I had played around with the idea of getting Lasik for years before I finally decided to go through with it. Before I came to see Dr. King and his staff, the best I could do on the vision chart without the aid of glasses was the big "E"... and it wasn't because I could see it lol, only because I already knew. I am now free of glasses and contacts, and it is nothing short of miraculous. Dr. King's staff were caring, and comforting, and incredibly informative. Their facility is comfortable and clean, and you feel very welcome the second you walk in. They go over all your options with you, and make sure that you understand exactly how everything will go. By the time it was time for my procedure, I felt I had full knowledge of what I was getting into. Their expertise put at ease any nervousness I may had had about the procedure. I would recommend their facility to anyone. They are truly amazing, and it is a truly amazing experience to walk into a room near blind, and come out 5 minutes later being able to see. I still trip on the fact that I can read my shampoo bottle in the shower.

I had my eye surgery at the end of March at the Renton location. All of the staff members were very friendly and answered all of my question, leaving me with no doubts that I wanted to go through with the surgery. They were able to work with me and got me in for surgery before a vacation that i had planned which was very helpful as I just extended my vacation a day for the surgery.
was really worried that it would hurt (because i am a big baby) but i was pleasantly surprised , the only thing i felt during the surgery was a little pressure just as they said i would.
The surgery itself only took 5 minuets and I was even able to see right away after but everything was a bit hazy. The next day at my follow up appointment I had 20/20 vision.
I highly recommend Clearly Lasik all of the staff members i came in contact with were very professional and courteous and Dr. as well. They are also very affordable compared to other places i looked and financing was easy.
I am an employee of Clearly Lasik in Kenewick. I have experienced the patient as they walk in the door, go threw the exam and finally the surgery. I have seen many times how excited they are and how much they have put there trust in Dr. King and the staff. After being a part of many of the surgeries I decided to have it myself. I have been very happy with the whole experience, and although I need readers, it is wonderful not to wear glasses all the time. My husband, Daughter-inlaw and her Dad all had the surgery as well, and all of them are so happy with the results. So we are just a few of the many who had a great experience at Clearly Lasik, and the job experience is great as well.
Dr. King is very gracious and patient with all the patients that choose to have surgery with him, and as a staff member he is very appriciated by all in our office.
I highly recommend Dr. King at Clearly Lasik in Renton. I heard about the clinic on the radio and went in the next week for a free consult. All the office staff were very friendly and helpful. I found out that I was a good candidate and scheduled my surgery right away. Two weeks later I went in. After waiting a short time, I met with Dr. King who answered any questions I had. I then waited in a nice room with a big screen TV, massage chairs and snacks. When it was my turn I was in and out the surgery room within 10 minutes. As soon as it was over, I could see well enough to walk--and read signs that before without corrected lenses didn't even know existed. My vision was worse that 20/400 before and now I can see 20/15. It's been almost 4 weeks and I'm so happy to see better than perfect with out needing to feel around for my glasses or spend time and money on contact lenses. :) Can't wait to go camping, lens/hassle free.
While everything about Clearly Lasik and my experience there was very professional, and even with extensive information about the potential results and problems both read and explained by an assistant, one thing was NOT explained: I am 54 years old, nearsighted my entire life, and really wanted to have clear peripheral vision. It was explained that I would still have to wear reading glasses after the procedure...that is fine; it was NOT explained to me that I would lose the very close excellent vision I had without my glasses. Previous to the surgery, if I took off my glasses I could thread a needle, remove a sliver, or read very fine print, etc. After the surgery I see at a distance fine, can read etc. with reading glasses, but can see nothing clearly when I try to see up close without the glasses. This loss of very close vision was NOT explained prior to the procedure.
Please go over this result very carefully when considering a corrective lasik procedure.
I have wanted Lasik for years and my wife made me promise to get the surgery done this year. I think she was tired of looking for my glasses and looking at smudged lenses from our 2 year old twins.
I remembered my boss getting Lasik earlier in the year and heard him talking about Clearly Lasik. I asked him about it and he said that his wife and 2 other friends had it done by them too. He said that "Dr. King is the creme de la creme of Lasik surgeons in the Pacific Northwest" and that he has done more surgeries than most surgeons combined. That had me calling them for a consultation.
I drove in and met the team at CL and also met Dr. King. The office was fancy and the people there were happy and professional. I liked that Dr. King was relaxed and seemed pretty easygoing.
So a few weeks later I had my wife take me to Clearly Lasik and while we were in the waiting room our to twin boys played in a children's area and watched a movie so that was nice for my wife to relax.
I went back for surgery and it was pretty quick only a few minutes and when I walked out of the clinic I couldn't see too well.
This was about 9 am. By the afternoon I could see pretty much perfectly! I was stoked! The next day Dr. King said that I had 20/20 when I dropped in for my follow up. I was able to work and drive the next day with no problem.
Life is good and Lasik makes it better.
To this day I am still happy as a clam. I recommend Dr. King to my friends and family. I had 2 of my co-workers go to him and they are looking forward to another season of the Seahawks this year without glasses or contacts too!!
He is a pretty cool guy and a great Dr. I teased him that he was King of Lasik and he laughed and was pretty cool guy. Read his website and reviews to see how many surgeries he has done and when you meet him at his office he is even more impressive. I tell my buddies that Dr. King is even a Hawks fan but I think they care mostly that he is the Best in the Northwest.

