Testimonials From Actual Travers Lasik Patients

Terri W.

I am a 45 year old female, I was nearsighted with astigmatism. I suffer from dry eyes and was unable to manage contact lenses. I went for 2 consults prior to choosing Travers Lasik for lasik surgery. The first place I went for a consult spent barely any time with me and when I met with that ophthalmologist and had questions, he dismissed my questions as insignificant. He said we could make choices on the fly the day of surgery (are you kidding me?). After that not so good experience, I went to Travers for a second consult and opinion. They were extremely thorough, checked the complete health of my eyes and even found something they were not 100% happy with at first and they checked and re-checked it just to be sure it wasn’t something significant. They explained everything to me in full detail, answered my battery of questions with confident, thorough answers and were very flexible in scheduling, without pressure. The staff was friendly and encouraging and helped me with my anxiety. The surgery was quick and Dr. Travers talked me through it with a calm, confident demeanor. The post op appointments were very thorough and efficient and they addressed my personal concerns thoroughly and encouraged me to always consider them a resource if my issues did not resolve as we all anticipate. I could not be more pleased with my experience with Travers Lasik. I highly recommend.

I had my surgery with Travers Lasik in January. My flex plan had just renewed so I knew exactly what I wanted to do with the money. I wore contacts and glasses for 15 years before I had finally had enough. I was tired of not being able to see when I woke up. If I lost a contact lens while on vacation (happened twice) and forgot an extra set then I had to wear my glasses the whole time. That’s not fun at the beach! Deciding to have LASIK was the easiest decision I have ever made. Now I just needed to decide on a surgeon. I went for 2 other consults with other doctors. Their consult was only minutes. I spent almost 2 hours at Travers Lasik so I felt WAY more confident in their diagnosis and treatment plan. It didn’t hurt that their price was about $200-$400 less than what I had been quoted elsewhere.
The day of treatment was exciting! I was nervous but their staff and doctors are so much fun! I was brought right back to repeat some testing and then saw a doctor. I waited a few minutes and then they brought me back to get me ready. I watched TV in a pretty private little waiting room with my girlfriend until it was my turn. Then they knocked and it was time to go!
I met Dr. Travers and she was so friendly. She was just what I had expected. Very thorough in her exam and conversational. We had light conversation during the procedure. I didn’t feel a thing except some pressure for a few seconds. It was over before I knew it! She finished up her exam, they put some shields on me and she even took a picture with me when I was done!
I went home and slept for a few hours. I woke up feeling great and seeing like I was wearing contacts! It was amazing! We spent a few minutes testing my new vision…how many fingers? What’s this say?….read this…
You know…everything that you could have wanted to read and see before but couldn’t. I could see everything!
I’m a couple of weeks out now and there is no looking back! I love it. Thanks Dr. Travers and her staff! You have truly changed my life!

If you want Lasik surgery this is the place. Unlike some of the other offices I checked out where you would not know who was doing your surgery because they use doctors from everywhere, you know Dr. Travers was your surgeon. A very knowledgeable staff, from greeting you at the front desk, and every step in between.
My surgery went well and the best part, and I donโ€™t need glasses! Thank you Dr Travers and staff!

Unbelievable experience! EVERYONE is so nice, friendly, and attentive. Travers Lasik is an example of what EVERY business, no matter the field, should strive to achieve. I wish I could give this team a million stars. So thankful that Dr. Travers was recommended to me and that I took the advice. I would highly recommend both the doctor and the staff to anyone and everyone considering lasik. Top notch without question.

I went in for an initial consult today and expected to visit 2 other doctors’ offices. That is now unnecessary.
The receptionist greeted me warmly, even telling me that her father’s name was also Van (there’s not many of us so it’s nice to know I’m not the only one who was named after a vehicle … and yes, the playground during elementary school was a battleground.)
Megan brought me back to begin the ocular diagnosis and couldn’t have possibly been nicer. Dr. Aimee Haswell then performed several more tests and brightened up my day even more, answering every question I had while telling me how much she loved her dog …. another personal, shared bonding experience.
Then I met Amy who helped me with scheduling and payment options. She was a delight and pleasure to be around as well, joking that I’d be a pirate soon because I only need my right eye corrected…. we both said “Arrrrgh” at the exact same time and then connected on a well-timed high five.
Dr. Travers wasn’t in the office when I was there. However, she called me on her personal cell phone (before I drove the 4.4 miles to my home) to introduce herself and answer any questions I had …. she was professional, personable, and sincerely caring while she talked with me for 15 minutes … even though I knew she likely had a myriad of other tasks that needed her attention. She, like every other staff member and opthalmologist I met, truly made their utmost effort to inform me thoroughly while engaging me personally and putting my fears to rest.

