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:
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!!!

I am now able to read music, view a computer screen, decipher posters, and follow the subtitles on the television without wearing my reading glasses. Thank you!
Doctor's Comments:
Being a hyperope (farsighted) and presbyope, both her distance and near vision became increasingly challenging. Her demanding job required her to have great vision and sometimes her life even depended on it. So for her, it was about more than just convenience and lifestyle--it was about safety. Today she feels not only safer, but more confident and efficient at work with her new vision.

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.

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!

CF = Count Fingers (Unable to read eye chart).


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 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.

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 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:
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:Fantastic! I have received complete support in all aspects of my care. The doctors and staff have been caring, responsive, and wonderful to work with. I highly recommend LaserVue Eye Center to anyone with vision problems.
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.

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.

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.
