Wow what a life changing event having my
LASIK surgery!!!! For one, I felt so honored that Dr. Martin and
the gang at OptiVue would want to do this for me!
The experience is just something you don’t get a lot of these
days- excellent service, kind and really caring people, and
I was totally impressed with the rapport which all the staff
clearly displays with not just me but with everyone. I was a bit
nervous- only cause with me if something can go wrong it usually
does. But that was not the case at all.
Dr. Martin thoroughly discussed my treatment
options and the procedure so that I would fully understand what
was going to happen before, during, and after the surgery.
And boy he was accurate when I woke up only to be able to really
see for the first time! I thought to myself… Wow, I have truly
been blessed. I would like to thank all the guys and girls and
everyone at OptiVue for what they have done for me!!! Thanks,

I am thrilled! Everyone was
wonderful! I even brought them Panera for breakfast the morning
of my follow up appointment. I don't know what you did but it
worked! I have been raving about it! All my sports buddies keep
calling to check on me and I am raving about Dr. Martin, the
staff, and how they let my wife watch the surgery. I can see
I got my first pair of glasses
when I was in sixth grade. I remember I couldn’t see the board
very well. I don’t remember if I got tested privately or if the
school did it, but eventually it was discovered that I needed
glasses. So fine. It’s what you do. You went and got glasses, it
was the highest technology, the latest thing!
Over the years how many pair did I buy? I don’t know…100… 150?
How many did I lose? 100…150? How many did I scratch? 100… 50?
How many pairs of sunglasses did I have to buy that were
prescription because I couldn’t just go to the drugstore and buy
a pair? I fixed all of this about 6 months ago with OptiVue.
Optivue has the single most
advanced laser technology out there. Dr. Martin and his whole
staff live and work right here in the Toledo area. They don’t
come in from somewhere else and do a couple surgeries and then
leave and say oh we can get you next Tuesday when we’re back in
town. A lot of these places do this, but not OptiVue. Go in and
talk to them about CustomVue, which is what I had and lose the
OptiVue is the place I’ve talked about since I had LASIK surgery
done. There are obviously lots of places that you can get this
done, but let me ask you a question. Wouldn’t you want to go to
a place that’s done ten-fifteen thousand of them? Dr. Martin and
I were joking around before my surgery and I said, “Now you’ve
done this before?” and he laughed and said, “Yeah, we as a group
have done about 16,000 of them.”
I think Dr. Martin himself has done around 10,000. Enough that
he probably knows what he’s doing. It’s bladeless LASIK surgery.
It’s the latest technique. Talk about vision that you don’t have
to worry about because you can get the CustomVue which comes
with lifetime enhancements. If you need a little tweaking 5
years later it’s included. They offer financing, too. And they
do this all right here in Toledo. They don’t come in from
Cleveland or Cincinnati do a few surgeries and go home. This is
home, and that meant a lot to me.
Did the lake thing - out to Maumee Bay. Before we left my wife
and I went through our checklist- cooler CHECK- sun block CHECK-
beach towels CHECK- glasses NOPE don’t need ‘em. Went to OptiVue
for laser vision correction and until then I never knew how nice
it was to not wear glasses in the summertime. It’s amazing just
to be able to buy sunglasses off the rack. Prescriptions are so
expensive. But I stopped at the drugstore on the way to the
lake, and nine bucks later I’m out of there with UV protection.
What a life changing experience! Talk to Dr. Martin about
CustomVue- that’s what I did. No more contacts to keep up with,
no more solution, no more getting sand in your eyes, no more
glasses to lose, drop, sit on, step on, or break. For the first
time since I was in sixth grade I did not have to wear glasses
on the beach. All because of Dr. Martin and bladeless LASIK at

When it comes to a person's eyes...it can be very unsettling
to hear that you have cataracts and that surgery is needed. But your incredible "chair side manner"
made me feel at ease and realize I was in good hands. Not only did you explain the surgery in terms
I could understand, but you have a calming way about you...you made me feel like everything was going
to be ok. You were also able to mix in your sense of humor and charm. After meeting with you I knew
there was nothing to worry about! Since the surgery many people ask "how's your vision?" It’s like
watching a regular TV and an HDTV... you notice the difference in clarity and definition the first time
you watch the HDTV. That's the way I feel everyday. I see everything clearer! I guess that’s why they
call them High Definition Lenses! Thanks again Dr. Martin! Here's to great vision for years to come!

