“I just want to say Thank You to Dr. Koch for the painless and perfect lasik eye surgery! I now have 20/20 vision from a -8.5 eyeglasses prescription. Thank You to Rita Uriati for making this procedure so easy. Only good things to say about the entire Koch Eye staff. Thank You!”


“I just want to thank EVERYONE who works at Koch Eye Associates for making my Lasik experience the best that it could be! My first thank you is to Rita Uriati who took the time out of her day to make my dream of being able to see clearly true! This experience exceeded my expectations and Dr. Pham is such a wonderful addition to your team! I never thought I would be able to wake up and see my clock in the morning but thanks to Dr. Pham, my vision is even better than it was when I was wearing contacts or glasses! I'm beyond ecstatic and 1 million thank yous could never be enough!”


“I can't thank Dr. Sayegh enough for making my Lasik experience truly the best..I had my procedure done on 2/1/13 and I see 20/20!!! I could never imagine seeing this clearly without my contacts or glasses and now I can... it was the best thing I have ever done for myself as well as the best money spent! Dr. Sayegh is an excellent surgeon and you couldn't ask for a better personality!! I would also like to thank the friendly staff especially Rita and ophthalmic tech Shannon. Again, a huge THANK YOU Dr. Sayegh you really are the best!!!!! I will see you again in May!”

“A HUGE thank you to Dr. Pham for a wonderful LASIK experience and for changing my life! Just had it done yesterday and already have 20/20 vision!!! Dr. Pham, Rita (lasik coordinator) and Nicole and Donna at the surgical center are all amazing and me the experience so comfortable.

“Thank you Dr Koch, for giving this legally blind girl the gift of perfect sight again with no corrective lenses - Lasik procedure on 1-3-13 was awesome!”

"I just got back from my 3 month follow up visit at Koch Eye and I'm happy to report that my vision is now 20/15 (which is amazing!!) I never thought in a million years I would ever be able to go without my glasses/contacts. I no longer have to worry about taking my contacts out every night nor do I have to worry about having that extra pair of glasses hanging around as a 'just in case,' and now I can even go under the water in the pool and open my eyes like I did when I was a child! Thank you so much Koch Eye for changing my life! Rita Uriati, I can't thank you enough for answering all of my crazy questions and for being more than patient with me. Dr. Koch/Dr. Sayegh & Associates you have truly changed my life, and I thank you so much for that! If anyone out there is considering having Lasik done... DO IT without hesitation, it is AMAZING and the procedure is seriously over in minutes! Again, THANK YOU!"

"After twenty years of lost and broken glasses, contacts that dried my eyes out and Rec Specs that fogged up on the athletic field, I finally went to see Paul Koch. It is one of the best decisions I have ever made. I now see better than 20/20! The Koch's are quality people, they care about you and they care about your health.... so what are you waiting for?”

Stephen Laffey, Former Mayor, Cranston, RI

Having Lasik surgery done at Koch Eye Associates is one of the best things I have ever done for myself. I decided to have the procedure done by the best in the business, Dr. Paul Koch. Everything went exactly as they told me it would. I am still amazed at how fast and easy it was. Everyone at Koch was very professional, and I send family and friends each week."

John DePetro, AM Radio Talk Show Host

"Being an avid sailor, the best investment I have ever made was my Lasik eye surgery. In less than ten minutes, my life changed. My sailing was taken to a new level because my depth perception improved. No more reflections from unwanted glare, no more constant cleaning of my glasses on my T-shirt. All in all, I am forever grateful to Dr. Koch for helping me see the world more clearly!"

Mary Marshall

"After approximately 5,632 days of wearing contacts and the laborious maintenance tasks that go along with them... I am free, free at last!"


"I thought I'd have to wait to get to Heaven to have 20/20 vision again!"

Dr. Mark Nowel, O.P., Ph.D., Dean of Undergraduate Studies, Providence College

"After Lasik, I am able to function free of glasses or contacts. I am able to look at people face-to-face, and I feel more confident. No matter how tired I am, my eyesight is not hindered by dry contact lenses."

A. K., - Emergency Room Nurse

"After wearing contact lenses for 20 years, I was amazed by the clarity of my vision and the ease of the surgery. Koch Eye has always been such a great health care institution in this community and I am thrilled to have undergone the Lasik surgery."

Mayor Scott Avedisian, Mayor, City of Warwick, RI

The Greater New Bedford Surgical and Laser Center

The Greater New Bedford Surgical and Laser Center was opened in 1986 with the express purpose of rendering high quality, state of the art eye surgery to patients of all ages, especially those with cataracts, glaucoma, or cornea disease. The Center is designed specifically with the needs of the patient in mind. The entire process from initial examination to final outcome is conducted in a pleasant comfortable environment.

After a patient decides to have surgery, he or she is assigned his or her own Surgical Counselor who is available to answer questions and provide assistance. These individuals are specially trained to assist the patient throughout the entire surgical experience, including follow up care for as long as necessary. Patients are encouraged to contact their counselor for any questions, no matter how simple or complex.
