What Our Patients Are Saying…

It is hard to put into words the full appreciation I have for Dr. Porter and his team. I finally made the decision to have LASIK and could not be happier. I have worn glasses/contacts for a very long time and have had horrible eyesight for as long as I can remember. Waking up the first morning after surgery, being able to see, literally brought me to tears (happy ones of course). I experienced results immediately after the surgery. I was obviously nervous but Dr. Porter and his team are so kind and patient. They walk you through the entire process and answer any and all questions. Thank you to everyone at Porter Ophthalmology My only regret is waiting so long to get this done! The experience has been truly life changing!

Dr. Porter and his staff are very friendly and professional. I recently had SMILE surgery with Dr. Porter and the results are amazing! I can’t believe how well I can see now! Dr. Porter recommended SMILE over LASIK due to my participation in contact sports. He explained to me that with SMILE there is a much smaller incision made to the eye as compared to LASIK, which is why it was better for people who are involved in contact sports. He also explained to me that the SMILE surgery was relatively new, and that he was the only eye surgeon who performs the procedure in NC. At first I was a little skeptical since the procedure was so new, but he alleviated my concerns by answering a few additional questions I had, and made sure I was comfortable choosing the SMILE surgery before proceeding. The procedure itself didn’t take long, and was pain free. One of the best decisions I’ve ever made!! Porter is the best Ophthalmologist in the world! I don’t say that lightly. I had an accident that would normally have meant losing my eye completely. He helped save the eye and even helped restore an amazing amount of vision in that eye. I’d recommend Dr. Porter and his staff to anyone, anywhere, anytime! Keep up the good work Dr. Porter!

If you’re looking for a Doctor to trust for a Lasik procedure, look no further, you found him. I had LASIK 3 weeks ago and I’m so glad I chose Dr. Porter. As a healthcare provider, I have met many doctors and I have to say Dr. Porter is one of the best in any field. What sets him apart from the rest? 1) He meets with you twice before your surgery day and will make sure he answers all your questions. 2) He and his staff are very genuine, nice and extremely thorough. 3) They accommodate YOU. I had my procedure done on friday when the office is normally closed. It was just me, Dr. Porter and his staff. What other doctor would do that for a single patient no questions asked? Individual results vary I’m sure, but I had almost no watering and no pain at all following my procedure. It was surprisingly pain free, and Dr. Porter talks through the whole procedure, explaining each step, making you at ease and calming any nerves.This was the best decision of my life and I only wish I had made it sooner.
