So glad I had my surgery here! I had gone to several other lasik places and came away confused from different opinions and lack of knowledge and abused by the many salespeople. I was pretty amazed after going to Gotham and seeing

This is not a lasik review... just general opthalmology.

About a month ago, I woke up one morning with severe pain in my left eye and I knew right away that it was a scratch. I called Dr. B and he accommodated me right away. Once I got to his office, he took me straight back and whatever he did, immediately eased the pain. He gave me sample drops which saved me money at the pharmacy. He was very thorough in my exam and the 5 or so follow-up exams I had until he released me with healthy eyes!

As my luck would have it, a stye just came out on my eye. I've had them before and after a few days of warm compresses, they heal on their own. But this one was much different and became so bad yesterday that I knew I needed to see a doctor. Again, I called and he took me right away. I got there and he was very busy but when the receptionist saw the severity of my stye, she told him and he dropped everything to see me immediately. He was also surprised at how bad it was but was he was so calm which really made me feel at ease. He examined it and proceeded to drain it. It was already really painful but he was so gentle. It's only been 24 hours since I saw him and it's already much better.

In a nut shell, Dr. Bonanni is professional, brilliant, gentle and down right amazing! I would never go to any other ophthalmologist in NYC!

And even though I can not review Dr. B for Lasik, while I was in the waiting room for my follow-up appointments from my scratch, I spoke with many others in the waiting room who were there for their Lasik follow-ups and they all had nothing but amazing things to say about Dr. B, the procedure and the results!

I can??t speak highly enough of Dr. Bonanni and the staff at Gotham Lasik. My name is Amanda and I own a travel agency that specializes in group tours for senior citizens. I??ve been traveling the world for longer than I would like to admit and this procedure has simplified my day-to-day tasks unbelievably. Traveling with sometimes up to 100 seniors outside of the country is at times too much to handle on its own. Thanks to Dr. Bonanni and Gotham Lasik, I no longer have to worry about my contacts getting lost after flying just a few hours. Being that the airlines no longer allows you to carry on liquids, my eyes would get so dry and it was guaranteed those contacts would get lost. SO ANNOYING! Thanks to them, I no longer have to deal with that anymore!!

You have to love this place. The minute you walk in you realize this is where you have to have your procedure. The staff is friendly, cheerful, and always helpful. (I had some unusual requests and they obliged me with no hesitation.) After going to a bunch of other places that felt like I was in used car dealerships, it was refreshing to find a place that was more concerned with me and my needs than making a quick buck. This is not one of those 'factory' lasik centers.

Knowing something about laser technology and the different laser procedures myself, I found Dr. Bonnani very knowledgeable and informative - and he took as much time as I needed to answer my questions and explain to me about all the different lasers out there and how they differed from each other.

I guess the results speak for themselves. I'm 20/15 with great 'high-def' vision and couldn't be happier. I'm so glad my cousin who is an ophthalmologist in Canada recommended Gotham Lasik. I can't speak more highly about them and the procedure. My suggestion is just go here and get it done. You'll wonder why you didn't do it sooner.

This place is a joke. They have no regard for the patient and are very pushy. They will really push you to sign up for the surgery right away just so they can make a sale. I was very disappointed this is how Dr. Bonnani conducts his business. Definitely go somewhere else--you can find a better doctor who aren't so aggressive to take your money without giving you time to think or consider other options.

I just want to say Wow! The results speak for themselves. I am better than 20/20 (and at every visit, everyone I talked to in the waiting area had great results).

I took a long time in deciding which doctor and lasik center to go to to get my eyes done. In fact, I first visited Gotham Lasik over a month ago and was very impressed. I thought I should do a little more research and go to a few other places, even though I had a few friends who recommended Gotham and Dr. Bonanni. I'm glad I did, it showed me that my experience at Gotham was unusual for this industry. (They even suggested I go to other places to compare if I wasn't 100% sure.)

No other place took as much time explaining the different aspects of laser correction and they showed they really cared about me and my needs like no other - everywhere else it felt like I was just a number, or they just wanted me to book and take my money.

I actually went back for a second appointment before I booked to ask Dr. Bonanni more questions and he was great - very patient and answered all my questions and then some. He is exceedingly knowledgeable about every facet of the field and knows about all the different lasers and the latest technologies and procedures (and even the stuff that hasn't been FDA approved yet). And their diagnostic equipment is better than any of the other places I had been to - no one analyzed my eyes like they did (and I guess its worth it - the results speak for themselves).

Everyone there is so pleasant and nice and seemed to really care about me and how I did - the financial person was great too - helped me apply for financing and didn't pressure me at all. The price was pretty moderate and comparable to the other good quality laser places. I am so glad I did it here - great vision and no more contact lenses!

Today is the afternoon following my Lasik surgery with Dr. Brian Bonanni at Gotham Lasik. I am THRILLED to say the least. My procedure took place around 6:30 p.m. last night, I was home and in bed by 7:30, and any discomfort that I felt (which was completely normal) was gone by the time I woke up this morning. I've just returned from my follow-up visit with Dr. Bonanni, and I already have 20/15 vision. I have no pain or discomfort and I can see more clearly today than I ever have in my life.

