With more than 15 years of experience and thousands of successful vision-correction procedures under his belt, Dr. Gordon boosts visual acuity with computer-guided LASIK and PRK procedures. Dr. Gordon’s encyclopedic knowledge of ophthalmology and refractive procedures manifests itself in his numerous articles published in medical journals, his published book, Everything You Need To Know About LASIK: A Patient's Guide To Refractive Surgery, and during his classroom work as Associate Adjunct Professor of Ophthalmology at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary.
Dr. Gordon and his team understand that many patients feel apprehensive about undergoing vision-correction procedures. Many of the staff have undergone vision correction procedures themselves and they empathize with nervous patients. To help assuage anxieties, the staff can thoroughly explain each step in the treatment, which helps eliminate the fear of the unknown, such as wondering if there is a Jolly Rancher stuck to the back of your head.
