While Emory Vision has offered cutting-edge LASIK techniques to its patients for more than ten years, we also treat a full range of eye conditions, from routine eye exams to cosmetic eye procedures to the ongoing management of diseases and disorders of the eye.

Your LASIK Care Journey

Laser in Situ Keratomileusis ("LASIK") is a laser procedure that can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. LASIK involves creating a protective flap from the outside layer of the cornea and sculpting the middle layer to correct refractive error and improve vision. The outside flap is then repositioned over the sculpted area, much as a band-aid.

Are You a Candidate?

LASIK surgery is very successful in treating many common vision problems, but it is not for everyone. At Emory Vision, we can thoroughly evaluate your individual needs and determine the type of refractive surgery, if any, that is appropriate for correcting your vision.

Procedures and Technology

Our physicians are global leaders in developing and refining new technologies and procedures. In their expert hands, modern equipment such as the ™Allegretto Wave Eye-Q will give you results far superior to those produced by older technologies employed elsewhere.

The Emory Vision difference will be clear to you. Whether it’s finding honest and thorough answers to all of your questions, having the opportunity to spend quality time with your surgeon, or involving your family members in the process––so that they feel comfortable too––we strive to exceed your expectations.
