Helping patients seeking laser vision correction in Hamden and the surrounding area
Jeffrey D. Gold, MD, FACS, is a board-certified ophthalmologist with more than 45 years of experience in eye surgery and special expertise in laser technology. He is one of the leading refractive surgeons in Connecticut and has performed more than 10,000 LASIK procedures and more than 1,000 Epi-LASIK procedures. Dr. Gold underwent radial keratotomy (RK) surgery himself in 1992, and through this experience he gained a deep appreciation of the patient perspective. Since then he has performed laser vision correction on numerous family members.
Dr. Gold’s record of excellence has earned him several coveted awards. For five consecutive years he was honored as one of the “Top 100 Surgeons” by Laser Vision Centers, Inc. “for achieving excellence in refractive surgery.” Reaching one of the highest total individual case volumes ranked him among this elite surgeon group. In addition, he has been named one of “America’s Top Ophthalmologists” by the Consumers’ Research Council of America.
Dr. Gold believes that personal attention and communication are the keys to a successful vision correction treatment, and he takes time to personally address all of his patients’ concerns and questions. His vision care philosophy is strongly rooted in the belief that the patient and the surgeon should work as a team. To help achieve optimal vision correction outcomes and patient satisfaction, Dr. Gold personally performs all screenings, surgical planning, surgery and postoperative care. Each patient receives extensive information about his or her condition and the treatment options available, including a thorough discussion of possible complications. This approach alleviates patients’ anxiety and helps Dr. Gold develop individualized treatment plans.

More About Vision Correction at Liberty Vision
Dr. Gold and his entire team at Liberty Vision are committed to providing exceptional patient care by combining the latest advances in laser vision correction technology with a warm yet professional attitude. This is why so many doctors and other health care professionals choose Dr. Gold as their own laser vision correction surgeon. As a testament to Liberty Vision’s reputation for excellence, the U.S. Commerce Association has awarded the practice with the “Best of Hamden” award for six consecutive years (2008–2013).
Dr. Gold’s extensive experience, training and skill allow him to confidently perform an array of vision correction treatments, including traditional LASIK, wavefront-assisted custom LASIK and Epi-LASIK. The latter is a blade-free procedure where a special device called an epikeratome is used to separate the outermost layer of the cornea. Then, the excimer laser is applied to reshape the cornea so that it can properly refract light rays and improve vision. Due to the fact that the Epi-LASIK method detaches a significantly thinner layer of cornea than the traditional LASIK procedure, Dr. Gold is able to offer Epi-LASIK to patients whose thin corneas would otherwise disqualify them from LASIK treatments. Because of its dramatically enhanced safety profile, Epi-LASIK has become Dr. Gold’s procedure of choice for vision correction.
To enhance safety and further improve the results of laser vision correction surgery, Dr. Gold only performs wavefront-guided CustomVue laser treatment with AMO WaveScan technology, iris registration and the state-of-the-art VISX STAR S4 excimer laser. This technological breakthrough allows him to create a 3D map of the eye detailing the irregularities that go undetected in traditional laser vision correction scans. By using this map when programming the excimer laser, Dr. Gold is able to achieve a very precise and highly customized vision correction treatment. He also performs the newly FDA-approved Custom MonoVision Epi-LASIK procedure.
