Marwa A. Adi, MD, FACS; Neil F. Martin, MD, FACS; Howard S. Weiss, MD, MPH, FACS; and Roy S. Rubinfeld, MD, are highly skilled ophthalmologists who specialize in advanced cataract surgery. They were among the first surgeons in the Washington, D.C., area to perform no-stitch, no-injection cataract surgery with premium intraocular lenses. As a testament to their surgical expertise, these surgeons have been featured in a variety of media outlets, including The Today Show, The Washington Post, Washingtonian, Newsweek, CNN Headline News, USA Today, Consumers Digest, Vogue, as well as on ABC Evening News, Good Morning America, and NBC Channel 4 News. Dr. Adi, Dr. Martin, Dr. Rubinfeld and Dr. Weiss, along with other surgeons at Washington Eye Physicians and Surgeons, were also named among the "Best Doctors in Washington" by Washingtonian magazine.
The surgeons of Washington Eye Physicians and Surgeons generally begin cataract surgery by using a micro, no-stitch technique, through which they carefully remove the clouded lens. Then, they replace the natural lens with an advanced, high quality intraocular lens implant (IOL). They offer several advanced, premium lenses which can correct for distance and near vision, including Crystalens, AcrySof ReSTOR and ReZoom. Crystalens is a focussing (or accommodating) IOL that improves a patient's ability to change focus from near to distance objects; AcrySof ReSTOR and ReZoom are multifocal IOLs that correct both nearsightedness and farsightedness. They also offer a variety of lens implants to correct astigmatism and reduce or eliminate the need for eye glasses.
Washington Eye Physicians and Surgeons have been featured in numerous media venues around the globe and have been providing quality and individualized vision care services to patients from over 90 countries for more than 55 years.
In addition, patients can receive Visian implantable collamer lenses (ICL) at Washington Eye Physicians and Surgeons. This procedure helps patients who do not qualify for LASIK due to their high degree of myopia achieve clearer vision and reduce or eliminate their dependence on eye glasses or contact lenses.
