Hear what patients have to say about Ellis Eye and the IQ Laser Vision family!
I had my initial consultation with Christine T. She provided me with all the detail information, as well as what to expect regarding the procedure.Later on, it was a smooth 20 minutes long procedure performed by Dr. Lin.I have lost my computer glasses after the operation, and I dont bother to look for it.
Great staffs. They continuously to make sure I felt comfortable and ensure nothing will go wrong. I got the SMILE procedure and the whole operation took about 20mins. The doctor talked to me during the whole thing so everything went by quickly. Felt not pain and had no issues. Highly recommend the procedure whether its lasik or smile. Worth every penny
Dr. Erica Liu is amazing from beginning to end! I received the SMILE procedure and couldnt be happier. It really was a life changing experience. All staff was friendly and always checked in with me to see if I had any questions or needed anything. I was SO nervous and almost didnt go the day of procedure. Boy, so glad I did. I was worried about keeping my eyes open or moving. But all went smoothly all thanks to Dr Liu and her team.
I cannot believe how incredible fast lasik is! The staff is professional and kind. Im very happy I went through with the lasik procedure. Following the directions and accepting the process helps with the anxiousness and produces the best outcome. Thank you so much for correcting my vision IQ laser vision center!
I was pitched the SmILE Operation and its been 8 months since I undergone the operation. I was referred to this location since it handled my moms Lasik operation a few decades ago.Christine was the consultant; she was VERY enthusiastic about the new SmILE procedure and went really big on pitching me this method. Im not really big on overly enthusiastic attitudes, but she was very attentive whenever I texted her regarding daily maintenance/tasks leading up to the procedure.Doctors:I had 2 different eye doctors for my examination (before and after the procedure) and they both respectively exuded confidence that reinforced they know exactly what they were doing and were quick to dispel any misconceptions I had about the whole process (procedure and recovery).Operation:The operation takes place in their City of Industry Location and was performed by Doctor Hofmeister (1 of the 2 capable doctors in CA they tell me). She checks up with you with a small chat pre surgery so you know what youre getting yourself into and whats going to happen during and after the procedure. During the procedure, shes practically a strategy guide; she tells you whats gonna happen and it happens 2 seconds later, step by step.Immediately after the surgery, vision resembled a blurred vaseline view of the world.After 1 month: eyes are still sensitive and the world still looks off.After 3 months: things start to settle and felt more alright.After 6 months+: I feel the new status quo has been settled. Im disappointed that I havent achieved 20/20 vision (though, case by case basis means Im not guaranteed max optimized results), but I am surprised at times of my vision performing better than I expect it to.Only setback to come from the procedure:I noticed I used to be able to binge-watch or read something for hours on end, but now when I get tired, my vision practically blurs over and my vision becomes unreliable. Not optimal when Im trying to push my body past its limits, but I suppose its a practical con to the whole procedure.Again, results are a case by case thing and everyone is different, etc. If you're bad with keeping track with portable wearable accessories, maybe consider it; also keep in mind less invasive procedures are always better.
