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.
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.
Helmed by Doctor of Chiropractic Damian Scelfo, Carolina Spinal Care & Laser Therapy Center reduces client circumferences with spot-targeted fat reduction and body-vibration therapy. A non-invasive system, the Lapex 2000 BCS LipoLaser sneakily penetrates skin without breaking the surface, startling adipose cells into dropping their water stores, fatty acids, glycerol, and juggling pins. Once free of baggage, fat cells shrivel into unfat cells, visibly shrinking chosen areas in time. After the 45-minute treatment, newly narrowing forms shake and shimmy to the circulation-boosting tremors of a Wave vibration machine, strengthening previously concealed contours and relieving pockets of spare change. Sessions conclude with a relaxing 10-minute hydro-massage on an AquaMed Bed, with muscle-kneading jets of warm water soothing away tension while clients remain completely dry and fully costumed. Although many patients see results after one Lapex LaserLipo session, the number of treatments required for optimal outcomes varies from person to person.

Way To Go's experienced staff expertly hones blades for optimal ice-slaying power at its well-stocked sports equipment outlets that specialize in buying, selling, and consigning used sporting goods. For optimal carving and snow-spraying hockey stops, skates should be sharpened professionally instead of being dragged down the street by a newlywed couple’s tandem bike. Families with more than one skater, or teams of ice-dancing penguins, are welcome to bring in multiple pairs of skates for group bonding activities around the sharpening wheel. After just one sharpening, skaters can showcase newfound nimbleness on the ice, gliding along with poise like a ballerina operating a segway.
