Due to the COVID-19 virus, we understand that patients are limiting their time in public places. However, we stay open for urgent and emergency care.

On Monday, March 23, a 15-year-old patient came to the office for care. The patient had eye pain, loss of vision. The emergency room referred the patient for care, since they could not provide care.

The patient had a corneal infection. The patient was blind in that eye. This patient could not see any letters on the eye chart, only colors. With prompt care, the patient regained her vision to 20/40. Every follow-up visit I walk in and this patient has a smile and is glad to see me.

That’s why we stay open. We are here to ease the burden on the overly burdened Emergency Rooms, to make sure our glaucoma patients are not losing vision, to make sure our diabetic patients are not bleeding in their retina, and or our macular degeneration patients do not go blind.

This is what we always mean by Better Vision through Better Care.

Thank you,
Ayman Boutros, MD

OFFICE HOURS: Updated (April 3, 2020)

The Eye Center is remaining open for our patients, but starting April 6, 2020 we have temporarily reduced our office hours. Below are the new hours for each office. We are here for you! Please contact us if any questions. Thank you.


Since 1989 The Eye Center has been on the forefront of vision correction procedures. Dr. Boutros and The Eye Center are two names that have come to define a standard of excellence in vision correction, performing thousands of iLASIK procedures.

Dr. Boutros has spent the last 30 years refining the vision correction process. When you have iLASIK at The Eye Center, your treatment is based on specific measurements that are taken during your extensive, dilated, pre-operative examination. iLASIK introduces a new level of accuracy to the vision correction procedure.

Many patients spend a great deal of energy and time learning about the technology in various items, such as computers, appliances, televisions, etc. But when it comes to their eyes, they don’t take the time. Here we provide detailed information on why iLASIK (All laser LASIK with Custom Vue) is, in our opinion, the best possible vision correction treatment available today. It is the only procedure approved for Naval aviators and NASA astronauts. This is your first step to learn about iLASIK and why everything else is LASIK.

iLASIK combines the safety of Intralase with the precision of Advanced CustomVue and the experience of Dr. Boutros. iLASIK employs all-laser LASIK technology with the Advanced CustomVue™ technology. Your first step is to learn BASIC LASIK and then learn why iLASIK is different. Read more
