Lasik / PRK Testimonials

Dear Dr. Newman,

As you know, I am a Police Officer and am assigned to my Department’s Tactical Operation Unit, (S.W.A.T), as a “Designated Marksman”. My additional duties are as the Lead Firearms Instructor for the Department and Team. For these reasons, my vision has a very important role in me being able to accomplish these tasks.
The LASIK procedure has made my life and job easier. For the first time since I was a child, I no longer have to worry about my eyeglasses being lost or broken. I also don’t have to worry about my contacts drying out or being hassled by having to remove/replace them everyday. The LASIK procedure has corrected my vision to 20/20 day and night. It has also allowed me to choose the protective eyewear and sunglasses that I want to use, rather than being limited to expensive prescription lenses and eyeglasses. I can now read a book from a foot away, read a vehicle license plate from a car length, or see a target at 100 yards, all with out having to worry. Once again, Thank You.

– Jerry Davis, Avondale Police Department

“I couldn’t believe how much better I could see immediately following the surgery. I would never have guessed that you could have that much of a dramatic change in just a few minutes of time.
My golf game is better than ever ! It’s been as if I was playing a new game that I never before had the opportunity to play! The golf ball, as well as the actual golf hole, looks bigger and more distinct than I have ever seen it before.
When I am playing golf, I am able to judge distance better and I am more consistent. As any golfer would tell you, a person’s peripheral vision is “key” to being able to putt. My peripheral vision is much better after the LASIK surgery.
My ability to see the “line, slope and distance” of the green has improved dramatically, and I expect my score to continue to improve as I adjust to seeing things that I never saw before!”

– Mike Malaska, Golf Instructor

As an Endodontist (root canal specialist), the ability to see clearly is absolutely necessary to provide quality of service to my patients. As a healthcare specialist myself, I knew, without a doubt, that I wanted someone who specialized and had vast experience in this highly technical procedure. Dr. Newman was referred to me by several other Valley area health professionals who touted him as the BEST. They were absolutely correct! Dr. Newman is very thorough and professional. Unlike many LASIK providers, I knew that Dr. Newman, himself, is a seasoned “top doc” in this field, not simply an associate in a multi-doctored eye clinic who just graduated a month previous. It’s been about five years since my LASIK procedure and my vision is still perfect! No more bent glass frames, ripped contact lenses, or other visual nuisances. I HIGHLY recommend LASIK with Dr. Bruce Newman to anyone who is a qualified candidate for the procedure.

I went online and found Dr. Newman. I went down to his office for a consultation and found that both the Doctor and staff were very nice and professional. They explained everything to me and answered all my questions. The big day came and I was very nervous. Finally the procedure was over and my eyesight restored. I’m glad I had Lasik done! I see so clear and enjoy the world around me! I recommend The Newman Eye Center to everyone! It was the BEST decision I ever made, hands down!

Dr. Newman corrected my vision with Custom Wavefront LASIK. It is truly miraculous to be able to see better than 20/20 without optical aid. I can swim without worrying about losing my contacts, or bike and run without glasses sliding off or irritating my contacts with swear. I can even use my telescope at night with no detrimental effects to my night vision . Even after two years, every morning when I wake up and see my alarm clock, I’m reminded of how much better my life has become thanks to Dr. Newman!

I had LASIK 5 years ago and it was the best thing I ever did. Dr. Newman is the BEST!

I had Lasik 2 years ago at age 41 and I still have 20/20 vision. I am extremely happy with the surgery, the care of Dr. Newman, his staff and the lasting result.

LASIK is absolutely amazing! My vision is better now than ever before with glasses or contacts. LASIK has truly changed my life.

Before surgery I had worn glasses for over 20 years. Glasses got in my way everyday. I was constantly having problems with contacts and glasses. After my surgery I couldn\’t believe my life w/o contacts and glasses. Had I known how happy I was going to be I would have never waited! I recommend Lasik!

In 2005, I couldn’t even see the alarm clock without my glasses. I was skeptical, given that you only have one set of eyes, but Dr. Newman did a great job. Now 4 years later, I have 20/20 vision and can swim, play sports, wear sunglasses, and see in the morning without any aid. Thanks, Dr. Newman!

Before my surgery I had the worst time with seeing the world around me. Everything was blurry and out of focus. I play sports so glasses were not for me. I tried contacts but with the dirt and wind in the air, my eyes were always dry. I decided for my birthday to have Lasik done a couple of years ago. I am so grateful for the procedure, and the gift of sight!

Having the LASIK surgery has helped relieve me from issues I had with allergies. I love it!

I had LASIK eye surgery and have perfect vision after 9 years. I’m currently re-enlisting into the U.S. Airforce reserve.

LASIK is absolutely amazing! My vision is better now than ever before with glasses or contacts. LASIK has truly changed my life.

My vision is incredible, I can open my eyes and see!

Before surgery I had trouble with distance and reading. Since my Lasik procedure with correction for distance and near vision, I no longer need glasses. Its GREAT!

Having my vision corrected through LASIK surgery has been a life changing experience for me.

I was so excited about my LASIK results that I gave my daughter the procedure for her birthday.


Having Lasik with Dr. Newman was one of the best decisions I ever made! Not only was it quick, painless, and a breeze to coordinate with his wonderful staff,  but the results were immediate!

After a short nap, I was up making dinnr and watching a movie in full  HD with perfect 20/20 vision!
