Technology

Leading edge technology is a hallmark of Willis-Knighton and is evident at our eye surgery locations. Many exciting advancements in eye surgery were first introduced in our community at Willis-Knighton which opened the region’s first outpatient eye surgery center  in the 1970s. The legacy of quality eye care continues today as we remain one of the busiest eye surgery programs in the region.
