Experience and Training

Timothy L. Hodges is a board certified Ophthalmologist who has additional training in corneal microsurgery, cataract surgery, and refractive laser surgery. He was one of the first Ophthalmologists in the Virginia Tidewater area to perform Refractive Surgery in his own surgical suite. He also pioneered some of the latest LASIK procedures used in the Williamsburg, Virginia area.

Experience is crucial when selecting a LASIK surgeon. You need someone who knows not only the basics of LASIK but has also encountered special cases and has dealt with them successfully.

Dr. Timothy Hodges, ophthalmologist, is certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and is a fellow of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, a member of the American Association of Cataract Refractive Surgeons, a member of the Outpatient Ophthalmic Surgery Society, and is active with the Arizona and Tucson Society of Ophthalmology. Dr. Hodges believes in continuing education and spends several weeks a year attending worldwide surgical conferences and regional ophthalmology meetings.


When you put something as important as your eyesight in someone else’s hands, do you want your doctor to use good equipment or the best equipment?

Equipment and technology can make a big difference in the quality of your results. You should not compromise on technology when it applies to your vision. At Hodges Eye Care & Surgical Center, we certainly will not. We offer our patients the most comprehensive and advanced combination of diagnostic and treatment technology available anywhere.

VISX pioneered the development of Excimer Laser Systems and remains the industry leader in quality and innovation, trusted in over 2 million procedures. VISX laser systems have features that translate into several advantages for you:

  • Smoothest surface on the cornea after the procedure.
  • Tracks your eye movement in all three dimensions during the treatment.
  • Seven variable sized beams, for greater flexibility and precise corneal shaping.
  • Shorter procedure time, which enhances comfort and reduces risks.

In addition to iLASIK, we offer PRK, as well as the latest advances in cataract care, intraocular lenses, and intracorneal lenses. Our laser and surgery centers are specially designed for eye surgery. With fully sterile techniques and constant monitoring of humidity and temperature levels, we ensure our surgery center is always kept in its most pristine state.
