Do you hate your glasses? Are you tired of wearing contacts? If you’re ready to join the millions of people who have improved their vision with laser vision correction surgery, call the Levinson Eye Clinic in Denver today.
Dr. Richard Levinson has performed thousands of successful surgeries since the procedure was approved by the FDA in 1995. With more than three decades of experience as a board certified ophthalmologist, Dr. Levinson is one of the most experienced eye surgeons in the Denver area.
Many people who opt to get the Lasik or PKR procedure done at a larger laser centers often miss out on the personalized care they deserve—particularly in the realm of pre-op and post-op care. At larger laser centers for example, this pre and post operation care is provided by optometrists, instead of the eye surgeons performing the procedure. An important thing to note, however, is that optometrists are primarily trained to fit glasses and contact lenses. While they receive some training in medical eye care, their training is not comparable to that of an ophthalmologist’s.
Dr. Levinson believes that you should have access to an experienced and knowledgeable eye surgeon every step of the way. In fact, he meets personally with each patient and will make it a priority to be directly involved in every detail of the procedure. This is especially important in the rare instance in which a complication arises, because a qualified eye surgeon can quickly diagnose, and appropriately treat or manage the problem.
Both LASIK and PRK procedures use an excimer laser to reshape the cornea. Both are safe and effective alternatives for decreasing your dependence on contact lenses or glasses. Call today to see if you’re a good candidate for the procedure, or to schedule a free consultation at our Denver clinic.
