High Definition Laser Cataract Surgery™ Testimonials

“I had the best experience having my cataracts and vision correction surgeries done by Dr. Vrabec. From the beginning to the end of my experience at Valley Eye was very professional. I felt like I was very well cared for and very well informed at every step along the way. Thank you so much, Dr. Vrabec and Dr. Jensen and all your staff. I will definitely recommend Valley Eye Associates to all my friends and family.”


“I just had a cataract and lens implant in both eyes done at Valley Eye. I would like to thank Dr. Vrabec and his staff for the great job they did. My eyes are great thanks to them. It is a wonderful place and the care is the best. Wonderful people. Thank you all.”


“I appreciate Valley Eye Associates for their dedication and commitment through the cataract surgeries I had. My situation was complicated by RK scarring and severe astigmatism. Dr. Vrabec, Dr. Scanlon, and staff went out of their way to help explore options. They were thorough in pre-surgery testing to determine the best way to approach the surgery. I am so pleased with the results. I can see better than I have been able to see in years. They were also careful in explaining financial options, making sure billing was correct, and very willing to work with insurance and payment options. I have dealt with several ophthalmologists around the country, and this clinic is one of the best I have ever experienced. I recommend them highly.”


“Suddenly developing cataracts in my early 50s was shocking and scary. I researched the doctors available in Wisconsin and found Dr. Vrabec. His education, experience, and reviews made me choose him and the treatment, staff, professionalism, and results made me a lifetime fan. Thank you all for the awesome care you have given me. You all made this health challenge a breeze.”


“Dr. Vrabec and his staff are first rate. The cataract procedure was the easiest operation I have ever experienced. I am grateful for the kind, courteous service that I received from each and every staff member.”


“Dr. Vrabec was recommended to me by my eye doctor. I would recommend him to my friends and family. He is a doctor who is easy to talk to and he answered all of my questions. He is an excellent surgeon as well as being a pleasant man.”


“Having cataract surgery with a ReSTOR implant was the best decision I ever made! Just think: as a beginner golfer, I can actually see the golf ball. As a fisherman, I can tie the small line of fishing hooks. As a bass singer in the choir, I can read the notes and music, all without the dreadful glasses! I would recommend Dr. Vrabec to anyone with vision problems.”


“I am absolutely thrilled with my new eyes! I was extremely nearsighted before, so this feels like a gift. I am so happy with my decision to have cataract surgery with a Crystalens!”


“Today is the first time that I haven’t worn glasses since I was 8 years old. I wish I would have had cataract surgery sooner!”


“I’d like to say thank you! My job consists of driving a forklift and this made a world of difference in my life! It will be nice to have better vision for reading, and I’m very satisfied with my vision for driving, too.”


“The cataract procedure seemed to go fast and was painless. I felt at ease the entire time and felt I was in good hands with Dr. Vrabec.”


“Astounding! Amazing! I now have crystal clear vision following years of cataract-obstructed vision. Many thanks to every team member at Valley Eye for personal, thorough, and professional care.”


“I decided to have cataract surgery and be free of wearing glasses. I now have 20/20 vision in both eyes and am thankful to Dr. Vrabec and Valley Eye for that great success!”


“I recently had cataract surgery with a ReSTOR implant. My wife had the same surgery in 2008, and everything turned out great. I’ve had the same experience and have already recommended a friend to Valley Eye. All staff were pleasant, informative, and a pleasure to be with.”


“I have been wearing glasses since kindergarten. At 45, I was starting to have to depend on wearing readers. With my career in law enforcement, it was difficult to have to wear readers to read my mobile data computer and watch the road at the same time. Having the corrective eye surgery now gives me the ability to do both without jeopardizing myself or anybody else. I am very happy with the overall experience of the entire process. The staff at Valley Eye Associates and the Pinnacle Surgery Center are very, very professional and friendly. They took the time to explain every step of the process and make sure that this was the right alternative for me and if not, would tell me I would not be a good candidate. Highly recommended, it was a life-changing experience.”


iLASIK Testimonials

“Valley Eye took care of me from the moment I walked in to the moment I walked out. They answered all my questions leaving me comfortable to leave and know everything I needed at home. Thank you so much for my ‘new’ and improved eyes!”


“The staff was great! Made sure all of my questions were asked before I left the office, every time! Everyone was friendly, professional, and calming! They triple-check measurements before they start the procedure. Great experience!”


“The team at VEA was exceptional. From the initial consultations all the way through my follow up appointments, I had all the information I needed and felt I was in good hands. I now have 20/20 vision and couldn’t be happier!”


“An amazing experience! Treated well. Words cannot express how happy I am with Dr. Vrabec and everyone else who assisted in my LASIK surgery. Easy. Fast. Highly recommend to anyone considering.”


