THANK YOU FOR TRUSTING ME WITH YOUR VISION HEALTH
Thank you to the patients that have entrusted me with their eye health and vision. My job is not just surgery, it is to work with each patient to improve your quality of vision and life. Here are some of the things patients have to say:
"'A great decision which I highly recommend!' Those are the exact words I use to describe my feelings to friends and family, not only toward my vision quality after PRK (no contacts or glasses, so awesome!) but also the experience I had with Dr. Gustave before, during, and after the surgery. Dr. Gustave is great at explaining the procedure and answering any questions in a way that helps you understand the entire process, making you feel comfortable and confident. Choosing someone to operate on your eyes is a very big deal, and I couldn't have been happier with the outcome.
Thanks, Dr. Gustave!"
"I recently had LASIK with Dr. Gustave. I am incredibly happy about the entire experience. I highly recommend Dr. Gustave for many reasons. Working with Dr. Gustave was wonderful.
"My eyes have troubled me for years, and the entire experience was easy and painless. I experienced no discomfort, and I was able to see perfectly by the following day. Dr. Gustave contacted me personally to follow up and see how I was doing. He was awesome! I feel the procedure was highly worth the money, and have no qualms whatsoever about the experience.
I recommend Dr. Gustave highly!"
"Deciding to undergo corrective eye surgery is one of those life-defining moments for people, and I’m certainly no exception. With "better-than-normal" vision today, I wake up each morning thrilled with my decision and have nothing but the highest praise for Dr. Gustave and his staff!"

It’s been nearly one year since my PRK surgery. I, like many others, am beyond pleased with the results. I was nearsighted and wore glasses for most of my 30-year life. I tried wearing contacts, but found the combination of contacts and arid Colorado climate too irritating for my eyes. This made my construction profession difficult because I needed to wear protective lenses; I either sacrificed my vision clarity, or replaced my scratched or broken glasses annually.
When I decided to pursue an eye surgeon, I avoided the ubiquitously advertised firms because I wanted to feel like a person, rather than a client. The recommendations and opinions of my friends and colleagues led me to Dr. Gustave.
Dr. Gustave was refreshingly honest and transparent during the consultation. As he guided me through the most elaborate of exams, he described and interpreted results with remarkable clarity and understanding. Ultimately as a candidate, we reviewed the risks and benefits of alternative procedures. He was relatable as a former patient himself- even providing his personal number to call with any questions.
Obviously, I decided to follow through with the surgery. Dr. Gustave was clear with his approach and methodology. He verified his previous evaluation and provided descriptive guides and calendars depicting my responsibilities during the healing process. Looking back at the surgery, I was certainly more anxious going in than anticipated. Conversing with a composed and calm Dr. Gustave, and some relaxation meds, certainly helped. The most agonizing part of the surgery, in my opinion, was the post operation eye flush with water- freezing.
Because Dr. Gustave and I decided PRK surgery was right for me, I went through three days of mild burning and itching discomfort after the surgery. This was common for PRK patients, and I was well prepared for it. A Thursday surgery allowed me to use the weekend to recover. And I was provided prescriptions for pain medication and a copious supply of various eye drops as well. Although my vision was clear and noticeably improved immediately after surgery, it took 6 months for my eyes to stabilize and reach their pinnacle sharpness. My post-surgery progress was closely monitored during routine follow-up appointments with Dr. Gustave.
Deciding to undergo corrective eye surgery is one of those life-defining moments for people, and I’m certainly no exception. With "better-than-normal" vision today, I wake up each morning thrilled with my decision and have nothing but the highest praise for Dr. Gustave and his staff!
