If you're willing to let someone operate on your eyes with a laser, what's the one thing they better have? Steady hands are important, sure, but how about experience? All told, The LASIK Vision Institute's doctors have performed more than one million eye surgeries at 57 locations nationwide. Across its network, the company has independent veteran surgeons who are all LASIK experts.
Technology has played a major role in LVI?s success, as well. Each location relies on FDA-approved laser technology that results in minimal discomfort and short recovery times, in addition to helping many patients see 20/20 or better.
Dr. Joseph Banis, a board-certified surgeon, leads a team of registered nurses and aesthetic specialists at his plastic-surgery and medical-skincare practice. This well-qualified crew tackles signs of aging with facial peels, injectables, and laser treatments, as well as surgical nips, tucks, and lifts. Noninvasive CoolSculpting body contouring aims to freeze fat cells for a more shapely physique, whereas traditional liposuction removes fat deposits from areas such as tummies, thighs, and vestigial tails.
At Joffe MediCenter, Dr. Kenneth Smith heightens the sight of his patients with advanced LASIK technology, backed by his extensive training as a chief resident at the University of Louisville. Patients eyes get sized up with a complementary comprehensive LASIK eye exam before any treatment, ensuring that the LASIK procedure is the right choice for his patients through Wavefront analyzers, 3-D maps of the corneal structure, and a careful observation of the way in which light travels through the eye.
The highly advanced custom Wavefront LASIK treatments employ an array of meticulously calibrated lasers and microsensors to execute a precise, individually tailored sight correction for every patient, allowing many patients to return to work the next day. Post-treatment, many patients boast clearer vision than they had when relying on contacts, glasses, or vintage View-Masters.
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.
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.
At Medical Vision Institute, Dr. Jitander S. Dudee puts his considerable skills into practice during modernized refractive procedures, including CustomVue LASIK and PRK surgery. Dr. Dudee is a celebrated graduate of the University of Cambridge, where he completed medical school and received his master's degree. He went on to complete his Ophthamology residency at the Washington National Eye Center in Washington, D.C. - where he won the Harry Kerr Prize and a Southern Medical Association Scholarship for his work with glaucoma treatments. In 1994, he joined the Lexington practice of Dr. George Birenbaum and has since performed thousands of successful laser and micro-surgical corrections.
