New Orleans Eye Specialists

Why should you choose New Orleans Eye Specialists for Medical and surgical eyecare?

Wouldn’t you want to see your doctor’s eye doctor? In Orleans and Jefferson Parish, many of the most prominent internists, optometrists, and primary care physicians choose Drs. Leader, Balkan and Hendricks for the medical and surgical care of their own eyesight. Why? The answer is fellowship training, board certification, experience, advanced technology and personal attention.

A fellowship is an additional year of advanced medical and surgical experience under the guidance of world renowned experts. Most eye doctors do not choose this additional rigorous training. Drs. Leader, Balkan and Hendricks chose to be fellowship trained in different areas which include advanced cataract surgery, muscle and focusing disorders, pediatric ophthalmology, glaucoma, LASIK, corneal disease, dry eyes, macular degeneration and diabetes management. We are the only ophthalmology group in the area where each doctor is fellowship trained. You will be referred to the doctor with the advanced expertise for your personal needs.

Many of the doctors at New Orleans Eye Specialists are fully board certified and has been in practice more than 20 years. They have unsurpassed clinical judgment which is enhanced at both our Metairie and New Orleans offices with the most advanced diagnostic, therapeutic and educational equipment. Technology combined with experience is focused on you from routine exams to the most complicated eye problems.

Fellowship training, experience and technology are important but aren’t helpful if you can’t relate to your doctor. Patients frequently comment on the close personal attention they receive at each visit and in our full service optical shop and contact lens department. The doctors and staff place great emphasis on thorough communication in ordinary, familiar language. They want patients to understand their examination and any eye conditions which require treatment.

You will feel confident with our fellowship training, experience and technology. You will feel welcome because of our close personal attention.
