Had my LASIK surgery done here 1 year ago! Love it! Easy and relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff, and couldn't have asked for better results!

Did my eyes 8 years ago and was the best money I ever spent. Had my girlfriends eyes done a month ago. Get what you pay for so I was not willing to bargain shop for this procedure. Both of us left with 20/15 vision.

Dr. Carlson has taken care of both my mother and fathers eyes. He was great - both in the surgical and optometrist skills part of their care and in the comfort part of his job. My father's retinas detached, and for a few months he was completely blind. Dr. Carlson was great in helping him through the mental and emotional strain he went through facing blindness. The doctor was able to help him regain full vision in one eye andpartial in the other. I am grateful that he was there for them.