I don’t ever remember enjoying a doctor’s visit of any kind, much less one preceding a surgery. I felt like a VIP who continually ran into lifelong friends along the way.
The staff is the most effective, efficient, personable, enjoyable and funny I’ve ever had the pleasure of dealing with. I say this even though the tests required my eyes to be dilated, which I truly despise.

In sum, I was probably unreasonably nervous about the surgery but the staff and Dr. Travers has completely put my mind at ease by connecting with me on a personal level and answering every question I had and some that I didn’t even think of. I couldn’t have possibly asked for a better experience than the one I had today.

If you’re thinking about correcting your vision, look no further than Dr. LT.

My girlfriend made me go to Travers Lasik. ๐Ÿ˜€ To be honest, I wish this space to write was longer. It just feels great not to have to depend on something to help me see. Honestly, I feel more confident in my personal looks. I cannot wait to get back on the basketball court and not worry about my contacts being an issue. Thanks to all the staff.

Michael Nix

I got a recommendation from a co-worker and found Travers through my own research. My distance vision is excellent so far. I now enjoy freedom from switching glasses outdoor and the ability to wear non-prescription safety eyewear.

Rebecca McCollum

The number of surgeries performed, friendliness of the staff and the affordability is what drew me to Travers Lasik. They helped my dependency on contacts + glasses. Could see nothing with them. The vision is very clear and sharp now as well. I will now be able to play sports and especially be able to swim and see! I don’t have to worry about eye allergies with contacts irritating my eyes.

Todd Hales

I had researched a lot of options and asked around. I was very pleased with what I read and heard from former patients. The staff made me feel at care prior to my procedure. Dr. Travers walked me through everything she was doing. A day later, I feel better and am seeing very clearly. So far, so good. My vision today is really great! I look forward to may years of wonderful vision!

Angelica R. Rangel

Travers was the first choice the online personnel recommended, so I took the offer. Everything was great, everyone is really friendly and professional. Being able to see without having to reach for my glasses is great. I enjoy the outside view without worrying about my contacts feeling weird or if I forget to get my glasses.

Eldene Chugani

I chose Travers Lasik for several reasons: 1) I knew first hand people who had their Lasik done by Dr. Travers. 2) Their testimonials were nothing but great. 3) The experience of Dr. Travers was impressive. Travers Lasik helped me get my sight back. I feel so much more confident about myself. I feel like a new person and got my independence back. Best of all, my 17 month old can no longer grave and throw my glasses when I hold him. Finally, I got through the process of getting the procedure done because everyone at Travers Lasik is so nice and have great bedside manners. I was so afraid before and during the procedure, but the staff and Dr. Travers took the time to calm me down and to reassure me. I loved the experience!

I found Travers Laski through research and word of mouth. I can see! I don’t need any more contacts or glasses – freedom!

Robert McNamara

I chose Travers Lasik because they have an ‘A’ rating by the BBB and I read nothing but good reviews about them. Everyone there was very helpful, especially the staff. They answered all my questions and after the surgery, I could see. I can now see better than 20/20 with no glasses.
Robert McNamara

Marvin Patterson-Bey

I found them on the internet. When I came in I felt the confidence of the staff. I can see better than I ever have in my life. I don’t have to wear more than 1 pair of glasses at work for safety. I’m liking wearing different economically preferred shades. Waking up and not having to look for glasses. Looking in the mirror, seeing clearly how I look without glasses.

Monte G. Tippette

Their price, the wed ad and the radio ad were all decision factors for picking Travers as my eye surgeon. My vision is vastly improved- I have worn contacts and glasses for the past ten 10 years. Only 12 hours after surgery I could see things very clearly that I hadn’t seen without glasses for many years. ๐Ÿ™‚

Richard Brown

I picked Travers for the technology, the reputation, and the cost. Now I have 20-15 distance vision without the aggravation of contacts/glasses. I love my hassle free vision!

