Dr. Michael A. McMann's colleagues trust his skills—so much so that they turn up in his surgical suite, ready for him to perform LASIK on their own eyes. It’s likely because Dr. McMann's surgical logbook lists more than 5,000 procedures and counting, with much of that patient pool consisting of other physicians, their spouses, and members of the military. It also might have something to do with his guarantee of 20/20 vision or your money or prized goat back.
Before assuming his role as founder and medical director of McMann Eye Institute, Dr. McMann obtained his degree from the University of Chicago's Pritzker School of Medicine and served for eight years in the US Army Medical Corps as a physician and eye doctor.
InSpecs carries an eclectic selection of designs ranging in style from classically simple to scientifically advanced. For days at the beach or staring contests with a phoenix, the shop stocks transition lenses and polarized sunglasses. The resident eyewear experts also pair clients with contact lenses, including disposables, bifocal disks, or colored lenses designed to mix up a look. Thanks to the center's on-site optical lab, the staff fulfills most glasses orders in about an hour or fills contact lenses within the same business day.
The chief of surgery at EyeSight Hawaii, Dr. John Olkowski, has performed more than 10,000 vision-correction surgeries over 15 years. He has so much experience that other eye doctors entrust their eyes to him for big procedures. Dr. Olkowski teams up with optometrist Dr. Elise Louie to sharpen eyesight using laser treatments and corneal transplantation methods. To make sure they can accurately diagnose any issues, the team uses cutting-edge technology such as 3-D corneal mapping. And during the procedure, they use FDA-approved eye-tracking laser technology, which means you won't have to keep your head perfectly still as they determine the marketability of your pupil as a new marble design.
Pan Pacific Laser Vision Center was founded by one of the earliest practitioners of PRK laser treatments, Dr. Donald Johnson, who brought his pioneering no-touch PRK procedure from his native Canada to Hawaii in 1997. Over the next 15 years, the center's team of surgeons amassed more than 26,000 procedures, attracting patients from around the world, as well as surgeons looking to sharpen their own vision-correcting skills via the center's training program.
In keeping with the pioneering spirit of its founder, the center stays on the leading edge of vision-correcting technology, using Wave Front eye-mapping and employing an arsenal of laser equipment. With such tools, its doctors can perform procedures such as bladeless iLASIK, LASEK, and PRK, which is best for individuals with thin corneas.

Board-certified opthalmologist Dr. William K. Wong, Jr.—who served as an ophthalmologist in the U.S. military for more than eight years and received multiple industry awards—partners with optometrist Dr. Sadaf Sabahi to perform procedures, such as LASIK eye surgery and cataract surgery, that require a steady, expert hand. During eye exams, they assess the acuity of each eye then prescribe a corrective lens that can fit into a selection of frames by Fendi, Gucci, and Christian Dior. The duo can outfit hard-to-fit eyes or sentient potatoes with the appropriate contact lenses. Dr. Wong also administers Botox and Juvederm and performs blepharoplasties.
From the pristine beaches of Waikiki, Diamond Head, or North Shore, instructors with CPR and lifeguard certification lead students into Go Nuts Hawaii's open-water surf lessons. Privately or in groups, students find their sea legs atop long boards that can be rented or bought onsite; alternatively, they can skim the water buoyed by the shop’s standup paddleboards. Waterproof accessories add a technological edge to voyages and range from cameras for aquatic action shots to waterproof headphones for drowning out mermaids loudly counting their pirate gold. The company's helpful staffers—including one Japanese-speaking member—put customers and surf students at ease.
