LOOK NO FURTHER, THIS IS YOUR PLACE
It’s really all about trust… To be absolutely clear, I did not know anyone who worked at LA Sight prior to my consultations, I didn’t have any friends who had been to LA Sight…I was a first timer and completely petrified during my search for the right office to perform my surgery. With so many different price points, laser types, etc. it can be a bit overwhelming.
After researching and speaking with multiple offices around town, my gut strongly led me back to LA Sight/Dr. Wallace and his amazing staff (Dr. Tabanfar, Dr. Graham, Karen, Alice, Sepi, Keith and Dave (I know all of their names because that’s the type of place LA Sight is and that’s why I landed there. I didn’t want to just be a number somewhere). I read all of the positive reviews on Yelp and thought “this cannot be real….are they paying these people to give good reviews” haha. I’m being serious…After meeting everyone during the consultation, seeing the spotless, high-tech office environment and calculating an overall ‘vibe’ of the place, I was sure I’d found my surgeon (keep in mind I had multiple friends referring me to other surgeons they’d had Lasik with but I just didn’t vibe with them and felt they were dismissive of my concerns, unlike Dr. W and his staff. LA Sight also has the best lasers in the business.
During my consultation, I never felt pressured to proceed…and for that I was grateful. Karen made me feel very comfortable and I loved her calming voice so much that I requested her presence during my surgery. She was sweet enough to oblige and talked me through the steps, as did Dr. W..so, Karen, thank you from the bottom of my heart 🙂 Between you, a valium and an awesome surgeon, the experience was great!
During the surgery, Dr. W, Karen and Dave were on their A-game. Dr. W insured me that everything was going smoothly while the lasers were doing their thing. Someone else mentioned that Dr. W has a father-like quality and I must say, I totally agree. I will say, educating myself on the procedural steps before the surgery helped me a lot because I knew what was going on and what to expect next. After the surgery I went home, went to bed, woke up and could see 🙂 It was amazing!!!!!
I wanted to wait a month post-op before writing this review so I could include post-op experience.
Post-op: The morning following the surgery, I visited the office and they made sure the flap was sealed okay. It was. My right eye developed a slight pressure-like pain about a week after the surgery and I called the office. Dr. Tabanfar hopped on the phone (what other offices in town are that quick and care so much??) She advised me to stop taking the anti-inflammatory drops and update her in three days. Three days later, the pain was gone. She genuinely cared, so thank you Dr. T!
One month out now and my eyes feel amazing!! I’m officially 20/20 🙂 Probably better with both eyes being used. It’s been a life-changer! I will be sending all of my friends and family members to LA Sight, without a doubt.
If you’re reading this, you’re probably searching for a surgeon…look no further..this is your place 🙂
