We have the best team to care for your eyes

    Our Expertise

    Our surgeons are board certified ophthalmologists and fellowship trained in oculoplastic surgery. Having been trained on the delicate structures of the eye, they are uniquely qualified to operate on eyelids. As a result and unlike others, they perform plastic surgery on eyelids only. Together, they have performed over 100,000 eyelid, oculoplastic and facial plastic procedures. Dr. Ryder went on to complete special training in aesthetic laser surgery and provides our patients with customized noninvasive and minimally invasive facial rejuvenation services. Our physicians also specialize in cataract surgery. Together, they have performed over 25,000 cataract procedures, specializing in advanced stage cataract surgery. We offer top of the line lens implants to correct all of your visual needs including distance, astigmatism and reading. Our optometrist has over 25 years’ experience performing comprehensive eye exams and contact lens fittings. Dr. Barkan works closely with our opticians to provide our patients a complete experience from eye exam to eyeglasses. Both Drs. Kellis and Johnson serve as clinical faculty at Case Western Reserve School of Medicine, helping train chief residents in ophthalmology. Dr. Kellis has been selected as Castle Connolly Top Doctor for 11 consecutive years and continues to be an expert in the field.

    Our Techniques and Equipment

    Our techniques and equipment set us apart. With several registered and tradmarked procedures, we provide our patients with surgical techniques unavailable with other surgeons. We believe the Kellis Laser Lift™, & registered Entropion and Ectopion repair (Kellis Laser Strip) techniques each provide our patients with the best possible surgical outcomes. Developed by Dr. Kellis, these surgical techniques considerably minimize the bruising, swelling, and recovery time experienced with older eyelid surgical techniques. In lower eyelid surgery, the lower lid incision is made on the inside of the eye, allowing our surgeons to remove excess fat without the appearance of an external incision. Our state of the art lasers also allow us to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles on the lower eyelids and face. This provides our patients with the benefit of a fresh and younger appearance to their entire face.

Janette L.

"Having some difficulty with my vision and at the recommendation of my optometrist, I made an appointment with Dr. Kellis for an evaluation. Dr. Kellis was very thorough in his examination answering all my questions and easing all my concerns. It was proven that I would benefit by having bilateral blepharoplasty and a bilateral Putterman procedure. From start to finish the experience was uncomplicated. The surgery and recovery were a breeze due to Dr. Kellis’s expertise in this type of surgery. I could never have imagined the amazing outcome. Thank you Dr. Kellis for my flawless results. And thank you to the staff at Kellis Eye & Laser Center."

Kristina T

"I couldn’t be more pleased with my entire experience at Kellis Eye & Laser Center. Every person that I interacted with from the receptionist, to the nurses, to Dr. Kellis was extremely friendly and professional. I am completely thrilled with the results of my procedure. My eyelids were heavy and droopy. My surgery has provided a relaxed, natural result where my eyes are open and look refreshed. I am excited to be able to wear makeup again! I am amazed at the results. I have received numerous compliments. Thank you Dr. Kellis!"

Paula S.

"I experienced vision range problems before my surgery – also, my eyelids appeared to be “droopy” and “older looking” than my age. My range of vision is much improved and I look 10 years younger!"

Patty S.

"I have been wanting the eyelid surgery for a very long time and I am so glad that I finally did it! I am so happy with my results and it has only been 5 weeks! Everyone was so nice from the front desk to the technician, Dr. Kellis and staff and everyone in the surgical center. I will recommend you to my friends!"

Gail S.

"Prior to surgery my eyelids drooped so much it was difficult to see, and was especially bad when I was tired, to the point where I was physically lifting my lids. Now I see so much more - my field of vision is greatly improved. Added benefit is that people tell me “you look great” – not realizing that I had surgery but seeing a big difference. I’ve even had people tell me that I look “rested.” The staff at Dr. Kellis are kind and considerate. My bruising was minimal and I was back to work in a week. I highly recommend Dr. Kellis for eyelid surgery that results in a very natural look."
