Every morning when I wake up I reach for my glasses and then remember that I don't wear glasses any more. Old habits are hard to break. The really, really neat part is that I can see without glasses and my vision so far is holding at a little better than 20/20. I have tried different strengths of reading glasses and have settled on 175. That may change later, but for now it works well. My computer screen is about 30 inches from my seat and I can read it fine without glasses.

The main reason for this E-mail, though, is to ask you to tell Dr. Jaben how happy I am with my "new" eyes. I am very glad that I chose him to do the surgery. Everything he told me has worked as he said it would. I am following the post surgery procedures religiously to help assure that my eyes stay healthy. Also, I tell anyone who wants to talk about Lasik that I think they should call your office and discuss it because I couldn't be any happier with my results and recommend him to anyone who asks. Thank you very much!

Deciding to Have LASIK was a difficult one for me, but after my experience with Dr. Jaben and his staff, I know I made a wise choice. During the entire process from pre-testing to the last follow-up exam, I felt supported and in good hands. Dr. Jaben and his staff really listened to me, answered my questions, and addressed all my concerns. I would highly recommend LASIK with Dr. Jaben.

I am totally satisfied with the results. I have regained my normal vision and no longer need glasses to watch TV, drive, or enjoy the outdoors. I only need reading glasses. Everything was completed as described and I am very HAPPY!

It is a miracle to have this technology that allowed me to go from wearing contacts and/or glasses all of my life to 20/20 vision! This occurred almost overnight and was painless. Everything went extremely smooth the day of my surgery. Dr. Jaben and his staff were very reassuring, kind and professional. I was pleased that they provided everything from medications to sunglasses the morning of surgery, so all that needed to be done by me was to go home and rest. My only regret is that I did not choose to do this sooner.

As a former medical malpractice defense attorney, I did my research on LASIK and PRK. I looked around Charlotte and found that the level of service provided by Dr. Jaben and his wonderful staff was unmatched. Dr. Jaben answered all of my questions after determining that LASIK wasn't an option for me, but PRK was. The procedure itself was quick and painless and my recovery was just as smooth! Dr. Jaben and his staff are truly amazing! I trusted Dr. Jaben with my vision and am really glad I did. I can't wait to get my husband scheduled with Dr. Jaben.

This actually was my second time having LASIK performed by Dr. Jaben. I had decided, for many reasons, to treat one eye at a time. All I can say is I couldn't be happier. The surgery went smoothly and everyone on the staff made me feel confident about my decision. As I had a different procedure done this time around, it took longer to heal..but I didn't experience any of the pain or side effects they had warned me might be possible. Now, 6 months later, I can see clearly and without the headache of glasses. How nice to wake up and be able to read the clock! I am 100% satisfied the only thing I can say is why didn't I do it sooner. Thanks team!

I've worn contacts for almost 20 years. It just came to the point where they had there limitations. My regular doctor referred me to Dr. Jaben. Having LASIK is the best thing I have done. The staff were friendly and explained to me what would take place. Dr. Jaben was able to answer all my questions and put my mind at ease. Thanks!

I wanted to send you a note and let you know how much I appreciate you getting me in for lasik. I had planned to have my doctor do the surgery but looking back I believe I was guided to Dr Jaben and all the fine folks at TLC. I truly believe it was ordained of God. I can see for the first time in years. I know I have a ways to go yet but so far it is unbelievable. The team from Dr Jaben, Dr Rauch, Dina, Terry, all the techs at TLC and yourself are first rate. I truly felt completely at ease. I am a missionary pastor to the Hispanic folks here in NC and frequently go to Mexico. God has plans for me that include no glasses. Thank you for your service to humanity. Maybe some day I can tell you the whole story of how this came about. Thank you again and I am praying for you all.

The entire staff involved in my LASIK surgery made the experience a positive one. Friendly faces and professionalism eased my nervousness. No one hesitated to listen to and answer any questions I had, showing genuine caring. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Jaben and his team to someone interested in LASIK.

Laura McLean
Charlotte, NC, June 2006

LASIK surgery has profoundly changed my life. I have an extra 30 minutes each day, now that I don't have to fuss with contacts or search for my glasses. Family camping is hassle-free..For the first time in 30 years, I can open my eyes while swimming. It has been truly liberating and a pleasurable experience. The staff at CEENTA could not have been more accommodating and informative. From Karon Petty's thorough patient relations and convenient scheduling to Dr. Jaben's conservative professionalism, they took all of my hesitation away. You will not find a more professional, dedicated team. Its no cookie cutter, one-diagnosis fits all practice, but individual attention every step of the way.

My experience with Dr. Jaben and my surgery was excellent. My recovery time was a little longer with the type of surgery I had but the results were better than anticipated and well worth the wait. About two and a half months after my surgery I began to notice the clarity of my eyesight and how in focus everything was. I would not hesitate to do it all over again.

It was the best thing that I ever did for myself and was the best spent tax return....It is still amazing to me to be able to wake up at night and see the alarm clock or to be able to see the TV without having to put my glasses on...

Ed Reid
Huntersville, NC, February 2006

The staff was very courteous. I felt extremely comfortable before and after the procedure. They answered all of my questions and were very patient with me. At first, I was apprehensive about the surgery but after the evaluation, I had extreme confidence in my surgeon and his staff and the Lifetime Commitment they offered me gave me more confidence in their ability. No regrets!

Ashley Bullerdick
Denver, NC, February 2005

I thought the TLC staff was very professional and courteous. The atmosphere was very calm....As for the surgery, what can I say, it is just simply amazing. Dr. Jaben is an incredible LASIK surgeon and I would definitely recommend the surgery and Dr. Scott Jaben.