“Best money I’ve ever spent. I’m 24 years old and this is the best thing I’ve done! I was so nervous, I get queasy and feel faint very easily. The procedure was so much easier than I expected. The staff is so nice and makes you feel like they really care and want best for you. 10/10 experience! No regrets about this!”


“I had my LASIK surgery one week ago. I can’t thank Dr. Vrabec and his team enough. My eyes feel absolutely amazing and being able to see 20/20 is seriously the most amazing thing. Being able to wake up and see clearly the whole day without any problems. Dr. Vrabec called me the night before my surgery and asked if I had any questions. The day of surgery he explained every step of the procedure to me before doing it. My only regret is not doing LASIK sooner! Thank you Valley Eye Associates!”


“Friendly and professional. They don’t pressure you and let you make your own decision. They seem to be perfectionists, checking and double checking everything before the lasers do their work. My result is 20/15 vision in each eye. I’m very satisfied.”


“From my first call, the staff was so kind, accommodating, and understanding that they frequently went over and above to ensure I had a great experience. Everyone was very supportive and ready for me to have a successful procedure. It was quicker than even I expected and Dr. Vrabec did an amazing job with his staff it was a great experience. Then my pre-op and follow-up appointments with Dr. Melchert and Denise and the nurses was a very enjoyable experience. They really made sure I got the best treatment and care that was right for my eyes. The amazement of it every single day is mind-blowing, and as I travel the world for work, I get to see it in all-natural HD. It’s all me with no assistance of contacts or glasses. You will not be disappointed and Valley really did a great job!”


“I have wanted LASIK for about 10 years, but I was terrified about the whole process. The whole experience went smoothly and easily at Valley Eye. Every staff member I interacted with was kind, patient and helpful, willing to answer all my questions no matter how many I had (there were a lot). Dr. Vrabec walked me through every single step as he did the procedure, gave thorough instructions, and a staff member stayed nearby to help me be sure I followed the directions. Dr. Vrabec even called me the day before to see if I had any questions or concerns. I would 100% recommend Valley Eye for anyone considering LASIK. My only regret is that I didn’t go sooner.”


“Dr. Vrabec and his team were so friendly, professional, and organized. They made the entire process so easy. I had an amazing outcome with my LASIK procedure, 20/15 vision in both eyes and no pain or irritation. Would highly, highly recommend!”


“Recently had both eyes done and it was quick, easy, and pain-free process. I personally liked the day before surgery that Dr. Vrabec called and asked if I was ready for tomorrow. That just added a personal touch that meant something me to about their company. Would highly recommend to others!”


“The customer service is great here! I highly recommend getting lasik done by Dr. Vrabec. The process was quick and easy and I now have 20/20 vision. It will be a life changing experience for those with vision problems!”


”What can I say about my new eyes? They are so amazing! I have been wearing glasses and contacts for as long as I can remember, and getting LASIK from Dr. Michael Vrabec at Valley Eye Associates has completely changed my life. For the first time, I can go to bed without worrying if I took out my contacts, that is an amazing feeling! This summer, I have been able to wear regular sunglasses and still see! You will have no idea the freedom I am experiencing until you have LASIK for yourself. I know, I know, LASIK can sound scary but it isn’t at all! Honestly! The staff at Valley Eye Associates are so friendly and knowledgeable they make the entire experience quick, easy, and stress free! But don’t just take my word for it, go to Valley Eye Associates and talk to them for yourself, it will be the best thing you will ever do!”

“Having LASIK was a goal for me this year. I am not sure why I didn’t do it sooner. It is the best decision I have ever made for myself. I was very nervous going into this but everyone at Valley Eye was so knowledgeable and answered questions throughout the whole process. I was in and out of the surgery in an hour and my recovery was only about a day. Dr. Vrabec was very friendly during the surgery and talked me through everything. I cannot recommend Valley Eye enough!”

“Let me tell you how amazing it was to work with Valley Eye! I have been wearing glasses/contacts since I was in kindergarten. When I opened my eyes for the first time after surgery and I could read the sign on the ceiling, a wave of emotion hit me like a ton of bricks. I could see. I could read words without contacts or glasses. I had no idea what that felt like. I burst into a Niagara Falls like sobbing (in the laser room, mind you). The nurses were so kind and amazing. The doctor was kind and amazing. Everyone I encountered at Valley Eye was great to work with. They definitely did not fall short of my expectations at all. I had a fantastic experience. I wish I would have done it sooner in life!”


“I just had iLASIK at Valley Eye and I am so happy with my experience! Everyone was so respectful and knowledgeable. They had an answer to all my questions. I was very nervous but they made me feel at ease. Thank you so much Dr. Vrabec! I’m so happy!”

“I can’t believe how fast and painless it was and the results I had right away. It feels so great to be able to see without glasses and contacts. I think it’s awesome.”
