Kristin Brown – Management Consultant
It's been 11 years since I was able to wake up and read my alarm clock. . . and today, it happened!!! This is truly amazing!! This entire experience, from my initial consultation to the actual procedure, has been outstanding- far exceeding my expectations. I would like to thank Dr. Caster and his wonderful staff.
Erin Benfield – Mom
I was definitely a little nervous about this procedure, but I had confidence in Dr. Caster and his staff. At each step in the process, the staff explained what was going on and why. I really felt that each technician and doctor had complete knowledge of the procedure and its intriacies (spelling?). Anyways, I recommended this to anyone who is eligible it's a life change!!!
Gerald A. Weisede – Retired
I'm very pleased with the results, and they will get even better. The whole staff has been the best. I feel very lucky to have come here for the procedure. Thank everyone.
Dori Davis –
Very positive experience, Dr. Caster & the staff- awesome!!!
My only question " Why didn't I do this years ago?"
Kirsty Tan – Consulting manager
Being able to see the time on a clock first thing in the morning was an amazing feeling. I told my husband "It's 7:30am I could see the clock. That was the next day after my Lasik surgery at Caster Eye Center. My husband, who was a critic seemed happy!! I now have 20/20 vision a day after the surgery, a dramatic improvement from my previous -9.50 vision.
Sergio Ibarra – Student (UCLA)
What most impressed me about the Caster Eye Center was the direct honesty, patience and professionalism. I know exactly what to expect during the surgery, and the counselors as well as those working with me had light-hearted, comforting sensitivity towards my anxiousness. Interacting with the Dr. Caster himself and those who work for him, I knew I was going to get the best result that was possible for my eyes. I am glad I came here and give a big thanks to everyone who worked w/me at the Caster Eye Center.
Carolyn Goldsberry – Director, Humor Resources
My experience with Dr. Caster & his entire staff was first class. Although I considered having the procedure close to home, I'm very glad I did not. Everyone was so helpful, considerate & though I felt confident that I was putting the "fate of my eyesight" in very capable hands. I applaud Dr. Caster for maintaining the highest standards of customer service with each of his staff. I felt like I met almost everyone & they were all terrific. Although I realize my eyes won't stanalyze for a few months, I would recommend the Caster Eye Center to everyone.
Erik Murrillo – Computer Technician
Having worn glasses since 1986, I really had no idea what to expect from this procedure. Now, after having gone though it, all my fears of Lasik were put to rest. Anyone considering this procedure should come to Dr. Caster fast. He is true. Professional and his staff are top notch. To be honest, words cannot describe what difference Lasik has done for me. Now I can be more acting than before and do things I always dreamt of doing. But could not do so because of my glasses.
Fernando Trujillo – Production assistant
I really enjoyed my experience with all the staff and am so pleased with the results of the surgery. Everyone was really professional and made me feel at ease with the whole procedure. It's wonderful!
Andrew Arrow – Technology
"Man destroys pair of eye glasses with garbage disposal!" Okay, so I'm exaggerating just a little to make a point. (I actually kept my old frames and turned them into sunglasses.) But there was certainly no love loss between me and my old prescription glasses. I had been prisoner to glasses like these for practically all my life. The day after my Lasik surgery the prison sentence finally ended. I wore glasses from 1987 to 1997, contacts (when I could get them to stay in my eyes) from 1997 to 1998, and glasses again from 1998 to 2001. No more. I am no longer handicapped. It's cliché but true; the day after the procedure was the best day of my life! I woke up and felt this amazing sense of freedom. If you have never been a convict in this vision prison you can't understand, but to my fellow inmates, Lasik is everything they say it is, and more. A world in which I can walk confidently down the halls without any visual crutches. The surgery itself was scary. No two ways about it. I found it nearly impossible to control my fight or flight instincts during the procedure and just relax. (If you are offered drugs, take them!) Dr. Caster and his staff (they deserve big raises) were fantastic. During the scariest part of the surgery was when I was most glad I selected Dr. Caster. If I was this nervous with the best laser eye surgeon in Los Angeles, how would I have felt under the laser at Joe's Discount Eye Surgery? It's worth the money. Go to the best. And as bad as it was, it really wasn't that bad. You feel mild discomfort when the flap in your eye is cut open. Then, the laser runs for a few minutes and you're done. The anxiety I felt was all mental, I couldn't tell my to stop shaking and allow someone to cut my eye. But after a few minutes it was all over and I was on my way home. If I had to I would do it again. And again and again and again. I love my new vision that mush! What's a few minutes of discomfort for a lifetime of crutch-free vision? You can't see much immediately after the surgery. You're eyes are dilated and everything is a little blurry. Protective goggles are worn that fog up and keep moisture inside. I would lift the goggle and wipe away fog periodically to test my new vision. I noticed improvement throughout the day but nothing compared to that next morning. Computer screens look different; it takes some adjusting but I was able to work the next day. Thank you Dr. Caster. I love my new eyes! If you've been a prisoner to glasses or contacts, break free! Lasik is here.
Rick Fox – Pro Athlete
I need a rebate on my NBA career. Nine years of contacts, inconsistent vision, and frustration all gone in three hours of pre-op & 20 minutes of surgery. The hardest part was saying goodbye to the teddy bear. I'm sure everyone is different but once I realized the fog in the goggles one hour after the surgery was not my actual vision, I lifted my goggles off to a new found world. The one I remember back in college. I recovered with clear vision faster than I could have imagined. I can't wait to hit the gym and enjoy the improvements in my game.
Jason Yanagihara – Analyst
This procedure is absolutely amazing! I have never been able to function without glasses or contacts prior to having Lasik. It has only been one day, but the change in my vision is spectacular. It is like I'm wearing contacts, but I'm not. I'm seeing with my own eyes.
I was nervous going into the surgery, but during the procedure I was fine. No pain, no more glasses. I love it!
Angela Mc Cauley – Insurance Broker
Absolutely amazing - Everything is crystal clear! The entire staff is extremely friendly and professional and I would recommend them to anybody and everybody. Thanks so much!
Tina Li – Project Coordinator
There is no pain at all and I can see very clear right now. I can't believe that I can see so well without my contact lens especially my nearsighted is so worse (-8.5). I feel very good and happy now. I can't wait to show my brother and sister who also wear contact lens.
Eve Mahoney – Accountant
For the first time in over 30 years I wok up and could see. It is less than 24 hours since the operation and my vision is still improving (rapidly), but even now it is extraordinary, or more accurately miraculous.
Carol Knuice – Teacher
What a great feeling to not feel those glasses on my nose and yet see just fine. No pain - great gain.
Eric Erickson – Adverising Exec
My main reason to get the Lasik procedure was to be able to look in the mirror and see vibrant and alive eyes. For years I was sad by the fact that when I woke up and looked in the mirror - my image was not clear, the eyes looked dull, and lifeless. The day after surgery I saw in the mirror a person I haven't seen for a long time, with nice blue eyes and sharp with a sparkle.
Wearing glasses never bothered me too much, but not having to wear glasses is worth celebrating. Dr. Caster and staff receive A+ + + for the nice, calm atmosphere.
Pam Cheeseman – Florist
After years of wearing glasses and contacts this feels wonderful. It is so exciting just to drive around and look at things. I love going for walks just to look around.
Michael Bacco – Marketing
-0- pain, minimal discomfort, great vision-
Dan M. Beruman – Pressperson
Words cannot explain how I feel the warm caring people calmed my nerves. The professionalism of Dr. Caster and staff was impressive indeed. I would definitely recommend it!
Stacy Djanogly – Forensic Psych
I want to thank Dr. Caster and his whole staff for making this entire experience a pleasant one. Everyone was so warm and professional - they all put me at ease. Everyone at Caster Eye Center contributed to making this experience a positive one. As for my new eyesight - it speaks for itself!! Thank you again!!!
Veronica Sarmiento – Director of Finance
My contact lens prescription was -5.75, I had Lasik surgery yesterday afternoon, and this morning I see 20/20! It is still sinking in - but what a miracle! Everyone at Caster Eye Center is helpful and supportive. I highly recommend the surgery to every good candidate.
Dennis Granato – Engineer
Entire procedure was uneventful from the perspective of anxiety and worry. After having been dependant upon glasses for the past forty years it was a "great" experience to wake up and "sse the world". I would highly recommend the procedure to all.
The entire staff was highly professional and supportive. Thanks for everything.
Richard McIndoe – Fire Fighter
Great experience, not scary but very interesting. Unbelievable results! 20/20 in each eye, 20/15 combined. Very happy and greatful.
Leslie Maskin – Talent Agent
My experience at the Caster Eye Center was excellent.
My vision is now 20/20. The procedure was fast and painless. The people could not have been nicer or more helpful, especially Stuart and Patricia.
Dr. Caster himself could not have been nicer and his professionalism and excellent bedside manner could not make a patient feel more relaxed or comfortable.
Lisa Goodwin – Vocalist, Lyricist, Mom
What an overwhelming birthday present to receive from my husband! After seeing him go through the procedure I admit I was still hesitant, but when he handed my the opportunity how could I say no? It was effortless, painless, miraculous and even fun! Thanks to the staff and the Doctor I will be no longer a slave to my contacts and glasses. Nothing I could write here comes close to the uphoria I'm feeling but the word miracle comes very close. I'm sure everyday will bring a new sense of elation as I encounter more and more advantages to this new found freedom. Hallelujah!
Christopher Whitsell – Writer
It was terrific - the staff was wonderful, Dr. Caster incredibly reassuring and best of all - the result was even better that I hoped.
Wendy Fleiner – Controller/BK
As long as I remember at the age of eight, I needed to wear my glasses. The lazy right eye. It was part of my life - not seeing out that right eye. As an adult I tried contacts and that was very uncomfortable. My brother had both eyes Lasik and that was when I made the decision to have it done. I was amazed that I could put on regular sunglasses and see. It is a miracle. The staff are wonderful and I strongly recommend this procedure.
James Carson – Student
Like anyone else I was frightened as first becuase, after all, we only get two eyes in this lifetime. But the staff and Dr. Caster helped ease all my fears.
I was happy to find that the operation was painless and easy. All one has to do is lay down and hold on. The drugs help. With the exception of some blurriness, I was seeing extremely well, only moments after the operation. I saw some real results the following morning as my vision jumped to 20/15.
I recommend this procedure for anyone who is a candidate for eye laser surgery.
Rebecca Woods – Teacher
Amazing! This morning when I woke up I reached for my glasses out of habit. How great to realize I no longer needed them (or my scratchy contacts). I can see! Thank you Dr. Caster and everyone at the Caster Eye Center.
Shannon William – Cosmetologist
I can't remember ever seeing the black board as a child in school. I had the surgery yesterday, I woke up and I could see everything clearly. It's a miracle for me. I can see so well. Everyone was helpful and upbeat. There's no pain at all.
Mark Weidmann – Lawyer
I walked into Dr. Caster's office one day legally blind, only able to see with my glasses or contacts. I woke up the next day seeing perfectly. I had wished for this miracle to happen ever since I got my first glasses at the age of eight. Now at the age of 34, this miracle has happened after a matter of minutes at Dr. Caster's eye center.
Denise Sarriano – International Services Rep
I just had the procedure done yesterday and I am amazed at the results! When I woke up this morning, I could see the alarm clock without grabbing for my glasses!! I am so excited. Many of my friends and co-workers, (even clients) have thought about the surgery, so I was their guinea pig. I can't wait to tell then that the procedure was fast and easy and most importantly - didn't hurt at all!! I am on my way to work today - I drove myself to the follow up visit and still can't believe it. I am so happy and sincerely Thank everyone at the Caster Eye Center. They are all wonderful people who have made it a pleasant experience for me.
Craig Benell – Financial Consultant
The procedure was much easier and painless than I expected. The results exceeded my expectations as well. Everyone who works here has been very pleasant to work with. They all made me feel very comfortable.
Sheryl Kirby – Film Editor
I have worn glasses all my life. I'm not the kind of person who like to be dependent on anything, but I certainly was on my glasses. I have even run into walls in the morning before I could get to my glasses.
I had the Lasik procedure yesterday and today I have near perfect vision - after only one day of healing! I can't stop crying because it's all so unbelievable. I can see everything.
Not only can I see better, but my attitude toward the whole world is brighter and more positive.
Oh yeah, Dr. Caster and his whole staff are amazingly warm and kind people. It makes the experience that much more important and life-changing.
Rick Moncher – Internet Consultant
After considering corrective surgery over 10 years, I finally decided to have it done. Because of the seriousness of the procedure, I reviewed the experience of, and consulted with, numerous eye specialists. Not only did Dr. Caster impress me with his considerable skills and experience, but his office and staff was no less impressive. Of equal importance in my decision of having Lasik with Dr. Caster was that the two doctors I asked for a referral for the procedure both said - without hesitation - that Dr. Caster is the person they would go to. Today, just 24 hours after the procedure, I couldn't be happier with the results.
Carol Adams – Realtor
Who says, "NO PAIN - NO GAIN"!! Dr. Caster has certainly disproved that! I feel many years younger already! I want all my loved ones to participate and not miss this fabulous miracle. I feel like my aging process has reversed itself and that is a fabulous feeling.
Jennifer Anderson – Talent Agency
Much easier that I ever dreamed - although it hasn't hit me yet because I can't believe these are my own eyes.
Nelda Friedman – Equal Employment Spec
Dr. Caster and his office staff are great. They make you feel so comfortable before during and after the procedure. Surgery is great my husband had it done before me and I could not believe the experience he kept talking about until I had the surgery myself. It is really great and I will tell everyone who will listen about Dr. Caster.
Julie Siegel – Housewife
The procedure was not painful at all and very interesting and exciting. I've worn glasses for 39 years and always dreamed of not having to wear them for distance vision. Thanks to Dr. Caster my dream has come true. Thanks everyone at the Institute!
Judy Escobar – Project Manager
What a beautiful morning! I woke up today and I was able to look over at my alarm clock and actually see what time it was without having to fumble around for my glasses!
This whole experience has been a miracle for me. I have needed the aid of glasses or contact lenses for half my life. Thanks to Dr. Caster, blurry vision is now behind me. I can now see the world through my own eyes – and all in great detail! I must also give very special Thanks to Dr. Hoff and the rest of the staff. You all made this experience as pleasant and fun as it could be. For months I watched the commercial on TV. I was afraid to call and find out that I would not be a candidate for the surgery. After I finally got the courage to come in for a consultation, everything form then on was so simple. I am so glad I called! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Ajay Sahgal – Writer
Whereas once I was blind now I can see. Simple as that.
Larry Gershman – Executive
I found the entire experience of working with you people from beginning through the actual process totally professional. It could not have gone more smoothly - and I Thank You for that. The procedure was so much easier than the original Radial Keratotomy I had 8 years ago.
Thank you very much. My eyesight is 20/20.
Mark Yanni – Computer Programmer
The procedure was very easy and almost painless. I was able to work on the computer the very next day from 7:00am until noon although it was slightly blurred. My distance vision was better than with my glasses. The most painful part of the surgery was when they pulled the tape off holding my eye lashes in place!
Diane Taub – Guidance Counselor
Unless you've worn glasses since the age of 10, and contacts since age 16, then it's probably hard to relate to the miraculous feeling that I have of NOT having to EVER fuss with contact lenses, a myriad of solutions, bifocals, prescription sunglasses, discomfort constantly, etc., etc., etc.! The procedure is totally awesome. Of course it took me until afterwards for me to actually watch someone else! NO pain and just one day later I woke up and I COULD SEE perfectly! I didn't have to ask my husband what time it was. I could see the small numbers on the clock radio myself! Just unbelievable! And the staff truly feels like family. All so friendly, professional, and genuinely caring. the call that I received the next day from Stewart was so greatly appreciated! Why did I ever wait so long to do this? For me, I couldn't put a price on how good I feel. Dr. Caster is truly a genius! And a warm, sensitive Doctor to boot! Oh, yes...the best part? Being able to hold the teddy bear for comfort! A truly positive experience all around!!
Brett Robinson – Controller
Wow! Less than 20 hours after the surgery and I'm seeing better than 20/20! I haven't seen this well since freshman year of college - I thought the late nights of studying did me in for good but not so! I was referred by a friend to Dr. Caster and I can echo his glowing compliments for the staff and procedure results. The most discomfort I felt was the equivalent of what I might feel on a smoggy day with contacts left in. I would recommend this surgery and Dr. Caster specifically to anyone who wants a less hassled life - at least as it relates to my eyes! No more glasses/contacts etc. Thanks again Dr. Caster.
Barak Lurie – Attorney
I really had miserable eyesight - dramatically different in each eye. I was suffering through double vision. My glasses and contact lenses gave me headaches and eye-strain (especially in one eye). The surgery was amazingly quick and absolutely painless.
The doctors and staff were especially helpful during the follow-up. I had a "wrinkle" in my eye flap. they fixed it immediately and saw me through many of my anxious re-visits. There is no pain now - whatsoever. They were not going to let me leave until and unless I was completely happy! I never felt like I was just being "processed" and felt at times like I was their only patient. Thanks to all and your support! I recommend to everyone to do it!
Josephine Coyle – Writer
The whole experience was truly awesome. I don't know why I waited so long. The doctors and everyone at the center were wonderful - warm, helpful and professional. The procedure was, as it promised, painless. That very day I could actually see the hands on the clock, much to my amazement. I slept like a baby the rest of that day. Then the next morning I awoke with this delectable white crud on my eyes - the residue of the steroid drops. A small price to pay for what I was thrilled to be told was 20/20 vision! It really is a miracle. I would heartedly recommend it to anyone who has toiled under the burden of poor vision for years, as I did. Dr. Caster is a miracle-worker!
Barry Edzant – Attorney
wow! After wearing glasses since I was 6, I can see without them! I was the biggest skeptic around and waited over a year to have the procedure (Lasik) done. I also have a -8 diopters and refused to believe it could work for me. But I finally decided to have it done and the results are amazing. I cried tears of joy for only the second time in my life. Thank you Dr. Caster and staff for a new beginning to life!
Franca Virgili – Executive Search Consultant
Why didn't I do this before? It's incredible! I can see perfectly...every single detail...including the ugly lines on my face...Oh well! It is still worthy. Thank you for bringing me light!
PS. No pain, no discomfort and a good excuse to sleep for over 11 hours without my husband waking me up!
Elaine Fenes – Writer
It's incredible - only 24 hours later, I can see 20/30. Before the procedure, I couldn't function without glasses or contacts. It is truly magical!
Jeff Stover – Inst Tech
Everyone was very nice and the entire procedure was painless. In less than 24 hours I went from being blind to 20/20 with both eyes and 20/25 with each eye. The vision will improve more in the next 30 days. Thanks to everyone.
Linda Holliday – Administrator
Hi, I'm 50 years old, worn glasses since I was 14 and today less than 24 hours since the surgery my far distance is 20/25 and close 20/40 which will get even better in a view. Do it, Do it, Do it!
Jose Neri –
It's a miracle that I can see without contacts or glasses. Thanks to everyone in the office. Everybody was very professional. The surgical procedure was quick and easy. I recommend this to anyone who has doubts. It's the greatest feeling a person can have. Thanks again for everybody being so nice. I really do appreciate it.
Laurie Leggins – Homemaker
This is great to be able to write without putting on my glasses. I recommend this surgery to everyone. There was absolutely no pain. During surgery or the next day. Dr. Caster and his staff are truly the best.
P.S. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.
Steve Friedman – Mgt.
I had been considering this procedure for several years and with so many success stories around, I decided to give it a try. One of my associates told me about the Caster Eye Center and had the procedure done herself with great success. After investigating Dr. Caster's experience and background, I decided I couldn't go wrong. This morning when I went outside, I could see clearly at a distance. I have never been able to do in 50 years! Even glasses didn't do it for me. Today, one day after the surgery, I feel no pain, everything completely normal and painless, just like the procedure. I highly recommend it to anyone wishing to be free of glasses.
Melinda Mayer – Computer Consultant
I wish all medical procedures would be this pleasant! Everything happened the way they explained it to me and everyone saw was friendly and professional.
Robert Wolfe – Screenwriter
So it's the next morning after the procedure, and I can read license plates!, and street signs!, and the little news crawls at the bottom of the CNN broadcasts! It's pretty amazing. When I was a kid I wanted to be a pilot and couldn't because of my poor vision. Now about fifteen hours after surgery I've gone from 20/400 in both eyes to 20/20. The wonders of modern technology indeed. And all of it quick, and basically painless. Now, if I have a son who wants to go to the Air Force Academy, I'll know that his vision won't be an obstacle to him. First MTV, then the Internet, and now this. It's a great time to be alive.
Lois Lambert – Owner Art Gallery
I have worn glasses since I was 2 years old. The first miracle was when I went from glasses to contacts at the age of 12. My prescription was extremely strong and getting rid of the glasses and the distortion that goes with them was incredible for the next 40 years. Contacts went in every morning and came out at night. Over the years I lost them in every conceivable place. Sports were limited but basically I lived my life much the way a full sighted person would. When I heard about Lasik I knew it was for me. I had to wait for the technology to catch up to my prescription, then 3 months on soft contacts and finally 10 days of glasses. In all those years I never once saw anything upon waking. Today I woke up and saw my room. No reaching for contacts or glasses. I feel like a miracle had occurred. It's almost unbelievable yet it was real. I wish this surgery had been around when I was younger but I accept now with gratitude and joy. So there go my crutches. I can see!
Jody Chalek – Mother/Student
Two weeks before meeting Dr. Caster, I had been scheduled to have the procedure done by another doctor. The day before I was to have gotten the procedure done, the doctor canceled at the last minute. Having seen Dr. Caster's infomercial the night before, I took that as a sign. I never rescheduled with the other doctor and immediately scheduled the appointment with Dr. Caster. The minute I walked into the office, I knew I was an a much better place than I had been before. When I met Dr. Caster and the rest of the staff, I knew I was in the right place. Everything was done in such a professional manner and more extensive testing was done on my eyes, that had been done by the other doctor. I was not nervous about having the procedure done, as I had been before. I now have almost perfect vision, and am once again very grateful to have been guided to Dr. Caster.
Mary Lee Ryan – Attorney
Amazing! For the first time, I woke up, looked out my window and instead of seeing a green blur ... I could see individual pine needles on the tree outside my window. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Lori M. Johnson – Vice President
As I'm sure everyone else is, I was terrorized before the procedure. The procedure was really a nothing! No pain - no really loss of sight (2 seconds) No bright light 0 a red one that was easy to look at! I hope that everyone does this - 26 years of contacts, 8 more with glasses and then as of 3 years ago reading glasses! How much can a person carry! One day later - instant vision.
To be down to reading glasses is great and the day after too! No swelling, no puffiness, no headache!
Everyone at breakfast remarked how white the white of my eyes are - I want some more of those drops that get the red out! They couldn't believe I had it done yesterday.
I can see all the street signs - I love it. I will be a good advertisement for you because I am so happy and I'm not shy about it. Your staff and especially Winnie the Pooh gets a big hug from me - Thank you.
Andrew Tang – Consultant
I have been wearing my eye glasses for the last 18 years. The fact that it took only a few minutes to correct my vision from -8/-7 to 20/20 is just unbelievable!!
There's not much else I can say. If you're wearing glasses or contacts, now is the time for you to get rid of them once and for all. Remember, you only live once!
Michael Richardson – Sales Manager
Absolutely amazing! That is the best way to describe Dr. Caster and the Lasik eye procedure. Words actually can't express enough the revelation and realization of being free of glasses.
I have worn glasses for right at twenty years, and I have only dreamt of the day of not needing glasses. I had tried contacts, but I never felt comfortable.
No more! Dr. Caster gave me 20/20 vision. My dream comes true!
I'm off to see the world with new eyes. To the team at the Caster Eye Center, Thank you so so ...much!
Jack Murphy – Engineering Manager
I really appreciated the professionalism that you and your staff brought to this procedure. I tested 20/20 in each eye the day after the procedure - great work! My wife watched the entire procedure on each eye, and she will definitely have this done. Thanks again...
Tom Carlson – Film Music Editor
This morning when I awakened, the day after my Lasik, my vision was razor sharp, better than 20/20. Though it has been fluctuating through the day, I am certain from this morning experience that I am in for the best vision of my life. I am looking forward to skiing, photography, scuba diving and all of the other things that were difficult with glasses and contacts. I highly recommend this procedure to anyone who is nearsighted. It is a miracle!
Jill Gwen – V.P. Finance & Admin.
I can see!! I can see!! It's so Amazing – Thank you so much. It's like a miracle!
The very next morning I had perfect vision and had no pain whatsoever. I think I'm your new poster child...I've been telling everyone at FOX about it! I can't thank you enough. You're the best!
Wayne Charron – General Manager
I saw a clip on T.V. about the Lasik procedure at the "Caster Eye Center", and decided ti was about time to do something for myself. After 32 years of glasses and every new contact that hit the market I thought, stop spending the money on remedies and get the surgery.
I was amazed. True to what they said there was absolutely no pain. And I have to say that everyone at the center made me feel most comfortable and assured.
My thanks to Dr. Caster and his whole staff.
Matthew Kearns – T.V. Executive
This was a breeze. Dr. Caster and staff walk you through the entire process so there are no surprises. The whole thing was much simplier than any visit to the dentist I've ever had. It's just routine. Have no fear.
In my experience the worst parts were
Wearing glasses for 10 days before the procedure
Keeping the second eye open while the first was undergoing the procedure
The unexpected "buzz saw" sound of the keratome - but don't let that scare you. It was painless.
The discomfort of the dialation the day before.
With 20/25 vision the day after I'm very happy I went through this. My advice - DO IT - and do it with Dr. Caster
Carol Rice – Senator (TN) Retired
The process of Lasik surgery was a marvelous experience with excellent results. Everyone involved is knowledgeable and extremely professional. I feel very fortunate to have undergone this procedure and will highly recommend Dr. Caster and his team to anyone, and certainly to my friends.
Maria R. San Gabriel – Portfolio Adminstrator
I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to Dr. Caster and all his staff. They were all so wonderful, very helpful with the whole process.
I will highly recommend him to all my friends and relatives for a job well done.
Sean O'Neill – Financial Analyst
All the talk prior to the procedure was ten times worse than the procedure itself. 10 hours after the procedure, which was completely painless and quicker that I ever expected, I can see clearly. I can't believe I had something done yesterday afternoon. I woke up like it was any other morning other than the fact that I could see significantly better. I would recommend that to anyone. Finally, the staff was great and they held my hands throughout the process.
Jim Province –

Sharon Wiseman –
I was so amazed how easy the procedure was. I was very scared at first and almost changed my mind because I'm such a chicken! But the staff and Dr. Caster were so calming and comforting I decided to go through with it. It was one of the best decisions of my life! The procedure was so quick that I really didn't have time to think about it. The little blue pill given I hour before sure helped too!! Thank you for helping me achieve my dreams of perfect vision!!
P.S. Terrific doctor. Terrific Staff!!
Eric Goldman – Film Production
What can I say? This is truly incredible. I've had to wear glasses since 5th grade, and contacts always irritated my eyes after a few hours. I am so excited to be able to simply wake up and see everything.
Driving this morning I was reading every sign, every license plate and amazed that I finally could. Thank you so much Dr. Caster!
Mark S. Wapnick – President
I promised myself that the first thing I would do upon returning to my office would be to add to your ever increasing list of totally satisfied patients who memorialize their happiness in writing. Everything about the Lasik procedure went precisely as I had been told it would, and true to those expectations, here I am at work the very next morning, prepared to take on the world with 20/20 vision.
