President Trump is scheduled to be in Philadelphia on Tuesday, September 15, 2020 at The National Constitution Center (NCC) in the Independence Mall area. Increased police presence is anticipated in Center City throughout Tuesday afternoon and evening. Please allow extra time if you are going to Wills Eye. Please be advised of area street closures to vehicles beginning at 1:00PM on Tuesday 9/15. Pedestrian access will also be limited in the area. This is subject to change and area restrictions, which could widen, will be lifted once the President departs the NCC. There are also demonstrations planned for Tuesday 9/15 around Independence Mall as well as City Avenue.

Refractive Surgery

Refractive surgery is a short, painless procedure that reduces or eliminates the need for glasses and contacts to correct nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism. At Wills Eye Hospital, we offer many forms of refractive surgery, including custom laser vision correction (LASIK and PRK), implantable collamer lens surgery, and refractive lens exchange.

Treatment options are carefully tailored to the needs and lifestyle of each individual patient. Your Wills Eye refractive surgery experience includes a pre-procedure visit and thorough examination, the procedure itself, and follow-up care, all performed by a Wills Eye board-certified ophthalmologist, to ensure the best possible results.
