    Custom Vue at Lasik Vision Institute, Phoenix

    Had Custom Vue done at Lasik Vision Insitute.Almost -5.0 total in both eyes before Lasik. I consulted three places - LasikPlus, a private practice and LVI. LVI was cheaper by about $750 for 1 year warranty than the other two. I didnt like Lasikplus becoz they didnt bother to even follow up or answer any of my questions that I sent via email. They gave me an impression as if it was an honor/privilege to get surgery done there. To me, no thank you was easy. The private practice was awesome (Dr.Tariq Qamar) but with VSP discount LVI was cheaper. I was a bit concerned about LVI's reputation online. Decided to pop in for an exam. Ms.Brea and lady at accounting at LVI was very patient in explaining the process. Patient in taking the tests (some of them repeats since reading werent good). VSP folks get custom vue done at $1400 - $1500 here which is good price in my opinion for lifetime warranty.
    Surgery day was a bit nervous. 1.5 hours of waiting (why do they call you so early)..then to accounting.. Carecredit helps..then into the lounge outside theater.. they give you advise and postops instructions..they invite two at a time..lady there was very friendly..onto surgery room. Surgery went so fast. Dr.John was excellent even though I spent hardly 10 mts with him and his staff. Absolutely no pain. Even though it says blade cutting , it doesn't feel like it.. You hear some noise like an automatic can opener. The doc then lifts the flap up.. Then there is a noise of automatic hole puncher running continuously for 10 seconds.. You are done.onto the next eye.. 4 hours nap (lot of tears during nap)..woke up and could see so clear ..
    They said I am 20/15 on the follow up day.. But overall , LVI gets high grade for my three days experience..Will update on two weeks and monthly appt on how well LVI did..