Last evening my mother called me to find out how I was doing. She and I recalled the day in 1959 when it was determined that I would need eyeglasses. Now, forty years (and countless pairs of glasses and contact lenses) later, we shared the moment when I told her I will be giving my glasses to charity. We cried!
Thank you (and your extremely courteous and responsive staff) for giving me back my precious eyesight. Life will now simply be better for having experienced Lasik under your skilled care.
Saul Markowitz – Captain
Once again, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for making my eyes perfect. I'm on "Cloud 9" over how well I can see without those pesky contacts and glasses. I was extremely impressed on how very nice your whole staff is and how beautiful your office is, which is a reflection on you, and I'm sure my friends will agree with me when they walk in. All my friends with glasses should be giving you a call. Even today when I took a test drive in a new Cadillac Seville STS with performance algorithm shifting, I told the sales lady who wore glasses about what happened to me and she too should call you soon. I'm looking forward to seeing you again on my next visit. Take care and good luck in everything.
Andrea Hein –
Thank you, thank you, thank you for my new pair of eyes! Seeing the alarm clock in the morning, being able to sleep on an airplane without glasses, not worrying about New York city soot getting under my contacts and ALL OF THIS AND MORE with no muss, no fuss. I am a real convert and am a great fan of you and your team. I can't say enough great things about all of you! Here's to 20/20 vision!
Fraser Robertson –
I felt that the quality of service and attention which I received last week from you, and all of your gracious staff, merited this letter.
It was thanks to Dr. Michael Levin, I was recommended to you and made an immediate decision to undergo the surgery at the Caster Eye Center. I have worn glasses and contact lens, hard and soft, for over 20 years. I had -6 and -6.5, level of "blindness"! I always thought that lens were the ultimate seeing experience, especially as I enjoy outdoor sports. However, the enviroment is not always "lens - friendly", as I have discovered form the beaches of Saint Tropez to the steppes of Mongolia! Everyone who travels can bear witness to this.
Any trepidation, which I may have had about the operation, the outcome and ...what could go wrong, were quickly dispelled by the evaluation and measurement examinations both by Michael, and again by your team. The pre-op briefing was extremely helpful and thorough with all the questions answered fully. As a result, I felt very comfortable and relaxed before the brief surgery.
The surgery itself was painless and quick. The result is really a modern miracle! I recommend all nearsighted people to strongly consider consultation and the procedure at the Caster Centre.
I would appreciate if you would convey to your team my immense satisfaction and gratitude for all their care and professional attention. I compliment you also on the beautiful enviroment of your stylish and efficient offices, which enhanced the experience for me.
I would be very happy to act as a testimonial, if any doubtful patients wish to call me. I wish you continued success and satisfaction to you and all your team.
John Davimos – Mortgage Broker
The procedure was great. From the very first appointment to the follow-up, everyone treats you great. You know that you are in capable hands with people who really care about making your life better. The procedure itself is incredibly simple. It is short and painless, and when you wake up the next day your vision is perfect.
Gene M. Gamache – Editor - Motion Picture
I've been wearing glasses since I was a sophmore in High School. I never thought I would ever see without glasses or contacts again. It's a miracle at age 35 I can see great. No more glasses or contacts. Dr. Caster and his staff are wonderful people and truly made the entire experience easy and painless.
Marc Levine – Physical Therapist
Working as a physical therapist I'm always trying to help people get over their injuries or make the most out of what they have. The best feeling I can ever have is to see my patients recover and do well - often times the results are not that dramatic.
All I can say is that Dr. Caster must be a very happy man because he helps people in a very dramatic way each day. My apprehension has turned to joy as now I can see perfectly one day after my procedure. (I've worn contacts or glasses since I was 12).
The staff was great, making me feel comfortable and confident and special the whole way through. My Thanks to Dr. Caster and all his staff for this modern miracle and I wish all that have struggled with glasses and contacts to have the experience I had. If you're a candidate for this procedure, don't hesitate- you won't regret it!
Will Wennerberg – CPA
Even Bill Clinton couldn't lie about this! It is remarkably easy and the benefits are wonderful. I feel 14 years old again.
JoAnn Ralphs –
Thank you for perfecting a method for painless - eye correction!! I can see –- clocks, road signs, faces! Throughout the three visit process I was acutely aware of the high competence level of the staff and physicians, which was extremely reassuring. Your procedures on the day of the Lasik procedure provided comfort on all levels. I will recommend your eye center to everyone I know!!
Marcy J. Bruno – Advertising Executive
I AM WRITING THIS WITH NO GLASSES!!!
Wearing glasses was such a bother. Contacts were too uncomfortable, so I was left with the only option - eye glasses. I started wearing glasses at about 18 years old and found that my physical activity declined. I couldn't jog without my glasses hurting my nose. I couldn't ski without the goggles squeezing my glasses against my temples. Then I started researching Lasik surgery and kept hearing about Dr. Caster - they were all success stories! I woke up this morning and read the clock! Drove myself here and now can't wait to be fully active again!
P.S. The staff is great! The most friendly, genuine people I have worked with.
Grace Najai – Artist
I've been wearing glasses since I was 12 years old and have been waiting for the miracle of corrective vision for years. As soon as I met Dr. Caster and his staff, all doubt and anxiety disappeared. I knew everything was going to be perfect. I was right! Today, I woke up and everything around me was so sharp and clear. I could put my make-up without having to put my face so close to the mirror. I just found out that my vision is 20/20 in the left and 20/25 in the right. I'll be on the phone all day recommending Dr. Caster and his staff. As a matter a fact, I just met my cousin and his girlfriend waiting to visit Dr. Caster for their first consultation. They're in the best of hands.
Wayne Root – Author/TV Sportscaster
My special thanks to Dr. Andrew Caster and staff - who have performed a miracle - literally! My prior vision was 20/1200 since I was 7 years old. I've worn contacts and/or glasses for 25 years and without them was literally blind. It was frightening to take out my contacts. Suddenly this morning - the day after surgery - I can see! I can't believe I have no contacts in! This is remarkable.
Tari Heslop – Student
It was easier and better than I ever expected! I only wish I had done this years ago. Dr. Caster and the staff were the best. Calm, supportive and held my hand through the whole thing.
Thank you for changing my life in wonderful way that I never imagined. I'll never forget the day I get my sight back!
Merle Ginsberg – Editor/Journalist
I wore gas permeable hard contact lenses for the last ten years - they were always getting make-up and dirt in them, and I was forever having to pop them out and clean them - even in mild - conversation! Finally, I gave up on them and bought five pairs of beautiful designer frame glasses, at about $500 a piece. However, my vision in them was never great, they always felt uncomfortable and I was constantly switching from clear glasses to sunglasses.
Now I'm FREE forever! Free from contacts, free from glasses and free form stumbling around in my own house when I couldn't find anything until I had glasses on. I think having Lasik can make you feel younger and free-er and less encumbered. I can't wait till smoky eye makeup comes back!
Robin Stover – Robin Stover
I have had to wear glasses since I was fifteen years old - I'm now 43. I decided to take a "chance." There is absolutely nothing to fear! Everyone here is professional, kind, and patient! The procedure itself is nothing! It takes 5 minutes and you feel nothing except a light pressure. I had absolutely no pain or irritation afterward - and I didn't take the pain medication. I actually went right out to lunch with my friend. Now - my vision is absolutely near perfect! And, I'm told in the next few months it will sharpen even more. I drove here - everything was crystal clear! I'm writing this now - and the page is sharp and clear. It was worth every penny!
Julie Raphael – Personal Assistant
My experience with Dr. Caster and the entire office was absolutely fabulous! Today is the day after the procedure and I am seeing almost perfectly! No problems with my eyes at all! And the procedure was easier than a dental filling!
Thank you all very much and I will be referring at least 2 - 3 more friends and family for the procedure.
Katherine Johnson – Health Care Practitioner
I couldn't be happier. I have worn glasses since fourth grade. Today, the day after the procedure, I have gone from worse than 20/400 to 20/25. I know things will only get better.
Not only would I be willing to recommend this procedure to others, I would highly encourage them to come to Dr. Caster's clinic. He is the best and his staff is efficient and enthusiastic.
I could go on and on but I'm still reeling from the excitement of this miracle.
Shane Selph – Financial Consultant
The operation was a wonderful success. I was worried about the outcome as I keeloid (scar excessively). Dr. Caster said that Lasik would not be effected by the keeloid condition, and it wasn't!! Three months laster I see better than 20/20
Randy Sawchk – Sales Manager
I was recommended by a friend from Vancouver to do the Lasik surgery. Since hers was so successful I decided to set up an appointment with Dr. Caster. The procedure took less than 45 minutes. No time to worry about anything. All the staff couldn't be any nicer to you. I personally had no pain during or after or the next morning. On a clear day I can see forever since I live up in the Hollywood Hills the next morning I could see Long Beach and Catalina Island with NO glasses. Wish I could have done this ten years ago instead of 4-2-1999
Mark Mathews – Software Engineer
I can see perfectly for the first time in over 20 years. I am ecstatic over the results and thank Dr. Caster, Hoff and their staff for their great service and professionalism. The procedure was painless, and effortless and I would recommend it to anyone who wants their vision restored.
Sharon McKenderick – Office Manager
Its amazing! The procedure itself is painless and was so quick that the pre-jitters I felt were totally unnecessary. I felt foolish afterwards knowing how easy the whole thing actually is.
My vision is incredible. I can see highway signs at a distance and close up paperwork as well. And to think its only going to get better in the next few months is phenomenal.
I highly recommend this procedure to anyone who may be considering it. And Dr. Caster and his staff offer professional and caring concern to their patients. I really felt I was in the best hands possible here at the Caster Eye Center.
My new theme song is "I can see clearly now!" Many, many thanks to all of you here at the Center
Thomas J. Murphy – Producer/Actor
I can not thank you enough for this miracle you have given to me. After such a bad experience at the Laser Vision Center I was tentative to try the procedure again. I just wanted so badly to get rid of my glasses, they are such a hassle. They interfere with all the things that I enjoy the most such as snowboarding, surfing, golfing, even acting or playing my guitar. I was just desperate to see clearly. Your staff was so professional, caring and friendly that I really felt comfortable. The actual procedure was a breeze, I was surprised how easy, fast and painless it was. Lasik really is easy and definitely worth it. The main thing I learned is you have to have the right doctor, and Dr. Caster is the right doctor.
John Minogue – Computer Graphics
I have worn glasses for years, and have noticed that my eyesight was slowly getting worse. I heard about Dr. Caster through an infomercial and thought I would try his procedure. The procedure was very easy, and I am very happy now.
Agi Schwartz –
A wonderful, cheerful office. Everyone was helpful and attentive. Dr. Caster did a wonderful job. I'll be back to do my other eye soon.
Sonia Chui – Fashion Designer
It is so amazing to open my eyes when I woke up, it was as if I was wearing my contact lenses to sleep, everything was perfectly clear. I have no discomfort, no pain whatsoever. I knew It was going to be good, but the actual result was still unexpected. All the staff are wonderful, the entire procedure was thoroughly explained and everything was according to schedule. Truly looking forward to no more contact lenses, no more glasses.
Diane Bernstein – Psychotherapist
I am amazed! This was easier than pulling off a bandaid (taking the tape off my eyelashes was the only thing I even felt) and a whole lot more rewarding!
I had it done in the late afternoon, went home, ate dinner, slept unitl the next morning (the pill was very effective) and woke up seeing 20/20!!!
What a joy never again to wear glasses or mess with my contacts, making sure I always have the myriad of necessary solutions available.
This is a great thing - no one should hesitate to do it. Also, the staff is friendly, fun, warm, amusing, and very knowledgeable.
Mark Chassman – Lawyer
What a fantastic experience. It is 24 hours after my procedure and I am 20/20. The procedure was painless and easy, and Dr. Caster and his staff were wonderful. I cannot thank everyone enough.
Ellia Jones – Investment Banking
To the reader of this note who feel any reservation about going forward; relax. At worst, the procedure is an easy day at the dentist. While easy and painless for the patient, Dr. Caster and his group here clearly hold themselves to the highest standards and are completely thorough during the entire process.
I now, 18 hours later, have 20/20 vision and can see the "real" view from my office for the very first time. My vision is better than it ever was with contacts or glasses.....going home now to throw away my 6 months supply of contact lens solution. Buy Caster...Short Lenscrafter
Wendy Mohammed-Derzaph – Deputy District Attorney
I can see! I can see! Dr. Caster performed a miracle. This is like being able to walk again after sitting in a wheelchair for years. The wonder of seeing my husband and my son for the first time without glasses or contacts is amaz
I am 20/20 vision combined only one day after Lasik. I can now see the alarm clock without reaching for my glasses first. I can no go swimming with my 2 year old son without being afraid my glasses will be knocked of.
I Thank Dr. Caster for his wonderful talent, demeanor and accessibility. I Thank Laura, Patricia, and all the staff, especially Stuart who all held my hand and were absolutely corret about the procedure being painless. It was. Waxing my eyebrows were more painful. I will definitely refer friends, family and strangers to Caster Eye Center because you are the best. I did a lot of research as you know!
Barry Saitman – Consultant
Something is missing. I keep reaching for glasses I don't really need anymore. After one day I can now look into a mirror and see the same person I've always seen. Yet something is missing. I can see myself as clearly - but there are no more glasses. I look forward to seeing the stars - as I fall asleep outdoors.
Alex Lukens – Optician
My experience at Caster Eye Associates was fantastic. Everyone there is competant, knowledgable, and above all very friendly. All those characteristics put me at ease in a situation that could make one nervous. Also watching a procedure during my first visit there put me at ease after seeing how quick and painless it seemed.
The best part was waking the next morning and realizing that I could see perfectly and I hadn't fallen asleep with my contact lenses in. I'd recommend Dr. Caster to anyone who wants to see clearly all the time, anytime!
Maria Greenshields – Sculpist
I was most apprehensive about the possible inability to focus for the first few days after the operation. However after approximately four hours (and a good sleep!) I could see as well as I see after a long hard day wearing only contact lenses (ie. slightly blurred but not greatly disturbed).
Today I see as well as with my contact lenses in (before a long hard day!) I find this remarkable as my left eye was -9.50 (it is now 20/25) my right eye was -8.50 (it is now, 24 hours after procedure, 20/20)
Everyone here was incredibly friendly and I found myself totally at ease throughout. Thank you!
Victoria Sosa – Accounting Supervisor
I waited for a full week before writing this. Although the post-operative instructions stated that "it is normal to experience discomfort such as irritation, swelling, light sensitivity, wateriness, and scratchiness for the first few days after the operation," I am delighted to report that none of those things happened to my eyes for the first week. I am very happy with my decision to have eye laser surgery. This is the best gift I have ever given myself!
I commend Dr. Caster and her very friendly staff for making this possible. I am glad I made the right choice of doctor.
To truly express my gratitude to Dr. Caster, I have been telling my relatives, officemates and friends about my wonderful and exciting experience! I have convinced three people so far and they should be calling you any time soon. I will keep on spreading the good news (highly recommending Dr. Caster, of course) so that many people can experience the happiness I do feel now.
AGAIN CONGRATULATIONS TO DR. CASTER, DR. HOFF, AND THE STAFF FOR A JOB WELL DONE!
Monique Fernandez – Public Relations Rep.
My story is very simple. I walked into Dr. Caster's office blind––then 2 weeks later I walked out without glasses for the first time since I was 12.
There are no words that can truly describe the feelings and emotions that you feel upon being able to see clearly without glasses.
For anyone thinking about Lasik eye surgery and your slightly apprehensive, let me be the first to put your mind at ease....There wasn't any pain, just a little irritation like a hair (eyelash) was under my contact lens. So let me be the first to say.
THANK YOU DR. CASTER AND THE CASTER EYE CENTER STAFF. For before meeting you - I once was Blind but now I see!!
Arlene Simsarian – Production Manager
Having worn glasses since I was 7 and hard contacts since I was 16; to be able to wake up the morning after the procedure with 20/20 vision and no pain or side effect is truly miraculous. The entire staff put me at ease through every step of the procedure, not leaving any room for me to be anxious or have doubts. My line of work requires much air travel and I now look forward to no discomfort from the dry cabin air. Additionally my enjoyment of sports, especially water sports, will be totally enhanced by my new sight. I couldn't be happier with results except that I wish I'd done this several years ago.
Izabel Araujo – Supervisor
Having just had the procedure done yesterday, I'm still experiencing the initial shock of seeing everything so clearly! The whole process has been simple and pain-free.
I can't wait to go on my first vacation in which I don't have to pack an extra bag just for my contact lens stuff!! Life just got a whole lot easier!
THANK YOU DR. CASTER AND YOUR FRIENDLY STAFF!!
Mary Organ – Business Owner
It's wonderful. I highly recommend it. I was extremely nervous and needed a lot of encouragement - which they gave me. It's very difficult to put into words the feeling of being able to see after over 20 years of wearing glasses. There was no pain, only slight discomfort. WOULD I RECOMMEND IT - YES, YES, YES!!
Kenneth Kawamoto – Financial Consultant
After marginal results with PRK on my left eye at another eye center, I was extremely pleased with the results of my Lasik on my right eye with Dr. Caster.
The follow-up as well as preparing me for the surgery was a plus when compared to the "other eye center"!
Chad C. Landaus – Personal Trainer
The procedure was pain-free and done quickly! The staff was always polite and courteous and kept me calm when I got nervous.
I highly recommend this procedure and especially Dr. Caster and his staff. I've told my friends that if I wasn't such a "tough-guy" I would have cried!
THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!
Linda Fay Groan – Airline Flight Attendant
I feel I have had a "hands-on" healing experience - after 40 years of eyeglasses and contact lens dependency - I am having the time of my life being able to work, play, and wake up in the morning to see the rays of sunlight - not the fog!
I can only applaud modern technology of a laser along with the skill of a trusting and knowledgeable surgeon, that of Dr. Andrew Caster!!
The Lasik procedure is the only way - and I am grateful for the use of the procedure - NO PAIN and INSTANT RESULTS, what better way! I may have waited a long time to correct my vision, but this Lasik was worth waiting for!
Thank you Dr. Caster and all of your staff who made me feel very comfortable and anxiety fee; as much as possible! I now look forward to having my other eye corrected.
Mark Coleman – Manager high-tech Company
I recommend the Lasik procedure, and Dr. Caster and his staff, very highly. The entire process from the initial examination through the actual Lasik surgery and post-op follow-up was handled with absolute professionalism. The results ARE spectacular, there was NO PAIN, and only minimal discomfort during recovery measured in hours.
As I looked up at the sky the other night while walking, for the first time since I was a kid, the stars were tiny little "pin-pricks" of light... No blurriness whatsoever
Scott Shinmoto – Financial Analyst
It's very difficult to explain the feeling I have regarding the results at my Lasik surgery. Its as though, literally, that I have a new on life. For many years I've been very dependent on corrective lenses. I've always enjoyed outdoor activities, but was somewhat limited in what I could do (especially water sports). Now when I go snorkeling, I can actually see the fist and appreciate the beauty of the ocean life.
The increased sense of security is also a positive result, whereby now I know that I can see during any emergency situation. I would, and have, highly recommended the procedure, as well as, Dr. Caster.
Valerie Grant – Mother
This procedure is such an incredibly easy experience, I cannot imagine anyone not wanting to do it. At the most it is seconds of very slight discomfort. In minutes you have sight. The next day you're running around as if nothing happened except you're not wearing glasses or contacts.
I think I'll start collecting sunglasses.
Susana Arroyo – House Wife
I like the surgery. I didn't feel any pain. I'm happy to have had the operation.
Steve Spoutz – Consultant
I am very, very pleased with the results of the Lasik surgery, not to mention the professional manner in which the whole process/procedure was handled.
I have nothing but positive things to say about Dr. Caster and his staff. I see better now than I could have ever imagined. Thank you!
Peter M. Cusick – V.P. G.M. MARITZ INC.
What can I say 30 years of EYEGLASSES... Now perfect vision and the Big Surprise, No reading glasses either. I played 5 years in the National football League (N.E. Patriots). Had this procedure been performed by Dr. Caster I might STILL BE PLAYING! In summary Dr. Caster has performed a miracle.
Matthew Duffield – Retail Manager
The first time I really noticed the difference was when I was taking a shower and watched a drop of water trickle all the way down the wall. This made me realize how bad my eyes were before the surgery. Even, with glasses I could not pass the Eye Test and the DMV. Dr. Caster said don't worry we will fix that.
I am more than amazed with the results. Its a whole new look on life, from playing pool to just reading signs and things I could even dream of before. Even being able to wake up and read the alarm clock or just watch television.
I would recommend the Lasik surgery to anyone. It is more than worth it. The staff and Dr. Caster is very professional and get to know you on a first name basis. Again Thank you to both Dr. Caster and all his staff.
Carol Alexander – Asst. Principal
The procedure took about 20 seconds there was no pain and all I had to do was look at the blinking red light. Afterwards I was given a kit with eye drops for lubrication and an antibiotic for infection. I could see immediately. There was no pain what so ever nor was there any scratchiness. The pill I was given for pain made me sleepy and I slept from 9:30am to 4:30pm. I awoke and could see perfectly. What a delight not to need contacts nor glasses for the first time in 50 years. I am delighted and would recommend the procedure to everyone who is nearsighted.
Matthew Haberkorn – Attorney
Having completed the surgery only 24 hours prior to writing this testimonial and being told my eyes are 20/20 is truly amazing. There was ZERO pain involved prior to, during, or after the procedure. I thoroughly recommend the procedure to all interested and can ensure no one will be disappointed with the results.
Thank you to Dr. Caster and his staff for a great experience. You will all be in my thoughts in the future as my wife (also a patient) and I go on able to see each other and the world more clearly without the assistance of glasses or contacts.
Jodi Rowe – Psychotherapist
It is the most amazing thing to walk in without seeing well and walk out with 20/20 vision - like magic! I had no pain or discomfort at all during or after the procedure. I haven't seen this well for 27 years. Everyone was great. Thanks.
Vicky Vogt – Horse Trainer
The most wonderful thing I've ever done for myself. Dr. Caster is fantastic and very patient - especially with my very sensitive, blinking eyes. How fun it is not to wear glasses. My horses used to, all the time hit me in the glasses. I had to constantly have my glasses adjusted and readjusted – no more! Yeh!!
Arleen Gershen – Psychotherapist and Mom
This procedure, technique and Dr. Caster's skill are truly miraculous in every way. I've been highly myopic since age 7, needed glasses or contact lenses to function in the world. Now I can eliminate all of the paraphernalia that one must use when eyesight is poor - there is truly a feeling of freedom! I can see street signs, the clock in the middle of the night, and my children's faces upon awakening. I currently live in Colorado but have made several visits to LA just so that Dr. Caster could perform the surgery. It was well worth it!
Nicholas A. Nguyen – Student
For most of my life, I've worn contacts or glasses and it has always been frustrating or limiting. Discovering Dr. Caster and his Lasik technique was life changing. This gives me the opportunity to thank Dr. Caster in writing and to show my appreciation.
Aron Lichtenberg – Manufacturing
When I started using glasses at the age of 18 my physical activities suffered as the result of the change of my vision. Even while wearing glasses I could not perform any sport with the same skill level.
Throughout the years to follow, my vision deteriorated to the point that I stopped many activities which required good vision, and I needed to wear my glasses. Some of these activities did not allow me to wear the glasses due to the level of physical activity. Now that I have 20/20 vision back, I am excited to recapture those activities.
The procedure is as simple as it can be. I have had no pain or discomfort one day after the procedure.
Ron Barks – Owner (Supplier-Fundraising Products)
I was somewhat apprehensive about the procedure. But it went really smooth. There was absolutely no discomfort during the procedure. I have had no discomfort since the operation. In just 24 hours my vision is 20/25.
The cost of my Laser Surgery was the most worth while money I have spent in a long while.
Dr. Caster and his staff have been Great throughout. From my first visit through my follow up visit and exam. Thank you all very much!
Nancy Contreras – Student
First of all I would like to say Thank you to everyone for being so kind, to Dr. Caster for his wonderful job. I never thought that I would be able to see 20/20 without glasses! (Thanks for giving me a teddy to hug during the procedure!)
David Van Etten – Attorney
The entire experience was terrific. Dr. Caster and his entire staff are wonderful, caring professionals. The procedure, follow-up care, etc. were explained in detail. There were no surprises-everything was just as explained. It made an otherwise difficult and anxious time easy to tolerate. I believe that I received the best treatment available. I give Dr. Caster and his team an A+.
P.S. I can see great now and I can't find the words to describe that feeling.
Richard Abrams – Retired Scientist/Mgr.
Surgery was remarkably easy
• No pain
• Little anxiety
• Only mild discomfort (scratchy eyes) for a few hours after procedure.
Danielle Winter – Designer - Heidelberg, Germany
"It's a miracle!! For the first time since I remember I can see clearly. I am so thankful to Dr. Caster. It's like I can take a "second glance" at life. Thank you so much!"
Amy White – Graphic Designer
I feel great. I am 24 hours past the surgery and I can see so we..! I was so proud of myself for driving here without my glasses for the first time in 20 years! I recommend it to anyone who wants to be contact or glasses free - DO IT!
Lupe Vela – Recycling Manager – LA
Having been nearsighted since I was 4 years old. I had to deal with "coke bottle" lenses for a long time. I have used contact lenses for 22 years but as I got older they bothered me more often. Undergoing the surgery is an emotional experience. The next day I could see and drive without any assistance. If this surgery was available early on in my life, I would have a better image of myself. I now look forward to learning to swim and trying riskier sports. My family still can't believe this!
Pam Stohl – Programmer/Analyst
The Lasik procedure was virtually painfree, and only took minutes to complete. I had thought about doing the procedure for 1 year, since it got approved for my extreme myopia (-10 diopters right eye, -8 left). Wish I had done it months ago!
The day after I'm seeing 20/30 – its unbelievable - I drove the day after. As Dr. Caster's book claims, it's truly a miracle.
Dr. Caster's calm "bedside manner", and the professionalism and friendliness of his staff helped to put many of my fears of the surgery aside. It was Dr. Caster's calmness, in addition to his reputation that allowed me to choose him for this surgery.
I had worked with Dr. Hoff for 2 1/2 months prior to the surgery to try out "monovision" with soft contacts – his patience and personality were a joy to work with.
I highly recommend this procedure and Dr. Caster to anyone considering it. It has already made a difference in my life!
Amy Lawrence – Attorney
I'm amazed! The procedure was a snap - no pain, no discomfort, no anxiety (except, maybe - my own perfectionist anxiety during the "task" of staring at a red light without moving). Thrilled is an understatement. And I can't believe that my vision is so clear just the next day - without any hint that I had surgery.
Bryan Turner – CEO
The procedure was painless, a little scary waiting to have it done. The office assistants are very friendly and comforting, and reassuring. The results the day after the procedure are quite amazing. I have 20/20 vision.
Mila Federis – Paralegal
The whole procedure was painless. It's nice to wake up in the morning without groping for my eyeglasses. I look forward to traveling without worrying about extra contact lenses or extra glasses for emergency. Dr. Caster was great and I'm grateful for the opportunity to get this corrective surgery through his skilled and excellent operation.
Lon Yatman – Exec.
• Extremely excited with results to his left eye.
• Is looking forward to his next procedure (R. Eye)
• Feels he looks younger without glasses and he actually feels younger!
