LASIK Testimonials

I decided to have Lasik surgery because it just got to be cumbersome always needing a pair of glasses when I wanted to read anything.

I chose to have my LASIK here at Eye physicians of Long Beach because I had many friends who’d had it done and I compared notes about who was the best doctor in town, who had a lot of experience, who had great results and Eye Physicians of Long Beach was the answer I heard the most often…

You know like most people I was a little concerned, a little nervous, a little anxious about it – I wasn’t sure exactly what would this surgery be like, would it be painful would it be difficult, so I had some trepidation but I tell you what when I came in the door from the first moment I walked in the staff were very professional, Very personal – you could tell that they wanted this to be the most pleasant experience it possibly could be and they succeeded in every way…

Do it sooner rather than later. If there is one thing that I regret it’s that I didn’t do this earlier. There’s no advantage to waiting. It’s painless. It’s easy. Do it. Get it done.
-G. Delong


I’d heard things on the radio about Lasik surgery – 995 per eye, or we can do it for 450 per eye…most of these places that advertise as 450 dollars per eye are kind of get-you-in-get-you-out and when I was thinking about my eyesight I didn’t want that, I wanted more personal care…

It was amazing how fast it happened. I saw a clock up on the wall and immediately I could read the numbers off of it…

I forgot real fast what a pain in the neck it was having the contact lenses, but when I think back – Hah! It’s so much easier. I don’t have to worry anymore.
-P. Doughwery


It was fast it was painless, it was easy and I went home feeling great, immediately seeing 20/15…

I was expecting a modicum of pain and discomfort and I was pleasantly surprised when I had neither…

The surgery has changed my life in a variety of ways. The main one is that I play a lot of sports and I can get out onto the court right now without worrying about what’s going to happen with my contact lenses, what’s going to happen with my glasses.

After the surgery my vision is 20/15 and I can’t tell you what a joy it is to see things very clearly, more clearly than I was able to see them before
-R. Lizdennis


Anytime anyone asks me about the Lasik procedure, my standard question is, What are you waiting for?

It’s remarkable just to wake up in the morning and look at the alarm clock and actually be able to see…
-J. Hubbard


I have never experienced any gratification greater than regaining anything as magical as my diminishing eyesight, through your highly professional talents and skills… I am 84 years of age and feel that my future, due to your talents, is as bright as it could possibly be and has given me a new outlook on life.
-R. Hooker


In what seemed to be just a few minutes, I was on my way home — with 20/20 vision in my corrected eye. Amazing! I am most thankful to the Dr. and all his fine staff!
-R. Moreno


I highly recommend the Crystal Lens. I had been wearing glasses for years and since the day I had surgery I feel as if I threw away crutches! It is like a miracle!
-R. Morris


I appreciate being able to see up close and also distance with the left crystal eye implant. It all works well for me and I am so glad I had it done.
-D. Reed


Everyone answered all of my questions. I felt very comfortable to have my surgery. On the day of the surgery, everyone was very nice. They explained what they were doing and what would happen next. The surgery was finished so quickly and I had no pain. I can now see to read without glasses.”
-B. Harrington


They say that life begins at “forty”, oh no, Thanks to Eye Physicians of Long beach, life has begun again for me at “eighty”. After the surgery I saw things I never knew the true color of, a sink I used every day I didn’t know that it had gold trim on it. The TV looked like it was brand new so clear and sharp with lots of color. I could go on and on. I’m so very happy and feel so blessed to have found EPLB. I tell everyone I meet about this experience so they too could do this and bring color into their lives.
-L. Babb


I could not believe how smooth the surgery went, how well Dr. Martinez explained the preparation and surgery and the difference it made in my eyesight… Having the surgery was one the best decisions I could have ever made.
-C. Salios


I was so scared when I first heard about this treatment and I am sure you feel the same way. Please understand that you are in very good hands. I have worn glasses my whole life and now have perfect vision due to the surgery, which means NO MORE GLASSES!!! This has changed my life in many ways so I assure you that you will have no regrets in the end and will be amazed with this surgery.
-C. Howell


