We strive to make every patient feel confident about our abilities and technologies. But don’t take our word for it. Here is what some of our patients have to say:

“My vision was bad enough that my driver's license was restricted. I couldn't see to watch TV, read, or use the computer at work. I play two sports: softball and roller derby. With softball I had issues with glare off my glasses during night games. Roller derby is a full contact sport and I probably would not play it with the risk of having an elbow coming at my face while wearing glasses. So now I actually get to do something I wasn't able to do before.

When I made the decision to have LASIK I did a lot of research. Dr. Buckley had the most experience, and his equipment is top-notch. I felt very comfortable from the moment I walked in the door. I knew I was coming to the right place.

The staff is phenomenal, and I felt very comfortable with him. Everybody is on time and very professional. Any questions and fears I had were immediately taken care of. They take good care of you.”

“I'd been wearing glasses since I was 8 years old. When I was 12 they told me I was legally blind. I started thinking about LASIK as soon as it came out. The surgery was great! Dr. Buckley talked me through everything and let me know everything was going great. As soon as the surgery was done, they asked me what time it was, and I could actually look at the clock and see what time it was!

I went home and fell asleep, and immediately when I woke up two hours later I could tell the difference. I felt like I had fallen asleep with my contacts or glasses on, and I kept trying to remove my glasses. I could see perfectly. I'd never been able to see leaves flicker in the sunshine and the wind, and this was the first time that I could. My vision is great: It's 20/15 down from 2400. It's a great feeling.”
Pete S.

“My husband and I both have had LASIK with Dr. Buckley and it has given us so much freedom. No contact solutions for him, no glasses for me, and no prescription sunglasses. We bike, we hike, and we're in the Air Force, so we're looking forward to our next move-maybe to the beach where we can go outside in the sun and water glasses and contact free.”
Kathy D.

“Dr. Buckley is definitely top-notch. He's very knowledgeable, he knows his stuff and tells it like it is and straight to the point. I highly recommend him due to the positive experience I've had and the extremely positive outcome of the surgery. I did not need any enhancements or anything. It's been a one-stop-shop and a great experience ever since. For my family, if the day comes that they need corrective surgery I will have it done here for them.”
Jay K.

“I searched around a lot and talked to several doctors that do LASIK surgery. Dr. Buckley was one that actually came in and sat down and talked with me. He was very personable and answered all my questions. After the surgery he didn't leave me behind, he actually sent me mail, and called me personally to make sure I was alright. I highly recommend him to anyone thinking about having LASIK surgery. I'm very happy with my results. It's been over six months now and it seems like my vision is just getting better.”
