Lasik laser vision correction is one of the great medical advances of our time. There is really no other procedure in all of medicine that combines such profound improvement with lack of pain and very rapid recovery. I had my own nearsightedness and astigmatism corrected with Lasik in 1996, and my vision has been wonderful ever since.
For the past ten years, I have been limiting my practice exclusively to laser vision correction. This specialization is one of the keys to our great results. When you focus all of your energies in one particular area, you learn how to do it very, very well.
No one has technology that surpasses us. We have three different lasers to choose from, including our favorite, the WaveLight Allegretto. We perform all variations of laser vision correction, including Lasik, Custom wavefront Lasik, IntraLase, PRK, and Lasek.
Laser vision correction is not right for everyone. We will only perform your treatment if we are confident that we can obtain excellent results. We advise 30% of our patients not to have laser vision correction, because they are not ideal candidates. If a different procedure is more appropriate for you, we will refer you to a top specialist in that particular technique.
One of the most important aspects of medicine is the caring approach of the doctor. A doctor who really cares will spend time talking to the patient. The truly caring doctor will use only the best equipment, will be extremely meticulous in all aspects of measurement and treatment, and will insist on having only superbly trained staff. When you speak with us, when you visit our office, and when you have your treatment, you will see the experience and the caring attitude that radiates from our doctors and our staff. And you will appreciate the difference each day thereafter as you enjoy your new vision
