    I just had my LASIK procedure done by Dr. Tom and couldn't be happier. I can see better than every before. the process was so easy and enjoyable, I would do it again in a heartbeat!

    Incredibly talented surgeon. My LASIK results have been incredible and my grandmothers cataract surgery went well and gave her the results she was after. We couldn't be happier!

    Dr. Strinden provided the best care possible for both myself and my mother. I had LASIK done by Dr. Strinden a few years ago and the results have been incredible, and then my mom had cataract surgery a few weeks ago and cannot believe the results. We love coming to Dr. Strinden and are so grateful for his kindness and talent.
