See for yourself why patients love Claris Eye Care & Surgery

Dr. Carlson and his team made me feel more than comfortable every minute I was in their hands. I was extremely nervous about the actual surgery, but the team did a wonderful job creating a peaceful and safe atmosphere. Before I knew it the shockingly quick and painless surgery was over. This is by far the greatest investment to better myself I could have ever made.

Eye surgery of any kind can be scary, but from the first consultation to the one month post check with 20/20 vision, Claris is the best! Each person in the office was a delight to talk to and encouraging. I recommend Dr. Carlson! Highly!

This past visit was my first, and I was amazed at how thorough the staff and Dr. Carlson was! I had my consultation for LASIK/LASEK and they really took their time to discuss the procedures and which one would be best for me. I'm very excited to schedule my procedure once I move to MN!

I decided to choose Claris for my cataract surgery treatment following recommendations of a family member who had a very satisfying and happy experience with the multifocal lens options with the cataract surgery. I wanted to share my cool and smooth experience with Claris. Dr Keith Carlson being expert in the field has been a source of encouragement and confidence. He explained everything before, during and after the surgery making the whole procedure look so comfortable. The staff has been extremely kind and were helpful in every step right from appointments to set up payment plan to make the whole experience great. I would highly recommend Claris/Dr Keith Carlson to my family and friends.