• Very positive all around -
• Sight beyond his expectations -
• Still in awe of it. Loves the results so far
Ken Rosadiuk –
Overall I found the Lasik procedure to be quite simple and non-invasive. Having had eye surgery to remove pterygiums 20 years ago which involved a shot in the eye and scalpels, I found this procedure to be very simple and straightforward. I chose the Caster Eye Center over my own ophthalmologist based on their entire presentation...the courtesy, professionalism, and thoroughness of the entire staff is extraordinary. Prior to having the procedure I was given all the facts to make an informed decision; both the dangers inherent in the procedure as well as the benefits were thoroughly examined. I highly recommend Dr. Caster to anyone contemplating Lasik surgery.
Cathy O'Donnel – Skating Instructor
From initial visits to the completion of surgery I felt very comfortable and satisfied. It is the best thing that I have ever done for myself.
Jordan Nakatsuka – Director, Group Health Insurance Underwriter
Thank you very much, Dr. Caster and staff, for restoring the best vision I've had since I was a young boy. It's an amazing procedure and a wonderful gift that Dr. Caster has developed to help so many people recover this valuable sense.
The surgery was very quick, simple, and painless. Recover time was so short that I was expecting more discomfort and obscured vision beyond the actual recovery period. I experienced no pain at any point during or following the surgery. I don't think I really needed the pain pill Dr. Caster gave me immediately following the surgery. I didn't think I needed the valium prior to the surgery either, but my wife would disagree.
I'm amazed at how quickly I regained such good vision following the procedure. I still get confused whether I have my contacts on. I'm hoping for ever more improvements as the weeks and months go by.
I've been thoroughly impressed with caring and professionalism of Dr. Caster and his entire staff - from the initial consultation through the preliminary measurements and the actual surgery. I also appreciate the fact that Dr. Caster personally examined me and spent time answering all my questions, even following the surgery.
I'll highly recommend Dr. Caster to my friends and business associates because of the excellent results and caring customer service I received.
Donna Hunt – Clerk
I have been wearing glasses for 23 years. This is now the day after the Lasik procedure and I still can't quite believe that I can actually see without corrective lenses. It is absolutely amazing! Everyone at the Caster Eye Center was very friendly and helpful which made the entire experience less scary for me. I would and will recommend Dr. Caster to my friends.
Kelly Creel – Investment Banking
Unbelievable! Quick relatively painless procedure - clear vision the next day. Highly recommend to anyone with vision problems. Dr. Caster and his team were very helpful and kind (I was slightly nervous). Colors and detail are much sharper than I ever imagined. One word - Amazing.
James Respondek – Realtor
I've worn glasses for about 15 years and am very active and busy. I hate looking for, carrying and cleaning glasses and cannot wear in certain sports activities i.e. surfing, swimming etc.
Dr. Michael Levin my eye doctor suggested Dr. Caster's surgery. Dr. Levin had the procedure as Dr. Caster had. Several others I know had it as well. The reports were all overwhelmingly positive as so I booked the surgery. I was fully informed, pre operation preparation was smooth and reassuring. The procedure was very quick and practically painless. - I was sedated just enough before and after so I could still function but had almost no discomfort. My vision is 10 times better already and should be perfect when the swelling goes down - I whole hearted recommend the surgery and definitely recommend Dr. Caster to do it. Thanks a million.

Wow! What can I say? I am at a loss for words. This is truly a life changing experience. The restoration of my sight has given me new freedom. Dr. Caster is a miracle worker!
Cheryl Kohler Wright – Director, Mattel Toys
Every morning for as long as I can remember, I would wake and look out my window at a blur of green - they were trees actually, - but to me it was just s green blur. This morning, I opened my eyes and could see every leaf, every branch, every distinction of the different trees. It really feels as if Dr. Caster has performed a miracle. I'd recommend it to everyone!
DeeDee Levey – Health Aide Public School
After wearing glasses since I was in third grade and always having to be self conscious I feel like I've been given the best gift anybody can give themself. It was absolutely painless and not uncomfortable. What amazed me the most was that I woke up the morning after and everything was clear, I didn't have to fumble around trying to find my other eyes (my glasses). I've always wanted to be able to swim and not have to be fearful of not getting our of the water just to find my glasses missing.
This is a remarkable step in medicine which will enable anyone with bad eye vision to be free of glasses and enjoy the beauty around them.
I can't wait to spread the news!
P.S. When they say it only takes a few minutes they're telling you the truth! What a joy!!
Ruthe Betti – Botanist
Truly Amazing. Thank You so!
Diane Gilden – Legal Secretary
When going home after the procedure, I was able to see clear across the room (with the vision a little out of focus). But, it felt like I still had my contact lenses in. (I slept most of the day.) When I woke up the next morning, I could see everything along the way, when I got to the doctor's office, I learned that my vision was 20/20 (20/20 in my right eye and 20/30 in my left). It is truly amazing and just by looking into my eyes, you would never know I just underwent laser surgery.
Peter Hernandez – Coldwell Banker Real Estate Manager
I wish that those considering the operation could really believe now simple and painless it really is. The day after I was hitting Golf balls and could actually see where they were going. My vision is clearer and sharper than when I was wearing glasses or contacts. Quite simply, its a miracle.
Alfred V. Christophersen – Manager
The procedure was not threating and I only felt a tolerable amount of pressure on my eyeball while the lens was being "hinged".
My eyes were comfortable after the procedure, and although I wore the dark glasses as suggested, when I took them off to adminster the eye drops, I felt no discomfort from the light.
There was no need for a pain pill, (and really no need for me to have been in the house!) When I removed the clear plastic eye protectors this morning, the day after the surgery, I could see clearly and I read the morning newspaper before coming in for my "day-after" check-up.
Everything went perfectly, and I see great. I'm thrilled to be rid of the glasses and contacts! Free at last! Thanks from a happy camper.
Janet L. Gaines – Radio Station Sales Manager
"Amazing" is the only word I can use to describe the outcome of my Lasik Eye Surgery that Dr. Caster performed.
When I woke up the next morning. I could see leaves on the trees, read license plates on cars and the fine point that before was totally unrecognizable!
I am truly very pleased with the results - and with the easy recovery period. Quick & Simple! Thank You Dr. Caster for your expertise in restoring my eyesight to 20/20 vision (the day after the surgery). I will highly recommend you to my friends, family and all those who currently wear glasses!
Trudy Emeterio – Petroleum Dist.
Great! I drove 15 hour later without glasses.
Kaydee McKinney – Legal Secretary
After forty years of wearing contacts and glasses. I sat up in the chair immediately after the procedure and not only saw the clock but I could tell the time: 10:05. This procedure is absolutely amazing. The doctor and the staff were very supportive and answered all my questions – and some I hadn't ever thought about. I elected to have monovision. It has been less than 24 hours, and if this is as good as it gets I'm extremely happy, however, the vision should get sharper as my eyes adjust to the monovision. No more glasses! White river rafting and water skiing here I come. Many thanks to all involved!
Andrew Gee – Account
I have been wearing glasses and/or contact lenses since I was eight years old. I don't even remember being able to see clearly without them. It is unbelievable that I don't have to reach for a pair of glasses in the morning when I wake up or take off my contacts before I go to sleep.
Everyone at the Caster Eye Center was very helpful. They answered all my questions and erased any doubts I had about Lasik. Dr. Caster talked me through the entire procedure which was totally painless. Dr. Caster told me he was the best and I believe him. I would recommend the Caster Eye Center to all my friends who might benefit from the Lasik procedure.
Elena Tadd – Children's Social Worker
Seeing again is like being "born again." Everything is new, bright and clear. I am starting to realize how I and most people take sight for granted.
As a secondary symptom, I no longer suffer from attacks of sneezing in the morning! My allergies have improved by about 95%. I contribute this to the fact that I no longer have irritated eyes that need constant attention.
I would also like to complement the staff...everyone was kind, courteous, helpful and enthusiastic. This was a nice experience, since one, no longer runs into such pleasant situations in today's world; especially in my field!
Michael Dituri – Steel Fabrication
I have worn glasses since the 8th grade, and always felt they were a burden. I couldn't wear hard contacts, when they came out with soft lenses I was able to tolerate them. Being very active in water sports I have to be careful not to loose lenses in the water. Also in my work there is a lot of dust, so my lenses are always dirty. After learning about Dr. Caster from my doctor and one of his patients I felt it was something for me to try. The day of the procedure I was nervous, but it was over quickly, with minimum pain. The next day my vision was amazing. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to see without glasses or contacts.
Richard Martin – Contractor
I am amazed at how easy this procedure is, the staff and of course the Dr. were very courteous and very competent. Today one day later I can see for the very first time in thirty years without glasses or contact lenses. I will recommend this surgery to my friends. It is wonderful.
Heidi Mastrogiovanni – Writer
This is the most incredible experience, and the results are a miracle.
Everyone on the staff has been so nice and caring. I very much appreciate the extra care everyone took. Dr. Caster was wonderful - very calm and soothing during the procedure.
The procedure itself was not at all painful. Post-operatively I am amazed at how comfortable I feel. I can't believe how well I can see!
No one should hesitate to have this procedure. They should go to Dr. Caster - it has been wonderful.
Don Haper – Composer
Certainly a remarkable procedure. The treatment was painless and my vision was 20/20 in less than 24 hours. Dr. Caster is skillful, personable and professional as is his staff. I would highly recommend the Caster Eye Center to anyone!
Susan Colleens – Secretary/Bookkeepter
I have heard that it takes 21 days to break a habit. It has been almost 2 months since my Lasik procedure and I am still reaching for my glasses in the morning. It is the greatest feeling not to be dependent on glasses or contacts. No more extra glasses to carry around, no more contact supplies, no more cleaning and disinfecting every night, no more hassle putting them in the morning! I am very happy with the results and the care I received form Dr. Caster and his staff. They are the best! The saying "Seeing is Believing" has really come to life for me.
Amy Boston – Associate Producer/Creative Advertising
The surgery made a significant difference in my life. Now I can see the world without glasses or contacts. (and my mother is relieved it happened without any complications!)
**The touch-up surgery was the best part and I'm glad you offer it as part of the initial fee. Before the touch-up, I was somewhat satisfied, but now I am COMPLETELY satisfied.
Thanks to your friendly staff too! (especially Stuart and of course, Dr. Caster!!!)
Deborah Dellifser – Management
Prior to my operation, I used contact lenses, reading glasses and regular glasses with accompanying sun glasses. I was very frustrated and inconvenienced everyday by needing all of the above - taking glasses off and on constantly depending on if I were reading or needing to see distance or needing sunglasses. After the surgery I only need reading glasses and my vision was corrected to 20/20. Considering all the time and money spent with optometrists and buying various types of glasses, this surgery makes a lot of sense. In addition, the short time actually in surgery with the quick recovery make this surgery appealing. Also the staff and Dr. Caster are extremely professional, thorough and caring!
Noel Bloom – Student/Athlete
The Lasik surgery has been the best thing to ever happen to me because it enabled me to get rid of my contacts which gave me so much trouble. This is very important to me because I play basketball and thus my vision without glasses is very important. I would definitely recommend this procedure to anyone. It is quick and painless, plus very successful. Dr. Caster has my utmost gratitude.
Henry Nevis – Real Estate
The operation was amazingly pain free and my recovery after 24 hours has been very easy. I would reduce the darvon to avoid grogginess.
John Shapiro – Business Owner
Unbelievable - everyone should do it, if they can.
Vashti Whitaker – Student/Nanny
Having Laser Eye Surgery here has been a wonderful experience. The entire staff was so helpful. Everyone was friendly and sincere, this is rare in a Doctor's office. The procedure was quick and painless. I was well aware of everything that was going on, which made it easier for me to relax. I greatly appreciate all of the support form the staff, and take great comfort in knowing that I was in the best hands. Thank you all very much.
Jennifer Heaton – Market Research Analyst
Less than a week has gone by since I had the Lasik procedure performed and I could not be more pleased. I'll admit to being a little nervous for a few minutes before and during the procedure - but for no reason. Everything has gone so smoothly - the procedure and the nonexistent recovery period. My vision seems to be even sharper then the 20/20 it was tested at the morning after the procedure. I love the fact that I was able to work and exercise the following day without any disruption to my schedule. Family, friends and co-workers are amazed, highly interested and a little envious. The book and video are in heavy loan rotation.
The one difficult thing about the Lasik procedure has been finding an adequate way to express how fantastic the change is. I find myself continually telling people, "it's so cool" which probably is not the optimal description coming from a 36 year old professional. There is something crisper about my vision which I am not able to articulate precisely. I'm noticing detail in the hills around my house I haven't noticed before. My eyes are already a great deal more comfortable than they were at the end of a day wearing contacts. Freeing up cabinet space in the bathroom where the contact solutions used to be was a real bonus. Strangely, receiving the license amendment saying corrective lenses are no longer required for driving was a proud moment.
Having the Lasik procedure performed is analogous to freeing myself of a defect I've been struggling with all my life.
Mark Smith –
Lasik eye surgery is absolutely unbelievable! It truly is a miracle of modern medical science.
Except for the numbing eye drops, I experienced no pain at all before, during or after the procedure. Isn't it ironic that the only part of the whole process that causes any pain at all is the anesthesia, which holds they eyelid open during surgery, and from the pressure of the microkeratome on the eye during the flap-cutting part.
I was amazed that I could see just fine as soon as I got up from the table, and the next morning my vision was even better. It has improved since then, and now I see as well without any corrective lenses as I used to with my glasses.
Even with the miraculous new devices and procedures, contemplating eye surgery could still pretty scary. But your extensive knowledge and training, your experience and consistently outstanding results, and your confidence and calming bedside manner made the whole process a snap.
I would recommend this procedure, and your office, to all my friends and family members. As a matter of fact, I already have, and as you know many of them have already had the surgery, with the same great results I had.

Cristina Elia – Financial Analyst
For 15 years, I have been in contacts and/or glasses. In the early years, I had to get insurance for my contacts because available, they helped with the calcium buildup, but didn't fully correct my vision due to my astigmatism.
With the Lasik procedure, I can finally see without the hassle of contacts. It accommodates to my active lifestyle. I fully recommend it.
Tracy Miller – Radio Talk Host
I have now witnessed two miracles - The birth of my daughter and the Lasik procedure! I have been wearing glasses or contact since I was 6 years old. In about 10 minutes, my vision was restored. I identify that as a miracle!
Thanks to Dr. Caster and your terrific staff.
Matthew Feitshans – Writer
Having been in need of glasses and contacts all my life, I was jealous of those with "perfect vision". When I heard about the Lasik procedure, I knew it was something I wanted to do. I was nervous, however, about "going blind" or having some scarring or "ghosting" to my vision after the procedure. What made me ultimately decide was listening to a man who had it done himself. He described waking up the morning after the surgery and seeing perfectly. His happiness and joy were infectious. The procedure was not painful. A slight discomfort during the operation was only about 20 seconds in duration, and the technicians were making jokes and creating a comfortable, yet professional atmosphere. Afterward, I took a pain pill, but didn't really need it. My excitement at seeing 60% better immediately following the procedure made me forget any discomfort or apprehension!
Todd Mc Kenzie – Investment Executive
Before getting the procedure done, I was reluctant to alter myself, especially my eyes, in any way. Obviously I was also unsure of the outcome as well. But now the next day I can see perfectly, and the hardest thing for me is just accepting that I have this beautiful vision and I am not wearing glasses! I have read and heard that this procedure is great, and new I am experiencing the miracle itself.
Jennifer Kantor – Auditor
My experience with Dr. Caster, and his staff was wonderful. Everyone was very helpful and patient, as well as talented and experienced.
Having worn glasses and contacts since 5th grade. I couldn't believe that it was possible to see without them. My surgery went superb, with 20/25 results in one eye after 24 hours and 20/30 results in the other. At day four, I am already at 20/20 in my right eye, and my left eye is still getting sharper ( As of today- Its only been 24 hours since my left eye surgery - since I did one on Monday and the other eye on Thursday).
This experience will change my life. It's so nice to wake up in the middle of the night and see the alarm clock, as well as being able to go swimming or do any water activity without worrying.
As far as the procedure goes - no pain, no discomfort - just 4 - 6 minutes in a chair with several qualified, wonderful doctors and staff there to walk you through this miracle of a procedure.
As would be anyone, I was nervous. But that's normal. When I felt no pain and no discomfort, I was floored. Then the next day - I drove myself to my follow up appointment and I was reading license plates easily. I couldn't believe it.
I would recommend Dr. Caster with the highest regard. His expertise, combined with his down to earth, caring personality, made me feel that I was in the best care. Thank You Dr. Caster.
Renate Taylor – Caterer
Care and procedure very good. Everyone more than caring and friendly. To be highly recommended.
Sandra Heffesse – Psychologist Ph.D.
It has been such a positive and exciting experience to have this surgery done.! The staff was so supportive and cheerful. It is incredible that such an easy procedure can be done today! It changes not only the way one looks, but also the way you see yourself in front of others and why not, the way you see yourself. This has been one of the "good" choices I made –- and I waited so long! Thank you for your professionalism Dr. Caster!
Alisa Gichon – Talent Executive
This was the easiest process I've ever gone through for such a dramatic result. Once I made the decision - referred by many other previous patients of Dr. Caster. I found the staff and entire process to be enjoyable. The procedure itself - though going in was a little scary - turned out to be quick and easy. I was well informed every step of the way. Now I have great vision and couldn't be happier. I would recommend this to any one of my friends and family. Thank you.
Max Wojcik – Computer Consultant
1. Entire procedure was painless.
2. Everyone gave as much information as you needed or requested to put you at ease.
3. No pain, discomfort after the procedure.
4. Entire staff just great.
5. Everyone and I mean everyone who wears glasses should have this procedure performed.
Doug Forsyth – Theatre Technical Director
For over 20 years I've worn glasses and for over 20 years I wished I didn't have to. As a youth I dreamed of becoming a fighter pilot, but was told I needed to have 20/20 vision which I didn't have. As I went through life almost all of the activities I enjoyed doing couldn't be enjoyed to there fullest because I always had to wear glasses or contacts. Now as an adult I am able to realize my childhood dream of having 20/20 vision. To say that I now see the world in a whole new light is an understatement. The gift I have recently received from Dr. Caster, Dr. Hoff and the entire staff at the Caster Eye Center is truly amazing. I can't thank them enough.
Jason K. Peters, O.D. – Optometrist
I can't thank you enough for restoring my vision. Thanks to your expert surgical skills I can see without the inconvenience of contacts or the discomfort of glasses. I have the utmost confidence in referring my own patients into your care for Lasik surgery. I would also like to thank Dr. James Hoff and your friendly staff for their kindness and professionalism. Thank you again for the gift of sight you have given me.
Suzanne Coskllo – Consultant
Went great from 1st walking in to post op. He's a genius and everyone at the office is great. Great focus on patients comfort and they do everything to lessen patients anxiety.
Peter W. Snow – Flight Attendant
Well, I've worn glasses for as long as I can recall. At least since the second grade. I use to fall asleep at night wishing I could wake up with perfect eyesight. I am the youngest of five in my family and the only one who wore glasses.
When I finally got contact lenses in High School I thought that was the greatest day but those too became a burden especially in the dry atmosphere of the airplane cabin.
I spoke with some colleagues of mine who spoke very highly of Dr. Caster and his staff. I have to say I agree. Everything was explained very clearly and I felt very relaxed throughout.
When I woke up this morning-the day after the procedure-my dread had come true-Perfect Eyesight! Finally N Contacts and No Glasses!
I can't recommend Dr. Caster and his staff enough! Thank you so much!
Brian Fettone – Film Editor
Words can't express the feeling I had this morning. I would recommend the procedure to anyone who has bee wearing contacts or glasses. It's like a new vision (I can't even remember if I ever saw this clearly before). I'm definitely telling everybody. Hey you want to see again, go see Dr. Caster.
Jim Lloyd – Sales Manager
Upon waking up the morning after my surgery, it was an amazing experience looking out my window and seeing the tops of the trees across the street clearer than I have ever seen them. Even with a brand new pair of glasses, when I went outside to look around, my neighbor was picking up his newspaper and asked me what I was looking at, I told him I was just checking out "my new eyes"! What an awesome experience!
Oscar Esparza – Q.C. Manager
The staff was very professional, beginning with the front staff to the surgeon himself, Dr. Caster. Everyone I spoke to prior to coming to the office was knowledgeable. Patty explained and answered most of my questions that I had.
Upon arriving to the office to see if I would qualify as a candidate, everyone greeted and acted very professionally. The staff that measured my eyes were great. The staff (Stuart) that attended me before surgery was super great. Dr. Hoff was very nice and answered most that I anticipated to know.
Dr. Caster was very nice and I would encourage anyone who is considering having Lasik done to have it done by a well trained staff and surgeon, Dr. Caster.
Alejo Galeon – Computer Scientist
The procedure was amazingly quick and painless. The staff is knowledgeable, helpful and very skilled. I strongly recommend the Caster Eye Center to anyone who is considering Lasik.
Rose Rachal – Manager
Excellent, caring staff. They make sure the patient is well informed. Excellent results!! Would pay 2 times as much for this!
Ross Markowitz – Director
This procedure was fast, painless and fast. I had such a great experience. I will recommend this to everyone who is still wearing glasses or contacts. Thank you! Thank you and again thank you. Don't let the cast burden you from the freedom of not wearing glasses. The pay off is huge.
James Barnes – Comm. Services Director
The staff was very helpful and was excellent when discussing all the procedure. The process was totally painless. My wife was particularly pleased to be included in the process all the way through. Thanks for the professionalism and great outcome.
Kenneth F. Guarino – Consultant
I can only say that viewing the operation was the most impressionable part of the procedure. The day after the viewing when I underwent the procedure, I was too excited to be afraid. I am one day post op and the thrill of waking up and not have to reach for my glasses to see is an unbelievable feeling. My vision is now 20/20, Dr. Caster and his staff are miracle workers!
Joshua Schechter – Geographer
Although technically my myopia was considered mild, at -2.25, it still demanded that I wear glasses or contacts all the time. Now, a month later, I have 20/20 (20/15) vision and couldn't be happier about it. The procedure was completely painless. The post-operative discomfort could be described as feeling like I'd left my contacts in a few hours too long, and that only last a few days. I'm glad I made the decision to undergo the Lasik procedure, and am pleased with the care provided at the Caster Eye Center. Thank you doctors Caster and Hoff, and all the staff here.
Magda L. Berliner – Wardrobe Stylist
A worthwhile investment. Just do it! Looking forward to a contact lens free life! Thank You
Tracey Hannum – Realtor
The entire experience was simple and pain free plus the most worthwhile expenditure for a priceless result. I would recommend it very highly to anyone considering laser treatment plus Dr. Caster's reputation and bedside manner makes you feel confident.
Skip Miller – Lawyer
The whole experience was a success. The initial visit and explanations were informative and complete. The staff, especially Patty, were supportive and professional. The procedure was exactly as Dr. Caster said it would be - no pain - even though I was fearful.
It was a totally positive experience, and I'm sure several of my friends will do it after I tell them.
Richard Rosin – Attorney
Wonderful staff - very pleased and an easy operation and recovery. Something special after wearing glasses for 40 years!
Eric Seedman – Exec
I never figured that putting in my contact lenses would be a bigger pain and more uncomfortable than the entire Lasik surgery! How easy is it?
The most interesting part so far has been looking around like this was the first time I could see with glasses.I have better vision, day one, than I ever was able to get with glasses or contact lenses.
The staff at Caster Eye Center was professional and comforting from the first call to schedule my initial consultation throughout the entire process. I highly recommend this for anyone that wants to wake up in the morning and see!
Jennifer Leyn – Student
I am very happy and excited about the results of the Lasik procedure. The people at the Caster Eye Center were very professional and did everything possible to answer all my questions and dispel any tears I had. I no longer have to wear glasses that fall down on my nose or fog up when I walk into an air conditioned or heated building. I no longer have to depend on contacts that irritate my eyes. The surgery itself was easy and painless. Before, during, and after the surgery someone was there to explain what was happening. If I had to do all over again I would choose to undergo the surgery in a heartbeat.
Patricia Eckard – Ice Skating Instructor
The surgery was a piece of cake! It's awesome to be able to see without glasses. The staff was Super Nice! Thanks Dr. Caster.
Lou Ann Sinicrope – Software Engineer
I was pretty severely nearsighted before I had the Lasik surgery, and after a day I am already seeing well enough to drive. Everyone at the Caster Eye Center was careful, friendly and professional. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Caster and his staff and the Lasik procedure to anyone.
Steve Floersheim – CPA
I have had no discomfort at all. The laser causes no pain. It was quick and I could see right after I stood up. I have not seen since I was 8 years old. I am currently 48. Also, absolutely no pain after the surgery.
Linda Butler – Executive Secretary
There was no pain after wearing glasses for reading and driving for 30 years, it is so great to be rid of them. I would recommend Dr. Caster to anyone tired of wearing glasses.
Oh! I told my husband if I'd known what he really looked like I'd have gotten rid of him a long time ago. HA!
Tim Anast – Real Estate Sales
Absolutely incredible! Completely painless, terrific, friendly and knowledgeable staff. Would highly recommend the Caster Eye Center to everyone.
Dorian Khouri – Banker
Amazing! I was very concerned about the procedure. Dr. Caster and the gang made me feel very comfortable. I used to see 20/200 now 20/15 with both eyes. I would recommend it to anybody. Go for it, don't be afraid.
Sally Kawana – Consultant
Dr. Caster and his team of doctors were great. I couldn't believe how easy and painless the entire process was. I would recommend the procedure to anyone who wears glasses or contact lenses. I just wanted to say thanks again to everyone at the Caster Eye Center.
Hugh H. Hedrick – Ford Motor Company
I think that anyone who is eligible for Lasik and doesn't get it is insane. I never dreamed that after 29 years of glasses that I could throw them away. I can see. Not with glasses, but with my own eyes. Oh! What a feeling. Dr. Caster, you and your crew are awesome.
Keith Brown – Golf Course Management
Great experience throughout! The entire team is super and my eyesight is 20/20 less than 24 hours later. What more could I ask for? I hope to send more nearsighted golfer your way. Thanks again
Jerry Gepner – Broadcast Executive
After 40 years f glasses, to wake up this morning and be able to see without groping on the nightstand. A miracle! The procedure was painless and the staff here is superb. I cannot imagine the impact this will have on my life, although I am sure it will be profound, my deepest gratitude and thanks to Dr. Caster and everyone here.
Gaurau Datta – Student
THANK YOU!!! This is amazing. I have gone through my entire life dependent on THICK glasses and contact lenses. I don't have to worry about my eyesight anymore! I can see just as well as everyone else now. You and your staff have made me feel very comfortable.
Raul Ramirez – Personal Assistant
My experience here was awesome! Everyone was more than professional and courteous. The service and attention I received was exceptional. I am so happy to be able to see perfectly the very next day. There are few places I have been to where I really feel that I got to know each and every person on the staff. Everyone is so gentle and kind!! I will always remember my experience. Thank god for Dr. Caster and his staff. I feel blessed to have encountered so many nice people.
Franny Rennie – Mom
To all the staff at Caster Eye Center
Thank you for the most fabulous experience possible! Eyesight is an incredible gift that is not fully realized by those with god given perfect eyesight. The wonders of medicine are a modern miracle. Thank you for changing my life! My husband is even better looking than I thought!
Kristen Dehn –
It's the day after the procedure and I feel great. I can see really well. Thanks so much.
Earl K. Landau – Physician
Thanks Caster Guys!! (and Gals)! A real professional team. Caring, Nice and everything else Great. Thanks for cleaning my vision- and also thanks for my sons' great vision. I will highly recommend you all to everyone!
