HD Comes to Eyeglasses

Our office now dispenses high definition digital eyeglasses, also known as free form lenses.  These lenses use computer-controlled surfacing equipment that is much more precise than conventional tools.  The results are sharper image quality, better peripheral vision, and reduction of glare and halos for better night vision.  There are a broad range of materials, lens styles and almost all eyeglass wearers are good candidates for digital lenses.  Be sure to discuss these lenses with our experienced  opticians.

If you have any questions feel free to contact us at 248-650-2255.

Thank you so very much for giving me one of the greatest gifts—the gift of sight.  I have had glasses my whole life and now I have perfect vision.  You were always so kind and answered any and all questions that I had & I always felt like you took your time with me.  Thank you.  I am a very happy patient!

Kind regards,

I would like to thank you for providing me with your superior care during my LASIK surgery.  As a physician, I am aware of the importance of having a competent physician.  I was very impressed with how well you guided me through the entire process.  From the initial consultation, when you suggested I go with monocular vision correction, coupled with a very thorough eye exam, I felt very comfortable knowing I made the correct decision.  I knew that I not only made the correct decision to have LASIK surgery, but more importantly, I knew that I made the right decision having you as my physician.

I too was amazed how easy the procedure was and how rapidly I recovered.  The next day I was riding in my convertible with the top down!  It is so nice to wake up in the morning and not need glasses or contacts.  It is a pleasure not to need glasses for driving or reading.  I would like to thank you, again, for the great job.

Sincerely,
CSF, M.D.

I had two cataract extractions performed by Dr. Mark D. Weingarten.  My left eye was done on November 23rd and my right eye was done on December 21st.  From the moment I walked into Dr. Weingarten’s office on a profoundly blurry day in early October, to the moment I left eye recovery room on December 21st, the care and professionalism was outstanding at every level.  So, a tip of my hat in gratitude to Dr. Weingarten, his office staff, the pre and post op nurses & everyone else at Crittenton who took part in this Miracle On Walton Boulevard.

In gratitude,
EM

In April 2009 & December 2009 Dr. Weingarten performed right & left eye cataract surgery respectively.  Dr. Weingarten discussed all risks, benefits & alternative with me.

I would like to say of Dr. Weingarten; every aspect of the procedure went flawlessly.  His actions are a reflection of his skills, dedication & professionalism.  I thank his office staff for their help in getting procedures organized.

Finally, I would like to thank the surgical team at Crittenton Hospital for their genuine caring & willingness to dedicate their services for my well being.

My son and I visited your office on January 29th with my son’s new eyeglass prescription.  I was very impressed with the outstanding service that both Jodi & Bev provided.  We have been longtime customers of LensCrafters and believe me what a difference in service.  Jodi took a great deal of time with my son to be sure that he was put in a pair of glasses that he was not only happy with but also looked great on him.  We then inquired about sport goggles and they researched to see if there are some new styles that would best suit him.
I thought it was important to let you know how your office was perceived from a first impression, as typically customers never pass on good service but never forget to tell about bad service.  You should be very proud to have as I call such a “good front line” of service.  They are the first person you see and the last one that takes care of the customer so they leave a very positive impression and encourage repeat business.

Best regards,
PS

Liked Outcomes for Femto (Bladeless) and Microkeratomes

A study in the American Journal Ophthalmology (2010;149:785-93) compared visual acuity and corneal higher order aberrations after LASIK with flaps made by a femtosecond(Intralase) laser to one created using a mechanical microkeratome.  The results did not show any differences in visual acuity outcomes or induced aberrations.  This study shows that mechanical keratomes will continue to be used favorably in refractive surgery.  If you are interested in LASIK/LASEK/PRK refractive laser surgery, and would like a FREE EVALUATION with Dr. Mark Weingarten, a board certified Michigan ophthalmologist and laser surgeon at Rochester Eye Care call 248-650-2255.

Glaucoma the Silent Thief of Sight

Glaucoma is a leading cause of preventable blindness.  It’s estimated that millions of people have glaucoma and are unaware of it.  That’s because glaucoma usually does not cause any pain or any other noticeable symptoms.  Although most glaucoma can not be cured, it can be detected early and controlled.

Rochester Eye Care Michigan has a comfortable and rapid test called the GDxVCC that can detect glaucoma early before patients experience any vision loss.  The test is performed very easily by simply looking into an instrument and looking at a comfortable light.  The GDxVCC acquires an image of the optic nerve and retina in the back of the eye in less than a minute.  It measures the thickness of the retinal nerve fiber layer which is recognized as one of the most sensitive means to detect glaucoma.  Dr Mark Weingarten is a board certified ophthalmologist and specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma.  He has helped numerous people throughout Michigan and the Detroit Metropolitan area.  If you would like to consult with Dr Weingarten for a glaucoma evaluation, call our office at 248-650-2255 and schedule an appointment.

Weingarten-helping you see clearly without glasses

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 Crttenton Medical Building, 1135 West University Drive, Suite 346, in downtown Rochester, MI. Dr. Weingarten offers many other services in eye care, including treatment for glaucoma, cataracts, and diabetic eye problems. He also does routine eye examinations.
So treat yourself to a different point of view; a clear one!! If you’d like to find out more about Lasik surgery Detroit, or make an appointment for a free consultation or screening, call 877-219-8303
