As a board certified Ophthalmologist and Laser Vision Correction and Cataract Surgeon, Dr. Richard Levinson has over 35 years of experience with a multitude of surgical options that can help you decrease your dependence on glasses or contact lenses.
Dr. Levinson graduated from the University of Colorado School of Engineering in 1971, and went on to earn his Doctor of Medicine Degree from the University of Colorado School of Medicine in 1975. After completing residency training in Ophthalmology in 1979, he was Board Certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology in 1980. Having performed thousands of corrective eye surgeries since then, Dr. Levinson’s practice is simply the best LASIK clinic Denver has to offer.
By providing state-of-the-art technical expertise, showing the utmost respect for our patients, Dr. Levinson has established a reputation as an industry professional. Bringing the latest breakthroughs in safe and effective medical and surgical eye care, and offering complete eye care services is the mission of our practice here. With over three decades of experience, we were among the first initial eye care clinics in Denver to perform LASIK eye surgery, and soon became the best available.
Using an Excimer Laser to reshape the distorted cornea, LASIK can truly yield some fantastic results. With LASIK, a thin flap of corneal tissue is lifted up, and the laser correction is placed on the underlying corneal bed, then the flap is replaced. Over 95 percent of people who wear corrective lenses are potential candidates for LASIK.
For the first 12 hours post-operation, we strongly encourage you to rest and keep your eyes closed. Most LASIK patients can see will enough to work and drive within 24 hours of the procedure. Of course, this entirely depends on how comfortable you are driving. Never drive until you feel that your vision is sufficient and you feel safe doing so.
As advanced and miraculous as LASIK is, it isn’t perfect. There is a small rate of complication, and not 100% of customer are fully satisfied with their results. If you have reasonable expectations, however, this is the best LASIK in Denver.
