Wavelight LASIK Provider in Atlanta Introduces the First Responder Program

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) December 04, 2014

The Atlanta Vision Institute, a laser vision correction center, is now offering a special for active-duty fire and police departments in Dunwoody, Sandy Springs and Johns Creek. The program, coined the First Responder Program, will provide a significant discount on LASIK procedures for police officers and firefighters.

Some of the most important qualities for a first responder to display in the field are speediness and swiftness. Being first on the scene after an emergency requires professionals to perform at their best and be prepared. Worrying about glasses or contacts in this kind of situation is not only detrimental to an officer’s performance, but can also be dangerous and unsafe.

Many firefighters are forced to remove their glasses to put on their SCBA (self-contained breathing apparatus) facepieces when performing their duties. This is an unnecessary hassle that can be avoided with LASIK surgery. Police officers and firefighters who cannot see far away or close up can miss important details that could be potentially life threatening.

The Atlanta Vision Institute recognizes the frustration first responders endure when they have to wear vision-correcting equipment. The First Responder Program was created to help these professionals perform to the best of their abilities.

Patients who undergo LASIK surgery are often able to return to work the day after their procedure. However, this might affect many law enforcement professionals who are required to exercise vigorously and sweat throughout the day. It is important to discuss the officer’s level of activity during their initial consultation to ensure that the procedure remains successful.

“It is extremely imperative for all law enforcement officers to be able to see with clear vision,” said Dr. Farooq Ashraf, board-certified ophthalmologist and medical director of the Atlanta Vision Institute. “We wanted to show police officers and firefighters how grateful we are for all that they do by providing them with this discount.”

All active-duty police officers and firefighters interested in a LASIK procedure should contact the Atlanta Vision Institute for more information.
