Dubai, UAE (PRWEB) May 13, 2013

Dr. Farooq Ashraf, a Dubai LASIK Surgeon and the founder of the Atlanta Vision Clinic, was interviewed Wednesday about the cost of LASIK surgery and its benefits. In his interview, the LASIK surgeon gives readers information about how LASIK surgery charges are calculated, how they vary from practice to practice and what factors, like technology, may influence costs. Ashraf gave this interview after receiving many requests for quotes, and having many interested clients ask about new technology.

Ashraf began his interview by breaking down how LASIK surgery costs are calculated. “The first thing to realize is that LASIK costs are calculated per eye,” Ashraf said Wednesday. “So when you are quoted for your procedure, make sure that you keep that in mind. If you need the procedure done for each eye, make sure that your costs are calculated for two eyes, not just one.”

Ashraf also noted that costs vary from practice to practice because of varying techniques and technologies. “State-of-the-art technology is always going to be a little costlier until it becomes the norm,” he pointed out. “However, you really are getting the benefits of the best technology available, so I always tell my clients that that is the way to go.”

At the Atlanta Vision Clinic, Ashraf and his staff use the Zyoptix Bausch and Lomb System for Personalized Laser Vision Correction, which maps thousands of data points on the eye to give LASIK surgeons the best possible measurements, allowing for the best treatment.

Dr. Ashraf is the founder of the Atlanta Vision Clinic and a board-certified ophthalmologist who specializes in corneal and refractive surgery, as well as other treatments for astigmatism, glaucoma, cataracts and other eye conditions. He obtained his advanced training in ocular surgery Johns Hopkins University and has performed over 40,000 LASIK procedures. He has practices in both Atlanta and Dubai. For more information, visit
