He has treated thousands of others using non-laser refractive surgery. This expert refractive eye surgeon is Board Certified and is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology where he serves on the Self-Assessment Committee, the International Society of Refractive Surgery, the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, and several other ophthalmology organizations.

Dr. Tauber is a practicing surgeon in the national Focus on Independence program, which provides free Lasik to quadriplegics. Dr. Tauber has written over 13 peer-reviewed scientific articles for ophthalmology journals, 2 textbook chapters, and has made over 20 presentations at major eye society meetings, earning him the respect of his peers. In addition, he is on the editorial board at Cataract and Refractive Surgery Today and Video Journal of Ophthalmology, as well as a reviewer of scientific articles for Cornea (an ophthalmology journal).
Dr. Tauber has the proven expertise to provide patients with the best care available when it comes to their vision. Dr. Tauber performs LASIK eye surgery and other laser eye vision and refractive procedures on patients with nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism (blurred vision), and presbyopia.

Dr. Tauber offers not just LASIK and PRK (laser eye surgery procedures), but RLE/CLE (lens implants), conductive keratoplasty, phakic implants, limbal relaxing incisions in order to provide patients a full range of options when it comes to finding the best procedure for them.
