Beverly Byrne
Laser Director
“For many people laser vision correction is only a dream, something they have been waiting for all of their lives. Well, the wait is over. Every day these procedures help thousands of people become less dependent on contact lenses and glasses. It is truly a miracle of modern science and technology. We, the staff of Bense Vision, would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation of your time and the privilege of serving you. We know that you have a choice and that there are other many LASIK companies out there. We know that your time is valuable and that you are likely seeking good information about the safety and true costs of laser surgery, surgical results of the surgeon himself as opposed to those results from a ‘company’, results generated by a hundred different surgeons and not your surgeon himself.”
Sharon Bense
Co-Founder, CEO Bense Vision
“It’s no secret that laser vision correction is growing in availability and popularity. But when it comes to your eyesight, like anything else that’s really important in life, great care should be taken to scrutinize your options before you make a selection. After all, you are making a choice that will result in trusting your vision correction to a specific surgeon. In areas of medical care, particularly the delicate and advanced procedure used in laser surgery, there should be no room for compromise. Thousands of people from all over the world seeking laser vision correction have trusted Dr. Mike Bense to provide the best possible visual result with the safest and most effective technology available. It is truly an awesome responsibility and, I can assure you, one that every member of our clinical and administrative staff takes seriously. At Bense Vision, we value your trust and make every effort to ensure that the highest standards of service and comfort are upheld. Thank you in advance for giving us the opportunity to meet and exceed your expectations. Best regards, Sharon Bense Co-Founder, CEO Bense Vision.”
