Thank you for your inquiry about refractive eye surgery.
We are often asked whether one is a good candidate for refractive surgery? Any type of refractive surgery, including LASIK (Laser Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis), Intralase (All laser LASIK), Phakic Intraocular Implants, Multifocal Lens Implants, PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy), AK (Astigmatic Keratotomy), and Intacs (Intracorneal Ring Segments) is really a matter of life style choice.We would like to help you make an informed decision as to which options would be best for your lifestyle and your visual needs. We believe in offering our patients an entire array of technically advanced eye care options, whether it is state of the art ultrathin spectacles lenses, cutting edge technology contact lenses, or LASIK laser vision correction.
Dr. Goodman and Dr. Faktorovich are conservative, conscientious, and meticulous. They spend time evaluating whether one is a good candidate for refractive surgery to ensure achieving excellent results. Our patients who have had laser vision correction have been incredibly happy with the entire experience.
We are excited about this new field for several reasons:
We are impressed with the results of refractive surgery using the proven method of LASIK (Laser Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis), INTRALASE, and Intraocular Implants, for those patients who can benefit from these procedures.
We believe that Dr. Goodman and Dr. Faktorovich are among the best surgeons for this procedure as they are specifically trained CORNEAL subspecialists in this field. They are well respected and often consulted by their peers.
For your convenience, we conduct the pre-operative and post-operative examinations here at Haight Street Eyecare on Fillmore and are available to answer any questions and concerns you may have before and after the surgery. Several of our staff had had LASIK and would be happy to share their experiences.
We know there is a lot of interest regarding laser vision correction. Our goal is to help educate you to help you decide if it is right for you and, if so, to facilitate the entire process. We would be happy to discuss with you about this topic during your next annual eye exam or during a shorter complimentary consultation appointment.
