LASIK SPECIALIST
BOARD CERTIFIED PRIMARY EYE CARE PHYSICIAN

Dr. Hair specializes in pre-operative and postoperative care of LASIK.

Dr. Hair has over 15 years of experience in managing refractive surgery patients and has managed over 20,000 cases. She previously served as a Clinical Director of a large LASIK center, where she trained and worked with experienced LASIK surgeons. She also educates local affiliate doctors on pre-operative and post-operative care and management of refractive surgery.

Additionally, Dr. Hair specializes in Implantable Contact Lens (ICL), which is an alternative for LASIK to help permanently correct your vision. With the ICL procedure, an artificial lens is placed in your eye and sits between the iris and your natural lens. An ICL corrects nearsightedness and astigmatism and can eliminate or reduce your need for contact lenses or glasses.