LASIK both eyes, November 1997

"I just experienced a miracle of modern medicine. After almost 50 years of having to wear glasses or contacts, I can now see clearly without lenses. I can play competitive sports and see perfectly and can wakeup in the middle of the night and not have to fumble for glasses. What a blessing!

"As a physician and an author of a medical book for consumers, I carefully evaluate the care I receive. Dr. Jaben and his team are caring and professional. After my Lasik surgery, I have sent many more patients to him and will continue to do so."

Robert Kipnis, MD
Physician, Arthritis / Osteoporosis specialist
LASIK both eyes, November 2003

"As a physician, I know the Charlotte medical community quite well and I chose Dr. Jaben to do my surgery because I knew he was an excellent technical surgeon who performs all sorts of complicated eye surgeries. I also knew he had extensive experience with Lasik vision correction. Equally important, however, was the fact that I knew he did not run patients through his clinic and perform surgery on anyone and everyone.

"I have worn glasses since I was six years old and contacts since I was 12. I haven't been able to see well enough to even read my bedside clock without glasses, and if I misplaced my glasses I wouldn't have a chance of finding them since my uncorrected vision was so poor. I dreamed about the freedom of not wearing glasses or contacts, and my results from the Lasik surgery performed by Dr. Jaben have been nothing short of miraculous.

"As physicians, we are all trained to treat each patient as an individual - ensuring that we review the risks and benefits of any medication or procedure, and treat each patient as if they are a member of our family. My entire Lasik experience with Dr. Scott Jaben and his staff stood up to all of those ideals."

LASIK monovision, January 2002

"The thing about not wearing glasses is that I work in the spotters stand which is the highest place at all the NASCAR tracks, and I can see as much as the spotters all around the track...without wearing glasses. Plus, when diving, I can see clearly underwater... where I spend several weeks each year. It took only a few days to get accustom to mono vision... my right eye does the distance... my left eye is for reading. And I have no problem on the computer."

"Just a brief note to thank you and your wonderful staff for the excellent care provided to me and Debbie during our recent laser vision correction surgeries.

"Your staff at Charlotte EENT Associates and at the TLC Laser Eye Center were extremely professional and caring people. I felt entirely comfortable through my pre-op evaluation, my surgery, and my post-op follow-up visits.

"Debbie and I are thrilled with our results. Prior to this procedure, I was dependent on eyeglasses for distance vision. As you remember, Debbie had poor distance vision that required that she wear either contact lenses or eyeglasses during the day. We both see 20/20 without corrective lenses and we really don/t miss our contact lenses or our eyeglasses!

"Thank you again for guiding us through this entire process. We appreciate everything that you have done for us."

LASIK both eyes, July 1999

"Choosing to have my laser vision correction was easy. I have an active lifestyle and a small child at home and wearing contacts slowed me down. When I made the decision to have LASIK, I knew it was the right on. I trusted my surgeon and knew he was experienced. I researched the procedure on the internet and spoke with others who'd had it. I felt confident that it was going to have a significant impact on my daily life. I couldn't have been more right. I'm 20/20 and can even read a few letters on the 20/15 line. It's amazing. I've been swimming, boating, bike riding and vacationing and have done it all in comfort. Contact lenses made it difficult for me to rub my eyes when I was tired, cry at movies, wear make-up comfortably, fall asleep on the couch, and enjoy my sailboat. Now I do it all with my own beautiful blue eyes! When people ask me about the procedure I tell them it was pain free and in a matter of hours I was seeing 20/20 clearly and considering my vision before the procedure this was amazing to me. Would I do it again? In a second."

Bobby Webster
LASIK both eyes, April 2000

"I really don't have enough words to express how happy I am with my new vision. A whole new world has appeared before me and I see things in a more positive, happier way. (Sounds funny but this is truly from the heart).

"I want to thank you for all you have done and I look forward to continuing visiting your office for my eye care needs. I have recommended you highly to all my friends and family and to those whom I work with.

"I am truly grateful and consider myself fortunate to have had you as my lasik eye surgeon."

Joshua Russell
LASIK both eyes, August 1999

"I am just writing to thank you all for your help and kindness towards me during my laser vision correction on August 10th. Everything is going great for me and I am not having any problems. Sometimes I am still amazed at how well I can see now. I cannot thank you enough.

"The individuals who were involved with ny surgery were top notch and I cannot say enough about them. Their kindness allowed me to be relaxed and comfortable throughout the entire procedure; they truly are great professionals. The procedure has now removed my vision limitations that would have prevented me from pursuing my dream of becoming a police officer, and for that I cannot thank you enough.

"I do not hesitate in recommending the procedure to all my friends who wear glasses or contacts, and even complete strangers. I am so glad that I had the procedure done. Once again, thank you so much and keep up the great work!"

M. O'Neal Speight, MD
Physician, Family Practice
LASIK both eyes, April 1999

"Dear Scott, Just a follow-up on my previous surgery. I wanted to let you know that postoperatively everything went fine, and I consider it one of the best decisions that I have made in this life. My right visual acuity appears to be about 20/20, and the left is 20/25 and I, to this day, constantly am amazed at how crisp and clear the world seems to be through my surgically corrected eyes.

"I have passed your name along to a number of patients and colleagues. I certainly hope you have seen some of them by now. Feel free to post my letter in order to make people aware of your satisfied patients."

Carl Cartner
LASIK both eyes, December 2001

"I experienced a very positive happening on December 7th (D-Day). That was the day that I underwent Lasik Surgery on my eyes to rid me of bifocal glasses that I had worn for about 25 years and literally despised. I am 63 years old and still need glasses to read very small print, but I am glasses-free about 98% of the time and it is wonderful. Everyone at TLC was very professional and knowledgeable, and also very thorough in explaining each patient's expectations following the procedure. Thanks for a very positive and rewarding experience."
