given day in the office, patients of all ages with the full
spectrum of eye concerns are seen. Glaucoma is a common
eye disease for which huge strides have been made in treatment.
Multiple medications have been replaced by single dosages
for many patients, and laser procedures have been refined
which can delay or even prevent the need for surgery when
is an active practice and we make every effort to be efficient
and still provide the care that each patient requires. Dr.
Hughes attends national meetings all over the country to
stay abreast of current ophthalmologic information and techniques.
“I have had a wonderful professors and mentor surgeons
from the first days of my residency and all through the
past 20 years as I have added new procedures and refined
techniques. I have also enjoyed mentoring other surgeons
as they acquire new skills. My office personnel are outstanding.
They are absolutely committed to our patients and to assisting
me in every way they can so that we can deliver state-of-the-art
eye care. I am committed to my practice and I love what
Our office hours
are 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM Monday, Thursday and Friday. Tuesdays
and Wednesdays are surgery days with half-days for office
appointments. Once you are established as our patient, we
provide 24-hour coverage for ophthalmologic problems. Dr.
Hughes takes her own calls during the week, and is in a
call group of fellow ophthalmic surgeons who trade weekend
maintains active collaboration with all ophthalmic subspecialty
areas making referral when necessary efficiently and timely.
This allows Dr. Hughes to be in solo practice with all of
its advantages and still have the benefits of group practice.
to Dr. Hughes, one of the joys of an ophthalmology practice
is that there is a lifelong relationship with the patients.
People require eye examinations on a regular basis as well
as medical and surgical intervention. "My goal is top
provide the highest level of ophthalmologic care to each
of my patients, from those needing routine care to each
of my patients, from those needing routine care to those
requiring complex medical and surgical ophthalmologic expertise.
We strive to accomplish this in a private practice setting
that retains a traditional philosophy of individualized
care and personal attention." We are pleased to have
you in our practice."