I might sound like a very picky person after reading this but you have to be with your eyes. I am very selective and found out that through my meeting of various Lasik surgery centers in the area that there is a upper level of QUALITY that I encourage all of you to experience. Go to Clearly Lasik first and guaranteed you will leave as content, satisfied and excited as I.
After nearly 4 years of being unhappy with either the staff performing the preoperative consultations or not feeling comfortable with the surgeons from the other lasik centers.. I finally had a friend refer me to Clearly Lasik..and after 4 years of meeting various lasik surgeons and their office staff I finally felt comfortable with a surgeon, Dr. JOSEPH KING and his staff at Clearly Lasik.
The story goes like this... My Husband and I walked into Clearly Lasik located in Renton, Wa for my first consultation. Upon entering the office we were greeted by a friendly receptionist and were offered cappuccinos! In the waiting room we sat next to a very happy couple who had both had lasik the previous Thursday and said it was the best decision that they had ever made.. to get lasik and to come to Clearly Lasik with Dr. Joseph King. I asked the couple how they decide to choose the specific office and they said that they were referred by several friends and family who also had successful lasik procedures with Clearly Lasik.
I was eager to meet more of the Clearly lasik staff and especially Dr. King I looked around the waiting room and saw a picture of Dr.King and his family and read through a "comments" book. The book had page upon page of patient testimonials and thanks to the Dr.'s and office staff for the excellent care and outcomes. I have to admit that the smiley faces and thankful, excited messages really made me feel relaxed.
I was called back for my consultation by an incredibly kind and happy gal named Brenda? who was very compassionate and ran me through the consultation, taking every opportunity to make sure that my husband Lee and I were comfortable or had any questions. I liked her style and so did Lee.
After scheduling my surgery we met Dr. Joseph King! He was very calm, personable and very polite. Brenda introduced us and let him know that we were coming back for Lasik in 3 weeks and would see him again.
My surgery day I was nervous, Lee drove me to the Clearly Lasik office and we were greeted by our first names and immediately Brenda popped out to say Hello with a large smile. She informed us that Dr. King was preparing for us. When I was brought back for my Lasik surgery, Dr. King was very professional and caring. I felt more comfortable in his presence. My surgery was fast, precise and Dr. King and his operating room technicians talked me through step-by-step so that I knew what they were doing. I was done in 10 minutes. Lee was able to watch me through a large window. I even held a stuffed animal that made me feel silly but helped me relax even more.
The entire staff at CLEARLY LASIK, especially Dr. Joseph King made me and my 20/20 vision the happiest of patients! THANK YOU CLEARLY LASIK and THANK YOU DR. KING!

I am so happy with my vision after my laser vision correction at Clearly Lasik. I visited several other centers in the Seattle area and decided to go with the group of Lasik surgeons at Clearly Lasik, based on their years of experience, and the state of the art technology. The staff are outstanding-- they really made me feel comfortable and relaxed.
When I first arrived, I was so impressed with the comfortable and beautiful office, the caring staff and doctors, and the thorough attention to detail.
My friends and family followed me to Clearly Lasik and now they are seeing great too! Super experience. Highly recommended.
