I have been wearing glasses and/or contact lenses since I was eight years old. I don’t even remember being able to see clearly without them. It is unbelievable that I don’t have to reach for a pair of glasses in the morning when I wake up or take off my contacts before I go to sleep.
Everyone at the Caster Eye Center was very helpful. They answered all my questions and erased any doubts I had about Lasik. Dr. Caster talked me through the entire procedure which was totally painless. Dr. Caster told me he was the best and I believe him. I would recommend the Caster Eye Center to all my friends who might benefit from the Lasik procedure.
Seeing again is like being “born again.” Everything is new, bright and clear. I am starting to realize how I and most people take sight for granted.
As a secondary symptom, I no longer suffer from attacks of sneezing in the morning! My allergies have improved by about 95%. I contribute this to the fact that I no longer have irritated eyes that need constant attention.
I would also like to complement the staff…everyone was kind, courteous, helpful and enthusiastic. This was a nice experience, since one, no longer runs into such pleasant situations in today’s world; especially in my field!
I have worn glasses since the 8th grade, and always felt they were a burden. I couldn’t wear hard contacts, when they came out with soft lenses I was able to tolerate them. Being very active in water sports I have to be careful not to loose lenses in the water. Also in my work there is a lot of dust, so my lenses are always dirty. After learning about Dr. Caster from my doctor and one of his patients I felt it was something for me to try. The day of the procedure I was nervous, but it was over quickly, with minimum pain. The next day my vision was amazing. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to see without glasses or contacts.
I am amazed at how easy this procedure is, the staff and of course the Dr. were very courteous and very competent. Today one day later I can see for the very first time in thirty years without glasses or contact lenses. I will recommend this surgery to my friends. It is wonderful.
This is the most incredible experience, and the results are a miracle.
Everyone on the staff has been so nice and caring. I very much appreciate the extra care everyone took. Dr. Caster was wonderful – very calm and soothing during the procedure.
The procedure itself was not at all painful. Post-operatively I am amazed at how comfortable I feel. I can’t believe how well I can see!
No one should hesitate to have this procedure. They should go to Dr. Caster – it has been wonderful.
Certainly a remarkable procedure. The treatment was painless and my vision was 20/20 in less than 24 hours. Dr. Caster is skillful, personable and professional as is his staff. I would highly recommend the Caster Eye Center to anyone!
I have heard that it takes 21 days to break a habit. It has been almost 2 months since my Lasik procedure and I am still reaching for my glasses in the morning. It is the greatest feeling not to be dependent on glasses or contacts. No more extra glasses to carry around, no more contact supplies, no more cleaning and disinfecting every night, no more hassle putting them in the morning! I am very happy with the results and the care I received form Dr. Caster and his staff. They are the best! The saying “Seeing is Believing” has really come to life for me.
The surgery made a significant difference in my life. Now I can see the world without glasses or contacts. (and my mother is relieved it happened without any complications!)
**The touch-up surgery was the best part and I’m glad you offer it as part of the initial fee. Before the touch-up, I was somewhat satisfied, but now I am COMPLETELY satisfied.
Thanks to your friendly staff too! (especially Stuart and of course, Dr. Caster!!!)
Prior to my operation, I used contact lenses, reading glasses and regular glasses with accompanying sun glasses. I was very frustrated and inconvenienced everyday by needing all of the above – taking glasses off and on constantly depending on if I were reading or needing to see distance or needing sunglasses. After the surgery I only need reading glasses and my vision was corrected to 20/20. Considering all the time and money spent with optometrists and buying various types of glasses, this surgery makes a lot of sense. In addition, the short time actually in surgery with the quick recovery make this surgery appealing. Also the staff and Dr. Caster are extremely professional, thorough and caring!
The Lasik surgery has been the best thing to ever happen to me because it enabled me to get rid of my contacts which gave me so much trouble. This is very important to me because I play basketball and thus my vision without glasses is very important. I would definitely recommend this procedure to anyone. It is quick and painless, plus very successful. Dr. Caster has my utmost gratitude.
The operation was amazingly pain free and my recovery after 24 hours has been very easy. I would reduce the darvon to avoid grogginess.
Unbelievable – everyone should do it, if they can.
Less than a week has gone by since I had the Lasik procedure performed and I could not be more pleased. I’ll admit to being a little nervous for a few minutes before and during the procedure – but for no reason. Everything has gone so smoothly – the procedure and the nonexistent recovery period. My vision seems to be even sharper then the 20/20 it was tested at the morning after the procedure. I love the fact that I was able to work and exercise the following day without any disruption to my schedule. Family, friends and co-workers are amazed, highly interested and a little envious. The book and video are in heavy loan rotation.
The one difficult thing about the Lasik procedure has been finding an adequate way to express how fantastic the change is. I find myself continually telling people, “it’s so cool” which probably is not the optimal description coming from a 36 year old professional. There is something crisper about my vision which I am not able to articulate precisely. I’m noticing detail in the hills around my house I haven’t noticed before. My eyes are already a great deal more comfortable than they were at the end of a day wearing contacts. Freeing up cabinet space in the bathroom where the contact solutions used to be was a real bonus. Strangely, receiving the license amendment saying corrective lenses are no longer required for driving was a proud moment.
Having the Lasik procedure performed is analogous to freeing myself of a defect I’ve been struggling with all my life.
Lasik eye surgery is absolutely unbelievable! It truly is a miracle of modern medical science.
Except for the numbing eye drops, I experienced no pain at all before, during or after the procedure. Isn’t it ironic that the only part of the whole process that causes any pain at all is the anesthesia, which holds they eyelid open during surgery, and from the pressure of the microkeratome on the eye during the flap-cutting part.
I was amazed that I could see just fine as soon as I got up from the table, and the next morning my vision was even better. It has improved since then, and now I see as well without any corrective lenses as I used to with my glasses.
Even with the miraculous new devices and procedures, contemplating eye surgery could still pretty scary. But your extensive knowledge and training, your experience and consistently outstanding results, and your confidence and calming bedside manner made the whole process a snap.
I would recommend this procedure, and your office, to all my friends and family members. As a matter of fact, I already have, and as you know many of them have already had the surgery, with the same great results I had.

For 15 years, I have been in contacts and/or glasses. In the early years, I had to get insurance for my contacts because available, they helped with the calcium buildup, but didn’t fully correct my vision due to my astigmatism.
With the Lasik procedure, I can finally see without the hassle of contacts. It accommodates to my active lifestyle. I fully recommend it.
