If you are seriously considering having LASIK surgery, I highly recommend getting a consultation with Dr. Blue right away! I decided to have one with him after an unsatisfactory consultation with another doctor. Boy am I got a second consultation! It is free, will clarify any doubts you may have and answer all questions. Dr. Blue has endless years of experience performing the procedure and it shows. His enthusiasm to fix my vision and perform the procedure was palpable. He had wonderful bedside manners, listened patiently to my concerns. I booked the surgery before I left the consultation to have it in two days. My initial consultation was with Ophthalmologist in the Athens, Ga. area who did not give me a very comfortable feeling with choosing him for the LASIK procedure. His practice was clearly overbooked and the doctor appeared rushed to get my consultation over with. While Dr. Blue may have just as many patients he was not in a rush and we ended up chatting about other non-LASIK things. The procedure, itself, was a piece of cake and when it was finished I could immediately see well! Very little post-op pain or soreness... There was normal irritation on the first day akin to putting in a "bad contact" or the like but only when the medication wore off. However, the prescribed medication completely alleviated it. After a short post-op nap, I woke up to perfect vision! I used the pain medication as needed for the first two days (sparingly the second day). 3rd day out there was no eye irritation or pain. I currently have 20/15 vision which is improved from 20/70!Ancillary review: Dr. Blue’s staff are kind and very professional who will help you out in any way they can. This was particularly helpful for me in financing the surgery as they guided me through the options and handled all of my questions. In summary, I was apprehensive to elect LASIK surgery. If you are apprehensive as I was but want clear vision, I highly recommend getting a consultation with Dr. Blue! Feel free to get two consultations with two different doctors as I did but just make sure Dr. Blue is one of them! Not all Ophthalmologists are created equally as I found out. However, Dr. Blue made me feel very comfortable and fixed my vision with the LASIK procedure. I am completely and totally satisfied with my decision and you will too!

I would like to take the time to let anyone that is considering Lasik eye surgery. Dr. Blue and his entire staff are very professional. Suzan and Darlene have made me feel very comfortable, like I have known them for 20 years. They are very honest, nothing was hidden and they are very caring. Dr. Blue is the best. My eye sight just keeps getting better and better. You get what you pay for and I feel like I got even more. Dr. Blue was so good with the final outcome, that my wife even had the surgery also. She was very happy with her outcome. I highly recommend Dr. Blue and his staff and hope this review will help you make the same decision that myself and my wife made. Thumbs up Dr. Blue!!

Dr. Blue is an excellent surgeon, but after working for him for nearly 5 years, he did not honor the promised lifetime enhancement agreement from my laser vision correction because I moved to TN and now I must pay full price as a new patient elsewhere.
Tips & Advices
While the first appointment is the most comprehensive, the majority of appointments with an ophthalmologist begin with a basic eye exam followed by a refraction to test if glasses are needed. Other tests might include an eye muscle coordination exam, a check of pupil response and peripheral vision, slit lamp microscope test to look at the anterior segment of the eye, and an intraocular pressure assessment.
Most eye doctors will charge different amounts for their services, but a basic eye exam with an ophthalmologist can range from $50 to $300. Additional tests and treatment will add to the price.
Ophthalmology subspecialties include strabismus/pediatric ophthalmology, neuro-ophthalmology, retina/uveitis ophthalmology, cornea/anterior segment ophthalmology, ophthalmic plastic surgery, and reconstruction.
Ophthalmologists can diagnose macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, ocular albinism, vitreous traction, cataracts, astigmatism, myopia, retinoblastoma, and many more.
The most popular ophthalmology procedures are cataract, laser eye treatment, and glaucoma surgeries.
