Technology alone is not enough, capability and good judgement has to be present. Recently Fichte Eye associates went through $1MM investment. That may sound all good, however if you are a patient don't forget to ask which doctor has the most share in the expensive equipment to keep the patient load going and consequently letting money (ROI) guide the surgeries they perform. Now my personal story, I had my lasik (twice with enhancement) done by Dr. Fichte nearly 10 years ago, as a result today I suffer from kerotoconus, I am sure he would understand what this means. I sound bitter because, after the operation I was not even seen by the operating surgeon (Dr. F) as a follow up, and I was passed on to an optometrist (Dr. Linda Shenkle), who then later (after few sessions) passed me on to a contact lens 'specialist' located behind a jewelry counter (really true) off main street in Williamsville. Now I look at my ORBSCAN, I ask why he even performed the surgery in the first place. As a matter of fact Dr. Fichte was orginally planning on performing PRK, then he changed his mind on the day of surgery to perform lasik. He actually ignored ORBSCAN thickness measurements, and relied on 'manual' thickness measurement using I belive an ultrasound instrument directly on the cornea as if he was more sofisticated than the machine to detect the thinist point on cornea using three points. There was clear evidence that this could have been avoided! I caution anyone getting lasik or any other treatment from Fichte.

I had laser eye surgery here and it was the best thing I have ever done. The surgery was quick and painless and I can see perfectly. The doctor had a supurb bedside manner and put me at ease with the surgery. The exam room was very clean and nice, and they allow patients to bring in a cd or music to listen to while they are getting the surgery done, so that they are sure patients are completely at ease. I would recommend going to them for anything, but especially if you are considering laser eye surgery- they are the best. Of course, they are expensive, but its totally worth it, you want the best when they are doing surgery on your eyes!

I had occasion to visit Fichte Eye Associates when a blood vessel in my eye burst while vomiting. I was scared to death and simply got in my car and drove to Fichte which is very close to my house. Obviously I did not have an appointment. While the office was very busy, a doctor took me in immediately when they saw how upset I was. After calming me down and reassuring me that my eye was, in fact, going to be okay, I was treated with eye drops and given a prescription. Because of the way I was treated that day, I subsequently became a patient of Dr. Fichte and have recommended him to friends and family.
