Care Philosophy

At Advanced Ophthalmology of Michiana we offer comprehensive eye care for the whole family.  Our doctors and staff strive to offer sophisticated and compassionate care to all of our patients.

Office Philosophy

We treat our patients as we ourselves would like to be treated. Waiting times are minimized and we take same-day emergencies.  We take time to explain your eye condition and are always available for questions.


August 2, 2020

Dr. Elias will be leaving our practice and his last day will be September 17, 2020.  We will no longer be offering vision therapy or low vision exams due to his departure.  Dr. Avena will be available to see any patients needing a contact lens or routine eye exam.  


Due to the coronavirus pandemic there will be changes to keep everyone safe:

  • All patients and visitors will be required to wear a mask.

  • We ask that only the patient enter the office if possible.

  • All patients will be screened in the hallway for any symptoms of coronavirus, and if you  have any we may need to reschedule your appointment if it is not an eye emergency.

  • We will be sanitizing and disinfecting our office and exam rooms frequently to best prevent spread of the coronavirus.
