I had a horrible experience there. Not about the doc or the surgery. They were great.

I was fooled by the sales guy, Thai, over and over again. He got me in to do the surgery at $3200, but when I paid, he asked for $4000! His excuse? The LASIK place I found which he said he would match the price for $3200, he said it's not the same technology. Why didn't he confirm that before asking me to schedule for the surgery? Worse yet, after he spoke with his manager (who knows if it was true), he said that his cost to do my LASIK is $3400! So, how could he have agreed to do the surgery at $3200, when it cost him $3400? He thought I was retarded?

Furthermore, someone else wrote a review on y.e.l.p., and he literally accused me of writing the review, and then tried to buy off my supposed review. When I told him it wasn't him or my family that wrote it, and when he is finally convinced I was speaking the truth, he just said bye. During this conversation, I specifically told him I was not happy with the experience b/c I feel like this was bait and switch. Just b/c I didn't write a review, he didn't want to do anything to make my experience better.

Well, now here is my review. I don't expect I will get my money back. But at least the general public knows, and will make a wise decision.

The docs and staff were excellent during my consultation and getting me ready for the surgery.

HOWEVER, I am disgusted by the sales guy Thai Dinh. He quoted me a price that is below his cost (according to him) and backed out that price 5 minutes before my surgery... leaving me to pay the full price at the end. I just left the office, cancelling my surgery. I feel bad for the doc and other staffs because they were so nice to me and spent so much time on me. But I cannot agree to do a surgery when the sales guy did a bait and switch on me.

Also, Manhattan Lasik Center supposedly have a special for $1795 for both eyes. This is completely fake. They do have the $1795 LASIK. But, you basically need to have a very low eye prescription (which why would you even think of having LASIK?) and according to Thai, this is an outdated technology that they do not perform. So, you need to pay for the $4000+ for the latest technology.

BEWARE of Thai! He will use the bait & switch on you. Lure you in at a low price (he lured me at below his cost for the surgery) and jack up the price right before you do the surgery

The doctors and staff at Manhattan Lasik Center were extremely professional and reassuring. I had a very quick and painless experience and felt comfortable the whole time. While the procedure itself was a little scary, the results were amazing. After only a few hourd of mild discomfort my eyes felt fine and the next morning I could see almost perfectly. Thanks Manhattan Lasik.

My morning routine will never be the same. It is remarkable, exciting and joyous to be able to see. Honestly it's difficult to articulate how wonderful it feels, but once you've had Lasik you will understand what i mean.\nOverall my experience with Manhattan Lasik Center was phenomenal. The staff was friendly, hospitable and professional. They assisted me every step of the way from my initial consultation, to insurance questions and all the way through and after the procedure. I have friends that are on the fence about Lasik, but i can honestly say that if your doctor says you are a candidate for Lasik jump on the diagnosis and have it done. It is an eye opening experience and it's the best feeling!\nThank you Manhattan Lasik. I am so thankful and happy.

A few days ago, I came in for a free consultation to see if iwas candidate for LASIK. The staff on hand was amazing. They were very professional in area of measuring procedure. On the day of the procedure, they gave me a few consent form to fill out. The remeasured my eyes that moring, and I escorted into the room. I can't remember her name, but she was very nice. Her and I started to speak about comics and games while waiting for the surgeon. During the surgery, I felt a little pressure on my eye that only lasted about 10-15 seconds on each eye. As the doctor was going through the procedure, he was telling me what my eyes was going to experience. His assistant and him kept telling me I was doing fine and/or great. I feel that that kind of bedside manner is important, especially if a patient is awake during the process. I thank the entire staff for this wonderful experience.

Manhattan Lasik Center did a great job on fixing my vision for good once and for all. My entire experience was great, easy and painfree. I did feel a silly discomfort after surgery, ( c'mon it is a surgery ) but it does get better and don't feel any discomfort at all by next morning after I woke up . Thanks to the entire friendly staff and doctors to changing my life.

I just had my surgery here. The staff has been super nice and helpful. The experience of getting the pracedure done was painless and the docto was super gentle. His bedside manner was every comforting. I would have liked to meet my doctor prior to the procedure to ease my last nerves and concerns, but I was definitely fine as I was having procedure done. Right now I have had no pain, And my verison is nice and clear.

