Patient's Comments:
My overall experience with laser surgery has been wonderful. I don't know why I didn't do it sooner. My life is 100% better without the pain and hassle of contacts or glasses. The staff at LaserVue are awesome and made me feel relaxed and comfortable. They were super friendly and I have recommended LaserVue to everyone. My only concern about my surgery experience was the pain for about 2-3 hours after the surgery. The pain was worth it though and I would do it again if needed. Thank you for my new eyes!
Doctor's Comments:
Elizabeth's challenge from the beginning was the need for her to be out of contact lenses for at least three weeks before her procedure because of her toric lenses. She was extremely determined to overcome any obstacle along the way and she toughed it out for a whole month. Today, her perseverence has paid off and she definitely does not have to deal with the "hassle of contacts or glasses" anymore.

Patient's Comments:

I've been wearing glasses and contacts since I was in the 7th grade and the idea of not having to take out my contacts every night or being able to actually see the alarm in the morning and even traveling without my glasses seemed so hard to believe. Now after my surgery and being able to do all of that is simply amazing! Dr. Singh and her staff were extremely kind, assuring and caring throughout the entire process, which really made this a surprisingly pleasant experience. I would recommend LaserVue to anyone interested in LASIK surgery--it was truly awesome!

Patient's Comments:
Everyone I interacted with at LaserVue Eye Center in Santa Rosa was extremely polite and made me feel comfortable. Dr. Bansal explained everything about the procedure and it went just as he said, "smoothly." Although I had a longer recovery with PRK, it was all worth it. I wouldn't have wanted anyone else to touch my eyes. Thank you!
Doctor's Comments:
Due to Christina's unique corneal profile, she was a better candidate for PRK (photo-refractive keratectomy) than LASIK. The healing time is a little bit longer but in her case, it was the better and safer way to go. She healed very well and part of it had to do with how she heeded and followed all the specific post-operative precautions associated with PRK. Great job Chris!

Patient's Comments:This procedure was simpler than I thought it would be. My vision is already the way it was when I was a kid--less than a day later! The staff and doctors were all professional, friendly, and encouraging.
Doctor's Comments:Being a math professor, Beth already knew the mathematical formulas behind the science and technology that we have here at LaserVue Eye Center. She had done ample research and came in inquiring specifically about Intra-LASIK, which was exactly what she ended up getting. I'm glad and proud to have restored her "youthful" vision.

Patient's Comments:
A few days after my surgery, I could not believe what I had missed out on for over 15 years! I thought I was seeing everything in the world with the help of glasses and contact lenses before I had the surgery, but I was wrong. I don't know how it's possible or how to explain it but I see more colors and crisp beautiful details of everything that I didn't even know existed before. This is a life-changing experience and all the consistent care provided by LaserVue throughout the whole process really made me feel safe and comfortable. Also now I realize that there were activities that I had subconsciously avoided doing because I felt disabled(to see). It's amazing to feel that I now have this ability to see all the beauties of this world--thanks to LaserVue!
Doctor's Comments:
Rie's comments really resonated with the general concensus from most LASIK patients after their procedure. There's this sense of empowerment to pursue their hobbies and interests without any restriction or limitation. In addition, it's not uncommon for patients to actually see better after the surgery than their pre-operative vision with glasses and/or contacts. I'm glad that you're seeing the world better and enjoying your life more now.

Patient's Comments:
The staff at LaserVue has treated me with the utmost respect and courtesy. I never felt like I had any questions because everything was explained to me so well. The surgeries were handled in a very professional manner with literally no discomfort! I commend you on your selection of staff. I'm very glad that I had the surgery and even more so that I had selected your center. Thank you.
Doctor's Comments:
Wilota's cataracts were very mature when she had first come in to see us. Not only were they interfering with her vision, but her lifestyle as well. Now she's able to resume and enjoy many of the activities she has avoided for a while as a result of her cataract development. Congratulations on your new vision!

Doctor's Comments:
Armando has had poor vision for as long as he could remember. He has never seen well with his glasses because of the type of prescription he had. Well, it felt like eternity to him waiting for his 18th birthday so he can have this procedure done and throw away his glasses for good. The FDA requires every patient to be at least 18 years old in order to get LASIK. Well now he'll have countless more decades to enjoy with the vision he has always wanted.

