At the Atlanta Vision Institute, we offer you a way out. The restrictions imposed by poor vision and cataracts can inconvenience you, or they can even prohibit many necessary and desirable activities, such as driving, reading and playing sports. Our commitment to you is simple: we offer one of the most precise and painless LASIK and surgical cataract removal capabilities you’ll find — not just in Atlanta, but across the country. By using the most advanced laser equipment, our accomplished, talented and experienced ophthalmologist Dr. Farooq Ashraf will give you a truly first-rate eyecare experience.
We understand that caring for the eyes requires an extra level of sensitivity compared to most other places on the body. After all, our eyes are the primary gateway to experiencing the world around us. But we at the Atlanta Vision Institute exist to show you a better version of that world in a secure, comfortable and effective manner.
By choosing to have your eyecare performed at the Atlanta Vision Institute, you’ll be in the hands of M. Farooq Ashraf, MD, FACS, our talented, experienced and well-respected ophthalmologist. A veteran in the field, Dr. Ashraf…
And that’s just a start. Dr. Ashraf uses his expertise to give his patients (some of whom are other doctors) a comfortable transition into their new life with good eyesight. His deep interest in improving your eyes is reflected in the quality of his staff, his top-of-the-line equipment and the excitement he expresses while giving people better access to their favorite activities.
Many people who are sick and tired of their glasses and contact lenses still feel nervous about surgery. We’re here to show you that there’s no reason for anxiety. Dr. Ashraf has had strikingly successful results. If you are unhappy we’ll do everything in our power to make it right. It’s that simple. Dr. Ashraf is interested in improving the eyes of his patients.
Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis, commonly known as LASIK, has given millions of people worldwide a precise, effective and relatively comfortable path to sharp vision. By using a laser to create a flap in the outer layer of the eye, Dr. Ashraf is able to reshape the deeper parts of the cornea. After doing that, the flap is set back in place and it heals over the next few days.
Your newly reshaped cornea will now focus light directly onto the retina at the back of the eye, rather than behind or in front of it, giving you sharp vision. The difference between struggling with glasses or contacts and living an unhindered life is just a quick and painless 10-minute procedure.
The majority of people over the age of 50 will eventually develop a cataract. When proteins in the eye’s lens clump together, a cloudy cataract forms, obscuring vision. The problem starts out mild and can progress to full blindness. If you have cataracts in one or both eyes, the Atlanta Vision Institute offers leading-edge laser surgery — the most precise care available — along with traditional cataract surgery, which is covered by Medicare.
Cataract surgery involves the removal of your cloudy lens and replacing it with an artificial, intraocular lens (IOL). We offer a full range of premium IOLs to give you clear and sharp sight by both correcting your cataracts and giving you excellent vision at all distances.
The Atlanta Vision Institute uses leading-edge laser technology to perform precise LASIK and cataract surgeries. Our equipment — paired with the steady hands and sharp mind of Dr. Ashraf — delivers the remarkable results we’re known for.
