Patient Reviews

Absolutely wonderful experience! Dr. Hura did my EVO ICL procedure, and now I see better than 20/20! 😁 I came in with -5.5 diopters of astigmatism, and my eyes were smaller than most surgeons would be comfortable operating on. Dr. Hura's extensive knowledge and experience with the EVO ICL made my procedure possible, and I'm forever grateful to him for the lifetime of crystal-clear vision that I have to look forward to. 😎


My initial appointment was very thorough, professional, and supportive. Post surgery follow up was amazing. Dr. Hura personally contacted me to see how I was doing. None of my other doctors are this available. Very impressive and appreciated. I highly recommend this group for cataract surgery.


Wonderful institution, would highly recommend going here if you're interested in getting vision correction surgery. The entire staff was incredibly welcoming, it felt like they had already known me for years. Felt completely safe in Dr. Hura's hands. The procedure itself was painless and smooth and the follow-up was attentive. Extremely satisfied with my results. Only regret is not doing it sooner.


My optometrist referred me to the Maloney-Shamie Vision Institute for Cataract surgery. The entire process from my first consultation appointment to the actual surgeries was flawless. The staff in the office provided all the necessary information in preparation for the surgeries. Dr. Hura was so friendly and knowledgeable. After each eye surgery he personally called me the next day. I now have perfect vision! I highly recommend Dr. Hura and the Maloney -Shamie Vision Institute.


The absolute best investment I’ve ever made in my life, everyone at the Maloney Vision Institute was welcoming and explained the process thoroughly to me before and after the procedure. It’s been 2 months and there’s no issues, the healing was very fast and painless all throughout. Very, very happy with my results. Thank you so much Dr. Hura and the team.


Dr. Hura performed my LASIK surgery and made me feel really comfortable during the entire procedure. He has had LASIK himself so he understands what it feels like to be the patient. So that gave me a lot of comfort as well. During the procedure he communicates constantly with his assistants so that you can hear as well. He made sure to answer any questions I had and also continued to touch base with me that evening to make sure I was doing okay. Dr. Hura and his staff really make an effort to make sure their patients are well taken care of. Thank you to Dr. Hura and his team, my vision has never been this clear!


I was anxious and apprehensive when I met with Dr. Hura. At age 76 , I could no longer deny the severity of the cataract I had. After testing, I learned my other eye also had a cataract. Dr. Hura thoroughly explained the laser cataract surgery, as well as my options. He explained the entire procedure to me, and I was comfortable with all aspects of the surgery. I had my first surgery the following Friday. I arrived and the surgery took place. I felt no pain and left with great vision. I completed the second surgery the following Friday. I was not nervous or tense, my previous surgery experience was so positive. My eyesight is great! I am able to see far, close and in-between! There was never any negative aspect to my surgeries. I find it a testament to Dr. Hura's great experience and skill. The surgeries changed my lifestyle. I am extremely grateful to Dr. Hura for my vision. I often encourage others who have cataracts not to wait to get the surgery done. Thank you Dr. Hura I am forever grateful.


I just had a wonderful evening playing tennis with my brother. I hadn't played tennis in a while, partly because seeing the ball had become increasingly difficult, which made it more frustrating than fun. Today I had a lot of fun. Dr. Hura corrected my vision, enabling me to experience life fully again. As someone who contemplated getting LASIK for a few years, I can say this: You don't know what you're missing out on because you cannot see it. Dr. Hura's bedside manner was exceptional. As a medical school graduate, I was probably overly curious, but Dr. Hura's explanations and reassurance left me feeling fully at ease. The surgery itself was astonishingly quick. It is magical. All I can say is: Thank you!


Recently had LASIK by Dr. Hura and could not be more stoked that I did! I went to 3 different places for consultations and Dr. Hura was the only one who suggested I wear my glasses for longer (after showing me why I may not be eligible on my first visit) and then explained his reasoning. He seemed optimistic but cautious, and after 6 more weeks in glasses, showed me what had changed and let me know he was comfortable moving forward with the procedure. No other place gave me that same level of specificity. The procedure itself was quick, painless and one week later, I have 20/20 and feel great! Highly recommend this team and Dr. Hura for LASIK. Thank you all!!


I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Dr. Hura did an amazing job. It was absolutely painless and I never expected such a dramatic change in my vision. Even my eye doctor commented on what an exceptional job he and his exceptional staff did. I'm very grateful and I'd recommend this procedure with this doctor to anyone who needs cataract surgery.
