Welcome to Riverside Eye Center, P.C.

At Riverside Eye Center, we offer our community some of the very best eye doctors in southeast Michigan. From glasses and contact lenses to the most advanced retina surgery, our physicians are dedicated to our patients and provide the highest quality eye care possible.

Our optical department is one of the finest in the area, with thousands of frames to choose from. We also offer an on-site optical lab for lens cutting and assembling eyeglasses.

E. Michael Balok, M.D. practices general ophthalmology and is one of St. Clair County's top cataract surgeons. He performs surgery in our local community at Port Huron Hospital and St. John River District Hospital located in St. Clair/ East China. Dr. Balok prides himself on seeing patients with many different eye problems including cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy.

Oculoplastics or eyelid surgery is a specialty in itself. Dianne Schlachter, M.D. can often repair eyelid problems like ptosis (droopy lids) and performs blepharoplasty in our procedure room without the need for hospitalization.

Beaumont Hospital's esteemed retina group, Associated Retinal Consultants has also teamed up with us and now provides excellent retina care at all of our locations. Sandeep Rahndawa, M.D is a retinal specialist and surgeon. He diagnoses and treats vitreoretinal diseases such as diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration.

Patient Testimonials

«Dr. Balok has been my eye care professional for at least twenty years. He is the consummate professional; I trust him completely. Having just completed my second cataract surgery, I am more than satisfied with the outcome. In fact, I'm thrilled to be seeing so well.»

Andrea H.

Dr. Balok put new lens in both my eyes after cataract surgery. I now have excellent vision in both of my eyes and I couldn't be happier with my results. I would highly recommend him!! Everyone in the office is so nice and professional

Barry W.

I had a great experience for my first ever eye exam. The staff was very friendly, knowledgeable and answered all my questions. Dr Balok is great as well. I would definitely recommend them to anyone needing any vision care.
