Why You Should Choose UVA LASIK


We understand that most patients research medical practices and physicians online before making an informed decision. With several LASIK practices in the Central Virginia region, why should you choose UVA LASIK? Here are four reasons:

  1. Dr. Odrich is a Pioneer in the Field of Refractive Surgery 

    Dr. Marc Odrich is a board-certified ophthalmologist who completed specialty training at Columbia University and the Massachusetts Eye & Ear Infirmary at Harvard Medical School. He has dedicated his professional life to research and the development of cutting-edge equipment and techniques, with the goal of providing world-class care to his patients. He helped develop the FDA protocol for refractive surgery, as well as the laser technologies used in the procedures.

    With almost 30 years of experience, he has trained hundreds of doctors and performed thousands of procedures.

    Dr. Odrich’s commitment has resulted in his earning the Best Doctors US, Regional Top Doctor, On-Time Doctor, Patient’s Choice, and Compassionate Doctor Recognition awards.

  2. We are an Affiliate of the Department of Ophthalmology at UVA

    Dr. Odrich serves as Associate Professor at the UVA Department of Ophthalmology, which is part of the highly regarded University of Virginia School of Medicine. Partnering with such a respected institution allows the UVA LASIK team to provide patients with state-of-the-art ophthalmic care in all sub-specialities of ophthalmology, as well as utilize cutting-edge equipment and facilities for appointments and procedures. If it is determined that LASIK and PRK are not suitable for you due to underlying eye conditions, Dr. Odrich and the team can treat your eyes for those conditions in one of the two UVA Clinics.

  3. Dr. Odrich Will Meet With You During Every Appointment

    At UVA LASIK, Dr. Odrich meets with patients during every appointment, from the initial consultation to the post-operative appointment. At other practices, most patients don’t meet with the doctor until the day of the procedure.

  4. We Perform Thorough Examinations to Determine if You Are a Good Candidate for LASIK or PRK

    We spend a lot of time evaluating our patients’ eye and general health, as LASIK and PRK are not optimal solutions for everyone. There are many conditions that exempt patients from these procedures. It is a very important part of our practice to identify whether you are a good candidate and to help you make a well-informed decision with all of your options clearly presented. 

Ultimately, we are here to offer the best patient care possible and to help our patients make informed decisions to better their lives. We offer free consultations. Visit us to see how UVA LASIK can help you.
