Yavitz Eye Center | Illinois Eye Doctor & Ophthalmic Surgeon
The Yavitz Eye Center, located in Rockford, Illinois. We specialize in cataract, glaucoma, and corneal transplantation surgery, as well as the latest surgeries to reduce or eliminate your need for eyeglasses or contacts, such as LASIK.
Edward Yavitz M.D., certified by the American Academy of Ophthalmology, is one of the few ophthalmic surgeons in the United States to also be recognized by the American College of Eye Surgery for excellence in both cataract and LASIK laser vision surgery.
The entire staff at Yavitz Eye Center pride themselves in personal care for our patients. With all the available procedures it can be confusing to find the right fit, that is why Dr. Yavitz and his dedicated staff will help you find the right surgery for your needs. All surgery carries some risk; therefore it is important to choose the surgeon with the most experience and Dr. Yavitz has performed over fifty thousand procedures over his thirty year career. Most of our staff have undergone the same surgery you are now contemplating so they can share first hand experiences with you. That's how our people seem to know what you are feeling and thinking and anticipate all of your needs.
We want to exceed your expectations. For example, we never charge an extra $35 fee for testing your eyes for glasses and our typical waiting room times are less than twenty minutes. Another example of the extraordinary; you get Dr. Yavitz's personal cell phone number, not an answering service.
Our office was named a Center of Excellence by a leading manufacturer in the field of eye surgery, based on direct observation of our surgical techniques.
