High Definition Laser Cataract Surgery™ Testimonials

“I have been wearing glasses since kindergarten. At 45 years of age, 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. Wearing glasses with bifocals was not the feasible alternative in my opinion due to weather. I also tried wearing several types of different contacts which did not work. 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. I would not change anything and would highly suggest it to any of my friends or family. Highly recommended, it was a life-changing experience. The surgery itself was painless. The staff was very comforting. The recovery was very quick. I was very well-educated throughout the whole process. Paperwork was sent home for patients to read and make them aware of the process and any complications that could happen. I recommend Dr. Vrabec and his staff to everyone I talk to.”

Kris, HDLCS™ Patient

“I chose Valley Eye Associates and Dr. Vrabec because of the technology and new equipment that he has and his skills and experience helping people out all over the world. I felt as though I had to get the best. And I was right and couldn’t be happier. Just to be able to take in all that detail outdoors means so much to me. It’s like a whole new world for me. I’ve been bragging this up to everybody and it’s just amazing. I would recommend Dr. Vrabec and his associates and staff to anybody and I definitely will from now on. It’s been a very good experience. I’m 62-years-old and I can tell this is the best eyesight I’ve ever had. The birds better watch out.  I’m a bird hunter and I’m not missing them. And those big bucks hiding in the brush, I’m going to be able to see them standing there.”

Tom, HDLCS™ PatientOshkosh, WI

Sue, HDLCS™ PatientNeenah, WI

“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.”

Zonnie, HDLCS™ PatientNeshkoro, WI

“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.”

Robert, HDLCS™ PatientWinnecone, WI

iLASIK Testimonials

”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!”

Tanner Schram of KISS FM, iLASIK Patient

“I want to thank you and the team at Valley Eye for the wonderful experience. I had been in glasses/contacts for 20 years and although I never had an issue wearing contacts, the thought of not having to deal with them every day was pretty appealing. I recently started competing in triathlons and swimming with contacts was a challenge, especially on race day. Not having to worry about packing an extra pair of contacts or losing them during the swim is going to make race season this year so much more enjoyable! I have to admit, I was pretty nervous about this entire process but everyone at Valley Eye really made me feel comfortable and answered all of my questions. Everything from the initial consultation through my post-op appointment went so smooth and was effortless. I would definitely recommend Valley Eye to anyone who is considering LASIK!”

iLASIK Patient

“With my active lifestyle, I was having trouble wearing my contacts all day without dryness or blurry vision. With my upcoming wedding, I was concerned about wearing my contacts all day and staying comfortable. I am so excited to run, bike, do duathlons and triathlons without glasses and contacts. I’m also very excited to not have to worry about glasses and contacts on my wedding day. My experience at Valley Eye was great! Everyone was so helpful, nice, and had a great sense of humor. Any question that I had was answered and I felt well informed throughout the experience.”

iLASIK Patient

“From day one, the LASIK process has been so easy and seamless. I’ve never had a procedure explained to me so well and so thoroughly! I have worn glasses since I was nine years old, so to now have 20/15 vision is amazing! Dr. Vrabec even called me personally the night before the procedure, which was extremely comforting. From beginning to end, I couldn’t be happier with the service and expertise of this team. I would recommend LASIK from Valley Eye Associates to anyone!”

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!”

Nicole, iLASIK Patient

“As a physician assistant who works in surgery: highly recommend Valley Eye – from my free consultation to follow up appointments after LASIK – everything has been smooth, informative and always met with a friendly staff. Recently had LASIK and it’s been wonderful! Wish I would have done this 10 years ago! Dr. Vrabec is the most qualified physician in the area and I would not go to anyone else for my eyes.”

Robert, iLASIK PatientNeenah, WI

“I wish I’d have done this years ago! How exciting to see everything without glasses or contacts — I haven’t been able to do that for 24 years! Thank you so much!”

Mary, iLASIK PatientWasau, WI

“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!”
