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:
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:
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:
I think the most exciting part about this procedure is that I can now see. I have brought part of my youth back and it's exciting because I can read the newspaper, see the clock in the morning, which I could not see before the surgery. It's simply the best thing that has happened to me in my life.
Doctor's Comments:
After having spent her life taking care of her friends and family, Virginia realized that it was time to reshuffle her priorities and do something for herself. Having both farsightedness and presbyopia made her distance and near vision blurry and she was ready to put an end to all that. After our consultation with Virginia, I had recommended monovision(setup in which the dominant eye is set for distance vision and the non-dominant eye is set for near vision). After trying monovision, Virginia knew immediately this was the solution she has been searching for--today, she can read and drive without glasses. It has been a pleasure to see Virginia finally get what she has waited patiently for so long, and it has been a major lifestyle change for her. Like what she said, "it's like bringing my youth back" and I sincerely wish this fountain of youth will stay with her forever.

The entire staff was very professional and friendly. The examinations were not rushed and very calm. It was a rewarding experience.
Doctor's Comments:
Having had "perfect vision" during the first 40 years of his life, Emil became frustrated with needing multiple pairs of glasses for distance and up close, so he decided to pay us a visit. He felt a little apprehensive about getting LASIK at his age so we assured him that we have done the procedure on many patients, including those as much as ten years his senior. He is thrilled about not needing a multitude of glasses for various functions and hobbies anymore. Now he can wake up and see!

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:
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:
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.

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:
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:
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.

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:
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.
