DR. PARAG PAREKH, MD
Dr. Parekh is the area’s first Board Certified, Fellowship Trained LASIK Surgeon offering Bladeless “All Laser” LASIK. He has been a pioneer in this procedure, and was one of the first to perform Bladeless LASIK in Central and Western PA.
Perhaps even more importantly, he is exceptionally skilled in the latest surgical techniques for multiple forms of vision correction. Not everyone is the ideal LASIK candidate–some patients are well suited to LASIK, while others are better served by PRK, or ICL (implantable contact lens) or RLE (refractive lens exchange); you can rest assured that you’re getting the right treatment custom tailored to your eyes, giving you the best possible outcome.
