PREMIER SURGEON November/December 2011

Premium care through superior technology

James S. Lewis, MD, and The Eye Institute of Salus University

Creating the premium practice means staying “ahead of the pack” in a number of areas, not the least of which being the technology aspect of ophthalmology. At The Eye Institute of Salus University, James S. Lewis, MD, has done just that, creating a high-tech yet inviting environment for his patients.

“I’ve been interested in imaging, particularly video imaging, even before I started my practice,” Dr. Lewis told Premier Surgeon. “It’s the perfect match because ophthalmology lends itself to the creative use of optics, ultrasound, laser interferometry and laser techniques.”

Dr. Lewis’ love of technology can be seen in every aspect of the well-appointed office. Within the waiting areas, patients watch educational videos on large-screen, high-definition LCD and plasma monitors, and each surgical procedure is recorded to DVD using top-of-the-line cameras so patients can view their surgery at home.
