Dr. M. Farooq Ashraf mastered the excimer laser as a member of the faculty at Johns Hopkins University, and he now wields the ultramodern tool as he adds to his career tally of more than 35,000 LASIK procedures. As founder and medical director of Atlanta Vision Institute, he draws upon his skills as a board-certified ophthalmologist to correct nearsighted, farsighted, and astigmatic vision with refractive surgery. In addition to giving the gift of sight, Dr. Ashraf gives back to the community by supporting local charities and providing discounted services to financially strapped Cyclopes.
In the elegant white and marble confines of Family Eyecare of Roswell, Dr. Zadeh, and his skilled staff of technicians help patients hone in on their next pair of glasses or contacts.

Eye1st Vision & Laser Center's network of highly experienced and meticulously trained physicians help improve patients' quality of life with a variety of vision-correcting procedures. Armed with the WavePrint system by VISX, the physicians and technicians can more accurately analyze patients' eyes and devise completely customized LASIK procedures, which can correct conditions such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and blurred x-ray vision. Cataract surgeries allow the doctors to remove clouded lenses and potentially replace them with premium intraocular lenses: implants that can free patients from their dependence on contacts or glasses. Beyond surgery, the teams also help maintain general eye health by checking for and treating conditions such as glaucoma and macular degeneration.
Within the onsite optical lab at each Eyeworks location, opticians perform virtually any act of optical alchemy, whether forging new bifocals, mending bent or broken frames, or glazing lenses in protective coatings that cut down on glare and scratches. Armed with a knack for style, opticians cull from the stores' collection of designer frames?including popular models from Dakota Smith and Lafont and exclusive lines from Soho and Okki?to match each customer with a look to suit their personality and facial structure. Before either can get to work, however, optometrists conduct comprehensive eye exams, helping patients maintain healthy, focused vision by honing new prescriptions and diagnosing potential diseases such as cataracts or early-onset googly eyes.
The Marietta Eye Clinic System is a full-time comprehensive eye care center consisting of seven offices located in the northern suburbs of Atlanta.

Over the course of her career, optometrist Dr. Janelle Davison has worked with military veterans, children, and the general public, but her mission has always been the same: to educate patients about their eyes. As she makes her optometric evaluations, she gets patients involved in their eye health by explaining how to manage dry and red eyes, the next steps in treating eye conditions such as glaucoma or macular degeneration, and how to keep playfully crossed eyes from staying that way. Afterward, she sharpens vision with an array of contacts, single-vision lenses, and Kodak Progressive plastic lenses.