Laura Sevier – Entertainment
This experience is amazing. To be able to see 20/20 the next morning is almost beyond comprehension. The "surgery" itself was not painful (except for removing the tape holding my eyes open) but rather very interesting. I can't recommend this strongly enough to people w/ vision problems. Everyone here was very nice and I've already convinced my husband to come in for a consultation.
Cheryl Friedman – Attorney
The procedure was much easier than I had anticipated. I have very little tolerance for pain and I felt absolutely no pain. Dr. Caster was calming and the staff was terrific. I have no complaints at all and am very satisfied.
Al Cafaro – Record Executive
I had heard about corrective eye procedures for years, and finally decided to be treated due to the fact so many others had greatly recommended Dr. Caster. Appointments for testing were quick and painless, the staff was sweet and the procedure was short-lived. I could see better instantaneously, and the next day I drove myself into the office for a follow up visit. "Incredible" and strongly recommended.
Jennifer Mills – SBA Loans/Sales
Dear Dr. Caster and Staff-
I am very pleased with the whole process- I woke up this morning and could see the small alarm clock from across the room. I am highly amazed- it did not hurt. The whole procedure in the operating room only took 8 minutes (less than 1 minute each eye)! I am looking forward to a life without contacts or glasses- Thanks to the skills of Dr. Caster and the help of his friendly and supportive staff. I would recommend this procedure (Lasik) to anyone.
Amanda McDaniel – Singer
WOW! It's hard to put into words the life-changing event that happens once you step into the Caster Eye Center. The friendliness of the entire staff welcomes you right away. They answer all your questions thoroughly and take time to go beyond as well. Dr. Caster's expertise guides the crew. He explains everything going on once "under the laser". This put me at ease. I am extremely appreciative to everyone at Caster Eye Center who made this a positive experience! I'm a happy patient!
Mark Norry – Stuntman
From the first conversation I had with Patricia here at the Eye Center, I felt comfortable entrusting my eyes to Dr. Caster and his staff. One month ago I had the Lasik procedure on both eyes and today I tested at 20/10 with both eyes. I had prepared myself for fluctuations/deviations but have had none as of yet; only a great freeing experience. For this I am thankful.
Diane Brown – Regional Manager
This was truly a miracle. I can't remember being so free of worrying whether my contact will pop out or seeing so well for 20 years. Dr. Caster and his staff were wonderful. Thank you very much for everything.
Theresa Aycock – Advertising
I feel like I'm 17 yrs old again. That's how long it's been since I wore glasses or contacts. This morning when I woke up I could see all the detail in my garden. Every leaf and flower. It's a great sense of freedom to be able to see and leave the house without contacts or glasses. Great job guys! Thanks.
Maria Saenz – Medical Assistant
I would like to thank Dr. Caster for this miracle he has accomplished. It truly is the best decision you could ever make. Dr. Caster's caring, professional and excellent staff really help make this experience worthwhile. I was very nearsighted and had very little astigmatism. I wouldn't be able to drive, read, or even look at people's faces. I would get bad headaches and eyestrains. I feel like I was in my own world. There was nothing I could do to stop this but rely on my glasses or contact lenses. Now I am 20/20 and my weak left eye is 20/15. I can rely on myself now. The way I always wanted it to be since I was 9 years old.
Leslie Casey – Receptionist
To Dr. Caster and staff
Thank you for the new life that you gave me. It feels so good to wake up in the morning and see the alarm clock. I traveled form New York because I wanted to go to the best doctor. Believe me in my eyes you are the best. I truly want to thank you.
Martin Fine – Attorney
It's a miracle to wake up and see what's going on. The experience was quick and painless. Everybody on the staff treated me so well and helped me to relax. Thanks!
Jack Taylor – Retired
What a feeling! No after thoughts but positive. The discomfort was minor. This is the second day and I see very clearly. No more contacts.
John Luciano – Celebrity Journalist
As a journalist, research is an important and frequent part of my work. Prior to having the procedure, I spent countless hours researching my options and the various doctors in my area. My research all pointed to one place- "Dr. Andrew Caster." Just 24 hours after my procedure, I have 20/20 vision. This has been the best $5,000 I've ever spent. I'm already telling my eyeglass-wearing friends to rush right in to the "Caster Eye Center!" I'm forever grateful. Thank You
Chris Roberts – Investment Banker
I have been researching the Lasik Procedure for the past Two years. I feel that my extent of research has been extensive. Dr. Caster was always the doctor that everyone recommended. His credentials are impressive and the number of operations that he has performed aided me in my choice. Another reason I chose Dr. Caster was the staff. They were always professional and they did not make me feel pressured into choosing Dr. Caster as some of the other laser eye surgeon's offices had.
Sandi Donehue – House Mom
I flew all the way from Melbourne, Australia to have my vision corrected from Dr. Caster. After years of wearing contact lenses this procedure is truly a miracle and was well worth the 17-hour flight! The staff here is exceptional and everyone here made the experience wonderful. I would highly recommend anyone who is considering their vision to be corrected to do it!
Cathy Braffet – Designer
This morning I woke up and saw the most beautiful day of my life! This is the most miraculous change I have ever experienced! While waiting for my surgery I was so extremely nervous and wanted to cry. The staff, along with Rob my fiancé, was sooo supportive, personal and caring! For the stereo type Los Angeles has with people, places, and procedures… Caster Eye Center has a sense of Home. A personal environment- the people seem very real, down to earth and really care! This was sooo much appreciated when I having this incredible life experience! Thank you staff and Dr. Caster!
Larry Mayer – Software Consultant
I work in the technology biz, so I feel pretty jaded about most so-called "technological breakthroughs". But I am in genuine awe of what Dr. Caster and his staff can do. Yesterday I was wearing glasses- today I woke up with 20/20 vision in both eyes. I feel great; my eyes feel great. My kids had lots of fun testing what I could see this morning.
I'd also like to say that I have never met a friendlier, more personable, or better-trained group of folks than the staff here. Stuart, Krista, Dr. Slivar, and everyone I met (including Dr Caster himself) couldn't have been any nicer and showed great expertise in their care of me. What a great operation in both senses of the word)! Thanks!
Sherin Dennis – Retired RN
Words cannot explain how wonderful this procedure is. I have worn glasses and contact lenses for 44 years. Immediately after the Lasik procedure I could read the numbers on the wall clock. It was amazing. I will tell everyone I know about Dr. Caster and his wonderful, helpful staff. I have a new lease on life. Thank you so much.
Alicia Lavanchy – Teacher's Assistant
It's a great feeling to be able to see without glasses or contact lenses. Because I elected to have the monovision procedure I can see far and I'm also able to read. I had the surgery the same day my daughter Paula did. We were really scared, almost to the point of not going through with it, but we did. We are both delighted with the results. I would call it "A MIRACLE"! If you are a good candidate DO IT!
Margie Aguirre – Underwriter
What can I say except "WOW"! It's unbelievable that in a matter of minutes your vision is restored. I was a -7.00 with glasses and now I can see! The process is painless but the results are truly a miracle. My thanks to Dr. Caster and his staff for their sincere care.
Tom Weary – Portfolio Manager
Daniel Sebag – Real Estate Investor
After having an overcorrected RK surgery Dr. Caster was able to correct my vision, which 2 other doctors couldn't do. Thanks for a great job. Well done.
Kit Quach – Q.C. Specialist
Thank you Dr. Caster for what I consider to be a miracle. I've been wearing glasses for more than 20 years. Eyeglasses never fit me well because my head is too wide. Even those super thin glasses were always too heavy and I would go through life with a constant headache. Now I'm free of my glasses and contact lenses too. The pressure that glasses put on my head is now gone! Thanks again for freeing me from the constraints imposed by glasses and contact lenses.
Kim Ciliberto – Creative Consultant
Less than 24 hours after surgery I can see perfectly! I can honestly say the most painful part of the procedure is pulling the tape off the nighttime goggles. After over 25 years of glasses and/or contacts it's going to be wonderful to see the clock every morning, swim under water, etc. Thank you to everyone at Caster Eye Center- The entire staff was friendly and informative.
Gary Nudell – Banker
For me, having the Lasik surgery was one of the events in life that has a true sense of awe and wonderment. Dr. Caster and his staff are terrific.
Vivian Alonso – Pines - Advertising
I can't believe it! I can see! I needed 2 xanax to get through it, but boy am I glad I did it even though I was nervous. Everyone was very gentle and encouraging. It's a miracle.
Phoebe Attia – Biochemistry/ Cell Biology
First of all, YEAH!
I am truly amazed at how easy and pain-free the entire procedure was yesterday. Today everything is so clear and I can see 20/20 according to Dr. Caster. I am very happy and I would recommend him to anybody! I felt that I was in good hands, especially since my own optometrist went to Dr. Caster to do this, and by the way is happy too. I'm thankful for Dr. Levins recommending Dr. Caster to me and for Dr. Caster's expertise! This is a miracle that I have been praying to God to answer and he has! It is beyond my expectations! The staff is great too! (Very professional!) The world is so beautiful; I can see textures I couldn't discern even with contacts! Praise God!! Thank you Caster Eye Center!! God bless all of you!
Marilee Tiedemann – VP- Retail Store
The day of my surgery, I was anxiously apprehensive. I watched the surgery before mine. The patient was so calm and didn't move. I was worried I would move and they would have to keep me held down! One of the assistants just told me to keep relaxed and BREATHE! So I tried to have an out of body experience when I went to lie down and await my new vision. After surgery I could immediately see a difference. I went home and slept for six hours! I did wake up in intervals and put my natural tears in my eyes, as they did feel scratchy. That night I watched television and could see details and everything. I was amazed at how well I could see already. I was driving my husband crazy saying; "I can see that, can't you?" and "I can read that smallest print, can you?" He had enough of me! This morning I woke up with crystal clear vision. There wasn't any scratchy of dry feeling to the eye anymore. I drove myself to my post-op appointment and have tested at 20/20 vision in both eyes. I can't wait to go to Hawaii in November without having to drag all my solutions, lenses and eyeglasses! Mihalo!
Paula Lavanchy – Student
When I came in for my pre-checkup (1 day before surgery), I was very worried and scared. I had lots of questions and talked to a few of Dr. Caster's patients who had already had the surgery. My biggest concern was that Monday was my surgery and Friday I was leaving on a 2-week vacation to Israel. Although I was a little hesitant, I still went ahead with surgery and I'm so happy that I did. The procedure was painless, only some discomfort. Today, Tuesday I see perfectly fine, a part of me still thinks I'm wearing my contacts. It's too good to be true. It's so amazing how a procedure that took less than 10 minutes can change your life forever.
P.J. Lutz – College Administrator
What can I say except this is the best! I've worn glasses since I was 8 years old and now, 20 years later; I'm free of them. Thanks!
Maryellen Howe – Makeup artist
Fabulous! I can see!!! Shhh… don't tell my makeup clients! I was trying to pull off that "Picasso" style of makeup. No Pain Success overnight Thank you Dr. Caster, Dr. Hoff, Dr. Slivar and all the staff. You made it so simple.
Barbara Bernstein – Marriage and Family Therapist
This is an amazing process. Having worn glasses (and contacts) for nearsightedness with a prescription of -10, I can now drive without visual aids. Totally painless too. Thank you Dr. Caster!
Monika Rogasch – Telephone Installer
Dr. Caster and I agreed on the monovision procedure, so I wouldn't need reading glasses. I read the paper this morning (1 day after) and could see 20/20 without glasses for the first time in forever. The surgery was nothing, and I couldn't be happier or more satisfied.
Colette Huby – R.N.
I had heard such great reports about Dr. Caster and his team, that I was not really nervous when I had made the decision to have Lasik. Nevertheless his whole team really worked together to make me feel calm and reassured throughout the entire process.
Drs. Caster and Hoff both explained the procedure, and testing in great detail, and were never tired of answering my questions. All the other staff- receptionist, and technicians were also patient and caring which made such a difference. To wake up after a brief few hours of sleep and to be able to see perfectly without glasses was truly exhilarating. Thank you again so much to Dr. Caster and his entire team of committed and caring assistants.
Cynthia De Nuno – Writer
Many acquaintances of mine said that they found the concept of laser eye surgery very frightening. I told them that I wasn't very frightened before the surgery and can now say that I wasn't fearful during or after the surgery! All the people who I encountered who work here are very professional and caring, so any misgivings I felt vanished. Dr. Caster's devotion to this one procedure, along with his extensive staff support, gave me a "good hands feeling" from day 1!! Having my vision improved so naturally (no glasses or contacts needed) is very freeing. I am thankful for an experience that will make my world just a little easier, a little better due to this surgery, but also due to encountering such nice professionals.
Joe DiGiandomenico – Personal Trainer
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! Everyone at the Caster Eye Center has been wonderful and extremely knowledgeable. I was very well taken care of. And, WOW, I can see.
Bob Beemer – Sound Engineer
Perfect Results! The experience was everything it was advertised to be from infomercial to follow-up visit. A procedure that eventually must be available to every person on earth. Very little pain and very quick recovery. Great Staff.
Rica Walz – Actor
I had terrible vision and relied on contact lenses for years. Thanks to Dr. Caster's and staff I have my sight back. (20/20 the very next day!!) I was very nervous and everyone here made me feel extremely comfortable and the procedure was quick and PAINLESS! Thank you so much Dr. Caster!
Tee Ming Ooi – Mother
My eyesight is very precious to me so when I decided to undergo the Lasik procedure, I chose the best surgeon- Dr. Caster. Everyone I encountered in the office has been very reassuring and pleasant. I'm very happy with the results of the surgery and would recommend Dr. Caster's expertise and staff to anyone contemplating the Lasik procedure. Many thanks for making my experience a very positive one.
Charla Mandzak – Mom
Dear Dr. Caster, Dr. Hoff, Roman, and all the gracious girls of the desk and back office: Thank you for the smooth ride! Everyone is so professional and friendly. It really was a piece of cake! I was most excited that I was able to drive myself here the next day. I've had no discomfort at all- not even any gritty sensation. Wearing contacts for 30 years was more uncomfortable than Lasik! Thank you all!
Kathy Kantro – Foreign Exchange Specialist
Thank you! Thank you!
I feel liberated and euphoric. Words can't describe my gratitude. Everyone was helpful and made me feel they were as happy for me as I was. I have already called all my friends and find it hard to believe anyone would not rush to have this procedure done. Also, NO pain!!! Again many thanks.
David Garcia – City Maintenance Worker
Dr. Caster and staff,
I always told myself, if someday I could have perfect vision I would do something about mine. I can finally see without those things on my face. Dr. Caster and the whole staff are great. If anyone is thinking about the procedure, Go For It. No pain.
Again Thank You
Michael Bruno – Actor/sales associate
Thank you so very much. For the first time in my life I have freedom from contacts and glasses. Your staff is very cheerful and very helpful. I will recommend you to everyone I meet who wears glasses or contacts. Doctor Caster, you are an Angel on Earth.
P.S. I once was lost
But now I'm found
BUT NOW I SEE
Mark Wolfram – Composer
I came in to the Caster Eye Center expecting to be able to see "pretty well" -after day one I was 20/25- WOW! The staff is friendly and fantastic -it's hard to find good help- because Dr. Caster GOT IT ALL! Seriously, I couldn't be happier!
Thanks Dr. Caster and staff!
Pat Hurley – Minister
Before my surgery, I had to wear both contact lenses and glasses at the same time. With such a heavy prescription, I had some serious concerns as to whether or not Lasik would help. Suffice it to say, it worked!! The day after surgery, I was able to drive without the assistance of corrective lenses of any kind. Dr. Caster and his competent and friendly staff did a fantastic job!
Jeanne Elfant Festa – Mom-actress-wife
Unbelievable! I can see the individual leaves in the trees, street signs, and birds flying. Remarkable! It's the best gift! Thank you! I can't believe these are my eyes! Amazing!
Daniel Pavia – Art Director
I had the best experience and results with this office. It's the "day after" and I keep forgetting I don't have glasses on! I'm still not sure I believe the results.
Alfredo Arce – Accountant
The results are lots better that what I was expecting. It's wonderful to be able to drive, play sports, read, etc. without glasses. I think Dr. Caster is doing a tremendous job. Thanks to all the wonderful people who work at the Caster Eye Center. This is Great!
Diane Gutterud – Producer-Television
The procedure was so easy. I was amazed how quickly the surgery went. The staff was wonderful!

Procedure was easy, painless and successful. I was anxious beforehand. I'm very glad I did it.
Janice Broman – Secretary
The office staff is very personable, make you feel comfortable- they are like family. The doctors are very thorough, very extensive in checking your eyes. Dr. Caster is the greatest! I will recommend Dr. Caster to all my friends- I feel great and so much better about myself.
Glenn Turner – Attorney
Easy and painless with great results. Nothing more needs to be said. These people do it right. Good Luck
Bradford Karns –
Procedure was terrific- simple, painless, and incredible results. Most importantly, Dr. Caster and all of the staff were thoughtful, thorough, approachable, and completely enjoyable. Those attributes combined with their capability make this experience all the more impacting on my life. I'm even going to get a pooh bear of my own.
Mark Burg – Film Producer
Brenda Whaley –
We all received first rate treatment from both Dr. Caster and his super-friendly staff. Thank you for freeing us from the hassle and inconvenience of glasses and contacts!
Kristin Carter – Financial Consultant
The morning after…
I feel like I woke up with my contacts in, only I'll never have to deal with them again. The hardest part of this procedure was signing all the release forms. I will highly recommend Dr. Caster and his staff to all my friends and family back in Florida.
William Whaley – Transportation
I'd like to praise your entire staff. They were thorough professional and helpful throughout. The experience was easy. No pain only mild dryness fixed by drops. My sincere thanks to all.
Tracy Muresan – Office Manager
The surgery went very well. There was no pain or discomfort. I was able to see an immediate difference after the procedure. Dr. Caster and the staff were very kind and comforting during this. I would recommend it to anyone who needs glasses or contacts.
Carolyn Maskin – Producer
This was truly an unbelievable experience. Everyone at the Caster Eye Center is so friendly, so helpful and so reassuring. All of my questions were patiently answered and I never felt rushed. This was the easiest experience I have ever been through and I would definitely recommend Dr. Caster and his team to anyone considering laser eye surgery. I feel great!!
Julie Kershenbaum – Advertising Sales
An easy and pleasurable experience all around! The staff is so helpful and very educated and easily addressed my questions and concerns. I would recommend to anyone considering, who is a candidate. What an exciting change to my life! Thank you to the Caster Eye Center and the people for the excellent service and treatment!
Oren Lieber – Sales/Marketing
The procedure really felt like nothing. The staff was very friendly and professional. They make you feel safe at all times. I would recommend the procedure to anyone thinking about it.
Debra Carr – Attorney
The procedure was easy and straightforward. I felt absolutely no pain during or after the procedure. I was able to drive myself to my appointment the next morning. I am particularly thrilled because I had RK about 8 years ago and still needed correction. I absolutely recommend this procedure to anyone who wants to throw away his or her glasses- permanently.
Teddy Steiger – General Operations Mgr.
I've worn glasses for over 40 yrs. - The thought that my eyes could ever be corrected was "never". A co-worker had the procedure and told me about it. Now that it was possible, I was afraid! But the surgery was a whiz, no pain and so quick. My many thanks to the entire staff of the Eye Center for a new life! Thanks!
Won Kim – Librarian
I feel great! I appreciate Dr. Caster and all staff. Thank you very much again. I never imagined this before.
Jeff Harris – Musician
Absolutely wonderful! I see better now than I ever did with contacts or glasses. Hats off!
Emily Ruddo – Software Sales
Thank you so much for correcting my vision. The correction has been fabulous and everyone at the Caster Eye Center has been wonderful! I also had knee surgery one week before the laser surgery and found absolutely no problems. My vision is now excellent. Thank you so much Dr. Caster!!
Robert Akhavan – R.E. Developer
I have had a most wonderful experience with the staff in Dr. Caster's office. It has been a complete, straight forward, and informative process. At no time I have felt any pressure in proceeding with the procedure. The staff attitude has been wonderful and warm. I strongly recommend Dr. Caster.
Skip Walton – Attorney
The only word that describes my experience with Dr. Caster and his staff is wonderful! From beginning to end, each step of the journey was a pleasant and easy event. Everything I had heard about Dr. Caster was not only true but also understated. He's the best!
Wendy Tsien – Analyst
This is the most unbelievable experience but I'm so glad I did it and I did it with Dr. Caster. I'm one of the high risk profile category patients because if the combination
(1) High degree of nearsightedness and astigmatism
(2) Thin corneas
(3) Large pupils
In fact, on my right eye, my operation required the special Visx machine. Dr. Caster was very competent and conscientious. The operation is no pain (No Kidding!) Just the day after, I can see 20/25. This is after 30 years of glasses and contacts. I would highly recommend this.
Chris Carlisle – Television Marketing
It was a life changing experience. I haven't been able to see my clock radio without my glasses for 20 years, and now it is crystal clear. The staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. I highly recommend The Caster Eye Center to anyone who wants to SEE normally again.
Mira Oh – Professor
To all at the Caster Eye Center,
It was amazing that I could see everything and drive a car the next morning. I didn't feel any pain at all and I could even feel that I'm going to be fine right after the operation. I was scared of course before the operation. However, every worker in the Caster Eye Center gave me the confidence that I'll be fine. I trusted them, in particular, Dr. Caster. I really appreciate him. Now I'm back to my desired, dreamt life. I will enjoy bright life and appreciate every minute of life without depending on glasses or lenses. How FREE I am! Thanks.
Jennifer Yuan – Public Relations
The procedure is amazing! Immediately afterwards my vision improved greatly and the next morning I was reading license plates all the way to work. Having been born with astigmatism, this is truly a miracle.
Chuck Saftler – VP Programming, Fox Cable Networks
Dear Dr. Caster,
It is a miracle! Within 24 hours 20/20 vision with no pain or discomfort. I only wish I had committed to this a year earlier! All my thanks.
Rich Goldsberry – Financial Advisor
I put it off because of the fear. Even the thought of wearing contacts would make me ill! To have a procedure was almost unthinkable. For whatever reasons I did it! I couldn't be more pleased & wish I had done it sooner.
Katy Fawbush – Personal Trainer
I would recommend this procedure to anyone. I'm so happy and it was so easy!
Michelle Gropper – TV News Anchor
What a breeze! Thank you Dr. Caster and staff for your professionalism and thank you for my new perfect eyesight. It took 2 months of "corneal rehab" before I could have the procedure but the wait was well worth it. Thanks again!
Colleen Craig – Writer
Since the age of 8 I have depended on glasses or contact lenses. My terrible vision has always been something of a joke among friends and something I was known by. In 24 hours, this has all changed! For the first time in35 years I woke to see the world and the experience was thrilling. This gift of sight is something I will never take for granted; it is as miraculous to me as the birth of my daughter. My association with the Caster Eye Center was a pleasure: the staff is extremely cordial, reassuring, empathic and highly professional. The surgery itself was painless. And Dr. Caster is a wonder worker. I am extraordinarily grateful.
Lana Speer – Sales
I've had to wear contact lenses for 20 years. It got to the point where I couldn't wear them any longer due to drying eyes. I found out about Dr. Caster through a friend, and made an appointment. Upon arrival, I was treated like a "queen", given individual and personal service. For some reason, I was expecting to be passed around to different people- but that didn't happen. The friendliness and explanation before and after the procedure was great! And the staff, what can I say, They're great. They really seem to enjoy helping people. I'm a new person, enjoying my freedom and would recommend this easy procedure to anyone.
Robert Ramsey – Creative Director
The procedure performed by Dr. Caster and his staff went perfectly. It was extremely quick and efficient. Yet I felt comfortable at every moment. The staff was courteous, friendly, accommodating and very informative. I would recommend the procedure to anyone. My sight went from 20/200 to 20/20 in days. Incredible! If I had to do it all over again I would. But I don't!!
Scott Schultz – Attorney
The experience and the results were excellent. The staff answered all questions and made the experience very comfortable. The morning after, clear vision for the 1st time in15 years! I will recommend this experience to anyone.
Caldwell Camero – Law Student
Worth every penny. I wish I had done it earlier.
Harry Tharp – Manager
It is difficult to tell you how amazing this seems if you have not worn glasses all your life. No pain, no unpleasant side effects, and 20/20 vision the very next day. Add to that the fact that the entire staff was extremely attentive and displayed marvelous attitudes and I can't imagine how the experience could be improved. My heart felt thanks to all of you!
Efren and Maybeline Duarte – Web Developer
We were so thrilled to have made the right decision in getting the Lasik procedure here at the Caster Eye Center. We are even more excited about the results that we are able to see very clearly without the restraints of glasses or contact lenses. And the really best part is how comfortable we felt with the staff, from the receptionists to the doctors. They made us feel very confident that we made the right decision. Thank you again for the excellent for the excellent service and gentle care given to us.
Gregory Scott Reeves – Actor
I can't tell you how overwhelmingly overjoyed I was when I woke up the next morning! You are truly a blessing from God! I'm finally free!! Can't thank you enough!!
Gary Fleck – Owner Chefwear, Inc.
I am extremely pleased with the results of my procedure. I felt absolutely no pain and it went very quickly. I feel that the office staff's knowledge also helped me feel very comfortable and relaxed throughout the process. I am now seeing 20/15 in my left eye and 20/20 in my right and am thrilled that I never need contacts or glasses again for driving. I would tell anyone who is considering this procedure that it is well worth it and that Dr. caster is the man for the job! Thanks again!!
Tom Grimm –
Even easier than I thought… zero pain, zero discomfort and perfect results. My friends drove me home after the surgery and asked if I wanted to rest for awhile… I said forget that, let's celebrate! I think sushi and cocktails are a perfectly appropriate post-op treatment. I'm glad I decided to do it, and that I took advantage of all the info available on Lasik and Dr. Caster beforehand, so I knew what to expect. And I was impressed by the great service before, during, and after. Thanks!
Mari McAlister – Mother
It's truly incredible that within a few minutes I could go from blurred vision to great vision. I just can't get over how amazing it is. I didn't quite believe people when they told me it would be painless. But they were so right. I never even had any discomfort. But I wish someone had told me not to even look at the disclosure papers. I was such a complete wreck when I read them that I actually took an hour to sign my name. I finally signed them after calling a friend who also had the procedure. Thank you Dr. Caster for giving me perfect vision! I feel so lucky that you are my doctor. And thank you Dr. Hoff for your patience when I was such a nervous wreck for the pre-op appointment. And thank you to every staff member for being nice explaining everything so perfectly.
Tawnia DeVitre – Homemaker
It's amazing waking up in the morning and being able to see. The procedure was much easier than I had imagined. Dr. Caster and his staff were very friendly and helpful throughout the entire process. Much thanks to everyone involved!
Ben Plotkin – Student
It's completely amazing. The procedure was so quick and painless and the results just miraculous. I can see perfectly and I feel great! It was a pleasure to come here, everyone is so professional and the attention to every detail fantastic. Thank you so much for giving me my sight!
Marcy Toscher – Interior Designer
I can finally see as well as my clients do, without the embarrassment of struggling with my glasses and contacts. One day post-op I am experiencing the nuances of color and texture for the first time! I feel I need to go back and re-design all of the work I did without the benefit of perfect natural vision. Kudos to Dr. Caster, Hoff, and Slivar for outstanding professionalism and skill. I am "re-born"!
Ed Zutler – Executive
The procedure was simple and recovery rapid- from the patient perspective. The staff was positive, cheerful and efficient. I would recommend the procedure to friends and associates.
