Dr. Anderson performed my LASIK surgery in June and I only have positive things to say about the experience. Dr. Anderson was not only professional but also very personable ophthalmologist. The consultation was informative where he went over the procedure and addressed all my questions/concerns.

Dr. Anderson vastly improved my quality of life! It is so wonderful to open my eyes in the morning and be able to see clearly! At my first appointment, he took the time to explain the procedure to me and answer all of my questions. Surgery itself was a snap and his follow-up care was excellent. It is obvious that Dr. Anderson truly cares about his patients and their well-being.
