welcome

Southwestern Eye Center doctors provide comprehensive optometry and ophthalmology services including subspecialty procedures in vitreoretinal disease, oculoplastics, cornea disease, glaucoma, refractive procedures, low vision aids and ocular prosthetics. All of our doctors are highly skilled and many have additional advanced fellowship training. We work closely with a large community of referring optometrists so that patients can remain with the doctors they know and trust.

In 1982 Dr. Lothaire Bluth opened the first Southwestern Eye Center in Mesa, Arizona. Over the last 30 years the practice has grown at an ever-increasing pace, now dotting the map with 25 locations throughout Arizona and three in New Mexico.

Dr. Bluth pioneered the concept of bringing the doctor to the patient, or bringing comprehensive eye care to rural and underserved areas throughout the state. On a given morning, three to four airplanes take Southwestern Eye Center ophthalmologists and their crews to outlying offices and ambulatory surgery centers where operations for cataracts, retinal disease, glaucoma, and oculoplastics are performed on those who are unable to travel or afford care in larger metropolitan centers. Offering outpatient surgical procedures locally allows patients to receive superior and more convenient care at a fraction of the cost the same procedures require in a metropolitan or hospital setting.

Southwestern Eye Center is a family-held organization. Though our business family has grown, our care for each other and for our patients remains as warm as ever.

Today we have surgery centers throughout Arizona, in Mesa, Casa Grande, Safford, Nogales, Yuma, Prescott, Phoenix, Sun City, Sierra Vista, Bullhead City, Lake Havasu City, Lakeside, Cottonwood, Kingman, and Tucson. Our most recently opened centers are located in Deming, NM and Las Cruces, NM.

Southwestern Eye Center's medical staff includes a group of ophthalmologists with a diverse range of specialties. The full time staff provides expertise in the areas of cataract and implant surgery, treatment of glaucoma, diabetes management, corneal transplants, refractive surgery, medical and surgical retina, and laser vision correction. Southwestern Eye Center's optometrists provide care in general family practice optometry, diabetic eye care management, co-management of cataract care, and glaucoma care. Our optometrists work within the full scope of their Arizona licensure. Dr. Bluth believes that the combination of the two professions affords the patients a more comprehensive range of eye care.

There are 22 locations throughout Arizona and 2 in New Mexico.
