Gordon Weiss Schanzlin Vision Institute Celebrates Twenty Years of Vision Correction in San Diego

The Doctors at Gordon Weiss Schanzlin Vision Institute Are Dedicated to Providing Outstanding Eye Care Services for Their San Diego Ophthalmology Patients

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/03/13 -- In the late 1970s when the first Radial Keratotomy procedures were being performed in the United States, Dr. Michael Gordon dreamed of providing leading edge vision correction procedures. Less than a decade later, the San Diego LASIK surgeon performed the first excimer laser treatment to correct nearsightedness using the FDA-approved laser. In 1993, he founded Vision Surgery & Laser Center at the Aventine in San Diego. Shortly after, Perry S. Binder, MD joined the practice, along with David I. Geffen, OD.

Today, Jack L. Weiss, MD, David J. Schanzlin, MD, Michael Gordon, MD and David I. Geffen, OD are principles in Gordon Weiss Schanzlin Vision Institute, (formerly Vision Surgery & Laser Center). Together with Associate Surgeons, David J. Tanzer, MD, Alison N. Gordon, MD, Steven Schallhorn, MD, Vincent C. Fan, MD, Dorothy Wang, MS, OD, and Mitchell Brown, OD, the LASIK San Diego practice celebrates twenty years of advanced refractive and cataract surgery along with general ophthalmic care.

The Center is a sought after organization for clinical trials of new and exciting advanced technology for vision correction procedures. The doctors have been integral in promoting the science of treating, nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, presbyopia and cataracts. They have received the highest honors from their peers and from the International Society of Refractive Surgeons, American Academy of Ophthalmology, American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons and others for their contributions to the field of refractive surgery. They have published numerous papers and books on the subject and are frequent lecturers and medical consultants to the industry.

"We are proud to have doctors from around the world come to train with our surgeons and learn the latest techniques for vision correction procedures, including all laser custom LASIK, PRK, Corneal Crosslinking for Keratoconus, Implantable Collamer Lenses, Refractive Lens Exchange, laser refractive cataract surgery (LRx), and Intacs® corneal inlays," says Dr. Michael Gordon.

Gordon Weiss Schanzlin Vision Institute has performed over 75,000 refractive procedures for vision correction treatment. The organization's mission is to improve their patients' quality of life through surgery, contact lenses, and/or glasses. They strive to provide the best possible eye care and make each patient's visit the most pleasant of medical experiences. By utilizing world-class technologies, the physicians are capable of fully customizing individual treatment plans for optimum results.
