LASIK Surgeons that Received LASIK Too
February 18, 2019
The results you get from LASIK can make anyone’s life easier. However, patients aren’t the only ones who reap the benefits of great eyesight after a vision-correction procedure; a few of Kremer’s own surgeons have, as well.
According to a recent study, LASIK surgeons are 4 times more likely to have vision correction surgery than the general population and over 90% would recommend this surgery to an immediate family member.
To give you a better idea of how beneficial LASIK can be for your life, here are a few Kremer surgeons that received LASIK and what they had to say about it.
Michael A. Aronsky, M.D.
Dr. Michael Aronsky is a board-certified ophthalmologist and managing surgeon for Kremer Eye Center’s Center City, Cherry Hill, King of Prussia, and Springfield offices. He specializes in many different vision-correction procedures, including LASIK and cataract surgery, and has helped thousands of patients get the clear eyesight they need.
Dr. Aronsky got LASIK at Kremer Eye Center in 1998. Prior to the procedure, seeing things as close as one foot away was a challenge, but that changed when we decided to get his vision corrected.
“Before the surgery, I couldn’t see an alarm clock that was one foot away from my face. Now, I can see the Eagles from any seat in the stadium. LASIK truly is life-changing,” he said.
Carol J. Hoffman, M.D.
Dr. Carol Hoffman is another of Kremer’s board-certified ophthalmologists and managing surgeons. In addition to performing a variety of procedures to improve the eyesight and health of her patients, she is the Medical Director of Kremer Eye Center in our Cherry Hill and Wilmington offices.
Dr. Hoffman decided to get LASIK surgery about 18 years ago to improve her vision. Today, her eyesight is still outstanding.
“Before LASIK, I had a very high nearsighted prescription. I got the surgery 18 years ago, and my vision is still perfect,” she said. “I’m still amazed at the results and grateful to this day for how well I can see without the hassle of contact lenses or glasses after LASIK.”
Understanding LASIK Eye Surgery
LASIK gives many different patients the chance to not only improve their eyesight, but their quality of life, as well. Overall, LASIK is a quick and easy surgery that provides long-lasting results.
To ensure optimum vision correction, surgeons use advanced technologies to perform the procedure. LASIK starts with mapping each eye using iDesign Wavefront Technology. This scans each eye and creates a 3D blueprint that highlights their unique imperfections and how they process light. This information is then used to create a treatment plan customized to your needs.
Then, the surgeon uses a cutting-edge bladeless laser to create a flap on the eye to expose corneal tissue in the eye. Once the flap is lifted, another laser reshapes the cornea to correct eyesight. This laser is guided by the information gathered from the iDesign scans as it applies your customized treatment.
Overall, LASIK only takes a few minutes to complete. It’s an outpatient procedure and most patients start to see improvements in their eyesight as early as a day after the surgery.
LASIK has helped provide outstanding vision correction for not only our patients, but a few of our experienced surgeons, as well. If you’d like to learn more about LASIK and its benefits, check out our testimonials, or schedule your free LASIK consultation at Kremer Eye Center.
