Welcome to Shady Grove Ophthalmology!

At Shady Grove Ophthalmology, our goal is to give every patient the VERY BEST solution to their vision problems. And sometimes, that’s not LASIK.

That’s why our incredible surgeons are able to provide RLE – a life-changing vision-correction procedure for people who don’t qualify for LASIK.

"It is now one week since my cataract surgery with Dr. Roberts, and I'd like to share the high opinion in which I hold him and his entire staff. My surgery went well and my vision has improved rapidly and without incident. His office is efficient and visits there proceed like clock work. His surgical team is likewise very informative and professional. Sometime, in the not too distant future, I'm sure I will be requiring the same procedure for my other eye and I will for certain choose his professional services once again."

"I had cataract surgery 2 days ago. Dr. Roberts and the entire staff are A#1 from start to finish. Dr. Roberts is extremely patient and caring and thoroughly explains ALL the details before, during and after surgery. Amazing to have sight restored with NO issues. The world is brighter now due to Dr. Roberts. The operation was seemless with NO discomfort at all. I’m thinking about growing a third eye just so I can have surgery again!!! Dr.Anthony Roberts IS the Go-To surgeon!"

Alex H

"I visited two other ophthalmologists before entrusting my cataract problem to Dr. Anthony Roberts. I selected him, because he was willing to discuss my condition with me, rather than talking at me. The procedure was surprisingly uneventful. My trust was richly rewarded with 20/20 vision, full color, and brightness in an eye that had been basically useless. The staff was very helpful and pleasant as well."



RLE is a great option for people suffering from DLS (Dysfunctional Lens Syndrome) or early cataracts, the result of a natural aging process that reduces visual clarity and focusing power and makes it harder to read up close or in low light situations.

The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for RLE is to get a free consultation appointment. However, you should also review the specific characteristics that influence whether or not a person is likely to be a viable candidate.

What is a Refractive Lens Exchange?

As we age, the lenses in our eyes become harder and less flexible – lessening our ability to focus on things up close. Cue: reading glasses.

If you don’t want to be constrained to wearing glasses for the rest of your life, RLE can replace your natural lens with a new artificial intra-optical lens (IOL) – allowing you to regain your up-close focusing abilities.

So you can toss your reading glasses forever!
