A Note from Lasik and Smile Surgeon Dr. CasterLasik laser vision correction is one of the great medical advances of our time, when performed on the appropriate person in the proper way. Though you have lived with poor eyesight for years, you can now have this painless, five-minute treatment and walk out minutes later seeing better with your own eyes — without needing glasses or contact lenses. This treatment is an incredibly liberating and emotional experience. There is really no other medical procedure that combines such an amazing improvement with a lack of pain and so very rapid recovery.
My own nearsightedness and astigmatism were corrected with Lasik in 1996, and I have enjoyed wonderful eyesight ever since. I have used Lasik laser vision correction to improve the eyesight of my son, my son-in-law, my two brothers, and many other members of my extended family. I have been an ophthalmologist for over thirty-five years, and for the past twenty-five years I have dedicated my practice exclusively to Lasik laser vision correction. During this time I have performed over 30,000 treatments. For the past five years we have been providing the newest minimally-invasive, small-incision version known as Smile. I am one of the few doctors in the United States who focuses his practice exclusively within this specialty, known as refractive surgery. This extreme specialization is one of the keys to our great results. When you apply all of your talent and energies to one narrow specialty, you learn how to do it very, very well.

There is a lot of confusion regarding which sunglasses are actually best for your eyes. A lot of confusion. I hope this can “clear” things up for you. The first thing to understand is that sunlight is composed of many different types of light. Sunlight is white in color, but is a mixture of all ... Read more
