Dr. Gold's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Gold "Dr. Jeffrey Gold is a Board-Certified Ophthalmologist with 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/PRK laser vision correction. Since 1997, he has limited his ophthalmology practice exclusively to Laser Vision Correction, having performedalmost 12,000 Laser Vision Correction procedures by mid 2017. 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". For six consecutive years (2008-2013) the U.S. Commerce Association has awarded Liberty Vision their "Best of Hamden" award. The New Haven Advocate Readers have voted Liberty Vision as The Best Place for LASIK in Connecticut for 2013, 2015, 2016 and 2017. Dr. Jeffrey Gold is a member of the Connecticut Society of Eye Physicians; a Fellow of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and a member of its Refractive Surgery Interest Group; a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons; a member of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, and the International Society of Refractive Surgery, and a Fellow of the American Society for Lasers in Medicine and Surgery."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by 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. You only have two eyes and you deserve personalized care by your surgeon!"
