Reza Michael Mozayeni, M.D.

Founder and Surgeon of Providence Eye & Laser Specialists, Reza Michael Mozayeni, M.D., is a board certified Ophthalmologist and fellowship-trained Cornea Specialist. He began performing laser vision correction in 1995. With a history of tens of thousands of successful vision correction procedures, Dr. Mozayeni is one of the most experienced eye surgeons in the region and one of the few Cornea Specialists performing and specializing in laser vision correction in the United States.

In 2013, Dr. Mozayeni was chosen as a Charlotte Magazine Top Doctor. He was one of five ophthalmologists named and was the only LASIK specialist and only solo practitioner.

Prior to establishing Providence Eye & Laser Specialists in 2003, Dr. Mozayeni spent 3 years as Medical Director of a national LASIK practice in Charlotte, and 4 years as an Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at Albany Medical College. He has published multiple articles in the field of corneal diseases, spoken at national conferences, and is a contributing author to Cornea, a nationally recognized medical textbook that is referenced by specialists within his field.

As impressive as his credentials are, Dr. Mozayeni’s most defining quality is his attitude regarding patient care. Dr. Mozayeni is:

  • Approachable
  • Truly listens
  • Treats patients as if they were members of his family
  • Is committed to taking the necessary time with each patient
  • Invests in the best technology

Dr. Mozayeni’s goal is to work with each individual patient to determine if you are an ideal candidate, and to discuss the best options that are available for you. He is just as proud of his results as he is about the fact that he turns down 1 in 5 patients for laser vision correction.

Dr. Mozayeni is also respected by his colleagues. The ultimate compliment for any physician is the continued referral of patients from other doctors, especially when those patients are doctors themselves. Dr. Mozayeni has earned the reputation of the “Doctor’s Doctor” as he has performed laser vision correction on dozens of physicians and their families, including a LASIK surgeon as far away as New Hampshire.
