Announcing The  Next Generation In LASIK Laser Vision Correction!

Maryland Vision Institute, (formerly Bergman Eye Center) is proud to be the first and only center in the region to offer LASIK patients the safety, precision and accuracy of the new Wavelight EX500 Excimer Laser. This advanced technology is helping set a new standard in LASIK laser vision correction. Offering ‘Perfect Pulse’ laser technology and treatment times averaging 10 seconds or less, the wait for the next generation in LASIK is over.

We are proud to combine our EX500 Excimer Laser technology with our LenSx Laser Cataract technology, which is helping reduce patient fears and anxiety and increase the precision and accuracy of cataract surgery. As one of Western Maryland’s leading eye care providers, we been providing comprehensive eye care and surgery for over 20 years. Our goal is to provide excellence in vision care with compassion.

The doctors at Maryland Vision Institute are very experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases and conditions such as glaucoma, diabetic eye care, eyelid problems, and dry eye as well as prescribing glasses and contacts.

On June 9, 2012 our founding physician, Dr. Erik Bergman passed away after a short battle with cancer. Dr Bergman was one of the top cataract surgeons in Maryland, having done thousands of surgical and laser procedures.

In October of 2012 Augustus “Gus” Stern, M.D, joined our practice as the new Medical Director. Dr. Stern, is a board certified ophthalmologist specializing in cataract, cornea, glaucoma, oculoplastic, refractive and LASIK surgery as well as general ophthalmology. He brings years of compassionate care and a history of vision excellence to our practice.

We strongly believe Dr. Stern will continue our legacy as one of Western Maryland’s leading eye care providers, and we warmly welcome him to the practice.

In 2008, Bergman Eye Center, now Maryland Vision Institute, opened Physician’s Surgery Center to provide patients with the very best in surgical and laser care.

Maryland Vision Institute continues to expand our services and technology to provide most advanced and excellent eye care available in the tri-state area.
