I had LASIK surgery four weeks ago performed by Dr. Siapco. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The staff as well as Dr. Siapco walked me through everything, was very helpful with any of my questions and the procedure went wonderful! I was amazed four hours later I could see great and with little to no discomfort. If you are considering but don’t know if you should take the leap, talk with Heather at the Mt. Vernon office. It is worth it! Thanks so much to everyone at Cascadia Eye.

I had LASIK done this morning (Friday, 9/2) by Dr. Siapco. I was very nervous when I arrived, but the staff was wonderful and made me feel comfortable. Dr. Siapco walked me through the entire procedure as it was being performed. The procedure itself didn’t hurt at all and so far I only have a little discomfort. I contemplated having this done for a year. If you are ‘on the fence’, go for it. You won’t regret it!
PS: I cannot forget about [Heather, LASIK Coordinator]! [She was] so patient and continued answering my (repeat) questions. Patience and consideration are what hesitant patients need when trying to make this decision.
Thank you, Cascadia Eye!

I decided to take the plunge into better vision with LASIK in February, 2016. From my first phone call with Cascadia Eye to chat about starting the surgery process, I was treated with care, respect, and felt the staff had a genuine interest in my vision. I was nervous and cautious about spending a good amount of money on LASIK because it comes with some risk, as any surgery does. I had become accustomed to living my life in contact lenses and glasses, and was constantly dealing with small but impactful effects on my lifestyle. Not until I went through with the surgery did I realize how grateful I am to not have to worry about falling asleep in contacts, wearing sunglasses over my eyeglasses, ripping a contact lens, licking it before putting it back in my eye, getting headaches from looking above my glasses, and so many other things I put up with because I was not born with perfect vision. Now that I have had LASIK, I am able to wake up and live my life without being held back by contacts or glasses. The actual surgery was quick and I felt totally comfortable under the careful hands of Dr. Pereira. He took his time to make sure I knew what to expect, and kindly assured me everything would be ok. A few minutes of discomfort under the laser and a less than ideal couple hours of recovery at home were certainly worth a lifetime of perfect vision. People always ask me if I recommend getting LASIK, and I can honestly tell them that it was one of the best decisions I ever made for myself. My LASIK experience with Cascadia Eye was professional, safe, and resulted in 20/15 vision so recommending it to friends is a no-brainer.

The idea of LASIK had always been appealing to me. But I put it off for years out of fear of it not being done ‘right.’ When I met Dr. Siapco, he immediately put all my concerns to rest. After the procedure and a day of rest, I walked outside and could see for the first time without corrective lenses since I was a kid. Wow. What a blessing.
