I did research on LASIK for two years and went to talk to other doctors performing the procedure, before deciding on Dr. Husain and his team. What a bunch of terrific, caring people! They were honest, thorough and put my mind at ease during the actual procedure. Most importantly, I saw Dr. Husain for the pre-surgery visits, the procedure and the post-surgery visits. He didn’t just give me “a quick look” on the way through the office nor have another doctor examine my eyes. He personally took time to care for me and answered any questions that I had before, during and after the procedure.

I was so pleased I sent thirteen of my friends and co-workers to see him---all of whom had the same wonderful results! I can’t thank Dr. Husain and Deb enough for all their care and professionalism. A life without contacts and glasses is truly a blessing beyond words.

What can I say to the man who granted one of my life wishes? How many times in the 34 years I wore glasses had I wished I didn’t need them? The change in my life has been profound. I thank God that he has blessed you with the skill to heal and the heart you have for your patients. Thank you for your caring nature and concern for my person. I feel I have received a gift that has limitless value. I wish everyone who needs corrective lenses could have this done to them.

I can’t recommend the LASIK procedure highly enough or speak well enough of Dr. Ejaz Husain. The staff and facility are first rate. When I share my experience with others about the surgery, I talk to them about the quality of my life without glasses; I think they all have at least considered pursuing the procedure themselves. As a competitive shooter, my sight is extraordinarily important to me. Without it, I could no longer enjoy a part of my life that gives me much pleasure. One week after the procedure I was seeing 20/15 in each eye. From 20/400 that is an amazing improvement. Dr. Husain and his staff addressed my concerns and had the answers I needed. He is genuinely excited for each individual and the quality of vision he can help them achieve. I think that finding someone you can trust with your eyes speak volumes about the man. Thank you, Dr. Husain.

What a happy day it was when I could see again! See what? The face of the deer that walks up in my yard; the butterfly that lands and takes off from a flower in my garden (from my kitchen window); the roadside signs; my license with no vision restriction; the clock in the middle of the night; fish and coral under water, and, my certificate from a basic pistol class, marked “Top Gun” and signed by the instructors!

Then, of course, there are the things I can no longer see: Steamed- and fogged-over glasses; frame edges; facial oils on lenses, a less attractive face in the mirror; bifocal lines or bifocal blur; and, red marks on the bridge of my nose.

Of all the things that I could have improved a little for my “next 50 years,” I am so happy that I picked laser vision correction with Dr. Husain.

Thank you so much for the extreme attention to detail. I just LOVE that! It makes a patient feel so secure. You know I recommend you to everyone; of course many of my friends have already come to you!

I am writing to you today to say thanks for freeing me from the bonds of glasses and contacts. In February 2002 I made the decision to research the Lasik procedure and consider it for myself. I did research the various clinics and surgeons in the Des Moines area that performed the procedure and I selected you to do the procedure. I felt very comfortable with your conservative approach toward the Lasik procedure. In fact, you indicated to me if I were not the appropriate candidate you would tell me. As it turned out I was an acceptable candidate and my Lasik procedure was completed in April.

Since April my world has changed. There are no more contacts or glasses (finally threw them away yesterday but kept the frames for readers just in case). At one day after surgery (April 2nd I had 20/20 vision and as of yesterday (April 8th) I have 20/15 vision. As we discussed prior to the procedure, with my contacts I had very good vision. Today I can truly say my eyesight is better without contacts. Unbelievable!!!!

This past week my friends asked me if the procedure was painful. I have indicated to them the only pain I had was about one hour after the procedure (scratchy eyes) and that went away within the hour. On April 2nd went back to work, the recovery time is great. I still keep asking myself why things went so well for me. My response; go into this process with a positive attitude, have confidence in yourself, and most importantly have trust and confidence in your physician. In this case it was you, there was never a doubt in my mind the first time I met you the procedure would be successful. Again thanks and I will see you in about six weeks for my next checkup.

Lisa H.

I am 35 years old and I have been legally blind since I was about 11 years old. My vision had always been corrected with glasses or contacts. In March of 1999, my parents, who both see Dr. Husain for all their eye exams, asked me if I would like to have Dr. Husain do the Lasik surgery on my eyes to correct my vision. I decided to talk with him about it and was very impressed with his detailed discussion about laser vision correction. After I made my decision to proceed with the surgery he was meticulous about checking my eyes repeatedly to make sure he would get the best results possible for my eyes. He is very cautious, making sure that he does whatever is best for your vision. The procedure itself was painless and not scary at all; everyone was very encouraging and everything went smoothly. As soon as the procedure was over I could tell a difference in my vision and I started to cry because I was so excited. Dr. Husain was just as excited as I was, how great to have a Dr. with that much enthusiasm! I believe that Dr. Husain really has a passion to help people have better vision and it shows in his work!

