Patient's Comments:
I was very excited coming into this. I got very nervous on the day of my procedure but everyone, including the lady at the desk, was extremely nice and made me feel at ease. My biggest amazement was how fast the actual surgery took and the only pain I felt was some slight pressure in the beginning. About an hour after the surgery I felt a little burning but the Valium kicked in and after my nap, I felt nothing. The next day was fabulous--I could see! I haven't had any problems and I am very grateful for the procedure. Thank you very much!!!
Doctor's Comments:
Thank you for sharing your personal experience with all of our current and prospective patients. I believe your honest depiction will help a lot of people get a better sense of how LASIK works. We're enthused that you're happy with your new 20/20 vision!

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.

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.

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:
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.

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!

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:
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:
My experience with the LASIK process has been great! I was fairly nervous about the surgery, but it only took 5-10 minutes and the doctors kept me very calm. I experienced only an hour of pain after the surgery, but it was mainly due to the Valium not having had its desired effect in time. The first week after surgery I was unable to wear make-up and anything that got in my eye was irritating. As long as I kept using eye drops my irritation/dryness in my eyes did not exist. It took a month for my vision to totally stabilize. Overall, the benefit has outweighed the slightly uncomfortable healing process. The only thing I stress is to always use eyedrops when the doctors recommend them! They will help out immensely!
Doctor's Comments:
Being a busy student and working at the same time, Marika was tired of not being able to see. Having a multitude of daily obligations meant she really needed to be on the go all the time, whether it was to go to work or class. She has worn contact lenses for several years and everything has "become a hassle" for her amidst her hectic schedule. Marika was quite nervous on the day of her procedure because she knew that this would be a life-changing event. We really took things slow with her to help ease her anxiety that day and she ended up doing very well. I think she was even shocked herself on how easy the procedure really was when everything was done. Post-operatively, she did experience some level of dryness which for most people, goes away within the first two months. This is the reason why we stress the importance of using lubricating eye drops after the procedure. Today, having poor vision is one thing that Marika will not have to worry about amidst her busy schedule.

Patient's Comments:
Everyone at LaserVue was every helpful in fully explaining the expectations and mechanics of the procedure. The end result has been up to my full expectations. They were all very professional and honest as to realistic expectations and results. Plus, they were very courteous during all the follow-up visits.
Doctor's Comments:
It has been such a pleasure to have Michael under our care for over a year now. He had been turned away several times from some LASIK centers when he initially decided to have the procedure done. A few years ago, the technology was not ideal for people with certain amounts of astigmatism to undergo this procedure. However, with the advent of wavefront technology, Michael now sees as well as he has always hoped for--20/20. Wavefront technology has been around since the latter part of 2003 and I'm proud that LaserVue Eye Center was the first and only center to be equipped with this advanced technology in the Bay Area. It seems like Michael's patience has definitely paid off--congratulations on your new vision!

What an amazing experience this has been--no more glasses or contacts! I am so glad that I finally got LASIK done after more than a few years of dealing with contacts and glasses. The entire process has been made so simple thanks to the team of surgical specialists at LaserVue. I still can't believe that I can see now!!! Thanks to everyone at LaserVue--I'll be sending everyone I know to you.
Doctor's Comments:
Courtney was our patient for one of our educational seminars so prospective patients could have the rare opportunity to watch a live Intra-LASIK procedure narrated by the doctor. We couldn't have asked for a better patient to volunteer for such an event and everything went smoothly. When she returned the day after her surgery, she was happy to find out that she already had 20/20 vision, and something tells me that she won't miss her glasses and contacts very much.

Patient's Comments:
My experience here at LaserVue was simply amazing. It was a very relaxing experience. All the receptionist/staff were very nice and informative and helpful in many ways. Dr. Bansal was great. During the day of my surgery, he was extremely relaxed yet he put me at ease on how the surgery was going to go. The whole surgery staff was very good and made me feel very comfortable and at ease. Dr. Tseng was very informative during my pre- and post-surgical visits. He answered all of my questions, and I had more than quite a few. My whole experience here has been great. They were all helpful, friendly, relaxing, and very informative. Thank you again for giving me better vision than I ever imagined. It was truly an amazing experience. Thank you.
Doctor's Comments:
Michael is a very active athlete and he became increasingly frustrated with his glasses and contacts. He came to us hoping to eliminate his dependence on them forever. He healed very well and all the staff here at LaserVue Eye Center is very happy for his newfound freedom to pursue his goals and hobbies.

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.