Marc Frydman – Movie Producer
I thought the whole process was extremely smooth, straightforwardly explained and executed in an atmosphere that is relaxing and reassuring. It is a very good concept in my opinion to give the patient a step-by step explanation of the procedure. All in all, it was an exciting and painless experience. And getting the new vision changes your life even when, like me, you have a mild prescription, not needing your glasses at all.. A pure bliss!! Thank you to the whole team.
Martha Ybarra – Library Assistant
I always wanted to have this done but kept putting it off. Now I'm glad I finally had it done- no more problems with contacts and having to carry all the supplies on vacations. From the time I had it done I have not had any problems (2nd day) and I'm looking forward to enjoying life without contacts or sometimes glasses. I should have had it done sooner.
Mimi James – VP at VH-1
This was amazing-my life was already perfect, but now it's getting even better! Everyone here was incredible and answered all of my questions. I'd recommend this to anybody. Thanks so much for making me see!
Keturah Anderson – Administrative
I've been waiting years for technology to advance to this point. This is my second day without corrective lenses and I already feel more free and unencumbered by glasses and lenses. Thank you Dr. Caster and staff for answering all of my many questions honestly and thoroughly. You made me feel confident in my decision and fearless of the Lasik procedure. I was very apprehensive as anyone should be, but this is definitely one of the best decisions I have ever made. Thank you for better vision and for being so supportive.
Guy Trimarchi – Social Worker
This has been one of the most wonderful things to happen to me. It has been a dream of mine to never have to wear glasses and have the freedom to do what I want without worrying about breaking or losing my glasses. The staff here is wonderful and made me feel totally confident in the doctor and the staff. Thanks
Jennifer Milmore – Actress
Wow! This is amazing and unbelievable at the same time. I had the surgery yesterday at 4pm and am seeing 20/20 today at 9:30am. I can't recommend it enough. The entire staff is incredibly friendly and informative and Dr. Caster is so quick it's amazing. I am so happy right now I can't stand it! Thank you Thank you Thank you!
Michelle Karan – Director of Sales
This has been the best experience ever. To be able to see colors and things vividly, I highly recommend the Caster Eye Center to everyone. The staff was very friendly.
Darrell Lindgren – VP Finance
To wake up and see clearly for the first time in 30+ years is a true gift! The staff at the Caster Eye Center was terrific and there is no exact that the center qualifies as "LA's Best"! My only regret is that I waited as long. Thanks to a great staff and to Dr. Caster for a whole new look at the world!
Shelley Littleton – Public Relations
Words cannot describe the joy I felt this morning when I woke up removed my goggles and could see my 2 doggies asleep at the end of the bed. Thank you for the gift of freedom from contacts and glasses. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
Dennis Winston – Lawyer
This is the morning after my surgery. It is fantastic. In one sense, my vision experience is not so remarkable; I see just as I could with glasses or contacts. The difference is: I'm not wearing contacts to be able to see. No pain, no discomfort. Dr. Caster is as good as advertised.
Culbert Lu – Law Student
Anything I could say about this procedure and the care of Dr. Caster and his staff would be trite and would not properly do justice to what I have (and will continue to) experienced. I have had to wear glasses since age 9, and was unable to wear contact lenses for any extended period of time due to the over-sensitivity of my eyes. Now, thanks to Dr. Caster I no longer have to worry about any of that. No more switching from glasses to contacts just to play basketball, only to have to switch back in a couple of hours due to irritation. No more waking up in the morning and having to find my glasses just to see the alarm clock. No more wiping off my glasses every few minutes when it's raining out. Simply put no more worrying about how I'm going to see.
LaTanya Newt – Manager
Everyone here at the Caster Eye Center was great! Professional at all times, yet very friendly. Prior to my surgery I'd heard all types of things about pressure and I little discomfort and yada, yada, yada, but I experienced none of that. Those are some damn good numbing drops they use! I just want to thank Dr. Caster, Dr. Hoff, Dr. Slivar, Patricia and the rest of the staff for their contribution to the restoral of my 20/20 which I haven't had since I was 9 and for their extreme kindness. Thanks you guys and gals!
Melanie Haake – Grad Student
As someone with a very active lifestyle, glasses have never been a practical solution for correcting my vision. Although contact lenses were a much better option, they were always a hassle: needing to bring a case and cleaning solution if I spent the night away from home, and in the last couple of months before I had Lasik surgery, they just became too bothersome. Now, with my "new eyes" I feel like a different person. It's as if a weight has been lifted. No more worrying about being "prepared" if I go out of town or decide to spend the night out. I still can't believe it, One day after the surgery I can legally drive without corrective lenses. I'm so excited and happy my face hurts from smiling!!
Barbara Strommen – Nurse Practitioner
I have been myopic and worn glasses since I was 6 years old-and today, 24 hours later, I was given clearance to drive a car without corrective lenses! The five minute procedure was without surprises and totally painless. I was offered pain medication after the procedure and elected not to take it-I never even took Tylenol. I can honestly say that any day of my 30+ years of hard contact lens wearing was MUCH more irritating to my eyes than the Lasik procedure. I appreciate and gratefully acknowledge every staff member for the part they played in my journey to healed vision. The front desk staff, always cheerful and efficient. The coordinator, friendly, encouraging and informative; the physicians and technicians that gave thorough, refractory exams; Stuart, with just the right amount of lightheartedness minutes prior to the procedure; the surgical assistants who assured me I wasn't too old for the Pooh Bear-and especially Dr. Caster! Thank you Dr. Caster for your gifted surgical expertise and your calm and gentle spirit. I feel so blessed to live in a time when this amazing technology is available.
Larry Morris – Accountant
The only way to express my feelings of sheer wonder is to quote someone else: "If I have to explain how I feel, you will not understand"…My joy runs that deep. Thank you Thank you Thank you
Philip Sardo – Futures Trader
Dear Dr. Caster,
I would like to thank you and your staff for all you have done for me. I have been wearing corrective lenses since I was twelve years old. You have made this an amazing reality, one that I never expected to be so simple, quick and painless! You will be highly recommended to all my family and friends. Thanks again
Steven Faughn – Real Estate Appraiser
It's like a miracle. One day I couldn't function without my glasses and 15 minutes after the procedure I was able to read street signs and watch TV glasses free. The next day it was as if nothing had been done to my eyes. They felt as normal as they ever have. I am very pleased with the Caster Eye Center and highly recommend this procedure to anyone who hates wearing glasses.
Brian Schwartz – Loan Originator
The procedure was comfortable and pain free. In fact I watched the World Series 2 hours after the procedure. The staff is excellent and I will not hesitate to refer Dr. Caster.
Rey Garcia – Printer
I knew 2 years that I wanted to get my eyes "fixed". I set up a liquid CD account and when I was ready I went through the Internet and found 5 places. I read the info and interviewed 3 doctors and settled on Dr. Caster because I felt "Como en Casa" (Like at home) with everybody on the staff. The day of the procedure I was a nervous wreck. But once the operation began I was totally relaxed and I felt the confidence around me. All day today I have been telling my co-workers and vendors, anybody that would listen to me about my new "Eyes". My only regret is that I couldn't do this years ago. Thanks to everyone.
Elizabeth Cullen – Manager
It is unreal that I had surgery on my eyes yesterday and today I am driving a car. I have hardly any discomfort and I was able to wake up and see the flowers outside of my bedroom without fumbling for my glasses or putting my contacts in.
Brian Duron – Driver
I've found this to be one of the most friendly and painless procedures thus far in my 24 years of life. I highly recommend this to anyone with eye problems. Sightfully yours.
Tamra Schorr – Network Administrator
I just wanted to extend my gratitude to the wonderful staff of Caster Eye Center. I've never seen this well with my glasses and it definitely has made my sex life more exciting! Thank you
Matt Arnold – Web Developer
Holy Cow! What can I say? This procedure is awesome. This is a new lease on life P.L. (post Lasik). I am so excited. I am going to skip work today and go see a movie…. But not just any movie…. One of those French ones with subtitles and I'm going to sit in the last row, just because I am now able to read all the subtitles.
Melinda Bryan – Physical Therapist
What a great experience to be able to wake up, see the clock, and not rely on my children to say, "here's your glasses mommy"!!
From the moment I walked into the Caster Eye Center, everyone was wonderful, very knowledgeable, and I felt completely confident in the care I would ultimately receive. I've worn glasses and or contacts since I was 10 years old, to now have freedom from all of those drops and solutions and no more "fishing" for my glasses. 25 years later…. What a blessing from God and of course with the hands of Dr. Caster and his staff.
Thank you Thank you Thank you! I can see!
Ken Klausner – Real Estate Developer
I was very relaxed prior to the procedure, and found it to be as easy getting your teeth cleaned. The staff did a great job discussing what to expect before, during and after the procedure so there were no surprises.
The results are truly amazing. Due to my astigmatism, I could only see every small part of the world very clearly. Now I feel like I'm looking through a wide-angle lens. It has only been one day but I feel like I can already see better than I could with my glasses. Now it is time for the real test - to see how much my tennis game has improved.
Thanks so much.
Samuel Thurber – Physician
There are not enough superlatives to explain how wonderful it is to see when I wake up in the morning, to forget about fumbling for my glasses, to forget about contact drops, and to exercise without glasses fogging up or the contacts slipping.
Thank you so much for the best vision I've ever had…just one day after the procedure!
Carl Ginsberg – Finance
I had the Lasik procedure on both eyes yesterday. In less than 24 hours I've gone from 20/600 and 20/700 to 20/20. Pretty amazing - particularly with no pain or discomfort. The world is a little blurry today still but I was able to drive here without glasses and can do anything! The staff at Caster Eye Canter has been wonderful. They are very professional (I think they triple check everything) and help provide a high level of comfort with the procedure that I would not expect from a "discount" facility. They really seem to be the best!
Michael Gannon – Sound Designer/Producer
This is the first time in forty years that I can see everything in the room, including the clock when I wake up in the morning.
I want to thank you and your staff for giving me my eyesight back to 20/20 and with the greatest of care.
Janey Miller – Technology Consultant
Thank you Caster Eye Center! You were all so friendly, comforting, and helpful during my procedure. With your explanations and support and support. The surgery was easier than I expected.
Today I woke up (day 1) with 20/20 vision, could see my husband clearly, and felt great joy! I thank you and God for allowing me to see the world!
Bridget O'Reilly – Web Producer
Dr. Caster and your marvelous staff,
I figured I could always back out at the last minute! But your incredible professionalism and kindness urged me on! My vision is fantastic already and the whole experience is a miracle of science, technology and surgical skill. The most professional doctor's office makes all the difference.
Christopher Janney – Producer
The staff was more than helpful and caring. I have a huge fear of my eyes being damaged and still the procedure went without a hitch.
It took two months for me to gather the courage to get this done. Now I realize there was no real reason to wait.
Thank you very much.
Max Paetzold – Accountant
Well it's been over a year since I first saw Dr. Caster and his wonderful staff. At that time they all recommended that I wait a while because of my large pupil size. It was certainly worth the wait. Less than 24 hours since my procedure, I can see more clearly than with my glasses. Once again, thanks to Dr. Caster and his wonderful staff.
Bob Greenblatt – TV Producer
The procedure was easy and completely painless. The staff is so thorough I think I could now give new patients the instructions. The whole experience is almost too good to be true, so there seems to be no reasons not to do it. It's not the most inexpensive place to have the surgery done, but if you're going to risk something as valuable as your eyesight, why not go to the best - you'll get what you pay for. Soon this procedure will all but be routine, in the meantime, Dr. Caster is the best!
Adam Lazarus – Talent Agent
Great experience - All steps were clearly and thoroughly explained, which took potential anxiety out of the procedure. Amazingly quick and painless. Less than 24 hours later, vision seems virtually perfect with very little irritation. Entire staff was really courteous and capable.
Barni Rothman – Attorney
The entire staff was both friendly and professional and very well informed. The pre-op information during the initial consultation, pre-op exam, and prep right before the surgery was very thorough. The procedure itself was a lot easier than I thought - probably in part because I was so well informed prior to it. There has been no pain or discomfort. I can see great! What a miracle!
Steve Chavez – Creative Director/Director
Funny when I came to Dr. Caster I couldn't see a lick. After the surgery, I can see better than I ever have in my entire life. I recommend it.
John Charlton – Finance
I had no reservations about the procedure prior to my first consultation. However, Dr. Caster's organization erased my concerns by clearly discussing the entire procedure and answering all questions.
Now that the procedure is over, I am very pleased with the results. My only question now is when will more people have been treated than not.
Thanks for the experience.
Michael Barton –
OUTSTANDING EXPERIENCE! I am a hardened cynic and I must say, every expectation has been exceeded. I'm impressed.
*The surgery was painless and completely uneventful
*The staff was absolutely brilliant and professional and competent
*The morning after was miraculous!
*There is absolutely no pain or discomfort.
I'm seeing 20/20 for the first time in 24 years. Thank you Dr. Caster and staff. If you are having any doubts, PLEASE DO IT.
Karen Reinhart – Asst. Director
It's the next day after my surgery and I am amazed at how well I can see! It is a whole new view and I don't think I've yet fully understood that I am seeing without any help. I'm so glad I did it. The surgery itself was such a non-event and the recovery process astonishingly easy. Dr. Caster and his staff were incredibly accommodating and helpful, not to mention comforting. Thanks so much!
Timothy Cook – Audiologist
Dr. Caster is "The Man". I never realized how many small details I was missing even in the most boring billboards along the 10 freeway! I am very impressed with my "new eyes"! Thank you again!
Joseph Baldassarra – Stock Broker
I would recommend Dr. Caster and his staff to everyone. I had nothing but a pleasant experience. They are very nice and most of all truthful. My surgery was over before I knew it and it was pain free. The day I had my surgery, I was seeing better than I ever had with my glasses and contacts. Thanks so much Dr. Caster and staff.
Janine Coover – Website Project Mgr.
It's amazing! I haven't been able to see this clearly without something in front of my eyes since I was in 3rd grade. I really didn't remember what it was like, until now. What freedom!
Charles Coley – Business Analyst
The metaphor, "Like night versus day", best describes the miracle of Lasik. Dr. Caster and his team combine state of the art technology and old-fashioned bedside manner to restore vision.
If you are considering laser vision correction, then I encourage you to contact the Caster Eye Center. We are fortunate to have the option of regaining sight without the aid of contacts or glasses. Thank you Dr. Caster!!
Sheldon Cohn – Real Estate Lender
I checked out other corrective eye surgeons prior to deciding on Dr. Caster. His facility is state-of-the-art and his staff is professional, courteous and well informed. The pre-operative procedure was excellent. The procedure itself was incredibly quick and the results were fantastic. I can see without corrective lenses for the first time in 23 years.
Owen Gross – Attorney
From my first visit through the procedure and follow-up visit (3 days later), everyone I dealt with at the office was kind, professional and extremely knowledgeable which gave me great comfort that the procedure would go smoothly and that I had chosen the right place to have the procedure done. Now that it is done, I am amazed with the results even though it really hasn't sunk in yet that I am free from my glasses for doing even the most basic tasks. Thanks to everyone.
Seth Rolle –
Great time - great job - wonderful people -
Can say enough about the office and the doctors. Everyone made me feel so at ease. The procedure was amazingly painless and quick.
Don't forget: manicure during procedure would perfect it.
I'm forever grateful!! Dr. Caster, you're my hero!
Molly Osgood – Consultant
What a wonderful feeling - I can now see after 25 years of wearing contacts.
Now I feel that I can enjoy life to it's fullest without having to wear contacts! Thank you.
Shari Rutherford – Sales
I highly recommend Dr. Caster and his staff! They all exude a professional and friendly flow in patient care and consideration. It truly is wonderful to see one's world with such sharpness and clarity in such a short time after surgery; one day.
Mark Sailor – Investments
A piece of cake. I would recommend this procedure, Dr. Caster and his associates to anyone. Seeing is truly believing. Thank you.
Ned Beedie – Writer
A miracle procedure. Less than one day later I was reading 20/20. A long way from the previous day. I was nervous about getting the procedure done as my pupils dilate out bigger than average. I was told by another doctor six months ago that Lasik wasn't for me. I waited some time - did some research - and came here. All of my fears were addressed. The staff was very personable and friendly (and very P.C. - thanks Laura!) and now I can see perfectly!
Philip Kleinbart – Producer
Very professional environment which results in the patient having confidence in capabilities of doctors and staff. I was filled in on every possible aspect of procedure and side effects. Overall very positive experience, not to mention great results!
Trent Vernon – Website Designer
My results were better than expected and I am trilled with them. Aside from the great medical services provided, Dr. Caster's greatest asset is his super staff. From counselors, technicians, doctors, assistants, and receptionists…. They were all the best and made the experience that much better.
Stacey Kronquist – Finance Executive
I really felt like I was in good hands at the Caster Eye Center. Not only were the staff professional and knowledgeable, but I felt like they truly cares about me and the health of my eyes. I want to thank all of you for caring and kindness. And the best part of all - I can see!!!!! Thank you!
P.S. I also appreciate the sense of humor exhibited by Dr. Hoff. It definitely helped to relieve the tension and keep me from worrying about what was to come! Thank you.
James Moon – Network Administrator
What more can I say, before my surgery I read pages and pages of good reviews. I must concur; the Lasik procedure is painless and very rewarding. The staff has been more than professional (friendly, assuring…) and Dr. Caster has done an exceptional job. I'm headed off to Cancun next month WITHOUT my glasses! Thank you staff, Dr. Caster and Visx Star2.
Stacey Belche – Speech Pathologist
When I initially began shopping around for a Lasik physician, my criterion was simple: to find the expert. I wanted a physician with experience as well as the most advanced equipment available. After visiting several centers, I made an addition to my criteria…the way the business is run. I noticed an immediate difference when I walked into the Caster Eye Center. The environment was calm. There were some patients, but not a crowd. I appreciated the individual attention paid to me by everyone on staff here. No patient here is sat onto a "conveyor belt" and hurried through. Thank you to Dr. Caster and his staff for their expertise, sensitivity, and case by case treatments.
Mary Dippel – Video Post Production
Painless and easy - hearing about what the procedure entailed from Dr. Caster's great staff was scarier than the actual procedure.
Joanne Ratinoff – Attorney
Fantastic! And wonderful in the literal sense of being full of wonder - that this procedure exists and I can see all the time for the first time in 37 years! If everyone could have the results I've had, there wouldn't be a person around wearing glasses or contact lenses. My vision is perfect - both for reading and fine close work and for distance.
I had the surgery on Thursday afternoon at 4:30 and the very next morning at 6:30 am I went cycling with my club. No problems. On Saturday (3 days post-op) I rode Solvang Century (100 mile bike ride). I've had no dry eyes, no halos, no stars, nothing. Just perfect vision. Thanks to Dr. Caster and staff!
Cynthia Anderson – Internet Quality Assurance
Thank you Dr. Caster and Caster Eye Center. You made a believer of me. The procedure was virtually painless and over in minutes. Your team made me very welcome and at ease. All of my questions were answered with complete, understandable explanations. I thank you and my eyes thank you!
Katherine Tran – Pharmacist
Now if an earthquake hits LA, I can find the stairway without having to put on my contact lenses first. What a relief!!
Thank you Dr. Caster for the gift of sight. After 20 years plus of having to deal with glasses and contact lenses just to get around the apartment, the surgery has given me a completely new sense of freedom.
The surgery was painless and quick. The staff was experienced, professional and friendly - especially Alex and Diane. Thank you.
Bryan Beaty – Business Owner
Amazing!! I had the surgery performed this morning at 10am and less than 7 hours later I can see 20/30 and can legally drive without corrective lenses! (Actually I am writing this without my glasses, which I could never have done before!) Dr. Caster must have the most rewarding career I can imagine! He has provided me with the best gift I've received in my 33 years! His staff was amazing and helped to make the experience as comfortable as possible! Again - Amazing!!
John Romero – Marketing Mgr.
The entire procedure was a very positive, enjoyable process that instilled confidence. I had researched the process and considered all my options and selected your office with anticipation of quality service.
Your staff was excellent in all aspects of service. Their explanations were thorough and allayed any fears I had.
I especially anticipated and enjoyed the actual procedure. Being a Sci Fi fan I enjoyed the experience of undergoing a procedure utilizing cutting edge technology. Thanks again!
Shiela Jauregui – Paralegal
This has been, by far, the most rewarding decision I have made. That I can see without assistance is beyond amazing, but that this was the most painless transition I have ever made is all because of the gracious staff here. From Dr. Caster himself to Dr. Slivar, Alicia, Diane, Alex… The sweetest and most caring group of strangers I have ever encountered.
Thank you for my vision; thank you for your kindness!
Scott Gross – Owner Promotional Company
The employees and help are all incredibly nice and sweet to be with. They make you feel very comfortable and relaxed and the whole experience is great. Thanks Dr. Caster you made it all worth while.
Suzanne Palanuk – Actress
Yaa Hoo!! I can see!!
This is just amazing. Yesterday when I came in I expected to have good vision when I was done - But I have great vision! 20/15 (and before I could not see anything unless it was right by my face). No waiting - Boom! It is perfect. I have to remind myself this is the new me and not just contacts.
Dr. Caster is the best! Yes, I could have gone somewhere less expensive, but why would someone bargain with his or her eyes? Thank you Thank you
Sandy Petitjean – Computer Graphic Artist
One regret; I should have done this sooner! The morning after surgery, my left eye was 20/20. My right eye, which was considerably weaker, is much better and is expected to "catch up" in a few days. I can't wait to hit the beach, and go in the water unaccompanied - for the first time. For once; I can find my way back to my blanket! The doctors and technicians here are all so supportive, thorough and friendly. I was impressed at all the extensive pre-op exams - 3 in all. I felt very confident that the surgery would be successful. Not suprisingly, it was! My recommendation to anyone with poor eyesight: Don't wait, Just do it.
Chad Landers – Personal Trainer
The procedure was pain-free and done quickly! The staff was always polite and courteous and kept me calm when I got nervous.
I highly recommend this procedure and especially Dr. Caster and his staff. I've told my friends that if I weren't such a "tough guy" I would have cried! This has been a phenomenal experience!!
Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you!!
Anne Macmillan – R.E Agent
I came in for my eye measurements on a Wednesday and watched a procedure that day. That was reassuring. Knowing that the glaucoma machine actually touched my eye and I didn't feel a thing was very reassuring (knowing that the anesthetic drops actually worked). I was not nervous at all, I'm not sure if that was due to your wonderful staff or the drugs (probably a combination). I still can't believe I'm seeing this well without contacts. I've worn contacts for 30 years. Thank you
Kathryn Eisenstein – Casting Director
WOW - the worst part of the whole procedure is not needing to visit the great office staff, starting for Dr.'s Caster and Hoff on down, for another month.
As far as my vision is concerned I lack the vocabulary to describe how happy I am and what a difference this has made to my life. I am only beginning to realize the benefits.
Barbara Epstein – Producer/Director
The entire process was truly a miracle. The staff is wonderful and the procedure is honestly "a piece of cake."
Many of my friends will be following in my footsteps. And women over 40 will understand when I say this is much faster, easier and less discomfort than a mammogram.
Peter Iliff – Film Writer
When I was 6 yrs. Old I was fitted for eyeglasses. By 25, contacts were a problem for me due to GPC. At 40, my vision was -7.00 in each eye. Now I see better than 20/20. The staff at Caster Eye Center could not have been friendlier. The surgery was painless, Freaky, but still not a problem. By the next morning I was reborn with fantastic vision. My near vision is still a bit shaky but what the hell, it should clear up. Caster and Co. have my heartfelt thanks.
PJ Torokvei – Writer
Comfort, care and concern. These are the over-riding feelings I have had from everyone connected with the center. Friendly and helpful people every step of the way. Any fears I had were quickly assuaged. My experience here was positive in every way and I am very happy.
As for the actual results, well I couldn't be more satisfied. I have a restored faith in the medical community in general because of how well treated I have been in the specific. Thanks.
Tom Rutigliano – Aircraft Sales
Very quick, 58 seconds right eye 45 seconds left eye. There is no pain. Improvement right away. Best thing I ever did for myself.
Carl Lambert – Attorney
The procedure was easier and quicker than I imagined! The staff is excellent.
Mary Ellen Robinette – Office Manager
I sit here one day after my surgery and am thrilled beyond belief. I can now see without glasses or contact lenses and drove to my post op appointment.
There was absolutely no pain during or after the surgery and I can begin to explain the joy in awaking and being able to see all my surroundings.
I was extremely satisfied with Dr. Caster in his caring way he talks to you through the procedure and in his expertise in this field. I thank him and God for what I believe to be a truly marvelous event!
Erik Hairapetian – Tax Consultant
· Most interesting is that there was absolutely no discomfort during or after the procedure. No pain whatsoever.
· The office setting is very professional, yet very comforting. Excellent staff, especially Patty.
· The immediate result in ones vision is quite startling.
· Dr. Caster's expertise puts a lot of my concerns at ease.
· Painless procedure with startling results.
Erik Feig – Producer
I walked in wearing glasses I've never liked to wear and the very next day I was playing tennis. I had always worn glasses for nearsightedness and also always taken them off as soon as possible. This past weekend, at a wedding, I took them off as usual and put them in my suit jacket pocket. Dancing, they fell out of my pocket and everyone stomped on them. If that isn't a sign from God, I don't know what is.
Davis Fukunaga – Nat'l Account Manager
I am very happy with the procedure overall. I wasn't too concerned since Dr. Caster is known as the "best". My family doctor and my optometrist both know of him.
The procedure itself was neither painful nor uncomfortable. Just ask for 2 xanax and you won't remember a thing. I am very excited about not having to wear glasses or contacts. The costs associated to those 2 are much more than the procedure in the long run. If you are a candidate…. do it.
Eric Cotsen – Executive
My years as a teenager were haunted by the specter of wearing thick nerdy glasses. I wore my prescription aviation sunglasses so often (even at night) that people in my high school were sure I was drug dealer (and I was one of the few who had never even smoked pot!). I was just trying to look "cool".
Contacts were a godsend. They changed my life. But being lazy, I could never be bothered to take them out at night like I was supposed to. Once I had left my contacts in for a period of over 9 months (much to the horror of my optometrist). Ultimately, this led to an increasing amount of corneal abrasions in addition to blood vessel growth into my cornea, which, if unabated, could eventually endanger my vision.
Lasik is now the godsend. The staff was always professional, courteous and knowledgeable. Everything that would happen to me was clearly and patiently explained beforehand (even the risks of failure). In fact, they were so thorough and confidant in their approach that when the "miracle" occurred it seemed inevitable. I felt ungracious for being so complacent about the Caster Eye Center delivering this miracle to me. They have my profound thanks. Though words feel inadequate here they will have to do. I guess referrals will better do the job.
Melissa McInnis – Audiologist
Dr. Caster, Dr. Hoff & Staff,
I can't tell you how grateful I am for the nearly perfect vision I now have (and it's only the morning after!). Your care and precision in both preliminary visits and the day of the procedure were outstanding. I never had a moment of fear, uncertainty or regret for selecting your center to correct my most precious sense. I will be thanking you every morning for years to come!
Thank you so much– you are truly the best at what you do.
JiHee Kim – Research Tech
I went to a few other places before I decided on Dr. Caster. The level of professionalism really impressed me and the latest laser technology also won me over. My overall experience was great.
