Baptist Eye Surgeons

Preserving and Restoring Vision for 40 Years

 A Team of Strength

Baptist Eye Surgeons is not your typical group of surgeons. Ask any of their patients or staff members, and they will be the first to tell you how exceptional these physicians are. But what sets them apart? Marc A. Bodenheimer, M.D., who specializes in Cataract, LASIK, and corneal surgery, sums it up this way: “It’s the group that gives us strength.”

Dr. Bodenheimer is, of course, referring to his fellow surgeons at Baptist Eye Surgeons, a practice that for 40 years has offered the East Tennessee community the full range of adult opthalmologic subspecialties.

The group provides the full gamut of eye care, from routine eye exams and check ups to cosmetic eye surgery and refractive surgery. They also treat eye-related illnesses such as glaucoma, diabetic eye disease, eyelid disorders, and countless other disorders and challenges of the eye. And this team is uniquely qualified to do so.

All of the surgeons are certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and are fellows of the American Academy of Ophthalmology. Their training and experience span the world’s most prestigious universities, specialty societies, and certifications for procedures such as LASIK.

Their collective experience exceeds 300 years, and each physician continues to grow in his or her profession through advanced training in their respective specialties. Couple this commitment to training with a spirit of collaboration, and patients find themselves at ease at Baptist Eye Surgeons, receiving exceptional care by East Tennessee’s most exceptional ophthalmology practice.

Exceptional Eye Care

“We have a truly great group here,” Dr. Bodenheimer says. “This, of course, means better care for our patients. But it also provides a great environment for us to grow collectively as physicians. Patients are really receiving their treatment from ten truly dedicated and highly trained doctors, not just one.”

This dedication to patient care has positioned the practice to be a leader in the industry in treatments and procedures. An example? The Light Adjustable Lens. Used in cataract surgery, it is the first and only intraocular lens that can be customized after a cataract replacement procedure. 

While the lens is becoming more widely used today, it was Baptist Eye Surgeons that brought this innovative new lens to the Knoxville community.

Education for Patients

Not only are surgeons at Baptist Eye known for staying on the forefront of vision health, they also take time to reassure their patients through education. 

Whether in the exam room, or through an Ask Me Anything video on Facebook, they prioritize answering patients’ questions, setting them up for a worry-free experience. They stand by the philosophy that through empathy and integrity they can better serve their patients and hold firm in their commitment to excellence in eye care.

Baptist Eye Surgeons serves patients through three distinct locations in East Tennessee: Downtown Knoxville, West Knoxville, and Morristown. You can visit their website to learn more information about their work or request an appointment with one of their skilled ophthalmologists.
