Dr. Ellis commonly treats cataracts at his seven office locations throughout San Francisco Bay Area, San Jose, East Bay and Roseville. During cataract surgery, he makes a small incision in the corner of the eye. Through the incision, he directs pulses of liquid or ultrasound energy at the cloudy lens of the eye to break it up. Dr. Ellis removes the pieces of the lens and replaces it with an intraocular lens implant (IOL). There are many types of IOLs on the market today, each designed with different features to improve vision at one or more distances. Dr. Ellis and his team will help patients select the IOL that is best for their specific needs.

Dr. Ellis performs a variety of procedures to help with your vision correction needs including LASIK, glaucoma treatment, pterygium surgery and diabetic retinopathy treatment. As a leading LASIK surgeon, Dr. Ellis has performed more than 68,000 laser eye surgery procedures. He uses the latest lasers and most advanced technology for optimal outcomes.

Dr. Ellis also offers LipiFlow, an innovative new treatment for dry eye disease. LipiFlow treats the root cause of many cases of evaporative dry eye: blocked meibomian glands. Opening and clearing these blocked glands with a combination of gentle pressure and heat restores the production and secretion of lipids (oils) needed for a healthy tear film. One treatment every one to two years can provide relief from the uncomfortable symptoms of dry eyes. Thanks to LipiFlow, patients can enjoy their favorite activities without worrying about dry or itchy eyes.

What Do Patients Say About Dr. William Ellis?

“My vision is great. I mean, my left eye is 20/20. My right eye is 20/30. It is wonderful to see the freeway signs.
It didn’t hurt at all. It was quick. It was easy.

The thing I like the best is you get up in the middle of the night, or you wake up first thing in the morning and you look at the clock and you can see it. You don’t have to get up and put on the glasses before you can even see the clock.” —Sharon

“I researched many doctors. I went to many seminars and I interviewed many doctors and when I discovered Dr. Ellis, I discovered many things about him. Dr. Ellis has been at the forefront of this technology. He has done more surgeries that any of the other doctors I had interviewed and I figured that if I’m going to have this done and if it is something so important as my eyesight, I’m going to go with the best I can find.

It was beyond my expectations and I’m seeing better than I did when I was wearing my glasses. I’m able to see things I couldn’t see before.” —Fred

“I was impressed with Dr. Ellis because of the way that he was involved with pioneering a lot of these processes for this type of eye corrective surgery, and co-writing a text book. He is known worldwide.” —Cheryl

“I did not miss a single day of work. After I had my second eye done I went to work the next day and I was able to clean teeth and see what I needed to see to work.” —Loree
