“The team at Vivid is the best! Doctor B. took great care to explain what was going on during the procedure. I felt very confident choosing them for my surgery. 10/10 would recommend seeing Vivid Laser Center for your surgery.”
“Everyone at Vivid Laser made me feel comfortable and confident before, during and after my Lasik surgery. I had a ton of questions and they were all answered clearly. I had no doubt on surgery day and the care I received was top notch. Dr. B was very kind and thanks to him and his staff, I went from -5 prescription to seeing 20/20 (if not better). Huge shoutout to the amazing ladies who prepped me, checked my vision, helped with surgery etc who were so compassionate, kind and reassuring. Be prepared to shed happy tears and be covered in a warm blanket after surgery. I wish I had gone sooner! Thanks again!”
“Incredible experience from start to finish. Emily was amazing to deal with and helped me through the whole process, including some speed-bumps along the way on my end. The Dr. was so great, made me feel so comfortable going into the procedure and made sure I knew exactly what was going to happen step-by-step. The music and constant conversation throughout the procedure kept me at ease- it was over within minutes and was completely painless.
I would 100% recommend Vivid to anyone thinking about this procedure, I don’t have a single complaint about any point in the process.”
