New Eye Care Practice Opens in Las Vegas

Not many years ago some patients from Las Vegas would leave the city for healthcare requiring specialty services. In many cases people did not trust the care they were getting from our local doctors. Fortunately, this has changed as the number and quality of specialists in the Las Vegas area has increased. High quality care is now readily available, and this is true now more than ever with the opening of NV Eye Surgery, the new practice of Dr. Peter W. DeBry, M.D.

Dr. DeBry is a fellowship-trained glaucoma specialist and cataract surgeon in practice here in Las Vegas for more than 10 years. Last month marked a milestone in his career with the opening of his first solo practice. Dr. DeBry shared some of his ideas on why eye surgery requires such a high commitment to excellence and quality standards.

“Eye surgery is one of the most precise procedures performed.”

“Eye surgery is one of the most precise procedures performed. I often share with my employees and patients the reason why expectations are so high with eye surgery – vision is so precious no one wants to be the one to have a complication. A bank is a good analogy. What if your bank advertised a success rate of 98%? Most of us would not sign up to have even 2% of our money lost; we expect an accuracy of 99.99% from our banking transactions. With eye surgery, patients also want 99.99% success and that is what we try to provide with every patient and every surgery!”

Dr. DeBry has fellowship training from the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, routinely acknowledged by U.S. News and World Report as the top place for eye care in the country.

“Working personally with six of the world’s most notable ophthalmologists on a daily basis was one of the most amazing experiences of my training”, Dr. DeBry said. “We saw and treated patients with many complex eye conditions referred from across the US, South and Central America, and the Caribbean. These experiences have helped me to be able to create a center of excellence for eye care here in Las Vegas.”

Dr. DeBry’s office is now accepting new patients and takes care of many eye conditions including cataract, glaucoma, dry eye, diabetic eye exams, and cornea transplant procedures. You are invited to call to make an appointment at 702-825-2085.
