Looking for Laser Eye Surgery in CT?

Your eyes are equipped with a natural lens that provides nearly one-third of the eye’s total optical power. While some people never experience any issues with their natural lens, other people might experience clouding of the lens in their eye -- this is called a cataract.

Living with cataracts can be difficult for many. Not only does it result in blurred vision, but individuals living with cataracts experience cloudy vision, glares, halos, color changes, double-vision, and changes in perception. While glasses provide temporary relief in some cases, the cataracts often worsen over time.

That’s where Coastal Eye Surgeons is dedicated to bringing some light to your situation. We not only offer the most high-tech laser cataract surgery CT has to offer, but we provide a boutique and trendy environment for a more comfortable experience. We’re proud to be one of Connecticut’s finest Ophthalmology offices and can’t wait to welcome you to our family!

Services We Provide

While we specialize in laser cataract surgery, Coastal Eye Surgeons offers a wide range of eye care services to the Connecticut community. We take the time to understand each patient and use the latest technology to ensure the best practices and techniques are being used. Here’s a closer look at the various services we provide to wonderful Connecticut residents, just like you!

Laser Floater Removal

Also known as laser vitreolysis, laser floater removal (LFR, for short) uses a highly-advanced laser to remove the buildup of vitreous that surrounds the eye.


Individuals living with glaucoma have a damaged nerve that connects the eye to the brain. If you’re looking for a licensed glaucoma specialist in CT, you’ve come to the right place.

Dry Eyes

Dry eyes aren’t just uncomfortable, they’re extremely harmful too! At Coastal Eye Surgeons, we target the underlying cause of dry eyes and formulate a treatment plan to restore moisture in the eye.

Diabetic Retinopathy

Using high-tech laser surgery and injectable medication, Dr. Shakir and his wonderful team are prepared to treat any eye complication caused by diabetes, including diabetic retinopathy.

Macular Degeneration

As we grow older, the small central part of the retina (macula) starts to wear down. While this can cause major disruptions to an individual’s vision, we can help slow the disease and preserve your vision.

Comprehensive Eye Exams

A comprehensive eye exam is necessary to ensure proper eye health and catch eye diseases in their early stages. We also check refractions, prescriptions, and eye pressure.
