Honoring Dr. Eugene Gabianelli

Dr. Eugene Gabianelli is a highly respected board certified, fellowship trained, ophthalmologist specializing in LASIK surgery, cataract surgery and corneal transplantation. He began performing LASIK in 1995 as a co-investigator of the Summit Omnimed laser during initial FDA LASIK trials. He has amassed extensive LASIK experience including use of Summit, Nidek, and VISX excimer laser systems, having performed over 10,000 Lasik procedures. His bladeless Lasik experience utilizing the Intralase Femtosecond Laser is one of the most extensive in the country, and he trains other surgeons to use this technology. He has taught courses on corneal disease and LASIK surgery to hundreds of ophthalmologists and optometrists from the United States and abroad.

Dr. Gabianelli attended Dartmouth College, earning an A.B. Degree. He graduated from Washington University Medical School in St. Louis. After medical school, he completed an internship at Illinois Masonic Hospital in Chicago, and was named Chief Resident during his first year of his ophthalmology residency at the University of Chicago. Following residency, he chose a surgical fellowship in cornea, refractive and cataract surgery with a private group in Hartford, CT. This group performed the first trials of laser vision surgery in the United States.

After completing his fellowship, Dr. Gabianelli moved to Atlanta, where he was named Medical Director for the Atlanta Medical Eye Center. He practiced there for seven years before founding Georgia Eye Partners. He currently performs surgery at Eye Surgery Center of Georgia, our state of the art ambulatory surgery center, as well as Saint Joseph’s Hospital and Emory Midtown Hospital. He is the Medical Director of TLC Laser Center in Atlanta and Chief of the Division of Ophthalmology at Saint Joseph’s Hospital.

Dr. Gabianelli is a highly skilled and experienced surgeon who displays a commitment to the highest standards of quality care and successful patient outcomes.
