Absolutely phenomenal staff and team of doctors; I highly recommend Dr. Kim as she is incredibly kind, caring, professional, and well educated. A month ago I thought I would never be a candidate for corrective eye surgery to improve my vision. I was informed about the ICL procedure which is ideal for patients who aren’t good candidates for LASIK or PRK. I am beyond pleased with the outcome of my surgery and I’m waiting for it to sink in that I can see clearly without contacts or glasses for the first time in almost 20 years.

I recently had ICL corrective surgery at ICON. Dr. Eva Kim and Greg Files made this an exceptional experience for me. I had been wearing glasses and contacts for over 30 years, and now that’s behind me. I now have very crisp 20/20 vision, and could not be happier with the results. Thanks to the fact that ICON has some very specialized equipment to measure the structure of my eyes that most other providers do not have, they could confirm I was a candidate. Dr. Kim is highly skilled and also a very pleasant person; she talked me through each step and made it very clear what I could expect to put me at ease with the process.

I’m absolutely happy that I have chosen ICON Eyecare for my vision correction surgery. The staff is very polite, helpful and friendly. Dr.Kim is a brilliant ophthalmologist and a wonderful person. After a thorough exam, she recommended a Visian ICL surgery because it turned out that I’m not a good candidate for LASIK. She took time to explain the difference between those two procedures and explained every step of my treatment and what to expect after the surgery.  I would highly recommend ICON Eyecare and Dr. Kim to everyone!!

ICON Eyecare is the place to go for all things ICL. Dr. Kovar and her team are the experts, and they are extremely helpful if you have a question or concern. I am an actor who needs to change my eye color for different roles. Dr. Pallagi and Enrique took great care of me for my eye exam and contact lens fitting. Look no further for your eyecare, no pun intended.

Dr. Kim did my LASIK with ICON Eyecare in December of 2020 and WOW was I impressed with her! She was very calming throughout the entire procedure and talked me through every second of what was happening. I will be recommending her going forward.
