What Do Patients Say About Dr. Joseph?
"Dr. Joseph is the finest physician I've ever met. He corrected my vision when other doctors had told me it was hopeless, performed cataract surgery and lens implants on both my parents, and consistently has gone above and beyond for us. As others have mentioned, you do need to be prepared to wait a bit -- but in exchange for your patience, you will get the best ophthalmic care of your life."
"Dr. Joseph has cared for my vision since approximately 1999. Yes, sometimes there is a significant wait to see him. What people obviously do not know about Dr. George is that he is one of the few in our area that is trained to handle critical emergencies in the Hospital ER. When I have to wait longer than expected, I am just thankful that I am not the emergency patient that he is seeing. No, I would not trade him for all the tea in China! I will continue seeing him. And I've had no issues with the staff either. They are very business-like and are very busy. What more could I ask?"
Before beginning the LASIK procedure, Dr. Joseph uses the wavefront computer-guided imaging system to identify each patient's vision errors. With this innovative technology, he can discern even higher order aberrations, the nearly invisible optic errors that other eye surgeons may miss. The laser eye surgeon then uses the diagnostic data gathered with the imaging system to calibrate the excimer laser. He will use the excimer laser during LASIK to reshape the patient's cornea(s).
The traditional LASIK procedure is simple and quick. Once Dr. Joseph is ready to start the procedure, he places anesthetic drops in the eye to ensure that the patient is comfortable throughout the process. To begin LASIK surgery, the surgeon employs a small surgical instrument that includes a thin blade, called a microkeratome, to create a flap on the outer surface of the cornea. Dr. Joseph carefully pulls back this flap to reveal the corneal tissue underneath. Then, he uses the calibrated excimer laser to re-sculpt the exposed tissue and correct the refractive error that is giving patients problems with near vision, distance vision or astigmatism.
The LASIK vision correction procedure typically takes about 15 minutes for both eyes and should not be painful. Most LASIK eye surgery patients notice a dramatic improvement in their vision immediately after the LASIK procedure. Many achieve 20/20 vision within a year following LASIK surgery, and can forgo wearing glasses or contact lenses.
