LASIK Success Stories

For more comments from these and other patients, please visit Dr. Gulani's website.

"I am in the Army and didn't want the inconvenience of glasses. After detailed research about surgeon experience and expertise, I selected Dr. Gulani. Dr. Gulani analyzed my work requirements and various situations that I could possibly be in to select a different laser vision technique for me. ... I love knowing that I can see perfectly going into a combat area." —Captain Michael J. Holmes, U.S. Army

"My experience was wonderful. I feel Dr.Gulani is the best! He is personable, experienced and very intelligent. I think Dr. Gulani's surgical skills, education for patients and personal touch are beyond comparison." —Dr. Cindy Couzins


"My vision problems included problems with distance and reading of small print. I had glasses for driving as well as reading. My passion is golf, and my vision problems were very inconvenient on the course. Having to wear glasses while playing golf was a real headache. ... I had my surgery on a Wednesday. It was over in 20 minutes, and I was on my way home. Dr. Gulani checked on me later that evening and made sure I was following the instructions he had provided and was not experiencing any pain or side effects. A few days later I was back on the golf course.... without my glasses!!! My vision improved to 20/15. ... My fiancée is having her vision corrected in a few weeks. If you are willing to send someone you love to a doctor, they must be good!!" —David Carnaroli

"When asked why I chose Dr. Gulani to perform the LASIK procedure on me, my answer is, 'I saw first-hand what "LASIK deals" really means for accuracy.' My uncle decided to shop around for LASIK deals and found a center out of Atlanta offering $599 per eye; he took the bait. After the procedure he told me that his vision was 20/80 in one eye and even worse in the other. He said that his eyes burned and itched and it felt like he had sand in his eyes. After all that, he still had to wear contacts and then go back for a second procedure and pay even more money! I learned my lesson from him ... With a co-worker's referral to Dr. Gulani and the 230 Internet articles I researched, I was certain I had found the best. I now have 20/15 vision and would refer anyone and everyone to Dr. Gulani for vision corrective surgery. He is the best!!!" —Christine Zimmerman

"I can't help but get emotional when I speak of Dr. Gulani. I had previously been to numerous noted surgeons and was told that due to the severity of my eye problems, it was just too risky to perform LASIK on my eyes. I would have to accept being legally blind in both eyes, with severe astigmatism and double vision. ... After consulting with Dr. Gulani, I felt in my heart that I had found not only someone I could trust but a man who possessed both the passion and the talent to help me. My trust was not misplaced. I am now seeing 20/20, without the double vision, thanks to his unbelievable gift of healing. Thanks to Dr. Gulani, the quality of my life has improved immensely." —Diane Wink, School Teacher
