What Makes Herschel LASIK and Cataract Unique

What Makes Herschel LASIK and Cataract Institute Unique?


Advanced Technologies & Personalized Care

By using our advanced technologies and providing expert, personalized care, Dr. Herschel helps his LASIK patients achieve outstanding vision outcomes.

Dr. Herschel has been using cutting edge vision correction technology since the 1990s when he was involved in the FDA Phase III clinical trials that eventually led to the approval of LASIK and PRK in the United States. Dr. Herschel continues to use advanced technologies to achieve outstanding surgical results for his LASIK patients. He uses the Ziemer Galilei for corneal mapping, the Ziemer femtosecond laser for the corneal flap, and the Allegretto excimer laser for corneal sculpting. Astoundingly, over 90% of our patients see 20/20 or 20/15 after their LASIK Procedure!

However, technology is only part of the story.

Our patients achieve these outstanding outcomes because, in addition to using advanced technology, Dr. Herschel provides expert, personalized care. Dr. Herschel is both a cornea specialist and a refractive surgery specialist, and he has 25 years of vision correction experience. Dr. Herschel is also well known for being detail oriented and a perfectionist. If that is the kind of eye surgeon you are looking for, you may be interested in Alma, RianeMary, and Meredith’s online posts.

At our center, he is your personal surgeon. You will see him on your first visit. He will personally examine your eyes, discuss all your options with you, perform your surgery, and see you on your post-operative visits until you graduate from his care. Dr. Herschel provides truly personal care to his patients. If personal care from your surgeon is important to you, learn what Karen, Kevin, and Sara experienced.

It is the combination of Dr. Herschel’s experience, expertise, and personal care and our center’s advanced technologies that enables our patients to achieve these outstanding outcomes. Of course, there are no guarantees that you will achieve these same results. But at Herschel LASIK, we will assist you in selecting the best procedure to achieve your vision goals, help you get your eyes in the best possible condition before surgery, and provide you with outstanding care after surgery, so you have the best chance to achieve your best possible results. Technology is not a substitute for experience, expertise, or personalized care; it is a partner.

If you needed back surgery, wouldn’t you go to a surgeon who specializes in the spine? Since vision correction surgery is done on the cornea, doesn’t it make sense to choose an ophthalmologist who specializes in vision correction and the cornea? (Two of our patients, Sara and Nick, explain how Dr. Herschel’s combination of vision correction and cornea specialties benefited them.) Similarly, wouldn’t you choose a surgeon for your spinal surgery that has many years of experience? Think about how important your eyes are to you. Wouldn’t you do the same for your eyes?

Dr. Herschel’s involvement with cutting-edge technologies goes well beyond LASIK. Advances continue to be made in other innovative vision correction technologies and surgical techniques. This requires an ongoing investment by our practice in equipment and training. Dr. Herschel is experienced in the latest FDA approved vision correction technologies and procedures, including all-laser LASIK; PRK; topography-guided LASIK/PRK; Visian ICL; Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) and Refractive Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery (ReLACS) with toric, multifocal, and aspheric intraocular lens (IOL) implant options; treatments for presbyopia, and Keratoconus treatments including corneal collagen cross-linking, Intacs® corneal implants, topography-guided PRK, and conductive keratoplasty.

At Herschel LASIK and Cataract Institute, you will have the opportunity to learn about the latest vision correction technologies available to you to achieve your vision correction goals before making your decision.

Those who know choose Herschel LASIK and Cataract Institute

Beautiful office. Amazing and caring staff. Getting my surgery done Saturday and the Doctor and the staff helped choose the right option for me and I didn't feel pushed to commit. One of the only few who commits the patient to a dry eye treatment as per my research. Post-surgery I hope to keep my 5 star rating because I have nothing bad to say!

I recently did my LASIK procedure about 1 week ago and was completely blown away from beginning to end with the SERVICE received from the entire staff at Herschel LASIK. The office is beautifully decorated and the staff was always professional, personable, knowledgeable and friendly. I particularly enjoyed the way that everything was explained clearly before, during and after my procedure and questions were always encouraged and answered. My experience was the best encounter to date with a physician. Excellent doctor + excellent support staff +excellent service = excellent experience and a happy customer. Thank you so much Dr. Herschel, Doris and Francesca.

Great service, sometimes a bit of a wait, but I take a full lobby as a sign of a well recommended doctor. Staff is friendly & quick to answerphones & squeeze me in when I got an eye problem. Would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting to get LASIK. Doctor even personally called to check on me the night after my procedure.

I got my LASIK procedure done here. I was apprehensive, mostly because anything to do with my eyes kind of freaked me out.
I went under a free consultation. The nurses/assistants were very nice and they answered any questions I had. Then I met Dr. Herschel and he was very nice and understanding. He explained all that would happen, how everything works, how long recovery will be, everything.
So, I agreed and start the process. I love the fact you always meet with Dr. Herschel at every appointment.
I now have 20/20 vision.
I'd highly recommend going to him for all of your vision needs.

Great surgeon and great staff. Do your research, Dr. Herschel is more than just a LASIK surgeon. He is certified and specializes in all areas of eye surgery so have peace of mind that you are getting one of the best. They use current technology and machines. More so, if your eyes aren’t ready for surgery he has no problem delaying 1-2 weeks until they are 100% good-to-go. He will not risk your health for the sake of money.
