Real Patient Stories
I was born extremely nearsighted and required a -10.00 lens to see. Without the glasses I could only see faces at one foot away! I was truly dependent on my glasses to function in life. I eagerly monitored the development of LASIK surgery for vision correction for at least the last fifteen years until I found the perfect combination. Dr. Edward Rashid was the best trained surgeon I could find and he has the most state of the art equipment. I completely trusted Dr. Rashid to do this procedure for me without having complications and to achieve the best results possible. I am now "out of the fog" and have wonderful crisp vision without glasses or contacts. I can recommend his expertise without hesitation.

My initial exam began very promptly and was extremely thorough. The staff was exceptionally nice and answered all my questions. Dr. Rashid personally examined my eyes and impressed me once again with his straight forward honesty and integrity. I cannot emphasize enough the thrill of opening my eyes every day and night and being able to see- really see! Dr. Rashid is a wonderful doctor. I cannot thank him enough for being so honest with me, sharing the risks and rewards of this procedure, and then giving me the ability to see with my own two eyes!!
I chose Dr. Rashid because of his experience and reputation. I heard he had the Intralase and the Allegretto lasers, I also knew that he’s the Spurs ophthalmologist. During my exam he was candid about my options and made sure that the right laser was used for my case to correct for the right priorities. I can see inside my shower now, plus I can wear sunglasses! I like my new look!
I was impressed by Dr. Rashid's concern for my well being. His professionalism and patient-care-oriented demeanor were both excellent. His staff is very knowledgeable, helpful and courteous. I can see the alarm clock now, I have watched a movie and I’m driving at night with out glasses! I feel my surgery was the single biggest medical improvement and decision in my life.
Dr. Rashid came very highly recommended and I really enjoyed having him as my doctor. He has always been very thorough and I trusted him completely. The surgery center is very relaxing which is what you need the day of surgery. This has changed my life dramatically! I want to thank everyone involved for being so wonderful through this life-changing event!
The great staff, experienced technicians and the attention to detail and quality that Dr. Rashid brings made it an easy decision and a great experience. My new vision has exceeded my expectations.
Thanks again to Dr. Rashid and his highly qualified staff for giving me the gift of seeing clearly! I couldn’t be more pleased with the entire experience.
You have a very educated group; I felt that Dr. Rashid, Paula and Kim focused on providing the best results than receiving the dollar.
Technology with out the skills and experience of Dr. Rashid, Paula and staff is incapable of providing such great care and benefits. Thank you very much.
For me this was a very smooth procedure. Never felt any discomfort during or after surgery.
Dr. Rashid and staff and the entire experience itself was “top notch”.
Your technical staff is outstanding; Paula gave the best exams I’ve ever had. Dr. Rashid was very interested in the past history of my vision. He refused to do the LASIK until he was satisfied I was a good candidate. I have never seen better! In less than 48 hours the quality of my life has improved dramatically. It’s amazing. The most obvious improvement is my driving, I can judge distances better and I feel more confident. I wanted LASIK because I wanted to see. Even with glasses I only corrected to 20/25 in one eye and 20/40 in the other. I’m now 20/20 in both and never have to worry about being stranded by lost or broken glasses.
I want to say thank you to Dr. Rashid and Kim and everyone on staff for taking good care of my eyes and me. This was one of the biggest nerve wracking decisions I’ve ever made considering it was effecting my eyes and the staff made it as smooth and as pleasurable as possible.
I have no words to describe the emotions I feel every time I open my eyes and I can see clearly!
I have the utmost respect for Dr. Rashid. Two years ago he refused to perform LASIK on my eyes because of the high risk of large pupils and 20/800 vision. He had me wait two more years for technology to change and it was worth every minute!
Everyone was very friendly and professional. I can understand why they are so cheerful. They are part of a team that gives people the gift of sight!
I feel like I’ve been released from an 18-year prison of wearing trifocal glasses for farsightedness. Talk about being reborn with a great positive view of the world close around me. I’m so thankful I made the decision to have the surgery. I now have even a better quality of life!
