My training experience with Dr. Terry and Dr. Straiko has been absolutely tremendous. I chose to pursue my cornea fellowship with them because of their national reputation as excellent surgeons and leaders in the field of cornea transplantation. I have been here nearly a year now, and my experience has exceeded my expectations. The surgical volume is high and the instruction I’ve received has been outstanding. What has stood out to me most, however, is the kind way they treat their patients, and then patience they have had with me as I’ve progressed throughout fellowship. I couldn’t have asked for better mentors.
Dear Dr. Straiko,
I feel I must thank you for my recent eye surgery o Feb 23, 2017. Everything is healing quite well and I can see so much better now. You have been so kind and respectable with my dry eye problems. You described my condition so that I could understand. You have made me feel safe in your judgement and care for my eye treatment. Another eye medical clinic did not treat me well and had extra treatment done that was not needed. You were referred to me by Good Sam Hosp. nurses that I know. I will certainly tell my friends and others about your professionalism and kindness.

I had my PRK procedure done over two years ago. The surgery changed my life. Prior to having surgery on my eyes both my personal and work life was greatly impacted due to my poor vision. In day to day living I required strong corrective lenses to be able to see such simple things such as reading a book or tying my shoes. It meant the first thing I did when I woke was to check where my glasses were and instantly put them on. As a person who enjoys camping backpacking and the outdoors I was constantly checking to make sure that my glasses were never lost or crushed. This all changed with PRK. In addition, the surgery also had a profound impact on my work life. I am a Physician Assistant and work in vascular surgery. This requires a tremendous amount of concentration and control. Prior to having my eyes corrected I required heavy corrective lenses to be able to fully function in the operating room. Now I operate without any prescription and have complete clarity in the surgical field. I would say that overall my quality of life has improved immensely as I no longer feel held back by my vision. I have 20/20 vision and have never looked back.Judah
A very good overall experience and the results of the surgery very satisfying.Jimmi
Getting eye surgery with Dr. Straiko was the best decision of 2016! It was unbelievable what a difference it was to be able to open my eyes and see everything so clearly. If there was one thing I could change, it would be to get it done earlier. Can’t say enough good things about the man.Lance
Dr. Terry’s skill has given me a more productive life of good sight. So thankful that he was my surgeon. May God bless him and his family.Homer
