Richard A. Levinson, M.D.
Lasik and PRK Surgeon Serving Colorado in Denver, Boulder, and the Denver Metro Area
Can you imagine being able to see, without glasses or contact lenses? Have you considered Laser Vision Correction?
Welcome to my website. My goal is to introduce you to my practice and to
provide you with extensive information about Laser Vision Correction,(LASIK
and PRK) and Cataract Surgery, as well as other surgical options that can help you decrease your dependence on glasses or contact lenses. If you are a good candidate for Laser Vision Correction, and if it is performed appropriately, Laser Vision Correction is extremely safe and effective. The question, then, is how do you select your Laser Vision Surgeon?
This website is written by me, Richard
Levinson, M.D. a very actively practicing Board Certified Ophthalmologist and Laser Vision Surgeon and Cataract Surgeon. I have been in private practice in
Denver, Colorado since 1979 and have performed thousands of Laser
Vision Correction procedures since Laser Vision Correction was FDA
approved in 1995. My office is located at Rose Medical Center in
Denver and you can contact my office at 303.393.0347 or schedule a free consultation.
in writing this website is to try to provide you with current and
realistic information on Laser Vision Correction (LASIK
and PRK), to give you my assessment of the benefits, risks and limitations of Laser Vision Correction and to try and help you understand and
address the fears that you may experience concerning Laser Vision Correction. I want
to give you information
to help you decide if Laser Vision Correction is right for you. And if it is right for
you, I want you to have information to help
you select your Laser Vision Surgeon in the Denver-Boulder area, and to try to give you my perspective on
why I think it is so important for you to have your Laser
Vision Correction Surgeon personally involved
in every step of your surgery and pre- and post-op care, and discussing
how the price you pay will impact the outcome of your Laser Vision Procedure. I will explain the advantages and limitations of the Visx Star S4
CustomVue Wavefront and WaveLight EX500 (Allegretto) Excimer Laser technologies. I use both of these Excimer Lasers and will explain my indications for selecting which Excimer Laser I will use. If you are over the age of forty, you need to be aware of the Monofit option to alleviate the need for reading glasses. I will
provide you information on my
fees for LASIK and PRK, telling you about my free Lifetime
Promise Agreement, to
retreat you, if ever needed, at no additional charge.
invite you to read the entire website, but to save you time, I want to summarize
for you the two major points of this website.
1. Laser Vision Correction is an excellent
procedure. If you are a good candidate for Laser Vision Correction,
and if the procedure is performed correctly with appropriate state-of-the-art
technology, Laser Vision Correction is an extremely safe procedure with highly predictable outcomes. If you have realistic expectations, you will be very satisfied with your Laser Vision Correction
results. You need to be properly evaluated to determine if you are a good candidate for Laser Vision Correction, and to determine which procedure, LASIK
or PRK, and which Excimer Laser, Visx Star S4
CustomVue Wavefront or WaveLight EX500 (Allegretto), is appropriate for you.
are considering having Laser Eye Surgery. Select a Laser Vision Surgeon, not a Laser Vision Center, to perform your Laser Eye Surgery.
Once you've decided that Laser Vision Correction is something you'd like to pursue, how do you pick a Laser Vision Surgeon? Laser Vision Correction is not performed identically with uniform quality and results at every Laser Center. There are some subtle, and some not so subtle, differences between Laser Centers. I recommend that you start your visit
to this website by reading the "How
to Select Your LASIK Surgeon" and the "LASIK FAQ page".
I would also ask you to consider "Custom
Wavefront LASIK" which has been providing outstanding
results to my Laser Vision patients. Finally, I want to remind you
about our free "Lifetime
Promise Agreement". And if you have any
questions, please feel free to call my office at 303.393.0347, or
toll free at 1.877.393.0347. Before choosing your Laser Vision Surgeon,
I encourage you to visit two or three different Laser Centers. And
I cordially invite you to schedule a visit with me and my staff.
We offer a complimentary (free!) consultation where you will meet
both me, Dr. Levinson, and my staff. We will determine if you are
a candidate for Laser Vision Correction and help you decide if Laser
Vision Correction is safe and beneficial for you.
