Meet Dr. Duplessie
An extraordinarily experienced corneal surgeon and pioneer in the field of LASIK surgery, I am able to offer informed, personalized analysis and treatment for every patient.
I recognized the life- changing potential of LASIK early in my career and have since been on a mission to provide people with the gift of perfect vision.
I popularized the term LASIK. Organizing the first United States LASIK course, during which none of the world’s top 25 corneal surgeons mentioned LASIK over 64 talks. I convinced them the only way forward was LASIK.
My book on the course included the first textbook chapters on myopic and hyperopic LASIK.
Approximately 700,000 LASIK procedures are now performed annually, making it one of the most common surgeries in the United States.
Pioneer in Corneal Transplantation
I was one of the first surgeons to offer lamellar corneal transplantation, sutureless corneal transplantation. And, when I wrote, ‘Lamellar Keratoplasty’, the first textbook chapter on modern lamellar corneal transplants, I anticipated and recognized this innovation would become the most popular form of corneal transplantation.
Years ahead of other American doctors
My most recent book chapter was on ‘Excimer and Femtosecond LASER for Treatment of Presbyopia’, years ahead of the FDA approval of the lasers.
Importantly, I have always integrated charity into my business models. I developed a clinical integration program with Waterloo University (Canada); the addition of fifteen volunteer Canadian eye doctors per year enabled me to become one the largest private donators of medical and surgical charity in the US between 2000-2013.
I am passionate about what I do and am thankful every day that I have found my calling in a profession which enables me to have a direct and positive impact on people’s lives.
