When Center For Sight medical director, Dr. Eva Liang, decided to open her own ophthalmology practice, the choice of Las Vegas was a natural one.
“This is my home town. I went to grade school, high school and my clinical sciences for medical school here. After working in other cities, I think it was the right time for me to come back to Las Vegas and put the sum of my experience together here,” said Dr. Liang.
The daughter of immigrants from Taiwan, Dr. Liang was imbued with an entrepreneurial spirit from an early age.
“My father ran an import-export business that required him to travel to Asia routinely. Growing up, I learned a lot about working smart and the importance of customer service,” she said.
Early in her medical career, Dr. Liang was an employed physician, first in a private practice, followed by a couple of managed care groups. While these settings enabled her to refine her skills as a board-certified ophthalmologist and refractive surgeon, it also frustrated her goal of promoting a culture of service.
“I quickly discovered that introducing change—achieving the best patient experience possible—is nearly impossible within a large organization that was already firmly established,” said Dr. Liang.
With innovation in mind, Dr. Liang teamed up with her husband, healthcare executive Anthony Ausband, to build her own practice, and in 2013, she opened Center For Sight, in Las Vegas and Henderson. From the outset, she trained her vision on building an eye care practice that would deliver what she calls, “20/Happy” results.
“While not every patient can achieve 20/20 vision, they can achieve their own best vision, and that’s what we call 20/Happy,” Dr. Liang said.
Center For Sight offers the most comprehensive, advanced eye care solutions available in Southern Nevada, including the latest micro-invasive glaucoma surgery options, which can be performed with or without cataract surgery.
Among the most frequently performed procedures at Center For Sight are intraocular lens implantation, often with laser cataract surgery; eye lid surgery; treatments for dry eye; and refractive surgery, for near-vision and distant-vision correction. Corneal inlay procedures to correct near vision are a significant area of growth for the practice.
Led by Dr. Liang’s unwavering commitment to patient care and service, this fall, Center For Sight will be opening its fourth location, where well-developed care systems and the most advanced technologies in ophthalmic care will be featured.
The upscale Tivoli Village location incorporates hospitality elements not typically associated with medical offices. Patients can stroll the outdoor pedestrian mall and shop or visit a café—while waiting for the effects of pupil dilation to subside. It also offers underground parking with an elevator to the practice entrance.
“What we learn at Tivoli Village will be used to further improve the service environment, throughout our organization. At Center For Sight, we recognize that as people live longer and have better quality of lives, they want to see their best in order to do their best. For us, the patient always comes first, and we will continue to do our best to deliver on our 20/Happy promise, every day.”
