Congratulations on making the decision to further educate yourself about LASIK! We want you to have all the information on this process and know our goal is to help you decrease your dependence on glasses or contact lenses.
Anderson and Shapiro Eye Care is a locally owned private practice. We pride ourselves in our commitment to serving others and our continuous strive to be on the cutting edge of technology. Our Doctors have collectively performed approximately 25,000 refractive procedures. Beginning with your initial consultation, continuing in to surgery, and checking you at your post-operative appointments, our surgeons will be the ones to see you every step of the way.
Dr. Michael Shapiro pioneered refractive surgery in Wisconsin by establishing the Refractive Surgery Clinic with Dr. C. Joseph Anderson. In fact, they were the first surgeons to perform LASIK in the state of Wisconsin over 20 years ago. Dr. Shapiro has performed LASIK on many staff members, close friends, and his two sons, one who is currently a commercial airline pilot, and the other while he was playing golf at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Dr. Nicole Anderson-Weiss obtained her fellowship in cornea and refractive surgery at Minnesota Eye Consultants in 2001, one of the best LASIK centers in the country. Since then, she has performed LASIK on many physician friends from the community, all of whom strongly rely on their eyesight for their professions.
It is important for you to understand LASIK is an investment- safety, outcomes and patient satisfaction should always be the deciding factor behind the center you choose, not the cost. We offer financing options to patients through CareCredit. Please take the time to fill out our LASIK self-evaluation to see if you qualify as a candidate. If you have any questions, please contact our clinic and speak with our scheduling coordinator. We are happy to help get you scheduled for your free consultation and/or answer any further questions you may have!
