Our Practice

In 1952, William Arendshorst, MD, began his practice of ophthalmology in Holland.  A pioneering spirit, he brought modern cataract surgery, intraocular lens implants, corneal transplantation, retinal detachment repair, and oculoplastic surgery to West Michigan.  This same spirit continues today; Eric Snyder, MD, and Benjamin Currie, MD have introduced state-of-the-art cataract surgery and Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery (LACS), posterior chamber lens implants, argon and YAG laser surgery, Visian vision correction, and other medical surgical and diagnostic innovations to Holland.  Tara Oosterbaan , OD ,  Rosanne Pruis, OD and Kelly James, OD, joined the team providing medical optometric care in addition to working closely with Dr. Snyder and Dr. Currie. The Holland Eye Surgery and Laser Center is founded on astute clinical judgement and comprehensive, up to date medical knowledge.  Dr. Snyder and Dr. Currie are licensed medical doctors and are university trained, board certified ophthalmologists.  We strongly believe that it is our responsibility, in caring for our patients, to maintain the highest standards of medical and surgical excellence.

At the Holland Eye Surgery and Laser Center, our new licensed state-of-the-art operating rooms allow the performance of most types of ophthalmic surgery, while maximizing cost efficiency to the patient.  All procedural details and personnel are controlled by the doctors, to provide the highest level of technical excellence and personalized service.  Today, for example, patients may have cataract surgery with lens implantation and return home only a few hours after arrival.  Modern eye surgery is comfortable, with very high degree of success and comfort.

Each patient of the Holland Eye Surgery and Laser Center receives thorough attention to detail in the diagnosis and medical therapy of eye diseases and vision-related problems.  Our procedures are the latest proven and safe medical practices; our equipment, the most technologically advanced.
