Learn about Dr. Gold
We warmly welcome you to Dr. Jeffrey Gold's laser eye surgery center, Liberty Vision. Located in Hamden, Connecticut, this state of the art establishment was founded by Dr. Gold in 2003 to provide safe, life changing laser vision correction procedures.
By mid-2017 he had performed almost 12,000 successful procedures! Dr. Gold is an award-winning surgeon and is considered a super-specialist in his field. There are only 13 ophthalmologists in the United States who exclusively perform the most state-of-the-art laser vision correction procedure called Epi-LASIK or PRK.
What makes Liberty Vision unique is that Dr. Gold cares for his patients from the initial screening right through post-operative care. Most vision correction practices in Connecticut use technicians to do the pre and post-operative care, and the patient only meets the surgeon on the day of the procedure, moments before surgery.
