Meet Dr. Alexander

Avery D. Alexander, M.D.

Refractive Surgery Specialist

Dr. Alexander is a national leader and pioneer in laser vision correction and sight restoration procedures. He has been performing refractive surgery in the Fox Valley for 30 years. Refractive surgery is designed to reduce or eliminate dependence on eyeglasses or contact lenses, and it is the focus of Dr. Alexander’s practice. He was among the first eye surgeons in the nation to perform LASIK vision correction and he performed the very first LASIK procedure in Wisconsin. He also served as a clinical investigator leading to FDA approval for the VISX excimer laser, one of the earliest LASIK technologies. In addition, after FDA approval, Dr. Alexander was the first physician in Wisconsin and the 2nd in the United States, to use the state-of-the art Allegretto Wave® 400 Eye-Q laser with advanced eye tracking for vision correction.

During his career, he has performed several thousand LASIK and lens implant procedures, constantly refining the current techniques to achieve superior patient outcomes. His search for ever better technologies and vision outcomes led to his development of UltraSight® LASIK, a blade-free all-laser approach to customized LASIK. He also developed PermaClear® Sight Restoration for patients over 40 or patients with cataracts who want to eliminate their dependence on bifocals, reading glasses or contacts. Dr. Alexander’s skill and expertise places him in an elite group of leaders in refractive surgery.

As technology continues to advance, Dr. Alexander will remain in the forefront of medical science, bringing patients the safest, most effective procedures available to improve their vision and their lives.
