At the Ohio Valley Eye Institute, we pride ourselves in providing the highest quality of eye care. It begins with a professional and caring attitude. It involves well-trained, skilled surgeons and support staff to deliver the outcome we both desire, the best visual performance! It means using state-of-the-art equipment to optomize safety which is enhanced by the comfort of a first class facility. Our medical director, Dr. David I. Malitz has been certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology two times and is committed to offering you first class eye care. That is why he continues to be voted “Best of the Best” for the category of LASIK surgeon and facility by you, readers of the Evansville Courier and Press.

We don’t have to tell you how important your eyes are. That’s why we can’t stress enough the importance of choosing the right eye doctor. We urge you to exercise the same care and consideration in choosing your eye care provider as you would when choosing a family doctor. Now, here are just a few of the reasons why you should choose Ohio Valley Eye Institute:

  • Affordability
  • Experience and Expertise (thousands of successful and innovative treatments)
  • Skill and Training
  • Caring Staff
  • Technology
  • Results (among the best in the country)
  • Patient Care
  • Commitment to Education

Our practice has been providing quality eye care since the 1920’s. We are more than just a LASIK center. The practice began vision correction with RK and lens implants and has continued to provide vision correction options including LASIK, PRK, Crystalens, NearVision CK, and ICL technology. Dr. Malitz personally evaluates every patient and our results are among the best in the country. Our laser, the VISX Star S4 with Customvue technology, is the most widely used laser for vision correction and right in our Evansville office. In fact, you can arrange to watch a live procedure! Call the office for times. Your prescription is critically analyzed for accuracy and precision.  We utilize the “Malitz Method” which optomizes the thousands of data points that are analyzed by our doctors and sophisticated equipment.  Our unique method results in a majority of patients achieving 20/20 or better vision and virtually everyone passing their drivers license exam without glasses or contacts.

We have patients from as far away as Germany, Mexico, and the Virgin Islands. We are happy to make arrangements for our out of town patients. We have made arrangements with select hotels that will allow our patients to receive a discount.    Let us know if you will require transportation and our refractive host will gladly arrange this on your behalf.

If you have been told that you are not a candidate for vision correction, you deserve a second opinion with Dr. David Malitz.  If you can see with glasses or contacts there is almost always a procedure that can allow you visual freedom.  In the skilled and talented hands of Dr. Malitz virtually any perscription can be corrected.
