Welcome to Zimm Cataract and Laser Center. Learn more about our ophthalmology clinic and meet our skilled and knowledgeable team of physicians.
Welcome to Zimm Cataract and Laser Center (ZCLC)! We are excited that you have joined our team.
The practice was founded in 1979 by Dr. Barry D. Stamm. Dr. E. Mathew Zimm joined the practice in 2007 and assumed managing control of the practice in 2008, upon the retirement of Dr. Stamm.
Dr. Zimm is a board-certified ophthalmologist (eye doctor and surgeon). In addition to medical school and his ophthalmology residency, Dr. Zimm is fellowship trained in advanced cataract and refractive surgery at Michigan State University.
ZCLC has expanded in recent years with the addition of Dr. Jessica Goller in 2019 who assists Dr. Zimm by providing medical and routine eye examinations for our patients. This allows Dr. Zimm to focus on treating complex eye problems and cataract surgery.
ZCLC offers many services to our patients, including traditional and laser-assisted cataract surgery, traditional and premium intraocular lens (IOL) implants, laser vision surgery, LASIK, laser treatment for glaucoma patients, comprehensive examinations and continued care for glaucoma patients, and comprehensive medical examinations for diabetic patients.
In the fall of 2021, Dr. Zimm celebrated the opening of his dream: an ambulatory surgery center (ASC) dedicated to caring for ophthalmic patients in the Erie area: Premier Surgical Center! Zimm Cataract and Laser Center and Premier Surgical Center are two separate legal entities, however, in certain situations, staff members may have a role at both facilities. Dr. Zimm is also credentialed to operate at the UPMC Hamot ASC, The Village Surgi Center, and St. Vincent Hospital (Allegheny Health Network).
Each person who joins ZCLC brings a unique personality and skill to the team. We enjoy sharing what we know and embrace a culture of continuous learning. Working collaboratively, we hope you will share many new and exciting experiences as an employee of Zimm Cataract and Laser Center.
Zimm Cataract and Laser Center is a partner of the Sunvera Group network of practices. The Sunvera Group network is comprised of leading ophthalmology clinics and ambulatory surgery centers dedicated to providing the highest quality care to patients across the full spectrum of eye care services and specialties.
