When you schedule an appointment at Schaeffer Eye Center, you can expect the most comprehensive eye care in the Birmingham area. One of our many services is LASIK eye surgery, which is performed by LASIK pioneer Dr. Jonathan Woolfson.
Dr. Woolfson graduated from Vanderbilt Medical School and completed his residency at Emory University. He studied LASIK eye surgery in South Africa before the procedure was approved by the FDA, then returned to the U.S. to help others master LASIK surgery. He is a member of many prestigious medical organizations, including the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery and the American Medical Association. Over his long and successful career, Dr. Woolfson has performed over 80,000 LASIK procedures, making him one of the most experienced LASIK surgeons in North America. In fact, over 300 eye doctors have chosen Dr. Woolfson to perform their own LASIK surgeries. In addition, Dr. Woolfson has served as a national proctor, providing training and certification for more than 100 lasik surgeons.
