How many made resolutions this year? How many have already tossed those resolutions to the side? Most of us have good intentions at the beginning of a new year. Maybe your resolutions include efforts towards a healthier lifestyle or establishing a strategic plan to grow professionally. Whatever your goals may be, never give up on yourself.

Improve Your Vision

As we age, most of us begin having difficulty seeing, especially at night and reading.  Since many times the changes are subtle, we learn to adapt or use glasses or contacts to help us see better and complete our daily activities. But what if there was something better than glasses or contacts to improve vision? GOOD NEWS…THERE IS!


While eyeglasses and contact lenses help improve your eyesight, there is no comparison to the freedom LASIK vision correction surgery provides. Laser in situ keratomileusis, or LASIK, is an outpatient surgical procedure used to treat myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. With LASIK, your ophthalmologist (Eye M.D.) uses a laser to reshape the cornea (the clear covering of the eye) to improve the way the eye focuses light onto the retina. Dr. Shofner has performed more than 40,000 LASIK vision correction surgeries, offers a free LASIK consultation/exam and special discounted pricing to all Military, Law Enforcement, Firefighters and EMTs.


Although LASIK vision correction surgery improves your vision, the problem might be cataracts.  But don’t be alarmed, cataract surgery is very safe and opens up a world of possibilities to see better. Your vision can improve dramatically after cataract surgery. Dr. Shofner, Nashville’s top cataract surgeon, has performed more than 20,000 ocular surgeries.


Did you know Dr. Shofner offers a long-term solution to patients with presbyopia with Raindrop® Near Vision Inlay?  Raindrop® Near Vision Inlay improves near and intermediate vision by simply reshaping the front part of the eye. Raindrop is a small transparent disc called an inlay. In a quick, LASIK-like procedure the Raindrop is designed to help you regain your near vision without the need for reading glasses. Schedule a complementary Raindrop screening to learn more and see if you are a candidate.

By improving your vision, you can improve your lifestyle. Any of these circumstances listed below sound familiar to you…

  • Ever have comfort issues while wearing contacts or glasses?
  • Can you swim, play sports, perform yard work, or other activities wearing contacts or glasses?
  • Have you ever found yourself away from home without your contact supplies?
  • Do you wonder where you placed your readers or have a pair in every room?
  • Too young to sport a chain around your neck to hold your glasses?

If you answer yes to one or more of these questions above, it’s time to schedule an appointment. Improve your vision this year and remember, the decision to have any eye procedure or surgery is the patient’s, and we at Shofner Vision Center respect that decision. Contact us to schedule an appointment today at (615) 340-4733 or schedule online.