From the beginning of the process (my consultation was one week ago today) I felt entirely at ease and safe. Dr. Bonanni is clearly an expert at what he does, and he has the latest technology so I felt 100% safe. Of course, before I even entered his office I had already done a LOT of research. You MUST do your research. If you don't, you won't know what questions to ask and you'll have no idea what he is talking about anyway. My decision was easy, I had no desire to talk to any other surgeons because everything I needed to know was covered both online and in the doctor's office.

I asked Dr. B about that negative review on Yelp regarding the non-refundable deposit. He said that the person responsible for that no longer works there, and he was very upset when it happened. I did not have to put any money down for my procedure at all. The price was fair, and believe me, Dr. Bonanni has gone out of his way to make this as affordable and manageable as possible for me. I could make a list of the accommodations he has made for me, but I won't because I think that he works with patients based on their income level, insurance etc...and not everyone will have the same price in the end.

I wish there were more than five stars to give this doctor, his staff and this whole experience. His technicians are fantastic, sincerely interested in each patient and just make the whole process very enjoyable. Dr. Bonanni is hilarious too; I love his sense of humor (especially when I asked ridiculous questions!). To say that I highly recommend Gotham Lasik is a gross understatement. If you want this procedure done, look no further. You MUST go to Gotham!

Pros: Latest technology, professional atmosphere, customer service

Cons: ZERO

Pricey buts it??s your eyes! Mine was between 4-5K but a worthy investment after not being able to read the D on the eye chart. I wouldn??t go to another place even if it got me to where my eyes are now cuz the post eye care is amazing and worth every penny I spent. The staff and doctor work for that money. No regrets.

Cons: Money in exchange for vision. Priceless.

I stayed around the block on 55th street for the surgery. There is so much to chose from in that area. The location of Gotham makes the procedure very convenient even for out of towners because there's so so much around the area. You won't want to go far after your surgery. You'll be relaxed and ready to zonk out. Between the time that you walk out of the office to when you wake up the next morning you will want to just keep your eyes closed and let the time pass you by because your life will change the moment you wake up. It's truly unreal and life just gets more precise with every additional day. The care I received at Gotham was truly recommendable. Dr. Bonanni was there every step of the way. I will admit unless you are ready do not lay down a deposit because it isn't refundable, however they are very flexible with holding it until your ready. I wouldn't have wanted to change a thing about my experience ... except for maybe taking back the time I put in visiting other doctors. I did go back and forth with a couple different doctors but what won me over was when I waited a couple weeks and realized Dr. Bonanni was who I felt like I knew the most. For some reason he was the only doctor I met with every time I scheduled an appt there. So many offices didn't even bring me to there doctor and wouldn't until the day of surgery. I trusted him. I still do. He changed my life.

I was referred to Gotham by two friends who had been to Dr. Bonanni and had succesful surgeries. I was a little nervous with regards to the procedure but Dr. Bonanni answered all of my questions in a professional and understandable manner. The surgery was quick, painless and the the results were amazing. All follow up appointments have been great. The entire staff is friendly and courteous. I would highly recommend a consultation with Dr. Bonanni before making a final decsion on a particular Dr. or procedure.

I have read lots of reviews of lasik procedures and I feel so lucky in my experience. I had no complications, almost no discomfort and an extremely rapid transition to perfect eyesight. Within the first 24 hours I was seeing 20/20 vision.

I can only praise Dr. Bonanni and GOTHAM LASIK staff- they were the most universally exceptional in their friendliness and knowledge.

What an exciting moment for me to have seen four peoples life change immensely in my immediate family go from having to deal with bad vision to bad vision being a memory they'll never have to go back to. One doctor equals four HAPPY HAPPY faces.

Now that I think of it, its truly an honor having this doctor so close to our home physically. Although, if I can give any advice as a witness, its to make the trip if you have to cus it is so worth it.

The Biggest difference btwn this Dr B and the other doctors was how easily accessible he was to them my fam. I would travel for him miles and miles. He was there for my husband on the weekends for a concern regrading his new sunglasses breaking. Clearly not an emergency situation and yet he still dropped everything, Thank you GOtham

Even if you've been convinced by another doctor or place, at least get a second opinon from Dr Bonanni. Its a shame I didnt' do my research about him at GOTHAM LASIK for m y surgery because I was not even his patient for the procedure and he took care of everything that went wrong with mine I had wafefront guided lasik and suffered fromd relentless eye pain from dry eyes. I thought it to be normal and delt with it for awhile until it never ended and realized my doctor shouldve been Dr Bonanni He did fix my suffering and was very helpful with fixing anyother doctors mistakes and explaining all that the old doctor should've done differently.

It was this time last year when I first met Dr. Bonanni at Gotham Lasik. How we landed in there was as random as my friend and I literally running into someone on Fifth Avenue who handed us a holiday special... as if we were going to break up our sex and the city shopping experience to go see some doctor for a free consultation for a surgery I knew we didn't have money for.

Fast-forward to an hour later, I'm thawing over a complimentary hot latte, browsing their ridiculously chic sunglass collection while overhearing my friend all excited about 0% financing! What cracks me up is how she went from being all stressed out because she went way overboard with her holiday budget to being all hyped up over a surgery I knew couldn't be cheap. It's been almost a year now and I'd be shocked if I could count 10 people within that she hasn't mentioned Dr. Bonanni's name to! At this point, I'm not too sure the procedure wasn't done on me.

