JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- 20-20 vision is now a thing of the past.

Local eye doctor Arun Gulani is now performing surgeries on patients with 20-20 vision to make their vision even better.

"Research has proven we could see 20-10," said Dr. Gulani.

That's what Gulani is trying to accomplish.

"The biggest problem why most people do not reach their full potential is because most patients are getting 'cookie-cutter' Lasik," said Gulani.

John Townsend from Alaska says he had Lasik surgery previously.

But he says his right eye started to become blurry, and two eye surgeons turned him away.

Townsend says he found a new option by researching online, an option that brought him across the country to Jacksonville.

"He said not only can I help you, but I can help you get beyond 20-20," said Townsend.

Townsend says his flight took longer than his latest Lasik surgery.

Action News was there for the surgery.

Doctors finished the procedure in just three minutes.

Dr. Gulani says the risks associated with this surgery are very low.

In fact, studies show contact wearers have a higher chance of infection than Lasik patients.
