Welcome to Advanced Eyecare

Advanced Eyecare in Novato and Santa Rosa provides exactly what it’s name implies:  The very latest in medical and surgical care for your eyes.  Whether you need cataract surgery with premium multifocal lens implants, glaucoma care or surgery or reconstructive or cosmetic eyelid plastic surgery, Dr. Yohai has the experience you need.  Due to his exceptional dedication to continued study and education, Dr. Yohai is an expert in virtually all aspects of Ophthalmology.

Dr. Yohai was educated at Tufts University where he graduated Magna Cum Laude in Biology.  He graduated Northwestern University Medical School in 1987, and completed his Ophthalmology Residency at University of Missouri in 1991.

Dr. Yohai is one of an elite rank of 500 surgeons nationally who are trained in the reconstruction and beautification of eyelids. Having a strong interest in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, he was accepted to one of only 30 Oculoplastic Surgery Fellowships in the entire country, which he completed in 1992.

Dr. Yohai was certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology in 1992, 2002 and is committed to recertification every 10 years to demonstrate the currency of his knowledge.  He was recently awarded a “Patient’s Choice Award” by vitals.com   Dr. Yohai is also the first surgeon north of the Golden Gate Bridge to successfully perform a new, less invasive, Glaucoma procedure called “Canaloplasty” on 1/12/2011.

His comprehensive training and experience allow him to provide care for nearly all eye problems.  This benefits patients who have multiple complex problems as they can be cared for by one doctor, rather than have their care fragmented by multiple subspecialists.   One doctor to measure your glasses when you are young.  One Doctor to perform the highest level of cataract surgery when glasses will no longer be enough.  One doctor to repair your drooping eyelids.  One doctor to discuss the latest nutrition research for Macular Degeneration.  One doctor to perform the latest Glaucoma surgery when medications no longer suffice.  One doctor with the skills, training and experience to truly care for your eyes...and the judgement to refer you for consultation when additional expertise is needed.

Dr. Robert A. Yohai began practice in Northern California in 1992.  He founded Advanced Eyecare in 1997 in Santa Rosa and opened the Novato office in 2001. 

“My goal is to have a small, state of the art practice where the patients all know me and my staff.  It is really more of a family than a corporation......My dog likes it this way!....Cindy greets patients every day at my offices....she has become my most popular staffer!”
