“I chose for Vision Ooglaseren because of their information during the preliminary examination. The doctor is an experienced surgeon. He works very thoroughly and only treats his patients when he knows he can help them and they will benefit from it. The information I received during the first meeting was very clear, and also allowed for enough time to ask questions. My layman’s impression of their equipment is that it looks very dependable and state-of-the-art. It took a while to get used to my ‘new’ eyes after the surgery, but it was definitely worth it!”
