Soon after FDA approval of the excimer laser in 1995, he began performing laser vision correction in one of the first two laser centers in the United States to offer vision correction procedures using excimer laser technology, training under the direction of two of the leaders in the field until 1997.
Dr. Gold completed Mini-Fellowships in Refractive Surgery at the Casebeer Refractive Surgery Center, Johns Hopkins University, and the Cleveland Eye Clinic.
