King LASIK Vancouver was named the city’s best Laser Eye Surgery center by the 18th Annual Georgia Straight “Best of Vancouver” awards. Along with two other centers, honored with second and third place by voters, King LASIK was singled out by voters who read the free, weekly news and entertainment newspaper based out of Vancouver. King LASIK has been providing LASIK surgery to the Vancouver area, and to patients across the northwest via our other offices, for years. Dr. King, our primary surgeon, has helped correct more than 85,000 patients’ vision. We are honored and excited to have been chosen by Vancouver readers, and take this as a sign that we are moving in the right direction as far as exceeding our patients’ needs and expectations.
Every year, Georgia Straight conducts a “Best of Vancouver” contest that includes readers’ votes on hundreds of categories, from specific types of restaurants to city life to personal sales to medical providers to various types of musical acts. With winners selected from all over Lower Mainland, the Best of Vancouver offers a broad selection of businesses that have impressed readers, and the competition for every category is steep. We aren’t too shy to admit that with the number of laser eye centers in the area, our ascension to the number-one spot this year, displacing last year’s top and second-place centers is a source of pride.
BoV award winners were honored during the official announcement at CBC Plaza. All 262 readers’ choice winner met for the breakfast ceremony and celebration of Vancouver and everything the city has to offer. If you look closely at the photo you can see one of the King’s representing King LASIK at the ceremony. We were happy to participate in the gathering and take advantage of the great marketing and networking opportunities, and to get our name out so other potential patients can learn about our services and take advantage of the opportunity to improve their vision with virtually no pain and minimal recovery time.
Despite our excitement, this award just serves as another incentive to work even harder to meet our own goals of providing patients with the best possible laser eye surgery experience. From our up-to-date and informative blog – which you should browse if you have questions about LASIK or any other aspects of laser eye surgery – to our free consultations that help patients determine if they are good candidates for LASIK vision correction, to the atmosphere at our center, we are working to improve our center and what we can do for patients and potential patients in a number of ways.
We are also constantly investing in the newest laser eye surgery technologies so that we can provide patients with the most effective, convenient vision correction possible. In the end, this Georgia Straight award is all about the patients and the people, and that’s why we will continue working to improve our services and ensure that every patient has an enjoyable experience while receiving correcting laser eye surgery.
