Dr. Scallon is the best in the business. I went to him for LASIK because my normal eye doctor recommended him and I couldn’t of been any happier. He was very thorough and explained everything very clearly to me before and during the procedure. I was a little nervous about getting LASIK but everything went smoothly and was completely painless. But most importantly I got perfect vision! I can’t recommend Dr. Scallon enough!

Dr. Scallon was very good as far as I could tell. This was my first experience with him. My cataract surgeries went well and all seems to be fine so far. He is extremely popular so you have to wait for awhile to get a visit with him, but eventually the time does come.

Dr. Scallon and his staff were amazing during my appointments for Lasik surgery. Only regret is not having the surgery years ago.

I recently had second eye cataract surgery and Toric lens placement with Dr. Scallon (the first cataract with intraocular lens placement elsewhere). The procedure was flawless and my vision is perfect other than presbyopia consistent with my advanced age. Dr. Scallon is personable and caring, as well as an excellent surgeon! I recommend him, his staff and their work and communication skills, and the outcome as definitely 5-star!

Dr. Scallon was the doctor I chose to perform LASIK on my two sons almost 20 years ago, and they have had marvelous, trouble free results. Dr. Scallon performed my cataract surgery 3 years ago, also with great results. I have recommended him to both family members and friends.

Louis J. Scallon, M.D., at the Wolfe Eye Clinic in Ames, Iowa, performed cataract surgery on both of my eyes. The Wolfe Eye Clinic was very professional, and the team that assisted Doctor Scallon with my eye examinations and measurements was excellent. Doctor Scallon was highly recommended by friends. He explained the procedure very well. The surgery far exceeded my expectations. I would recommend Doctor Scallon at the Wolfe Eye Clinic to anyone considering cataract surgery!

Dr. Scallon seems very knowledgeable, is very kind, and seems genuinely concerned about his patients. He also explains things clearly, which is very important to someone like me, who is losing their sight and doesn't understand what's happening.
