Vivek Raizada ( M.D. )

Introduction


Vivek Raizada

Vivek Raizada, M.D. joined our practice in 2005. He serves our Southeast Texas community in general ophthalmology practice which includes no stitch cataract surgery with premium multifocal and toric lens implants, vision correction surgery, diabetic exams, and cosmetic eyelid surgeries. Dr. Raizada lives in Beaumont with his wife and enjoys spending time with family that lives nearby.

Vision Correction Surgery Background

Dr. Raizada  first became interested in Laser Vision Correction during his residency
training.  In 2004  his research in wavefront technology was recognized when he
was asked to present it at the American Society of Cataract and Refractive
Surgeons national meeting.  Today, in our onsite facility, the highly acclaimed
Custom LASIK, with a blade free Ziemer technique is his procedure of choice.  This
state-of-the-art technology combined with Dr. Raizada`s expertise and dedicated
staff, offer Southeast Texas residents an uncompromised surgical outcome.

New in the media is the Lifestyle Multifocal cataract surgery implants. Dr. Raizada
performs a no stitch cataract procedure and has been involved with the new
premium implants since their inception.  It is an exciting technology that allows
cataract patients to see near and far with reduced dependency on glasses.
Additionally, patients who have experienced astigmatism problems can have
cataract surgery to reduce distortion.

Another rewarding portion of Dr. Raizada`s practice is cosmetics.  Through
cosmetic procedures he helps individuals enhance their appearance and provide
better function.  An example of this is called ptosis.  Ptosis is a functional defect
characterized by drooping of the upper eyelid.  This drooping can block a patients
field of view, and must be removed to have an uninterrupted field of vision.  The
procedure can be performed in the office and has few restrictions for recovery.
Some lid procedures may be covered by insurance. Visual field testing will indicate
the level of severity.  Our insurance department will submit the results to the
patients medical insurance for determination of coverage.

Elective cosmetic procedures that Dr. Raizada performs are; correction of
unwanted age related changes, removal of unsightly blemishes or lesions of the
eyelids, and Botox.

Resume

Dr. Raizada received his Bachelors of Science Degree from Corrnell University and
then attended medical school at the State University of New York at Stony Brook
School of Medicine.  He completed his internship at the Mount Carmel Medical
Center, and completed his residency in Ophthalmology at the William H. Havener
Eye Institute, at the Ohio State University Medical Center in Columbus Ohio.