Literally her excitement has made me feel like I went from being close to blind to seeing better than 20/20.

It's important to me that everyone knows Dr. Bonanni is an expert at what he does because truly he has changed my friend's life and career ... alongside 30,000 others. Imagine that! I went through the whole experience with her- from her 1st free consult all the way to her last $48 payment.

Everything Dr. Bonanni said was as truthful as it gets. As much as I did not believe him when he said it was painless, he was right. He has to be the most patient person by the way. My friend had so many questions, enough to make me annoyed and she's MY friend. At one point I was like seriously you're really asking him every detail about being a Duke fellowship trained corneal and refractive specialist... and his time at Princeton??

But I'll admit, it was cool to hear all the knowledge he has to share, not to mention how happy he was to share it. You would be shocked if you heard about all the special cases he has performed on people who were told that they weren't a candidate, and then they walk out of his office with better than perfect vision. (I didn't even know that existed!)

What's so great is that everyone my friend talks to about Dr. Bonanni must really think that they were best friends. I can hear her now... "No, I'm serious he's one of the very few surgeons chosen in the whole country to be a trainer for the laser that was used on my eyes!"

I found most of the staff at times a bit pushy. While my eyes were kind of corrected, I found the overall experience to be unpleasant. I did not feel that my concerns were addressed and when I called with questions after my surgery the staff became very short with me. I had very long wait times just about every time I visited his office. I expected a bit more especially considering the price I paid.

The more I read about Lasik on-line, the more concerned I've become about either having the procedure or recommending it to family members. How do I know that Dr Bonanni is any better?

My name is Ahmed and I own produce distribution company out a new jersey. I decided to go with the lasik thing after being convinced by my eldest son and his wife to be. Constantly I was misplacing my cell phone and glasses having to do backtracking to find my stuff. I think they were tired of this. Now though I see the world as it should be without having to deal with optics. This place is top notch. I thought they would be pushy to get me in and out the first time we went because so many other people were there I think they also do face stuff but instead we all got expresso and I felt like the pushy one. If you consider the surgery get it done there. Now if I could only solve the cell phone problem.

Pros: Vision crisp and clear

Cons: Still can't find my cellphone!

I can??t speak highly enough of Dr. Bonanni and the staff at Gotham Lasik. My name is Darlene and I own a travel agency that specializes in group tours for senior citizens. I??ve been traveling the world for longer than I would like to admit and this procedure has simplified my day-to-day tasks unbelievably. Traveling with sometimes up to 100 seniors outside of the country is at times too much to handle on its own. Thanks to Dr. Bonanni and Gotham Lasik, I no longer have to worry about my contacts getting lost after flying just a few hours. Being that the airlines no longer allows you to carry on liquids, my eyes would get so dry and it was guaranteed those contacts would get lost. SO ANNOYING! Thanks to them, I no longer have to deal with that anymore!!

Pros: It was a perfect procedure

My name is Eli and I own a fishing charter business on the Potomic River near the Nations Capitol. Funny enough the last thing I wanted to do was write this review but as the procedure has helped make my day to day tasks easier, I will give thanks where it is due. Wearing glasses for most of my adult life, this is almost a dream come true. Trying to basically run my business and take care of all the patrons, their line, the boat and all other happenings out on the water by myself... it didn't leave much time to mess around with my glasses. Having this surgery makes my boat an all around smoother operating and safer environment. I wish I would've done this earlier, but I was a little scared of having it done. I'll leave by saying that I was thankful for the Gotham Lasik referral... ... tight lines.

For the last 12 years I have successfully worked under the title "Preferred Handyman" throughout Albany's community. The ongoing success of my work is not credited to advertisement, but solely word of mouth. I first visited Park Avenue Laser Vision and Mandel Vision, thinking that they would be less expensive due to their advertisements. Unfortunately, both these places had a very clever way of dismissing the hidden costs of the procedure. It's amazing how once I was introduced to Dr. Bonanni and his entire staff, which gleam perfection as soon as you walk into the door, price was my least concern. Now I can put on the proper eye wear and attack my work withough having my glasses get in the way!

Pros: Greatest Doc. in town

Cons: I give up my title, but its well worth it.

I went to Gotham Lasik last week and had surgery. Im so happy with my results. I now have 20/15!!! I still can't believe I can see. I have been to different centers in the last month trying to make a choice. There were so many to choose from. When I went to Gotham Lasik I knew in the first 20 minutes of being there, I would book. The office was the nicest and cleanest place i have been to. I got to meet Dr. Bonnani the day of my consult. It was very important to me speak to the doctor before I book my surgery. It was nice to be treated like a patient and not a customer. Thanks Doc!

