Patient Reviews
Aug 11, 2016
I had lasik eye surgery for near sightedness 14 years ago, all the way back in 2002 (today is 8-11-2016). I went to a local eye doctor for a routine eye checkup and he told me I did not "need" glasses. I believe my vision was 20/30. My vision was 20/200 pre surgery. Bottom line- if you can't read the alarm clock when you wake up in the am, then this procedure is a must, and I couldn't have gone to better staff or physician. Thank you DR Shahinfar!!! 14 years later and NO visual issues! Cheers
