Ophthalmology Dr. Boxer Wachler is recognized as a pioneer in vision correction which includes LASIK, phakic intraocular lens (Visian ICL and Verisyse), presbyopia correction, and conductive keratoplasty. He is also known as a pioneer for keratoconus treatments which include Intacs, corneal collagen crosslinking with riboflavin (C3-R), and conductive keratoplasty. He has been honored with the Achievement Award and Secretariat Award from the American Academy of Ophthalmology as well as being voted into Best Doctors in America.
