Patient Testimonials - Southwest Eyecare
Occupation: Business Owner
I am a business owner, mother, wife, and athlete. When I decided to have LASIK, I took the time to make sure I was going to a doctor that had the experience and professionalism to make my decision the right one.
Dr. Teahan was there every step of the way. I am thrilled that I can be even more active than ever without glasses or contacts.
Occupation: Otolaryngologist, Facial Plastic Surgeon
As a surgeon, my vision is the most critical sense that I use in the operating room. In many cases one millimeter will make a difference in a patient’s outcome. Dr. Teahan’s exceptional skill, attention to detail and caring, knowledgeable staff were paramount in my decision to have LASIK. With any procedure, I would expect a patient to choose a surgeon with proficiency, experience, and of utmost importance, the capability to correct a complication, should it occur.
Dr. Teahan exemplifies all of these characteristics and I recommend him as the LASIK surgeon of choice in New Mexico.
Occupation: Business Owner, Hunting Guide
As a hunter and a professional guide for over 30 years, my vision is extremely important to me. Dr. Teahan took a great deal of time to listen to my concerns and make me comfortable throughout the evaluation and surgical process.
His friendly and courteous staff were a joy to work with. I am thankful everyday for my 20/15 vision and freedom from glasses. It was the best investment I ever made.
Occupation: Metropolitan Court Judge
Before having LASIK surgery, my wife and I researched different surgeons in the area. We were extremely impressed with Dr. Teahan’s experience and qualifications. The deciding factor was that Dr. Teahan met directly with us and spent an extended amount of time answering all of our questions. Since our surgeries, my wife and I have recommended Dr. Teahan to numerous family members, friends, and colleagues.
In following up with these referrals, I have discovered that my experience with Dr. Teahan was not unique, but that everyone was extraordinarily impressed with him. If you are interested in a “hands on” surgeon and truly professional care, then I would strongly recommend Dr. Teahan.

Dear Dr. Teahan:
Vision is never something you should take for granted, and as physicians, we are well aware of the significance of considering surgical correction of our vision with LASIK.
It was extremely important to us to know our LASIK surgeon prior to the actual date of the procedure. Dr. Teahan personally performed our initial consultation exams as well as all of our post-op exams. This kind of continuity of care from your LASIK surgeon should not be compromised! When you consider surgically correcting your vision your most important decision is the surgeon you choose
Occupation: Outdoor Enthusiast
I live life to its fullest with many outdoor hobbies like scuba diving, snowboarding, rafting, hiking and tennis to name a few. I was always having the hassle of dryness from contact lenses, or rubbing sweat from my eyes and losing or tearing a lens. Dr. Teahan changed all of this for me with the LASIK procedure. My eyes are so important to me, and I would not trust them to just anyone.
My decision to have the LASIK procedure done by Dr. Teahan was the best decision I could have made. I now enjoy all of my activities with a new
freedom and outlook.
Occupation: Professional Artist, Professional Rodeo Clown
I have been a professional artist and rodeo clown for 25 years. I recently decided to have the LASIK procedure performed on my eyes. I can now see things for a landscape painting that I could never see before with my glasses. As a rodeo clown, there is always the risk of glasses getting knocked off or crushed. Now the bull coming at me isn’t blurry. My favorite thing is that I can now see the faces of laughter in the crowd during my routine.
I am very thankful to Dr. Teahan and his staff for this gift they have given to me. The entire experience has been wonderful and I look forward to each appointment.
There are also several things that were first’s in my life: seeing the alarm clock, being able to see the soap in the shower, telling the difference between a cow and a bush half a mile away.
Occupation: UNM Student
Throughout the entire process of my LASIK surgery, Dr. Teahan and his staff have been warm, supportive, and caring, beginning with the consultation throughout the brief surgery, and then the follow-up visits. I felt confident and secure under his care and now I am enjoying 20/20 vision. I couldn’t have been more lucky!
