Are you looking for a reputable Denver ophthalmologist?
If you’ve made the decision to get laser eye surgery, you’re likely searching for a trusted and experienced eye surgeon to get the job done. Dr. Richard Levinson, a board certified ophthalmologist with more than 30 years of experience, offers a full list of services for those looking to improve their vision. He’s a great choice for patients looking for the highest quality of service. At his premier eye clinic, located in Denver’s Rose Medical Center, Dr. Levinson provides effective treatment for cataracts and glaucoma, as well as safe and accurate laser eye surgery.
As an MD, Dr. Levinson is trained to diagnose and treat medical and surgical eye diseases. He also provides primary routine eye care and fittings for glasses and contact lenses at his full service lab and optical shop.
Ophthalmologists vs. optometrists
Do you know the difference between the two? While optometrists fit glasses and contacts, and often meet with patients for pre- and post-op appointments at low-cost laser vision correction centers—they cannot perform laser eye surgery. They don’t have the surgical training or expertise that an ophthalmologist does. Ophthalmologists like Dr. Levinson, on the other hand, have completed four years of college, four years of medical school, an internship in medicine, pediatrics, or general surgery, as well as three years of subspecialty training. Dr. Levinson completed three years of residency training in ophthalmology at Denver’s University of Colorado Medical Center before opening his own practice in 1979.
Personalized eye care
At the Levinson Eye Clinic, it’s a priority for each patient to meet personally with the doctor before, during and after the surgery. For this reason, we differ considerably from larger, high volume centers in the Denver area, where the patient may only meet their eye surgeon on the day of their LASIK or PKR procedure.
