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.
Skippack Eye Care's optometry experts stylishly festoon faces with designer brands that abolish blurry vision and enhance ocular allure. Frames from illustrious designers such as Prada, BCBG, and Banana Republic give eyes a more opulent outlook than trimming them with tinsel ($199+), and expertly formed lenses transform fuzzy images into crisp works of art ($65+). Frame fiends can find prescription or standard sunglasses from Ray-Ban and more to defend retinas from the sun's retina-tanning rays. In case of inadvertent skull growth or Three Stooges rehearsals, every eyeglass purchase comes with complimentary repairs and adjustments.
At Columbus & Perfection Lasers, Dr. William F. Columbus and a team of licensed practitioners draw from thousands of successful laser-based vision correction procedures to restore the sight of grateful patients. The good doctor and his staff master the versatile capabilities of amplified light, from sharpening fields of vision to distracting overstimulated kittens. Under the steady hand of a qualified medical professional, beneficial beams are wielded in a host of vision correction services such as LASIK, PRK, and the LAHayeSIK method which aim to restore 20/20 vision and correct astigmatisms.
Alexander C. Nnabue knows that caring for eyes is really about caring for people. After earning doctor of optometry degrees from both Imo State University in Nigeria and the Pennsylvania College of Optometry, Dr. Nnabue decided to found his own company to help restore patients' ocular health. What began in 1994 as a single storefront has blossomed into six Visual Eyes locations throughout the Washington, DC metropolitan area. Today, the caring doctor leads biannual medical mission trips to Africa, including one trip that, according to a 2006 Nigeria World article, put thousands of eyeglasses and medications in the hands of those in need. Dr. Nnabue also shares his knowledge as an adjunct faculty member at Pennsylvania College of Optometry, a senior examiner with the National Board of Examiners in Optometry, and an international instructor in countries including Israel and Norway.
At Visual Eyes, he and his fellow optometrists use advanced technology to diagnose and treat various conditions. A trained technician manufactures lenses at an in-house lab, and Dr. Nnabue specializes in orthokeratology, a vision-correcting process that eliminates the need to wear glasses, contacts, or a sign that says, "Sorry for walking into you; I forgot my contacts or glasses." The team also prides itself on showcasing the latest designer frames, including Oliver Peoples, Prada, and Robert Marc.
