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 and removal of unsightly blemishes or lesions of the eyelids.

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.
