Dr. Howard and his team were very thorough during my Lasik process, explaining each step and what to expect during the procedure. I felt very comfortable going into the procedure and am so happy and satisfied with my results. Extremely grateful for Dr. Howard and Rita!

Dr. Howard is an excellent surgeon, and I am glad that I put my eyes on his hands because the PRK Surgery was a success. Also, the technician Ms. Rita Paunovich is a great person that help me with all this process.

Dr. Howard is a great eye surgeon! He takes the time to explain both the procedure as well as his thought process to you and ensures that you are well informed prior to the procedure. He makes himself available to you well after the procedure and provides great Post-op care. I see better than I ever have before! He was also very accommodating to my hectic schedule and I am grateful for that. Rita was incredible as well, making sure I was taken care of at every visit and comfortable during the procedure. I highly recommend both Dr. Howard and Rita!
