Patient's Comments:
I had one of the worst astigmatism cases and for years my eyes were not even considered correctable with laser surgery until I visited Dr. Bansal at LaserVue and to my amazement, he told me I was a candidate. His warm and kind advice convinced me to have the surgery even though I was very apprehensive about how the results would turn out. Within 24 hours, I was seeing 100% better and much better than any of my expectations. Dr. Bansal and his staff have been so professional and courteous. The surgery was painless and within a couple of weeks, I was so thrilled and excited about all of my decisions. I highly recommend Dr. Bansal, his staff, and LaserVue for all they do. I wouldn't trade my vision now for anything. I thank God and the doctors and staff at LaserVue each and everyday for my new and precious vision. Thank you.
Doctor's Comments:
Esther had been told by numerous other centers that her prescription was too high to get this procedure done. What had brought her to us was our Allegretto laser platform, which is capable of treating astigmatism up to six diopters. I still remember how astounded she looked when I told her that we would be able to help her. She had endured and struggled for many years with poor vision. This procedure has not only granted her the ability to see clearly but it has liberated her from many restrictions that had limited her way of life. Enjoy your new vision Esther!

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:
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!

Wow! I can see. I have been working in the LASIK field for about two and a half years now. Seeing patients getting it done, it is amazing. Having experienced it myself, it is the best thing I can ever ask for-- not to wear contact lenses or glasses anymore. Dr. Bansal is truly a good surgeon. Dr. Bansal, thank you for my vision. You are the best!!!

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:

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:
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:
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:
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.

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:
I am so thankful for the freedom that has been given to me by the staff at LaserVue. I began my journey with very poor vision and I have 20/20 acuity now. I love waking up and being able to see everything without glasses or contacts. I'm very active and I can see in the pool now, while wakeboarding and biking--it really is a whole new world for me. Thank you all so much!
Doctor's Comments:
Carrie had very specific needs when she came in to our center because of the unique shape of her cornea(outermost surface of the eye). Even though some centers had recommended her to have PRK(photo-refractive keratectomy), she was a bit apprehensive about having that procedure because of the longer healing time. Luckily, our IntraLase technology was able to deliver exactly what she was looking for--fast healing with the versatility to treat almost any corneal profile. Today, Carrie is able to enjoy her weekend outdoor adventures without any restrictions.

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.

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!

For most of my life I have been wearing glasses until I decided to get LASIK eye surgery. Wow--what a difference it has made in my life! I now have 20/20 vision and I feel so much better about myself. I use the computer a lot at work and what a difference I've noticed. I love to go snowboarding for fun and I don't have to worry about them falling off. I thank all the doctors and staff at LaserVue Eye Center for doing a fabulous job. I can't thank you enough!
Doctor's Comments:
Tanya came in feeling very frustrated about her thick reading glasses and was ready to toss them away. In addition to that, her distance vision has started getting blurry and she did not want to wear bifocals at her age. She grew up with significant farsightedness which has hindered her from enjoying many outdoor activities. After her Intra-LASIK(all-laser LASIK) procedure, she not only did away with her thick reading glasses but she can now see better than what she has ever seen. Most importantly, she can now enjoy all the outdoor sports year-round without any visual restrictions.
