Eye Care

Ophthalmology Services at Gunnison Valley Health.

We provide comprehensive eye care to patients of all ages. Our Ophthalmologists are medical doctors who can diagnose, treat and perform surgical procedures on a range of eye related conditions including:

  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Dry eye
  • Glaucoma
  • Diabetic eye disease
  • Macular degeneration
  • Cataracts

Our doctors can even diagnose eye melanoma and brain tumors before they become an issue.

Regular medical eye exams are an invaluable in maintaining your eyes’ health by detecting and preventing disease. Some diseases develop slowly without causing pain or vision loss. Early detection of any problems can reduce the risk of further harm and allow for a choice of treatment options.

What we're doing to keep you safe:

  • Symptom Screening: All individuals who enter the South entrance of the hospital will be screened for symptoms, must wear a mask, sanitize their hands and temperature is taken.
  • Infection Control: After each patient visit, the exam room and all of the equipment is thoroughly cleaned.
  • Patient Scheduling: One-on-one patient scheduling to ensure each patients exam is completely finished before a new exam begins.
  • Protection: Personal protective equipment (PPE) is worn by Dr. Leslie Moskowitz-Elfenbein and our healthcare staff to ensure you are protected.