At the ripe age of 26, I have worn glasses for about 15 years. While I love the look of my glasses, I was upset with how I felt my life was limited with them. I used a groupon and wound up spend ing about 3k for the interlase surgery. Best 3k of my life so far. It has almost been a week since the surgery and my vision is beyond anything i thought imaginable. I will give another update once I hit the month mark but as it stands now this is the best decision of my life

It started with a colleague's referral and it was turned out to be a wonderful, positive, eye opening experience. Dr. Niksarli's saff at Manhattan Lasik Center went above and beyond to make me feel extremely comfortable and to restore my trouble sight. The operation runs as smoothly as expected from a five star hotel; You've treated like a guest and not a patient. The staff, through a series of tests using high techology instruments. Through this experinece a determination is made us to wether or not you're a proper candidate for the surgery.\r\nThai, of the finance office, takes care of all the administrative work, and he ensures a safe ride home. He is a great ambassader for Manhattan Lasik.\r\nLastly, Dr. Niksarli works his magic. The doctor, who is highly respected in his field, treats you like you are the only patient he is attending to. That respect, and comfort allows you to relax and to let Dr. Niksarli do his work. Today, day two, I feel great; I experienced comfort and no pain. No more tired eyes. I feel confident in repeating the cycle and referring a colleague or family to Manhattan Lasik Center.

I had my Lasik approx 8 years ago with Dr. Niksarli and had a great experience. The next day I could see 100%. About 1 year later, I had cut my eye with a leaf (not Dr. Niksarli's fault) and I went to Dr Niksarli not knowing who else to go to- and he fixed it with no charge! .\n\n I have refered 4 people since then and all have had amazing results. My mom was not allowed to have the procedure according to Dr. Niksarli due to her eye itself but hopes to get re-evaluated soon. My dad will have his consultation next week. I hope they treat him well. \n\nThe only issues I have are with pricing- every one is given a complete different price and some seem to get much more of a discount. I hope my dad gets the best price available next week.

From start to finish, I felt I was in good hands. I've been wearing glasses since I was 3 years old, and don't know any other way of life besides that, as a result I was very nervous coming in to the procedure. The technician I was paired with immediately made me feel comfortable. She was extremely knowledgeable in all questions with a smile. The procedure was very interesting, lots going on, but you can't feel anything. 10 minutes later, I was finished. I went home woke up the next day and was able to see perfectly, to go from waking up every day for 27 years with vision as blurry as it comes,to waking up seeing clearer than when I wore my glasses, it truly was a life altering experience. I couldn't be happier with my experience and will recommend it to everyone who has impaired vision.

The following is my experience having Bladeless, Intralase Lasik at Manhattan Lasik.\n\nI have been wanting Lasik for years, but never had the guts to start the process! When a groupon came along that I couldn't resist, I started the process with Manhattan Lasik.\n\nI had my surgery yesterday and today during my follow up, I could see 20/20. It's not perfect yet (still some blurriness due to eye edema, which is normal after surgery) but I can see 20/20 for the first time in 20 years without glasses and contacts!\n\nI'll start with the only negative part of my experience, which has NOTHING to do with the outcome of surgery, doctors or nurses. You first meet w/ a financing person to finalize payments. While I was meeting with the finance person, he received a phone call. He took the call while waiting with me and was on the phone for about 5 minutes. I thought this was kind of rude (he could have walked out of the room to take the call). He did apologize for taking the call, but it probably could have been handled with a little more tact. After that, one of the people working up front handed me a cup of water and a valium, but didn't explain what it was. So, that could have been a little better too.\n\nBut, once I got started with the pre-surgery measurements, everyone was excellent. They were very calm and knowledgeable. They asked me multiple times if I had questions and they went over instructions with me before and after surgery. \n\nThe doctor who performed my surgery was Dr. Buchsbaum. He was excellent. He took the same measurements of my eyes multiple times to insure it was accurate, which I greatly appreciated because THESE ARE MY EYES! I told him my nervousness with the surgery and he was very calm and assured me I wouldn't be sitting in that chair if I weren't a good candidate. Once it was time for surgery, the nurse offered me another valium, which I took because I was very nervous. I wish I had gotten her name, so I could compliment her. She was an asian nurse (which I know makes me sound racist, but that's all I have to identify her!). She was very claim and very reassuring. She gave me ""Damien"" the teddy bear to hold on to. (Sidenote: If Damien were real, I would have broken his wrist from squeezing so hard during surgery!)\n\nThe actual surgery was mostly painless. First they put antibiotic drops in your eyes and then numbing drops. The only part that ""hurt"" was the first part when they created the flap and put the pressure ring on your eye. It's uncomfortable, but only lasted about 20-30 seconds per eye. After this part, you are put under the laser machine and you look at a red and green light. You hear some noises and smell some smells (the doctor said it was gasses from the machines) and then you're done. The actual procedure took less than 10 minutes total. It was amazing. \n\nDr. Buchsbaum talked me through the whole surgery: what he would be doing, what I would be seeing and hearing. The nurse rubbed my shoulder to clam me the whole time. Afterward, I was given my little kit, sat in recovery and my husband took me home. They also tell you what to expect to feel like after the surgery and they were very accurate. They make sure there are no surprises! \n\nMy husband wants to get lasik and I don't want to take him anywhere but Manhattan Lasik. They understand these are your eyes and give you the best care. If you do get your surgery here, expect to be here a few hours. It's a long wait, but they take their time to make sure everyone gets individual, proper care. \n\nUPDATED:\n\nManhattan Lasik truly does care about their patients. And they actually read these reviews!! I received a phone call yesterday from the finance person apologizing for taking the phone call while meeting with me. I really appreciated that. It just shows how dedicated they are to their patients and maintaining their image. :)

