"EXCELLENT experience! i was referred to Dr. Montoya from a Family Member. I scheduled a free consultation appt to meet with the Dr. in person to discuss Lasik options. He was very thorough about the entire process, explained it clearly and never pressured me. I decided to do my Lasik surgery after waiting years to do it.. wearing glasses, having a stigmatism in one of the eyes. It was a quick, easy, procedure that takes place in the Surgery Center in DTLA. Very well organized, i was well taken care of, everything was explained to me. I felt comfortable and confident the entire time. I highly recommend Dr. Montoya for any of your eye surgery eyes or if you need an Ophthalmologist. The Lasik Procedure here is unlike other places where you dont get a chance to meet the Dr. for appts or questions. Here you get face to face, one on one attention with no hassle! thank you Dr. Montoya you changed my life and I can see PERFECT.. I am forever grateful!"

"After wearing glasses, and contacts lences for about 21 years. I decided to get my vision corrected. The staff was extremely friendly, Jessica Gutierrez the surgical coordinator explained the process, and the types of surgery options and the procedures. She was even kind enough to help me with finding the most affordable medications after surgery. Dr. Montoya and his team, made me feel like family, they were extremely kind, and helpful. During my eye surgery, Dr. Montoya, even played music by my favorite band, so I could feel more relaxed. Every time I return for a follow up, I always get the best experience I've ever had at any eye center. Thank you, Dr. Montoya and your team. Getting my sight back after 21 years of contacts and glasses. I finally know what it's like to wake up every morning with sight when I open my eyes.

"I have been coming to St. Lucia Eye Center ever since I was a young child. Dr. Carlos Montoya Sr. was my doctor until he retired and then his son Dr Carlos Montoya Jr. took over my care. They really do care about their patients at St. Lucia Eye Center, I have been a patient for about 20 years now and the level of great patient care has not changed. They will take the time to answer your questions and actually listen to your concerns rather than rush out the door. This past December I finally got LASIK surgery and my experience could not have been better. I had a small time frame to get the surgery done because of my medical school schedule and the staff and Dr Montoya were great at making it happen so I would not have to wait another year to have this surgery performed. Pre and post surgery Dr. Montoya prepared me very well for the procedure by taking the time to explain the procedure itself and how I would feel afterwards. He emphasized the importance of nutrition for a rapid healing process which I did have. The staff that coordinated my surgery was also wonderful and very willing to answer all my questions. I would definitely recommend anyone who is a candidate for LASIK to come to St Lucia Eye Center."
