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.
A woman arrives to pick up her new glasses and gasps audibly once she puts them on, amazed at how crisp and distinct objects suddenly become. According to the manager of The Landings Eye Care, this is the reaction that his crew strives for with every patient. During each eye exam, his wife and her staff strive to spend ample time with patients to understand their concerns and explain their ocular conditions. To this end, staff schedule appointments at least 45 minutes apart to give clients extra personal attention and ensure little-to-no waiting time, which is often spent doing eye-straining activities such as watching a basketball game on a cell phone or crying over the results of a basketball game. After the exam, patients are escorted to the fitting area, where a specialized crew gives the patient a tour of the myriad frame options lining the warm wood shelves, helping them select the most flattering options for their face shape. This team keeps updated on latest trends, meeting with vendors every two months to uncover the newest bestsellers.
