SSRH announces Northwest Health Eye Clinic
Name changed and new location
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.
