Expanded University Eye Surgeons office opens at East Hills location May 15


HUNTINGTON, W.Va. -- University Eye Surgeons of Marshall University's Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine is expanding and moving to the East Hills Professional Center May 15.

Located at 5187 U.S. Route 60 East, just east of the 29th Street Exit of Interstate 64 (Exit 15), the new 10,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility will include a laser center and a surgical suite.

University Eye Surgeons serves patients throughout southern West Virginia. Its special services include using premium intraocular lenses for cataract surgery. These lenses correct astigmatism and both distance and near vision, and they can eliminate the need for glasses after cataract surgery. The group also has the only Pentacam corneal scanner in southern West Virginia. This $60,000 device uses a rotating camera to create a 3-D image of the cornea so that surgeons have the most precise details available when performing cataract or refractive surgery.

Dr. Parveen Nagra, a fellowship-trained corneal specialist who was trained at Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia, will be joining the staff in June. Her areas of focus will be corneal transplants, external disease, cataract and refractive surgery. She will be joining Dr. Charles Francis, whose focus includes comprehensive ophthalmology and refractive surgery; Dr. Michael Krasnow, a fellowship-trained glaucoma specialist whose focus includes glaucoma and cataract surgery, and Belinda Russell, O.D., whose focus includes pediatric and adult eye care.

The phone number for the new location will be 304-691-8800.
