I have a condition that caused the back of both corneas to degenerate. Dr. Poulsen performed a tissue transplant on each eye and my vision has been restored. I had minimal discomfort and no complications. He is an excellent surgeon and a very nice person.

I had LASIK surgery 2 years ago with Dr. Eric Poulsen and I could not be happier! My consultation was thorough and the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. I have since then referred my mom and dad, my two sisters and their kids, my brother-n-law, and a handful of friends. I highly recommend Dr. Poulsen and his staff for all your eye needs.