I now have 20/20 vision! I can see my alarm clock in the morning, I can go swimming now hassle free, my eyes are never irritated anymore, and the list of benefits goes on and on. I thank God every day for this procedure to correct my vision. I believe even more importantly though, that you must have the best Dr. in order to make this happen. I believe that I had the best and why would you want to trust your eyes to anyone else?

Just a few words of thanks following my recent LASIK eye Surgery.
My vision continues to improve but nothing could improve my opinion of you and your staff. Making the decision to go through with the procedure is tough enough, but getting over the fear-factor is the toughest part.

You and your staff did a wonderful job of erasing my fears through thorough pre-operation education, caring enough to physically hold my hand during the procedure and personal follow-up by the same physician who put the laser to my eyes. Thanks to you I can see clearly now without my glasses but I can also see clearly that you, Doctor Husain, are THE MAN when it comes to LASIK eye surgery.

Rachel J.

This letter is a long time coming. I had to wear glasses for the first time at age nine. I clearly remember the realization at age sixteen that I would always need glasses or contacts in order to see - and the depression that resulted from that realization. I graduated to contact lenses as a young adult, but after my first child was born, I developed astigmatism in both eyes and could no longer wear any kind of contacts comfortably. I did try the gas-permeable variety for a year or so, but went back to glasses in the early 90’s.

During early 2000, 1 heard about your practice through Van and Bonnie in the show on WHO Radio. I waited for several months hoping the price of the procedure would go down, but decided that not only would it be worth the money, but that I needed to do this sooner rather than later. So I made the appointment, found out that I was a good candidate and decided to go for it!

When I woke up on the morning of August 14, 2000 I put on my glasses for the last time. By that evening I could read the credits on the television screen from six feet away - without glasses! When I woke up the next morning and took off the shields, I could see well enough to drive myself to work and my first post-procedural follow-up appointment without my glasses! What a revelation!

Even now, over a year later, I am amazed by how clearly I can see day and night. My vision prior to August 14, 2000 was 20/400. On August 15th it was 20/20. Now it is 20/15 - much better than 1 had ever hoped. I realize that you can’t guarantee this kind of result, but you went for it; and in my case achieved it. Thank you so much! The freedom from glasses and contacts is something I never thought would be possible for me. It is truly amazing.

Your record of successes speaks for itself as well. I had heard some of the horror stories about bad experiences with this type of procedure and have to say that if other surgeons had your professional ethics, those incidents (or most of them) would never have happened.

Thank you for everything. My experience with Dr. Husain has been a truly positive one. You and your staff have treated me with respect at all times. Information on the Lasik procedure and my suitability for it was given to me clearly and honestly. I was even given a written test to make sure that I understood what was going on and that my expectations were realistic! I think that that kind of attention to detail is wonderful and I always highly recommend you to anyone who is considering Lasik.

After 50 years of corrective lenses, it is incredible to view the world free of constraints of my old “thick” eyewear. I had hoped for this miracle and your excellent surgical skills made it possible. Thank you for the compassionate and professional pre-operative and post-operative attention I received while in your care. You addressed all of my concerns and eliminated all of my apprehensions.

I am also indebted to your top-flight medical staff that played a tremendous role in the preliminary consultations, optical measurements, and follow-up healthcare. Their sensitive “bedside” manner and positive demeanor are a compliment to your medical practice.

The collateral benefit to this surgery is in my physical appearance, giving me renewed sense of confidence in my personal and professional endeavors. It would be an honor for me to share my confidence in you with any referral that desire cataract surgery. Again, thank you for one of the best gifts I have ever received in my life.

I just wanted to take a minute to let you know how much I have appreciated having you for my doctor. I had my left eye cataract surgery at the end of December and just finished with the right eye.  It has amazed me to watch the process for the eye surgeries that you do, from the beginning; such as: the visit to the office, the detailed exams that I went through personally with you, the actual procedure itself and the follow-up.

Unfortunately, there are those of us who are perfectionists and do not have a lot of patience, I fall into this category. This has been such a well-managed process for me. The professionalism that every one has shown me has also been very much appreciated.

Dr. Husain, you are just wonderful to your patients and we all know how very busy you are each day. I think that each of us feels that you have nothing but the very best in mind for us.

My sight continues to improve and I look forward to much more time spent on reading, which is my favorite pastime.