Toni Goldstein – Teacher
The staff at the Caster Eye Center is terrific!! They're kind, upbeat and extremely patient with all kinds of questions! I was well prepared for the procedure and didn't experience any problems. There was no pain - I didn't even need the second pill that night. Dr. Caster is wonderful - I would highly recommend him to everyone.
Jeff Branion – Game Designer
After 2 years of meticulous research on the subject, I finally decided to check out the Lasik procedure first hand. With the best combination of technology, staff experience, atmosphere, and "bedside manner", Caster Eye Center was the only choice for me.
Everyone at Caster was extremely nice, knowledgeable, and able to answer any and all questions I had about every aspect of the procedure. I have a bunch of friends who are contemplating the procedure, and I have to tell them about Dr. Caster, his wonderful staff, and the incredible technology behind the Alcon laser. I looked at several places around town before selecting Caster Eye Center. I know without a doubt I made the right choice.
Khaled Nasr – Marketing
This has to be one of the strangest experiences I ever had. You live your life unable to see clearly, and in five minutes with Dr. Caster, he changes your life. I must say that the whole office was full of upbeat, experienced people that made the whole experience memorable. Each doctor took all the time I needed to have my questions answered and to make me comfortable. Dr. Caster truly deserves to be called the best eye doctor in the United States. I even made a special friend who helped me through the whole operation. Hello Cindy J
Lissa Dutton – Mom
You have changed my life!!! I can't begin to describe what it's like to not wear glasses. The people here are wonderful - they made me feel extremely comfortable. The procedure was painless and quick. I would recommend this to everyone I know who wears glasses and/or contacts. It is the most liberating experience. I wish I had it done earlier. Thank you! Thank you!
Karen Hood – Mommy
Thank you so very much Dr. Caster, Dr. Hoff, Patricia and the rest of the staff. I'm so pleased with the results of Lasik so far. It's amazing that just yesterday I couldn't even see the clock in the car and today I can not only see that but I can see road signs, faces, the house across the street. I loved going into my daughters room morning and seeing her cherry face in her crib without my glasses on. Thank you for your professionalism, for taking this procedure so serious for each individual patient. Thank you for being the best. It's been a pleasure spending time with all of you.
Kimberly Brown – Model
Dr. Caster and Staff,
I never thought it could be possible for me to have perfect vision and thanks to you guys, I CAN SEE! I love you all thanks so much!
Jack Bernstein – Writer
I was actually hoping to have x-ray vision like Superman but seeing without contacts is almost as good. I will certainly miss the twice-daily ritual of contact lenses but I will be able to make good use of the extra time. The entire group of employees here is quite exceptional and they should all be given immediate raises of 20-25%. Thanks Again
Amro Nasr – Engineer
It was an excellent experience having my eyes corrected here. I could not have asked for a better and more professional group of people. For years I have wanted to have this procedure done but have not found the ideal environment to have it done. I can not express how much relief I feel at not having to rely on contacts or glasses again. Thanks
David Cantor – CPA
To say the procedure went well is an understatement. Everything was explained beforehand and during the procedure. There was no pain, no discomfort or any problems at all. Two days later and I am 20/20.
Why did I wait so long to do it???
Kathleen Minor – Performer
I started wearing glasses in the 3rd grade and contacts when I was 15. It was difficult when I was younger performing in ballet companies and musicals without glasses and then with hard contact lenses. Even with soft lenses things could go wrong with performing such as losing a contact or it being destroyed. After the surgery with Dr. Caster I felt no pain or discomfort and could see better right away. Even the procedure was painless and quite fast. When I awoke the next morning and could see the clock by the bed very clearly. I haven't been able to see it for years!! Now my husband can't make fun of me when I can't read the clock. My eyesight is almost perfect the next day and I am thrilled with the results. Now we can go to Puerto Rico and I can swim and snorkel and be able to see the fish. Thank you.
Ronald Grusd – Physician
Excellent throughout. All the staff was most friendly, professional and helpful. The doctors were great. Thanks to all and especially Dr. Hoff and Caster. Dr. Caster, thank you much for so exactly "fixing" my eyes.
David Nikfarjam – Retailer
I can not believe I did it, but it was the best thing I have ever done to treat myself. If anyone asked me if they should do this I would tell them don't wait a day.
Timur Galen – Architect
Dr. Caster and Staff:
Thank you for a most professional experience. The care and kindness that you have all shown is most welcome. So is the absence of my contact lenses.
Mitchell Bravo – Real Estate Broker
Dear Dr. Caster,
Thank you for the most professional medical experience I've ever had of any kind. I thank you and would refer you in an instant.
Rachael Dula – Telephone Data Rep.
I am absolutely thrilled! Yesterday I came in with -8.50 diopters in my right eye and -8.00 diopters in my left eye. Today I see 20/30 with my right eye and 20/20 with my left eye. The difference is amazing! The procedure was painless and extremely quick. The Nordstrom level of care service, which I received, put me at ease and made this whole experience, a truly pleasant one. My compliments to Drs. Caster and Hoff, and the entire staff. Thank you very much!
Leo Wong – Writer/Producer
My experience at the Caster Eye Center has been terrific! The staff is exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable. Dr. Caster and Dr. Hoff are extremely personable and professional. It's nice to know that I'll never have to worry about glasses or contacts because of nearsightedness or astigmatism for the rest of my life. I don't feel like this has changed my life. Instead, it has enhanced it to make it easier, more free, and fun!
Otto Jozsa – Artist
Human language is limited to express my experience and feeling. Dr. Caster is a God given gift, a chosen one for mankind. I had no pain or discomfort under or after the surgery. My vision is great. This crew is marvelous, loving people. I am very happy; my good karma took me here. Thanks!
Sixto Pena – Pest Control Tech.
I'd like to thank the Caster Eye Center for all their help at allowing me to wear cool 80's sunglasses without having them be prescription glasses. Thanks
Brenda Swanson – Caviar Dealer
The best thing I've ever done for myself. As scared as I was, I would recommend this surgery to anyone even with the slightest vision disorder. I now have 20/15 vision and feel like a goddess of eyesight! Thanks again
Linda Fields Hill – Assistant Associate Producer
My experience here at the Caster Eye Center has been extremely positive. Every member of your team that I have had the opportunity to meet with, during before and after my corrective surgery has left a long lasting impression. Leaving me with tremendous confidence and comfort with my decision to have the procedure. Thank you so much!
Arash Rad – Radiology Tech.
I am still in shock to believe "I am 20/20." I love Dr. Caster and office staff, which did the great job to make me happy and comfortable. Also I like the office which is very very organized and clean. Once again I want to give thanks to everyone who helped me be able to see 20/20/ I just love it 20/20.
Kevin Smith – Financial Analyst
An amazing experience, I feel great!
The doctors and staff at the Caster Eye Center made me feel so comfortable the entire time, which just made everything so much easier. My vision was not horrible to start out with, just enough to need glasses most of the time. So the change isn't as drastic as some others, but I can feel the crispness and I am really looking forward to no glasses. It could not have been an easier process, and I want to thank everyone involved.
Reggie Ragay – Computer Programmer
The Caster Eye Center experience can be summed up into one word "Incredibly Thorough"!! Okay, so that's more than one word, but it's just like Dr. Caster and his staff to go beyond what is expected. Dr. Caster's expertise as well as his staffs' attention to detail is very comforting. I felt very at ease with the whole procedure anyone considering Lasik to choose the Caster Eye Center. My results? Prior to the surgery I had -7.50 in my right eye and -6.50 in my left eye. Today, following the surgery, I can read with 20/20 vision. J Best Wishes
Vinnie Lupinacci – Student
It's only been about 20 hours since my surgery and I can already see 20/20. This whole experience has been awesome. All the people were nice and knowledgeable. I'm looking forward to not having to put in my contacts every morning and take them out every night; or even worse, accidentally falling asleep in them and not being able to open my eyes the next morning. I suggest the surgery to anybody considering it. It is not painful…it just sounds scarier than it is. So do it, and enjoy!
Robert Gonzaga – Network Engineer
After over 20 years of using glasses, I am now able to see without them. Everybody whom I've seen from the very first exam has been comforting as well as informative. I will recommend Dr. Caster to other friends and family.
Michael Corbett – Self Employed
Dr. Caster and staff,
WOW!! What a feeling to wake up and see clearly. I don't know why I waited so long. The complete experience was great!! Thank you
Sandra Granados – Customer Service
Truly amazing! Dr. Caster has changed my life. I am now 20/20! My experience here at the Caster Eye Center was outstanding. There was no pain during nor after my procedure, only slight discomfort for about three hours after my surgery. I wish I had done it sooner! For anyone considering laser vision correction do it! Dr. Caster is an outstanding doctor and his staff is very nice and professional. I will remember this day forever as one of the best days of my life. Thank You!
Lily Reeves – Teacher
I have worn glasses or contacts for 40 years. To actually wake up the next day and see without glasses was amazing. I went to work and felt great. The hardest part was wearing my glasses prior to the surgery. I'm so excited and happy that I finally did this. Thanks to everyone on staff. Everyone was professional and friendly.
Karen Dickerson – Retired
The Caster Eye Center experience was great from scheduling my initial consultation to the post procedure follow up. The entire staff was pleasant, helpful, knowledgeable and professional. Most important - my vision is amazing! Thanks
Michael Downey – America Online Sales
Thank you very much for your help. I can't believe that I can see without my glasses. It is unbelievable! Your team is very professional and made me feel very comfortable. Thanks for making this a very positive experience.
Bonnie Omura – Claims Supervisor
I've worn glasses for28 years and could not remember how great it was to see clearly without wearing them. The day after surgery I'm able to see clear. It's a great feeling. Thanks Dr. Caster.
Martha Ho –
My eyes were bad since I was 9 years old and one of my dreams was to be able to see clearly - when I wake up, when I look at trees. The advent of soft contact lenses seemed to bring this dream closer to reality and for 30 odd years, this is what I have been doing.
Then came the advent of Lasik but for several years, I was very reluctant to walk into a doctor's office to do this. But when my own doctor, Dr. Levin, got his eyes Lasik'ed and spoke so highly of Dr. Caster, I made up my mind to come in and get my eyes done. This is the day after the procedure and I drove in myself. I used to have 7.25 and 7.00 with astigmatism. I elected to get monovision so I can read easily with one eye and it seems to be doing extremely well. I want to thank Dr. Caster and his professional staff for their care. My one pair of eyes is very precious to me.
Dale Widolff – Football coach
Having eye surgery is not something I would consider unless I had complete confidence in the doctor and his staff. I wanted the best in the field and I believe Dr. Caster and his staff are the best, complete and thorough. I would recommend them to anyone who is considering this procedure.
Brian Kim – Investment Banker
Thank you Dr. Caster and team!
I've suffered from all different types of contact lenses and glasses since 3rd grade because of my active lifestyle. I probably break one or two pairs every year. I just scheduled a trip down to Belize and am extremely looking forward to the scuba diving I'll be doing without the aid of glasses or contacts.
Brian Shin – Consultant
It's amazing to be able to see without my glasses when I opened my eyes the morning after the surgery. The service and treatment that I received was outstanding. The staff was friendly and answered all my questions and concerns. I would recommend the treatment to anyone who is considering it. I will definitely recommend the Caster Eye Center to all my friends and family.
Thank you very much.
Chris Shay – Photographer
In coming to the Caster Eye Center, I came with great confidence in Dr. Caster's work. My girlfriend had just had the work 3 months ago with amazing results. This is the most amazing, painless, beautiful operation. It opens up a whole new world. Being someone who is extremely active, especially in the ocean and mountains, it will make life a whole lot easier. Truly amazing where technology has taken us. Thank you so much everyone at the Caster Eye Center. You guys are the greatest. I can't wait to go home and smash my glasses. Thanks again.
Bobbie Carrasco – Realtor
Thanks to the Lasik procedure, Dr. Caster and staff I am able to see distance perfectly 20/20. It was amazing this morning when I woke up and looked out my window I saw leaves on the trees, mountains, I even saw my daughters eyes from across the room! Hopefully I will be able to see up close (reading) as this heals.
The procedure itself went so quickly and did not hurt. I have not felt any pain and today is only the second day! The doctors and staff are very professional and make you feel comfortable with the whole process. Thanks
Steven Driss – Student
When I first thought about Lasik I was skeptical because I thought I was too young. However, everything turned out great. The surgery was easy and painless. I was able to see right after the surgery without any problems. The next morning I saw even better and I drove back to see the doctor and excellent staff. I have been struggling with glasses and contacts for 10 years. My vision got as bad as -7.5 in my eyes and Dr. Caster fixed me up with no problems. Thanks again. The experience was excellent and now I feel great.
Jo Anne Sornborger – Doctoral Student
I can not say enough about the sensitivity, care and professionalism I experienced from the staff at the Caster Eye Center. The miracle of Lasik goes without saying but the attitude of each member of the Caster team made this anxiety provoking procedure worth every step.
Dr. Caster was able to correct my vision to 20/15! I couldn't help but cry when I could actually see my TV without the headache of glasses.
I can not recommend having the Lasik procedure from Dr. Caster and his team enough! They have my eternal gratitude!
Joanna Johnson – Screenwriter
An easy, painless experience. It's great to be free of glasses. The care at Caster is excellent. I would highly recommend it to anyone. Thanks.
Catherine Lydon – Legal Asst.
The fact that I can see to write this less than 24 hours after the operation is truly a miracle. It is overwhelming to see trees and flowers clearly. It was wonderful to see the happy faces of Dr. Caster, Dr. Hoff and all the terrific staff. You all made a kinda scary thing a true joy - and made my "new eyes" even more of a dream come true.
My mostest, wonderfulest and deepest thanks to you all! You are the best. Thank you
Diana Damkevala – Senior Sales Rep.
Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to see again! My vision was so poor, that I would not be able to leave my house without glasses or contacts. Now, I can see everything! I know my life will be greatly enhanced. You and your staff were very helpful and professional. I will recommend Caster Eye Center to all! Thanks again.
Max Hendricks – Loan Consultant
Only one word comes to mind- AMAZING! The procedure was quite painless, recovery was extremely fast (1 day) and my vision was 20/20 the next day. After my operation the staff was wonderful and I recommend this procedure to anyone. Thank you to all the individuals that helped me and of course a special thanks to Dr. Caster.
Mike Schibel – Former Student
Thanks to Dr. Caster I can see and it's opened a whole new world to me.
Norman Burlingame – Executive
I woke up this morning and I was able to see all the things that I couldn't see yesterday morning. The alarm clock was readable from across the bedroom; I combed my hair without squinting; and found my shirt and tie with ease and clarity. I can honestly say I experienced no pain or discomfort at all during or after the procedure. I will recommend it to everyone! Thank You
Wendy Abas – Executive Asst./ Actor
As a longtime contact wearer with very dry eyes, the most amazing thing is to be able to see with no pain or scratchiness or redness. I don't think it's hit me yet that I can see 20/20 with no help and no discomfort. Thank you. Thank you. This truly is a miracle - disbelief and all.
Linda Fuller – Director/Entertainment Tonight
Thank you for this miracle! This is the first time in over 30 years that I am glasses and contact lens free. What a pleasure to wake up in the morning and see the precious faces of my children clearly. The procedure was simple and painless. You and your excellent staff explained everything so clearly and really made me feel at ease. Thanks again for restoring this most precious gift- my sight.
Susan Collister – Advertising Account Exec.
What can I say… I was blind before my surgery. Right after the procedure I could see the clock on the wall- before the surgery I couldn't see it at all! Today I am 20/25 in both eyes- only to get better! Dr. Caster was so gentle and sweet. His staff is amazing too. So warm, friendly and reassuring! I'm going to recommend this to everyone I know that wears contacts. It's a miracle!!! I can't wait to play tennis-run-bike-swim without contacts. Thanks so much!
Joe O'Donnell – Special Agent
I just wanted to thank Dr. Caster and the Caster Eye Center for giving me my vision. The procedure was simple and painless. Six hours later, I could see. The next morning I picked my 18 mo. old son up out of his crib and I could see him perfectly. What a wonderful gift. I would recommend it to anyone.
Maurece Chesse –
The eyes have it..
Looking in ones' eyes,
reveals the self-reflection.
All the untold secrets,
are told in but one second.
Eyes are beacons in a crowd,
saying, come-hither out loud. So don't believe your secrets,
or perhaps your greatest fears, are hidden safely, tucked away,
between your inner ear. For through that window on your face,
the TRUTH is on display. The EYES can not hide what the soul doth have to say.
Moira Giammatteo – Exec. Assist.
To Dr. Caster & the staff at the Caster Eye Center,
How can I thank you for what you have given back to me? The results were better than I expected, 20/20 day after surgery. The best part was that this morning, when my son came into our bedroom, I could see his beautiful face as he stood at the doorway -WOW-the only word for it is "miracle".
The entire staff is wonderful and willing to spend the time to answer all my questions - they were also willing to answer my husband's questions & even laughed at his jokes!
Thanks so much and I'll be seeing you!
Paul Janke – Research Scientist
As a researcher in the field of nano-electronics I know the importance of using the best equipment. My procedure was only possible using your laser because of my large pupils. After wearing glasses for 30 years, my vision is now better than it has ever been- 20/15! I see everything so clearly, I am truly amazed. I was excited before the procedure, and now I'm even more excited to experience all my activities WITHOUT GLASSES! Thanks to Dr. Caster and his entire staff for making the experience to easy.
Richard Lang – Consultant
All I can say is, "WOW"! This is the best thing I've done in years. I had absolutely no pain. The staff is unbelievable! I can't thank them enough!
I drove here without GLASSES! Thanks again!
Debbie Chavez – Accountant
To anyone interested in doing the Lasik procedure, I highly recommend the services of Dr. Caster and his staff. From the first second I walked into the office and met the staff and doctors it was clear I was in a top-notch facility. The expertise of all the staff was clearly evident. Everything about the procedure was explained thoroughly and all my questions were answered satisfactorily. And then there are the results of the surgery! What can I say? Words cannot explain how great I feel. I can see! Thanks again to Dr. Caster and his staff. This is truly unbelievable.
Michelle L Sorey – Public Relations & Marketing Manager
Dr. Caster, Dr. Hoff & Staff,
First & foremost the level of service and sensitivity by everyone - Drs & staff - was outstanding! I can't stop smiling!! Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought or believed that after 30+ years of wearing corrective lenses I would be able to see without them. And here I am, less than 24 hours after the surgery able to see with such clarity- amazing. Thank you, thank you, thank you, I can't say thank you enough for the experience. It was the best birthday gift I have ever gotten- the gift of sight.
Kenny Minster –
Dear Dr. Caster and staff:
Here it is my 39th birthday, and I received the best gift - ever. The gift of perfect vision! I felt compelled to write this letter because of my experience… Okay, maybe I want this letter to be displayed on his office walls too! The staff really went out of their way to make me feel like family and not just another patient. My brother (who had a minor complication) was treated on a Sunday and he's healing perfectly. This kind of true commitment really impressed me.
The staff was very thorough and west over every step to assure me that the process was safe. Once on the table, I felt totally secure- knowing that Dr. Caster and his staff are the elite in this fairly new branch of medicine. I admit the concept of slicing my cornea wasn't pleasant. Once the "flap" was open, it looked as if I was looking through a Kaleidoscope and within a few minutes, it was replaced and I was done.
The Morning after the surgery, I could actually look up and see the "G.E." logo on the recessed lights in my bedroom's vaulted ceiling. My house stays cleaner because I see every cobweb and every spec of dirt - everywhere! I can actually spot a lone ant crawling across my floor…from 12-15 feet away. Gone are the tension headaches that my scratched glasses brought., Gone are the annoying and drawn-out contact lens routines.
While driving, I notice that my peripheral vision is so much better now. I notice everything and my reaction time seems much faster. With glases, the rims created blind spots and with contacts, they were always so bothersome, that I needed to focus
Thad Jones – Bus Owner
What a great experience! The staff made me feel very comfortable with the procedure. I would recommend Dr. Caster and his team to anyone. Thank you very much.
Kathleen Cole – Wife/Mom
For more than forty of my forty-nine years I've worn glasses or contacts. Now when I wake up in the morning I can clearly see myself in the vanity mirror across the room. I keep thinking how comfortable my contacts are or I should take out my contacts before I go to sleep. It's going to take a while to get used to this, but I'll enjoy every minute! My husbands a little annoyed. Now I can see when he makes funny faces at me. Thank you Caster Eye Center for your friendly and thorough attention. It's greatly appreciated.
Dave Wirtschafter – Literary Agent
Everything about the procedure and those who were involved in it exceeded my expectations. All my questions were honestly and thoroughly answered. The procedure was painless and my eyesight improved unbelievably. I would recommend this procedure and all of the people at the Caster Eye Center to anyone, and plan too.
Isabel Goldsmith – Hotelier
The best thing I have ever done for myself! I was quite nervous before the procedure, a feeling not helped by all the terrifying literature (disclaimers). So the simplicity and painlessness of the procedure was a surprise. It was also helped by the very kind nurses, the lovely teddy bear and the re-assuring hands of Dr. Caster. I was constantly re-assured throughout the procedure by Dr. Caster's gentle explanations and before I knew it it was over. You sit up and you can see! It's totally amazing. There was no post-operative pain and I have been able to monitor my vision getting better and sharper. The following morning it's 20/20 for the first time in my life since a teenager. Again, the best thing I could have done and the best place to have it done. Thank You.
Mark Newman – Commodities Broker
"Lasik with Dr. Caster has been the most liberating experience in my life since getting my driver's license."
Henry Rollins – Brilliant All Around, Media Phenom
It was a wonderful and Eye opening experience. Thank you for the pro treatment and amazing results.
Tricia Mendoza –
Well, what can I possibly say to thank you? Muchas Gracias!!! Although my vision was not desperately in need of help, I wanted perfect vision. I think I'm as close to it now as you can possibly get. Besides all that- your whole staff is the sweetest. That to me is the most important part. The detailed explanation of the procedure, the sensitive care and the joyful attitude really made me feel relaxed. The doctor kept saying "mind over matter." True. But for me it's 'support over matter' and I had lots of it. In turn I had confidence that everything would turn out good. And Wa-Laahh! I have brand new healthy eyes. Love Ya Guys!
Frances Fujii – Leadership Development Consultant
As with many other patients, I had been wearing glasses for a long time- more than 36 years! And contacts for 30 years. I'd been wanting to have my eyes "fixed" ever since RK came out- but I was too afraid. When I heard of Lasik, I inquired with a few doctors, but it wasn't until I came to Dr. Caster's office and watched the video that I felt confident. I really appreciate the professionalism and exacting procedures used here, as well as the consistent care and patience demonstrated by Dr. Caster, Dr. Hoff and all of the technicians and staff. I especially appreciated the fact that one technician worked with me for the entire 3 months- Roman did a great job of explaining everything and sharing about some of the hi-tech equipment he used. It was all very reassuring.
The procedure itself was quick- Winnie the Pooh helped calm my anxiety (nice touch) and today (the day after surgery) I am seeing 20/35. I am looking forward to a new freedom, especially since I love outdoor activities like hiking and rollerblading. I was always having problems with the dust getting in my contacts! I'd recommend Dr. Caster's office to anyone! Thank You!
Patricia Martin – FBI
My only regret is I waited so long to do this. I'm extremely pleased with the results although it is only the day after the procedure. I see fantastic! I felt very much at ease. Everything was explained in great detail and I felt absolutely no discomfort. I'd recommend this to everyone who is nearsighted. No more contact solution, contacts getting lost in my eyes, tearing, carrying extra pairs. This is great. I want to thank the staff for the professionalism and making me feel quite at ease. Again, this is the best decision I've ever made, just wish I would have done it sooner.
Timathea Workman – Writer
***** Out of 4 stars
Thanks to you I spent all night crying. I couldn't help it. For the first time in 30 years I could see myself in the mirror without glasses when I was further than 2 inches away. I could see the leaves on the trees. I could kiss my husband without smashing him with my frames. For the first time I see the world without smudges, and that is a beautiful treat.
What's just as wonderful is the way I was treated here: with the utmost care and professionalism, thoroughness and kindness. I'm so grateful to have found this place and to have worked with these people.
Diana Ungerleider –
I am writing this only 1-day after having Lasik, and I not only have no discomfort whatsoever- I have 20/20 vision! After wearing glasses or contacts for almost my whole life, it feels incredible to see so well with neither. I was grocery shopping this morning, and I was smiling and giggling as I went up and down the aisles because I felt so happy about my vision. (I'm sure people thought I was nuts!) Thank You, Dr. Caster and the staff!
Bill McIntyre – Marketing
I am very glad that I went to Dr. Caster for this surgery. I found his staff and him very professional, straightforward and easy to deal with. I will look back on this experience and wonder why I didn't do it sooner.
Grace Nomiyama – Engineer
I chose to get the Lasik surgery as a 40th birthday present to myself. And this has been the best gift I could've ever received! It's been less than 24 hours since the surgery and I can see better now than I could with my contacts! I wish I had done this earlier. The entire procedure was very pleasant and Dr. Caster and the staff were so helpful and nice. Thank You
Allison Michael – Attorney/Mom
For a couple of years I heard from many friends how easy and incredible Lasik is but I resisted out of fear. My experience has been nothing but positive here. Lasik is incredible, no doubt, but my fear dissipated because of Dr. Caster's success rate, his clear fascination with his work and his fabulous staff. I can see! It sounds so simple but it is such an awesome gift to receive. I am looking forward to swimming without losing contacts, riding without cleaning my contacts of grit and not having to watch a movie with one eye cried the other contact out earlier in the film. The staff is to be applauded for their patience with me, and their wonderful humor. From Karen to Alex to Laura to Dr. Hoff to Stuart and Krista- all made me feel so well taken care of. And there is no way I can express my appreciation of Dr. Caster's skill enough. Thank You!!
Jennifer Doubleday – Actress
Thank you so much Dr. Caster! The operation was quick and easy. I could see perfectly within a few days of my surgery. I now have 20/20 vision. My life is so much easier now than with contact lenses. I highly recommend Dr. Caster to anyone who wants to have the laser surgery.
Jeremiah Bosgang – Before Caster: TV Hack
After Caster: Internationally Renowned Male Model
Okay… My modeling career hasn't taken off yet, but it's only been a few hours since my procedure. I feel great.. The process was painless (thanks in large part to the wonderful staff here at the Caster Eye Center) and I'm very, very happy with the results.
Although now that I'm seeing so clearly, I'm giving more serious consideration to getting hair-implants. And maybe a nose job. A lilt collagen in the lips, perhaps and of course, a few liposuction treatments…
Andrew Tsao – Director
I was nearsighted, astigmatic and afraid. Dr. Caster and his staff cured me of all of the above, almost in "the blink of an eye." My gratitude is as boundless, clear and bright as my new perfect vision. Thanks!
Mark Child – Urban Planner
The whole experience was very simple and painless. It's the day after and my eyesight is as good, maybe better, than yesterday with glasses. My thanks to everyone at the Caster Eye Center.
Maria Tallent – Manager
A big thanks to Dr. Caster and his great staff! I have been pretty blind since I was a kid, always dependent on my glasses and then contacts. It was a fantastic feeling waking up this first morning after the surgery and being able to see perfectly. There was no pain and the procedure was very short. I recommend Dr. Caster to anyone who is tired of wearing glasses or contacts!
Alison Brown – Grad Student
The procedure was so fast and easy. I was really nervous, but it really helped me to watch someone else have the surgery first. I've worn glasses since the 3rd grade and it is a true miracle to be able to see clearly, and I'm writing this the day after my surgery! I'd recommend this procedure to any one who, like me, couldn't wear contacts and was getting sick and tired of being so dependent on their glasses.
