I am a 24 year old female who opted for LASEK vision correction with Dr. Keith Carlson in June 2012. I cannot say enough nice things about Dr. Carlson and all of the staff at Claris. They made sure to answer all of my questions and are always available by phone or email if I have any questions. The scheduling process was a breeze and I felt like they opened up their schedule in order to accommodate mine. They truly put the patient first and go above and beyond in every aspect of patient care. I am so incredibly happy with my results -- 20/15 vision! If you are contemplating laser vision correction you MUST go with Dr. Carlson!

From my first appointment to my follow-up - the staff was wonderful and always willing to answer all of my questions. I had a great experience and am so happy that I choose Claris Eye Care for my lasik surgery. I just wish I would have decided to have the procedure years ago. I love not having to put in contacts or wear glasses - it is the best feeling ever to always be able to see.
