Dr. Jeffrey Gold has over 45 years of experience in eye medicine and surgery with special expertise in laser technology. In fact, he is just one of only 13 ophthalmologists in the United States who specializes exclusively in Epi-LASIK laser vision correction. Since 1997, he has limited his ophthalmology practice exclusively to Laser Vision Correction, having performed over 11,000 Laser Vision Correction procedures by early 2015. Dr. Gold graduated from Kenyon College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1964. After receiving his medical degree from the University of Tennessee in 1968 he completed his ophthalmology residency at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas. After practicing in the New Haven area for over 15 years as an Ophthalmologist, utilizing laser technology in treating eye disease since the early 1980's, he relocated to Salt Lake City, UT in 1991 where he perfected his Laser Vision Correction techniques. Soon after FDA approval of the Excimer Laser in 1995 he began performing laser vision correction in one of the first two laser centers in the United States to offer the procedure. He worked in Salt Lake City from 1991 to 1997 and trained in laser vision correction between 1995 and 1997 under the direction of two of the leaders in the field. Dr. Jeffrey Gold completed Mini-Fellowships in Refractive Surgery at the Casebeer Refractive Surgery Center, Johns Hopkins University, and the Cleveland Eye Clinic. Between 1997 and 2000, he was one of three members of the team that developed the Yale Laser Center. He served as a member of both its Organizational and Medical Advisory Boards. As a former faculty member of the Ophthalmology Departments at Yale University and the University of Utah, he has authored and presented original research on laser surgery. He has personally had refractive surgery to correct his myopia, astigmatism and presbyopia, and has performed refractive surgery for his wife, daughter and two brothers and other immediate family members. For 5 consecutive years, he was honored as one of the “Top 100 Surgeons” by Laser Vision Centers, Inc., “for achieving excellence in refractive surgery.” Reaching one of the highest total individual case volumes ranked him among this elite surgeon group. In addition, the Consumers Research Council of America honored Dr. Gold as one of “America's Top Ophthalmologists” for 2004 – 2005. In 2007 and again in 2008 he received the same honor as one of the “Top 100 Surgeons” by Laser Vision Centers, Inc., “for achieving excellence in refractive surgery”.
