On or about 2000-2002, I was recovering from an accident. I had heard about laser eye surgery, but wasn't sure if I was a candidate. A member of my family was already a patient of Dr. Tyson. I personally spoke w/Dr. Tyson about the surgery and felt comfortable that I was in good hands. Dr. Tyson explains the procedure and then lets you ask as many questions as you want. The surgery was flawless. Dr. Tyson is not only a premier expert in his field, he's a superb person as well.
