I am so pleased I took this decision 9 years ago! it was worth every single penny I spent!
September 12, 2017 via Google: I decided to go under corrective vision surgery 9 years ago. I went into Dr. Filutowski's office in Metrowest. The team was friendly and professional. They did the eye exams to see if I was a good candidate to get surgery done, and I was. The actual surgery was done in the Lake Marry office because some issues they had with an equipment in Orlando. The surgery took no time, and after I woke up at home from a nap, everything look brighter and clear, like if a light switch was in dim during all those years before surgery. After surgery, I had to go back to follow up visits, and I remember everyone being professional and friendly. I am not a fan of cosmetic surgery and even that LASIK is considered cosmetic, I highly recommend to get it done.
After 9 years, (two weeks ago) I decided to do a vision exam. I was told before surgery that my vision would not stay 20/20 forever (which it makes sense) since my eyes will age as I do too. The expected time for my vision to deteriorate was after 5 years of the surgery being done. I went into an ophthalmologist and got my eyes checked, and after the vision exam taken and the Dr who assisted me told me that I didn't really need eyeglasses, since my vision was still almost 20/20! The correction needed to be 20/20 was, R 0.25 and L 0.50. Before surgery my left eye was -5.75 and my right -4.50. I still got my eyeglasses since I spend a lot a time in a computer and reading. I am an advocate for eye surgery for those who come across and share their doubts! To me, was and is a life changing event. It was difficult to drive with poor vision, to enjoy reading and going to school. I am so pleased I took this decision 9 years ago! it was worth every single penny I spent!
On my first visit I was pleased with how efficient and friendly the staff was.
August 10, 2017: After many years of dealing with the hassles of wearing glasses my optometrist suggested that I schedule an appointment with Dr. Filutoswki. On my first visit I was pleased with how efficient and friendly the staff was. I reviewed my options with one of the counselors who explained the different procedures in detail. I chose the Clear Upgrade with laser Cataracts surgery. I am looking forward to a life without wearing glasses and the best possible vision after surgery. Thank you Margi for all the information you provided and most of all for your patience
...Only Dr. Filutowski told me, after studying my charts, that he felt confident that he could give me the results I wanted. And he did...
June 26, 2017: Knowing I needed cataract surgery, I got three separate opinions last year. Two of the three told me I wasn't a candidate for the multi-focal lenses I wanted. They said I would need to continue to wear reading glasses at least. Only Dr. Filutowski told me, after studying my charts, that he felt confident that he could give me the results I wanted. And he did. From start to finish the staff was friendly and professional, and I give them my highest recommendation. Don't settle for anything less. I have 20/20 vision and am thrilled.
With zero percent financing options you really have no excuse.
June 22, 2017: I can't possibly put into words this life-changing experience. Coming up on one year since my surgery and I've honestly forgotten what it was like to wear glasses and contacts for 10 years. I came out with 20/15 vision and honestly can't thank him enough. The procedure is 5 minutes and completely painless. With zero percent financing options you really have no excuse. Nobody likes paying bills but I can say I enjoy paying this one.
My experience has been a life-changing triumph!
As a professional author, I had been fighting a deadline to complete a book. My poor vision was a distraction and disruption to my work. Choosing to have LASIK impacted my work and my life. I had monovision so I can now see close up and far away. I feel stronger and healthy and young again! My experience has been a life-changing triumph! I continue to be stunned by my great vision.
Seeing without glasses has rocked my life...
I wanted to have LASIK and wanted the very best for my eyes, so after some research, I chose to see the Doctors at the Filutowski Cataract & LASIK Institute. Wouldn’t you know it – I was not a good candidate for LASIK. However, since the Filutowski Cataract & LASIK Institute does more than just LASIK, I was able to have another refractive procedure to give me the vision I have been longing for. Seeing without glasses has rocked my life - I love my new vision!! Thank you Dr. Filutowski, not only for my great vision but for making me comfortable every step of the way! I highly recommend Dr. Filutowski.
I think it is important to tell others that the procedure was fast and painless, and in less than 24 hours I am seeing almost perfectly!
