 “I can see again! Thank you doctor for helping me improve my quality of life!”

Those are the words from patients of The Eye Centers of Racine and Kenosha, whose doctors have applied the most innovative treatments and techniques in caring for their patient’s eyes and strive to live by their motto “First in Experience, First in Quality, First in Care.”

Their ophthalmologists, Dr. Kanwar Singh, Dr. I. Paul Singh, Dr. R. Krishna Sanka and optometrist, Dr. Stephen Pruett, have earned national and international reputations as clinicians, educators and researchers. Their experience spans from routine eye care to complex and serious eye cases.

The Eye Centers offer solutions for vision impairments and abnormalities including floaters, glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic eye damage, cataracts, pediatric eye problems, eyelid droop and wrinkles, dry eyes, double vision and laser vision correction (reducing the need for glasses) among others.



Suffering from glaucoma, tired of remembering to use your eyedrops? 
People with glaucoma know how difficult it can be to consistently use their eyedrops to preserve their vision. Advances in technology allow ophthalmologists to provide patients with the opportunity to reduce or even eliminate the need for eyedrops. The Eye Centers are taking the lead with this bybeing the first in Wisconsin to implant the Glaukos iStent® Trabecular Micro-Bypass stent and perform Kahook Dual blade goniotomy to help reduce the need for drops. The Eye Centers of Racine and Kenosha are currently involved in clinical trials for a second generation stent with the hope for an even better chance of reducing drops.

The Eye Centers are currently enrolling patients for studies involving a dissolvable sustained release medication and a novel compound for glaucoma amongst many other studies for glaucoma, dry eye and cataract.

Developed cataracts? 
With the increasing popularity of advanced technology intraocular lenses (IOLs), The Eye Centers cataract surgeons continue to refine the precision of the procedure to maximize visual outcomes and help decrease the dependence on glasses post surgery. The Eye Centers doctors are also trained to use a computer-guided system, allowing for steps of the surgery to now be performed with a laser.

Experiencing eye floaters? 
The Eye Centers are one of a handful of centers in the country performing YAG Vitreolysis, an in office procedure that helps to reduce the symptoms of eye floaters. The Eye Centers were the first in Wisconsin and one of the first in the nation to obtain the laser specifically designed for this procedure. Dr. Paul Singh and Dr. Krishna Sanka have performed more than 1,000 cases in the last 3 years with remarkable improvement in their patient’s quality of life.

Dr. Singh has developed the protocol for this procedure that has become the standard for surgeons performing this procedure around the world. The doctors currently travel the world lecturing and teaching other doctors this new technique for removing eye floaters.
