If practice makes perfect, David Whiting, MD, must be approaching that standard: he has performed more than 98,000 LASIK eye surgeries in his career. While racking up those impressive stats, the board-certified ophthalmologist has held medical-director positions at institutions including LasikPlus and Joffe MediCenter. At Whiting Clinic LASIK + Eye Care, he and his staff make use of both extensive experience and advanced technology to perform treatments including LASIK eye surgery, cataract procedures, and lens implants to treat severe nearsightedness or just allow for useful backup eyes. Patients get to experience the fun side as well as the medical side of the intricate equipment: during their visit, they'll interface with iPad systems and select their own music to listen to. The clinic itself was built to Dr. Whiting's own specifications, including eco-friendly construction methods, sweeping glass walls that light up with changing colors at night, and nature-inspired artwork that allows patients to revel in their renewed vision.

Founded by Dr. Stephen Joffe and Craig Joffe, a father-and-son team who used LASIK eye surgery to correct their own vision, Joffe MediCenter has four locations across the country where expert ophthalmologists use advanced diagnostics to conduct each custom wavefront LASIK surgery. Treatment begins with a free, noninvasive examination with Bausch & Lomb Orbscan and Zywave mapping systems—derived from technology developed for astronomy and physics applications. They generate a 3-D model of each eye, which, like a fingerprint or favorite line from The Princess Bride, is unique to each person.

Upon assessing the results to confirm LASIK candidacy, doctors schedule an in-office surgery in their state-of-art clinic. The LASIK procedure is designed to eliminate your need for glasses and contacts regardless of whether you suffer from nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. The vast majority of patients experience 20/20 vision the next morning after treatment. After the procedure, doctors will schedule postoperative exams.
