Best Lasik Surgeons in Atlanta

The best LASIK sur­geons leave you with no doubt that you’re in good hands. With the refrac­tive procedure’s con­tin­u­al­ly increas­ing pop­u­lar­i­ty, more sur­geons are ris­ing as lead­ers in the indus­try.

Decid­ing on which sur­geon you can trust for the pro­ce­dure and after LASIK eye surgery care should be tak­en seri­ous­ly.

At our Atlanta LASIK surgery center, we evaluate our physicians methodically on the following criteria:

  • Safe­ty.  The need for laser surgery is based on the shape of the cornea, and the cor­rec­tion of myopia is based on the reshap­ing of the cornea. A physi­cian removes small bits of tis­sue to thin or flat­ten the shape. How­ev­er, there is a severe thresh­old across which too much removal becomes dam­ag­ing. Our sur­geons know when too much of the cornea is need of removal, and turn away patients accord­ing­ly.
  • Equip­ment. The type of laser used dur­ing pro­ce­dure makes a mas­sive impact on the safe­ty and pre­ci­sion of the pro­ce­dure. It is impor­tant that our team is equipped with the knowl­edge and skill to expert­ly han­dle all new and emerg­ing tech­nol­o­gy so that our patients can achieve their high­est out­come poten­tial.
  • Avail­abil­i­ty. At Dia­mond Vision, we pride our­selves on being avail­able to our patients. We under­stand that heal­ing time does not always coin­ci­dence per­fect­ly with time away from work, so we work with you to make pre-surgery vis­its and post-op care con­ve­nient to pre-exist­ing patient sched­ule. Our team is addi­tion­al­ly avail­able out­side of appoint­ments for con­cerns, ques­tions, any hes­i­ta­tions that need to be calmed before or after the pro­ce­dure. We are here for you.
