With more than 12,000 successful LASIK and refractive procedures performed to date, Dr. Nilesh M. Sheth continues to practice his vision-boosting craft with well-honed expertise. Famous public figures have restored their sight under his steady hand, including Law & Order actor John Fiore, U.S. Senator Scott Brown, Boston Celtics superstar and two-time elementary-school class president Jo Jo White. Together with TPA-certified optometrist Dr. Audra Rowse, Dr. Sheth honors the Sheth-Horsley Eye Center?s half century of high-quality eye care with treatments ranging from advanced cataract surgery, cosmetic procedures to repair droopy eyes and wrinkles, and corrective surgeries to sharpen vision without the need for glasses or contacts.
The doctor is aided in his fight against astigmatism, cataracts, nearsightedness, and farsightedness with leading edge high tech tools including: VISX S4 excimer lasers, Custom Wavefront instruments, and IFS intralase femtosecond lasers.
Avant LASIK Spa forgoes the clinical and impersonal atmosphere of the standard doctor?s office. Instead, patients are greeted with a spa-like atmosphere, featuring leather recliners and plush couches in the waiting and recovery lounges, and a temperature- and humidity-controlled laser suite. Overseeing the relaxing office is Medical Director, Nilesh Sheth, M.D., who has a thirst for knowledge, a list of clients who trust him, and a hand steadied by years of practice. The board-certified ophthalmologist and surgeon has performed more than 12,000 laser vision-correction procedures over his career. His skills have drawn in everyone from a US Senator to a Celtics player, leaving each with the ability to leave their glasses at home unless using them to disguise their superhero alter ego.

Dr. Samir Melki is a board-certified ophthalmologist who has performed thousands of corrective eye surgeries (including one on Baseball Hall of Famer Jim Rice) and authored three textbooks on the subject. Before receiving the vision-enhancing surgery, Dr. Melki will examine your eyes to determine your eligibility for the treatment. (If you are ineligible, you will receive a full refund.) There are some important things you should expect before, during, and after surgery, and the FDA recommends refraining from wearing contact lenses two weeks prior to surgery. After the surgery, you'll get all the follow-up care you need to guarantee success. Call ahead to schedule a consultation.
“It’s the challenging fits—either spectacles or contact lenses—that drive me," writes optician John Parrelli on his website. Since opening his first shop in 1978, these challenges have included cataract sufferers who were left without binocular vision following surgery. Parrelli and his team of lens specialists experimented with different materials, designs, and indices of refraction until they could fabricate a lens thin and strong enough to restore these patients’ sight.
Today, Parrelli Optical has grown to six locations, where optometrists inspect patients' vision with a comprehensive, 15-point eye-health assessment and complete visual analysis. Through digital corneal photography, they're able to diagnose corneal disease and increase the precision and comfort of prescriptions. The locations also host a wide selection of designer frames, ideal for experimenting with different styles, such as wearing 20 frames at once.
