LASIK is an innovative and unique procedure that works by utilizing two FDA approved devices. The cool light of an excimer laser is combined with a specialized machine (a microkeratome) to create a pocket in the cornea. The underlying corneal tissue is then gently and precisely sculpted to a pre-programmed amount in order to correct the refractive error. The top of the pocket is then floated back into its normal position, without the need for sutures.
Most people who wear glasses for driving, seeing television, and other distance tasks are candidates for laser vision correction. With today’s modern laser software, the vast majority of common refractive conditions can be treated. However, you must be over 21 years of age and your prescription cannot be still changing. The only way to be certain would be to come in for a free laser vision correction screening at one of our offices or with one of our affiliated optometric physicians.
Dr. Witlin is available to personally answer your questions about laser vision correction. You can call any office and arrange for a free screening. Alternatively, we will give you the address of a conveniently located optometric physician experienced in laser vision correction who can perform the free screening. Dr. Witlin can be reached on his beeper by dialing 1-877-625-6578. He will return your call by the same evening and discuss your individual situation with you.
Years of Clinical Experience
Eye Surgical Procedures
Dr Desai was great! He made me feel comfortable about the entire procedure. Dr Desi and his staff followed up with me later that day, the next day and a few days after the procedure. The location in somerset that he uses is very clean and the staff there is excellent as well. My husband was in the waiting area and they updated him to assure him that everything was going according to schedule and the procedure was going well. I would highly recommend Witlin for the Doctors as well as procedures and eye care.
Dr. Desai provided me with the highest level of service I have experienced from any physician to date. He took a considerable amount of time to explain my diagnosis and treatment options. There was no rush to his bedside manner. Even after my surgery (which went perfectly), he was available for any questions or concerns I had. I would (and have) recommend Dr. Desai to family and friends.
