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.
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.
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.
Modern frames are so sleek and dynamic that dozens of full-sighted individuals attempt to gain access to the elite club of Glassed Americans. Advanced Vision of Louisville offers a bevy of sight-betterers to fit any face shape or budget. Choose from a dizzying array of designer frames including models by Vanni, DKNY, Gucci, Anne Klein, Guess, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Kenneth Cole, Nike, and Nikon. Europhiles needn't feel left out with frames from European designers including Prodesign, Klik, and Fysh. Budget frames are $99 and designer frames are $159–$500. If you buy frames that cost $200 or more, you can't use the 25% discount on the difference. Lenses start at $75 for a pair of plastics, and an exam is $92.
Dr. Roy Hyman and his friendly team of spectacle specialists help bring blurred sight into fashionable focus with state-of-the-art equipment and comprehensive care. Foggy visioneers take a seat and recite byzantine love letters while Dr. Hyman stares deep into their eyes with various instruments, including his instinctive third eye. After a complete eye exam, assistants help patients peruse the office's wall of specially priced frames (ranging from $90 to $495) and lenses (single vision lenses $60) that are fashion-conscious, yet practical for everyday challenges, such as seeing through walls that recently fell over.
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.
