Woolfson Eye Institute’s founder and medical director Dr. Jonathan Woolfson is a board-certified ophthalmic surgeon who has performed more than 70,000 laser vision-correction procedures. Such clinical experience has helped him earn the trust of other medical professionals; he has performed more than 300 surgeries on his fellow eye doctors and trained and certified more than 100 North American LASIK surgeons. He has also fine-tuned the eyesight of professional athletes, including Ovie Mughelli, Curtis Lofton, and Kroy Biermann of the Atlanta Falcons.
Dr. Woolfson draws upon this extensive experience each time he customizes a laser procedure to his patients’ needs. He and his staff of doctors begin every treatment with in-depth consultations, where they determine the lasers, instruments, and novelty sound effects needed to successfully enhance eyesight. Once they’ve completed their procedures, they also offer eligible patients a Lifetime Assurance Plan, granting them free lifetime access to any fine-tuning surgeries.
Backed by an impressive success rate and more than a decade of experience, Dr. Stewart improves vision using LASIK techniques and other eye-correction alternatives. With the help of his team, Dr. Stewart offers eye exams, showcases a retail selection of glasses and sunglasses, and employs minimally invasive surgery to end clients’ reliance on lenses. Expanding into the surrounding ocular area, the doctor also performs cosmetic procedures including Botox and Latisse. Bamboo shades and creamy, earth-toned décor soothe eyes and their owners as soon as they walk or roll into treatment rooms.
The whole family is welcome at Premiere Eyecare, where optometrist Dr. Brent Fry and staff not only treat eyes but share "a few jokes" in the process. Their services include preventive and family care as well as infection and disorder management. They also prep patients for donning a pair of the boutique's glasses by administering prescription exams. Dr. Fry continually attends professional seminars to make sure he stays abreast of the latest developments in his field. The office’s website features educational resources and can take requests for appointments as well as confirm and change them.
Within the broad realm of ophthalmology, Dr. David Nelson specializes in dramatically improving his patients’ vision with cataract, LASIK, and lens-implant surgeries. Dr. Nelson, who works alongside Dr. Nima Mazhari at Carolina Eye Cataract & Laser, divides his time between treating patients at the practice he founded and sharing his expertise. His work has been published in ophthalmology journals and he has lectured at national conferences.
Recognized as a top ophthalmologist by the International Assocation of Healthcare Professionals, Dr. Nelson aims to correct conditions such as astigmatic corneas or myopic vision with anything from laser eye surgeries to corrective-lens prescriptions. He identifies these problems using a Pentacam diagnostic tool, which gives a three-dimensional view of an eye from 25 angles.
Dr. Wesley D. Clement has been in the ophthalmology business for more than 35 years but has been focusing exclusively on laser-refractive surgeries since 2001. At Carolinas Eye Center, he draws upon this specialized expertise as he clears blurry vision with LASIK and PRK procedures. His two surgical technician sidekicks have assisted Dr. Clemente in thousands of these corrective treatments that have left just as many pairs of glasses heartbroken.
