Name changed and new lo­ca­tion

Westside Eagle-Observer - - NEWS - Siloam Springs Re­gional Hos­pi­tal

North­west Health Eye Clinic – for­merly Legacy Eye Cen­ter – re­cently opened in a newly ren­o­vated and ex­panded of­fice space. The clinic re­mains in the same build­ing at 500 South Mount Olive Street, but is now in Suite 100 and con­ve­niently lo­cated at the front en­trance. Chang­ing the name clar­i­fies the af­fil­i­a­tion with the North­west Health net­work, and the new lo­ca­tion en­hances abil­ity to ac­cess more ad­vanced ser­vices.

Every­one is in­vited to the clinic’s rib­bon cut­ting and open house at 10 a.m., Oct. 29, at the new lo­ca­tion. Guests can pre­view the new suite and learn more about North­west Health Eye Clinic and its ser­vices.

“Our new clinic is de­signed with pa­tients in mind as we work to sus­tain and im­prove their vi­sion us­ing ad­vanced di­ag­nos­tic and ther­a­peu­tic equip­ment,” said John A. Billings­ley III, M.D., FAAO. “The Siloam Springs lo­ca­tion al­lows shorter travel times from sur­round­ing ar­eas in North­east Ok­la­homa and North­west Arkansas. And our name change to North­west Health Eye Clinic sets the stage for ex­pand­ing ser­vices to other lo­ca­tions and adding op­to­met­ric and op­ti­cal ser­vices in the fu­ture.”

The larger suite pro­vides plenty of space for staff and pa­tients while cre­at­ing a wel­com­ing en­vi­ron­ment for pa­tients to feel com­fort­able in an up­dated set­ting.

The suite also al­lows Dr. Billings­ley and his staff to have more room for the tech­nol­ogy needed to per­form in-of­fice pro­ce­dures. Dr. Billings­ley also has an eye surgery suite at Siloam Springs Re­gional Hos­pi­tal for surg­eries re­quir­ing anes­the­sia.

North­west Health Eye Clinic of­fers ser­vices such as cataract surgery, mac­u­lar de­gen­er­a­tion treat­ment in­clud­ing in­jec­tions, di­a­betic retinopa­thy laser treat­ment in­clud­ing in­jec­tions, glau­coma man­age­ment and surgery, dry eye treat­ment, eye­lid surgery, eye in­juries, com­pre­hen­sive eye ex­am­i­na­tions, eye­lid clean­ing pro­ce­dures for dry eye and ble­phar­i­tis, and fa­cial re­ju­ve­na­tion ser­vices.
