Patient Testimonial

To Kay, Tabas & Nikam, 

With enthusiasm I report the success Dr. Kay and his team achieved in my LASIK surgery. My vision is flawless! Fifteen minutes of surgery reversed fifteen years of poor vision. I still wake up some mornings and instinctively reach for glasses and I smile when I remember I no longer wear them. The surgery itself showcases the impressive advances in Ophthamology.  

The futuristic array of custom-LASIK equipment used to map the eyes before surgery recalled in my imagination the science fiction films of my childhood. Like any surgery, the expectations and risks of LASIK, and the qualifications of surgeons, should be considered by candidates. Derrick and Dr. Kay fielded dozens of questions I had about my procedure. Kay, Tabas & Niknam also provide a great deal of information online and in print materials, so I had no surprises with the procedure or my expectations. I recommend Kay, Tabas & Niknam, both for general optometry and LASIK, because this practice delivers impressive results.  

Thank You
