LASIK vision correction is an important part of the technological advances offered by Drs. Campbell and Cunningham—so much so, in fact, that the doctors established a facility just for laser surgery.
The Campbell Cunningham Laser Center features the latest in technology for LASIK vision correction, including iLASIK, the most advanced form of laser vision correction available from Abbot Medical Optics.
In 1997, Drs. Philip Campbell and Les Cunningham built the Knoxville area’s first on-site LASIK surgery center. Since then, the Campbell Cunningham Laser Center performed over 20,000 procedures on patients to help correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. The surgeons of the Campbell Cunningham Laser Center combine state-of-the-art technology with the area’s most experienced eye care support team to offer comprehensive vision correction procedures.
The Campbell Cunningham Laser Center uses advanced technologies such as Intralase™, allowing LASIK to be 100% blade-free and CustomVue™, which maps your eye’s unique visual characteristics, allowing for truly custom vision correction. These technologies allow for a more precise LASIK procedure that is quick and virtually painless. Outcomes to surgery may vary, but in FDA clinical trials, 98% of nearsighted patients treated with Advanced CustomVue could see 20/20 or better one year after treatment.
The Campbell Cunningham Laser Center now features advanced iLASIK technology. iLASIK further personalizes the LASIK procedure—a major improvement because every eye is unique. iLASIK is the procedure used for Navy fighter pilots and NASA astronauts.
The first step in the iLASIK procedure is to perform a WaveScan WaveFront™ analysis to create a 3-D map of the eye. Using this state-of-the-art technology, Drs. Campbell and Cunningham are able to more effectively utilize the excimer laser to reshape the cornea. With this level of technology, each procedure—in fact, each eye—is custom tailored to the individual patient.

Want to see if LASIK is right for you? Simply click on the “Am I A Candidate” questionnaire at the Campbell Cunningham Laser Center website. The questionnaire only takes a few minutes, and the staff will respond with a prompt, personalized report on what you can expect from LASIK vision correction. The Laser Center website can also tell you much more about the procedure. You can even download literature to read at your convenience.
