If you're willing to let someone operate on your eyes with a laser, what's the one thing they better have? Steady hands are important, sure, but how about experience? All told, The LASIK Vision Institute's doctors have performed more than one million eye surgeries at 57 locations nationwide. Across its network, the company has independent veteran surgeons who are all LASIK experts.
Technology has played a major role in LVI?s success, as well. Each location relies on FDA-approved laser technology that results in minimal discomfort and short recovery times, in addition to helping many patients see 20/20 or better.
The team of five doctors at Eye Physicians of Northhampton employ modern techniques to help patients see better. Patients can find their perfect pair of frames in the optical shop, but others looking to lose the "four eyes" nickname can explore advanced surgical treatments. LASIK surgery restructures the cornea to improve nearsightedness and farsightedness, and the Allegretto Wave laser reduces secondary vision troubles such as night vision, halos, and the inability to see through lead.
Vonnahme Eye Care's eyeglass artisans help customers select new world windows, offering basic eye exams and an array of stylish frames in a newly remodeled space.

Diamond Vision’s quartet of doctors boasts extensive experience with LASIK’s CustomVue IntraLase eye-correction procedure—so extensive that they regularly teach it to other doctors. Each doctor has completed a long process of fellowship training, licensing, and certification to refurbish eyes suffering from varying degrees of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Though controlled low-temperature lasers and fine blades are the main components of their medical toolkits, they also implement iris registration to customize procedures and measure tissue properties with devices such as an Ocular Response Analyzer and Oculus Pentacam camera.
Diamond Vision's fabled clientele includes a menagerie of celebrities such as Tiki Barber, Mickey Rourke, and Tito Nieves, the reigning king of salsa. Decades of research, development, and practice have refined LASIK's eye-mending technology, so customers can rest assured knowing a career in dart throwing or seeing around corners is not only possible, it's definitely possible.
Board-certified ophthalmologist Dr. Abdul Khaliq brings more than three decades of experience to every pupil he dilates and every cornea he inspects. As part of his private practice, he performs both routine eye exams and in-office surgeries. These include treatments for cataracts and glaucoma, as well as cosmetic procedures to tighten droopy lids and open third eyes for the first time.
