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:
My LASIK procedure was in September of 1999 and it has been the most liberating event for me. My vision without glasses was count fingers at three feet(I could not even read the big "E" on the chart) before LASIK. On the day of the surgery, everyone was so supportive, and during the procedure, Dr. Bansal would tell me what was happening so I knew where to look and what to expect. The actual laser time was just seconds per eye....INCREDIBLE! When I sat up after, I could actually see the faces in the room with me and read the clock on the wall! The very next day I was able to read the 20/20 line on the chart! I was wearing bifocals prior to my procedure; so I knew that reading glasses would be needed afterwards. But they make fun readers and you do not need them all the time. It truly is amazing to drive, watch a movie, and see the alarm clock all without glasses!
Doctor's Comments:
Debbie has worked in an ophthalmology practice for many years helping other people with their visual problems. After having waited many years, she decided that it was time to give herself the gift of sight. She had worked with several ophthalmologists and knew exactly who she wanted to be her LASIK surgeon. Her enthusiasm about her results is so pervasive and the procedure has been such a life-changing event for her that she decided to share her experience with as many people as possible. This is why during your visits here, you'll be greeted by her radiant smile when you first walk into our center. She is always ready and happy to share her personal experience with anyone.

Patient's Comments:
The procedure was painless, quick, and wonderfully empowering. I have been wearing eyeglasses since I was in high school and was always limited by the types of activities that I could participate in. Now I am able to go mountain biking without fear of my glasses falling off. It has been a year since I got the procedure done and I am a very happy patient. Dr. Bansal and his staff are first class. If you're on the fence, I say go for it!!! You won't regret it.
Doctor's Comments:
Adrian decided to get LASIK for the same reasons which most patients have--to get rid of glasses and/or contact lenses. In addition, Adrian's a very active person and enjoys mountain biking tremendously. He has always worried about getting his glasses knocked off while biking, which would render him blind and quite helpless on a treacherous trail. Not only that, he just didn't feel as "free" having to depend on them to see. Since his procedure, he has gained a deeper sense of appreciation for all his outdoor activities and there's no holding him back from going down the steepest trail now.

Everyone was kind and considerate. The doctors took time to answer all of my questions. I never had to wait at my appointments and they were very convenient to schedule. I will recommend you to my friends. Thanks!
Doctor's Comments:
When Stephanie first came in to see us, she was very frustrated with her poor distance and near vision. This has been especially difficult for her because she grew up having "perfect" vision all her life. She had taken an interest in monovision, a setup in which one eye becomes her distance viewing eye while the other is set for reading. Since she had never tried monovision before, I fitted her with contact lenses to simulate the exact setup so she can preview everything to see if she could adapt to it before her procedure. She adjusted very well and can now drive, go the the movies, read the menu and newspaper all without glasses.

Patient's Comments:
My experience with LaserVue has been so wonderful. I had a great treatment and the way they had counseled me through the procedure made it all a very simple and calming experience. I was a bit apprehensive at first because I didn't know exactly what to expect but because they had explained and broken down the procedure step-by-step, I immediately gained confidence with the center and staff there. Now that I had my surgery, it is truly amazing how quickly I noticed my results. I'm very, very happy.
Doctor's Comments:
At first, Maria was a bit unsure about getting LASIK because relatively speaking, her prescription wasn't that high to begin with. She had been walking around blurry without contacts or glasses all her life! After much careful consideration, she decided to have it done because she was tired of not being able to see, especially at night. Today, she is extremely happy about her decision. Not only can she see now but she feels much more comfortable driving at night. Now looking back, she cannot believe that she had walked around with such blurry vision for so many years. We're glad that she'll feel safer behind the wheel now.

Patient's Comments:
It was probably one of the best things I've ever done. I was a little surprised by how easy the surgery was and how little pain there was. Immediately after the surgery, things were a little fuzzy but within a day or two things became much better. You may get a little bit of glare from lights right after the surgery but all that went away, as I have been told by my doctors before the surgery. I'm glad that I did this.
Doctor's Comments:
Roger felt a little nervous before the procedure but he couldn't believe how simple everything was when it was all over. It would be an understatement to say that he had done much better than anything he had ever expected. He was a bit concerned about the initial glare at night but when everything subsided, it reaffirmed his decision to get LASIK in the first place. This is why we spend quite some time counseling patients pre-operatively to ensure that patients have realistic expecations and to help them understand what we can or cannot achieve. It is important to inform patients which of their needs can or cannot be met so they can make an informed decision.

Suzie was an ideal candidate for LASIK, due to her prescription, corneal profile, health status, and realistic expectations. She healed very quickly and smoothly and is enjoying her life without the hassles of contacts.

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.

Patient's Comments:
I had a great experience with LaserVue Eye Center. On the day of my surgery with LaserVue, I was out the door within 45 minutes, with the actual surgery time being less than ten minutes! The next day my vision was already 20/15 in my right eye and 20/20 in my left eye, and I haven't seen like this since I was a kid! I found the entire process to be a great experience and all the visits with the doctors have been wonderful. It was very painless, and I'm still enjoying my great vision. Thank you.
Doctor's Comments:
Having a very demanding career and schedule, Joe has very specific visual needs and wanted us to meet them. Given that he had heard about us from his friend, he was extremely easy to counsel because he had learned most of the information from his friend already. He knew exactly what he needed and wanted from us and we gave him exactly what he had asked for. He was absolutely thrilled the day after his surgery, as he was already seeing 20/15 (better than 20/20)! I don't want to take all the credit for the success, as Joe has been an absolute "perfect" patient from the beginning, in terms of abiding by all of our recommendations. You've earned your new vision Joe!

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.

Patient's Comments:
I have been wearing glasses since I was 10 years old. At age 13, I began alternating between soft contacts and glasses. At 18, I was put into hard contacts. By 29, I had had it with the daily cleaning, dryness, money for cleansers, contacts, and frames. It was time for a change. Dr. Bansal and the staff at LaserVue Eye Center came highly recommended from friends and family members. The surgery was quick and painless--the anticipation was the most painful part! It is now 6 months after my surgery and I went from not being able to see the big "E" to 20/20 vision! I am amazed. I would do the whole thing again and I would highly recommend this facility to anyone contemplating eye surgery. The entire staff is friendly, professional, and full of information. They have made this transition in my life comfortable and successful!!
Doctor's Comments:
Jaime has been such a pleasant patient and joy every step of the way. It seemed like she had been through the whole works--rigid lenses, soft lenses, glasses and finally the solution that would replace all the aforementioned--getting LASIK done. I'm certainly happy with her outcome and congratulations to your new found freedom.

Patient's Comments:
I have worn hard contact lenses for 45 years to correct astigmatism and nearsightedness. My astigmatism was such that with soft contact lenses, I still had three images in one eye and two in the other. When my last pair of hard lenses cracked, I discovered that the laser surgery capabilities were now available to correct my vision. I now have 20/20 vision!
Doctor's Comments:
Lynn had endured many decades of rigid gas permeable lenses and he was definitely ready for a change. He had been told by a few laser centers in the past that he was not a candidate for many years because of the unique features of his eyes. When I had told him the news that he was a candidate, it was like winning the lottery for him. I don't think he'll ever miss wearing those rigid lenses again.

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.