I cannot say enough about what a positive experience getting Lasik surgery was! It’s hard to believe that I had my surgery over 4 years ago. In retrospect I wish I had done it 10 years ago! At the time I made the decision to have LASIK, I was a newly single mother and was tired of dealing with glasses and/or contacts on a daily basis as I had been since I was 5 years old. With an active lifestyle, glasses and contacts were a nuisance, but without them I could barely see someone waving to me from across the room.
The Doctors did several thorough eye examinations to determine if I was a candidate and to make sure my eyes were healthy for surgery. I was elated on hearing that I could proceed with the surgery. I knew from the doctor’s thoroughness, explanations, bedside manner, and his ability to answer all of my questions that my eyes were in great hands.
When the day of the LASIK came, I was nervous yet excited. Upon arrival at the facility, I was advised to take some medication that would relax my nerves. Within an hour, I had a few final eye exams done and Lasik was to commence. The staff was very professional and friendly; I remember that they were as excited as I was for my new vision. The Lasik procedure itself didn’t last longer than 10 minutes. It was an unusual experience but completely pain free and within moments of the Lasik being completed I could read a clock across the room for the first time in my life.
Four years post-operative and I still maintain 20/20 vision! It’s been such a blessing in my life. I can live an active lifestyle with my daughter without the extra worries of contacts and/or glasses. Whenever asked, I share my experience and great decision I made to have LASIK performed by the doctors at EPLB.
-K. Bryson


To be honest, initially I was apprehensive about having LASIK surgery because I was concerned about the side effects/risks. I decided to have my surgery here with Dr. Martinez at his Eye Physicians of Long Beach office because I felt very comfortable with Dr. Martinez and his staff. Aside from this, some of my family members recommended him.
My pre-op workup was thorough and I was explained the whole procedure. They explained exactly what would be going on from the time I arrived at the office, the day of the surgery, all the way to the end of the surgery. I watched a very informative video describing the LASIK procedure and what it entails. Dr. Martinez and his assistant Lisa both thoroughly explained and answered questions.
On the day of my surgery, I was attended to quickly. One of the staff members explained my pre-op instructions and answered any questions I had. Dr. Martinez took time to talk to me before he was to do the procedure and to ask how I was feeling.
I would definitely recommend LASIK to anyone who was considering it. The procedure went very well. I did not experience any pain during the surgery. I felt relaxed because Dr. Martinez and his assistant Lisa were explaining what was happening every step of the way.
Lasik has changed my life tremendously. I no longer have to worry about waking up every morning not be able to see or make out faces and things.
-M. A. Rios


I was extremely nervous about having Lasik but everyone at Eye Physicians of Long Beach made me feel extremely comfortable. I don’t think I would have been so calm during the procedure if the doctor hadn’t explained exactly how it was going to work. Special thanks to Sunny who was so nurturing from the beginning. I would do Lasik again in a heartbeat. It is amazing to wake up in the morning and see without wearing contacts or glasses.
-J. Nikoletich


On Aug. 9, 2011 I had eye surgery with one eye getting the LASIK and the other eye getting the PRK. I would have to say the whole staff and the Dr. made the experience super comfortable and easy. They took the time to get to know you and answered all the questions that I had. During the actual procedure, the Dr. walked me through each step he was doing and also helped comfort me so I wouldn’t get scared. After the surgery the Dr. was very communicative and explained everything that would happen. By the next day I already noticed such a huge difference. I would have to say the whole staff and Dr’s are such a wonderful team and I am glad that I went to Eye Physicians of Long Beach.
-J. Cesena


I don’t remember a time when I could see clearly without glasses or contacts. I started wearing glasses at the age of 10 and by the age of 29 my vision was so poor I couldn’t see to the end of my arm.

