Dr. Anita Hwang is a miracle worker. Since I was 5 years old, I wore glasses and I always thought that I would have to wear glasses and contact lenses. After having the Visian ICL procedure, I can see 20/20 in both eyes without glasses and I now have a joy and freedom that I never had before. Dr. Hwang and Robin and staff are amazing, and I highly recommend them to everyone.

For over 25 years, I've had vision problems. I've seen other eye doctors and they could never diagnose my condition. Thankfully one of my doctors sent me to see Anita and I'm glad he did. In just a few weeks, she has me seeing better than I have in years. Also, she is the nicest, warmest doctor I've ever met. You can tell she cares and that she's honest because she takes the time to listen and explain.

Dr.Hwang was trusted with our elderly mother to do an eye procedure . We visited the office every week for two years after the surgery ~~~ believing that Dr.Hwang was competent and caring. Several procedures , MANY different eye drops and medications ( contraindicated ) later ~~~ mother was very close to complete blindness . Luckily, we found an extremely competent and caring new Doctor, able to partially correct some of the damage done and save some eyesight .

It's great to know that there is a cornea specialist in the area. My ophthalmologist had referred me to see Dr. Hwang and I'm glad that he did. Anita is fantastic. She takes the time to listen to my questions and speak with me. I never felt like I do at other doctor's offices where I feel like they talk down to me. She's kind and considerate and makes me feel very comfortable knowing she'll take care of my eyes. Also, shout out to the office staff. They're wonderful too.