The following is my experience having Bladeless, Intralase Lasik at Manhattan Lasik.\n\nI have been wanting Lasik for years, but never had the guts to start the process! When a groupon came along that I couldn't resist, I started the process with Manhattan Lasik.\n\nI had my surgery yesterday and today during my follow up, I could see 20/20. It's not perfect yet (still some blurriness due to eye edema, which is normal after surgery) but I can see 20/20 for the first time in 20 years without glasses and contacts!\n\nI'll start with the only negative part of my experience, which has NOTHING to do with the outcome of surgery, doctors or nurses. You first meet w/ a financing person to finalize payments. While I was meeting with the finance person, he received a phone call. He took the call while waiting with me and was on the phone for about 5 minutes. I thought this was kind of rude (he could have walked out of the room to take the call). He did apologize for taking the call, but it probably could have been handled with a little more tact. After that, one of the people working up front handed me a cup of water and a valium, but didn't explain what it was. So, that could have been a little better too.\n\nBut, once I got started with the pre-surgery measurements, everyone was excellent. They were very calm and knowledgeable. They asked me multiple times if I had questions and they went over instructions with me before and after surgery. \n\nThe doctor who performed my surgery was Dr. Buchsbaum. He was excellent. He took the same measurements of my eyes multiple times to insure it was accurate, which I greatly appreciated because THESE ARE MY EYES! I told him my nervousness with the surgery and he was very calm and assured me I wouldn't be sitting in that chair if I weren't a good candidate. Once it was time for surgery, the nurse offered me another valium, which I took because I was very nervous. I wish I had gotten her name, so I could compliment her. She was an asian nurse (which I know makes me sound racist, but that's all I have to identify her!). She was very claim and very reassuring. She gave me ""Damien"" the teddy bear to hold on to. (Sidenote: If Damien were real, I would have broken his wrist from squeezing so hard during surgery!)\n\nThe actual surgery was mostly painless. First they put antibiotic drops in your eyes and then numbing drops. The only part that ""hurt"" was the first part when they created the flap and put the pressure ring on your eye. It's uncomfortable, but only lasted about 20-30 seconds per eye. After this part, you are put under the laser machine and you look at a red and green light. You hear some noises and smell some smells (the doctor said it was gasses from the machines) and then you're done. The actual procedure took less than 10 minutes total. It was amazing. \n\nDr. Buchsbaum talked me through the whole surgery: what he would be doing, what I would be seeing and hearing. The nurse rubbed my shoulder to clam me the whole time. Afterward, I was given my little kit, sat in recovery and my husband took me home. They also tell you what to expect to feel like after the surgery and they were very accurate. They make sure there are no surprises! \n\nMy husband wants to get lasik and I don't want to take him anywhere but Manhattan Lasik. They understand these are your eyes and give you the best care. If you do get your surgery here, expect to be here a few hours. It's a long wait, but they take their time to make sure everyone gets individual, proper care. \n\nUPDATED:\n\nManhattan Lasik truly does care about their patients. And they actually read these reviews!! I received a phone call yesterday from the finance person apologizing for taking the phone call while meeting with me. I really appreciated that. It just shows how dedicated they are to their patients and maintaining their image. :)

Went in for a consultation on Sept 01, 2011 and scheduled for my surgery on Sept 08, 2011. The staff were very nice and helpful with my questions. They were very professional and I was confident with them taking measurements of my eye with their high-tech optical machines. On the day of the surgery I was told to come in at 2:30 for a 3:30 surgery but I didn't do my surgery until 5:00 but that's okay cause that means they are being more careful and prepared, so I don't mind waiting as long as they get things done perfectly. Then I went into the surgery room and they gave me a teddy bear to hold on to which was pretty thoughtful of them. The surgery lasted like 1 minute per eye but no pain and was done very quickly and skillfully by Dr. Niksarli. So far so good my eyes can finally see.

