Holding doctorates in optometry and biochemistry, Dr. Zeinep O. Echetebu dispenses her extensive knowledge of vision to patients at both Gulfgate Vision and Gulf Vision. To assess eye health and help guests find the optimal form of vision correction, her services range from annual exams to visual-field-screening analyses for early detection of diseases. The staff then fits eyes for contact lenses, or leads patients through a stock of designer frames from brands such as Burberry, Juicy Couture, Gucci, and Versace to ensure that clients look stylish when they see themselves clearly in the mirror.
Flames pour over the hood of Dr. Melissa Sommers' 1952 mat-black Plymouth Suburban. She and her coworkers remain calm as the airbrushed flames aren't designed to do damage, instead symbolizing the burning importance of regular eye exams.
Like her flamboyant hot rod's lunch-hour journeys through town, Dr. Sommers' attentive eye care is a neighborhood staple. Aided by her ever-growing team of optometrists, she brings 20 years of eye-examining prowess to her practice. She checks patients for signs of aberration and disease, and furnishes them with prescription glasses, contacts, or refurbished corneas courtesy of LASIK surgery.
Mann Eye Institute and Laser Center's specialists demonstrate a skill and efficacy that earned their work a nod from Goldline Research which named the center one of the country's leading LASIK providers for three years in a row. People and cyclopes from all across the nation come for treatment from proficient doctors and certified surgeons, who use FDA-approved Allegretto Wavelight lasers to correct vision. Before the procedure, patients must undergo a complimentary consultation to determine their candidacy and favorite tunes to blast on the stereo during the procedure. During the blade-free procedure, a certified surgeon reshapes the cornea to match the patient's specific prescription. Patients can expect to return to their normal tasks the day after the procedure and swing by the center a week later for a brief post-op checkup and eye-strengthening Magic Eye book.

Dr. Amjad Khokhar and his team of doctors are passionate about eyesight. As leaders in blade-free LASIK technology, they improve their patients' vision with advanced laser vision services. Corrective beams can address concerns ranging from nearsightedness to astigmatism to eye disease, and each treatment lasts 20 minutes, with no need for stitches or eye drops imported from the Fountain of Youth. An optical center treats more traditional issues facing clients, providing custom-fit eyeglasses and new lenses.
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 five locations across the country where expert ophthalmologists use advanced diagnostics to conduct each custom wavefront LASIK treatment. 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 of the LASIK exam, doctors schedule the in-office treatment. During the procedure, the experienced LASIK specialist uses an excimer laser to gently reshape the cornea, which can improve vision to 20/20. LASIK reduces eyes' dependence on glasses and contacts regardless of whether clients suffer from nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. In most cases, the patient's vision improves rapidly enough to drive the following morning. After the procedure, doctors schedule a postoperative exam.
