LASIK surgery is a quick process that improves vision. Here are some key facts about LASIK:

* You ARE AWAKE during the surgery, but you may be given medication to relax

* Your eyes are numbed with drops and aside from little pressure, YOU MOST LIKELY WON'T FEEL A THING during the procedure

* Typically BOTH EYES are treated during the same visit

* The procedure generally takes less than 10 MINUTES PER EYE (walk in/walk out)

* Approximately NINETY-FIVE PERCENT of nearsighted patients participating in the Wavelight FDA Clinical Trials could see 20/20 or better one year after treatment. Outcomes may vary.

Best Money Ever spent, 5/07/2012

I want to Share my experience with Atlanta2020 because at first like everyone I was very skeptical and nervous about undergoing the Lasik procedure. I did extensive research and Dr, Ashraf is... extremely qualified and has preformed several thousand operations previously, so I decided to schedule a consultation. I first met with Dr. Ashraf and he was very helpful with answering all of my questions. After meeting with him I was relieved and felt very comfortable about the procedure. (I mean these are your eyes you cant just have anyone operate) The day of the procedure everything went very smooth and according to plan. It was even better than I expected. I want to recommend Dr. Ashraf because not only does he uphold his level of expertise that he promises but also makes sure you feel as comfortable as possible. It has been almost a month now and I feel great and have already had family members sign up for the procedure. I would do it all over again it was definitely worth every penny.In case your wondering I have no Stigmatism, but I still did the custom Lasik procedure.

AN ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL LASIK EXPERIENCE AT ATLANT, 11/18/2011

I was blind but now I see. Dr Ashraf is knowledgeable. Quick. The office is simply beautiful. It was painless. Affordable. I can see now! I'm not having car crashes! I can see detail. I don't... have to squint. I don't have to wear contacts! I have 20/20 vision now! In other words, I am the man! I would highly recommend Atlanta Vision Institute. Money VERY well spent. If only everything was this easy.

I have 20/15 vision now!

Initially, I was very nervous about a procedure that involved my eyes. After doing some research and finding Dr. Ashraf at the Atlanta Vision Institute, I went in for a consultation, and my nerves turned to excitement. I didn't realize how simple the procedure was, and the fact that Dr. Ashraf has a top-notch facility didn't hurt either. He explained every bit of the process, and I felt like I was in good hands the entire way through. The procedure only took a few minutes, and the results have been life-altering. Before the procedure, I couldn't even drive without my glasses. After the procedure, I have 20/15 vision, which is better than normal. Waking up being able to see, swimming and not having to deal with irritating contacts or glasses in general have made my life so much easier. If you're thinking about lasik, the Atlanta Vision Institute is the best choice that you can make for your eyes!

Highly recommended!

Normally do not write reviews but this experience should be shared. Have worn glasses since I was five years old. I had many questions, did the research, and it led me to Dr. Ashraf at the Atlanta Vision Institute. The website (atlanta2020 dot com) is top notch and will answer many of the questions you have, then a no-cost no-pressure consultation with Dr. Ashraf and his team will take care of the rest. They made sure I knew what to expect every step of the way. It is obvious he cares about the outcome of each patient and I can highly recommend this doctor.Dr. Ashraf is one of the elite in his field: Impressive resume including Johns Hopkins, tons of experience (35,000 LASIK procedures, extensive research background, numerous articles published, etc), and unlike some doctors he has people skills (he wants you to be well informed and comfortable during the entire process). If you are worried that you may not qualify the percentage that can be treated successfully has increased quite a bit in the last several years. My prescription prior to surgery was stronger than most: OD was -5.25 -2.25 x 15 and OS was -5.25 -1.50 x 175. Now I see as well as I did with glasses (better than 20/20) and only need glasses to read small print (at 51 years old this was expected). There has been no downside to this decision.Hope this review helps others who are on the fence. In short if you are considering laser vision correction you have found the doctor that will increase the odds of a successful outcome.

Great Lasik!

I did a lot of work deciding on a Lasik provider. When I met with AVI, I decided to have the procedure done that Saturday. The results were wonderful and the experience was better than expected. Dr. Ashraf's vast experience made the decision easy. It has been almost 2 months now and I see 20/15. I am 54 years old and no longer need glasses for anything. My only regret is that I waited so long.

Great LASIK Experience

My experience at the Atlanta Vision Institute was probably the best experience I have had with any doctor for anything. The friendly staff and the expertise and experience of Dr. Ashraf's was second to none. I did plenty of research on LASIK before making my decision, and the Atlanta Vision Institute was hands down the right choice.