I had my Lasik surgery done last week and I felt very well informed and comfortable with going forward with the procedure. The staff was great and well verse on the procedure and reassued me on going forward with the procedure.\r\n\r\nThe procedure itself was very quick , no more than 15 minutes and before you even realize it, the procedure was done. Perhas the most differcult. Also being an adult and fearless it was kinda of funny and comforting when the nurse/ doctor gave me a staff animal to hold, in which I did. \r\n\r\nThe best part of the process was waking up in the morning able to see everything for the first time with fresh eyes and no contacts/glasses. A day without glasses or contacts ever again.

Experience was great. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. I felt very comfortable from consultation through recovery. The Doctor walked me through what to expect before, during and after the procedure. I would highly recommend anyonw who is considering lasik to come here for a consultation, and if they are candidate, to come to Manhattan Lasik Center for a great experience. By the way, I can't believe this is 24 hrs after surgery and i wrote this without glasses!

I feel great. A world without glasses and contacts is a clear and colorful and bright world. I've been wearing glasses for over 20 years and I actually couldn't imagine not wearing them. But I don't wear them now. The staff was very professional and caring. Staff is friendly and welcoming. The doctor is wonderful and professional. I am so grad I had this procedure and definitely plan on recommending others in the future.

I can't express how amazing it is to wake up and have perfect vision without glasses or contacts. I used to walk around the house without glasses just because I found them annoying and would rather just deal with the blurriness. Now, I see perfectly after surgery.\r\nFrom start to finish all staff has been friendly and compassionate and helpful. They were more than willing to answer all questions and concerns even repeatedly. Dr. Niksarli was also very approachable and friendly. Throughout the surgery he put my mind to ease by explaining each step of the process he went along. I being able to speak withactual patients in the office about their procedure and out comes. All had the same response: It is amazing!

My operation was done yesterday. The experience with the staff at Manhattan Lasik Center was great. The operation itself was very quick, possibly 15 minutes or less and did not hurt at all. Only after procedure was done that I felt a little discomfort but about five to six hours later I was able to open my eyes and see everything clearly.\r\nI find the staff at Manhattan Lasik Center very professional and very curtious. They explained everything about the procedure step by step, what I was going to feel, what was going to happen during the operation and what I was going to feel after the operation.\r\nThanks to the opeartion staff and the doctor who performed the procedure, I cam actually see without glasses for the first time in 12 years.\r\n

My sister recently had her vision corrected at Manhattan Lasik Center and had been encorage me to do the same thing for my vision.\r\n\r\nInitially, I was hesitant about Lasik. I had been living with glasses and contacts for over 15 years, but after my consultation with Dr. Niksarli, all if my questions had been answered and concerns was alleviated.\r\n\r\nThe staff, from my first greeting through follow-up were friendly and comforting. They were very helpful throughout the entire process.\r\n\r\nLastly, when it comes to health I never like to be concerned about expense but financing was quick, easy and very affordable.

My experience with Manhattan Lasik Center was wonderful. Everyone I met was so great with answering all my questions, comforting me when I was nervous ( which any uneasyness was totally unnecessary! ) The Scheduling availability was also amazing - It seemed that they always had appointments that fit my schedule, Unlike most doctor. I interacted with many of the staff and I don't know how one office was able to staff itself with so many amazing people. The procedure itself was quick and easy and I felt no pain! That night after the procedure there was a mild irritation ( the sort that makes you want to rub your eye - But no pain what so ever ) Then like a miracle I woke up the next morning and could see 100% clearly. I've had glasses since I was in 4th grade - so there's no way to explain how miracuious seeing without glasses or contacts felt. There is notthing I could complain about and I was always hyper-critical. I am certaintly going to recommend Manhattan Lasik Center to all of my friends and anyone I meet!
