Our patients who desire to decrease their dependence on eye glasses can benefit from the latest advances in refractive surgery. Dr. LaGreca performs LASIK, PRK and PTK. Dr. LaGreca has been practicing refractive surgery in Billings since 1992. In addition, he is the only surgeon in Billings to offer Verisyse™ lenses for patients who have been told that they are not candidates for LASIK because their corneas are too thin.
For our patients with corneal disease, The Eye Clinic/ Surgicenter offer consultations for corneal transplant surgery.
For our patients with severe visual loss from all forms of eye disease, we offer Low Vision evaluations and treatment with state of the art Low Vision Aid devices, such as the Pocket Viewer™ portable magnifier. Ask to schedule a low vision evaluation with Suzanne Erpenbach, COT.

As if 6/30/08, we have a new computer system designed to help us better serve your needs. As you come in for the first time you will be asked to bring in a picture ID and all insurance cards so we can scan them into your account to keep for future visits. In the transition period, you may receive two statements, one from the old system and one from the new system. If you have any questions regarding your statement(s) please contact our billing department and they’d be happy to assist you. We have also started accepting Care Credit as a payment option for you along with the traditional Cash, Check, Visa, Master Card, Discover, and American Express.
