Perfect LASIK Experience
Self-verified patient of Dr. Heath L Lemley - Posted on January 10th, 2019
It has been a pleasure to work with Regional Eye. I had LASIK surgery done by Dr Lemley and was extremely impressed with the entire experience. Everyone I dealt with was very professional, they brought me in multiple times to be sure I was a good candidate before surgery, they double and triple checked everything, explained the entire process very well, and kept in touch through everything. I had 20/40 vision before my surgery and now have 20/15 vision (better than perfect), just one week after.
Exceptional care and outcome

I had to have Cataract Surgery on both my eyes,I went to Dr. Lemely. I am very pleased with the care and treatment I received there at Regional Eye Associates INC. He talked with me and explained everything before hand. The staff was friendly and accomadating. After each surgery Dr. Lemley called me later that night to check on me. I would recommend Dr. Lemley or any of his associates for any of your eye care needs.

Dr. Lemley is a skilled surgeon with wonderful bedside manner. My LASIK surgery went very well, and I am so glad that I chose Dr. Lemley and his staff. My vision was already corrected to 20/15 less than 24 hours after surgery, and I have had no complications. I would highly recommend Dr. Lemley as an ophthalmologist.
