Facility of the Month: Codet Aris Vision Institute

Dr. Chayet was the very first doctor to complete any corrective laser eye surgery in Western North America.

In 2000, Dr. Chayet received the Lans award, the highest honor given by the International Society of Refractive Surgery. He is also known due to the fact he has been implanting corrective lenses approximately 6 years prior to the United States FDA approval of the procedure. Dr. Chayet and his team currently perform over 700 procedures a month.
The facility is only minutes from the United States border giving it easy access to anyone seriously interested in crossing the border for premium quality care.
