John Kownacki

Dr. Kownacki received his M.D. degree and performed his ophthalmology residency at St. Louis University in Missouri. He is certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology with a specialty in refractive surgery and was the Chief Ophthalmologist for the Air Force at Davis-Monthan AFB in Tucson, AZ. He has performed studies and is a published author in the field of refractive surgery and practices the latest techniques using the most up-to-date equipment.

He was certified on the first excimer laser approved in the U.S. in 1995 for laser correction and is now certified on the latest wavefront and topography-guided lasers and has performed more than 80,000 LASIK procedures. He is one of the most experienced LASIK surgeons in Arizona and the first surgeon in the southwest to perform the newest FDA-approved Custom Ablation treatment.

He is so confident in the LASIK procedure that he has had LASIK himself and performed LASIK on his wife, two children, father, mother, brothers, and many other relatives as well as other doctors. You will not find another surgeon more committed to providing his patients with the best that modern medicine has to offer.
