The board-certified ophthalmologists and optometrists at Panhandle Vision Institute use the latest technology to perform services ranging from basic eye exams to advanced surgical procedures. Dr. Barry Concool, having completed more than 15,000 LASIK procedures, is recognized as one of the most experienced LASIK surgeons in the country. He performs the IntraLase LASIK technique, a blade-free, computer-controlled procedure that can be used even on patients with thin corneas, and is also the only surgeon in the state of Florida authorized to teach the highly precise process to other surgeons. Joining Dr. Concool and the rest of the team is ophthalmologist and facial plastic surgeon Dr. David Mills, who was named one of the top doctors in 2009 by Jacksonville Magazine and has seen his work published in numerous medical journals. Dr. Mills' dual board certification allows him to treat functional eye disorders and complete cosmetic procedures, such as eyelid lifts and facial liposculpting. To correct vision, Dr. Mills and the rest of the surgical team rely on cutting-edge technology including second and third generation Excimer lasers, which utilize cool light beams to reshape corneas without damaging the surrounding tissue or destroying any nearby moons.
