Laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis or LASIK has transformed the lives of countless patients who had previously been reliant on wearing glasses or contact lenses and is the most popular elective eye surgery in the world. We are delighted to be able to offer LASIK laser vision correction to our patients who are looking for a permanent way to see clearly.
Eyesight problems can be a huge inconvenience. Activities like swimming and snowboarding are much more difficult if you need to wear glasses or contact lenses. In regular day to day activities, there can be the worry that your eyeglasses may fall off, or that you have left them behind when you need them. If you suffer from pollen allergies, you may find putting contact lenses in nearly impossible. In short, there are lots of ways in which the need for visual aids can interrupt your life, and it can be extremely frustrating. LASIK reduces or removes the inconvenience of eyeglasses or contact lenses and makes it much easier to get on with living life to the fullest.
Dr. Katsev has been the most professional, thoroughly conscientious and caring that I’ve come across in all my years interacting with the medical industry. An excellent Ophthalmologist and person! Would recommend him to absolutely anyone.
I've been a patient of Dr. Katsev for the past 25 years and there is a reason I'd never go to anyone else, not only is he an expert in his field but he always goes above and beyond for his patients. Doug and the team at Santa Barbara Eyecare are a family that has supported me through my journey from glasses to Lasik and I couldn't be more thrilled with my vision post Lasik surgery. Highly recommend SB Eyecare!
I had LASIK surgery done by Dr. Katsev 12 years ago and it was by far the best decision I have ever made. The surgery was so quick and easy, I wish I would have had it done earlier! Dr. Katsev and his staff were wonderful and made the whole surgery relaxing and an enjoyable experience. Would recommend Dr. Katsev and LASIK to absolutely anyone.
Best Doctor in Santa Barbara! Did my cataract surgery four years ago and I no longer need glasses! Changed my life. Thanks Dr. Katsev
Doug Katsev is the best doctor I know. Years ago his quick and personal work saved my vision by quickly organizing me to have surgery to fix a detached retina. His new office is great!
