The Eye Surgery Center of Hawaii
The Eye Surgery Center of Hawaii features state of the art facilities created specifically for eye surgery and has the capacity to potentially provide up to approximately 9,000 surgeries a year. Our out-patient surgery center is designed for maximum quality and efficiency, ensuring our patient’s comfort and convenience.
Our center is less costly than a hospital, while maintaining a higher level of care for the eye patient. Hospitals generalize rather than specialize and as such are not ideal to serve the unique needs of eye surgery. At the Eye Surgery Center of Hawaii, all surgeons and support staff specialize in eye surgery. Unlike hospitals that treat contagious diseases, our surgery center does not, which enables us to offer a safer, more hygienic environment for your procedure.
Our ASC is conveniently located right next door to our facility, EyeSight Hawaii. While you are at the center, your family member or friend who will be driving you can shop or dine at one of the many nearby stores and eateries.
The Eye Surgery Center of Hawaii was established in 2011 by Dr Olkowski in partnership with leading ophthalmic surgeons, with the goal of creating the largest single specialty eye surgery center in Hawaii.
