Dr. Assil is my hero! He saved me after complications from a Lasik procedure in which one of my eyes developed "epithelial ingrowth", meaning sudden cell growth started to block my vision, which my original eye surgeon informed me might lead to needing a corneal transplant. Scary stuff. A friend, another eye surgeon (at Kaiser), recommended that I immediately seek out a second opinion from Dr. Assil. As soon as I walked into his office, I knew I was in good hands. Dr. Assil has a bevy of staff, all super efficient and knowledgeable. They have a checks and balance system so that nothing slips through the cracks. Under the care of Dr. Assil and his staff, who performed an "epithelial sweep", I now have perfect vision. I am forever grateful to Assil Eye Institute and recommend any and all to go to him as the first opinion!
