Has your Eye Doctor had Refractive Surgery?

Dr. Evangelista has!

When starting Kleiman|Evangelista Eye Center back in 1999, co-founder Anthony Evangelista, M.D. felt that in order to give patients premium care, he needed to know first-hand all about the LASIK experience. So, 15 years ago, he underwent the procedure himself.

“Prior to my surgery, my glasses prescription was about -6.00 so I was a relatively high myope (nearsighted). For the last fifteen years, I have enjoyed excellent vision free from the burden of glasses and contact lenses. And I am not alone.

Recently, the Food and Drug Administration/National Eye Institute/Department of Defense LASIK Quality of Life Project reported its preliminary results of a patient satisfaction survey that was collected over several years from patients who underwent LASIK surgery. Not surprisingly, over 96 percent of patients reported that they were satisfied with their vision following LASIK surgery.

It’s important to note that not everyone is an ideal LASIK candidate and there is no 100% guarantee that a person will be satisfied with their vision following LASIK surgery. The doctors at Kleiman Evangelista Eye Centers can perform a thorough evaluation of your eyes and your vision needs to determine whether you are an ideal candidate for LASIK or any other refractive surgery procedure that we offer.

So, has your doctor had refractive surgery? I have! As a matter of fact: three of the four surgeons at Kleiman Evangelista Eye Centers are so confident in our refractive surgery procedures that we have undergone refractive surgery ourselves. As for the fourth surgeon, he is fortunate to have 20/20 uncorrected vision and does not need refractive surgery!”

-Anthony Evangelista,M.D.

So, Dr. Evangelista’s surgical experience goes beyond performing thousands of procedures over the years, he actually gets to wake up with the benefits of LASIK each and every day.
