       Eye Associates of the South periodically donates LASIK laser eye surgery to Gulf Coast first responders to help them be safer on the job, with better vision. 
       LASIK eliminated the need for Biloxi police investigators Ashleigh Pack and Nick Sonnier, Biloxi firefighter Charles Parker, Biloxi police senior patrolman Robert McKeithen, and Mississippi Department of Marine Resources officer John Ladner to struggle on their jobs with eyeglasses or contacts.

    Our refractive surgery specialist, Rainna Bahadur, M.D., performed their LASIK with state-of-the-art Z-LASIK technology – using a blade-free Femtosecond LDV Laser. Ours is the first Gulf Coast eye practice from New Orleans to Mobile to offer Z-LASIK. This laser improves results and reduces healing time. We use the gold standard CustomVue system to complete the LASIK procedure.
