LASIK Testimonials

I was so nervous to undergo LASIK, even though countless people who I had talked to said it was the best thing they’ve ever done for themselves. My nerves were soon eased as OELI was absolutely wonderful throughout the whole process. Their staff is amazing and their positivity and helpfulness makes the process enjoyable. The actual procedure was completely painless and it was over before I could even realize what was going on. I had no pain the day of and after surgery. The haze from surgery wears off after a couple of hours (of which I slept) and you can see clearly after. My vision is now 20/15, which is better than it ever was with glasses or contacts. Thank you, Dr. John Liu and staff, for changing my life! For those who are nervous, I promise once you do it you’ll wish you’d have done it sooner. I recommend OELI to anyone even thinking about LASIK! THANK YOU!

-Lindsey C.

If I could give six stars, I would! I had the absolute best experience at Omaha Eye and Laser Institute when I had LASIK performed. Dr. James Liu and the staff at OELI are fantastic. Words cannot describe how amazing it is to see clearly 100% of the time. I had my procedure done over a year ago, and still, find myself shocked that my vision is so much better than it was with corrective lenses. Some of the pros about OELI is that they are were affordable (not the least expensive, not the most expensive), they were able to fit me in just a few days after my consultation (after deciding to do it, I didn’t want to anxiously wait for a long time) AND they do their surgeries on Friday and come in on Saturday for your day-after check-up so you don’t have to take more than a day off of work – how accommodating is that?

-Kaeli S.

I waited far too long to have LASIK done. I am now seeing 20/15 (was 20/350) less than 24 hours after my surgery! The entire process was easy – I had clear expectations throughout and had very minimal discomfort. I would highly recommend OELI to all! Each person at OELI involved in my care has been exceptional.

-Amanda H.

Dr. James was so patient and caring; he made me very comfortable. It has been 4 days since my surgery and I see better than I ever can remember. Having glasses since 8 years old, it is a great feeling to be lens free.

-Ann G.

This was an amazing process! From the first phone call to set up a consultation until the follow-up the day after [surgery] was very positive. It came highly recommended to do LASIK here and now I know why and will continue to recommend my own friends and family!

-Rachel P.

My experience at Omaha Eye and Laser was better than I ever imagined it could be. I am so thankful to Dr. John Liu and the staff. I was seeing 20/15 in my right eye and 20/20 in my left eye less than 24 hours after the surgery. Thanks for this life-changing experience.

-Brock N.

I had worn glasses since the 4th grade. After having LASIK my only regret was that I hadn’t done it sooner. You can’t imagine how it feels to wake up and not have to search for my glasses to read the clock!

-Diane F.

From the first preliminary consultation to the follow-up check after my surgery, everyone at Omaha Eye & Laser was wonderful. I was the person who wanted the LASIK surgery but would “chicken out” each year. I’m so happy I made the decision to have the procedure and the staff was instrumental in my decision. Thank you to everyone!

-Laura T.

I was very comfortable during and after surgery. One day after surgery I had 20/20 vision and it has remained consistently sharp over the past year since my surgery. I recommend LASIK, both as a doctor and as a person who has had the procedure personally.

-Dr. Dan Jackson, Optometrist – A Better View – Omaha, NE

After wearing glasses for 50 years, it is nice not to have to rely on them. No restrictions on my driver’s license and it is great not to worry about glasses getting rain on them while golfing.

-Dr. Galen Schwaner – Pearle Vision – Westroads Mall

Before my LASIK, I wore glasses for 20 years. I was just tired of having glasses on all the time. I wore contacts but they weren’t always comfortable, not to mention the hassle of cleaning. Since having LASIK my vision has been great. I just wish I’d done it sooner.

-Dr. Steve Alcorn – Bloom Optical – Fremont, NE

I went in for a consultation and found that I was a candidate for LASIK! On the spot, I got financing and scheduled for surgery! They made everything easy, comfortable, and everything went just as they said it would! Very friendly people and I couldn’t be happier with my results! Thank you to everyone there!

-Randy S.

Wow, where do I start? I booked the consultation online, their website was a breeze to navigate. Once I entered my appointment request, I was contacted the same day confirming my time. Upon arrival at my consultation, the staff was just wonderful. information on price and care was explained to me clearly. I ended up booking my LASIK 3 weeks later. Throughout the entire process, I was anxious, the staff has always accurately and promptly answered all of my questions and always reassured. The day of surgery was stressful, but everything went as expected and the procedure was easier than I anticipated. I can see clearly now thanks to OEI. If you’re thinking about it, just book your consultation, it’s free. Edit: I was involved in a hit and run the day after my surgery, thanks to OEI, I was able to see their license plate number and provide it to the authorities.

A totally positive experience. All the staff was extremely professional, friendly, and helpful. I always had my questions answered and was confident with my final decision. I thought the experience was awesome-what modern technology can do! I did not experience any pain or discomfort afterward. After one month my eyes have healed nicely. Thank you so much for all you did.

I am very pleased with my whole experience at Omaha Eye & Laser Institute. Everyone was very caring and professional. I especially liked the thoroughness of the exams prior to surgery. It made me feel confident I would get the best care and results possible. And I believe I have. Thank you, Dr. James Liu, for a wonderful experience.

Everyone at the Omaha Eye & Laser Institute was so friendly and supportive. They really make you feel at ease. And the results from my surgery –WOW! I can see again. It feels like a weight’s been lifted from me. Thank you all!
