“Laser vision correction can positively influence many facets of everyday life. Patients convey the joy and wonder of driving, participating in hobbies, sports and countless other activities without the need for glasses or contacts. This is the aspect of refractive surgery that I enjoy the most. I feel reassured that we are doing this in a safe and appropriate way at Griffin & Reed Eye Care.”
