Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of certain diseases, disorders, and injuries of the eyes. Our team of board-certified ophthalmologists brings a wealth of experience and expertise, providing safe and effective treatment of a wide variety of ocular ailments within the comfort of our modern and updated facility.

As we age, our vision is one of the first things that begin to deteriorate. What may start as a small problem, like blurred vision, may escalate into full vision loss without early detection and treatment. It is critically important that each of us schedules regular eye exams to stay up to date on our eye health.

Lafayette Surgical Specialty Hospital’s Ophthalmology department has taken the necessary to become Acadiana’s leader in ophthalmic technology, providing the industry’s best surgical microscopes, instrumentation, femtosecond laser, and staff. Prior to surgery, your ophthalmologist will perform examinations and run diagnostic imaging to best evaluate the health of your eyes. If necessary, your doctor may recommend surgical treatment options to improve your eye health, including, but not limited to, cataract surgery, glaucoma surgery, or laser-assisted vision correction.

What Makes Lafayette Surgical Specialty Hospital Different?

Lafayette Surgical Specialty Hospital serves over 8,000 patients per year and features eight operating rooms and three procedure rooms. Each one of these rooms has been designed for maximum performance when treating a wide variety of surgical issues, including ophthalmology. We also maintain an average patient satisfaction rate of 98%.

Our board-certified ophthalmologists specialize in both minimally invasive and surgical procedures designed to correct ocular disorders while minimizing damage to the sensitive tissues surrounding the eye and the central visual system.

Corrective treatments like cataract removal, refractive surgery, and glaucoma procedures can be performed on-site without ever having to leave the hospital or be transferred to a different physician. Our ophthalmologists have received specialized training to handle these delicate surgical procedures, as well as advanced care training to ensure patient satisfaction and excellent visual outcomes at every turn.

That’s what makes Lafayette Surgical Specialty Hospital different. We have highly skilled, specialized surgeons across each department, and our physician-owned model ensures that every surgeon who works in our advanced facility provides the best results possible for every patient, every time!

Our specializations include:

The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends annual eye exams for children starting around age 5, and adults should schedule an eye exam at least once a year after the age of 40 – with an ophthalmologist. People who use corrective lenses like glasses or contacts should receive an eye exam at least once a year, regardless of age.

Early detection and treatment can help to prevent vision loss. Once you’ve noticed symptoms, you may have already lost some vision.

My husband and I both have chronic illnesses so we have been in numerous hospitals. This was the most pleasant experience we have ever had. The staff was very accommodating and when you called the nurses station someone came to the room immediately. The food was even the best hospital food. Recommend to anyone.


My son had his adenoids taken out and tubes put in. Everybody from the front desk to recovery was awesome! My toddler was a handful but they did everything they could to make all of us comfortable.


I rate this hospital and my experience a 5 out of 5 stars. I have to say that the facility is very clean. Precautions are taken to protect the hospital, staff, and patients against Covid. I would not hesitate to recommend Lafayette Surgical Specialty Hospital to anyone. Just can’t say enough positive things about the hospital and all the staff. Thank you!


My stay at Lafayette Surgical Specialty Hospital was the best. Everyone was compassionate and professional. I only suffered minimal pain. The food was excellent; the hospital was very clean and orderly. I’m very particular about cleanliness and the hospital met even my tough standards. Everyone was so kind. God Bless.
