About Us


Dr. Howard Adelson and Dr. Todd Adelson have built their practice ensuring patients needs are always their top priority.

In December 2013, they branched out and partnered with a national laser vision correction company, LasikPlus. They now are able to offer custom and blade-less LASIK in the comfort of their Northville office, rather than sending patients across town to a surgery suite. This allows the staff to be a part of all pre operative and post operative care as well as the surgery itself. They invested in the best laser on the market to ensure results. For senior eye health, they specialize in rapid recovery cataract surgery. For patients with significant astigmatism and cataracts, they use the latest intraocular lens implants, which allow for both distance and near vision without the need for glasses. Seniors having cataract surgery can now enjoy some of the same vision correction benefits produced by LASIK. The Adelson’s have earned the reputation of the “Doctor’s Doctors” as they have performed laser vision correction on local physicians and their families. You can currently hear their advertisements on many local radio stations in metro Detroit.
