I scheduled a same day exam. The place was clean and just fine. They do these surgeries in bulk quantities. And why not? The computers pretty much do the work. They slip you a valume to calm you down, give you some eye drops and you wait. Your name gets called and in you go. DURING mine she kept saying, "Look at the light look at the light. The green light." I replied, "I can't see the Fu*#ing green light cause you got this Fu$#ing laser in my eye" She said, "Well do you want to be FU*#ING BLIND?!"...... Needless to say she had a point. I tried my hardest to focus on the green light. One year later my eyes are 20/18 Right, 20/13 Left. $1000 Total. Worth every penny.

This place is basically an eye mill. First off, it's filthy, the reception area had black marks all over the walls. They had household furniture throughout the offices instead of sanitary furniture. They rush you through and don't even do a complete exam, no dialation which I was told is an FDA requirement. I was told I was a perfect candidate, after two more opinions I learned that I definitely was not. My cornea was too thin and thus needed PRK instead, in case I ever needed touch ups in the future. The price was great $800 for both eyes, but there is no way I'm getting my eyes done in a dirty eye mill. Seriously do your research and think about it before going with the best price. I decided to go with Lasik Vision Institute, and their custom wavefront. Now I'm paying $3200 for both eyes, PRK of course but I think its completely worth it. They are professional, knowlegable and clean. The surgeon even interned at Yale and Johns Hopkins. Now I'm not saying they are the best choice for you, but make sure you look at all your options.

While advertising low prices, the exam is not very comprehensive. This place will take anyone. I went for Lasik, was uncomfortable with the pushy "salesperson" and then went for a second opinion. I was told that I should not have the surgery. The second place did not want to do surgery at all, did not try to sell me anything, and I was thrilled that I did not jeopardize my sight. This is a hard sell place and I was very uncomfortable. Please go for another opinion before you allow someone to cut your eyes.

Inaccurate reviews are unhelpful. I'm not sure who owned/owns Valley Eye center, but the MD, Stella Chou, is board certified via the state board website. Dr. Buzard had a complaint and the board dropped the complaint because he was willing to inactivate his license. See... http://medboard.nv.gov/Disciplinary%20Actions/BUZARD,%20KURT%20ANDRE,%20M.D..htm If anyone has had first hand experience with Valley Eye Center, please review as I would like to find out more.

What is KayDee's problem? The other reviewer is right. Dr. Buzard never lost his license and never worked at this horrible place. Why is he brought into this? I was a former patient too and he saved my sight. Why doesn't KayDee google Dr Vikas Jain from Ohio who started this place? Scary scary stuff. He's the one who lost his license and his wife owns this place because he doesn't have a license. She's not even an eye doctor. Good luck to you KayDee...you'll need it...then again, you're probably an employee who gets paid to write the reviews.
