Campbell Cunningham Laser Center was launched in 1997 as the Knoxville area’s first on-site LASIK surgery center. Since then, our surgeons have improved the vision of thousands who suffered from nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Knoxville LASIK surgeons A. Kirk Haun, M.D., F.A.C.S., Jake McMillin, M.D., and Eric Sollenberger, M.D., combine state-of-the-art technology with the area’s most experienced LASIK support team to offer comprehensive vision correction procedures.
No matter how ready you are to reduce or eliminate your need for corrective lenses, the decision to have LASIK is a big one. You want to know that you are getting the most-trusted treatment available. That is exactly why the skilled, experienced surgeons at the Campbell Cunningham Laser Center use the WaveLight® Refractive Suite by Alcon which is considered by industry leaders to be among the most advanced laser vision correction technology available. These technologies allow for a more precise LASIK procedure that is quick, virtually painless, and has been shown in clinical studies to offer exceptional visual acuity in many cases, with 89% of patients achieving 20/15 and 100% achieving 20/20.
Since introducing LASIK to the area, the Campbell Cunningham Laser Center has successfully performed more than 20,000 LASIK procedures.
†Outcomes may vary. Ninety-eight percent of nearsighted patients participating in the Advanced CustomVue™ FDA clinical trials could see 20/20 or better one year after treatment.
Wavelight Refractive Suite
Always at the forefront with the latest eye care technology, the Campbell Cunningham Laser Center is excited to offer WaveLight Refractive Suite by Alcon. During your pre-operative exam, our team will perform a Topolyzer VARIO scan which integrates non-contact technology to produce a mapping of the surface of the eye with the CONTOURA® Vision Mapping system. This information is used to create your custom treatment plan and will be integrated into the FS200 Femtosecond Laser for the initial stage of treatment as well as the EX500 Excimer Laser to complete the procedure. Using this state-of-the-art technology to create a personalized map, Laser Center doctors know exactly how to reshape the cornea to correct the individual patient’s vision. Using the FS200 laser—which employs no blades, only lasers—the surgeon creates a thin LASIK flap that is folded back. The surgeon then uses the “cool” laser of the EX500 Excimer Laser to gently reshape the cornea. This stage takes only a few seconds and the flap is then folded back into place and the procedure is complete.
Campbell Cunningham Laser Center is located at the main office of the Ophthalmology practice of Drs. Campbell, Cunningham, Taylor & Haun on Weisgarber Road in West Knoxville.
