Why Choose Dr. Braverman for LASIK or Cataract Surgery in South Florida?

It is an honor to be selected to be the doctor for a fellow doctor let alone a fellow eye doctor. Most refractive surgeons have not operated on even one fellow eye doctor. Dr. Braverman is proud to have been selected by many of his colleagues to be their surgeon on their own LASIK and/or cataract surgery. Please read a selection of testimonials from doctors here and here.

Many ophthalmologists perform LASIK and cataract surgery in Ft. Lauderdale and Miami, Florida, but Dr. Braverman stands out in his field as a top surgeon in the area. When choosing a surgeon, it is important to do your own research and be informed.

Dr. Braverman’s Vast Experience

In order to ensure that your LASIK or cataract surgery is as successful as possible, you will want to choose a surgeon with many years of experience performing the particular type of surgery you are receiving. Eye surgery is an art as well as a science. By performing the same procedure many, many times, a surgeon fine tunes his technique and nurtures his instincts. Doctor Braverman’s career as a Miami / Ft. Lauderdale LASIK and cataract surgeon spans nearly 30 years, helping thousands of patients achieve improved vision and end their dependence on glasses or contact lenses.

LASIK is generally a safe procedure. However, as with any type of surgery, complications do occur during LASIK procedures. Research has shown that the more procedures a surgeon performs, the fewer complications occur and the more effectively those complications are resolved. As a testament to Dr. Braverman’s skill and safety record, many physicians and their families have undergone LASIK performed by Dr. Braverman, including many optometrists.

As further evidence of his skill and experience, Dr. Stanley Braverman is board certified in ophthalmology, a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and a member of the Cornea Society. In addition, he is among the few ophthalmologists to serve as a Voluntary Assistant Clinical Professor at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, where he trains surgical residents. He is a member of many prestigious medical professional organizations, including American Medical Association, the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery and the International Society for Refractive Keratoplasty. In addition, Dr. Braverman has been frequently invited to speak at medical conferences regarding his cataract and LASIK surgery techniques.

Dr. Braverman’s Use of the Latest LASIK Technology

In addition to having substantial experience, it is also crucial that a LASIK and cataract surgeon utilize the latest, most advanced technology. When performing LASIK at the Ft. Lauderdale / Miami offices of Braverman Eye Center, Dr. Braverman uses the Allegretto Wave Eye-Q 400 excimer laser with Wavefront-Optimized technology. This technology allows Dr. Braverman to tailor the treatment to the individual’s needs and make minute changes to the cornea that correct the most minor imperfections.

The LASIK procedure involves the creation of a flap in the cornea. In traditional LASIK, this flap is made using a razor blade-like device called a microkeratome. However, Dr. Braverman now offers bladeless all-laser Z LASIK, in which a separate laser is used to create the flap. This technology allows for a safer procedure with more precise outcomes. Dr. Braverman’s laser surgical facility also features the Liebert System for separate humidity and temperature control. With these features, the Braverman Eye Center has helped many patients achieve 20/20 vision or better with LASIK as well as other laser surgeries such as PRK, LASEK and Epi-LASIK.

Precise Cataract Treatment at Braverman Eye Center

In addition to laser correction surgery, Dr. Braverman is well-known as an expert in cataract surgery. Dr. Braverman specializes in “small-incision” cataract and implant surgery. With one small incision, he is able to emulsify and remove the eye’s cataract-damaged natural lens and replace it with a premium intraocular lens (IOL). Dr. Braverman and his staff have performed more than 15,000 cataract surgeries with IOL placement for their Miami / Ft. Lauderdale cataracts patients.

The latest lens implants are all offered by Dr. Braverman, including ReZoom, ReSTOR, Tecnis Multifocal and Crystalens to correct vision at all distances. In fact, most of the newest lenses correct for presbyopia, the erosion of reading vision that comes with age. These lenses often allow cataract patients to see without glasses following surgery.

IOLs (lens implants) can also be used to treat patients who have presbyopia but do not need cataract surgery. For these patients, Dr. Braverman offers presbyopic refractive lensectomy, which makes use of the newest IOL technology and allows patients to see clearly at both near and far distances without glasses or contact lenses.
