Our Services

Dry Eyes

Our eyes need tears to stay healthy and comfortable. If your eyes do not produce enough tears, it is called dry eye.

Diabetic Eye Disease

People with diabetes can have an eye disease called diabetic retinopathy. This is when high blood sugar levels cause damage to blood vessels in the retina.


Glaucoma is a disease that damages your eye’s optic nerve. It usually happens when fluid builds up in the front part of your eye. That extra fluid increases the pressure in your eye, damaging the optic nerve.

Macular Degeneration

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a problem with your retina. It happens when a part of the retina called the macula is damaged.

Conjuctivitis (Pink Eye)

Conjunctivitis is often called “pink eye.” It happens when the conjunctiva is irritated by an infection or allergies.


Eye allergies, also called allergic conjunctivitis, are quite common. They occur when the eyes react to something that irritates them


If you have a cataract, your lens has become cloudy. It is like looking through a foggy or dusty car windshield. Things look blurry, hazy or less colorful with a cataract.

Flashes, Floaters, Vitreous Detachment

Floaters look like small specks, dots, circles, lines or cobwebs in your field of vision. While they seem to be in front of your eye, they are floating inside.

Dr. Lauren Zimski is dedicated to providing high quality, comprehensive eye care including, routine eye examinations, glasses and contact lens prescriptions, the diagnosis and treatment of medical eye conditions, and a wide range of eye surgery. She also personally administers Botox and dermal fillers.

Why visit an Ophthalmologist?

An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor that specializes in the medical and surgical treatment of conditions that affect the eye. An ophthalmologist has the highest level of education and training of all eye care specialists making them uniquely qualified to treat eye conditions. As a board-certified ophthalmologist, Dr. Zimski is able to diagnose all conditions affecting the eye, and make referrals to other specialists when needed.

Dr. Lauren Zimski

Dr. Lauren Zimski is a board-certified  Ophthalmologist specializing in the medical and surgical treatment of eye conditions. Our office is unique in that we offer very personalized eye care, and the eye doctor performs the entire eye exam rather than using technicians to do most of the work.

It is our goal to make sure you understand your care and all of your treatment options. We believe that it is essential to educate our patients so that we can make treatment decisions together that are ultimately the best for you. Whether you simply  need options as the best way to improve your reading vision to suite your lifestyle to managing complex medical diseases of the eye, we feel that this is the best approach to providing high-quality, personalized care.
