Diabetes Eye Care

    • ​​Diabetes is a leading cause of blindness in the USA. Diabetic retinopathy ​refers to the damage caused by bleeding and the swelling in the back portion of the eye. We provide several types of surgical treatments for diabetic retinopathy. It is extremely important that diabetic patients receive regular eye exams and exercise good control over their diabetes.  

  • Glasses Prescription & Contact Lens Fitting
    • Contacts are a luxury, glasses are a necessity. Whether you choose to sport an invisible set of contacts or a stylish set of glasses, it's important to maintain an up to date prescription to retain your best vision possible.​​ Dr. Rugwani and our staff provide accurate prescriptions to keep you seeing your best.

  • Glaucoma Treatment

    • ​Glaucoma is a condition in which the pressure results in damage to the optic nerve​. This damage to the optic nerve can result in permanent loss of vision. Glaucoma is a lifelong condition which cannot be cured but can be controlled through medical and surgical treatments.
  • Macular Degeneration (AMD)

    • Macular Degeneration is disease causes central vision loss.  There is, as yet, no outright cure for macular degeneration, but some treatments may delay its progression or even improve vision. Treatments for macular degeneration depend on whether the disease is in its early-stage, dry form or in the more advanced, wet form that can lead to serious vision loss.
