Just got my lasik done with Dr. Moreira on 8/18/16; it was a wonderful, fast and painless procedure.<br><br>Before lasik:<br>I got my consultation and they ran some tests on my eyes to see if I would be a good candidate for lasik. The entire consultation was around 30 minutes. It was very attentive, and I was never kept waiting. After Dr. Moreira had told me I was a good fit, Kathy helped me booked my appointment, and follow up. She sent me eye drops to pick up at my local pharmacy the day before surgery, and additional drops to purchase. She went over the price, and told me the payment would be received on the day of the procedure. She was extremely helpful!<br><br>Day of lasik:<br>Before getting lasik they reexamined my eyes one last time. Afterwards, Kathy sat down with me gave me a Xanax, and two Advil. She went over my post op instructions and handed me a bag of goodies! Kathy then guided me into the relaxation room where I waited to begin. A doctor came into the room and gave me some numbing drops and had me lay on the bed. The procedure was very quick and I was under the laser for less than 10 minutes. I felt some pressure but nothing was painful. After it was done Dr. Moreira helped me get up, she looked at my eyes, gave me sunglasses, and I was on my way! I did feel some burning sensation afterwards but once I got home it went away. I went home took the Xanax they prescribed to me and went straight to bed. I woke up with better vision without glasses or contacts! I took the eye drops as told and the artificial tears when my eyes are a little dry. <br><br>Follow up appointment:<br>The day after I woke up with great vision and drove myself to see Dr. Moreira. They reexamined my eyes again and told me I looked good. I have another appointment in two weeks! Overall, my experience was great. I definitely recommend getting lasik here. Everyone is great and makes you feel very comfortable. They took my nerves away! It is extremely worth it. Thank you Dr. Moreira and Kathy for such a great experience!
I received LASIK from Dr. Moreira and it was everything I had hoped for and more. The process was a breeze and I am now 20/10 in both eyes.
I received LASEK from Dr. Moreira in both eyes and am now 20/10 which is just crazy, she is an amazing surgeon. This procedure was a breeze for me, I was in and out in an hour and after a nap for a few hours I was myself and back at work the next day.
Dr. Nielsen is one of the BEST Optometrists I've ever been to. Dr. Nielsen is the one who discovered, through my eyes, that I had Multiple Sclerosis when NO other doctor could! Since then he is the only one I will see and he is amazing and really cares about his patients. I had Lasik surgery that he performed about 5 years ago and it was awesome! I've had amazing vision since and he is the only one I would've trusted to perform that type of surgery. <br><br>If you want an amazing Optometrist...Dr. Nielsen and his associates are the people to see!
