Equipped with the latest technologies, Atlanta Vision Institute is greater-Atlanta’s preferred center for vision correction surgeries.
We are led by our skilled ophthalmologist, Dr. Ashraf, who has performed tens of thousands of successful laser eye surgeries and prides himself on always being at the forefront of surgical techniques and procedures. He is the first surgeon in Georgia to provide the cutting-edge 3rd generation of laser vision correction, SMILE, and the Atlanta Vision Institute team is able to handle any surgery that fits your needs.
SMILE stands for small incision lenticule extraction and is approved by the U.S. FDA. This procedure is increasing in popularity and has been performed successfully on over 800,000 eyes worldwide. SMILE is gradually replacing LASIK as the go-to laser vision correction surgery, and we are proud to offer it right here, at Atlanta Vision Institute.
During LASIK surgery, a small flap in your corneal tissue is created so an excimer laser can reshape your cornea. With SMILE, an excimer laser is not used, and a corneal flap is not made. Instead, your surgeon uses a Femtosecond laser to reshape the cornea. The recovery for this less invasive procedure is twice as fast as LASIK and relatively effortless, meaning you can enjoy your perfect vision sooner and pain-free.
SMILE allows you to experience 20/20 vision without any corrective eyewear. SMILE is a great option if you are:

It is a flapless procedure that has all the combined advantages of surface ablation (PRK) and LASIK. It is PRK without pain and LASIK without a flap. SMILE is a flapless, bladeless, noiseless, odorless procedure.
