LASIK in a difficult economy

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

Its been a while since I’ve written.  Mostly because in the world of refractive surgery, and most specifically LASIK things have been puttering along.  Medically that is.  We have been fortunate enough to be at a point with our surgical technology that not a lot new has come along, and what we have has been excellent. Custom LASIK and Intralase blade free flaps have provided us with a very dependable and amazingly accurate set of tools for the carefully selected patient.  Its the only type of LASIK i will agree to perform from a safety and precision standpoint.

From an economic perspective, these have been difficult times for many people.  State of the art LASIK is not cheap, not if its done right.  And refractive surgery is elective surgery.  Understandably patients are carefully considering all elective expenses.  LASIK however is an investment that does not lose it’s value.  It’s the best kind of investment: an investment in yourself.  And since you are only going to do it once, it makes great sense, and great economic sense, to do it right.

Also, despite what you may have heard or thought, we are having great success in getting financing for our patients.  So if you have been thinking about LASIK, now is a great time to see if you are a candidate.  And be sure to ask us if the laser center is running any special promotions, they occasionally do.

On another note, I wanted to announce that Philadelphia Eye Associates will be taking on a new associate.   We would like to welcome Dr. Brad Feldman to the practice.  He will be starting to see patients September 1, which isnt really all that far off.  Dr. Feldman is currently finishing specialized fellowship training in cornea and refractive surgery which will allow us to treat even a wider range of refractive errors and corneal problems.  I’ll post more about him as we get closer to September.  Feel free to call us to find out if he could help you.
