MARTINSVILLE – People who need cataract surgery done no longer have to travel hours away thanks to the opening of an eye surgery center in Martinsville.
The Martinsville Center for Sight invested over $1 million in remodeling and equipping the new facility located at 433 Commonwealth Boulevard East.
"No longer will patients have to travel to Roanoke, Lynchburg or Greensboro for their cataract surgery procedure,” said Dr. Chad Albright. “I have been able to help thousands of patients in Martinsville, but they all have had to travel for surgery. Now there is a dedicated surgery center in Martinsville where patients can remain local and still have the same quality of care that is provided in Roanoke."
The center can perform up to 30 surgeries a day.
Martinsville Center for Sight is owned and managed by Roanoke Valley Center for Sight.