I decided to have the Lasik procedure after several friends and family members achieved amazing results. I originally came to EPLB due to seeing advertisements ad reading positive reviews. I decided to have them perform the procedure after meeting the wonderful staff at my consultation.

My results after Lasik have been amazing and life changing. You don’t realize how poor vision effects your life until you have perfect vision. As an avid volleyball player this has been a game changer and I couldn’t be happier.
-H. Brown


From the moment I walked in the staff was friendly and warm. They made the entire process simple and patient friendly. They understand that medical procedures can be stressful and do their best to make the process smooth.

I was confident the entire time that my eyes were in good hands. I am very glad that I came here for this life changing experience, and I thank everyone involved for putting their experience to good use.

All my life I’ve been waiting to do the LASIK procedure. But every time I ask my optometrist he said “It’s not a good idea for now”. Finally this year my optometrist says “why not, I think you are a good candidate”. So finally while I was on the gurney ready to be prepped, I was thinking “I can’t do this. I need to get up.” I said to myself “No, I can do this”. So the next day I thought hey it wasn’t bad at all. Now I can go to the beach, swim in the pool and do a lot of things that I haven’t done in a while since my bad vision. Overall, I’m so happy that I did LASIK surgery. I feel like a brand new person again. Thank you EPLB and Staff. You are all awesome!

-S. Naslund


I had my initial procedure on 03/18/2011, which greatly improved my vision. The Dr. and his staff continued to evaluate me after the initial procedure and determined that I could have better vision with an enhancement procedure. My enhancement procedure went just as smoothly as the initial procedure. It has only been one day since my enhancement and I already notice the improvement. I am truly grateful for EPLB and the staff’s determination to give me the best vision possible.

Dry Eye Testimonials

I highly recommend Dr. M. Pham at Eye Physicians of Long Beach for many reasons. Not too long ago, the eye doctor I’d been regularly seeing for dry eyes was not available, so I accepted an appointment with Dr. Pham to fit my schedule that week. This turned out to be my lucky day because she’s a dry-eye specialist. I already knew I had cataracts and thought this was, in part, my problem. Dr. Pham examined me and in short order explained we needed to get my eyes ‘back into shape’ by correcting the dry eye problem, so she started a regimen to fix that first.

After several months of treatment, my eyes felt normal again. However, my vision was still blurry. Dr. Pham felt the dry eye problem had been resolved, so we could then move onto the cataract surgery. I had my right (dominant) eye cataract removed in April of 2019. To me, this was a scary procedure, but Dr. Pham explained the surgery thoroughly, and my eyes were measured and checked by her several times prior to the surgery date which gave me a lot of peace of mind. I decided to have the Multi-Focal Lens procedure. Dr. Pham performed the surgery at the Memorial Outpatient Surgery Center at the new LBX center. The moment I walked through the door my nervousness left me. The nurses, the anesthesiologist and Dr. Pham kept my family and me fully informed on what was to happen through every phase of the procedure.

I then had my left eye done in July of 2019. I was much more relaxed this time due to my previous experience with Dr. Pham. It takes about one month for the healing and vision to improve. I can now see clearly, read without glasses and read street signs ahead of being just under them again!

Again, I would highly recommend Eye Physicians of LB and most specifically, Dr. Pham. It was a pleasure being treated by her during the last year. Her bedside manner, knowledge, skills and education level made me feel wonderful. Thanks to her, my eyes are back to normal.

Thank you Dr. Pham for diagnosing, treating and helping me understand how to control my dry eye condition. My eyes were constantly red, irritated & difficult to open after sleeping. Also, in the evening I couldn’t keep my eyes open which made reading impossible. Since you explained that dry eye is a chronic condition, I take Omega 3 capsules & use liquid tears & HypoChlor every day as you recommended. Thanks to you my eyes feel like normal!

-S. Buch


I am grateful that Dr. Pham diagnosed BRVO during the course of my dry eye treatment. She encouraged me to follow up with the cardiologist and retina specialist to manage the situation and prevent further damage.

