What Do Patients Say About Dr. Haavel?

"I went through the laser procedure in KSA Eye Centre using the Epi-K method at the end of June. I got used to life without glasses so quickly that I couldn't even understand how it was possible for me to wake up in the morning and not see clearly. I've forgotten the 11-year period of my life when I used glasses by now. I would like to thank you and all the staff. It was a really positive experience." —Helina H.

"I guess I'm not an average patient, because I didn't wear glasses even though my eyes were both negative and positive. I had glasses but they were too uncomfortable to get used to. So I squinted like mad for years. All I got was frequent headaches and moist eyes. So finally I got myself together and went to a consultation. On the first consultation I didn't get a straight answer whether the operation could help me or not. I was told to wait for their call and the more I waited the more I hoped for a positive answer. Then it came and soon it was time for the operation. I was scared because I had read different experiences and all the things they do to you. Actually the procedure itself was really interesting and there was no reason to fear. On that very evening I surprisingly found that I can see and I didn't have to squint! Now, as almost three weeks have passed, believe it or not – I have no headaches and my eyes don't 'cry.' I would like to thank all the employees of KSA for a splendid and professional service! I wish you the best!" —Urme R.

"If I had only known things will go so smoothly, I would have come here before! Recovery, like the operation, has been smoother than I hoped for and I can see the world clearer than ever before :) I'm still getting used to life without glasses. Besides great sight I also got a load of positive energy and an experience worth remembering, which I've already shared with my friends and colleagues." —Triin T.