Some friends had LASIK with Dr. Filutowski and recommended him to me. The experience at my first appointment was comfortable and I was very pleased with how organized and efficient the entire process was. The staff was friendly and courteous and respectful of my time. I reviewed my options with one of the counselors, who walked me through every step.
I chose Clear Upgrade, with Laser Cataract Surgery, and the monovision option so I could get the best possible vision afterward surgery without the need of glasses or contacts. I think it is important to tell others that the procedure was fast and painless, and in less than 24 hours I am seeing almost perfectly!
I felt special, and the gals in their surgery center treated me as if I was the only patient.
The staff of the Filutowski Cataract & LASIK Institute is exceptionally friendly, each and every one. I chose Clear Upgrade and the new laser technology sounded wonderful. On the day of my cataract surgery, I hardly felt anything, and only one time did I feel a little pressure on my eye when Dr. Filutowski was using the laser. I did not take any sedative before the procedure and went through it comfortably. I was a little cold and wrapped up in a nice warm blanket. I felt special, and the gals in their surgery center treated me as if I was the only patient.
I no longer needed glasses of any kind.
At the age of 85, my fondest pastimes are deep-sea fishing, swimming, crossword puzzles, and riding my motorbike. About six months ago because of cataracts and general loss of sight it looked like I would have to give up crossword puzzles and driving any form of a motor vehicle. After much research, I chose Filutowski Institute. The procedure was far more simple and comfortable than I had imagined. I no longer needed glasses of any kind. My sight is now 20/20 and my driver’s license has been renewed for another 7 years! Thank you Dr. Filutowski for letting me enjoy seeing God’s beautiful world and letting me drive my motor vehicles.
The change has been fantastic and I now see 20/20!
I wore tri-focal glasses for 52 years. Now, thanks to having had cataract surgery and choosing Clear Upgrade, I no longer depend upon glasses for good vision! Dr. Filutowski has restored my youth! The change has been fantastic and I now see 20/20! My wife also chose Clear Upgrade and with her cataract surgery, neither of us look for our glasses when we want to go out for a nice ride. Thumbs up to Dr. Filutowski and to Clear Upgrade for allowing my wife and I to enjoy life with great vision!
Clearly seeing my son’s expression as he giggles across the room feels like a gift.
[...] Since Lasik the little moments have become better moments. Clearly seeing my son’s expression as he giggles across the room feels like a gift. I should have chosen LASIK sooner, but I had anxiety about the procedure. I have to laugh now that I was scared because it was easier and more comfortable than the dentist. Dr. Filutowski and his staff were all reassuring and comforting; they didn’t discount my anxiety and took the time to make me comfortable. Thanks to everyone at the Filutowski Cataract & LASIK Institute for a life changing experience. Clear eyesight is something I will never take for granted.
The procedure was quick and painless.
I found the consultation to be very thorough, answering all my questions and putting to rest any fears I might have had. The procedure was quick and painless. Best of all, I no longer have to worry about the expense and inconvenience of glasses or contacts. Thanks, Dr. Filutowski!
I love my new vision.
I’ve always envied people who could wake up in the morning, open their eyes and could see! I dreamt that could happen for me. After High Definition LASIK, that dream is a reality! I love my new vision. Thank you, Dr. Filutowski!
It was literally life changing!
As a model, glasses are not an option and my contact lenses caused countless problems including squinting and tearing during photo shoots. Well, no more! Whether I am on a photo shoot or in the pool with my children, every day I am grateful that I chose High Definition LASIK with Dr. Filutowski. It was literally life changing!
To see without having to depend on glasses or contacts is absolutely amazing!
As an artist, I can tell you that LASIK has perfected the most important tool that I use - my eyes. To see without having to depend on glasses or contacts is absolutely amazing! Dr. Filutowski, his staff and the technology he offers are in my opinion top of the line!
...I could hardly believe my own eyes could see so well.
The convenience of no more glasses and no more contact lenses is only an addition to the pleasure I now experience with crisp, clear vision. Following my High Definition LASIK procedure with Dr. Filutowski, I was so excited with my new vision I could hardly believe my own eyes could see so well. I’m thrilled beyond any of my expectations!