Pros: Great space, very clean, good service

I am a fan of Dr. B. He was so nice and trust worthy. I went to 3 places before I made the decision and I liked his track record and confidence the best. You do not want to feel like just a number, I felt like the people there actually cared how I felt... my nervousness and everything. :) I had my surgery on a Saturday last month and the Dr. called me on the next day. I have NEVER had a Dr. call ME on a Sunday. I was shocked. If you are considering Lasik... consider Gotham Lasik Vision

Went here after going to five other places - I like to take my time in coming to an important decision concerning my vision. By far the most comfortable, informative, and professional place around; from the moment I first entered the place to when I left after my surgery a month ago.
It was the only place where the doctor took the time and answered all my questions (yes, I did have a lot, but the other places wanted to take my money and rush me out). And I didn't have to book surgery or put a deposit down just to see the surgeon like other places.
I did a lot of research on the web and found a lot of it confusing and contradictory, so I was glad Dr. Bonanni went into great detail to everything I asked about. There was no question he didn't answer at length, no matter how stupid it probably was. I finally got an understanding of what the real advances have been in the past few years and what is just marketing hype. He went over the risks and what the best procedure for me was for my particular situation and eye characteristics.
Everyone at Gotham treated me with respect and made me feel at home. And a big plus, there was none of the 'used car' salesman pressure I found at other places. (And the price was very fair.) At times it got busy, but it seems like they allow enough time for each patient so I never had to wait long to be seen.
Anyway, I am so thankful I went here to get my surgery. I am better than 20/20 (actually 20/15!) And everyone in the waiting area when I was there had the same results. We were a happy little family. I can recommend Gotham Lasik with no hesitation and I think Dr. Bonanni is the greatest.

Pros: In every detail a great lasik place

Cons: Can't think of any

.

First impression was positive and informative.
However, I ended up being treated as a stack of cash rather than a patient. It was all about how much money I can give and how quick.

Dr. did not answer some of my questions clearly, such as personal negligent cases or long term side effects his previous patients have experienced, and just moved on to another subject.

I also found them mudslinging their competitors very unprofessional.

Please do yourself a favor and do more research.

I have played baseball for many years and have been told to try out professionally. Every time I would try out for some big team, my eyes would always be the problem. I usually wear contacts when I play, which easily fall out at times, costing me big errors.

Since the league prohibits players from wearing glasses on the field, I have to wear these big nasty goggles, which are very ugly looking and annoying. I finally considered LASIK surgery after one of my teammates just went through with the procedure. He recommended that I try out Gotham Lasik Vision in Midtown, because the yare simply the best there is. After the game I went home and did my research and had to agree with him. I had scheduled a free consultation the next day, which revealed that I am a perfect candidate for the surgery.

I was able to actually have my surgery done in two weeks following the consultation. Now, I am playing better then ever and the ball has been clearer then I have ever seen. My batting average went up .050 in two weeks and I will eventually try out for a big team again come next season. I would have never had this much confidence and accuracy in my game if it wasn??t for Gotham LASIK Vision. I have already recommended them to the rest of the team and my family. Play ball!!

So it got to the point where I was so annoyed with having to bring my glasses every where I went, that I started to consider getting Lasik. My vision isn't horrible but its just bad enough to where it's annoying. I only wear glasses to see far away and having just moved to NYC I found myself bringing a map and of course, my glasses, every where I went. The fact that I would have to bring them whenever I left the house, just so I could see the street signs to save me from walking in the opposite direction , really started to urk me!

So I did some research online, read reviews, and talked to some people who had had the surgery. I heard and read amazing things about Gotham and Dr. Bonanni, but I thought I would check out some other places as well. I mean it is my eyes I'm def. going to have to have a couple of opinions and options.

So, it was time for my appt. at Gotham and when I walked in, the office was awesome and huge! They offered me a latte (which I kindly took of course) and sat down expecting to wait a half hour like other doctor offices. Nope, out came Dr. Bonnani, himself, to greet me and take me back to start some tests. I watched a little video about the procedure, asked 1 million questions (which he answered very patiently and honestly). Thank youuu, finally an honest Doctor who really wants you to understand what will be going on before, during and after your procedure. I then met with the Managing Director who went over pricing and my options. I was all for the financing they told me about, took a lot of anxiety away that I had about paying for the procedure.

The whole time I was at Gotham, I kept thinking to myself wow I am actually getting to meet with Dr. Bonanni! Unlike the other places that I had went to for a consultation, they wanted me to pay $100 or more to even see the Doctor and see if I was a candidate. Um, I thought that was a bit ridiculous. Not at Gotham, a Free consultation really meant Free and meant that I was seeing the Doctor himself. :)

Leaving relaxed, confident, knowledgeable and super excited about my procedure in 2 weeks, it couldn't come quick enough.

I have had my procedure now and my vision was absolutely perfect 20/15 when I left the office. Wahooo!
See ya annoying glasses and hello perfect vision. I can't thank Dr. B enough, he truly is a superb Doctor and I couldn't be happier!

I looked at many different places in my search for Lasik. I found a lot of the places in NYC to be a little pushy & sales-y. The procedure is such an investment I really wanted to feel like I was in a capable Doctor's office, not a used car sales lot. I thought that some of the places had staff that was really doing the "Hard sell" and I even had to pay to get a consultation! That is what lead me to Gotham Lasik Vision. They had a free consultation policy and I felt the staff welcoming and pleasant. I was offered a latte (which was nice... was not offered more than once though) :) Dr. Bonanni was a very knowledgeable and sweet. I felt much better after leaving the office. Better about the procedure that was scheduled for the next week and better about finding a place where I did not feel as if I was being "Sold." Now my vision is rear perfect and my recovery was smooth sailing.

I just got Lasik Surgery on July 24, 2009 & the next day I was perfectly fine and could see 110% clearly. The surgery was painless and quick. Dr. Bonanni is an exceptional doctor who is honest, patient with questions or concerns, and absolutely the best at what he does.

