I truly appreciate the professionalism the office offers and will be sending anyone and everyone to Dr Dudee’s office for their vision correction needs. If you are looking to get LASIK eye surgery, your search stops here! After so many years of wearing glasses and contacts, I'm finally free and all thanks to him. He made the entire process feel very comfortable and everyone in his staff is wonderful. My mom had cataract surgery by Dr Dudee, my husband had PRK and my procedure was a couple weeks later with Lasik. I’m usually too busy (or lazy) to do reviews but your vision is important so if your eyes are in trouble and you need real expertise, this is the place to go!
I got my procedure done about a year ago as a Valentines gift.
The procedure itself took about 5 mins I want to say. The doctor is friendly; he has a good personality and answers all your questions. He explains everything as he is doing it, which is really helpful. Right after the procedure you do not see 20/20 (I didn't at least). I remember my eyes started stinging like I was cutting onions but I couldn't touch my eyes. When I got home I went to sleep for 4 hrs and when I woke up things were still a bit foggy but I could see!
My boyfriend still looks hot! LOL!!
I had super severe astigmatism in one eye (other eye was just average blind), so glasses weren't really an option because the lenses would be so unbalanced .
I tried wearing one hard contact and one soft lens but it seemed to just make me dizzy and gave me double vision (when it wasn’t moving around all over the place).
So I'd been getting by with basically one eye. Recently I noticed I had trouble seeing the score in the Wildcat games on TV (and I have a big TV!!), not that the scores were anything to brag about right then.
I noticed that my good eye seemed to be getting more achey and tired as time went on. Both eyes would water when I tried to squint at the TV – and no, it wasn’t because of the score!
I was petrified about eye surgery, but knew I couldn’t keep straining my eyes any longer, so I finally pulled up my big boy pants and called to schedule the appointment for the initial consultation (which was free by the way!). Dr Dudee evaluated me and he was thorough and patient in explaining to me the condition of my eye, my options, etc. He never seemed rushed or uninterested. He talked to me in detail to make sure my expectations were realistic. The really bad eye needed PRK and my other eye was OK for LASIK. I knew immediately that I wanted to go ahead with the surgery and that he was the doctor to do it. I had both procedures on the same day. The PRK eye took a bit longer to get its proper vision but the final outcome was mindblowing! I saw things I never knew I wasn’t seeing before! ,A few weeks after the surgery I got my corrective lenses restriction taken of my driver license.
I had been thinking about LASIK but putting it off for years and years even though my eyes were in horrible shape. I had BIG TIME astigmatism in both eyes and my eyes have always been soooo DRY. I couldn’t even wear the daily disposable contacts. I admit I had abused them when I was young and foolish thru my 20's but still didn't look into Lasik until my mid 30's due to fear! Dr Dudee and his staff really took me by the hand and treated me gently. Boy do I wish I’d done it earlier! It was quick and painless and now I have wonderful vision – especially for night driving, something that my job depends on! I feel a whole lot better, much safer and am so thankful!
I did my research- both on the internet and talking to some doctor friends and short listed a few places (including Dr. Dudee). A few weeks later a friend told me she just had her eyelids done by Dr Dudee and she looked great, so I decided to seize the day and went in to have my LASIK evaluation when she had her post-op visit.
I honestly didn’t know there was so much information to take in about the procedure (I am type A and like to be fully informed). I watched the video and read the fine print very carefully.
Jennifer the lasik nurse was very thorough and friendly. She ran a number of tests, questioned history, etc. Then I met Dr Dudee and he continued the same but explained the two different options between PRK and Lasik.
Fast forward a week later - the actual procedure was very short and easy. Dr Dudee and his staff made everything wonderfully efficient and NOT scary. I now have a 20/20 vision - I know because I check it at home (Did I tell you I was type A?) I'm so grateful for it! Thanks Dr Dudee& staff
The doctor talks to down to the women who come in there. He also is very mean to his workers. It was my first time going and when he got in the room and didn't say hi or anything and acted like he was in a rush and had no time for me. Then he asked me why I only had contacts and didn't have glasses. I told him I did not have money to purchase glasses and his answer was, " Well that doesn't matter, you need glasses as well." He also right in front of me told the worker that she wrote down the wrong number for my contacts.
