Pre-surgery, Doc and staff kept me calm and relaxed. Surgery was about 15 minutes from entering to exiting the room. 10 minutes in the chair. Once the anesthetic eye drops wore off (about 20-30 minutes post-op), I started feeling moderate burning and itching. One hour later, it merely felt like I had dry contacts in. ONE HOUR!!! THATS IT!! Now, it is the next morning, and I am better than 20/20 according to Doc. The "halo" effect is minimal, and I am ready for work,

Thanks Doc!!!

After 50 years of near-sightedness and astigmitism, wearing glasses all of my life, I decided to give Dr. Mandel a try. I had Lasik procedure done in May of 1999 and, 11 years later, still have perfect vision, including nighttime vision, driving without glasses etc. The best money I ever spent. I have referred three friends to Dr. Mandel and all have had wonderful experiences as well.

Anyone considering having Lasik should go to the best in New York, Dr. Eric R. Mandel. Truly skilled and easy to talk with, he has made a big difference in my life and my vision. I highly recommend him.

Also, everyone associated with him are very professional and make you feel at ease.

For a while i been noticing that my vision kept getting worse, i wasn't able to see far away object, even the pictures on TV were very blurry. A little reminder from father time I guess.
I came across Dr Mandel on the internet, read his profile on the website, and decided to make and appointment.
The office staff was friendly and welcoming. Dr Mandel explained thoroughly the procedure of the surgery, so i would make me feel comfortable. The procedure went great, and my vision is perfect right now!

The time finally came when I was totally fed up with wearing glasses! But there are so many LASIK surgeons out there to choose from. Dr. Mandel came highly recommended to me and never have I been so pleased from the initial evaluation to the final result of perfect vision. The staff at Mandel Vision are so friendly and everything is explained in great detail. Never did I feel uncomfortable and Dr. Mandel put me totally at ease. He genuinely cares for his patients and will go the extra mile to make sure their concerns are addressed. Not only is he a marvelous surgeon but during the procedure he kept me at ease. I refer all my friends to him when they are looking to do LASIK. Marvelous experience!

Be afraid, be very afraid. Dr. Mandel is an excellent surgeon, but he is more businessman than doctor. Dr. Mandel blatantly misrepresented the outcome of my surgery to sell his services. After a very disappointing outcome from my surgery, I went to see a different doctor and was told that I was not the "perfect candidate" Dr. Mandel claimed I was.

The office is very nice, including the massage chairs, but it's all part of the sales pitch. The office is a factory -- don't expect Dr. Mandel to spend much time really getting to know your individual situation. Do yourself a favor and find a doctor that's focused on providing quality care and not a doctor that's focused on building a marketing machine to make as much money as possible off anyone he can.

I cannot recommend Dr. Mandel and his staff highly enough. Their high level of professionalism, expertise, and experience are obvious and make the entire experience very comfortable and stress free. After a very thorough evaluation process, Dr. Mandel explained in very clear detail what my options were, his recommendations, and all the pros and cons. I decided to have the PRK procedure and Dr. Mandel walked me through it every step of the way (which was much quicker than you would expect). He was spot on with detailing how my healing process would proceed and everything went according to plan. I could not be happier with the results. In fact, my wife decided to have Dr. Mandel correct her vision after seeing my results!

Thank you for giving me and my wife perfect eyesight.

I would strongly recommend Dr. Mandel to anyone considering laser surgery.

Mandel and his staff from the very start were friendly and professional. I did not feel like it was an Lasik factory. Mandel carefully evaluated me to make sure I was a good candidate for surgery. During surgery, I was informed of every step he was about to do so that I would be at ease. Within minutes, the surgery was completed. It was miraculous that I was able to look out the window and see everything clearly! Great doctor, highly recommended.

Had Lasik about a month ago here. Mandel and staff were all very professional. Didn't feel the "sales pitch". Was made aware of all the benefits and possible complications. The most thorough pre-exam I have ever gotten for anything. Post-op has been great as well. Results exceeded my expectations! Top notch doctor. Highly recommend.

I just had the LASIK procedure done 2 days ago by Dr. Mandel and am thrilled to report that I now have 20/20 vision and zero discomfort in my eyes. WOW! After 20 years of wearing contacts and glasses I have perfect vision again and it feels wonderful. I've been thinking about doing LASIK for years and right now my only regret is not doing this sooner.

Dr. Mandel is the consummate professional while also being very patient and gentle throughout the process. His staff of technicians and assistants are also outstanding; everyone I interacted with was both professional and kind.

