Excellent physician. Had Lasik procedure completed in 9/21/16. Decided against monovision initially due to history of migraines and did not want any increased triggers. Positive experience. Front office staff was not warm and fuzzy but defiantly knowledgeable and efficient. Unfortunately, my eyes had considerable change after the procedure which both ophthalmologist and optometrist informed me could happen, but I had also known this as I researched this considerably before deciding to go ahead with the procedure. I was scheduled for a recheck within a week. Physician recommended trying monovision, so I would not need to utilize readers in the future. I decided to try monovision with the understanding that if I had problems, the physician would be willing to correct the 2nd eye. Had correction completed on 12/14/16. Again positive experience. As of today (7/15/17), I have had no complaints. My vision remains 20/20. I do have a bit of eye dryness in the one eye occasionally but overall I am very happy with my experience. If I had known how much of a positive effect this would have for me, I would not have waited so late in my life… should have done this years ago!
