Why Choose Atlanta Vision Cataract & Laser Center for LASIK surgery?

The reason so many people choose Atlanta Vision Center for their LASIK vision correction procedure is because Dr. Achiron and Dr. O’Day have over 20 years of medical ophthalmology experience and have performed and oversaw more than 80,000 LASIK procedures. They are experts in the field, deliver extraordinary results and use the latest in technology like the Zyoptix 100.

What is LASIK?

LASIK corrective eye surgery is an elective operation for people who wish to reduce or eliminate altogether their dependency on eyeglasses or contact lenses. In its most successful and purest form, LASIK is literally life changing. For example, it can instantly transform someone’s life who constantly searches for the soap after dropping it in the shower, strives to see their face while applying makeup, tries to see themselves in the mirror during a haircut, or can’t drive a car without the aid of glasses or contacts. These situations occur often across the globe, making LASIK the most popular elective operation performed on people throughout the entire world.

How LASIK Surgery is Performed?

Dr. Leonard Achiron and Dr. David O’Day are both board certified in optometry. Dr. O’Day has performed over 80,000 LASIK surgeries and Dr. Achiron has co-managed over 50,000 LASIK procedures. During LASIK surgery, the doctor will use a special surgical tool to create a circular, thin ‘flap’ in the eye’s cornea. He then folds back the flap in order to access the stroma (underlying cornea) and removes a bit of the corneal tissue with the use of an excimer laser. The highly innovative laser then utilizes an ultraviolet light beam to remove tiny microscopic tissue from the eye’s cornea to reshape it so it will focus light more accurately on the retina and therefore improve vision. For people who are nearsighted, the objective is to make the cornea flatter, while a steeper cornea is necessary for those that are farsighted.

Excimer lasers can also work to correct astigmatism in patients by smoothing out an irregularly shaped cornea into a more normal one. It’s a common misconception that LASIK procedures can’t effectively treat astigmatism.

What are the Benefits of LASIK Surgery?

LASIK has several amazing key benefits including the following:

  • People are amazed at how well LASIK works and are always surprised at how fast their vision is restored. Nearly 96 percent of all patients will regain their optimal vision immediately after LASIK. An enhancement will likely increase this number as well.
  • LASIK causes very little to no pain due to the doctor using numbing drops in either eye to make the patient completely comfortable.
  • Perfect vision is restored almost instantly or at least by the following day of receiving the procedure.
  • Following a LASIK procedure, the majority of patients have an enormous reduction to use either corrective eyeglasses or contact lens, while several patients no longer require them at all.
  • No stitches or bandages are necessary after receiving LASIK.
  • Further adjustments can be implemented after years of initially receiving the procedure in order to correct a patient’s vision if it alters while aging.