From the initial consultation (very thorough!), to the actual procedure, to the post-op exam, I always felt like I was in great hands. And clearly I was because the results speak for themselves.

I have already recommended Dr. Mandel to certain close friends and coworkers who have been following my progress and considering this for themselves. As I have told each of them, I cannot imagine that there is a better option out there for this procedure.

I was nervous about undergoing a LASIK procedure, but Dr. Mandel was terrific about explaining the process and alleviating my concerns. He and his staff are absolutely top-notch and deserve all the high praise given to them. I would enthusiastically recommend Mandelvision to anyone contemplating LASIK surgery.

Having LASIK done was one of my biggest decisions of my life. Having bad vision for 15 years and wearing contacts for 10, it took me good 2 years to decide to have the surgery done. And let me tell you, it was the best thing I could of done for myself! Dr. Mandel made me feel so comfortable before and during surgery. The surgery went super quick with some minor discomfort, yet I was able to feel how gentle Dr. Mandel's hands were. I was able to see 50% better right after the procedure, I was amazed! By the next morning my vision was 20/20! The staff is amazing and very warm especially Nancy, she was the best.
My only regret is that I waited so long!
Choose doctors no more, Dr. Mandel is the only one, have a consultation and you will see by yourself.

Dr. Mandel changed my life. I have always been quite blind. At one point, I made the mistake of buying dark glasses. If anyone moved them, I had to feel around various surfaces to try to figure out where they were. Finally, my husband convinced me to get lasik. That is when I found Dr. Mandel. He had the best reviews online, had won many awards, etc., but more than that, I knew two patients who had gotten lasik by Dr. Mandel some years ago and still had perfect vision. Going to Dr. Mandel's office was quite a different experience than any of the other offices I visited. His staff was prompt, courteous and very attentive. There was never a long wait and Dr. Mandel especially made you feel like he was going to really focus in giving you perfect vision - rather than treating you as a number. Over a year later, I am incredibly happy with my vision. I now have better than 20/20. Although Dr. Mandel is pricier than other doctors, for me getting the best for my eyes was the right choice. I would definitely recommend everyone who cares about their eyes and are scared about the whole experience to get lasik with Dr. Mandel. You won't regret it.

A great experience. I have been an eye patient of Dr. Mandel's for almost 3 years. I am a former contact wearer and my eyes started to get aggravated and allergic to wearing contacts over time. Dr. Mandel never pressured me into surgery and allowed me to try other options while still wearing contacts to see if we could fix the issue. It became apparent that the Lasik surgery was the best idea for the long term health of my eyes. The procedure itself was a lot easier than I thought. My anxieties going in were worse than the actual procedure. Dr. Mandes' staff is very thorough and easy to work with.

I've been using Mandel vision for many years and I've been extremely pleased with the results and the service by the doctors and staff. The pre op and follow up care was thorough and readily available.

I had PRK by Dr. Mandel with great results and I had another surgery 9 years ago with Dr. Odrich for a pterygium on my eye and I had great results. I was finally able to wear contacts after wearing glasses for 15 years.

Now I don't have to wear contacts and it's really helped my active lifestyle with skiing and triathlons.

If you are looking for the best Laser Eye Surgeon in New York, please don't look any further. Dr. Mandel was recommended by my co-workers, many of whom had laser surgery through him. I feel extremely lucky to have been referred to him - scares me to think I might have trusted anyone else!

Dr. Mandel and his wonderful staff have the utmost patience and commitment to each person to provide the best care and expertise in this field. I quickly realized this after my first consultation and proved to be true to the very end.

I've been wearing contact lenses for almost 20 years and apparently that wreaked havoc on my eyes! So after 6 months of only wearing my glasses and after 3 consultations in-between, it was determined that I was not an ideal candidate for this procedure. Although I was extremely disappointed, he laboriously took the time to make this decision and I completely trusted his assessment.

The technology he uses for the testing is truly state of the art as well. I have a hard time believing anyone else would be this meticulous and conscientious. Dr. Mandel and his staff really gave me the time and effort to make this work for me and I was deeply appreciative of that. They knew how badly I wanted this! Anyway, we decided to wait for this new technology coming out in the next year and I'm hopeful it will happen then!

Deciding to have laser surgey on my eyes was a big deal. After conducting my research into specialists in the field, I chose Mandel Vision. I was struck by how knowledgeable and thorough Dr. Mandel was from pre-op to post-op. I was also impressed by how professional Dr. Mandel's staff is. Not only were they able to clearly answer any question I had, they're also extremely personable and just pleasant. I think the staff at Mandel Vision is a reflection of the type of professional Dr. Mandel is. He's truly an outstanding doctor. My decision to have Mandel Vision perform my lasik surgey is without a doubt one of the best decisions I have ever made. I recommend Mandel Vision without reservation.

