Ophthalmologists Dr. David I. Malitz, Dr. M. Alijajeh, and Dr. C. Mark Millsap team up with Doctor of Optometry Zach Rossman to clarify vision with Ohio Valley Eye Institute's range of cutting-edge eye-care services. Basic eye exams for children and adults test whether eyes need corrective lenses or LASIK. During cataract surgery, high-energy sound waves obliterate the cloudy intrusion into microscopic particles, and an intraocular lens usually eschews the need for stitches. The staff also brightens eye surroundings with cosmetic procedures such as blepharoplasty, which lifts drooping upper eyelids and tightens sagging lower lids, as well as Botox and laser resurfacing treatments. The ophthalmologists especially pride themselves on their surgical skills, having completely eliminated the need for glasses in many patients who have been told they weren't candidates for corrective procedures in the past.
The doctors sit down with each patient to review their selected procedure step by step in order to alleviate anxiety. Supportive friends or family members who stand by can amuse themselves by turning on the television or perusing a selection of magazines in the waiting area, or by peeking into their loved one's treatment room through a window to watch the surgical action.

Started in 1961 by Dr. Stanley Pearle, the nationally recognized and trusted franchise now operates in nearly 800 locations nationwide. The master visionaries at Pearle are well trained in assisting all bespectacled beings, from casual librarians to picky, temperamental Cyclopes. Equip a corrective pair of Essentials frames starting at $99.95, or slip on a pair of designer eye enhancers, such as those by Anne Klein and DKNY ($149.95+) or Versace ($205+).

20/20 Eyecare's optometrists examine eyes and dress them up in specialty lenses and designer frames. They can recommend gear for almost any pair of soul windows with a supply of scratch- and glare-resistant lenses as well as OSHA–certified safety glasses. Technicians offer free adjustments, perform minor repairs, and change glasses' oil, often with same- or next-day service.
As an Alcon–sponsored Dry Eye Center of Excellence, 20/20 Eyecare is notably equipped to treat dry-eye syndrome.
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.
The highly trained and experienced team at The Eye Care Institute cares for eyes with services ranging from routine family eye care to advanced LASIK surgical procedures. The clinical crew is comprised of six eye doctors, including three board-certified ophthalmologists who are all diplomates of the National Board of Medical Examiners and fellows of the American Academy of Ophthalmology. They specialize in laser vision correction for nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, using the latest technological innovations to restore 20/20 sight and impart the ability to see through holiday wrapping paper.
Aside from caring for eyes, the medical staff members also help care for the community. They are the official eye doctors of the Louisville Bats baseball team, as well as supporters of the American Diabetes Association and several local charities.
