The Eye Care Institute is the best in LASIK laser vision correction procedures in Louisville.

John C. Meyer, MD has performed over 7,000 laser vision correction procedures. He first used the excimer laser while completing his Fellowship in Refractive Surgery and Corneal Diseases at Emory University during 1994 and 1995. As such, he is one of the first doctors in the country to have had access to an excimer laser. LASIK is a great option but we also offer many other vision correction procedures that may be right for you.

We are excited to have Dr. Pattar join our team as our newest LASIK Doctor to the Louisville area.

Glaucoma is a group of diseases of the optic nerve (the nerve that connects the eye to the brain). In glaucoma, the optic nerve becomes progressively damaged, leading to a loss of sight. Untreated glaucoma can lead to blindness.

Glaucoma is usually associated with an elevated pressure of the eye, but there are many people who show evidence of glaucoma damage with “normal” pressures. Likewise, many people have what are considered high intraocular pressures with no signs of glaucoma.

Age Related Macular Degeneration, also referred to as ARMD, or simply macular degeneration, occurs when the cells in the macula break down causing vision loss in the central part of the field of vision. Most often ARMD is a slow, progressive and painless disease affecting both eyes. There are two main types of ARMD: Dry (atrophic) ARMD and Wet (exudative) ARMD.