Kyle Donnelly – CPA-Accountant
It's been 23 years since I've been able to see past my elbow without lenses in my eyes or lasses on my face. This is a wonderful feeling to have such wonderful doctors and staff give me this gift. The benefits of this procedure can't be measured in dollars and the wonders I will experience by seeing my world without contacts or glasses have only started to be realized. I would recommend this procedure to anyone, and have a half dozen co-workers waiting to gear how great and easy this was. They're all going to be told there is no better place to come and no better people to see than the one's here at the Caster Eye Center. Thank you Dr. Caster and your entire staff!!
Laura Tiffany – Homemaker
I have worn contacts for the past 15 years and had grown use to the morning regime of putting in and taking out my lenses. The hassle of my lenses folding up on my eyes, losing them, dirty lenses, etc… I am now free of all that! It's a miracle. I can see. Now when I wake in the middle of the night to take care of my babies I don't have to fumble around for my glasses. Thank you so much this is a life changing experience.
Robin Kaufer – Attorney
I know it sounds trite, but it felt like a miracle when I woke up and could see the clock this morning-less than 24 hours after surgery. The whole experience was far less traumatic than I had feared. It truly was the "Piece of Cake" described to me. Dr. Caster and his staff are extremely professional and congenial, putting me at ease about the procedure. (Thank you for your wicked sense of humor.) Another satisfied Patient!
Kristin Hornburg –
Finally, at the age of 44 I can see the way I know I was always meant to be able to see! I've worn glasses since the 3rd grade, which got progressively thicker over the years. You can't even consider vanity when you're sentenced to wear coke bottles! And contact lens, I had to give them up a year ago. Even in my youth I've had nothing but trouble, with lenses. But now I am completely free-it's a miracle, Really. I used to worry (before the procedure) that if something happened during the night-like a major earthquake ( who can forget Northridge ?), I'd end up wondering around in the dark, unable to find my way. You run first and look for your glasses later, you know. Now I feel safer-another wonderful benefit of having good eyesight! As for the procedure itself, I've truly had facials that were more uncomfortable. It is remarkably easy, and Dr. Caster and his staff keep you feeling very safe, very confident throughout the short procedure. (It takes longer to get to the parking garage than to have the Lasik procedure) Thank you Dr. Caster, thank you everyone at Caster Eye Center. I love getting up every morning and being able to see everything!
Kathy Bronte-Hughes – Mom/Teacher
I can't even express all the joy and happiness I feel all the joy and happiness I feel after having the surgery. It is a miracle. It was one of the best things that has ever happened (after the birth of my children). I am so pleased. I had the surgery a month ago and out of habit-Instill reach for my glasses. The freedom is great. I am thankful…every day!!! Thank you Dr. Caster and staff. This is the best gift I could give myself. Thank you!
Mel Lindsey – Investment Portfolio Manager
FANTASTIC, I am 36 years old and I have worn contact lenses or glasses since I was six. After my surgery I was able to see 20/25 the next day. This is truly a miracle. God has blessed Dr. Caster with a wonderful talent. The staff here is head and shoulders above the competition. I shopped around and found the staff here to be very caring, accommodating, and sympathetic to my fears. Thank you so much, you're truly a treasure in the city of Angels.
Edelita De Boda – Physician Assistant
This was a thoroughly amazing experience!! No pain was involved whatsoever and the results are miraculous. After 15 years of contact lenses I can't believe that it's all over. Last night I put all my contact lens solutions and preparations aside for my sister. Aside from my education this is the best thing that I've ever done for myself. Whoever has the need and the means for Lasik and Dr. Caster and still hesitates is CRAZY. There is absolutely no need for any apprehension, take it from me.
Christy Payne – Student
Thank you to a wonderful staff for making a nerve racking experience easier. I was nervous of how I would see after the procedure but WOW. I am seeing 20/15 the next morning. I would and will recommend the Lasik procedure to everyone and definitely refer them to this center. Thanks for the wonderful gift of vision!
Heidi Nord – Wardrobe Assistant
Words cannot express how happy I am and how wonderful I feel to have perfect vision and not be a prisoner to glasses any longer. The procedure was 100% painless-the staff is so professional and caring. Lasik is a miracle and Dr. Caster is a "miracle worker". Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I will recommend Dr. Caster and the Caster Eye Center to anyone I know (or meet) who is considering the possibility of not wearing contacts or glasses anymore. Thanks A Million.
Douglas Graham – Architect/Consultant
Very service oriented, pleasant and professional team. I felt everyone knew their jobs and how to work with all types of people, and enjoyed doing it. The office environment is comfortable without being ostentatious. Dr. Caster's calm confidence inspires confidence in his patients. Dr. Slivar is a bundle of positive energy and Diane Sylvester, a calm and soothing counselor. My thanks to all for a first class experience. Oh…by the way…I can see great now too!
Elizabeth Tyler Gallion – Interior Designer
My experience at the Caster Eye Center was a wonderful one. The time they spent on me with questions, examinations, etc… was more than generous. Everyone there is kind and knowledgeable. I felt unbelievably comfortable, considering I am the type of person who passes out when I get my finger pricked. I have never liked going to the dentist, eye doctor, or any other doctor because of anxiety-my tension was at ease here. The procedure was quick and pain free. I had absolutely NO discomfort. I can see 20/20 today, that is amazing! I would encourage anyone who is thinking about the surgery to not think twice about it and go for it. It is the most exciting thing I have ever done. Thanks to everyone in the office and your fantastic attitude and support.
Joanne Davis – Secretary
Everyone seems to care for you as a family member. Even though I was terrified at first, everyone make me feel so much more comfortable. After speaking with everyone, and asking the same questions over and over, I was very comfortable. VERY FRIENDLY! I can tell everyone loves what they do. Dr. Caster, in my opinion, performed a miracle for me, because I've never known what it was like to see without glasses/contacts. "I praise him and his wonderful staff." Thank You!
Lisa Lessa – Producer
This is Fabulous! I don't have to ask my husband what time the clock says in the morning anymore!! YAY!! Dr. Caster, Dr. Hoff , Alex, and EVERYONE are great.
Brad Cafarelli – Publicist
Amazing! Everything handled with TLC. No problems or discomfort-back to work the next morning. Definitely 2 thumbs up for Dr. C and the gang (esp. Dr. Hoff and Patty). Thank you!
B.C. – Nurse Practitioner
After a few years of debating the risk/benefits of corrective eye surgery, I got finally convinced to have the Lasik procedure done. Having visited several offices and talking to many professionals in the field, I felt most comfortable to have my eyes corrected by Dr. Caster. Every contact from the beginning to the end of the office visits at the Caster Eye Center was professionally excellent and friendly. The surgery went quick, smooth, and painless. The recovery was shorter than I had expected and the results are "phenomenal"! I had been wearing full tine corrective lenses since age 6, now I am only wearing "cool-looking" sun glasses" without correction. This is a great feeling!
Peggy Carl – Swim Coach
First, I was excited. Then, I was nervous. Now, I am so unbelievably happy, I can hardly stand it! This is, without a doubt, the coolest thing ever. As the Nike folks say- JUST DO IT!!
Carolyn Giss – Marriage and Family Therapist
Dear Dr. Caster, My surgery was six days ago. I am very happy with the results. I never experienced any pain or extreme discomfort. The day after the procedure I only felt the mildest feeling of discomfort. I followed the after care instructions and all went well. As far as your office staff, they were extremely professional, friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. I was very well prepared in the actual surgery because my son had it done a month before. Also, the staff explained everything that was able to happen and I was able to watch the surgery before mine. Thank you for such a wonderful result and making the whole experience pleasant. I have already referred several of my clients to you.
Erica Hart – Interior Designer
I am thrilled-reading the paper work was far more scary than the procedure. It was so fast I cannot believe I waited so long. The staff was wonderful and kind-and certainly explained everything clearly and answered all of my questions. Since all my friends were using me as the guinea pig-I can hardly wait to drive them in and have my friend's glasses free too! Thank you, Thank you
Jessica Hammond – Admin Assistant
Dear Dr. Caster and staff, Thank you so much for this amazing procedure. I was very nervous going in but the staff and Dr. Caster are so helpful and answer any questions or concerns you might have. The results are absolutely incredible and I know it still hasn't ht me that I now have better than 20/20 vision. Everyone was wonderful and I would never recommend going and place else. Thank you Dr. Caster and staff.
Lisa Nash-Jones – Make-up Artist
My eyesight is even better than I thought. The staff is outstanding. I have many friends that I will recommend to the Caster Eye Center. I can't believe my eyes!!! Thank you soooooo much.
Reid C. Harrison – Mechanical Engineer
It's great to see! I've debated getting Lasik for several years. When I finally made up my mind, it was clear that the surgeon must have much experience and good statistical results. The people at Dr. Caster's Eye Center are very kind and, more importantly to me, very frank and clear about the surgery, and the risks. The surgery was quick and fairly painless. Aside from a slight ache (for a couple of seconds in my left eye), there was no pain at all! I popped a pain pill and slept for about 20 hours… When I awoke I had 20/15 vision, WOW! I'm going hiking today… Yee ha!
Edward Wleczyk – Creative Director, Warner Bros
I'm in complete and total shock! I've always had bad vision, and being an artist, contacts and glasses have always been a problem, but now, a day later I have 20/20 vision. Incredible!
Pamela Cox Mason – Bookkeeper/Singer
Thank you so muck for my perfect 20/20 vision. I guess I have never had such great vision as I don't recall ever seeing this well. 45 seconds on one eye, 30 seconds on the other and wallah!! Believe it or not I was on stage that night singing with your super cool goggles. I really did not feel anything. I'm so amazed. Thank you Thank you Thank you. I also wanted to comment on how organized your office is. Everyone is so efficient, friendly and educated on the process. What else can I say? You've given me the gift of sight and I greatly appreciate it. P.S. I can still read close. Yeah!!
Joanna Todd – Attorney
I chose the Caster Eye Center because Dr. Caster had an excellent reputation and his staff seemed very professional. The procedure was very s8imple and there was no pain whatsoever. I woke up this morning and had no need for my glasses. Amazing! Thank you.
Loretta Peterson – Mom and Manicurist
This is the best decision ever. I waited well over a year, before finally gearing about Dr. Caster. His record really speaks for itself. He is amazing and his entire staff as well. I had my procedure yesterday and I can't believe how well I can see today 20/25. Don't hesitate, just do it. It will change your life. Thank you so much.
Becky Fish – Corporate Accountant
From "blind as a bat" to 20/20 in a day… I keep looking around and saying Wow! I keep thinking that I need to take out my contacts before I go to sleep… then I remember, no more contacts!
Harold Mac Kenzie – VP Software Development
After wearing glasses and contacts for over 25 years and putting up with the pain and in convenience. It is totally awesome to finally be free of them. Now when I go to the beach, I don't have to worry about being slammed by waves I couldn't see. Dr. Caster and his entire staff made the process a cake. They did an excellent job of answering all my questions, explaining the process, and making me feel at ease. I will definitely recommend this procedure and Dr. Caster to all my friends and acquaintances.
Justine LaBrucherie – Project Manager for Web Development
I've been wearing glasses since the age of 16. Due to allergies, I never could wear contact lenses successfully. The Lasik is amazing- no pain, quick, and I can see! For the first time in twelve years I am able to watch television, drive, and sit at my computer without glasses! I can't wait to play tennis again, just to see the difference! Thanks so much!
Michael Cone – Computer Consultant
What an amazing experience!! It is like being given a chance at a new life. I was driving the day after the surgery, all I wanted to do was look at everything around me. Things I thought I had seen before I really hadn't. Leaves on trees were clear in amazing detail, flowers were more beautiful than ever. I feel like a child again!!
Jaime Misher – Talent Agent
Prior to my surgery the E on the chart was hazy and now the day after my surgery I am seeing 20/25. Thank you so much for this wonderful gift… I feel like I am 10 again. Thanks again… I will recommend you to the world.
Ethan Anderson – Management Consultant
I have to admit that I was pretty nervous going in, but like everyone promised, it turned out great. It has only been 1 day and I already feel like I'm walking around with my contact lenses in. The fact that the surgery was successful is a testament to the conservative, professional, and supportive style of Dr. Caster and the entire staff of the Caster Eye Center. Everyone was friendly, honest, and encouraging from the consultation through the follow-up. I am deeply appreciative to everyone involved.
Cheryl Johnson – Payroll Coordinator
I've been wearing lasses since I was in the second grade. So it was a life changing experience when I was able to have this procedure. Dr. Caster's ethics and expertise gave me the confidence and assurance that I was in the best of care. I highly recommend this procedure to anyone. Thanks to Dr. Caster and his staff. My whole life has changed forever.
Jules Radow – Retired
Dr. Caster: You and your staff are indeed the most professional and most caring I have ever encountered within the medical profession. I am confident that the results will be to my complete satisfaction and be assured that I would not hesitate recommending you to my closest friends. You and you staff are a credit to your profession!!
Marsha Radow –
Everyone at Caster Eye Center treated me with extreme care and kindness. They made the procedure very easy, as it was a difficult decision at first. It's strange not having o wear glasses any more but wonderful knowing that I can do anything without them. The whole procedure was quite easy and painless. I would recommend Lasik for anyone who does not to wear glasses or contacts. Thank you Dr. Caster, Dr. Hoff and everyone at Caster Eye Center.
Albert Cantu – Video Editor
This was an amazing experience that will change my life. The anticipation of the procedure was much worse than the actual procedure was much worse than the actual procedure. Dr. Caster's staff and fellow doctors informed me of every step. My only regret is I waited so long.
Douglas Griffith – Network Analyst
The entire staff at the office was extremely wonderful. There were no surprises, the staff prepared me for every step of the way. The surgery was quick and painless. The next morning I could see everything. I was reading every thing from my clock (which I couldn't see before) to the license plate on the cars on the freeway. I would recommend the procedure and this doctor any time.
Sean McCartan – LA Times, Plate Maker
I could just cry, but I can't stop laughing. I'm so happy that I want to stand on a mountaintop and scream. But first check out the view. Thank you Dr. Caster and crew. You're all the greatest.
Lillian Hahm – Staffing Coordinator
Well managed, professional office. Personal and friendly. No waiting for your appointment. Quick, easy, out in no time. I have already recommended Dr. Caster to four people.
Kirk Marcolina – TV Director
The Lasik operation was much easier than I expected. It was less painful than a regular eye exam. My vision is better than 20/20 one day after the operation and that's from 20/700 yesterday.
Catherine Kurstin – CPA
I am amazed at both the fantastic results of the surgery (20/20 vision) and the ease and quickness of the procedure. I was extremely nervous going into the surgery, yet it was over before I knew it. Dr. Caster and his assistants were wonderful and explained everything in detail many times before and again during the surgery. I am thrilled with the results, and would recommend Dr. Caster and his office to anyone.
Ryuko Nagayasu – Clothing Company Owner
This is what I've been longing for! The next day after I had surgery, I've got 20/20 vision. Wonderful World! I was a little nervous until I had surgery, but Dr. Andrew Caster and all the staff are very nice and friendly. That made me comfortable. Thank you very much for everything and everybody!
Cynthia J. Solomon – Legal Secretary
(Almost 2 mos. After surgery) my experience with Dr. Caster, his staff and the Lasik surgery was great. I was very comfortable during the procedure and confident that it would work and I'm not disappointed. It's wonderful not to have to deal with contacts and reading glasses. I now wear neither. It has simplified my life immensely and I would recommend everyone remotely interested at least get a consultation. Life literally looks much brighter now! Thank you all.
Pamela Grayson – Homemaker
The procedure was painless. All aspects were thoroughly explained. A care was professional and prompt. The results are extraordinary.
Karen Kim – Actress
I can't even begin to tell you how happy I am! I woke up this morning and thought I had slept in my contact lenses again! Dr. Caster and his staff made my experience so comfortable and pain free. It's truly a miracle that technology has made this possible. Thank you for giving me back my eyes and making my experience a dream come true!
Nathaniel Bush – Graduate Student
The procedure was fast and painless, and I'm now seeing better than I have in the last 15 years (even with glasses). My best-corrected vision was 20/25 before the surgery and now I'm seeing 20/15 in my right eye. I would recommend the procedure to anyone.
Justina Krakowski – Graphic Designer
When my dog put his paws on my bed this morning to wake me up, I looked over to see his beautiful brown eyes. Though this seemed like an average morning for him, it was a brilliant day for me. The gift of sight is one of the most important aspects of life, and I'm so thankful to be able to live my life to the fullest. To be able to see all the beauty in this world makes me feel as if a big mask has been taken off my face. Thank you Dr. Caster -for you gentle hand, positive outlook, and experience.
Greg Giss – Attorney
From start (website) to finish (perfect vision!) getting Lasik at the Caster Eye Center was one of the best/smoothest experiences of my life. The staff is incredibly personable and well informed, and I always felt like I was the most important person in the building. Likewise, Dr. Caster's calm presence and incredible skills are incomparable. I don't know how else to praise Dr. Caster and his staff except to say this: Thank you for being the best!
Jeremy Wallace – Journalist/Actor
Yesterday, I couldn't see anything without my glasses, today I see 20/15 without!!! I was extremely nervous going into the surgery, but the staff here made me feel at ease, and it was over with before I knew it. Words cannot express how it is to be free from glasses and contact lenses. Everything is so clear and I'm thankful to Dr. Caster and everyone here for giving me my sight back after wearing glasses for 20 years. It was the best thing I could have ever done for myself, and I'm glad that I had the best doctor for it. If you are sitting in the office looking at this in a binder contemplating Lasik, do it. I can't suggest it more, there's nothing else like it. I CAN SEE!
John Perry – Attorney
Everything about this procedure (Lasik) was handled as professionally and pleasantly as I could have imagined. The staff and Dr. Caster were all an absolute pleasure and I would recommend the Caster Eye Center to anyone considering Lasik. My post-op experience was also as smooth as I could have hoped. I am excited to not have to deal with corrective lenses, solutions and hassles from this point on- the freedom and quality of being in clear focus with the world around me w/o worrying about corrective material is a thrill. Thanks to everyone at the Caster Eye Center!
Jackie Robbins –
I was so nervous on the day of the procedure. The staff was great with me and kept me calm and glued together. The procedure was so fast that it was over almost before I had a chance to be scared. I went home, took a nap and basically slept the rest of the evening. The most amazing part was waking up the next morning and being able to see everything! I can't believe I waited so long to do this. I would tell everyone I know to do this- it's liberating.
Raul Paniagua – Accountant Assistant
Dr. Caster and his staff are definitely the best. The surgery is completely painless. My sight is now 20/20 after the second day. I could see better as soon as he finished the procedure. I only regret not having it done before. Thank you Dr. Caster.
P.S. I will recommend Dr. Caster to everybody I know that wears glasses.
Marc Weinman – Student
As with any invasive vision procedure, I was a bit apprehensive about having Lasik surgery. However, 2 days post-op, I'm extremely pleased with the results, with my apprehensions being alleviated. Statistically, Lasik has a very low rate of complications, but they cease to become low when they happen to you. After taking extensive measurements and thorough eye examinations, Dr. Caster was aware of my concerns. He reviewed my case, and assured me that he wouldn't even recommend my having the procedure if he didn't think I was an ideal candidate able to undergo the procedure free of complications. Dr. Caster, Dr. Hoff, and the rest of the staff have proven to be extremely competent. Having undergone the procedure themselves, they were all so understanding to the needs of their patients. The procedure itself was quick, recovery time minimal, and results exemplary. I feel as if I'm seeing with contacts, only they're not there. All factors taken into account, I'm pleased I made the choice to trust Dr. Caster and his associates, and I would recommend anyone considering the Lasik procedure to consider the Caster Eye Center without reservation.
Kym Wulfe – Attorney
Remarkable what modern technology can accomplish. One day post-op and I'm seeing 20/25. Initially, I was terrified to have the surgery (even after numerous friends had explained that there was no pain involved), but in retrospect, it was a breeze. A quick fix that produces amazing results. Thank God I can ditch the glasses and contacts. Thanks to all involved.
Melanie Montaillier – Manager
The procedure was very easy and painless. I can see better than I have ever been able to before (with glasses or contacts). Dr. Caster and all of the staff were helpful and very nice and understanding. I am very thankful to have found a doctor who took the time to wait to do the procedure until it was the right moment for my eyes.
Renee Kim – Graduate Student
I have worn glasses and contact lenses since I was ten years old. Having t depend on something to see put an extreme hindrance on my daily life. I could not even wake-up in the morning to see what time it was without putting my glasses on. Having the Lasik procedure has put my life in a new perspective. I feel as though I have been given another chance to see life in a crisper and cleaner way. I thank God and I thank Dr. Caster and his exceptional staff and doctors. Every single person that I came in contact with at the Caster Eye Center treated me with the utmost care and kindness that I have ever experienced in my life. The whole experience was a positive and memorable one. I have already recommended two of my friends to come here just as my sister recommended me to come here as well. Thank you again as words can't express my gratitude!
Kinter Atkins –
Dr. Caster is a dream maker, that is all I have to say. I have dreamed of being able to see so well without the use of any aids, and now it has come true! My thanks to all!
Catherine Bardo – Investment Banker
I can't believe that I can see so well. The procedure was painless, uncomfortable when the flap is made, but that's it. My eyes were watering last night and sensitive to light. I took a nap from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. and the tearing and light sensitivity was gone. My vision is not perfect, but almost perfect and I expect it will be perfect after a recovery period. Thank you to all the doctors and scientists who made this procedure possible and available.
Krismar Zahringer – Artist
Having worn contacts/glasses for 30 years, I had resigned myself to the fact that that would be my lifestyle for the rest of my life. Then I discovered Dr. Caster! After meeting with him, reading his book and literature, I realized that seeing clearly (in my case after the procedure 20/20) without the aid of contacts or glasses could be a reality. Most people are very apprehensive about having anything done to their eyes, and I was no exception. Dr. Caster and his entire staff were so reassuring and understanding about that fear that I felt immediately relaxed and felt confident in my decision to have Lasik surgery. The surgical process and the recovery process were exactly as described-quick and painless. Words are inadequate to thank someone for the gift of perfect vision, but that's all I can say. Thank you, Dr. Caster! I'll probably be thanking you everyday of my life as I open my eyes and see!
Barry Rosenberg – Pilot
I had Lasik surgery on both eyes yesterday. I had absolutely no postoperative discomfort. My vision improved from approximately 20/200 to 20/30 this morning of my next day follow up appointment. I am hoping for gradual improvement to 20/20, but this is the first time in 20 years that I could recognize someone before they were a few feet away, without my glasses or contacts. I am extremely pleased. Thanks, Dr. Caster.
Jonathan Tanzman – Casting Director
Dr. Caster- you are a g-d! A miracle man! I felt like I was blind since the fourth grade. Glasses, contacts- I hated them! The cases, the drops, having to have sunglasses with a prescription, glasses, goggles with prescription, etc., etc. It was the BIGGEST hassle of my entire life. Now, in a matter of hours, my whole life has changed- seriously, I feel a sense of freedom. I really worked!! You and your staff were the nicest staff I've ever had. Never have I met such a group of wonderful people, who are truly sincerely, good human beings. Patricia, Dr. Hoff, Veronica, and Cindy were so caring and understanding. Veronica spent so much time with me talking about my fears, what to expect, and life in general. I loved her attention. Dr. Hoff was the best! I can see now and recommend it to everyone. I feel like a pro now. I want to let everyone know that it's ok to be scared, but everything will be all right. Thanks.
Jill Franks – Graphic Designer
What a wonderful experience (that will last, hopefully, for the rest of my life!). Dr. Caster's office is clearly one of excellence. I visited four different doctors before selecting Dr. Caster's office. Everyone on the staff made me comfortable- from carefully explaining each step, answering my questions and even letting me hold Winnie the Pooh to keep me relaxed. I thoroughly researched different doctors, offices and equipment. Dr. Caster's office maintains the most modern equipment and the highest quality of personnel. Now I'm going to bring my father and brother across the country so that they can wee without their glasses. I have fatal confidence in Dr. Caster and his staff. P.S. It doesn't hurt (and I'm a wimp when it comes to doctors).
Robert E. Wright – Corporate Vice President
The team at Caster Eye Center have the latest and best equipment and training. This was the largest reason why I chose to have Lasik surgery here. When it comes to your eyes, it does not make sense to cut corners, or to be cheap, Your vision is the most important of your senses, and you deserve toe best. Less than 24 hours after my procedure I am 20/20. I'll never have to worry about glasses again. Thanks Dr. Caster
Traci Feldman – Full Time Mom
Although it has only been one day, I can already see things that would have looked like "BLOBS" had I not had on my glasses. The office staff here is wonderful, making this experience an even easier one. The procedure was a quick one and I would do it again in a heartbeat. Thank you!!
Heidi Steinberg –
It is with great pleasure that I write this note of thanks. Today, less than 24 hours after my procedure, my vision is 20/25, I will continue to improve. Although I was nervous about Lasik, the entire procedure was painless and quick. The worst part of all: foggy goggles at night and crusty eye lashes in the morning. My deepest gratitude to all of you at the Caster Eye Center for making me comfortable and reassured throughout it all. I will highly recommend you to all!
Martin Klausner – Controller
2/1/01, 21 Hours after Lasik
Dr. Caster and his staff are the BEST! I investigated Lasik for two years prior to deciding to have the procedure, doing research on the many doctors and laser equipment. When I came to Dr. Caster for the evaluation, I knew he was the right choice. Everyone there could not have been more attentive. All my questions and concerns were responded to quickly, fully, and in a straightforward manner, always making sure to lay out the worst case scenario. This morning I read a newspaper at breakfast, without glasses! And it was all painless!! Caster Eye Center is the place to go.
Jola Harris – VP of Marketing
My experience from the beginning was spent surrounded by experienced, professional and a very pleasant staff. After my surgery, I was surprised at how much I could see, but obviously looking forward to waking up the next day and seeing 20/20. And I did! It's still a bit blurry, but they say it'll go away. I'm grateful for the opportunity to see without glasses. And can hardly wait until I can open my eyes underwater and take that first look around. Thank you Dr. Caster for giving me the chance to lead a new and wonderful life.
Julie Fink – Mom
Hurray! After wearing glasses for 30 years I am thrilled to be able to see without them. My experience at the Caster Eye Center has been wonderful. EVERYONE that I have encountered was thoughtful, caring, thorough, sensitive and understanding. The level of care I have received has been above and beyond anything I ever could have expected. Many thanks to each and every one of you who have helped to make this such a positive experience for me. I look forward to seeing you all in a month. Thanks again!!!
Marc Levine – Physical Therapist
Working as a Physical Therapist, I'm always trying to help people get over their injuries or make the most out of what they have. The best feeling I can ever have is to see my patients recover and do well - often times the results are not that dramatic. All I can say is that Dr. Caster must be a very happy man because he helps people in a very dramatic way each day. My apprehension has turned to joy as now I can see perfectly one day after my procedure. (I've worn contacts or glasses since I was 12). The staff was great, making me feel comfortable and confident and special the whole way through. My thanks to Dr. Caster and all his staff for this modern miracle and I wish all that have struggled with glasses and contacts to have the experience I had. If you're a candidate for this procedure, don't hesitate- you won't regret it!
Gail Goulet – Programmer
One day after my second eye, one week after the first. It's great to wake up and see without searching for my glasses; or to close my eyes for a short nap without worrying about taking out my contacts. I do a lot of camping and hiking. I'm really looking forward to my first backpacking trip without contacts, solution, glasses, etc. I am also looking forward to swimming in the ocean without worrying about whether I'll be able to find where I left my towel and glasses!
