Everything You Need To Know About LASIK by Dr. Richard GordonPomona, NY - Dr. Richard Gordon of Palisades Laser Eye Center is pleased to announce the publication and release of his new book, Everything You Need To Know About LASIK: A Patient's Guide to Refractive Surgery. Available as an ebook and in paperback on Amazon, Dr. Gordon's book tries to give prospective refractive surgery patients the information that they need to determine if LASIK is ideal for them.

"At Palisades Laser Eye Center, we always try to make sure that patients understand the risks, benefits, and side effects of LASIK," said Dr. Gordon. "Everything You Need To Know About LASIK is designed to give patients the experience of a consultation at the practice in book form."

What You Should Know About "Everything You Need To Know About LASIK"

Everything You Need to Know About LASIK was released on December 14, 2014 through Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP), and is also available in paperback through Amazon as well. The book offers a concise rundown of the LASIK surgery process, which is accomplished in five chapters. Dr. Gordon used his years of experience as a LASIK surgeon to ensure the book was written with patients in mind, avoiding dense, technical language that can make the basics of LASIK difficult to understand.

The book includes a number of illustrations to supplement the clear language and a careful breakdown of the LASIK process. The use of images in the book helps make concepts clear and improves overall understanding about what LASIK surgery involves and what it can achieve.

"After performing literally thousands of vision correction procedures in my career, I've come to understand the needs of patients in a very real and direct way," said Dr. Gordon. "I've revisited many of the questions and concerns from my actual LASIK patients when I wrote this book."

Everything You Need to Know About LASIK is available on amazon.com and amazon.co.uk.

Patient Education Remains a Key to Great Vision Correction

"If you want to know if LASIK is right for you, you need to have facts," Dr. Gordon added. "Knowledge is empowering for patients, and it's important for eye care professionals to help educate patients during each phase of treatment."

This commitment to patient care is present in Everything You Need To Know About LASIK, and Dr. Gordon makes it a cornerstone of care at Palisades Laser Eye Center.