Patient's Comments:Fantastic! I have received complete support in all aspects of my care. The doctors and staff have been caring, responsive, and wonderful to work with. I highly recommend LaserVue Eye Center to anyone with vision problems.
Doctor's Comments:As a Superior Court judge, Andy knew better than anyone else to go with a reputable surgeon with a solid record. He healed very well, partly due to how carefully he followed all the post-operative instructions and recommendations. I realize that he had number of refractive laser centers to choose from and the entire staff here at LaserVue feels very honored that he has chosen our center for his personal best vision correction and care.

Patient's Comments:
Everything LaserVue Eye Center had told me was exactly the way the result turned out--I was very pleased with the job they did.
Doctor's Comments:
Frustrated with her poor vision and having multiple pairs of glasses, Barbara opted for monovision. This is a setup when one eye is set for distance while the other is corrected precisely for up close viewing. There's an adaptation period involved when patients have never tried this before but once they adjust, they get to enjoy the "best of both worlds." I tell every patient that monovision is not for every individual but when it works for you, it's a great multi-functional setup. Barbara had already tried monovision with contacts before seeking our help to make it permanent and the results turned out wonderful. She can now drive and read the menu at a restaurant without glasses.

I am now able to read music, view a computer screen, decipher posters, and follow the subtitles on the television without wearing my reading glasses. Thank you!
Doctor's Comments:
Being a hyperope (farsighted) and presbyope, both her distance and near vision became increasingly challenging. Her demanding job required her to have great vision and sometimes her life even depended on it. So for her, it was about more than just convenience and lifestyle--it was about safety. Today she feels not only safer, but more confident and efficient at work with her new vision.

This is the best investment I have ever made! Thank you so much for giving me back the freedom to live my life without the restrictions of poor vision. I have annoyed all of my family and friends by reading the signs along the side of the road as we go on road trips! I am also the best walking commercial to this procedure. I think I have convinced at least a dozen people to have this done. Finally I want to thank your office and staff for being both professional and accommodating to my needs and questions. The staff and doctors have made me feel comfortable every step of the way. Thank you again.
Doctor's Comments:
Stephanie is a true testament to the fact that sometimes your friends and family are your best and most honest resources--that was how she had heard about us and how many of her friends will experience this life-changing procedure themselves. Thank for your enthusiastic spirit and all your personal referrals. We look forward to helping your friends and family regain their independence as well.

Patient's Comments:
I had heard all the stories about LASIK. What was especially wonderful for me was how the staff assisted me. They were helpful, kind, and extremely supportive. The surgery itself was over in minutes and yet I will have a lifetime to benefit from what was provided! I am 31 and have depended on contacts since they age of eight. Today was the first time in my life I could wake up to see my surroundings. Thank you all so much!! You do wonderful work but the extra personality you add to what you're doing is what truly makes you stand out!! Thank you all!
Doctor's Comments:
Courtney was extremely nervous and anxious on the day of her procedure which was completely understandable given her prescription and the major lifestyle change she was about to undergo. She had been wearing rigid gas permeable lenses ever since she was in elementary school and this was one of the biggest steps she was about to take to become free of glasses and contacts altogether. It has been delightful seeing Courtney during every post-operative visit because of her glowing joy and genuine gratitude which are so contagious that she leaves the entire staff in the office with a smile every time.

The outer office staff is great, friendly, and happy. The doctors are wonderful. You are stuck with me forever. Thank you.
Doctor's Comments:
Sandra has always faced the challenge of having an asymmetric prescription, in which one eye sees a lot better than the other. Her eyes became increasingly strained due to the disparity between her eyes so she decided to have LASIK in her right eye. After her procedure, she started seeing better in her right eye than her left but I'm quite certain it's a change that Sandra will have no problem sdjusting to. We're perfectly happy to be "stuck" with you as a patient forever.

Patient's Comments:
LaserVue answered every question and provided all the necessary information to alleviate any fear I had prior to my procedure. I had only one eye done and it was literally over before I thought it had begun. Dr. Bansal said the laser was adjusting to my eye and I thought it was still doing that, when he said that we were done. I had no pain or discomfort during the procedure or after it. I had heard that it might feel like having sandy grit in my eye after the procedure, but I experienced no discomfort. I highly recommend this office and procedure to everyone.
Doctor's Comments:
Traci had worn toric contact lenses for a number of years before she decided it was time for a change. Although her left eye has a small amount of astigmatism, I had recommended to her the option of treating only her right eye first because her vision in that eye was significantly worse. After her procedure, she was so satisfied with her new vision that she didn't see a need to have Intra-LASIK treatment in her left eye. Now her vision in her right eye is much better and her eyes feel more comfortable and balanced than ever before.