I did lots of research on different doctors in the Manhattan, and he is by far the best. Getting lasik is the best decision that I have ever made personally, and I would recommend Dr. Bonanni of Gotham Lasik to anyone considering the surgery. I have already referred a peer who had the surgery the Monday after me and she is also extremely happy.

The office is very friendly and the staff makes you feel right at home. They did not sell or push Lasik on me. It was my decison, I inquired, and all they did was change my life in such a positive way.

From the minute I walked into the Gotham LASIK office I knew this was not your typical doctors?? office. I could not believe how upscale and gorgeous it was! The pictures do no justice you really need to experience this for yourself. They even offer you a cappuccino while you wait! Am I in heaven?! After my consultation with Dr. Bonanni himself, I decided to book a date to have the surgery done. I love the fact that I had my actual consultation with Dr. Bonanni. I have been to many other LASIK Centers around the tri state area and I was usually thrown to some pushy salesman who just saw me as another potential sale. At Gotham, I felt like I was part of their family, rather then just another patient. There was a great level of comfort through and through.
About the surgery: The surgery was the most quickest and painless surgery I have ever experienced in my life. Dr. Bonanni had gotten rid of any fear I may have had previously by describing what kind of machine they use (Allegretto Wave), how the procedure is TOTALLY BLADELESS, and then spoke to me through every step of the surgery. I am now at 20/15 (better then 20/20) two days later and I am still amazed. Did I mention that you get two years of follow up visits included? That is something I have never heard of! I am so pleased with the results and service that I am recommending everyone I know there!

At first, the whole idea of getting my vision corrected from LASIK surgery was something I have never even considered. I did not believe that a laser would actually make my vision perfect, and the whole idea of a laser in my eye frightened me. Although I was tired of wearing glasses to work and contacts to special events, I still was skeptical about LASIK surgery. I have heard so many stories about how painful, expensive, and unsafe it was. After a referral from a family member, who had a successful experience with it, I decided to redo my research. Sure enough Gotham Lasik Vision came up as one of the top LASIK centers in Manhattan. I even met with Dr. Brian Bonanni, who was extremely knowledgeable and caring. He performed numerous diagnostic tests on me, in order to find out if I was a candidate or not and had answered all of my questions. It turns out I was. When I finally had the surgery done, it was amazing. I was 20/15 the next day and my vision is as clear as ever. It was completely painless and took ten minutes! I want to thank my cousin for literally opening my eyes and recommending Gotham Lasik to me. Their level of professionalism and understanding was a great comfort for me.

I have been wearing glasses for about 20 years and as the years went by, Lasik seemed like my only way out.

I started doing my research and began to make appointments with the Lasik clinics all throughout the city. Every consultation was akward except for my experience with Gotham. Gotham was the only center where I actually met with the Doctor. In some cases, the other centers had me deal only with salespeople. At Gotham, Dr. Bonanni conducted a series of tests to determine my eligibility, and sadly, concluded that my corneas were not thick enough for the procedure.

I walked out of Gotham with a respect for the practice and the honesty of Dr. Bonanni. It seems that the other Lasik clinics treat the procedure as if it were a commodity, and Gotham treated it with the seriousness that it deserved and acted like a medical practice and not a used car lot.

I would recommend anyone who is eligible for the procedure to go to Gotham and not risk their eyes to anyone else. Do your research! Honesty counts!

Pros: The most honest and credible Lasik center out there

.

I was considering laser eye surgery and many reviewers recommended checking out several places before making such a huge decision. Gotham, being highly rated, made my list to have a free consultation. Based on my consultation here, I was convinced that Dr. Bonnani was a fine laser eye surgeon with great bedside manners. I asked him tough questions and he answered them easily and thoroughly. I felt very comfortable with him.

It's unfortunate his staff was inconsistent with the "refundable" deposit policy. At the end of the consultation I was handed over to a salesperson. Perhaps the salesperson was little desperate to secure me as a patient/client because everyone there knew I was looking at other laser eye surgery places. Though price was not an issue (I was prepared to invest) and I was in no hurry (although surgery the next month was nice-sounding), the salesperson offered me a reduced price if I put down a refundable deposit right then and there -- for a surgery date that was right after a consultation with another laser eye surgery place.

At first, I refused. The dates were too close and I think there was a huge cancellation fee from either place. Most importantly, I needed time to compare all the other places I had seen and needed to see. The salesperson said Dr. Bonnani was very busy; securing a date wouldn't hurt. I asked him again if the deposit was refundable. He affirmed. I thought, "I guess... I can always get it back" and paid the deposit with my bank debit card and got a receipt.

Once I left, I felt something was off. Before I saw Dr. Bonanni, the salesperson and receptionist kept asking me if I wanted coffee and a donut from their huge platter of donuts on the front desk. I've never been asked if I wanted a donut so many times within 10 or so minutes in my life. I said "No, thank you" several times and even told them I didn't drink coffee. They left me alone once I got something (tea). At the time, I thought they were being overly hospitable because it wasn't very busy in the waiting area. I should have taken this as a hint -- the salesperson wouldn't let me go unless I did something for their benefit.

A few days later, I decided not to have laser eye surgery at Gotham. When I called to ask for my deposit back, a girl on the phone said my deposit was not refundable because I had signed a paper agreeing to that. I was stunned.

