"I had RLE on both eyes three weeks ago and I’ve never seen this well in my life. From “coke bottle” glasses in the 2nd grade, to years of uncomfortable saucer-like contacts, to 20/20 vision today, this is a game changer. I am truly grateful for Dr. Choi and his staff. In addition to skill and professionalism, they are kind and personable."