My vision affected the entire quality of my life and everything I did. From oversized, heavy glasses to contact lenses, I was dependent on corrective lenses since elementary school. Reading music was a blurred struggle until after my High Definition LASIK procedure. I was treated with exceptional care throughout my entire LASIK experience. Dr. Filutowski is in the business of changing lives, his work is extraordinary. LASIK has improved my life forever!
Dr. Filutowski has given me my freedom from foggy sports goggles and lost contact lenses.
As a professional athlete, my performance is directly related to my eyesight. For years, I have had to deal with sports goggles, and then contact lenses. Although adequate, they do not begin to approach the freedom of good sight. Dr. Filutowski has given me my freedom from foggy sports goggles and lost contact lenses. Most of all, he has given me the freedom to see my little girl grow up without having to reach for my glasses first. Thank you, Dr. Filutowski!
I see better than ever and no longer have headaches or red eyes.
Becoming a professional ballet dancer took many years of hard work and was a great joy in my life. My poor vision began to impair my dancing. I could no longer see myself in the mirror and focus. Dr. Filutowski performed magic on my eyes and my problems with dancing are now only a bad dream! I see better than ever and no longer have headaches or red eyes. Dancing now is not a job – it is fun again! I can now see the audience and how they react to my performance – which is the greatest reward.
Thank you Dr. Filutowski, my dancing is better and I enjoy the magic of good vision!
...Dr. Filutowski exceeded all of my expectations about vision correction.
Not a day goes by that I can’t say how happy I am with my new vision, especially with the important duties of good vision that critical care nursing requires. High Definition LASIK and Dr. Filutowski exceeded all of my expectations about vision correction.
He put all of my fears to rest and restored my vision to a degree I never thought possible.
When I decided to have LASIK performed on me to correct my vision, only the best would do. I needed a surgeon who not only had experience that went unmatched in his field but also practiced using the most current and technologically advanced methods available. I wanted someone who would be willing to spend whatever time was necessary candidly explaining to me the risks involved as well as my chances of a successful outcome. In the end, Dr. Filutowski was the only choice for me. He put all of my fears to rest and restored my vision to a degree I never thought possible. Thanks, Dr. Filutowski, for the terrific work and for the opportunity to be contact-free forever.
This is a new sense of freedom, completely awesome!
To do the work I love as a professional photographer without the interference of glasses in one word is – GREAT! This is a new sense of freedom, completely awesome! After meeting Dr. Filutowski, there wasn’t a doubt that having High Definition LASIK was one of the most significant choices of my lifetime, and one that I will be forever grateful that I made. Now I smile for the camera too!
I had absolute confidence that my eyes were in the best care with Dr. Filutowski.
I am still amazed that after years of suffering with glasses I can see – anytime, anywhere – High Definition LASIK is the most wonderful thing I’ve ever gone through and I’ve never been more excited to share such an incredible experience. Dr. Filutowski and his staff are the epitomes of professionalism. I had absolute confidence that my eyes were in the best care with Dr. Filutowski.
You talk about a life-changing experience... this is it!
I've been proudly endorsing the Filutowski Cataract and Lasik Institute on my radio show since 2003. That's when I had High Definition LASIK from Dr. Filutowski, and got rid of the glasses I'd been wearing since fourth grade! Now, all these years later, my vision is still better than 20-20. You talk about a life-changing experience... this is it!
...20/20 has new meaning in my life!
As host of the national morning TV show, my sight is everything. High Definition LASIK has made such a difference… to be able to see without having to depend on glasses or contacts has made life so much easier. Thanks to Doctor Filutowski and his crew at Filutowski Cataract & LASIK Institute, 20/20 has new meaning in my life!
She said it was the best thing that has happened in her life...
My wife, Chrissy, had her LASIK. Now she can read menus, books, read price tags, watch TV, and movies all without glasses. She said it was the best thing that has happened in her life (except for marrying me, of course!) and that she only wishes she would have done it sooner.
Let me just say that my life changed for the better the day I had LASIK!
Let me just say that my life changed for the better the day I had LASIK! Here in Central Florida when it comes to vision, I recommend you see the great doctors and staff of the Filutowski Cataract & LASIK Institute who have been helping people see better for more than 20 years.
After my own High Definition LASIK procedure, the only hurdles I have to jump are on the field!
