    "Dr. Andrew Caster performed Lasik surgery on me, and I haven't had to break out my playing glasses since. But every couple of days, I still have people come up to me and say, "Hey, didn't you used to wear glasses?"

    "Playing without contact lenses for the first time in 16 years is such a relief. From tee to green my perception is clearer and I can read the greens better than ever before. I decided to have Lasik after hearing from other professional golfers. I did my homework and found Dr. Caster to be the very best Lasik surgeon."

A Note from Dr. Caster

Lasik laser vision correction is one of the great medical advances of our time, when performed on the appropriate person in the proper way. Though you have lived with poor eyesight for years, you can now have this painless five-minute treatment and walk out minutes later seeing well with your own eyes, without glasses or contact lenses. The treatment is an incredibly liberating and emotional experience. There is really no other medical procedure which combines such a profound improvement with lack of pain and very rapid recovery.


My own nearsightedness and astigmatism were corrected with Lasik in 1996, and I have enjoyed wonderful eyesight ever since. I have been an ophthalmologist for over twenty-five years, and for the past fifteen years I have dedicated my practice exclusively to Lasik laser vision correction. During this time I have performed over 30,000 treatments. I am one of the very few doctors in the United States who focuses his practice completely within this specialty. This extreme specialization is one of the keys to our great results. When you apply all of your talent and energies to one narrow speciality, you learn how to do it very, very well.


No one has technology that surpasses us. We have several different lasers to choose from, including our favorite, the WaveLight Allegretto. We perform all variations of laser vision correction, including Lasik, IntraLase, PRK, and Lasek. All treatments at the Caster Eye Center use the latest Custom wavefront technology.


Laser vision correction is not right for everyone. We will only perform your treatment if we are confident that we can obtain excellent results. We advise 30% of our patients not to have laser vision correction, because they are not ideal candidates. If a different procedure is more appropriate for you, we will refer you to a top specialist in that particular technique.


One of the most important aspects of medicine is the caring approach of the doctor. A doctor who really cares will spend time talking to the patient, answering each and every question. The truly caring doctor will use only the best equipment, will be extremely meticulous in all aspects of measurement and treatment and will insist on having only superbly-trained staff. Each member of our staff has been at Caster Eye Center a minimum of ten years; our laser technician has worked with me for over twenty years. This staff loyalty and experience is so critical to our very high quality assurance and allows us to provide the most personalized service available anywhere. When you speak with us, when you visit our office, and when you have your treatment, you will see the experience and the caring attitude. And you will appreciate the difference each and every day as you enjoy your new vision. This is truly a life-changing experience.


Sincerely,
Andrew I. Caster, MD, FACS
