Thank you so much for my new and improved vision! 5+++ stars

At 45 years of age, night driving became very difficult for me, I assumed I needed a new prescription for my glasses. To my dismay it was cataracts. The thought of having cataract surgery at my age was scary. After consulting with Dr. Devgan he assured me that while slightly uncommon for a person of my age, this surgery was not rare and on top of removing the cataracts, he would correct my severe nearsightedness as well as my astigmatism. As someone who has worn glasses all my life this sounded just right! His demeanor was calm and reassuring. After my consultation with him, I couldn't wait for surgery! As the day of surgery arrived, I have to admit, I was a little nervous. That being said, everyone from the nurses, the anesthesiologist, and of course Dr. Devgan were true professionals and made me more than comfortable. More importantly, Dr. Devgan did not over promise! He is a true artist. The next day, I was out of glasses, and ready for driving. Now I can watch Netflix without glasses, I can rest on my side while watching and not be worried about squishing my glasses or having them jab me in the face. The best part is being able to drive safely at night again. I'm back to taxiing my kids around to dance lessons, soccer practice, etc... I give the absolute highest recommendation to Dr. Devgan - thank you so much for my new and much improved vision! Heather L.

I'm an ophthalmologist, and Dr. Devgan did my LASIK

As an ophthalmologist myself, I chose Dr. Uday Devgan to perform my LASIK procedure because he is known in our profession to have the best outcomes and lowest complications. Dr. Devgan is not only known for having gifted surgical hands, but he also trains ophthalmology residents, so he is always on the cutting edge of our field. My experience with Dr. Devgan and his office was absolutely perfect. Dr. Devgan has a fantastic bedside manner. At my pre-op appointment I met all of his staff who immediately made me feel comfortable and at ease. Dr. Devgan's surgical planning was precise and spot on. Coordinating my appointments with his staff was pleasant and flexible. I cannot emphasize enough how wonderful his staff were, and I only wish I could steal them away to work at my office one day. Any ophthalmologist would be lucky to have them! On the day of my surgery, my refraction was double checked, I was given a light sedative, and given time to relax in a massage chair in a pre-op room. Once I was ready, I was invited into the OR suite. Dr. Devgan has a very unique setup in his OR suite that allows the surgical bed to pivot between the lasers, allowing for a seamless transition for the patient between the laser for the flap creation and the laser for the ablation. As far as I know, his is the only practice to employ such a method and it is genius!!! After experiencing it myself I am convinced that this should be a standard setup at all LASIK offices. Dr. Devgan and his staff made me feel at ease throughout the procedure, which was over almost before it had begun! For me it felt like it only lasted 2 minutes from the moment I lay down on the bed to the moment I stood back up. There was no pain. After coming home and taking a nap, my vision was great! I walked to the grocery store that night and marveled at my new visual acuity. I kept waiting to feel dryness or pain, but only every experienced a mild foreign body sensation that disappeared after 24 hrs. At my follow up appointment the next day I was able to easily read the 20/15 line and even some of the 20/10 line. I felt like I had eagle eyes! Dr. Devgan nailed our target exactly because my new prescription was measured to be plano (0.00 both eyes). Goodbye contacts and glasses! I have been enjoying my stunning vision ever since. In short, Dr. Devgan is an amazing surgeon, and even his fellow surgeons think so. If you need LASIK or cataract surgery, he is your doctor. His staff is also extremely helpful and friendly and will make you feel comfortable and valued.

More about Dr. Uday Devgan

I am a Los Angeles local, from elementary school through medical school (USC, Summa Cum Laude, M.D. with Highest Distinction, co-president of the Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society), including all of my medical and surgical training and residency (UCLA), and I am a full Clinical Professor of Ophthalmology at the Jules Stein Eye Institute at UCLA (I rose through the ranks of Clinical Instructor, then Assistant Clinical Professor, then Associate Clinical Professor very quickly). I enjoy teaching other eye surgeons as Chief of Ophthalmology at Olive View UCLA Medical Center, part of the UCLA School of Medicine, and I am the only one to have won the UCLA Eye Surgery Teaching Award Three times (in 2002, 2007, and 2012). However, I do not see patients at UCLA, rather I just teach there weekly. Why? I have found that I can deliver a higher level of patient care and excellent in my private practice. For this reason, I spend 3 days a week in private practice at Devgan Eye Surgery, considered to be among the very best and premier vision surgery private practices in Southern California. The quality of the surgery and the patient experience is superb, and it is the reason why so man other eye doctors have had their own surgery and surgery for their family members with Dr Devgan. http://www.DevganEye.com
