Testimonials


I am so thankful to Dr. Kloess and the wonderful job he did in restoring my vision. After LASIK I see perfectly well and I know I received the best care possible. I recommend he and his staff to anyone considering LASIK to get rid of their contacts.
-Fred Hunter, Fox 6
I had LASIK Friday and I can see great! I've had such a wonderful experience. Friday afternoon my two-year-old even noticed that I was no longer wearing glasses. He put his hand up to my eyes and said "Mommy, pretty eyes". Well worth it!!
