Dr. Richard Maw's Bio and Credentials

Richard Maw, M.D. is board-certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology, and he has performed over 21,000 LASIK procedures since 1999. He was fellowship trained at the Harvard Medical School and received his medical degree from the University of Iowa College of Medicine. Dr. Maw has been trusted to perform LASIK on friends, family, doctors, surgeons (including other eye surgeons), lawyers, military fighter pilots, commercial airline pilots, Olympic athletes, and professional athletes. He has also had LASIK himself. 

He has performed extensive research in ophthalmology and published numerous articles in peer review journals. He has presented dozens of scientific papers on LASIK to the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, the International Society of Refractive Surgery, and the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology. Dr. Maw was among the first doctors in the world to prove that using larger optical zones during LASIK reduces the occurrence of night glare, and one of the first doctors in the Northeast to perform LASIK for hyperopia and hyperopia with astigmatism. He has participated in FDA monitored clinical trials for LASIK for hyperopia, LASIK for hyperopia with astigmatism, and scleral expansion band placement for the reversal of presbyopia with Dr. Soloway at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary. 

"I am very proud to partner with LasikPlus. We are the number one LASIK provider in the state, and I am committed to keeping us number one!  We offer reasonable prices, convenient payment plans, state-of-the-art technology, a specialized staff, and a sub-specialized Optometrist (with unsurpassed experience and expertise). We are deeply committed to the safety of our patients, and to getting the best possible outcomes for our patients. We are great at LASIK, and we love doing it!”
