Dr. John A Vukich has the following 1 specialty
An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

After wearing glasses and contacts for 25 years and considering lasik I was informed that a better option was available through Dr. Vukich which I accepted. Now that 5 years have passed since the surgery I have 20-20 vision with no more glasses or contacts. I am very satisfied with my choice and I selected Dr. Vukich because of the time he took to help me make a better decision.
My experience with Dr. Vukich and importantly my outcome was exceptional. I had LASIK in both eyes 12 months ago and I just completed my one year follow up. Before I decided on Dr. Vukich to do my surgery I researched every surgeon within 100 miles of my home and his name kept coming up as the best. Now I see 20/15 and am so glad that I took the time to find the right surgeon.
I had my laser surgery in 1999, and have since learned that the reason for my failure is I was out of contacts only 3.5 weeks after being in contacts for 17 years. I should have been out at least 2 months. Had Dr. Vukich known this, or followed this guideline, I likely could have had success. But, my eyes are a "mess" as quoted by one doctor, and there is no solution on the horizon. My prescription changes twice a year, I can't see as well as before the surgery and can no longer be fitted to 20/20 in glasses. Please let Dr. Vukich know he needs to have people our of contacts one month for each decade of contact wear. Lasik surgery with Dr. Vukich is the worse mistake I ever made, and I would take my old eyes back if I could.
