Meet Your Surgeons
At OptiVision Eye Care you have not only one, but three Board certified, highly skilled and experienced surgeons.
Let’s begin with Dr. Stephen Dudley who has lived in Oshkosh for over thirty six years. He performed the very first laser vision correction procedure in Wisconsin in 1991. He was also the primary investigator during FDA trials of the Visx excimer laser. He then became one of only three surgeons assigned as a certified trainer of other LASIK doctors in the state of Wisconsin.
Dr. Dudley is also a successful and well known cataract surgeon and even performed the first YAG laser treatment for cataracts in the state. He is a member of numerous societies and organizations like the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons and the American Medical Society just to name a few. He is a premier surgeon and one of the early pioneers of LASIK surgery. When you visit, be sure to ask him about his experiences as a race car driver here in the US and overseas.
Next is Dr. Gerald Clarke who attended the University of Notre Dame and then graduated first in his class at Loyola University School of Medicine. He is an accomplished LASIK and cataract surgeon who yearly visits Honduras to perform cataract surgery on those who otherwise would go through life with limited vision. Dr. Clarke is also a member of numerous organizations. He is another one of our doctors who has fascinating interests: he loves to dance and has even published a science fiction book.
Gerald P. Clarke, M.D., is a board certified ophthalmologist and founding partner of OptiVision Eye Care & Laser Centers. He specializes in refractive and cataract surgery, glaucoma and laser vision correction. An accomplished surgeon, Dr. Clarke utilizes the most advanced technology and techniques to surgically correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Dr. Clarke has performed thousands of cataract and refractive procedures for patients throughout Wisconsin. Dr. Clarke is a national leader in advanced cataract surgery and one of the first surgeons in the state to offer patients “no-drop” laser-assisted cataract surgery.
Great Surgeon = Great Results
Just like you would want the best heart surgeon if you needed surgery, so it should be with your eyes. There are those who think any surgeon can run the laser and give you the great results you want from LASIK. Not true! In order to achieve the clear crisp vision you are seeking, you must select an experienced and skilled surgeon to perform your surgery.
Once all your pre-operative tests are taken, they must be reviewed, interpreted and small changes might need to be made to give you the vision you want. You want an experienced LASIK doctor making these all-important decisions. Don’t short change yourself, pick only the best.
