Featured Specialties

Shreveport Eye Specialists - LASIK


LASIK (Laser in-Situ- Keratomileusis) is a specialized technique that reshapes the surface of the cornea with an excimer laser, rapidly correcting vision problems. LASIK is outpatient surgery performed in Dr. Russ Van Norman’s outpatient LASIK surgery clinic lasting ten to fifteen minutes.


Shreveport Eye Specialists - LASIK


Glaucoma is a medical disease that affects the eye. It can occur after fluid builds up in the front part of the cornea. The pressure in the eye caused by this fluid buildup is what leads to damage to the optic nerve. Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in people over 60 years old.


Shreveport Eye Specialists - LASIK


Cataracts start small, and initially they may only have a small effect on your vision. Things may seem a little blurry — like looking at a kaleidoscope or as if you were in an impressionist painting. The world may seem cloudy, blurry, or dim increasing over time until visual assistance is needed.


Meet Iris Shreveport's Newest Landmark

Shreveport’s beloved new landmark, Iris, was designed and brought to life by Susanna Van Norman and artist Bruce Allen, of Bruce Allen Art and Design.

If you’re driving down Line Avenue on any given day this sight will certainly leave an impression, as the enormous ocular organ stands nearly 8 feet across! She was welcomed to her home at Shreveport Eye Specialists on February 19, 2019 and quickly became the talk of the town.
