Delaware's Top Eye Care Center

Trusted for Over 30 Years

Founded over 30 years ago, Eye Physicians and Surgeons, P.A., is a trusted eye care center in Wilmington, DE. Our ophthalmologists, optometrists, and opticians work together to offer a wide range of services, from routine eye exams and corrective eyewear to advanced services for cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic eye disease, and more.

Over the last three decades, we have remained at the forefront of innovation in optometry and ophthalmology. For example, our ophthalmologists were the first in Delaware to perform laser-assisted cataract surgery, and our surgery center is the most advanced in the state.

Our experienced team focuses on creating a warm, friendly environment. When you visit us for an appointment, you can expect to receive courteous, highly professional care. Our optometrists and ophthalmologists are available around the clock for emergencies, and we can schedule your appointment at night or on the weekend.

State-of-the-Art  Surgery Center

Our ophthalmic surgery center in Wilmington, DE, is one of the newest facilities of its kind in the state. It features the WaveLight® Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q excimer laser, which our ophthalmologists use to perform PRK and other laser surgeries with extreme precision.

Our surgery center is also home to Haag-Streit Lenstar LS900® technology and an Alcon® LenSx® laser, which our optometrists and ophthalmologists use to plan and execute cataract surgery.

Insurance and Financing

We want all families in Wilmington, DE, to enjoy excellent eye health and perfect vision, so we make paying for our services as easy and convenient as possible. We accept most major medical and routine vision insurance plans. We can help you make sense of your insurance policy to ensure that you access every available benefit.

In addition to insurance, we accept all major credit cards and offer financing through CareCredit®. CareCredit allows qualifying patients to pay for visits to the optician, optometrist, or ophthalmologist through low-interest or no-interest monthly payment plans.

Achieve 20/20 Vision with PRK

Dr. Minkovitz performs photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) out of our cutting-edge surgery center in Wilmington, DE. PRK is a refractive surgery that uses a laser to reshape the cornea, correcting nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. Dr. Minkovitz recommends PRK over LASIK because it does not involve the creation of a corneal flap, making it safer for your eye, and because more patients can qualify for PRK.

Advanced Treatment for Macular Degeneration

Macular degeneration is an eye condition in which the macula, which is responsible for your straight-ahead vision, slowly deteriorates over time. Macular degeneration is most prevalent in patients over 65. While there is no cure for macular degeneration, the advanced treatments available from our optometrists and ophthalmologists can slow the progression of the condition.

We offer multiple treatments for macular degeneration, including thermal laser photocoagulation, photodynamic therapy, and injections.

Dr. Minkivitz transformed my life by creating my best most outstanding vision ever. Suddenly I'm not getting lost on the streets--because now I can SEE to read street signs clearly, even at great distance. As a result, this area has finally come into perspective...

The services, ranging from staff, technicians, physicians' assistants, and physicians, were of very high quality. The services provided were better than those of any other eye physicians I have experienced. I would recommend Eye Physicians and Surgeons, without qualification, to anyone.
