Phillips Eye Institute

Your Age Should Be Your Little Secret

Since 2009 Dr. Carlson and the Claris Eye Care & Surgery team have been treating eye health and eye surgery patients from their office next to the renowned Phillips Eye Institute.

In 2013, Claris moved into a larger office adding extra exam and procedure rooms enabling us to attend to more clients quickly and efficiently. Even though we’ve expanded and have an amazing ophthalmic center, all surgeries are performed at the Phillips Eye Institute. Why is this? Because here at Claris, part of our mission is to also offer the best customer service and patient care. By being near the Phillips Eye Institute, Claris is able to uphold that commitment: patients receive the personal care of a smaller, community doctor’s office but with the benefits and access of a large medical center.


At the Phillips Eye Institute, Dr. Carlson has access to a facility with the latest in medical technology for vision care. This includes state-of-the-art laser eye surgery and vision correction technology.

Here the Claris team performs laser eye surgery for conditions such as:
