Dr. Jeffrey D. Gold MD is a Board-Certified surgeon with over 45 years of experience in eye medicine and surgery with special expertise in laser technology.
Dr. Gold graduated from Kenyon College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1964. After receiving his medical degree from the University of Tennessee in 1968, he completed his ophthalmology residency at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas. After practicing for over 15 years in the New Haven, CT area as an Ophthalmologist, utilizing laser technology in treating eye disease since the early 1980’s, he moved to Salt Lake City, UT in 1991 where he perfected his Laser Vision Correction techniques.
(For those of you with long memories, he is the same Dr. Gold who practiced in New Haven, CT, on Sherman Ave., near The Hospital of St. Raphael. He had a beard and wore clogs!)
He returned to the New Haven, CT Area in a new practice in early 2003 excited to expand his laser expertise into the field of Laser Hair and Vein Removal. Ophthalmology was the first branch of medicine to use lasers extensively. The cosmetic use of lasers is a natural extension for a physician who has broad knowledge and experience in medical laser treatment.
“The Cutera CoolGlide® Xeo Laser allows me to provide all my patients with this extremely comfortable, fast and effective hair, vein, wrinkle and sunspot removal treatment,” he reports. “Unlike older technologies available, CoolGlide allows me to successfully treat more patients, not just those with lighter skin and darker hair. My patients, both men and women alike, really appreciate this new CoolGlide laser technology because it is fast and effective with minimal discomfort. In addition patients can return to their normal activities immediately; indeed some of them schedule their appointments for ‘lunch-hour’ procedures.”
As soon as Cutera introduced the new Titan skin tightening technology in 2004, Laser Body Solutions was the first practice in New England to embrace the technology. We have countless thrilled patients who have literally turned back the clock and enbraced growing older gracefully. As the body ages, Titan can reverse the effects of sun and gravity which cause sagging skin. With Titan, patients can enjoy a youthful and vigorous appearance.
Dr. Gold is a member of the Connecticut Society of Eye Physicians; a Fellow of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and a member of its Refractive Surgery Interest Group; a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons; a member of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, and the International Society of Refractive Surgery.

“I could never wear shorts or a bathing suit in the summer because of ugly spider veins on my legs since pregnancy. I had laser spider vein treatment last winter and I am looking forward to bathing suit season with anticipation instead of dread this year.”
