Vision Surgery

Learn more about common eye surgeries:

  • Start here for an overview of the different types of surgery to correct myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism; and the merits and drawbacks of each.
  • It’s the most popular vision correction surgery, by far. Learn what to expect before, during and after the procedure.
  • Complications from LASIK are few, but they do happen. It’s important to understand the risks, and how to minimize them.
  • Successful LASIK surgeons get that way from experience and the ability to screen out poor candidates for the procedure. Here’s the list of what makes you a good candidate.
  • An alternative to LASIK, PPK is a no-flap eye surgery. Learn about the advantages and disadvantages, as well as what to expect.
  • A number of relatively new procedures are addressing the age-related decrease in ability to focus on near objects, that was once correctable only with bifocals.
  • These small lenses or optical devices are inserted into the cornea to alter its shape and correct vision problems.
  • Sometimes because of disease or injury, the cornea becomes so damaged that problems cannot be corrected with eyeglasses, contacts, or refractive surgery such as LASIK.

To All Our Established Patients,

The office of Dr. Michael J. Morris has enjoyed serving patients at our Hillview (approximately 15 years) and Shepherdsville (approximately 5 years) office locations. Due to staffing shortages and other challenges related to the pandemic, the decision has been made to cease seeing patients at these two locations effective January 15, 2022. I will start seeing established patients and new patients starting January 17, 2022 at Visionworks Doctors of Optometry, located at 4655 Outer Loop, Louisville, KY 40129). This practice is between the Red Lobster and  McAlister's Deli on OuterLoop (going toward the Jefferson Mall). I will see patients there on Mondays, Fridays, and Saturdays. I look forward to continuing to serve your eye care needs at this location.  The office number to the new location is (502) 966-2020. When calling for an appointment, please request me by name and the staff will ensure that I see you at your appointment time. In addition, the office telephone number you have contacted me at previously (502) 968-2720 will still be active for leaving messages and requesting glasses or contact lens prescription or any other information in your file. The messages will be checked daily, please allow additional time to return your calls during this time of transition.

Sincerely,

Dr. Michael J. Morris, OD
