Dr. John Belardo

John Belardo, M.D. developed his interest in refractive surgery during his residency at Columbia University. During that time, Dr. Belardo had the opportunity to work with Dr. Trokel, who developed the excimer laser. After completing his three year residency, he went on to spend another year at the University of Rochester to work with Dr. Aquavella, a Harvard graduate, who was spearheading the research in the first excimer laser studies as a corneal fellow and instructor. Dr. Belardo’s corneal fellowship makes him one of only a few Corneal Specialists in Oklahoma.

After completing his fellowship, Dr. Belardo moved to Elk City, Oklahoma where he developed five offices in Western Oklahoma, performing cataract, refractive and plastic surgeries. After seven and a half years in Elk City, Dr. Belardo sold his practice to TLC and became one of their first LASIK surgeons. He, along with three other surgeons, performed the first LASIK in the state of Oklahoma.

Dr. Belardo has performed LASIK in Texas and Oklahoma working with several Laser Vision correction companies. He is the co-founder and surgeon of the Advanced Laser & Cataract Center. He was the very first to perform “no stitch-no patch” cataract surgery in Oklahoma. To date he has performed over 40,000 vision correction procedures.

Dr. Belardo also spends time doing mission work to help people by giving the gift of sight. He has been on mission trips to Africa, China, South America and the United States.
