Casey Vision Correction Center provides premier patient care, including "All-Laser" or "Bladeless" LASIK and use of Wavefront Based ("Optimized") LASIK and PRK. Dr. Mathers offers laser eye surgery procedures, including LASIK and PRK, as well as limbal relaxing incisions, Clear Lens Exchange and cataract lens implants procedures to provide patients a full range of options when it comes to choosing the procedure that can best help them attain better vision.

"Dr. Mathers has very impressive credentials with over 100 peer reviewed papers and multiple presentations at meetings and we are honored to have him representing our Trusted LASIK Surgeons directory in the Portland area. The Casey Eye Institute was among the first Academic centers to participate in FDA studies of Laser Vision Correction in the early 1990's," stated James J. Salz, M.D., Chief Executive Officer of Trusted LASIK Surgeons.
