Denver, CO (PRWEB) February 17, 2009
Trusted LASIK Surgeons announced today that Doctor Lawrence Spivack has been listed in the Trusted LASIK Eye Surgeons Directory, an informational resource for consumers seeking vision correction surgery procedures like LASIK and a highly qualified refractive surgeon to perform their surgery. Dr. Spivack's practice, Spivack Vision Center, serves patients seeking vision correction through laser vision eye surgery procedures like LASIK in Denver, Centennial, Highlands Ranch, Littleton, Aurora, and Boulder. Spivack Vision provides complete eye care and treats patients with laser eye surgery, including LASIK and other refractive surgery procedures throughout Colorado.
The Trusted LASIK Surgeons directory lists only those LASIK eye surgeons who are among the best in the United States. To do so, Trusted LASIK Surgeons screens each surgeon based on experience, premier patient care, and professional credentials. In Trusted LASIK Surgeon's opinion, Dr. Spivack's professional achievements place him among the top LASIK eye surgery experts and refractive surgeons in the United States.
Dr. Lawrence Spivack has over 25 years of experience performing refractive eye surgery and was among the first surgeons to perform Radial Keratotomy procedures in the state of Colorado. (Radial Keratotomy or RK is the precursor to laser vision correction surgery procedures such as LASIK and PRK). He has over 13 years of experience in LASIK surgery and has performed over 40,000 laser vision correction procedures. Dr. Spivack was the first eye surgeon in Denver, CO to be certified by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to perform PRK and was the first eye surgeon to do LASIK eye surgery on an FDA-certified laser in Colorado. He was also the first eye doctor in Denver to be certified in Crystalens, a cataract replacement lens which corrects cataracts and gives patients a full range of vision by flexing like the eye's natural lens.
Doctor Spivack has published several articles for major peer-reviewed and non-peer reviewed professional publications in ophthalmology. He has given lectures in the field of refractive eye surgery at national, regional, and local eye meetings. Trusted by VISX, Inc. (VISX), a manufacturer of lasers, he has been designated a nationally certified trainer for instructing other laser eye surgeons in the use of VISX lasers for vision correction surgery. As his experience ably demonstrates, Dr. Spivack has the knowledge and skill patients can trust to provide them with the highest standards of eye care available when it comes to improving their vision.
Dr. Spivack treats patients with laser vision correction procedures including LASIK eye surgery, as well as refractive eye surgery procedures for patients with nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism (blurred vision), and presbyopia. His practice, Spivack Vision, based in Denver, Colorado, provides premier patient care, including: (a) use of IntraLase system for "All-Laser" or "Bladeless" LASIK, (b) use of Wavefront Based ("Custom") LASIK and PRK, and (c) iLASIK procedure, which includes WaveScan Technology, IntraLase, and Visx Advanced CustomVue treatments. Dr. Spivack offers not just LASIK and PRK (laser eye surgery procedures), but other procedures like RLE/CLE (lens implants), phakic implants, limbal relaxing incisions, and cataract lens implants procedures to give patients a full range of options when it comes to selecting the right procedure.
Patients who have had significant problems with LASIK eye surgery or another vision correction procedures performed by another surgeon have come to Dr. Spivack to manage and treat their vision complications. Doctor Spivack is often chosen by other eye surgeons, optometrists, opticians, employees of companies that specialize in refractive eye surgery instrumentation or their family members to perform their LASIK eye surgery or other refractive eye surgery procedure.
A certified ophthalmologist by the American Board of Ophthalmology, this highly qualified eye surgeon is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the International Society of Refractive Surgery, and the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery. Locally, Dr. Spivack is a member of the Denver Medical Society and the Colorado Society of Eye Physicians and Surgeons.
Lawrence Spivack, M.D. has been honored by both industry professionals and by the media. VISX awarded him the Star Award multiple times for laser vision correction surgery. KCNC in Denver honored him with the "Best LASIK Doctor" award. Dr. Spivack was voted by 5280 Magazine as "Best LASIK Doctor" four years in a row.
Dr. Spivack's dedication to improving vision for others who do not always have the means to afford exceptional eye care is nowhere more evident than the free LASIK eye surgery program for Iraq and Afghanistan veterans of the armed forces, generously sponsored by the doctors and staff at Spivack Vision Center. Dr. Spivack also co-founded the Denver Rescue Mission Eye Clinic, providing eye care for the homeless. In addition, he is a staff member for the Stout Street Medical Center for the Homeless and a Board Member of the Colorado Cancer League and the Tragedy Assisted Program for Survivors.
"Dr. Spivack is among the most experienced refractive surgeons in Colorado," noted James J. Salz, M.D., Chief Executive Officer of Trusted LASIK Surgeons. "He was one of the first to report a series of cases of 'diffuse lamellar keratitis' at a major eye meeting, before this unusual complication of LASIK eye surgery was completely understood. Dr Spivack was also an early advocate of using the IntraLase to create LASIK flaps. We are extremely pleased to have him become the first eye surgeon listed in the Trusted Lasik Surgeons Directory."
"It is such an honor to be entrusted with a patient's vision," said Lawrence Spivack, M.D., of Spivack Vision Center. "The joy they share when they can see is so overwhelming."
