Below is an email conversation between Dr. Allan Panzer and myself. Dear Dr. Panzer, I pleasurably give you my heart filled thanks for your "on the money" advise and recommendations concerning my decision of LASIK surgery. Obviously your plates full juggling Optometrist practice, expertise in court cases and various travel helping patient's in need. I feel quite honored and appreciative that a gentleman of such exquisite character scheduled time to provide professional but critical advise to me, someone you don't know and never met. Your actions and willingness to help sheds light on the true reason your a Physician, to help people, regardless of monetary gain or public gratitude. Taking your advise and armed with this email of your recommendations, enabled me to locate an Optometrist. His advise mimicked yours to a tee, he said, "with all of your previous issues, you should run not walk from any unnecessary surgery, including LASIK." Sound familiar? It should, you suggested the same, so, eyeglasses and contacts are my only option. Please understand the reason I contacted you, I have an advanced education but, my feeling of apprehension and unease were triggered when three Ophthalmologist assured LASIK was the answer. I truly don't want you to think I was a waste of your time. Doctor, your professionalism is astounding, your open arm policy is refreshing and your attitude is to the point. The Physicians oath you were required to take upon receiving your license to practice, I can honestly say, you walk the walk, not talk the talk. Thank you so much Doctor Panzer for everything. I guess there's no reason for me to call or schedule an appointment, your opinion was the key, I needed someone to trust, and that was you. We thank you again. Regards, S D Johnson Consulting Editor
Mi experiencia en Diagnostic Eye Center fue muy y muy positiva. En Houston hay una multitud de clínicas que practican esta intervención y elegir entre tantas no ha sido una tarea fácil. Pero no he lamentado ningun momento mi desición de operar mis ojos en la clínica de Dr. Sanders. Dr. Sanders y su equipo han sido muy amables y dispuestos de aclarar cualquer duda. La intervención ha sido tan rápida (aunque, claro, antes de someterme a ello sabía, que no duraria mucho, pero tampoco me imaginaba que iba a terminar tan pronto). Durante la intervención no experimenté ningun dolor ni tampoco alguna sensación desagradable. Por tener cornea muy fina no ha sido posible aplicarme Lasik, por lo que Dr. Sanders utilizó la tecnolgía PRK. Mucha gente que se ha sometido al mismo procedimiento suele decir que experimentaba dolores fuertes durante unos días después de la intervención. Mi caso no ha sido asi. Experimenté unos dolores muy moderados y solamente el segundo día después de la intervención. Este hecho creo que en mayor medida se debe al profesionalismo de Dr. Sanders. El resultado también ha sido muy bueno. Después de llevar las gafas casi durante 20 años , es un enorme alivio poder ver sin gafas y ademas ver mejor que antes con gafas!!!!! Es increible. Muchísimas gracias a Dr. Sanders.
Ok went to this place for the first time, mainly because it is a network provider for my insurance and second because it close by. I had my eye exam (got very good service at eye doctor next door, no problems there) well I took my prescription to visionworks. I ordered 6 months of contacts because I planned to get the other 6 months online, had to purchase some at this place in order for my insurance to cover eye exam. The price was ridicoulous and I ended up paying alot more than I expected. well I never received a call telling me they were in, so I went down 10 days later to check on them. When I got them, they were not what I expected. I received 3 boxes, 2 for one eye, and 1 box for the other, very odd, and they were larger boxes, thus the reason for the almost a hundred dollar a box price. And best of all, the one box I got for one eye was the wrong prescription by -100, was supposed to be -250, but I received -350. Not sure what to do since returning the one box that was wrong would probably mess up my insurance or confuse them even more (There were 3 people standing around doing nothing when I got them ), so i'm just going to use the two boxes for both eyes and donate the wrong box. Next year I will be going back to my original optical, Sears
