I am recommending this surgery because it is definitely worth it.
Doctor's Comments:
Joseph was tired of wearing his glasses, especially at work. He wanted to free up his lifestyle and be able to enjoy his hobbies without any restrictions. Well, we did just that and he's now enjoying his new vision. After the surgery, he can now see down to the bottom of the eye chart with five lines of improvement.

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.

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:
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:
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.

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.

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.

Patient's Comments:
Having perfect vision and not having to wear reading glasses all my life, it was difficult adjusting to the sudden blur for reading distance within the last five to six years. That was why I decided to get this procedure done and now I can read again without reading glasses.
Doctor's Comments:
David's frustration with his onset of presbyopia was understandable, especially given that he has never needed glasses his entire life. He was a great candidate for CK (Conductive Keratoplasty) despite the strict parameters that this procedure requires. Instead of laser energy used in LASIK surgeries, the procedure reshapes the cornea by employing radiofrequency energy. CK is the number one non-laser refractive procedure done in the United States and David was glad to be a beneficiary of this technology.

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.

This has totally changed my life. Being a surfer, carpenter, and father, I would always lose my contacts. Now I don't have to worry about it any longer. The service at LaserVue Eye Center is fabulous. Don't wait--get the procedure done! Thank you--you have changed my life and opened my eyes!
Doctor's Comments:
For Travis, it was about quality of life. The hassles associated with contact lenses and his poor vision began interfering with his hobbies and career. He was not going to allow anything to get in the way of enjoying his main passion in life, and the surgery did just that. I'm glad LASIK has changed his life for the better.

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.

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:
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.

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!
