I had LASIK yesterday and am thrilled with Dr. Updegraff's team and my results. From the initial consultation to post-operative visit, I am beyond impressed with this practice's level of organization, patience, and friendliness. They are so thorough, at every point I was asked if I had any questions, leaving no mystery about the procedure. I never felt rushed or pressured. As someone who struggles with anxiety I was nervous leading up to the surgery, but once I arrived I was cared for at every turn. I was able to relax in the pre-operative room where I was given some medicine, could listen to music and chill in a recliner. When it was time for surgery Dr. Updegraff explained every step of the procedure while an assistant held my hands. My partner was able to watch the surgery in a private suite. I wasn't nervous at all (the Valium helped) and found the LASIK procedure to be entirely pain-free and fast. I experienced only slight discomfort afterwards, but the pain was completely gone when I woke up from a nap later that day, at which point I woke up with perfect vision. Incredible. I'm almost in tears writing this review because I'm so grateful to see clearly. Thank you, Dr. Updegraff and team. I will recommend you to friends and family.

On March 2, 2018 I had Lasik Surgery done. For over 30 years I wore prescription glasses for everything I did. After so many years of dealing with prescription changes, glasses fogging up, breaking, and losing them, Ive finally had it! I was so frustrated with with having to depend on them and began to research the pros and cons of Lasik, as well as the doctors who performed the procedure. I found that Lasik eye surgery facilities were everywhere so to speak, but experienced and highly knowledgeable doctors were not. Then I was referred by a co worker to look into (no pun intended) Dr. Updegraff. My friend had told me she had the procedure done by him and was completely overwhelmed by her results. I set my fears aside and made an appointment for the free eye examination consult with Dr. Updegraffs office. Once there I was placed through a battery of eye tests by the doctors highly professional and educated staff. The complete consult took approximately 2 1/2 hours and found that I was a -3.50 in one eye and -2.50 in the other. I also was found to have astigmatism in both eyes and needed to be treated for myopia. I was reassured by the doctor and staff that being an eligible candidate for the surgery, I would be completely satisfied with the outcome and free of my glasses. My research was complete and my decision was made, I decided to go forward and do it.On March 2nd I went in for surgery at 7:30 am. I checked in and met with Dr. Updegraff again. We went over what to expect during the procedure again and he reassured me that I was in good hands. During the surgery I was fully awake and Dr. Updegraff was giving me a play by play of everything he was doing as well as what I would be feeling. The complete procedure took approximately 20 minutes and was pain free. The results were absolutely amazing! I immediately noticed the difference in clarity right after the surgery. I was given the aftercare instruction by the nurses and sent home. After resting for 5 hours with my eyes closed, I woke up. I looked outside and was overwhelmed of how much everything was brighter, colorful and so much more detailed! I could actually see all of the address numbers on my neighbors houses and their license plate numbers, without glasses! I thought all this happening and it was literally hours after having the procedure completed. Now its been a few days later and the results are even better now for me. Yes, I now wear reading glasses for that purpose only, which was going to happen anyway being 50 years of age. However, I can see perfectly long distance, make out faces in a crowd and enjoy all activities without wearing those damn glasses. After going to my post op check up I was found to have 20/20 vision and see better than Ive ever before!If you are pondering the thought of getting Lasik, I highly recommend going to see Dr. Updegraff and his staff. I would highly recommend him to my friends and family. Dr. Updegraff and staff, thank you all again for giving me my freedom of sight back to me.

From the initial online request for more information, to the scheduling of my consultation, the first face I was greeted by, every single employee and staff member made my choice to have Lasix by Dr Updegraff that much easier. Dr Updegraff and his staff is top notch and makes the traveling from out of state that much more worth it! Thank you Dr Updegraff and Thank you to your entire staff!!!

Amazing LASIK experience. I did the initial FREE consultation on a Saturday morning. It was very thorough and I was able to schedule my surgery for the following Friday, by the following morning I was seeing 20/20. Great experience. I just wish I would have done it sooner!
