Message From Dr. Baker
“Welcome to Baker Vision. Recent additions to our office include a new glaucoma laser so as to provide safe, in-office treatment to lower intraocular pressure
and reduce dependence on daily glaucoma medications. We look forward to seeing you in 2023.”
Advanced Laser Surgery Treatment in Office Now Available!
We have invested in a Nd:YAG laser to provide excellent, safe care and convenience for our patients.
This laser is used to safely and effectively treat posterior capsule opacity after cataract surgery and narrow angle or angle closure glaucoma.
We are offering this service in our office in Mechanicsville, Virginia to provide convenient service for patients in Mechanicsville, Aylett, Tappahannock, and the Northern Neck.
Avoid driving into Richmond for your YAG laser!
Dr. Baker has performed thousands of these lasers during her career.
Most Nd:YAG lasers are located in hospitals or ambulatory outpatient centers.
By providing the advanced laser treatment in office, patients and their families can avoid hospital facilities during the COVID pandemic.
Lower Cost for laser in the office as compared to cost for the identical service in a hospital or ambulatory outpatient center.
You and your insurance company will be charged a facility fee in a hospital or ambulatory outpatient center.
You and your insurance company will not be charged a facility fee when your YAG laser is safely performed in the physician’s office.
This is especially helpful for patients who have high deductibles or who have not reached their medical deductible limit this year.
“My vision is to focus on patient happiness and care in a setting that provides more flexibility.”
