This content was provided by Dr. Chronister "The Vision One Laser & Surgery Center was opened in 1999 in Exton as a regional Center of Excellence for eye surgery. The facility, owned by Dr. Levin, Dr. Luminais and Dr. Chronister plus other local ophthalmologists, is a state-of-the-art facility with sterile operating rooms and a comfortable waiting area. More eye surgery is done here than at any hospital or location in Chester County. Specializing in all types of procedures, the center was designed as an alternative to a hospital setting, avoiding many unnecessary distractions. At Vision One, you are greeted immediately upon entry and the admissions procedure is streamlined. Family members can wait comfortably at Vision One for the short time needed or visit Exton’s many shopping areas. The facility is highly accredited and fully staffed by a warm-hearted, good-natured staff of nurses and health care professionals. A pleasant and surgically successful experience for all patients is their primary focus."