I am writing to thank you for the fine work that you did in removing my cataract this year. I am the person with the severe corneal disease (Fuchs’ Dystrophy) and am so thrilled that I can see so well. I’ll probably always have trouble focusing because of the dystrophy but having the cataracts removed has really helped a lot.

The surgery went very well and I am completely recovered. I’ll be sure to recommend you to anyone else; my sister has cataracts starting so she will be seeing you in a few years. Thanks again.

I was so sure that increasingly poor vision would erode the quality of my life as I continue to age – that there was nothing I could do but except the inevitable. You changed all that. Life still offers miracles - cataract surgery under your skilled hands is one.

Three little words – I CAN SEE! The gift of sight is priceless. You are an artist, you and your staff have my deepest gratitude and respect. Thank you so much for changing my life!

I want to share with you how pleased I am with the successful results of my recent cataract surgery. It has exceeded all my expectations. With the gradual deterioration of my vision over the past year, the simplest task had become frustrating – threading a needle, reading, even driving. I did not realize all I was missing.

Throughout the entire process, I experienced no pain or discomfort. I found both the medical and your office staff professional and caring. Thank you for providing me with years of independence and improving life style. I am truly grateful!

After visiting with Dr. Husain, who was highly recommended by several co-works (and Van and Bonnie), he recommended the Tecnis multifocal lens. I was back to work the day after the first surgery and two days after the second and now feel like I have bionic eyes.  It's CRAZY! The procedure is so non-invasive and the recovery is amazingly quick.  I will always be grateful to Dr. Husain and his staff.  Compassionate, informative, friendly, and simply the BEST...why would you go anywhere else?

A little over a month ago I was wearing corrective lenses at a -12.00 and -10.00 power.  I also had presbyopia and astigmatism.  I had Tecnis multifocal lenses implanted in both eyes now I see 20/15 with NO GLASSES. I am amazed each day to wake up and see things as this is a totally a new experience after decades of life.  The surgery is absolutely life changing and worth every eye drop, and the cost pales in comparison to the benefit.  Yes, the incredible nearsightedness, presbyopia, and astigmatism were all successfully addressed.  Thanks to Dr. Ejaz Husain and everyone at Associated Ophthalmologists I have a new outlook on life!

I want to thank you for the wonderful surgery you performed on me. The results could not be better and I am thrilled with my new abilities…. It truly seems miraculous. People used to dread having cataract surgery, but now, with your skills and the new ReSTOR lens, I tell them they should be looking forward to it!

Your professionalism, as well as that of all your staff made this a very pleasant experience. I look forward to encouraging my friends to see you when they have a need.

Thank you so very much.

Dear Dr. Husain:

There is not a day that goes by when I do not suddenly stop at some point and think “I can see clearly with no glasses or contacts.” It is amazing. I am 53 years old and I was suffering vision loss from cataracts. Fortunately for me, and people like me, there is wonderful technology and an outstanding doctor in our area. His name is Dr. S. Ejaz Husain.

The following are just a few of the activities that I appreciate every day since my cataract surgery with the ReSTOR lens implant. This amazing procedure has enabled me to see clearly again:

  • Opening my eyes to clear vision each and every morning
  • Not fumbling for glasses to read in the middle of the night
  • Threading a needle to sew
  • Removing the smallest of stitches
  • Putting on my makeup
  • Reading recipes as I am cooking
  • Being able to read labels and instructions on bottles in the shower
  • Driving
  • Reading
  • Going out on a date with my husband
  • And many more

I am very grateful.  

Thank you, Dr. Husain, for your great skill and care.

Dr. Husain explained to me that I could have cataracts removed and a ReSTOR lens could be implanted if I qualified for it…… I was then examined by your “fantastic” staff. Everyone was so nice to me and explained everything so thoroughly.

I am so grateful to all of the doctors and staff of Dr. Husain’s office. They all treat you like they really do care about the patient.

Dear Dr. Husain

Thank you, Dr. Husain for restoring my eyesight!

It has almost been a year since you performed cataract surgery on me…... I am so glad you shared with me the options of the ReSTOR intraocular lens and I am glad that I requested that we proceed with using this lens.

You gave me all of the options, and I am so pleased and happy that I do not need to use glasses at all- I feel like a young girl again, not having to search for cumbersome glasses. I overwhelmingly admire your very comprehensive education; follow up leading to and following surgery.

Thank you so much- I have been “singing” your praises to everyone- and I am so very pleased with my “bionic” ReSTOR eyes!

Very warm regards.
