Patient's Comments:
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:This procedure was simpler than I thought it would be. My vision is already the way it was when I was a kid--less than a day later! The staff and doctors were all professional, friendly, and encouraging.
Doctor's Comments:Being a math professor, Beth already knew the mathematical formulas behind the science and technology that we have here at LaserVue Eye Center. 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.

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:
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:
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.

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:
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.

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.

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!!!

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'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!

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.

I have nothing but good things to say. I was extremely nearsighted before the surgery and 20/20 the next day. The staff was very professional & competent--they made the whole process extremely easy. I can't recommend them and the surgery enough.
Doctor's Comments:
It was so rewarding to see the expression on Phil's face when he came back the day after his procedure--it was pure joy and disbelief. Given how nearsighted he was to begin with, it was no wonder how shocked he was with the immediate outcome. These are the moments which constantly remind myself and every staff member here at LaserVue why we do what we do everyday.

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:
I'm very glad that I did this and don't have poor distance vision anymore.
Doctor's Comments:
Cindee had originally come into our office in 2003 and expressed her desire to lessen her dependence on glasses as much as possible. I had recommended her to have one eye done first so she could have a monovision setup after the surgery. For two years, she has enjoyed the best of both worlds but she finally came back two years later and we treated her other eye to improve her distance visual acuity as well. Even though she is now more dependent on reading glasses, she's enjoying her balanced and clear distance vision with both eyes. She understands that there's a compromise in every situation but the most important thing was that Cindee took her time to find this out herself. We're glad that everything ended up working out for her.