I knew that Dr. Martin was the only doctor I
wanted to do Cataract Surgery on me because I had seen so many
good results on other patients. I was treated very
professionally by the nursing staff. I had a follow up call from
Dr. Martin the night of my surgery. It wasn't a nurse, but the
doctor taking time to call me at home and check to see how I was
doing. That meant a lot to me. My vision was good the same day
of surgery. I experienced no pain or blurry vision. Very happy
with the whole experience.
The surgery was very easy was over before I
knew it. Dr Martin and all the staff were great. Everything was
explained day of surgery by the nurses as what they we giving in
medication before surgery and after surgery everything was
explained what to do at home.
It was nice as both Shelly [my daughter] and my husband watched
the surgery which I think educated them both.
I would recommend the multifocal lens. Kathy Armstrong [a
surgical counselor with OptiVue] was very helpful in explaining
about the surgery and what to do prior to surgery to get ready.
When my cataracts were diagnosed and became
operable, I was fully confident of Dr. Martin’s surgical skill
and had observed the high level of patient care received by all
patients of the ASC. The surgical staff is a highly trained,
experienced team that takes great pride in each of their
responsibilities and the care I received could not have been any
more responsive, caring or complete.
I was aware of the multi-focal lens that can now be implanted
during cataract surgery and did choose the lenses recommended by
Dr. Martin. Although it does take some time for each patient to
adjust to the new lenses, I was very pleased with my results.
It has been a year and a half since my
surgery and I remain free of the need for glasses. Since I am an
accountant, I spend most of my day reading either a computer
screen or little numbers on a printed page - all easily handled
with my new eyes. I would confidently recommend Dr. Martin and
his associates for anyone requiring cataract surgery or any
other ophthalmic care required.
Overall my experience was excellent.
The coordinator I saw for my pre-op and post-op was wonderful and let
me know exactly what to expect. They made me feel comfortable about
the procedure I was about to undergo. Everyone was great and very friendly.
From the very first phone call my experience
at OptiVue was awesome! My first appointment was so thorough and the facility
was very invitin. The staff was friendly and willing to answer my questions
in a way that was understandable to me, including video and personal experiences.
After my first visit, I received several calls along the way to inform me of the
steps I should be taking, the drops I should be using, and reminding me of future appointments.
The day of surgery, I was taken in almost immediately. The staff made the environment
light and joked with me, relieving some of my anxiety. The surgery itself passed quickly.
Dr. Martin talked with me the entire time, calming my nerves and encouraging me, letting
me know exactly what was going on during the surgery. I left the surgical room being able to see immediately.
It was amazing! I would recommend OptiVue to my family, friends, and customers. I had such a
great experience and I will always remember when I started seeing with my new eyes!
I went from 20/200 on Friday, January 13, to 20/15 on Saturday,
January 14. The only thing I was upset about was that I didn't do this sooner!! What an amazing
difference in sight. No more contacts or glasses!! I love it and would highly recommend this
procedure to anyone. In and out in 15 minutes!! Thanks Dr. Martin!
I was pleasantly surprised
that my vision was so good immediately post op!! Doctor said
with AST vision gets better with time and I guess I assumed I
would still be “blind” post op! What a great job and business
you have. I left seeing better than I had since I was 10 years
of age. People must think you are gods! Thank you!
My experience was a pleasant
one. I am not going to miss the dependency of reaching for my
glasses the moment my feet hit the floor. The personnel in the
office, Matt, Kelly, and Dr. Martin were very professional,
attentive, and most pleasant. Thanks to this office I can have a
better picture of vision to view my world with.
I wish I had done this LASIK
surgery sooner than I did. It was the most painless surgery. It
was so quick… seven seconds of laser on the one eye and thirteen
seconds on the other eye. It was amazing to me that when I awoke
from the 4-5 hour resting period that I could lay on the couch
and read the time on the VCR, as well as on ESPN- the bottom
headlines that scroll across. I would highly recommend LASIK
I, of course, like most
people, was nervous about having surgery done. All of my fears
were in vain. The staff was fantastic- the surgery was fast and
painless. The recovery was much faster and easier than I could
imagine. How gifted all of you are to be able to give me almost
perfect vision in such a short period of time.
Thank you for making my life simpler (no contacts) and much
clearer! You all are wonderful. I can’t thank you enough.
The whole process was just
awesome. Everyone was knowledgeable and friendly. The waits were
never very long and the facility is clean and comfortable. The
procedure itself was more wonderful than I expected.
It was quick, efficient, and I experience absolutely no pain or
discomfort during or after the procedure. I did not expect to
walk out of surgery already able to see without my glasses. The
clarity fluctuations and “halo” night vision I experience were
minor and disappeared quickly. My return check-ups have been
comfortable and all of my question answered immediately.
It has been two months since
the LASIK and all I can say is WOW! I see things more clearly
now than I did, even while I was wearing my glasses or had my
contacts in. Dr. Martin was FANTASTIC! He spoke to me while he
was doing the surgery , so I knew exactly what to expect. He
even called the night after surgery to make sure everything was
good and asked if I had any questions. My husband and I had it
done together, and both of us are nothing short of thrilled with
the results! Thank you!!!

I have three words to describe
my LASIK experience…awesome, awesome, awesome! The doctors and
staff were excellent. The whole procedure was totally painless.
I would recommend it to anyone and have already. Two of my
friends have had the procedure and feel the same way. After 37
years of eyeglasses, I am speechless. Thank you everyone at
Wow! Very impressed with OptiVue and the staff
!!! My mother had to have cataract surgery. So of course I was
worried. I live in Illinois, so I would go back home to Ohio to
be there for her and to be sure everything went ok. Everything
went great! I had nothing to worry about. My mother really liked
Dr. Martin and said he was GREAT! The return check-ups were the
best! We never had to wait long. Dr. Marchant was WONDERFUL!!!
He was very nice, kind and caring and would answer all our
questions and concerns. He would take the time to explained
things very well. Excellent service!!! If I ever had to have any
work done to my eyes I would travel back to Ohio to have the
work done there, I was that impressed with them.Thank you all so
much from a very grateful daughter!!!

Everyday I am thankful that I had Lasik at
Optivue with Dr. Martin. I cannot express enough, how much
candidates for the procedure should have it done at Optivue! You
have nothing to fear!
I had astigmatism and it was no problem. The staff at Optivue
are friendly, helpful and just fantastic. Outside of the Lasik
procedure, Optivue has earned a client that will continually
entrust them with her eye health! Thank you so much Optivue! You
