The Marietta Eye Clinic System is a full-time comprehensive eye care center consisting of seven offices located in the northern suburbs of Atlanta. Patient services include adult and pediatric eye examinations, cataract, laser and refractive surgery (including LASIK), and optical dispensing of eyeglasses and contact lenses
Over the course of her career, optometrist Dr. Janelle Davison has worked with military veterans, children, and the general public, but her mission has always been the same: to educate patients about their eyes. As she makes her optometric evaluations, she gets patients involved in their eye health by explaining how to manage dry and red eyes, the next steps in treating eye conditions such as glaucoma or macular degeneration, and how to keep playfully crossed eyes from staying that way. Afterward, she sharpens vision with an array of contacts, single-vision lenses, and Kodak Progressive plastic lenses.
Dr. M. Farooq Ashraf mastered the excimer laser as a member of the faculty at Johns Hopkins University, and he now wields the ultramodern tool as he adds to his career tally of more than 35,000 LASIK procedures. As founder and medical director of Atlanta Vision Institute, he draws upon his skills as a board-certified ophthalmologist to correct nearsighted, farsighted, and astigmatic vision with refractive surgery. In addition to giving the gift of sight, Dr. Ashraf gives back to the community by supporting local charities and providing discounted services to financially strapped Cyclopes.
Eye1st Vision & Laser Center's network of highly experienced and meticulously trained physicians help improve patients' quality of life with a variety of vision-correcting procedures. Armed with the WavePrint system by VISX, the physicians and technicians can more accurately analyze patients' eyes and devise completely customized LASIK procedures, which can correct conditions such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and blurred x-ray vision. Cataract surgeries allow the doctors to remove clouded lenses and potentially replace them with premium intraocular lenses: implants that can free patients from their dependence on contacts or glasses. Beyond surgery, the teams also help maintain general eye health by checking for and treating conditions such as glaucoma and macular degeneration.
Woolfson Eye Institute’s founder and medical director Dr. Jonathan Woolfson is a board-certified ophthalmic surgeon who has performed more than 70,000 laser vision-correction procedures. Such clinical experience has helped him earn the trust of other medical professionals; he has performed more than 300 surgeries on his fellow eye doctors and trained and certified more than 100 North American LASIK surgeons. He has also fine-tuned the eyesight of professional athletes, including Ovie Mughelli, Curtis Lofton, and Kroy Biermann of the Atlanta Falcons.
Dr. Woolfson draws upon this extensive experience each time he customizes a laser procedure to his patients’ needs. He and his staff of doctors begin every treatment with in-depth consultations, where they determine the lasers, instruments, and novelty sound effects needed to successfully enhance eyesight. Once they’ve completed their procedures, they also offer eligible patients a Lifetime Assurance Plan, granting them free lifetime access to any fine-tuning surgeries.
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.
Upon assessing the results to confirm LASIK candidacy, doctors schedule an in-office surgery in their state-of-art clinic. The LASIK procedure is designed to eliminate your need for glasses and contacts regardless of whether you suffer from nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. The vast majority of patients experience 20/20 vision the next morning after treatment. After the procedure, doctors will schedule postoperative exams.
