At Feinerman Vision, we believe that knowledge is the best resource to help you make the best decision for yourself. So here are three things you should look for in a LASIK facility:

Dr. Feinerman uses the advanced technology of the Ziemer femtosecond laser due to the numerous advantages it offers over older technologies.
- Positive reviews
The best way to learn more about a surgeon and their facility is to do your homework! Read online reviews and talk to family, friends, and coworkers. Talk to other people who have had LASIK about their experiences and find out what they liked or disliked about the procedure.
- A surgeon you can trust
You should look for a surgeon who is licensed and board certified. Both these things can be easily verified online. You should also be able to meet with your surgeon during your consultation before the procedure. This is where you can find out how many procedures they have performed and how their complication rate compares to the national average.

Cataract surgery is the most common procedure performed in the United States, with over three million surgeries performed every year. But many people are still very unfamiliar with cataract surgery and everything that is involved in the procedure.
A cataract forms when the lens of the eye, which is normally clear, becomes cloudy. Cataracts cause your vision to blur, making it difficult to drive at night and enjoy your daily activities. Cataracts are a natural part of the aging process and can develop even if you have 20/20 vision. Fortunately, cataracts are very treatable with cataract laser surgery.
A common question we receive is, “How do I know if I need laser cataract surgery?” This answer will be different for everyone depending on your personal situation but in general, once your cataracts begin to interfere with your lifestyle it may be time to consider surgical options.
During the surgery, your doctor will use a blade to make a small incision in your eye and remove all of the abnormal proteins. The surgeon will then insert an artificial lens to restore your vision. After the surgery, you will be fitted with glasses or contacts if necessary.
The risk for cataract surgery is incredibly low – less than one percent of people develop serious complications as a result of the surgery.
If the idea of a blade-free approach to cataract surgery excites you, then you might be an excellent candidate for laser cataract surgery. Laser cataract surgery is the most technologically advanced option for cataract surgery. The femtosecond laser is heatless and bladeless so the recovery time is faster. The procedure is more precise and it takes less than 15 minutes to complete.
We know that being diagnosed with cataracts can feel scary but thankfully, the field of cataract surgery continues to evolve. At Feinerman Vision, we are committed to providing you with the most advanced technology so you can have the easiest, most seamless surgical experience possible.
