LASIK & Cataract Surgery Palm Desert
Many people go to NVISION Palm Desert for LASIK & Cataract surgery. Founded in 2001, the medical office is led by Richard Burns, M.D., who has performed more than 20,000 refractive and cataract procedures. Dr. Burns specializes in cataract surgery and is recognized as the top surgeon in the West Coast for implementation of the ReSTOR® lens.
Being in Palm Desert, the laser eye surgery center specializes in seniors, including both local residents and “snowbirds,” who are escaping colder climates for the warm desert winters. NVISION focuses primarily on cataract surgery and laser vision correction surgery for patients 45 years old and older. It also serves the military personnel based in Palm Desert for LASIK and other eye treatments, working closely with each patient’s commanding officer to accommodate his or her specific requirements. NVISION is the only laser vision correction center in the desert that works hand-in-hand with referring optometrists to ensure the best care for the patients. No matter the ages and specific eye conditions of the patients, it is the goal of the NVISION Palm Desert staff to present them with all the options for clear vision and the opportunity to eliminate bifocal and trifocal glasses.
With a focus on personalized attention to meet each patient’s unique vision correction needs, the Palm Desert laser eye surgery and vision correction center is a multi-specialty practice with a wide variety of services. The staff has helped thousands of patients of all ages improve and restore their eyesight with numerous refractive and corneal surgery procedures, including custom laser vision correction, LASIK, cataract surgery, and intraocular lens implants, including multifocal and accommodating implants.
NVISION Palm Desert stands behind the NVISION for Life® commitment.
