Serving patients seeking laser vision correction including LASIK in Des Moines and the surrounding area

Richard Maw, MD, is a board-certified ophthalmologist with 15 years of experience, and has performed more than 13,000 LASIK procedures during this time. Dr. Maw is highly sought after by other eye surgeons, surgeons within other specialties, doctors, pilots, family and friends for his expertise in refractive surgery. Dr. Maw has also had LASIK surgery himself. The Des Moines LASIK surgeon was one of the first physicians in the world to prove that using larger optical zones during LASIK decreases the incidence of night glare. He was also among the first eye surgeons in the northeast to perform LASIK to treat hyperopia (farsightedness) and hyperopia with astigmatism. Along with Dr. Soloway at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, Dr. Maw has been involved in FDA-monitored clinical trials for the use of LASIK in treating hyperopia and hyperopia with astigmatism as well as sclera-expansion band placement for use in reversing presbyopia. He combines innovation with surgical skill to deliver exceptional vision correction results.

Each patient receives a unique combination of comprehensive surgeon training and experience, along with the best laser technology, a fifteen-year history of excellent vision stability, ultimate affordability, and the most extensive selection of financing plans.
