Patient's Comments:
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:
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:
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 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:
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:
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.

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:
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:
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.

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.

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:
Everyone I interacted with at LaserVue Eye Center in Santa Rosa was extremely polite and made me feel comfortable. Dr. Bansal explained everything about the procedure and it went just as he said, "smoothly." Although I had a longer recovery with PRK, it was all worth it. I wouldn't have wanted anyone else to touch my eyes. Thank you!
Doctor's Comments:
Due to Christina's unique corneal profile, she was a better candidate for PRK (photo-refractive keratectomy) than LASIK. The healing time is a little bit longer but in her case, it was the better and safer way to go. She healed very well and part of it had to do with how she heeded and followed all the specific post-operative precautions associated with PRK. Great job Chris!

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.
