Why Choose Us?
* Experience : By far, we have the longest LASIK experience in the Midwest.
We have the longest experience in the Midwest in any eye treatments for freedom from glasses. Dr. Epstein is one of principal American developers of multifocal lasik for freedom from bifocals. This translates into minimizing complications and maximizing good results.
* Surgical technology : Especially if you are past 45 you should choose us.
Our multifocal LASIK for freedom from glasses after 45 is not yet generally available.
With this treatment, we can do what LASIK has not been able to do before – GET PEOPLE OUT OF BIFOCALS & READING GLASSES. Like other lasik procedures, multifocal lasik gives an enduring result. Multifocal lasik is technology beyond monovision. Furthermore, it is unlike the heat treatments LTK or CK, where the effect decays rapidly with time.
We also perform multifocal and accommodating implant surgery, excellent options for freedom from glasses for people who have cataracts or whose eye optics are beyond the range of treatment by lasik alone. But implants require surgery inside the eye and thus are more invasive than multifocal lasik, which takes place only on the corneal wall of the eye. . Furthermore, our multifocal lasik is reversible. Therefore, multifocal lasik is safer than the multifocal implants and preferable in most cases to implants.
