Surgeon and Founder

Michael D. Bennett, MD, FACS

Imagine life without glasses or contacts- everything in clear, bright, vibrant color. With Dr. Michael D. Bennett, this freedom and comfort is precisely what he strives to achieve every day for people who have chosen to entrust him with their eyes. Dr. Bennett received his B.A. in Chemistry from the University of Virginia while on a scholarship for swimming. He later went on to train at the premier Vitreoretinal Surgery division of Emory School of Medicine, where he completed a two-year vitreoretinal surgical fellowship and was awarded a prestigious Heed Ophthalmic Foundation Fellowship. Dr. Bennett’s leadership role in the development of new vision correction technology gives him early access to the latest advances, and as a result, his patients benefit from next-generation technology before its available anywhere else.

What our

Patients Say

"The service here is commendable. I feel very comfortable when I’m here, and there’s progress with my vision. Always good results. Nothing needs to be improved here."


"Well worth the 3-hr drive I made to get to my first appt. I told Dr. Safi I will follow him anywhere. He’s the best. I trust him; he’s an Army doctor, and they see worse things up at Tripler because of the military exposure. And he’s always in a good mood; helps put you at ease. I recommend you guys to everyone."


"It’s almost like I was born on the day of the surgery.  This has definitely been life-changing for me. Every day I am evolving, finding out things I couldn’t do before that I can do now."

Tiaturi T.
