About Us

The Ophthalmology Center is focused on individualized patient care. Our office is revolutionizing ocular disease diagnosis and treatment and is currently the only practice in the commonwealth of Virginia to offer Lipiflow dry eye treatment and has been recognized as a certified dry eye treatment center. Dr. Kerner is a board certified ophthalmologist that has extensive experience in every aspect of eye care including the medical and surgical treatment of cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetes and dry eye.

With two convenient locations in Norfolk and Virginia Beach it is easy to get an appointment. You will have time to discuss concerns in a relaxed setting and get to know our doctors as we get to know you. Patients and fellow physicians trust their eyes to us because of our solid reputation and unparalleled patient care. Make an appointment and enjoy the personal experience that sets us apart from other eye care centers.

We have dedicated and qualified staff members who assist with diagnostics for diagnosing and treating patients.

The Ophthalmology Center is also a Certified Dry Eye Center with an onsite tearlab for diagnosing and treating dry eye disease. We also perform minor surgical procedures, injections and laser treatments for glaucoma and secondary cataracts. Dr. Kerner works closely with the Eastern Virginia Medical School Residents Clinic at the Lions Eye Clinic at Sentara Norfolk General for those who are uninsured and cannot afford ophthalmic examinations.
