When Dr. Adam Fedyk decided to become an eye surgeon over fifteen years ago, he had a simple goal: he wanted to help people see better. And perhaps because Dr. Fedyk doesn’t stop working to improve his skill set and patients’ outcomes, that goal was rapidly supplanted by a new one: to give his patients great vision, without the need for glasses or contact lenses. And after almost ten years at the forefront of innovative vision correction surgery, he’s made that target an attainable one.
