Dr. Updegraff and Staff were wonderful. Only real choice for Lasik. 20/20
Tampa, FL |
I had an amazing experience with Dr. Updegraff and all of the staff! Everyone was extremely attentive, friendly and professional. During surgery, every part was narrated by Dr. Updegraff. It was not nearly as bad as I thought it would be. Follow up instructions were written thoroughly and a checklist was provided for ease with keeping track of eye drops post surgery. I would recommend to anyone!

He is a great Doc, One of the best I strongly recommend him.

A month ago, I underwent cataract surgery (non-Lasik) with Dr. Updegraff. My expectation was slightly improved vision & correct the double vision in my right eye. The results were... SPECTACULAR! My vision is back to 20/20 and I no longer have to wear glasses (except for 1.75x cheaters for reading really small print). I am ASTONISHED! Additionally, the world looks much brighter and my night vision is greatly improved. I don't know what the averages are but my results are MIRACULOUS!

I had cataract surgery. Minimal discomfort, really quick service, excellent results. All of the Staff were kind and courteous to me. Questions were answered, concerns addressed. Really good results, so far. No more glasses for me!