I believe Dr. Pham’s professional expertise and compassionate care helped me to avoid a potential stroke or heart attack. I’m confident that she truly cares about my health, not only the eyes, but the whole person.

Dr. Pham takes the time to help me understand my condition, and is willing to answer questions I may have. This allows me to manage the situation on a daily basis, and also helps me to enjoy quality of life. I’m grateful for Dr. Pham’s commitment to providing excellent care for her patients.

For many years, I hated going to my annual eye exam.  Every year I heard that I had dry eyes.  Not sure what I was able to do to fix that but it was shared annually.  I can tell you that dry eyes were not fun.  It felt as if I had sand in my eyes every day.  It also negatively impaired my vision.

Due to an unfortunate virus in one of my eyes did I meet the amazing Dr. Pham.  Not only did she help eliminate my virus but she investigated my dry eyes further than my previous eye doctor.  She took pictures of the back of my eyes that looked like Mars and pictures of the oil producing glands in my eyelids.  When seeing those pictures, I understood why my eyes were dry.  The oils in my eyes were not flowing but clogged and tears were almost non-existent.

Dr. Pham talked to me about Lipiflow.  I was hesitant due to the fact that is not covered by my insurance.  I had to weigh the cost of the procedure against the benefits of having a normal flow of tears and oils into my eyes and eliminate the sand effect.

I weighed in on the side of the procedure.  The outcome has been amazing.  I now have normal tear and oil flow into my eyes.  The sandy feeling is now gone.  My ducts are open and producing normally.  My eye-lids are back to normal and I now have healthy eyelashes.

I have to thank a supreme being for landing me in Dr. Pham’s office.  Thanks to her, my eyes are happy and healthy.

You are my hero Dr. Pham! Thanks again!

Finally….help for my 30 year quest of Dry Eye Syndrome. What a wonderful stroke of luck for me, that I was seen by Dr. Mai Pham of Eye Physicians Of Long Beach, last year.

She took such interest in my long history of dry eye complaints that several Doctors just never offered real solutions to conquer. With her kind, thorough exam and options of treatment, I have finally gotten relief for the dry, hot, irritating pain of “Dry Eye Syndrome”. The suggestions she offered and follow from Dr. Pham have helped so much.

So very grateful to her and I do recommend anyone not getting relief ….. make an appointment and get the professional help and gentle care this Doctor gives.

My vision began to deteriorate and I got panicked. I was a basket case until Dr. Pham crossed my path. She saved me. She is my hero. I needed cataract surgery in both eyes. I was scared out of my mind, but Dr. Pham has a way like no one else. She is the BEST! Now I see perfectly and no more glasses for seeing far away. Not bad for being 72 years old.

Gary Soerensen


I first met Dr. Pham under an emergency situation. I had been out shopping and suddenly lost vision in one eye. This was late in the afternoon on a Friday of a holiday weekend. When my daughter called Eye Physicians of Long Beach she spoke with Dr. Pham. Dr. Pham said for me to immediately come in and she would be waiting for me. Dr. Pham was caring, compassionate and skilled in not only identifying the cause of the problem, but in helping me to relax. She took the time to speak to a retina specialist and coordinate next steps. Her kindness and follow-up really meant a lot to me. Since that time she has performed two successful cataract surgeries for me and continues to provide me with excellent care. If you are looking for the best ophthalmologist, come to Dr. Pham.

Multifocal Lenses Testimonials

Dear Dr. Pham, please accept this note of appreciation for restoring my visual clarity! The results to date have been self-evident. I have not had this clarity since I started using prescribed glasses in my teens. I felt safe knowing that you were giving me the best information and advice on eye care. Your expertise compelled me to get laser surgery and the multifocal lenses. I am delighted with the results. I especially liked the excellent Memorial Outpatient Surgery facility you used to perform the surgery and your skillful cadre of support staff. I will gladly continue to refer my colleagues to you as an eye care provider with an excellent recommendation. Thank you!