Then I got upset. Why did the salesperson tell me otherwise? Is he allowed to go against their policy in order to secure patients? It took many phone calls and about 3 weeks to set the matter straight and get my deposit back. Dr. Bonanni even personally called me. He said he didn't know I was offered a refund at the consultation and explained the policy was set to help pay for preparation and supplies prior to the surgery. When the salesperson called, he kept mentioning a "business manager" that he had to clear the refund with.

Lessons learned: Read everything you sign carefully, so that you will remember it later on (I read it too fast). Never put down a deposit unless you're absolutely sure. Or use an American Express Card because banks won't take back the money once the process is started (I learned this one after telling many older people about my experience).

While I do recommend people to consider Dr. Bonanni if they want laser eye surgery, the rest of his business is equally important. In my case, the rest-of-the-business part stressed me out so much that I gave up on Dr. Bonanni. I wish I had stuck with my guns and not put down the deposit. Who knows, then maybe I would have had laser eye surgery by Dr. Bonanni months later. I hope my review and critique helps improve Gotham Lasik.

I was considering laser eye surgery and many reviewers recommended checking out several places before making such a huge decision. Gotham, being highly rated, made my list to have a free consultation. Based on my consultation here, I was convinced that Dr. Bonnani was a fine laser eye surgeon with great bedside manners. I asked him tough questions and he answered them easily and thoroughly. I felt very comfortable with him.

It's unfortunate his staff was inconsistent with the "refundable" deposit policy. At the end of the consultation I was handed over to a salesperson. Perhaps the salesperson was little desperate to secure me as a patient/client because everyone there knew I was looking at other laser eye surgery places. Though price was not an issue (I was prepared to invest) and I was in no hurry (although surgery the next month was nice-sounding), the salesperson offered me a reduced price if I put down a refundable deposit right then and there -- for a surgery date that was right after a consultation with another laser eye surgery place.

At first, I refused. The dates were too close and I think there was a huge cancellation fee from either place. Most importantly, I needed time to compare all the other places I had seen and needed to see. The salesperson said Dr. Bonnani was very busy; securing a date wouldn't hurt. I asked him again if the deposit was refundable. He affirmed. I thought, "I guess... I can always get it back" and paid the deposit with my bank debit card and got a receipt.

Pros: nice office

Cons: not honest place.

I had LASIKS eye surgery performed by Dr. B a little over a year ago. The following is a step by step description of my experience, and long term effects (1 year isn't really long but most posts on here are only 2 weeks post-op).
The moment you get in the office you will notice a 20/20 segment playing on the television, featuring DR. B. They then offer you hot chocolate to accompany your eye surgery. They will run a couple tests to make sure you are a candidate. This is when it is important to ask the Dr. exactly how many cases HE had go wrong. Dr. B explained not many, so I was ready to do it. I got my surgery done on the same day I went for my consultation.
SURGERY: Dr. B then asks you to lay down and tapes your eyelids so as they do not interfere. He then puts some drops in your eye. This is were it gets a bit intimidating, but its quick. You will feel a great sucking over the eye...everything goes dark....then you smell the incision, your vision comes back, and they do the next eye. They prop you up, you squeeze the little gell ball, and sit in a room for fifteen minutes making sure not to open your eye. It does sting, and you might have the urge to itch them.
You then will hopefully be taken home by someone, relax, wear your night goggles, and when you wake up you will be able to see 20/20.
Overall I would recommend Gotham. It was pricey but seeing all the pictures of Avril Lavigne and Colin Farrel made me want to pour the free hot chocolate all over my head/eyes.

Pros: Vision "A" OK

Cons: Price

Went around to many of the laser centers and doctors, but no one really could compare with Dr. Bonanni and Gotham Lasik. I did plenty of research and had been hesitant for a long time to have any sort of laser correction. I am so glad I went here. My vision is better than 20/20 and beats any vision I had with glasses. I love Dr. B and the staff. They all treated me so nicely, even when I was a pain with all my questions and fears. There was no 'bait and switch' tactics like so many of the other places advertising $399 and eye. In fact, the price at Gotham was comparable to most other places. And their technology and experience is beyond any other place I visited. I can't recommend them enough. They (and the results) are great!

I was at the lasik office about 2 months ago, and my experience could not be better!
Not only was the doctor great and very patient to my needs, the staff were a pleasure as well. Through my whole visit, from the first consult, everything went great. Dr. Bonanni went over everything about the surgery and after it, so I was completely prepared..
I highly reccomend anyone who wants to get Lasik done, to do it at Gotham!

I finally took the plunge and got my lasik eye surgery done last week! I went from eyeglasses to contacts but I was would have all these weird type of problems with my eyes every once in awhile. My last incident a few weeks I got a bad infection and I finally said enough already. My older sister had her lasik surgery done by Dr. Bonnani at Gotham Lasik last year and loved it. I am like really, really loved it to the point she would start to be annoying talking about it to me over the holidays. "I gotta go to Dr. Bonnai, he's the best!" and I was like yeah, yeah, yeah pass the mash potatoes. But I finally listened to my big sis and all I can say is she was so right! I promised her I would write a review(she wrote one too last year when she had her surgery done). So I did, I love it, the freedom you feel is the best part and you can see great, I now have actually better than 20-20 vision!

