Lasik surgery

Stephen G. Slade, MD, FACS

In a new interview by Cataract & Refractive Surgery Today (CRST) this April, our founder and amazing surgeon, Dr. Stephen Slade opens up about everything from being the first surgeon to perform LASIK and Laser Cataract Surgery, to being a father to 2 girls.

We often speak about the amazing ‘firsts’ that Dr. Slade and our practice have.  Perhaps even more importantly, however, is our dedication to patients first.  Caring for our patients is more important to us than the excitement of new technologies.  As such, we say no to a LOT of new things.  Dr. Slade has built his reputation on making the RIGHT decisions for new technologies.

This is an open, honest and heartwarming interview that we think all of our patients would love to read. Especially knowing so much about Dr. Slade’s accomplishments, this is such a great read and proof of his humility.

We know deep down that the reason he has been chosen for so many “firsts” was NOT luck or being in the right place at the right time, he has really earned his incredible reputation in the field and doctors line up to hear his recommendations based on his extensive experience with so many ophthalmological devices, surgical techniques and clinical trials.

What he shares about raising girls and teaching them about how to be loyal to their friends, the simple things in life, we will leave for you to enjoy. It’s so refreshing for us to read a successful surgeon’s take on what’s important in life and raising a good person. These items are never included in other articles about corneal & refractive surgery so we think CRST & BMC did such a great job here.
