What Our Patients Are Saying About Us

"Lasik is one of the best things I've ever done. I've got perfect vision and couldn't be happier. I wish I'd seen Dr. Dahl sooner, I love it!" - Shasta B., Surgery Technician

"My vision in my left eye was so poor I could barely read the big 'E' on the eye chart. After wearing contacts for over 35 years, I decided to have LASIK surgery. Surgery day was a breeze. The nurses and Dr. Dahl kept me calm and comfortable. I am pleased to say I can now read the smallest letters on the eye chart!" - Denise H. Flight Attendant
