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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Relying on their extensive expertise and cutting-edge diagnostic technology, Precision Family Eye Care's optometrists protect their patients' vision from all manner of conditions. Dr. Keith Roberts and Dr. Nicholas Wolf perform comprehensive examinations, fit all manner of contact lenses, see patients of all ages, and monitor and treat ocular disease. Their office only uses the latest in lens technology and also stocks a wide variety of prescription eyewear from international brands, including ?ga, a Scandinavian brand known for its simple, masculine frames, and Pilgrim, a Danish brand that features such feminine touches as jeweled details.
