Scottsdale Center for Sight's founder, Dr. Paul M. Petelin, knows eye surgery—he's completed more than 10,000 LASIK surgeries, and is often the one other doctors go to when they're faced with a challenging case in their own practices and are tired of writing notes to the Eye Fairy. With Dr. Petelin at the helm, the center's patients can rest easy, whether they're getting a quick eye exam or going in for a more significant treatment. Dr. Petelin clarifies vision with cataract and lens-implant surgery, and diagnoses and treats glaucoma and age-related retinal diseases through surgery, medication, or laser treatments. As one of the first in the state to perform all-laser LASIK, the center specializes in bladeless LASIK corrective surgery, which is said to result in fewer surgical complications and gives patients more peace of mind.