Lori Travers had years of experience and was recommended by my optometrist. I was seeing 20/15 vision the day after the surgery – better than with my contacts. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. It’s great not having to deal with glasses or contacts. What a freedom!
LF

Craig Shaftner

I chose Travers because of the recommendation of a friend and through the radio. They helped me a lot with everything – no more contacts or glasses. I will be enjoying more water sports.

My friend Tim recommended Travers Lasik to me. They helped with my monovision and now I have great distance vision!

Andrew Harrod

Every review I read online was excellent, plus 2 coworkers had good experiences at Travers. I have been having migraines for several years from every pair of contacts & glasses I tried. Now I am free from them. Before surgery I couldn’t even see the top letter on the eye chart (20/400), my prescription was -5.25. Now, less than 18 hours after surgery I have already close to 20/20 vision.

I was referred by my friend Joni. I got LASIK & had great service through the entire process. Very friendly staff with a family feel. I love not wearing glasses all day! There is not much better than that.

Jamie Howard

I was tired of contacts and a friend referred me to Dr. Travers. The procedure was completely painless and I can see the alarm clock for the first time in 25 years!!! I have zero complaints! I see BETTER than 20/20. No more glasses or expensive contact prescriptions. I feel so free. I’m looking forward to the pool this summer!

Everything is better than perfect. It is as if I have a brand new life. I can not thank Travers Lasik enough.

John Jefferson

Travers Lasik is highly recommended for a reason. I am more comfortable working without glasses and I am enjoying non prescription sunglasses.
John Jefferson

James Hastings

Multiple friends referred me to Travers Lasik. The prices and staff are great. They walked me through the procedure step by step. After my procedure I can see things that I couldn’t even see with glasses or contacts. I love being able to wake up and not having to hunt for my glasses. I can read road signs from a distance. I can wake up in the middle of the night and see the alarm clock without squinting. My results are amazing.

Bill B.

Dr. Travers and All,
I’m not one who usually comments on the experiences I’ve had with a business, and when I do it usually tends to be negative. This time, however, I wanted to express my appreciation to everyone for the very positive experience I had.
Seldom, no rarely, have the people I encountered been, without exception, so professional, competent, courteous, and caring. Maybe as remarkable and as important to me is that everyone was just outright friendly.
And I am really pleased to have such good results and to be able to put away my glasses. Well, except to read the fine print.
Thank you all! And may God bless you.
Bill B.

Carrie L.

Thank you does not seem like a big enough word to express my gratitude for my perfect eyesight! I still am amazed each day when I wake up that I can see so clearly. My greatest appreciation to you Dr. Travers, and to your staff for all you have done.
Thank you,
Carrie L.

Catherine R.

On January 24, 2004 my life changed drastically. The change was a direct result of the surgery you performed on my eyes. For many years I have struggled with poor vision. I spent many days frustrated and anxious because as a full time Specialist for Head Start and a part time student I had extreme difficult seeing.
Days after surgery I was able for the first time in eleven years to read the thermostat in my own home. Days later I marveled at my ability to see the numbers on the jerseys of my favorite basketball team players on television. I was amazed! Each day brings new things to enjoy because I now can see!
I have recommended you to my business associates, classmates, and friends. I tell them what a wonderful new beginning my improved sight has done. Words cannot express my appreciation for the gift of sight Lasik Plus has given me.
You and your wonderful staff made the experience pleasant and gave me a real feeling of comfort and security. To all of you I am extremely grateful. I only wish I could shout from mountain tops about my joy.
From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU.
Catherine R.

Dear Travers and staff,
Thank you so much for getting me to see. It’s so nice to be able to lay in bed and watch TV not worry about falling asleep. I look forward to summer now. Thank you so much.

Dear Dr. Travers,
Thank you so much for giving me 20/20 (and better) vision!
If they gave out stars for good deeds, you’d own a galaxy!
Both the results and the procedure itself greatly surpassed all my expectations.
I am truly glad that I got to meet you.
Thanks again
Sincerely,
