More about Rohr Eye and Laser Center

Dr. Jeffrey S. Rohr is the Medical Director and Chief Surgeon of the Rohr Eye & Laser Center. Each of the staff members has been handpicked and personally trained by Dr. Rohr to provide optimum patient care. For LASIK surgery, Dr. Rohr uses the most advanced wavefront guided excimer laser technology for "Personalized Laser Vision," the Zyoptix 217 Z flying spot excimer laser technology from Bausch and Lomb. This system provides a precise measurement of the corneal curvature and then creates a customized and individualized laser ablation profile to reshape the cornea. In addition to LASIK, Dr. Rohr also offers LASEK, PRK, AK, and CK (conductive keratoplasty to correct presbyopia) surgery to reshape the cornea and correct vision. Dr. Rohr also provides state-of-the-art, gentle, no-needle, no-stitch cataract surgery. Patients have several different lens options, including the most advanced multifocal IOL (intraocular lens) that simultaneously corrects for both near and distance vision after cataract surgery.

More about Dr. Rohr's Vision Procedures

Dr. Jeffrey S. Rohr is among the first ophthalmologists in the state of Michigan to offer the NearVision CK (Conductive Keratoplasty) procedure. CK is the first and only FDA-approved vision technology that improves near (reading) vision in the millions of Baby boomers with Presbyopia, the age-related eye condition that sets in after age 40.

NearVision CK uses radio waves to gently reshape the cornea and bring near vision back into focus. Minimally invasive and painless, NearVision CK is performed in less than three minutes in Dr. Rohr's office with only eye-drop anesthesia. The procedure is safe with no cutting and no removal of tissue. The first step in eliminating the dependence on reading glasses is to contact Rohr Eye & Laser Center to schedule a FREE eye care consultation with Dr. Rohr toll-free at 1-877-579-0202.