Cons: Not cheap-but you get what you pay for like my dad use to say

So I told my favorite eye doctor that if Obama won the election I would finally get the procedure from him that my wife had done three years ago. I had been hesitant to do it even though my wife got great results. I decided that I couldn't miss out on seeing the first black president take the oath of office and wanted to go to Washington without my glasses fogging up in the cold or with all my contact lens solutions. I just want to say I had a really great and professional experience from the start at Gotham. Dr. B and President Obama have something in common - they are both winners in my book.

I was a little hesitant in considering lasek surgery due to the risks and stories of things that may go wrong, but Dr. Bonanni helped me feel right at home, spent a good couple of hours with me during consultation, ran all the tests, and answered all of my questions and concerns. I did not feel pressured at all, and decided to get the surgery shortly after my initial consultation. I am happy to say that my vision is now 20/15 after post operating tests and I could not be happier with the service, the price, and the results. I will definitely be sending more of my friends and colleagues his way. Thanks Dr. Bonanni!!

Dr. Bonnani and Gotham Lasik really are the nicest of any of the 3 places I went to check out. One place advertised cheap prices but wanted me to get their most expensive procedure when I met with them(naturally big shock). The other place had the normal lasik pricing like Gotham Lasik but the recovery sounded weird like sit in the dark for 4 days or something bizarre like that so I was like yeah right I don't think so! It's a little to close to Halloween for that and it just sounds creepy like somebody could break into my apartment and rob me or worse and I wouldn't be able to see anything for 4 days? I really liked and felt comfortable with Dr. Bonnani from the moment I met him and his super nice staff(hi Cali!) they couldn't do enough for me the whole time I was there and in my follow up visit too. But the best part is I can see better than 20-20! Dr. Bonnani told me what # it was like 20-something but I don't remember I know its lower than 20 though. I am not great with remembering little details and stuff like that. Sorry don't be mad at me Dr. Bonnani!!! If your gonna get lasik and you should because you'll see like amazing go to Dr. Bonnani and Gotham Lasik!(hi Cali-thanks again for being so nice and everything)

I use to dance professionally for a living a couple of years ago and gave it up because I was getting older and needed more money. Now I am married but still dance to keep in shape and I literally sweat to the point that my eyes sting and burn from it. My contacts would bother me and I would have to take them out but then I couldn't see anything but I just always resigned myself to not being able to see when I was dancing. My girlfriend went to Dr. Bonnani at Gotham Lasik before she got married over the summer because she didn't want to wear her glasses on her wedding day. I was in her bridal party(she was a gorgeous bride and it was a beautiful day too) and she told me about the whole lasik procedure at Gotham Lasik and I should definitely get it done too. I told her she should have gotten it done a long time ago because she looks even prettier without her glasses(she can't wear contacts for some reason). When she showed me her wedding album last month she mentioned again to me I should go in to see Dr. Bonnani and I told her I would go in for the free consultation. So I finally went in 2 weeks ago an loved Dr. Bonnani and his staff and had my lasik surgery done last week. I went back for my follow up visit yesterday and now have 20/15 vision with absolutely no complications what so ever! Dr. Bonnani(who is one of the nicest people I have ever met) asked if I would write a review here because some competitors made up false ones about him(reminds of the presidential attack ads I see everyday on TV which is pretty sad). So I am writing to tell everybody to go to Dr. Bonnani at Gotham Lasik! You will love the freedom of no more glasses or contacts!

My daughter got her lasik surgery done by Dr. Bonnani sometime in the spring for her wedding this past June. My wife(her mom) passed away 5 yrs ago so it was bittersweet day for all of us. I gave her away but we all thought of her mom not being there which was tough on everybody. But we knew she was looking down and smiling at our beautiful little girl tying the knot on her big day. We only just got the video from the wedding recently and when we were all looking at the wedding album shots and then the video my daughter says Dad you should get this lasik too like I did you got really nice blue eyes that no one can see behind your glasses. I tell her I am not looking to date anybody so what does it matter to me if anybody can see my eyes or not. But the truth is I guess it stayed in the back of my mind ever since my little girl said it to me. So she brings it up a few more times and I says I would go see her guy and check it out for myself and then decide. I live in Brooklyn so its not a bad ride and when I went into Gotham Lasik for my free consultation this guy(Dr. Bonnani) spends a whole lotta time with me and answers all my questions I got. Which was a lot. Then they had my eyes checked out to see if I could get the lasik which I could. Then we did a little negotiating and they made a better deal them my daughter got(which I didn't tell her and I figure its cause of the economy being worse now then when she got hers done). Anyway everything went lickity split with my surgery and I could see perfect 20-20. I was like woa this is amazing! I went back a week later the doc tells me everything looks great and asked if I would mind writing a review here for their Gotham Lasik because there's been some negative made up reviews about him. I tell him thats screwed up and no problem you did right by me you got it. So this is my review. It's gonna cost you some bucks but if you want it done right you go to Gotham Lasik and Dr. Bonnani who will fix you up. Thanks again doc.

