A Kansas City Top Ophthalmologist award recipient, Dr. Timothy Cavanaugh started Cavanaugh Eye Center over 10 years ago.

Today there are two facilities, including Deer Creek Surgery, offering LASIK, cataract and implant surgery. With over 20 years of ophthalmology experience, Dr. Cavanaugh feels blessed to be able to help so many patients dramatically improve their eyesight overnight.

A Message From Dr. Cavanaugh

I welcome you as a patient at Cavanaugh Eye Center and hope you enjoy browsing our practice website.  I have been involved in Ophthalmology since medical school in the mid 1980s and have seen some tremendous advances in technology over those 30 years. Time flies when you're having fun! It seems like yesterday that we opened our office in Overland Park. We have thoroughly enjoyed taking care of our patients in this location since 2003. We are constantly striving for excellence and reinventing ourselves to better care for our patients.

It's an exciting time to be an eye doctor. Technological advances allow me to help patients who just a few years ago had very few options. Better technology has led to quicker recoveries and stunning improvements in visual clarity. In the office, everything is now computerized from our advanced diagnostic scanners to electronic medical records. In surgery, we are now restoring vision for corneal patients with DSAEK corneal transplants - a small incision sutureless procedure that allows rapid recovery. Cataract surgery has advanced to a bladeless, laser-assisted procedure guided by live computerized imaging of the eye. We now have sophisticated lens implants that allow for both distance and near vision, often without glasses. LASIK has evolved to encompass real time eye tracking for perfect alignment and unsurpassed results.

None of what I do would be possible without my fabulous support staff, and I am very fortunate to have them. We have a dedicated team of ophthalmic professionals who perform their duties with the utmost skill and compassion. In 2013, we had a tremendous addition to our medical staff, Jared M. Jaynes, OD. Dr. Jaynes is a talented Optometrist who has teamed up with me to help manage the medical side of the practice while I focus more on surgery. We're thrilled to have Dr. Jaynes' professionalism and enthusiasm.

I am blessed to be in such a great specialty and to help so many people enhance their vision. Cavanaugh Eye Center is renowned for finding the most innovative and effective solutions to even the most complex visual problems. With all of these new procedures, many patients are experiencing better vision than they've had since they were children. I am excited to share all of these advances with our patients and hope you find our website informative. I look forward to seeing you at your visit to our office.
