LASIK For Astronauts. Now Available For You.


As LASIK technology continues to advance, the Campbell Cunningham Laser Center strives to offer the most state-of-the-art equipment and knowhow to provide East Tennesseans with the best possible experience.

Now, the same technology used to perform LASIK vision correction on astronauts, fighter pilots, and other people is available to prospective patients in East Tennessee. The Campbell Cunningham Laser Center offers iLASIK, the most advanced LASIK technology available from Abbott Medical Optics.

iLASIK is unique because it makes every LASIK procedure completely customized for the patient. Each patient eye is unique in shape and structure, and our LASIK physicians uses state-of-the-art technology to help accommodate for these. We do that by using a computer analysis to create a three dimensional map of the eye. Since every eye is different, the scan allows the physician to adjust the laser treatment very precisely, making even minute changes that can improve sight.

Campbell Cunningham Laser Center in Knoxville uses  VISX™ Advanced CustomVue™ technology to provide this three-dimensional map of the cornea, which allows our VISX™ STAR S4 IR Laser System to perform Custom LASIK using the blade free VISX Intralase™, a femtosecond laser.

The procedure only takes about ten minutes, after which your vision can be corrected for nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
