As anyone who has accidentally called a boss "mom" knows, being able to tell who's who is vital to the preservation of dignity.

A thorough consultation and exam determine candidacy for surgery; those who are not approved as candidates will receive a full refund.
Board-certified ophthalmologist and refractive-surgery specialist Dr. Farzad Yaghouti has transformed bespectacled baby blues through more than 60,000 LASIK procedures during his 11-year tenure at Global Laser Vision. In about 15 minutes, both LASIK and PRK outpatient surgeries use carefully guided lasers to correct refractive errors with little required downtime, so patients can go straight from surgery to professional staring contests. The treatments can dramatically improve disorders such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia, and endow some eyes with better than 20/20 vision. LASIK differs from photo-refractive keratectomy, or PRK, in the treatment of the eye’s epithelium tissue—while PRK calls for its complete removal, LASIK admits partial attachment, like a hinged paper clip or an imaginary friend who’s only around for spring break. Both treatments include a full year of follow-up visits and either can be upgraded to custom Wavefront LASIK for an additional fee.

Football fans owe a thank-you to Dr. Farzad Yaghouti. The doctor's LASIK expertise made it possible for linebacker Shaun Phillips to achieve 20/15 vision, energizing the athlete’s NFL career for the foreseeable future. Dr. Yaghouti, Global Laser Vision's medical director, has performed more than 75,000 LASIK operations and lectured on the procedure at national conferences and on Fox 6 News’s San Diego Living.
The doctors at Global Laser Vision meet with patients for preliminary exams during which they discuss the pros and cons of treatments and perform numerous tests and measurements. Global Laser Vision also removes growths from eyes, also known as pterygium surgery, using surgical methods far more effective than simply blinking really fast.
