A Reputation for Excellence
Specializing in Laser Cataract Surgery
From the day our office opened, our primary goal has been to provide each individual with the best eye care possible.
Dr. Parent has been selected by his peers as one of the “Best Doctors in America” and is listed as one of “America’s Top Ophthalmologists”. He is the first eye surgeon in northeast Indiana to perform Custom LASIK, RLE (Refractive Lens Exchange), RELACS (Refractive Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery) and implant multifocal intraocular implants (IOLs) with these elite credentials.
The new multifocal IOLs offer the possibility of seeing well at more than one distance, without glasses. In fact, the majority of patients do not need glasses after the procedure. Dr. Parent was one of eleven ophthalmologists in the United States (out of 17,500 ophthalmologists) who participated in the national study leading to FDA approval for the first multifocal IOL and the first surgeon in the Midwest to implant a multifocal IOL.
Our associated surgical center, The Eye Surgical Center of Fort Wayne, is the first surgical center in the area devoted exclusively to eye care. J. Rex Parent, M.D. and Padma Ponugoti, M.D. are board-certified ophthalmologists specializing in cataract surgery in Fort Wayne, Indiana and Northeast Indiana. We would be happy to schedule a comprehensive exam, as providing the best patient care is of extreme importance to our practice.
