Ratings for Dr. D. STEPHEN Hollis
My daughter Jennifer had eye surgery today with Dr. Hollis. I was skeptical after reading reviews from this page. We decided to go ahead and do the consultation. The waiting room was packed with patients and family members which was comforting. I watch the staff be kind to everyone and genuinely concerned about everyone's questions and concerns. I want to add ...Steve is rather amazing especially since he is the first one you meet for testing. Then the infamous Dr. Hollis was kind, considerate, smart, confident, and informative. When I walked out I knew that she was in the best care possible. I watched my daughter literally come out of surgery with a huge smile --- saying I can see better right now than I ever had. What a beautiful moment for a mother.. Thank you Dr Hollis and wonderful staff.
I had Radial Keratotomy, the precursor to LASIK in 1991, performed by Dr. Stephen Hollis at The Eye Institute in Columbus GA. I was -650 in one eye and -625 in the other. I had been wearing glasses since 1st grade. I started wearing hard contacts when I was 9 years old because my eyes were changing so rapidly. When gas permeable came out, I switched to them. I had lost one of my gas perm lenses but had an eye appt in the next two weeks, so I did not reorder the missing contact. I went and saw my eye doctor and asked if I could wear soft lenses. He agreed and within a year and a half, I had giant holes in my corneas of both eyes because they were not breathing properly. I tried to go back to gas perms, but discovered I could no longer wear any type of contacts. I was stuck in glasses and they were so thick, I would literally run into walls because everything appeared curved and I had no peripheral vision. Dr. Hollis was my last hope. I remember after I had the surgery, I could see better but I had a long way to go. My daddy kept asking if I could read signs and I was like NO!! When I went in for my 2 week checkup, I was 20/20 in both eyes. To actually see the details of leaves on the trees was just amazing. He literally saved my life. I have just now started wearing glasses again in the past two years. I am becoming far-sighted, not due to age, but as a side effect of the RK. But I wouldn't change almost 30 years of perfect vision for anything. Thank you Dr. Hollis! You saved my life! He is the greatest eye surgeon in the Southeast. My brother-in-law had the ladik about 15 years ago and still has 20/20 vision. It is really a shame what Columbus and the feds did to Dt. Hollis. He is a fine man and an exceptional pioneer in the field of corrective eye surgery.
I, too, had both of my eyes done on Friday, May 22. Like the rating before me, I have also been in glasses since a very early age. I am now seeing 20/20 in both eyes. It is amazing. A whole new world. I cannot thank Dr. Hollis enough. He and his staff were very pleasant, comforting, and informative. I went into this with realistic expectations. Knowing that the possibility of walking out with 20/20 vision might not be possible. I am stunned by the results.
I had both of my eyes done on Friday May 22 2015 and the next morning I honestly could see things I had never had before. I have been in glasses since 2nd grade and I'm 46 yrs old now. This was the best decision I have ever made. Dr Hollis explained everything To me and his staff was awesome! I was nervous and they all put me at ease.. I did read all the reviews Dr Hollis had some were not so good and I was mildly concerned but after I observed the staff and Dr Hollis with patients before me I was so ready and confident that I would have positive results. I now have 20/20 which I have never had in my Life all because of this amazing Doctor. Thank you Dr Hollis you changed my life !
