More About Vision Correction at Ellis Eye & Laser Medical Center

Dr. Ellis specializes in bladeless LASIK, an advanced procedure during which he combines the leading-edge Technolas 217 excimer laser to produce near perfect vision with minimal patient discomfort.

Prior to the surgery, Dr. Ellis uses the latest corneal topography technology to create a unique map of the patient's cornea. This precise information allows Dr. Ellis to identify corneal imperfections and develop an effective treatment plan that leads to the best possible vision correction results. Next, he creates a flap in the outermost layer of the cornea, which is then folded back. After using the excimer laser to correct even the smallest corneal flaws, Dr. Ellis gently places the flap into its original position to act as a natural bandage for the eye. When performed by Dr. Ellis, a premier Bay Area eye surgeon, patients often achieve crystal-clear vision without the need for glasses or contact lenses.

What Do Patients Say About Dr. Ellis?

"My vision is great. I mean, my left eye is 20/20 and right eye is 20/30. It is wonderful to see the freeway signs. It didn't hurt at all. It was quick. It was easy. The thing I like the best is that you get up in the middle of the night, or you wake up first thing in the morning, and you look at the clock and you can see it. You don't have to get up and put your glasses on before you can even see the clock." —Sharon Tocchini

"I had heard of Dr. Ellis for so many years and I've heard nothing but good things about him. And I also knew that he was instrumental in developing the procedures.

My concern as a physician was the fact that if the cornea, the outer layer of the cornea scarred then that could be a permanent problem and could distort the vision. But with the LASIK procedure you don't have to worry about that, because there's really no surgery done directly on the outer layer. They go to the inner layer and the outer membrane is basically intact.

I had myopia, the nearsightedness was pretty bad. I also had very bad astigmatism that made it really difficult to even get a good fit with glasses and contacts, sometimes. And he corrected both of them. He has restored me to 20/20 vision." —Claude Marguette

"I compared the costs of contacts and glasses to the cost of the surgery and I realized that I would come out even in about two years. And then I realized that I had additional expenses like the dog grabbing the glasses, the kids sitting on the glasses, throwing my contacts out one time, that made it just much more worth it.

Dr. Ellis was very comfortable to talk to. He gave me confidence that this procedure would turn out for me and his whole office was just very nice to work with. They were very kind. I was very scared and they were more than kind in how they took care of me. I had it done, now I see with 20/20 vision and it is wonderful." —Kristen Jones

"I researched many doctors. I went to many seminars and I interviewed many doctors and when I discovered Dr. Ellis, I discovered many things about him. Dr. Ellis has been at the forefront of this technology. He has done more surgeries that any of the other doctors I had interviewed and I figured that if I'm going to have this done and if it is something so important as my eyesight, I'm going to go with the best I can find.

It was beyond my expectations and I'm seeing better than I did when I was wearing my glasses. I'm able to see things I couldn't see before." —Fred Turner

"Many people say that they feel a freedom, and I would say yeah. It is definitely a freedom. We videotaped my surgery; it took eleven minutes to do both eyes. It was painless. It's just an amazing experience. I would recommend it for all of my family, my loved ones. I would do it again, but I know I won't have to." —Bob Lim
