Our cardiologists diagnose and treat heart diseases, such as coronary artery disease, valvular disease and rhythm disorders. Complex cases are referred to Cleveland Clinic's Heart Center, ranked No. 1 in heart care in U.S. News & World Report’s annual survey of “America’s Best Hospitals.”

Patients also can access routine eye care. A pediatric ophthalmologist is on staff to address the unique needs of young patients. We also provide optometry and contact lens service.

Lakeland Eye

Lakeland Eye Surgeons’ optometry services are offered at their Oberlin and Avon Lake offices. Here children and adults can have routine eye care, complete vision testing and refractive services (to determine the amount of vision correction you need). Complete contact lens services and a large optical dispensary offers many frames. Should any serious problems be detected during your exam, optometrists can refer you quickly to Lakeland Eye ophthalmologists. Lorain and Elyria offices also offer vision testing and refractive services.

Cleveland Clinic Elyria now offers a Low Vision Assessment and Rehabilitation program, in addition to the low vision services offered on Cleveland Clinic's main campus. Low vision means that even with regular glasses, contact lenses, medicine or surgery, people find everyday tasks difficult to do. A low vision specialist performs a careful evaluation of the functional problems the patient is experiencing. Low vision devices are demonstrated to determine which will help patients meet their vision goals. For a low vision appointment at Cleveland Clinic Elyria call 440.366.9444.
