5 out of 5 stars Latisse

Latisse - San Diego, CA

Latisse when used properly delivered exactly as intended.

4 out of 5 stars LASIK

Much Improved Vision - San Diego, CA

Didn't really meet the doctor pre surgery, which was fine. So really didn't talk to him at all until after surgery for my next day check up. He's fine. Not a lot of interaction, but then again I didn't have many questions or concerns.

25 Year Old Lasik Patient - San Diego, CA

The doctor was very kind and informative. He checked on my eyes and told me that they were healthy. The doctor was very knowledgable on how I should be seeing things and made me feel more comfortable. He seemed like somebody I could ask anything. He helped me prepare for this big procedure and I am grateful.
