What Do Patients Say About Dr. Bindi and the Laser Eye Center of Silicon Valley?

"I found Dr. Bindi through yelp, and so I had to write a review after my wonderful experience! I had my surgery done about 2 months ago. The day of surgery went very smoothly. All of the staff is really nice and makes it their priority to talk to you and make you feel as comfortable as possible. I was nervous going into surgery despite the reports I'd seen saying it didn't hurt... but its true, it doesn't hurt at all! I didn't feel a thing and it was done very quickly, I was like wow it's done already? I had slight discomfort the night of the surgery, but no pain at all. The first few days my eyes were very blurry
(as expected) but by day 3 I was back in the swing of things, and able to see much clearer still not 20/20 that takes time. However, I went back today for my second post op check up (2 months later) and my eye site is now above 20/20!
I couldn't be happier with the experience I'm so glad I did it, it has to be one of the best decisions I made. Dr. Bindi and his staff are so awesome and I don't think it would have gone as smoothly if they weren't so helpful and supportive along the way! Thanks again Dr. Bindi!!" —Yelp User Brianna J., 03/13/2014

"It's been a month since I had my LASIK surgery done by Dr. Bindi and I couldn't be happier. It truly is so amazing and I can honestly see so much better than I could with glasses or contacts. I was a bit stressed and the valium didn't work for me, but Dr. Bindi was really nice and patient and put me at ease. The procedure was literally painless and actually seemed much quicker than I expected. The worst part was the smell of my burning eyeball, but I held my breath at the first whiff and it was fine. The main thing I was worried about was the night vision stuff I'd heard about, but so far it hasn't been a problem for me. I can still see better at night than I could with glasses or contacts. I do have to wear reading glasses, but it's worth it for me to be able to see everything else in the world crystal clearly. Dr. Bindi is nice and professional as is the rest of his staff and the office is modern, clean, and easy to find. I highly recommend him all around!" —Yelp User ms. jared g., 02/11/2014

"Dr.Bindi and staff are very friendly, knowledgable and make the whole experience enjoyable. Yup you read it right, Surgery was enjoyable. I just got my LASIK done today and let me tell you, if I've known how fast and painless it was going to be I would have done it many moons ago. During the surgery Dr. Bindi walked me through the whole process and made me feel completely at ease. I felt no pain at all. Trust me when I say it was more of a light show then a surgery! I was able to see better immediately after surgery. No pain, no aching, no discomfort. Dr. Bindi is absolutely ammaazzing!" —Yelp User Nancy N., 12/10/2013
