GlaucomaDr. Jonathan F. Wise, a native of New Rochelle, New York has been practicing ophthalmology in Hollywood, Florida since completing his residency at the prestigious New York Eye and Ear Infirmary in 1979. He provides comprehensive medical and surgical treatment for a wide variety of eye conditions including glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, eyelid and tearing disorders and macular degeneration. Subspecialty interests include refractive surgery, corneal transplantation and small incision, no stitch cataract extraction.
OphthalmologyDr. Wise is board certified in ophthalmology with fellowships in the American College of Surgeons, and the American Academy of Ophthalmology. He is a member of numerous medical societies including the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, the International Society of Refractive Surgery and the American Medical Association. He has served as Chairman of the Department of Ophthalmology at both Memorial Regional Hospital and Memorial Regional South Hospital. He is honored with a listing in the Florida edition of the Castle Connolly Guide as one of the best doctors in the state. Dr. Wise and his staff are committed to exceeding your expectations.
Laser Eye SurgeryDr. Wise has been performing refractive surgery since the early 1990’s, initially employing radial keratotomy (RK) and over the last two decades photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) and Laser assisted in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK). He has extensive training and experience in LASER VISION CORRECTION for the treatment of myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. Dr. Wise specializes in advanced Custom Vue LASIK. An individual blueprint of one’s unique refractive error is obtained by computer and this information is programmed into the EXCIMER LASER. This technique results in a truly customized result.
CataractsDr. Wise has performed thousands of small incision, no stitch cataract extractions. Most patients undergo this procedure with anesthesia provided by medication applied to the surface of the eye. This is in contrast to older techniques requiring an injection behind the eye with potential for bleeding and other complications. Therefore, it is not necessary to discontinue life saving blood thinners including Coumadin, Plavix, and Aspirin prior to cataract surgery. Dr. Wise is an expert in new lens implant technology (including Acrysof RESTOR, and Acrysof Toric) which has the potential of eliminating or reducing one’s dependence on glasses postoperatively for distance and near tasks. Dr.Wise is one of the first doctors in the area to employ the LenSx laser, the newest advancement in cataract surgery known as "bladeless" cataract surgery.A portion of the procedure previously performed by hand can now be facilitated with FEMTOSECOND LASER technology. Let Dr. Wise and his staff customize the best cataract surgical procedure for your individual needs.
