Experience You Can Trust

To most of our patients vision correction surgery is one of the most desirable, life-enhancing procedures. LASIK (iLASIK) is one of the recent advances of vision correction. With every passing year we spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on new equipment to maintain our state-of-the-art facilities so that we can provide the most advanced eye-care. This is a brief history of our experience in the field.


Ayman Boutros, MD performs his first vision correction surgery (radial keratotomy) using the Russian technique of microsurgery. Our first office is opened in Sterling, Virginia.
