  • "I had my LASIK done here a year ago and would go through it again if I had to. Flawless experience and the results are amazing. Two weeks after the surgery I had better than 20/10 vision. I liked the results so much that my brother decided to drive 2 hours to spend a long weekend with me and had his done last month."

He is a wonderful doctor and I truly trust him with my eye problems. He has shown his expertise in his field regarding my eye problems and has been with me for years providing the necessary care that I need. Thank you Dr Colling and your staff."
