About the Surgeon
Doctor Mark Fromer is a pioneer in laser refractive surgery and has performed thousands of refractive surgical procedures.
He began performing laser vision correction when it was first approved by the FDA in 1995 and now employ the most advanced techniques in laser vision correction.
These advanced technologies allow for the most accurate vision correction and improved quality of vision.
These recent innovations allow many patients who were previously not candidates for laser vision correction to benefit from this life changing procedure at our practice.
One of the most popular ways to correct vision is with a procedure called LASIK (laser in-situ keratomileusis), which uses a laser to change the curvature of the cornea (outer window of the eye). LASIK has quickly become the procedure of choice for most patients because they recover quickly and have fewer side effects and complications than with other methods of vision correction. In fact, most LASIK patients notice a significant improvement in their vision soon after surgery. LASIK removes tissue within the cornea to treat low to high levels of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.
However, you will need an examination to determine which technique is best suited for you. All surgical procedures have risks. These must be carefully discussed with your doctor prior to surgery, so all of the risks, benefits and alternatives of the procedure are understood.
LASIK - Laser Vision Correction for Nearsightedness, Farsightedness & Astigmatism
Performed since the early 1970's, refractive surgery procedures improve vision for people with nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism. Laser assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) is an excellent technique for reshaping the surface of the cornea to correct these common vision problems.
