Testimonial for Dr. James J. Salz

I was in the third grade when I first complained about my eyesight. I went to my Dad and told him that I couldn’t see the chalkboard at school. He quickly glanced at me, continued watching the Lakers game, and said “Sit in the front row. That’ll help”. Realizing I wasn’t going to go anywhere with him with the Lakers game on, I went and I told my Mom. In a couple of days she took me in to get my eyes checked. After my Dad checked my eyes, he looked at me, and with a laugh told me that I was ‘as blind as a bat’.

I continued to wear glasses all through high school and college. They were a nuisance most of the time, so I wouldn’t wear them. I preferred to walk around squinting at things. Then I started to hear about Dad performing corrective laser surgery. I kept asking him and asking him when he was going ‘to do my eyes’, but he kept giving different reasons as to why it wasn’t the right time-I was too young, my prescription was still changing, and most importantly there wasn’t enough information on LASIK for astigmatism yet. I waited, and eventually the good news came. Within a year after college, I was in his office for my pre-operative exam. He told me that he was only going to perform surgery on one eye, and then correct the other eye once he saw how successful the first eye was. The surgery was extremely successful. He waited about a month and a half before doing the second eye. And now a year later, my sight is better than I had ever imagined it would be.

Overall the surgery was easy. I trust my Dad explicitly not only because he is my father, but because he truly is an excellent, professional doctor. He made me feel comfortable during the entire process. He explained things simply and carefully. The staff at the hospital were considerate and had nothing but good things to say about my Dad. My side effects were very minimal. The only discomfort I felt was the day of the surgery, and a little bit of dryness a couple months afterwards (easily fixable with a few drops).

I would recommend my Dad because he is one of the best and one of the most honest people I know. He’ll shoot you straight all the time and take care of you.
