Dr. Lohner did my husbands LASIK surgery a few years ago. Since then he has also done my brother in law and sister in law. I've been VERY impressed with this doctor and will continue to recommend him to others.

My son had LASIK surgery done by Doctor Lohner in Provo. He has been wearing corrective lenses since middle school. Since I never wore glasses until I got old I did not know what it was like not being able to see without help. I am so ecstatic at the results of my son's LASIK surgery. Dr. Lohner has made my son's vision better than when he wore glasses or contacts, 20/20 vision now. Heartfelt Thanks to Dr. Lohner and Excel Eye Center for changing my son's life; I highly recommend them.

My son has had to wear glasses then contacts since he was in middle school. He now lives in Utah and wanted corrective surgery. We visited Excel Eye Center when we were visiting Utah and we were so impressed with everything we saw and heard. Everyone we met with were friendly, helpful and very professional and they know Eyes. We met with Dr. Lohner and he answered all our questions and we felt confident in him to do our son's surgery. The surgery was a success and my son now has 20/20 vision

Dr. Lohner performed my lasik. It has been so great to be able to wake up in the morning and not have to put on glasses or put in contacts. I would do it over again in a heartbeat. Thank you Dr. Lohner.

I have loved my experience at Excel Eye Center! Dr. Lohner did my LASIK surgery almost a year ago and it has been amazing. My vision is even better than with my glasses, I am now 20/15! I have absolutely loved being glasses and contacts free, it has allowed me to better enjoy all the outdoor activities that I love. Dr. Lohner was great at answering all my questions and explaining everything to me. All the staff was really friendly and made scheduling appointments easy. Definitely will recommend!

Dr. Lohner is the BEST! He is easy going and friendly. I highly recommend going to him. He did my PRK surgery a couple months ago and now I am seeing 20/15. I am so happy I got PRK. He is very caring and attentive and knows his stuff! He was very good at explaining to me the procedure and all that was involved. I was pretty nervous to get it but after speaking with Dr. Lohner about it he put be me at ease and I felt very comfortable.
in Provo, UT |
I had PRK 3 months ago. I went from seeing about 20/400 to seeing 20/15. This is the best vision that I can remember ever having. Dr. Lohner did an incredible job, and he has made sure that I have been doing well since my PRK. Having PRK was one of the best decisions that I have ever made. I would do it all over again if I had to. Dr. Lohner is a miracle worker. I have been to many different eye doctors, but Dr. Lohner is by far my favorite doctor!