Pros: Nicest guy who really knows his stuff

Cons: I wish it was a cheap surgery but it ain't

I am one happy lady thanks to Dr. Bonnani and the nice people at Gotham Lasik. No more designer glasses for me( I wore the Sarah Palin style that is all the rage right now) that I was forever losing or breaking. I still reach for them on my night table every morning when I wake up out of habit over the last 30 yrs. I love anything that has to do with water be it swimming or just being caught in the rain or even taking a shower and I can see everything perfectly for the first time! I had my laser eye surgery done at Gotham Lasik 2 weeks ago. Dr. Bonnani asked me yesterday if I would mind writing a review because he had some competitors were making up false, negative reviews and posting them. I told him I would be very happy to write a review about my experience. I got him to laugh when I said maybe his competitors are getting too caught with up with all the mudslinging/negative campaigning in the presidential race and think now it is acceptable to try and do the same thing to their peers in the medical community like they watch happening in the news on TV. Speaking only for my own experience at Gotham Lasik I was very impressed from my initial consultation. I came in and was the only patient waiting to meet with Dr. Bonnani so I was actually able to meet with him at my scheduled time and not 30 or 60 minutes later like every other doctors office I go to seems to make me wait. The first thing he did was have me take a eye exam to see if I was a good candidate for lasik and I was told that I was a very good candidate. Then I met with Dr. Bonnani(who is a real sweetheart of a guy) and he took all the time I needed to make me feel comfortable about everything and answered my barrage of questions about what is the difference between all the different options that are available for laser eye surgery today and what would be the best one for me. Everything including the prices was gone over by his staff and I set up my date and my only regret at all was not doing it sooner!

Pros: Changes your outlook on life-literally!

Cons: None at all besides the cost

After doing some research on the internet, i decided to go to Dr. Bonanni for a consultation. Upon entering his waiting room - I realized i was the only patient there. They took a few tests on my eyes and i met Dr. Bonanni -he checked my eyes and told me I was a "great candidate". A few weeks prior to my consultation I went to my regular eye doctor and he told me I was NOT a good candidate for lasix surgery because I had an eye disease. So the fact that Dr. Bonanni told me that I was a good candidate raised a red flag. I then met with someone who told me a price of $4500. I could not beleive how expensive Dr. Bonanni charges for lasix! He then told me i had to leave a deposit in order to keep this price and when I told him it was too expensive he became very annoyed and very pushy. He then started barganing with me and I told him I wanted another opinion before i decided. I was in the office for about 45 minutes and when I finally left I realized that I was still the ony patient. Pleas be careful and don't trust your eyes to this doctor and his office.

Dr. Bonnani did my lasik surgery about a month ago and a few weeks ago I went on a scuba diving trip in Bermuda. I was a contacts wearer and let me tell ya it was a whole new world being able to see under water perfectly for the first time in my life! I know people who use special prescription diving masks(forget the pre-ground dive masks they sell in stores are ground down and are dangerously thin and scratch very easily) which cost several hundred dollars which is of course cheaper than several thousand dollars for lasik eye surgery. But I also play in a local basketball league & softball league and I need special prescription glassed for that too so there's another couple hundred dollars. And all of these things can break and eventually will need replacing in the future. So I finally talked myself into going for it and ponied up the dough for the surgery. I admit I was still questioning myself if I should spend the money or not right up to the day of the surgery. But I took the plunge and now I tell everybody I know that they should too. Not a day goes by that I don't say to myself how did I manage all these years to just keep wearing those pain in the a** contacts! I guess I'm a very active type of guy and because of that I appreciate the results more than the average guy might. I don't know. I just know it was the best thing I did. As far as Dr. Bonnani and the staff at Gotham Lasik their top notch super nice people. They treat you right and Dr. Bonnani takes as much time as you need answering any questions you have. I was not rushed in and out of the office and it was nice that when they scheduled me I didn't have to wait forever to see the doctor. Most doctor offices I have been to always seem to schedule 10 people all at the same time my appointment is for and then we are all just suppose to sit there with a big smile on our faces and wait around forever. I basically hate waiting for anything to be honest. Bottomline its all good at Gotham Lasik. Go for it!

Dr. Bonnani did my lasik surgery about a month ago and a few weeks ago I went on a scuba diving trip in Bermuda. I was a contacts wearer and let me tell ya it was a whole new world being able to see under water perfectly for the first time in my life! I know people who use special prescription diving masks(forget the pre-ground dive masks they sell in stores are ground down and are dangerously thin and scratch very easily) which cost several hundred dollars which is of course cheaper than several thousand dollars for lasik eye surgery. But I also play in a local basketball league & softball league and I need special prescription glassed for that too so there's another couple hundred dollars.

I went to Dr. Bonnani last week because my sister-in-law went to him last year and has been telling my whole family ever since how amazing it is to have perfect vision and not have to wear contacts anymore. I have been tuning her out until this summer when I started dating a guy(I am recently divorced) who owns a small sailboat and loves to sail here in Long Island. The wind on the water was doing a real number on my contacts and I was getting real frustrated over it. So I finally broke down and asked her for Dr. Bonnani's number and called Gotham Lasik and went in for a consultation back in July. Everything went great and I loved him & his staff & his office but I just didn't want to spend the money so I told him I would be in touch. Well, after another month of sailing I was ready because I wanted our sailing trips to be romantic and a chance for us to bond and I would have to take my contacts out and couldn't see anything! Ugh! I went out this past weekend for the first time since my surgery and it was fantastic! No more eyes tearing up from my contacts and I could see him and the beautiful water perfectly. It was quite romantic some wine & cheese ... Thank you Dr. Bonnani you are the best!
