Amazing. Getting Lasisk was the best decision I have ever made. Dr. Lobanoff was very nice and explained everything in great detail. Although the day of my procedure I was still a little unsure (since this is my only pair of eyes) but Dr. Lobanoff talked to me the whole time letting me know what was going on at each step of the surgery. I was in and out of the clinic in less then a hour and in and out of the laser room in less then 10 minutes. If you are considering it and still on the fence please set up your consultation and see Dr. Lobanoff and he will put your mind at ease.
Sunglasses Shopping Time!.
All my life, one of my most secret desires was to be able to wear d-bag sunglasses like my friends. You know the kind, the big, popular, retro sunglasses that everyone gets to have fun wearing. But being in glasses since the 4th grade (and having a stronger prescription) I never got the opportunity.
I recently had Custom LASIK surgery with Dr. Mark Lobanoff. The procedure was stunningly fast and absolutely painless, and the next day I was seeing slightly better than 20/20. On the sunny morning drive to my post-op checkup, I wore a pair of 20 year old Vuarnet sunglasses that had been a gift from my father back in 1992. Sunglasses that I had saved in a box and never been able to wear before
Finally wearing vintage Vuarnets is as awesome as my vision-- Thanks Doc!
True Customer Service. Dr Lobanoff and the staff at North Suburban Eye Specialists were just amazing for the whole process. Meeting with the doctor right away and having a consultation with the Dr doing your surgery was a plus. I shopped around and I didn't find a better price, and I didn't find better service then at North Suburban. Their referral program is great too!! The kicker for me, though, is that they treat you like you're a customer for life, but in all reality, they get all your moeny up front and you may never have to see them again, and THAT, my friends, is TRUE CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! Great work!!
Best in the Midwest!.
We flew up to go with the best Lasik Center in the midwest and was it ever worth it. I was blind and now I see... like an eagle! Thanks dr. Lobanoff, my vision is far better than with glasses or contacts. Everything is just richer and crisper - it is like a all-you-can-eat Cornish buffet for the eyes, if you know what I mean.
Quick and Painless, "The Wolf" is truly a skilled professional..
Truly a life changing few minutes. I lead a very active lifestyle hunting, fishing, camping, biking just about anything you can do outside I’m there. During a canoeing trip last year I lost my expensive prescription sunglasses in the river. That’s when I started doing my research on Lasik and doctors. I found one of the best doctors in the state and probably that nation (Dr. Lobanoff) was only 2hrs away. After meeting with him and his staff at North Suburban Eye Specialist I knew the trip was worth it. Dr. Lobanoff and his staff were beyond all my expectations. They explained the Lasik procedure thoroughly and answered all of my questions. Now I’m seeing 20/15 and can buy a pair of cheep sunglasses if I lose them in the river.
Couldn't have asked for a BETTER experience. I was skeptical at first since they were on the radio and I figured the radio personalities were raving only for the free service...BUT I WAS WRONG! Dr. Lobanoff and his team are amazing. They are up front about everything - full disclosure on cost, what to expect during and after, and want you to call about anything. They want you informed and after your procedure they want you healed and seeing your best. I wouldn't trust these baby blues to just anyone. I had an astigmatism in both eyes and was a candidate for both the traditional and custom - they didn't try to push the sale of doing the custom b/c traditional still would give me a great outcome - i was seeing 20/15 the next morning. Wish I would have done this sooner.
Best investment of my life!. I would recommend anyone to go to North Suburban if you're looking into lasik. The staff there are SUPER nice and Dr. Mark Lobanoff walks you through everything so you're comfortable with the entire process. It only took about 30 seconds per eye. I slept for a couple hours and I was able to see clearly!! The next day I went in for a follow up appointment and my vision was at 20/15! I am amazed by the results and would do all over again in a heartbeat. I wouldn't go anywhere else for lasik!
Why did I wait............ I wore glasses since 2003, after I deployed 3 times using glasses with inserts for goggles, sunglasses, and protective mask, you know how much glasses stink. When I returned from Iraq the last time I said that I was going to get Lasik. I gave up glasses on Jan 3, 2012. I had an appointment with Dr Lobanoff; he said that I was a candidate for Lasik. From that point, he described the entire process, no hidden worries or changes in the Lasik process. On the day of the Lasik procedure, he walked me through the Lasik process. There was minimal discomfort during the Lasik process; I had more discomfort from Iraq sand than this Lasik process. There is no need to worry about pain or what is going to happen next, I knew every detail prior to the event. The next day I returned for the post Lasik exam. The assistant gave me vision exam and the eye care procedures for the next month, then Dr. Lobanoff gave me the final exam. The entire process is simple and worry free. I should have done this earlier.
LASIK - PRK Surgery. I was told by my regular eye doctor that I was not a candidate for LASIK due to my extreme nearsightedness (-10) & astigmatism. But I wanted a second opinion, so I scheduled a consultation with Dr. Lobanoff at NSES. Not only was every one in his office extremely kind & thorough, but I discovered I was a candidate & had several options regarding treatment. I did a lot of research & asked quite a few questions before I chose PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy). PRK has a longer recovery time, but it leaves more corneal tissue behind than LASIK, so if further corrections were needed as I aged, it would be possible. With regular LASIK, I would not have been able to have additional corrections if needed due to my large initial correction. Not that I planned on having any issues, I prefer to plan for the worst and anticipate the best! I am writing this review the day after my surgery & I can unequivocally say this was the best decision I have ever made & I would highly recommend both Dr. Lobanoff and PRK to anyone thinking about having laser correction. A few suggestions: take the Valium they offer & relax, you're in good hands! Also, keep yourself calm & get some sleep, your state of mind can have a considerable affect on your recovery. Dr. Lobanoff will walk you through the entire procedure step-by-step before you enter the operating room. The actual operation takes only a few minutes, and before you know it, you're done. After a quick peek at your eyes and a brief consultation to ensure you don't have any questions, you are sent home with a "recovery kit" and encouraged to rest. Don't upset yourself as your vision begins getting blurry a couple of days after the surgery, this only last for a few days & then your vision will begin getting better & better. Day 2 my vision is 20/20 and I am so pleased, I cannot wait to see (pun intended) how perfect my vision will be in a week!
LASIK Surgery - Best Decision. I heard on KDWB about Dr. Lobanoff and I went for the free consultation, I was sold when he told how long he had practiced in LASIK while in school compared to most eye specialist who only practice it for about a weekend to become a specialist. I was only in the building for a little over an hour and I was only in the surgery room for 8 minutes! I didn't feel a thing and you really don't see a whole lot. He walked me through everything before I went in and when I was on the table he talked me through everything. I could see as I sat myself up on the table and the next day was just like night and day. He gave me all the drops I needed and he told me to call if I had any questions for concerns. The whole team was just great! I am so happy that I had this done and I am extremely happy that I had this done at North Suburban Eye Specialist.
