I have only 5-star worthy things to say about Dr. Tunis and his staff. Every visit to his office was pleasant. Everyone there shared in making the experience the best one could ever hope for. Dr. Tunis made me feel comfortable and informed and I knew that should I have any issues or questions he'd be there to answer them at any time day or night. Waking up this morning and not having to reach for my glasses to see the time on the cable box was huge. I am so thankful for my "new" eyes and grateful for Dr. Tunis and his staff not only making me feel informed and comfortable every step of the way but also sharing my excitement for such a life-changing event. more »

I highly recommend Dr. Tunis. The entire office was professional, helpful and answered all of my questions. They took the time to walk through everything I needed and asked of them and never felt rushed. Dr. Tunis made me feel comfortable through the whole process. Thank again-no glasses or contacts! more »

Being legally blind, I never thought I'd be able to see and experience the world again. Thank you, Dr. Tunis (and your incredible staff) for your knowledge, skills and great bedside manner AND for giving me the gift of TRUE SIGHT. I cannot ever thank you enough. God bless you a thousand times over. I never thought SEEING like this would ever be possible for me. I thank you with all my heart. more »

Crisp, sharp, and clear. I had been squinting for the past 12 years, because i never wanted to deal with glasses or contacts. I was right on the edge of having a restriction on my driver's license and just dealt with blurry vision over the years.
I went in for my consultation and the cost seemed to be reasonable. I was not very nervous, because other members of my family have had lasik and I knew that the technology has improved over the years. I met Dr. Tunis on my 2nd visit and any anxiety that I had before was eliminated.
Doctor Tunis has been doing lasik since the mid 90s. His confidence was overwhelming and he explained the procedure with great detail.
I was only out of commission for half a day and I was able to see 2/5 letters on the 20/10 chart the next norning.
Everything that I look at is so vivid. Looking off my back porch in the past I could see the marsh glass, but now I look and see individual grass blades waving in the wind. Looking at the sky is crystal clear, the clouds are beautiful and the trees are electric.
I went to an outdoor concert the other night and I could recognise friends faces from across the field. Go see Dr. Tunis as soon as possible. He will change the world around you!

I must say, I was very nervous about going in and getting Laser Eye Surgery. I have been thinking about it for years because my vision was so bad, glasses are uncomfortable, and contacts can be a pain. Luckily I was recommended to go to Dr. Tunis for my procedure. He was able to help and provided me comfort and eased my anxiety through the whole process. Dr. Tunis and his staff were an absolute pleasure to work with. I can say after only 1 day my vision is 20/20 and I feel excited about what my life will be like without the constant struggle of wearing glasses or contacts. I highly recommend this group to anyone considering LASIK. more »

I was so nervous about getting lasik. But Dr. Tunis and his staff were amazing. So professional and just a pleasure to be around. I was around 20/400 when I stepped into his office and one day later I'm seeing 20/15! Couldn't ask for anything better.
Thank you guys for all you do!

I had the most wonderful experience within Dr. Tunis and his staff! I had lasik done on both eyes. Dr. Tunis was very honest about the procedures, not once did I feel like I was being sold any service I didn't need. He and his staff are very kind, patient and informative. I felt very safe and comfortable throughout the whole process. I'm so happy with my results! more »

My LASIK experience from start to finish was absolutely wonderful! Dr. Tunis obviously enjoys his job and cares very much about his patients. He is extremely knowledgeable and confident in his work. His staff is amazing. I had no pain and my vision is incredible (I'm writing this the day after!) I am still in awe! more »

I highly recommend Dr. Tunis and his associates. They were really nice and great to deal with. If I had to do it again they would be first on the list. There is not enough words to express my gratitude to them all. Thanks again for the great experience. more »

Dr. Tunis is truly the best that has ever looked into these eyes, he explains what he is doing and what he is looking for. His professional demeanor is easily translated into telling me what is right or wrong with my vision. He has been both my Wife’s and my Doctor for many years, it is hard to find in this day and age someone that you can easily put all your trust into.
And then there is his Staff always smiling and willing to go out of their way to make you feel relaxed. And the same Staff has been there for years, which says to me it has to be a great place to work.
To Dr. T and his Staff GREAT JOB!!!
