Our Services

At our Garden City location, we offer a variety of services, including:

  • General Ophthalmology – We provide general eye care for each member of your family. Our doctors encourage patients to schedule regular eye exams, which allows us to carefully assess your eye health. For patients seeking to improve their vision, we offer laser vision correction.
  • Glaucoma Treatment – Abnormally high eye pressure caused by glaucoma can lead to impaired vision if it is left untreated. We offer both surgical and non-surgical glaucoma treatment options to help protect your health and eyesight.
  • Ocular Plastic Surgery – We seek to help our patients achieve renewed self-confidence by addressing structural issues around the eye. Our plastic surgery procedures can improve the appearance of the eye area, which may have changed as a result of trauma or aging.
  • LASIK– Bladeless iLASIK utilizes laser technology to reshape your cornea and provide clearer vision. We use the most advanced technology in a safe, controlled setting to provide our patients with the many benefits of refractive surgery.
  • Cataract Treatment– We offer comprehensive treatment of cataracts, including laser cataract surgery. We can remove a diseased lens and implant an intraocular lens (IOL) to restore your vision in a safe and precise way.
  • Treatment of Corneal Conditions – We offer treatment for various conditions affecting the cornea, ranging from conservative options to a corneal transplant procedure.
  • Audiology Services  –We offer comprehensive audiology services, including audiological evaluations, hearing aid evaluation and selection, and custom earpieces.

For the last three years I have been averaging around one operation every 4 months and worked with a lot of doctors but Dr. Kathleen Van Valkenburg not only checked out well other eye specialists said she is very good for the cataract surgery I had. One day after that surgery I now have 20 - 20 vision a zero pain or problems. She is great!

I mixed up the days of my appt and showed up to the office on a day I wasn't scheduled. I was in pain and they were still able to see me. And on days when I actually have an appt, hey always seem to make an effort to see their patients on-time and keep the waiting to a minimum.

In the past six months I have had six appointments to see my doctor, Dr. "Van". Finding her to help take care of my eyes is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. She always greets me by name with a great smile of welcome. How refreshing in this day and age. She takes meticulous notes and remembers everything from one appointment to the next. She is such a caring doctor but along with that I find her to be the most knowledgeable Ophthalmologist that I have met with over the pat 15 years-----and I have met with many. Dr Van performed cataract surgery for me this past January and it worked beautifully. Contrary to a previous review, I will say that in all of my six visits, I mostly waited five or ten minutes, the longest ever fifteen minutes, and the reception staff is very friendly and accommodating. I'm a happy camper!

I cannot understand these bad reviews...they almost seem like trolls.. I have been seeing Dr. Kathleen Van Valkenburg for  two years. At a regular exam she caught a problem that could potentially cause a total loss of my vision. She referred me to a specialist in this field and my sight was saved. This year she removed a cataract from my eye with the laser method. It was fast, painless and my sight is amazing. The office staff is always friendly, professional and if you have an emergency you can be secure in knowing they will take you right away. I highly recommend  this office and Dr Van V in particular.

Just a quick up date my cataract surgery turned out better than expected and it is wonderful to see clearly. Dr. Van Valkenburg's skills are beyond expectations, so happy with the results.
