In 1988 the doctors of Eyecare Associates developed the first outpatient surgery center in the New Orleans area dedicated to surgical procedures of the eye. Twenty years later, The Outpatient Eyecare Surgery Center continues to be a premiere surgical facility for those patients needing cataract, glaucoma, corneal or plastic surgery of the eye. Advanced microsurgery and laser procedures are also performed there.
