No More Glasses

In 1986 Dr. Julius Shulman became one of the first physicians in New York to perform surgery to correct nearsightedness. The development of the excimer laser has revolutionized the correction of nearsightedness, astigmatism and farsightedness, and now Laser Vision Correction has become a main area of concentration in his practice. Dr. Shulman’s second book, No More Glasses (iUniverse, 2007), reflects the goal of modern laser vision correction and has been completely revised to include the latest advances in laser technology.