Elina Leal –
I have felt great since I had my operation. I can see better than before with contacts. My vision is so clear now, that it is a wonderful feeling! I am glad I had both eyes operated on and I feel 100% satisfied with my decision.
Candace Weiss – Airline Sales
This was a procedure I had considered for five year. I finally decided to do it. My eyesight was off the charts and I was tired of glasses for distance and glasses over my contacts to read anything. I never knew if I should look over or under whatever pair I was wearing. I had distance glasses, reading glasses, contact lenses, sunglasses, prescription sunglasses, sunglasses that fit over my prescription glasses, bifocals and drawers full of contact solutions. I travel a lot and if one of my contacts rips I needed to be sure to have glasses with me. I couldn't wear lenses on the airplane and it was a hassle to take them out and put them back before and after a flight. I decided to have the surgery and then someone told me a horror story about her husband's surgery. I was very nervous and almost changed my mind. Dr. Caster answered all of my many questions and we went ahead with the surgery. It was the best thing I could have done for myself. I am now 20/20 in one eye and 20/25 in the other. Since I am 50 years old I need reading glasses, but I am thrilled to be able to live a normal life and swim and drive and do whatever I was without depending on glasses or contacts. I am very happy that I made this choice.
Craig Jaffurs – Winemaker, Jaffurs Wine Cellars
My experiences with Dr. Caster has been nothing short of a minor miracle. After wearing eyeglasses since I was 12 years old, I now have great vision. I went out last night and looked up at the stars. They were clear and sparkling. I'd recommend this procedure and this medical group to anyone.
Cory Remick – Network Administrator
I first heard about doctor Caster through my co-workers. They had gone down and had the procedure done themselves and the results were astounding. I decided to go down and see whether or not I wanted it myself. After the 2hour exam I was concerned to hear that Lasik was an off label procedure, but since my co-workers didn't seem to have much trouble I decided to go ahead. The day came for my surgery and as I sat waiting for my turn to come I became nervous. I didn't know what would happen next. I just told myself that Dr. Caster is very competent that everything would be fine. They tried to explain every step before it happened but not knowing what was next made me nervous. When they did my second eye I was more relaxed because I knew what was going to happen. And now that they are both done I can see 20/20. I'm so happy now that I can see thanks to God and Dr. Caster.
Cantor Chayim Frenkel – Cantor
Words cannot describe the freedom and joy I feel from Dr. Caster's magical work. It is like I am wearing my glasses without actually wearing them. I can see as far as I like and feel so confident as a professional in the reading of music and seeing all the people in front of me clearly. Dr. Caster has a gift that he should bestow on all people who can benefit from this INCREDIBLE and PAINLESS and QUICK procedure. So many thanks for making my life more meaningful and joyful.
Judy Scott – Film Acquisitions
Overall, this was an extremely successful and beneficial decision for me. It is still amazing after 6 weeks to awaken in the morning and be able to see accurately and immediately. To have one's sight completely restored after 35 years particularly given the extremity of my prescription is remarkable. The surgery itself was painless and over very quickly. I was impressed with the professional attitude and behavior of the attending staff. Everything seemed geared toward assuring a routine and supportive experience. The recovery period was brief and relatively uneventful. My eyes occasionally felt dry and itchy-as if I had been wearing contact lenses for a long period-but they were never painful and I never had to take additional pain medication. I have recommended this procedure to numerous friends and acquaintances to date and would not hesitate after 6 weeks to continue doing so.
Robert Slater – Attorney
I had extremely poor vision prior to LASIC surgery. I had worn glasses and contact lenses since the age of 8. I am 47 years old. When I made the decision to have the surgery, I initially elected to do each eye separately. But as I learned more about it, I changed my mind and decided to do both eyes at the same time. I was moderately nervous the few days before the surgery. The actual surgery was much easier than I anticipated. The whole process was painless and took about 15-20 minutes. Dr. Caster and staff were extremely professional and understanding all the way through. I am writing this, 2 days post surgery. I have no pain. My left eye is a little irritated by not much. DI am driving without glasses and can see better than ever in my life. My vision is 20/25 in my right.
Karen Nelson – Housewife / Retired
Your eyes are your most prized possession and you want to make sure they are put in very knowledgeable hands. After a lot of research I can only tell you about my experience. This procedure is even easier than getting you teeth cleaned no pain and instant results. I could have gone very easily to someone in my own area to do the procedure but I chose Dr. Caster and his staff for his credentials and the way he presents himself. After about 30 minutes of being in the hands of Dr. Caster and his staff my friend Sue and I were treated like one of their family and we had known them for a very long time. They are all very warm caring people and they do care!! Through all the laughter and tears I find myself a new person and a very happy person who can see once again without the dreaded glasses. Thank you so much Dr. Caster and your staff too!
P.S. To quote Dr. Caster "Seeing is believing".
Jonathan Victor –
Surprisingly quick, miraculously effective, Lasik truly is one of the wonders of the late 1990's. Indeed, it's as if the millennium has come a few years early to Ophthalmology. The Caster Eye Center was with the precision and smooth efficiency of a fine Swiss watch. Everyone is friendly, courteous, and willing and capable of putting the most anxious patients at ease. From Dr. Caster to the technicians to the receptionists, everyone is acutely aware of how sensitive people are about their eyes, and that even though they as staff have been through the procedure thousands of times, this is the first time for each patient. I've known Dr. Caster for more than 12 years. I have always respected his abilities, professionalism and his calm reassuring manner.
Ruth Brown-Shorts – Customer Service Supervisor
After waiting years for this procedure, I cannot believe that it has finally happened. I have worn glasses since I was five years old, then graduated to both contacts and glasses. I am a very active person- body building, cycling, fitness walking swimming- just about everything but it was always so cumbersome with glasses or contacts. I was very frustrated because everyone told me that the surgery was too risky. I then read an article in shape magazine, which was written by Dr. Caster. I called, had my consultation and was very impressed. Dr. Caster and Dr. Hoff were very accommodating, professional and knowledgeable. I had the surgery done on 10/22/98. The procedure took less than 5 minutes and a new life was given to me. Immediately after I could see. I felt no pain and the feeling of being able to see was beyond my wildest expectations. This is my new birth!!! I personally recommend this to everyone. It is worth every penny of it. Actually I can go out and sell Lasik. No one was more frustrated with poor vision than I was. Right now I feel I can conquer the world. If I see any clearer than this, the universe will be in trouble!! No words can express my total gratitude!! The staff also gets a big thumbs up!!! Love ya all!
Misty Miranda – Student/Sales Associate
All I can say is, it's truly amazing. I highly recommend Dr.Caster. The procedure is simply, fast and successful. Before my eyes were so bad I couldn't even read the big "E". Now I have 20/20 vision and I can live my life without having the inconvenience of glasses. It's really amazing.
Larry Horowitz – Computer Consultant
My experience with Lasik surgery performed by Dr. Caster was mind blowing. My vision was very poor, about -6.20 in the left, and -2.00 in the right. I had RK in the right eye. My corrected vision was about 20/40. This operation was the shortest, easiest, and most painless operation that I ever had- yet it yielded the greatest benefit. In one day my vision has improved to about 20/25 and 20/30. There was no itching, no cloudiness after 2 hours- just excellent eyesight with zero side effects! Thanks a million.
Gary Ward - Real Estate Title Officer
It was the easiest thing I have ever done. Getting blood drawn is more traumatic. I woke up the next morning and could see better than I ever could with contacts. The next day there was no irritation or any pain. It was the best thing I could have ever done for myself. Dr. Caster is truly amazing.
Mady Stienberg – Teacher
Though I was nervous the day of my surgery (for no logical reason), I was immediately put at ease by Stuart and his upbeat personality. He joked around, explained the procedure again, and gave me a pill to relax. Boy, did that pill help. After that I felt great! Everyone was warm and reassuring. The surgery was swift and painless, and yes, I could see well immediately afterwards. I felt good for the rest of the day (my surgery was at 4:00) and went to bed early. I woke up with a crustiness on my lashes. Today I drove to work without my contacts- amazing! This afternoon I see even better. During the day I had to keep reminding myself that my contacts were not in. My vision was excellent. I'm thrilled to have treated my self to good vision. No more lasses, contact, solutions, and dry eyes.
Lynn Singer-Winer – Private Banking Officer
It is the BEST thing I've ever done. I'm so excited about it I want to tell all my friends who wear glasses, they have to get it done. Everyone on Staff was great
Joan Krieger – Interior Designer
Truly Amazing! The LASER procedure was the very best thing I ever did for myself! It is such a relief not to struggle with contact lenses…losing them, ripping them, rushing to put them in and out. Dr. Caster and his staff are the best! They made me feel welcome, comfortable and confident with my decision. I have told several of my friends about my improved eyesight and ease and I would highly recommend the easy procedure.
Camille Greenspan – Artist
My experience with Dr. Caster and his staff were absolutely wonderful. Each person I encountered was so professional and nice. I always felt so comfortable. The surgery was really a piece of cake. The surgery was explained in depth many times. Each of my questions was taken as a true concern- even the ones I thought were "stupid". The procedure did not hurt a bit- the only discomfort was when they pulled off the tape!
There was no discomfort or pain that day or thereafter. My eyes felt as if nothing had happened to them. I could see immediately and perfect distance vision the next day. It's a miracle! I really researched doctors and know I found the most confident doctor and office and office staff. Thanks so much.
Leora Sasson – Engineer
- Why Lasik? It became very difficult for me to wear glasses or contacts comfortably, so I began to research corrective surgery. I chose Lasik because ofit's relatively quick healing time and least painful procedure.
- As expected, I was very nervous on the day of surgery, though it was very helpful that I had done so much research and was very familiar with the procedure. Dr. Caster and his staff were very supportive and talked me through the entire procedure, so nothing was unexpected and I knew exactly what was going to happen and what it would feel like. There was no pain, though there was some discomfort during the forming of the flap. During the laser, you are never left in silence, which I found very comforting, Dr. Caster talked all the way through.
- After surgery, I was already able to see better, On the same day I could watch TV with out corrective lenses. I could even see the clock on the VCR. Today, the day after, I am seeing great, 20/30 from 20/400. And I'm told it will still improve.
- Dr. Caster and his staff are wonderful and really make the experience as worry-free as possible.
Fayez Al-Rifai – USC Student - Engineering
Well I want to say Dr. Caster is great and all the people that work here are excellent. Ever since I walked in they were outgoing and very helpful. Don't hesitate with any question, they are willing to answer. As for the operation, don't worry it doesn't hurt it was easy and I had high astigmatism. This is my second day and I feel great.
Kathryn Young – Casting
To the entire staff here- Thank you so much for your professionalism and outstanding care. I have too admit, I was very afraid but the staff reassured me and all I can say is that it was pain-free and very fast! I am free from glasses and contacts. I have perfect vision. You took great care of me. What a gift. Thank you.
Marc Schwartz – Financial/Investment Wholesaler
The entire process was extremely smooth and painless Dr. Caster, Dr. Hoff and the entire staff were professional and considerate. No detail was left unattended. I appreciate the cleanliness of the office and high level of personal attention I received. I would recommend Dr. Caster to anyone. My vision the next day was 20/15 and I had zero discomfort. Another success! Thanks.
Paul Lichtenberg – Movie Advertising
It works! I can see better now than with my glasses! This is truly revolutionary and someday (soon) everyone will do this without hesitation. Thanks again to everyone at Caster Eye Center… It's amazing!
Ann Eu – Chef
Dearest Darling Dr. Caster, Thank you Thank you THANK YOU!!! I am speechless!
I've never seen so well or smiled so much in my life! Thanks!
Karine Kanimian –
I am totally amazed at how painless this procedure was. I am thankful to every one at the caster eye center for being so professional, also for giving me the biggest gift I have received, my eyesight. I felt so happy this morning, I could not stop smiling. There are no words to describe the overwhelming joy. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone. Thank you Dr. Caster, you are the closest being to God as far as I am concerned!
Ted Arlauskas – Project manager
WOW! This is great! I can see 20/20 the nest day after the surgery. The surgery was quick and painless. This has been so terrific! Thanks, Dr. Caster and thanks to your wonderful staff!
Ernie Navarro – Meat Cutter
It's a great feeling not to use contact lenses to see. I feel free for the first time in years. The Caster Eye Center people are the greatest. Thank you.
Chris Petitt – Investment Executive
The next day I was totally amazed. I started wearing corrective lenses over 30 years ago and to see without glasses or contacts when I woke up was an experience I won't forget. Dr. Caster and his staff were very helpful in calming my initial concerns about having surgery on my eyes. I did a lot of research on the subject before I did it and Dr. Caster kept coming up as one of the best in the country and world. Also my own personal physician (who I trust immensely) referred him. I would recommend the procedure highly to anyone considering Dr. Caster. I believe the choice of the doctor is the most important variable in the decision.
Linda Abdun-Nur – Marketing Analyst
I have worn glasses since I was six years old. I was very frightened coming to have my eye exam but the people here are so caring they made the decision to have surgery a very easy one. The day of the surgery I was taken care of so well that I wasn't afraid at all! The next day my vision was 20/20! I was able to wear sunglasses for the first time in my life and it was great! I can't thank all of you enough! After visiting many different doctors I knew this was the only place to come. I will recommend Dr. Caster to all of my friends. Thank you for changing my life!
Kyle Christopherson – Media Relations/Actor
This procedure has been absolutely perfect. Everything I was told would happen did happen. The outcome is better than I would have expected! I'm not disappointed whatsoever. Your system for guiding people through this, from the initial consultation to the day after surgery, is exactly what makes this a comfortable experience. Thanks so much, and I will be sending others to you
John Scherer – Engineer
I underwent the Lasik procedure two weeks ago. My experience was zero pain. Approximately four hours after the procedure I felt a slight burning sensation, but nothing like the pain when a contact lens is dislodged or a piece of grit enters the eye. The sensation lasted approximately half an hour, but caused no tearing. I just relaxed and it went away.
Approximately five hours after the procedure there was no sensation at all except I do remember opening my eyes and being able to see across the room. It was amazing! The next morning I experienced the greatest joy by being able to see the clock, read the labels of containers on my bathroom counter, and make out faces across the room. I achieved 20/25 in one eye and 20/40 in the other. I highly recommend the procedure and there is no finer doctor than Dr. Caster, and that also includes his very professional staff.
Jung Kim – Student
The procedure was simple. I'm very pleased with how the procedure was explained so thoroughly by the nurses and the video, and even the doctor. All my questions were answered to my satisfaction. The actual procedure took a few minutes for each eye ( It may even be shorter because when you are having a surgery a minute seems a lot longer than it actually is). I think the only pain or discomfort I felt was the instrument that kept my eyes open so that I won't blink, and in the beginning I felt absolutely nothing. The laser felt like nothing at all and I'm up this morning seeing everything I was never able to see before. Overall it was a very easy, and convenient procedure.
Sondra Thorpe – Set Decorator
This was the most comfortable thing that I've ever gone through. I'm extremely happy with the results and annoying those around me by repeating- "I can read the clock". Everyone here is very professional and nice. It definitely completes the atmosphere. My big test will be my next job when I don't have to change my glasses constantly when I'm running in and out of various stores. I'm looking forward to it! Thank you everyone!
Sandy Slateritz – Secretarial Coordinator
I am completely thrilled that I can now see and drive without using glasses or contacts. I was referred to Dr. Caster by a co-worker, and I am so glad I took her advice. I have very dry eyes and also needed contact lenses put in my eyes during the procedure. This caused for pretty blurry vision during the next couple days after surgery until the lenses were removed. I'm happy to say the very next day after the lenses were out, I was able to drive myself to work-happily. The Caster Eye Center staff (ALL of them) are completely wonderful. If it wasn't for their attentive, friendly service, it would have been much harder to go through. Thank You VERY much!
Craig Mazin –
Dear Caster Eye Center:
First of all, hum Ode To Joy while reading this letter for full effect.
Lasik worked. It worked better than any other medical procedure has ever worked in my life. I can see perfectly. Every now and then, I remember that I had the procedure done, and I shake my head in wonder. Most of the time, though, it's forgotten. It's like I never needed glasses. And that's a great feeling. Now that I'm done complementing the true hero of this whole thing - the laser - let me say a few words about this alleged "Dr. Caster" and his office. This is the best medical office in America. No, I haven't been to them all, but I'm extrapolating. The place is run like a Swiss watch factory, everyone is extremely knowledgeable and friendly, the staff seems prepared at all times, there were no infuriating delays, mistakes, incompetence, etc.
The procedure is exactly as advertised. Painless. I'd prefer another Lasik by Dr. Caster to ripping a Band-Aid off. I'd prefer it to getting a throat culture. I'd prefer it to stubbing my toe, running out of Diet Coke or shaving. And I mean it. It's an A+. I have zero complaints. Nothing but praise. This may seem redundant in light of all the other testimonials you've received, but I assure you–I am one of the crankiest and hypercritical patients to ever walk through the door. Damn, Caster and co. You're great at what you do. I would thank you, but I've decided to pay you instead. You deserve it.
Happily, Craig Mazin
Elizabeth Lyster, M.D. – Physician (OB/gyn)
The whole Lasik experience here was great, from the consultation 2 months ago, to the afternoon spent here for the pre-op eval & the procedure. It was great to have so many clearly qualified people evaluate me & explain things to me. I really felt that I could just keep asking questions & have them cheerfully answered until I felt satisfied & secured. Most importantly, I felt very safe in the hands of Dr. Caster during the procedure I had been very well prepared for what I would experience by Diane, Dr. Hoff, & the technicians. The results were dramatic -yesterday I had -6.5 in my lift eye & -6.25 in my right, & today I see 20/20. I have to keep reminding myself that I don't have my contacts in. Everyone I know will be learning about Lasik at the Caster Eye Center. Thank you to everyone.
Erin Kenneally – Student
I started wearing glasses when I was 8 years old. My vision was really BAD! I couldn't see anything without my glasses. I had laser eye surgery in June if 1998, I was 19 years old. The surgery was easy and painless! It was over so quickly, I didn't even have time to be nervous! Now, my vision is perfect. I will never forget the first time I bought a pair of sunglasses! Everyone in my family has had the surgery with Dr. Caster, and we are all thrilled with the results! Thank you so much!
Stephanie Dones – VP-Project manager
I can't say enough about how great of an experience this was. I am so happy. Everyone working for Dr. Caster is wonderful. Everyone made me feel so comfortable and in the financial industry, I must say I wish we had the best of quality customer service that Dr. Caster's office has.
It is great to see without contacts. I feel so good. Thank-you very much.
J. J. Huang – Scuba instructor
I can't believe I just have surgery to my eyes! When I woke up this morning right after the procedure, I can actually see without reaching for my glasses, it is just simply amazing! A thousand thanks to everyone in Dr. Caster's staff and Dr. Caster himself. To me, this is nothing short of miracle! I just can't believe I can do scuba diving without dealing with contact lenses or prescription mask! Life will be so much easier from now on!
Wei Yao – Software Engineer
I will always remember this beautiful morning, Dec. 18th. When I woke up, I cried out that "Oh, I can see the telephone number on that bag!" Yes I can read that number" Caster Eye Center Tel: 310-274-1221!" I have been with my eyeglasses for more then 10 years and prescription is up to -8.00. I thought that thoses thock lews would be with me for all my life till this morning-everything changes suddenly! They are so clear, so natural, so vivid and they are coming by my own eyes! I hugged again and again with my boyfriend, that's kind of new start for a more beautiful mew life!
Thank you so much, Dr. Caster! Thank you, all of you in Caster Eye Center!
Sid Doshi – Scientist
Dear Dr. Caster & Dr. Hoff & staff,
Your office is such a comfortable & friendly environment- it took the edge off undergoing this procedure. Fast, easy, painless, comfortable, clean, neat, organized, quality tools & equipment- a pleasurable experience overall- are the memories I'll have about this experience.
Thank You, Sid
Katherine A. Steinberg – A very grateful patient
Oh my Goodness! You've done it, you've all really done it!
I don't think that a simple thank you is adequate to describe the gratitude I feel for what you have been able to achieve on my behalf. For the first time in over forty years, I am able to wake in the morning and see the world without the assistance of corrective lens. I am certain you hear this all the time but, what an incredible feeling this is!!!
Your wonderful staff, all smiles and gentle manners, greeted me and immediately put me at ease. Laura, cheerfully and patiently explained and answered all of my inquires about the Lasik procedure. The amicable Roman took me and examined and measured my eyes with all your space age equipment. Then, Dr. Hoff, who is nothing short of brilliant in his approach to discover and demonstrate just the right the balance of correction, gave me the much needed confidence to proceed. Miss Cindy, who readied me for the procedure, using her personal experience with Lasik surgery, put me in a frame of mind to deal with everything that was about to happen.
Then the master took over. Dr. Caster, in matter of seconds, you were able to free me from my normally blurry world and gave me a new wonderful view. I am truly indebted to you and your entire staff for my new outlook, so to speak. Thank you all soooooo much!
Fredy Alvarez – Realtor
I had a great experience with Dr. Caster. He has given my eyes back to me. I could not believe I was actually reading the signs on the freeway without my glasses. Thanks a lot to you Dr. Caster I will recommend all of my friends to you. Best wishes and Good luck!
P. S. if you need to sell your home or anybody in your staff please feel free to call at (818) 219-6749 I work on call and I do make house calls
Larry Berman – Attorney
I am a professional in a service business. I tell everyone with whom I come in contact with that I have never experienced service at this level. Additionally, although I had terrible to start with (-10 in both eyes), the very next day I had twenty-twenty vision.
To go from my vision to perfect vision the next day is truly amazing.
Denise Katz – Television; Manpower scheduler
This is phenomenal! I never thought about having eye surgery before a couple coworkers had it done. The minute I walked in I felt Comfortable and taken care of. Dr. Caster, Dr. Hoff and the ENTIRE staff were so nice, professional and informative my fears started to go away and the excitement started talking over. I never wondered what would happen next because everyone took such care in explaining the procedure. I can say with complete honesty I would not have done this any place else. I want to thank everyone-Laura, Melissa, Veronica, Cindy, Alicia, Diane, Roman, Patti, Dr. Hoff and Dr. Caster for my New eyes!
Barbara Garmon – Business owner
I'm more than pleased to add my testimonial to the thousands before me.
It's been less than 24 hours since my procedure and the results are 100% perfect Thank you all. It's been a pleasure.
Karen Ashkenazi – Buyer
I couldn't be happier being able to see when I wake up in the morning. The procedure seemed scary at first but after just going through it last week, I can sincerely say that I didn't experience any pain or discomfort. Dr. Caster, Sydney, Cindy, his staff …everyone was so supportive. They walked me through everything and there were no surprises.
I high recommend this to anyone considering it.
Thank you again for changing my life.
John Ross Bowie – Actor / Writer
The morning after the procedure, I got up at 6 am- before my toddler. Amd just wandered around the house, looking at stuff. Thank you thank you thank you for restoring my vision. After 25+ years of corrective lenses my only problem is that I now know how bad my handwriting is. Oh well....
Dana Gardner – Hair & Makeup Agent
Thank you to all the amazing staff at Caster Eye Center! I was very excited (but anxious) about my procedure but everyone made me feel so comfortable. There were no surprises and every part of the process was simple and pain free! Dr. Caster is so patient and nice and he answered all of my questions so by the time I was laying on the table I was totally at ease. Sidney was also super helpful with her emails with answeres to some of my questions prior to surgery. I'm so exited to see everything so clearly just one day after procedure! Its like magic! I can't wait to tell all my glasses or contact wearing friednds all about Dr Caster. I had the BEST experience. Thank you all so much !
Kristen Forbes –
Dear Dr. Caster & Associates,
Thank you for giving me not only great vision but a fantastic experience everytime I visit. From the very first consultation to my incredibly fast Lasik to each and every follow-up visit, this has been an amazing experience! The staff is fantastic and always very nice and welcoming! All my friends know that I am so excited everytime I have a visit to your offices and I let anyone who asks know that for the first time in 25 years (and I'm only 29) that I've got vision without glasses! Thank You! Thank you! Thank You! XO
James Weinberger – Illustrator
When i first heard of what you had done for my friends. I was intrigued, and decided to make Lasik a goal in my twenties... And Before too long I found of abandoning my glasses permanently.However,as an artist Iam very protective of my eyes, And I was admitted by terrified to allow the whole thing to take place.You've got a great staff surrounding you, a Golden Name (And some strange and wonderful drugs.) Simply put, It took only several hours post-surgery for me to appreciate your skill in your craft; and to be happy to have trusted you.....And that is what I would say to my friends with glasses: "you can trust andrew caster. Think this is the highest possible praise; thank you so much for new. Hawk eyes. [My life is beautifully changed.]
Tracy Davey – Camerman
I came to Dr. Caster thinking that I couldn't lave Lasik a second time. I was an early candidate, I had the procedure in 1997. Over time my distance vision had started to deteriorate. Working as a camerman on dark low lit sound stages - I was having to wear glasses again and it was tough. Thanks to Dr. Caster my sight is back and it feels great! Things are sharper than the 1st time around!
Dana Hanrahan – Teacher
Dear. Dr. Andrew Caster & Staff,
I can't thank you enough for the gift of sight! The morning after surgery I could see 20/20. No more contacts or galsses again! It has been amazing to wake up in the morning & actually see what is around me. I will recommend Andrew CAster to everyone I know. Caster Eye Center's staff were so kind, caring and just all around wonderful. They made me feel comfortable the day fo the surgery and through the whole process. Dr. Caster did such an amazing job. I felt little to no pain throughout the procedure as well as after the surgery. I will highly recommend Lasik to all my friends & family. Thank You, thank you, thank you Dr. Caster!!! I couldn't be happier with the results.
Georgia Mae – Bikini/Lingerie model
I was a young child when it was discovered that I had terrible vision - I was nearsighted and had astigmatism in both eyes. I went through years of wearing eyeglasses and contacts and waking up to a blurry world every morning. Glasses made me look funny and contacts made my eyes tired and red all the time. So, I decided to have LASIK surgery, and since these were my eyes, only the BEST would do.
I did a lot of research and Dr. Caster's name came up over and over again as THE BEST LASIK SURGERY DOCTOR. I went for a consultation. Dr. Caster and his staff were so thorough. I was examined and tested and the surgery explained to me in detail - step by step. I left with an education!
Ten days later, I had my LASIK surgery performed by Dr. Caster. it took less than ten minutes, no pain, and I got up from the table being able to see. Whereas I couldn't even see the large black E on the wall, I could now read the tiny letters on the bottom line - and this was the day after the surgery! Dr. Caster gave me my perfect 20/20 vision. He is truly an expert in his field, a master at his craft.
Dr. Caster and his staff are so skilled and knowledgeable, yet so personable, accommodating and compassionate. I have never been to a doctor's office that is so professional, organized and meticulous as they are! Two words - THE BEST! Thank you Dr. Caster.
Dawn Abrecht – Interior Designer
It was truly a miracle when the morning after my surgery, I reached for my cell phone on my bedside table (usually just a blur!) and was startled to see clearly - every number & letter!
I can read my computer easily & quickly now too!
My surgery was painless and the staff & the doctor took the utmost care in informing me on what to expect.
Helen Highberger – Student
Thank you Dr. Caster for a great experience! The up-front approach and personal touch from you and your staff was fantastic. And most of all, I am so delighted with my sight and the whole outcome of the procedure. Everything is turning out awesome!
