Ophthalmology Surgery

Cape Cod Healthcare brings the best in surgical eye care to the Cape through ophthalmologists admitting to both Falmouth Hospital and Cape Cod Hospital. Using the most advanced diagnostic and surgical techniques available, our ophthalmologists treat the most common eye needs on the Cape: glaucoma, cataracts and eye trauma. They are also well trained in treating most eye diseases, using medical lasers for diabetic eye disease and performing eyelid surgeries to treat conditions like ectropion and entropion.

“We are all board-certified, offering up-to-date knowledge, training and techniques right here on the Cape,” said Eugene Ciccarelli, M.D., board-certified surgeon. “We do small incision and foldable intraocular implants for cataracts.”

Immensely powerful lasers are used for many surgeries, and computer-driven instruments, such as the phacoemulsifier that breaks up cataracts, help deliver state-of-the-art care.

“We’re constantly improving our abilities,” added Michael Oats, M.D., board-certified surgeon. “For example, I’ve begun performing a new procedure called conductive keratoplasty for presbyopia to reduce or eliminate the need for reading glasses.”

Technology has advanced to the point where most eye surgery is done on an outpatient basis, while still offering advantages of the hospital setting with a team of nurses, anesthesiologists and technicians specially trained in ophthalmology surgery who work together on a regular basis.
