Dr. Leonard R. Achiron graduated from the New England College of Optometry with honors, but he’s not just book smart—he’s also laser smart. Dr. Achiron has co-managed more than 50,000 Lasik procedures as former professor of the Emory Eye Center and clinical director of Lasik Vision Institute. Like him, each of his colleagues on the center’s team of ophthalmologists has performed tens of thousands of eye surgeries, alleviating ailments ranging from nearsightedness and farsightedness to cataracts. At their clinic, they also pool their talents to treat eyes with nonsurgical services, such as exams, contact-lens fittings, and glasses for those who never took to their lessons on how to squint harder.
The holistic experts at Optimum Health fuse Western medicine and alternative therapies to tackle clients’ health and wellness concerns. While chiropractors identify and treat disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, physical therapists treat injuries and disabilities by crafting custom protocols composed of therapeutic exercises, hot and cold therapies, and neuromuscular re-education. Similarly, skilled massage therapists employ deep-tissue, myofascial, and trigger-point therapies to loosen and restore tense sinews. Doctors and nurse practitioners target pain at its source rather than merely covering up the symptoms with painkillers or a plastic tarp. Additionally, Optimum Health's specialists craft custom treatment plans for patients struggling with weight loss, nutrition, and stress as they target the underlying causes of health issues.

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.
