What Do Patients Say About Dr. Hollingshead?

"My vision actually affected a lot of things. It affected my ability to see my son on the soccer field and recognize which one was him without having to wear my regular glasses and sunglasses at the same time...

...My vision now is a 15/20, so it's definitely different than what I'm used to. I can read a book now without having to wear my glasses... I can do all kinds of sports without having to worry about my glasses. I don't have to worry about contacts. My vision is fabulous, I absolutely love it. I just wish I would have done it a long time ago." —Andreas

"I've been wearing glasses and contacts since I was in the sixth grade and doing any outdoor activities has always been difficult with dragging glasses around or having contacts dry up on me and cause irritation...

[Following LASIK surgery] I could see a difference immediately... That was a great feeling after 20 years of wearing glasses.

Hollingshead Eye Center definitely made me feel comfortable with the surgery and they were very informative and very relaxed. So, I felt it was a very professional job and there's no need to worry about being scared about the surgery because everything is painless and very smooth." —Tom

"I've worn glasses since I was a little girl and hated them. Some days I would dream about waking up in the middle of the night and being able to see when I got up in the morning...

When I went in for my consultation the doctor and the staff were so nice, so knowledgeable and I was treated with respect and I felt totally comfortable trusting my eyes to the Hollingshead Eye Center. The experience was so simple, not what I had thought. There was no pain involved. It was straightforward and I was done in 10 minutes...and no more contacts." —Patty
