Dr. William Goldstein began his practice of general ophthalmology in 1994. He is a board-certified ophthalmologist. He was among the first surgeons in Michigan to perform LASIK surgery, with his first case in early 1996. His high success rate was quickly recognized by patients and other doctors. He is now considered one of the premier surgeons in the metro-Detroit area. His office is state-of-the-art, and his office staff is known in the area as extremely friendly, efficient and capable.
Dr. Goldstein has performed refractive surgery on surgeons, nurses, and many other health care professionals, and has rapidly established a reputation as a caring physician, with the ability to manage a wide variety of eye problems. By providing a unique combination of high tech surgical management and warm, personal patient care, he has gained the trust of patients and physicians alike. He is one of a new breed of ophthalmologists who place individual patient care above all else.
At the Laser Eye Care Center, Dr. Goldstein also continues to provide the latest in surgical management of cataracts. He is one of only 15% of surgeons in the country to provide the most modern form of cataract surgery, which combines a topical anesthetic with a “No stitch” incision. This technique, which is known as the clear cornea technique, is the fastest, safest method for cataract removal. Dr. Goldstein has been using this technique since 1995, making him one of the first to adopt this “needle-free, stitch-free, patch-free, and pain-free” method.
The Laser Eye Care Center relocated to a brand new building in 1998. The new office is in Shelby Township, Michigan, in the Harvard Professional Building. It includes a state of the art laser center for the care of glaucoma and diabetes. An in-office operating suite is used for RK and other surgical procedures, such as blepharoplasties and eyelid biopsies.
Dr. Goldstein is a proud alumnus of the University of Michigan pre-medical program. He completed medical school in 1990, graduating from Wayne State University with honors. After completing a year of internal medicine at Sinai Hospital, Dr. Goldstein completed a 3-year residency there, including a stint as Chief Resident. He is the recipient of two patient care awards, the Joseph Wahlers Award for Excellence in Patient Care, and the H. Saul Sugar Award for Education in Ophthalmology. In addition, he was recently selected as one of “America’s Top Ophthalmologists” by the Consumers’ Research Council of America. Dr. William Goldstein is on the Editorial Board for Eye Health Web.
