General Info:
A native of Wilkes-Barre, Dr. Steven Vale is a 1984 graduate of Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, PA. He received his Medical degree from The Medical College of Pennsylvania (now Drexel University School of Medicine) in 1988. Dr. Vale served his medical internship at Crozer-Chester Medical Center, Chester, Pennsylvania and completed his residency in internal medicine in 1991 at Pennsylvania Hospital, Philadelphia. He completed his residency in ophthalmology at Henry Ford Health Sciences Center in 1994 and a cornea, external disease and refractive surgery fellowship the following year at the Kresge Eye Institute, Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. Dr. Vale is specialty board certified in both Internal Medicine and Ophthalmology. Dr. Vale is the region's most experienced eye surgeon in the field of laser vision correction of refractive errors. He began performing PRK and LASIK in August of 1994, under the supervision of internationally renowned refractive surgery pioneer Fouad Tayfour, M.D., Director of the Windsor Laser Eye Institute, Windsor, Ontario, Canada. Dr. Tayfour was the first physician in North America to perform LASIK using the Summit Excimer Laser. Dr. Vale has performed over 16,000 laser vision surgeries since 1994. He is the author of the first retrospective cohort study of the use of LASIK to treat myopia, which was presented at the 1995 meeting of the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. He has also published numerous articles in the fields of corneal and external disease and refractive surgery.

Services/Products:
LASIK or Laser In-situ Keratomileusis treats nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism by removing tissue beneath the surface of the cornea to permanently re-shape the corneal curvature. PRK (photo-refractive keratectomy) is an advanced surface ablation procedure used to correct vision by reshaping the surface of the cornea, rather than the interior of the cornea (LASIK). PRK uses the same excimer laser as LASIK, but the procedure is performed on the surface of the cornea. With PRK, the epithelium (top skin layer) of the cornea is actually removed, and the laser is then used on the surface of the corneal tissue only. Monovision: As we all get older, our eyes begin to lose the ability to focus on images up close. We find ourselves moving images, such as newspapers farther and farther from our eyes in order to bring it into focus. The term used to identify this refractive error is presbyopia. Presbyopia is a condition that is common to everyone. Presbyopia is an aging process of the internal lens of the eyes, and typically begins around age 40 to 45. LASEK (Laser Assisted Sub-epithelial Keratectomy) is a relatively new eye surgery that is performed using an excimer laser to change the shape of the cornea. The cornea is the clear covering at the front of the eye. LASEK is ideal for people whose corneas are too thin for LASIK.
