I determine if it is safe to have laser vision correction. I prepare the laser plan and do the laser treatment. And I do all the post-operative examinations. I don't delegate those important details to non-physicians. I think you can get better results that way

"Bill has always been at the forefront in the field of refractive surgery and he is one of only a handful of surgeons to perform the classic Barraquer techniques of keratomileusis and epikeratophakia These complex techniques laid the foundation for modern LASIK surgery which only became possible with the introduction of the excimer laser."
"I determine if it is safe to have laser vision correction. I prepare the laser plan and do the laser treatment. And I do all the post-operative examinations. I don't delegate those important details to non-physicians. I think you can get better results that way," said William Schlichtemeier M.D. "The nurses have accused me of being too particular. There are probably worse things to be accused of."
