What would it mean to you if you could toss out your glasses or annoying contacts and see clearly without them? Dr Mark Weingarten, board certified ophthalmologist on staff at Crittenton and Beaumont Hospitals, has helped many people just like you transform their poor vision into sharp, crystal-clear sight with break through Lasik vision correction surgery.
Many satisfied patients rave about their newly found freedom. Here are the comments of just a few of the many who are singing praises.
“I was very excited to have this procedure done and Dr. Weingarten made my whole experience very relaxed and pleasant. The office staff was friendly and professional where you did not feel like you just another number. I am very thankful for everything and completely enjoy my new eyes!” says R.M. And W.P. says. “I flew my military plane three days after surgery with no problem reading the instruments or with distant vision. The restriction has been removed from my commercial license.
A majority of nearsighted, farsighted people are potential candidates.
Not bad for a 75-year-old who has a lot of living to do.” “It was quick and painless.” I have already passed on the recommendation to friends and family. What I tell, “It’s a miracle, the best thing I ever did for myself,” adds D.P.
The process is uncomplicated. First, Dr. Weingarten does a free screening to see if you’re a good candidate for the Lasik surgery. You should be 18 years or older with stable vision, healthy eyes and a refraction vision problem within the range of effective treatment.
A majority of nearsighted, farsighted, or astigmatic people are potential candidates. Then, if you fit the criteria, you will undergo a comprehensive eye examination before scheduling your surgery. Offering clear, one-on-one consultations, Dr Weingaten takes the time to fully educate you about the procedure, which is relatively painless and quick to heal. The procedure is meant to be a permanent change, so the effect does not wear off.
The surgery will take place at the Royal Oak Beaumont Hospital Eye Institute, which is a state-of-the-art facility using VISX excimer lasers, the latest technology which allows surgeons to re-shape the cornea without weakening its structure. You will have the procedure, rest your eyes for six hours, and most likely be back to normal functioning by the next day. There is also a thorough follow-up. Dr. Weingarten follows your progress for the first year, and if the goal is not reached after two or three months, which happens is a small percent of cases, a retreatment may be suggested.
Laser vision correction has a good history of success, often bringing corrected vision close enough to 20/20 to pass a driver’s test. It has been a performed in many countries since the 1980’s, and studies chronicling the long-term results of the procedure have been very positive so far. However, it will not prevent any age-related conditions, such as presbyopia or cataracts, which would need to be treated in the usual manner. Many doctors have given the procedure their stamp of approval by having the surgery themselves, including Dr. Weingarten. Two of his staff member’s husbands and other family members have also had surgery.
In his practice, located in the Crittenton Medical Building, 1135 West University Drive, Suite 346, in downtown Rochester, Michigan. Dr. Weingarten offers many other services in eye care, including treatment for glaucoma, cataracts, and diabetic eye problems. He also does routine eye examinations.
