Eye Surgery

Eye Surgery

We specialize in advanced eye surgery for cataracts, glaucoma, laser vision correction such as LASIK or PRK, and corneal transplantation.

Cataract surgery & refractive cataract surgery

Cataracts are a progressive clouding of our crystalline lenses that can occur as we get older. Symptoms of cataracts include progressively worsening blurry vision as well as heightened sensitivity to glare, such as from oncoming headlights while driving. Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness worldwide. While most cataracts develop as we get older, they can also be associated with trauma, prior eye surgeries, steroid use, and medical conditions such as diabetes. Advanced treatment solutions include premium intraocular lenses and laser cataract surgery. We may recommend toric intraocular lenses to reduce astigmatism or multifocal lenses to allow you to retain your ability to read without glasses after surgery. Learn more…

Glaucoma surgery

Glaucoma treatment often starts with prescription eye drops to reduce your eye pressure. If conservative glaucoma treatment fails to provide sufficient relief, glaucoma laser surgery may be necessary. The most commonly performed laser eye surgery for glaucoma is a laser trabeculoplasty, a procedure that improves fluid drainage and reduces eye pressure. In more advanced cases, your doctor may recommend surgery, such as minimally invasive glaucoma surgery or a glaucoma filtering or tube shunt surgery.. Learn more…

Pterygium surgery

Pterygium is a pinkish, triangular, noncancerous tissue that can progressive grow onto the cornea. It may also cause irritation and can typically involve both eyes. Pterygium is most common among people who spend a great deal of time in the sun. Learn more…

Corneal transplantation

Dr. Chocron performs endothelial keratoplasty, or corneal transplantation surgery, to replace a damaged cornea and restore proper corneal function. After removing damaged or diseased corneal tissue, he replaces it with healthy cornea from a deceased human donor to restore vision, reduce pain and improve the appearance of the eye. DMEK (Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty) is a procedure that involves removal of the cornea’s Descemet membrane and endothelium and replacement with tissue from a donor cornea. DMEK is the newest endothelial corneal transplantation technique and Dr. Chocron is one of the few surgeons in South Florida who performs this procedure. DSEK (Descemet stripping endothelial keratoplasty) is the more traditional approach and can still be recommended in certain cases. Learn more…


LASIK (laser in-situ keratomileusis) is eye surgery that can eliminate your need for corrective contact lenses or eyeglasses. In most cases, having LASIK helps you achieve great vision without glasses. People with mild nearsightedness typically achieve the best success with refractive LASIK surgery. LASIK is not for everyone, and for some patients we may instead recommend a similar procedure called PRK (photorefractive keratectomy). Learn more…


Photorefractive keratectomy or PRK is an alternative vision correction surgery that is typically reserved for very nearsighted patients who are not candidates for LASIK. During the procedure, the superficial corneal layer, or epithelium, is removed, and the excimer laser treatment corrects the refractive error of the eye in order to improve vision. PRK may be safer for people who are more likely to be struck in the eye, such as those involved in contact sports, law enforcement or the military. Learn more…
