Dr. Richard Rothman




Wavelight Allegretto: The Most Advanced Laser System.

Richard Rothman, MD, is a board-certified ophthalmologist who has committed his practice of ophthalmology primarily to the specialty of Laser Vision Correction. He feels strongly about the life-changing potential of LASIK and other new specialized vision correction techniques. Dr. Rothman has performed nearly 24,000 LASIK and PRK procedures and, as an innovator in the field, has helped spearhead new advancements in corneal surgery during the last 20 years. While a research fellow at Harvard Medical School, he co-developed a specialized instrument for corneal surgery. He was also one of the earliest certified excimer laser surgeons in Northern California in 1995. Patients have traveled from around Nevada and the Western United States to have their eyes treated by Dr. Rothman.

The goal of Dr. Rothman and his staff is to provide the highest quality care to each of their patients using the newest technology while also offering more affordable options for vision correction. We also offer the NearVision CK procedure, a non-laser technique for the correction of reading vision. Dr. Rothman's comprehensive experience and training, combined with state-of-the-art technology, are the reasons why his patients say that this practice is Nevada's # 1 LASIK experience.

To reduce or eliminate your dependence on glasses, contact lenses, or reading glasses, please contact us at (888) 498-2020 to schedule a consultation.

What Dr. Rothman's Patients Are Saying

"Dr. Rothman truly changed my life. Before he performed my LASIK laser vision correction, I hassled constantly, first with glasses and later with contacts. Now whether I'm hiking, golfing or hitting the gym, I'm free. Plus, I have 20/15 vision – far better than what I had before. There's a reason thousands of people come to see Dr. Rothman for LASIK. He's the best." — Annette Macchia, ReMax Real Estate Agent
