The Hagerstown LASIK Difference

LASIK is one of the most popular laser vision correction procedures performed in the United States. If you are considering having LASIK to reduce or eliminate your dependance on glasses and  contacts, consider New Vision Laser Center.

The New Vision Laser Center Difference

Dr. Robert Gladsden was the first ophthalmic surgeon in the Hagerstown area to specialize exclusively in refractive surgery. He was given the “VISX Star” award in 1999, placing him in the top 5% of refractive surgeons nationwide for volume of procedures.

Dr. Gladsden is dedicated to providing the best possible outcomes for his Hagerstown LASIK patients. He does this by  incorporating variables into his refractive technique that is unique to each patient. This customization, along with Dr. Gladsden’s constant evaluation of each individual patient outcome, ensures the best possible results. This is demonstrated by our remarkably high patient satisfaction rate.

The Council for Refractive Surgery Quality Assurance (CRSQA) is a nonprofit consumer/patient organization that evaluates a doctor based upon actual patient outcomes. A CRSQA certification affirms in an ongoing manner that a doctor is currently providing patient outcomes at or above the norm. Dr. Robert Gladsden is a CRSQA certified refractive surgeon.
