"Lasik was not something that i ever thought would be an option as it never was for my astigmatism and far sighted vision issues. New technology made something i never thought possible a possibility. This was the easiest thing ever. From what i expected was that it was suppose to be a slow progression and will continue to improve over next 6 weeks. I am already mind blown by how it has gone and how well I see. No glasses and I see better than I ever did with glasses...lol. Best Doctor, team, and experience. I HIGHLY Recommend everyone using Chu Vision Institute for all ete care needs. You will not regret it. Thank you!"

"From the day I walked in for my consult to the day after surgery and my first post-op, Chu Vision provided nothing short of a stellar experience. After 30 years of my life spent wearing glasses and 27 years with contacts, my vision stabilized and I was referred to Chu Vision. LASIK has been something I've wanted for many years but will be the first to admit my gut was wrenching with anxiety the entire month leading to the procedure after weighing the pros and cons of eye surgery. Browsing the internet and learning about side effects: glares, halos, starbursts...didn't exactly help my anxiety. Don't get me wrong, without glasses or contacts, I could barely make out the big E in the eye doctor's office. If anyone broke into my house, if a contact fell out while swimming, if something happened to my contacts/glasses on vacation...I'd be screwed. I wanted to be free. My 1:1 prior to surgery with Dr. Chu definitely put me at ease. The entire staff at Chu Vision is extraordinary...something you wish for at any service-related business. They calmed my nerves, walked through every step, answered all my questions, advised me how to prepare and what to truly expect afterward. The day of surgery was quick and absolutely painless...no pain at all, and my entire time at the office was 45 minutes. The actual procedure was less than 10 minutes. Dr. Chu provided an amazing surgery and turned my -6.75 prescription WITH ASTIGMATISM to 0!!!! The day after surgery for my post-op, I could easily see 20/20, and I know they don't guarantee better than 20/20, but I was able to see 20/15 the day after surgery, with my own eyes...truly amazing!!!! TO THIS DAY I CATCH MYSELF IN AMAZEMENT BECAUSE I KNOW WHAT IT WAS LIKE TO NOT HAVE THIS VISION WITH MY OWN EYES. I'm now 4.5 weeks out from when I had surgery and the post-op procedures and drops are cake. I have not had ANY glares, halos, starbursts, nothing. I can see clearly at night and during the day. "Whereas once I was blind, now I see." Thank you so much Dr. Chu, your team, and the experience you have built. I can't put into words how you have changed my life. Thank you so much."

"My vision correction is experience at the Chu Vision Institute couldn’t have been better. Though their pre screen process Dr. Chu and his staff take extreme care to ensure you and your eyes are a good fit for laser correction surgery. Once it is was determined that LASIK was the best option for me, Dr. Chu’s awesome staff was on point getting me ready for my procedure. Dr. Chu even did a video call with me a couple of days before the procedure to answer any additional questions I had and to describe the procedure itself. The day after my LASIK procedure I was seeing 20/15 in both eyes !! The only regret I have is that I waited so long to get my eyes fixed. The Chu Vision Institute gave me my vision back and I am super grateful! Thank you all for taking such good care of me and my eyes. Best, Todd-"

"I came in for a Lasik consultation and Chu Vision is a well-oiled machine! Very organized and have the process of the exam and consultation down to a T. Everyone I encountered was very friendly! From the young man who checked me in at my vehicle, the exam and all the way to the end when I met with Amy Ray about scheduling and financing for Lasik. Love it and can't wait to put my eyes in your hands and get Lasik (spoiler...I'm an ideal candidate and will for sure be going to Chu Vision Institute)"