My new vision is as exciting as winning an Olympic Medal! I was a contact lens wearer for years. I decided I needed a better alternative, especially for sports. Everyone I spoke to about LASIK mentioned the “Filutowski” name and mentioned the Institute’s well-known reputation over many years. I went online to the Filutowski website and I was thoroughly impressed with what I saw and read. Gathering information about LASIK was important in my decision-making process. Having LASIK was easy and one of the best decisions I have made in my life! I love the freedom that I have now! I had to deal with the hassles of contact lenses for years. After my own High Definition LASIK procedure, the only hurdles I have to jump are on the field! Thank you, Dr. Filutowski!
Truly incredible – I am forever grateful!
LASIK changed my life in an unbelievable way – no more worries about contacts while I enjoy many outdoor activities such as horseback riding and playing in the ocean with my son! Truly incredible – I am forever grateful! Thank you, Dr. Filutowski!
...LASIK has truly changed my life and the way I live it!
Well, I'm here to tell you, LASIK has truly changed my life and the way I live it! I'm now living every waking moment free of glasses and contacts thanks to Dr. Filutowski and his staff! What are you waiting for? Give them a call!
With our busy lifestyle, no contacts or glasses are slowing her down anymore!
My wife Jennifer is beyond thrilled with her vision after having had High Definition LASIK at the Filutowski Cataract & LASIK Institute. With our busy lifestyle, no contacts or glasses are slowing her down anymore! If you are interested in seeing better, I highly recommend them to you.
I love not having to fight with contacts or glasses every morning.
I have to say, I was very impressed and satisfied with my experience at the Filutowski Cataract and Lasik Institute. During my initial phone call, I felt quite comfortable as all my questions were being answered, and promptly set up a consultation. Every staff member I met that day greeted me with a smile and positive attitude. [...] It can be very rare to receive great service from businesses at times, and even more rare to have it provided by a staff that truly cares about their customers or patients. As a result of my surgery, my vision is now 20/15. I love not having to fight with contacts or glasses every morning. I am now more functional at work, as I notice more fine details.
Now that I have my first job, it is so easy to just wake up and live my life without glasses!!
I’d been wearing glasses since 3rd grade, contacts since I was 13. Now that I have my first job, it is so easy to just wake up and live my life without glasses!! I no longer have red marks on my nose, no more contact lens solution spilling in my suitcase. Thank you, Dr. Filutowski
... Every day I am in awe of what I can see.
I have been a musician all my life and wore glasses since I was 11. The very thought of a contact lens becoming dislodged in the middle of a song was my worst onstage nightmare. I chose Dr. Filutowski because of his excellent reputation and because of his serious attention in his work, which is very apparent when you meet him. My vision now is fantastic - every day I am in awe of what I can see. Thank you, Dr. Filutowski!
I enjoy my new vision surfing, but I also enjoy it for all the things I do in my life every day!
Getting my eyes done was something I always knew I would have to do. Now that I have done it, the world is a clearer place. No more squinting - and just being able to read stuff is awesome. And yes, I was nervous about surfing again for the first time but my eyes felt absolutely fine. The best part for me is now when I surf my events, I can read the scoreboards during my heats! I enjoy my new vision surfing, but I also enjoy it for all the things I do in my life every day! Thanks, Dr. Filutowski!
Every day is a much more pleasurable experience.
This year, after 17 years of dealing with contacts, I finally made the decision to have High Definition LASIK. WOW! Every day is a much more pleasurable experience. Especially when it’s late at night, (when my contacts would have been really dry and irritating) now I just smile and enjoy the view. My family is so thankful to Dr. Filutowski and his staff. Life for our family just became a whole lot brighter.
Seeing my alarm clock clearly in the morning was the first sign I had made the right decision.
Having high definition LASIK with Dr. Filutowski was one of the best experiences of my life. He gave me new freedoms that I had never experienced before. Seeing my alarm clock clearly in the morning was the first sign I had made the right decision. My daily headaches from reading and using a computer became nonexistent and driving at night became so much easier. LASIK with Dr. Filutowski is something I would do over and over again thanks to his expertise, passion for his patients, and his track record of being the best.
