Dr. Casey has performed thousands of eye surgeries across five continents in the last three decades. His background as a comprehensive ophthalmologist has provided him a platform to continually develop his refractive surgery skills as this sub-specialty has become increasingly complex. “Today, refractive surgery involves so many different procedures that it is absolutely mandatory to evaluate the patient seeking vision correction in a systematic and comprehensive manner,” Dr. Casey explains. “Since important new procedures are being developed every year, the surgeon must continue to acquire new skills in order to have the excellent results. The surgeon must also inquire carefully to fully understand a patient’s lifestyle, goals and expectations.” Dr. Casey’s patients understand not only which procedure is best for them, but why it is the optimal choice as well.
Dr. Casey is constantly striving to improve his cataract patients’ outcomes so they can obtain superior results. Cataract patients choose Dr. Casey because he fully embraces every aspect of modern day technology: premium intraocular lenses, intraoperative aberrometry, femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery, sophisticated outcomes analysis and nomogram refinement. “This approach does not yet eliminate, but lessens the likelihood for, post-cataract laser vision correction touch-ups.”
“But it is not only results, but the patient’s overall experience, that truly sets us apart”, Dr. Casey adds. The process begins with unparalleled teamwork, cooperation and communication. This sets up the experience to be life-changing for the patient. The same principles of patient centered customer service that are seen in some LASIK practices are applied to all patients referred to NVISION Las Vegas. “We have achieved our goal when the patient, family members and affiliate optometrists express nothing short of utter amazement by the quality of service they experience.”
After receiving his medical degree from the University of Miami School of Medicine, Dr. Casey went on active duty with the United States Air Force. He completed his internship at David Grant Medical Center and his residency at Wilford Hall Medical Center. After serving as the Chief of Ophthalmology at RAF Lakenheath, England, and Michael O’Callaghan Federal Hospital at Nellis AFB, NV, Dr. Casey joined Nevada Eye Care.
Dr. Casey’s commitment to help stem the worldwide cataract epidemic takes him to countries such as Honduras, Namibia and Mexico, to orchestrate missions with the United States Air Force, Global Eye Care and Medical Ministries International.
