“I love practicing ophthalmology. It is extremely rewarding to help patients improve their vision. To have a patient that has worn glasses since elementary school become spectacle-free is exhilarating.” - Kathleen Leone, M.D.
Kathleen Leone, M.D., F.A.C.S. is a board-certified LASIK and cataract surgeon at Eye Associates of Wilmington and has practiced in Wilmington since 1998. She graduated cum laude from the Georgetown University School of Medicine.
A Lieutenant Commander in the U.S. Navy, Dr. Leone served eight years of active duty before joining the Wilmington medical community. She served at Bethesda Naval Hospital, Guam Naval Hospital and with the marines at Camp Lejeune Naval Hospital.
She is a fellow of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American College of Surgeons. She began performing refractive surgery in 1995, and has been awarded certifications in iLASIK, CustomVue® Intralase® laser vision correction as well as Visian ICL™ implantable collamer lens insertion.
Dr. Leone states: “The blade-free customized Intralase / VISX S4 LASIK procedure is absolutely state of the art. There is no better time to have refractive surgery from a technological viewpoint. It’s safe and wonderfully precise. We are the only fixed base iLASIK provider in eastern North Carolina. As such, we have an unprecedented edge over our competitors. It is an awesome privilege to perform this procedure. Get ready for a life changing event!”
Sometimes, patients want LASIK but are not ideal candidates – which is why the in-depth, 2 hour consult offered at no charge is critically important. There is something available for those patients, too! The intraocular collamer lens (ICL) is a fantastic option. Click here to learn more.
Dr. Leone specializes in cataract surgery using the latest intraocular lens technology. One of her goals in performing cataract surgery is to provide the patient with clear vision once again. However, with the advanced lifestyle intraocular lens implants (Restor), a secondary goal, if the patient chooses, is to decrease the patients’dependence on prescription glasses, contact lenses and even magnifiers from the drugstore! The possibilities are HERE waiting for YOU!
Dr. Leone performs iLASIK in our Wilmington location. For the convenience of her patients, she performs cataract and other refractive surgery at Wilmington SurgCare, Atlantic Surgicenter, New Hanover Regional Medical Center and Dosher Memorial Hospital in Southport.
Here are a few quotes from some of her patients:
“The process was fantastic from start to finish. The staff and Dr. Leone were incredible. I should’ve done this a long time ago. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism and great service. The gift of sight is priceless.”
Nicole Rollins, iLASIK Patient
“It’s a whole new world. I can see EVERYTHING!”
Renee Hutto, iLASIK Patient
"Although I was nervous going in, I've had a positive experience. The staff was helpful and I am absolutely thrilled with my results! I can read and I can see the flight of a golf ball down the fairway!"
Ellen Johnson, Restor Lifestyle Lens Patient
"If there is one word to describe Dr. Leone it would have to be dynamic. She just exudes confidence in her abilities and conveys that exact feeling to her patient, both for the surgery and the outcome to expect. My surgery was a cataract removal with intraocular lens implant , from which I now have 20/25 vision, that is expected to get better. I have not worn glasses since and it feels terrific to be able to read a menu in dim light, or directions on a bottle etc. I have no reservations regarding referrals to my family and friends, I have every confidence in Dr. Leone’s skills as a surgeon and doctor."
