"For years, I was interested in laser eye surgery, but remained skeptical. The latest advancements and statistics convinced me that LASIK surgery is safe and reliable. I believe my eyes will actually be healthier without contact lenses. The procedure is accepted by the FAA, and even approved for some flying positions in the Air Force. The fact that Dr. Walker, my surgeon, has had the surgery was a big confidence builder.
Restore Vision Centers is a very professionally run organization. The staff and physicians are friendly, helpful, and above all, conservative in their practice. I had mild myopia and astigmatism. I was told not to expect miracles, but my vision is better now than with contact lenses or glasses. My only regret is that I did not have corrective surgery sooner." Bill Shivers, Captain Boeing 737, Major Airline
"During my qualifying exam for the Air Force, the doctor said that I had some of the best results from laser eye surgery he had ever seen. And this is a doctor who qualifies pilots for the Air Force and NASA.
I used to fly cargo throughout the MidweSt., usually at night. While researching LASIK companies, I heard about Restore Vision Centers from a flying buddy. I moved cautiously forward since eyesight to a pilot is so important. I found Restore Vision Centers had the best of everything. The experience was exceptional.
I am now seeing 20/20 out of both eyes, have had no side effects, and I didn't have to spend a fortune! Not having to wear glasses or relying on contacts makes it all worth it." Eric Davison Officer, US Air Force Brooks AFB, San Antonio, TX
"I have worn glasses and/or contacts for over 50 years. My vision was so poor without them that it severely limited my ability to engage in some sports when I was young and other activities as an adult. The miracle to me is that with a simple, painless 10-minute procedure, I can now see clearly without glasses or contacts for the first time in my life! I would recommend this procedure and especially Restore Vision Centers to anyone. The staff is friendly and professional, and repeatedly went out of its way to ensure that my questions were answered and concerns were addressed. A great experience!" Kenneth 'Pat' Waters, Associate Technical Fellow; Chairman, SPEEA Council; Secretary, ASHRAE Air Quality Standards Committee; and US Co-Chair, Mechanical Systems Harmonization Working Group
"Before I had laser eye surgery, I could not see the big E on the eye chart without my glasses. I would put my glasses on before getting out of bed in the morning. Now, I can see 20/15. I know having the laser surgery was the best decision I have ever made. It is a modern-day miracle. Thank you!" Paulette Simpson
"Laser vision correction has been the best investment that I have ever made. I have worn contacts for 17 years and glasses for 30 years. It is so great to wake up in the morning and see the alarm clock clearly without squinting. The procedure was so fast and easy, and everyone was so helpful and made me feel very comfortable. My co-workers laugh at me when I look at our small office clock on the wall and say, 'I can read the clock (giggle), and I'm not wearing my contacts.' I highly recommend Restore Vision Centers to all my friends and family." Anna Garcia, Silverdale
