What Our Patients Say

Dr. Salz performed LASIK on both of my eyes a week apart, and I was able to return to my office and treat my patients 48 hours after my first eye surgery. The procedure was performed in a relax environment and his explanations of every step of the procedure made me very comfortable during the surgery.I certainly would recommend vision correction to any qualified patient and further more will urge you to see Dr. Salz in your search to find an expert to perform your eye surgery.

Carmen, D.D.S

On the second day after the procedure, I woke up and didn't have to look for my glasses because when I opened my eyes I could see! For the first time in 10 years I could look up numbers in my address book and see the numbers clearly without glasses. Today I got to see my grandchildren's faces without having to squint through bifocals. Thanks to Dr. Salz I saw the light! I am looking forward to a more functional life.


Wow, Dr. Salz is absolutely the best. He is very professional and personally calls to check up on his patients. He was highly recommended to me because I wanted a second opinion. This is a doctor that is truly concerned for you and your eye health. Not out to farm your wallet or insurance. The first doctor told me I had cataracts. (I DID NOT). I am so very blessed to have been introduced to such greatness. I have been without glasses since October. Thank you Dr. Salz.
