Eye Doctors in Portland, ME
With a premier team of eye doctors in the Portland, Maine area, our eye doctors offer you a wide variety of eye care services that include:
Cataracts are a natural part of aging, and many people begin to develop them. However, the best way to treat cataracts is through cataract surgery. Cataract Surgery occurs when your eye’s natural lens is replaced with an artificial one called an intraocular lens (IOLs). Depending on the IOL you choose, you could experience your best vision yet!
LASIK and PRK are types of refractive surgery that reshape the surface of the cornea. Both are used to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and reduce dependency on glasses and contact lenses. The main difference between the surgeries is PRK removes a piece of your cornea while LASIK creates a flap in your cornea. However, not everyone who wants LASIK or PRK may be right for it. So feel free to take our LASIK self-test today to find out if one of these refractive surgeries is right for you!
The retina is a very thin layer of tissue that lines the inner part of the back of the eye. The retina captures light through the lens of the eye and transmits that image to the brain; We proudly treat many retina issues at Maine Eye Center. Some of these issues include retinal detachment, flashes & floaters, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy.
The cornea is the outermost layer of the eye. The primary function of the cornea is to allow light to pass through the eye to the retina. At Maine Eye Center, we offer cornea transplants & DSEK and treatment for cornea issues like keratoconus.
The best way to prevent glaucoma is through routine eye exams. Glaucoma earned the nickname “the silent thief of sight” because it does not show any symptoms until severe damage has been done. However, if you develop glaucoma, we offer treatment options to slow the progression of the disease. Unfortunately, damage that is done by glaucoma cannot be reversed, but treatment options can prevent or slow further damage from happening.
At Maine Eye Center, we offer pediatric ophthalmology services for all children. Some of the areas we specialize in include: refractive errors, strabismus, amblyopia, congenital & traumatic cataracts, near-ophthalmology, and retinopathy of prematurity. We also offer short-term treatment, long-term strategy, and rehabilitative care to monitor your child’s vision over time.

Eye Exams are crucial to maintaining healthy eyes and vision and being aware of any developing complications. We proudly offer comprehensive eye exams that will be sure to help you feel confident about the health of your eyes and vision. In addition, since some eye conditions do not show symptoms until it is too late, eye exams are the best way to catch any eye issue before it becomes severe.