I recently had PRK surgery done at Mandel Vision and it has been the best decision I've made regarding my eyes. I've had constant issues in the past with contacts drying out with the weather or dust at work, or falling out with sports. My eye site is 20-15 about a month after surgery and still improving.

Dr. Mandel and his staff were very personable and very thorough in describing the procedure and any risks associated, and I was amazed at the amount of tests that were done beforehand to ensure proper measurements were taken of my eyes. Before the surgery, I was taken to the pre op room to relax and was able to speak with Dr. Mandel once more (he has a great sense of humor). The surgery itself was very short and I never felt a thing. I had some issues with the bandages staying in post op (twice) but the staff were very helpful in seeing that I was taken care of almost immediately. Dr Mandel also gave me a call the night of the procedure just to make sure everything was ok.

I highly recommend Mandel Vision

When you are planning to get laser vision correction surgery, whether LASIK or PRK, make sure that you do your homework. I would recommend that you visit several doctors for the free consultation and pick the one that you get the best feeling about. I wouldn't recommend basing a surgery decision involving your eyes on price.

My search is coming full circle today. I started looking on Yelp and now I am writing the review. I don't write too many reviews, so that should signal to you that I am EXTREMELY satisfied with my experience.

I had three different consultations.

The first had a very "factory" feel to it. They were really moving patients in and out of there. I did not meet the surgeon during the visit. It was definitely the cheapest option of the three.

The second was a doctor that my family has been going to for a few years. The visit was better than the first, but they did not have their own laser so there was going to be this hand-off between their office and the Laser Center. It didn't make me nervous but I was a little less comfortable with that.

The third was Dr. Mandel. Dr. Mandel operates his own equipment in his own office. He is very personable, friendly, and most importantly, very experienced and highly regarded in the field of laser vision correction. His staff is incredibly knowledgeable, professional, and experienced. They did the most thorough consultation and had the strictest pre-surgery criteria for amount of time you had to keep contacts out, etc. This made me feel like Dr. Mandel was after the BEST POSSIBLE RESULT and not just a successful one. After all, this is surgery and not buying a coffeemaker at Target. You can have 20/15, 20/20, 20/25 vision afterward, and my guess is that all are CONSIDERED successful procedures.

I had the procedure a week ago. I went home afterward, followed my instructions and slept a lot, and woke up the next morning and headed to my follow-up. I measured 20/15 vision that morning and went back to work. I had my one week follow up today and still 20/15, and I could tell it was slightly better than a week before. My eyes feel great and I can see better than I could with contacts.

Give Dr Mandel's office a call and setup the consultation. If you do multiple like I did, I'm sure you'll come to the same conclusion.

I have had poor vision for a very long time. I was never able to use contacts because the idea of touching my own eyeball every day really freaked me out. So I wore glasses most of the time... until I decided that I was sick of it. I went for a consultation with Dr. Mandel, not knowing what to expect. At 19, I thought maybe I was too young and he would turn me away until I was a little bit older. I was also nervous about if he said I could do the surgery- would it hurt? Would it be uncomfortable? Would something go wrong? However, after meeting with Dr. Mandel, I was pleased to find out I was a perfect candidate for lasik surgery, my vision has been stable for over a year and 19 was not too young. I was also reassured by Dr. Mandel's demeanor. He was extremely kind and comforting, and he assured me that nothing would go wrong, he was good at what he did. And he was right! My surgery went beautifully/ Dr. Mandel really is the BEST he was calm and kept me calm, and also gave me vision that was BETTER than 20/20! I was ecstatic. I was feeling great as early as that very evening. My classes resumed from break just two days afterward, and I was perfectly ready. For the first time in my life I was able to sit in class and take notes without straining to see. My whole life has changed for the better, I can finally see!
DO this surgery, and do it with Dr. Mandel!

Not that they need another 5-star review, but Dr. Mandel and the team at Mandel Vision are the cream of the crop when it comes to service, precision and extraordinary results.

From the little things, like keeping an on-time appointment schedule, giving you realistic times for how long an appointment will take and always calling you in advance to remind you of an appointment, to the patient and professional bedside manner of Dr. Mandel himself, the entire experience is a pleasure.

But, of course, the best thing of all is the results. I am DONE with contacts and glasses once and for all! The whole procedure takes less than an hour -- really only about 10 minutes for the LASIK itself -- and I could see 1 minute after the procedure!!! Dry eyes are the only lingering side effect, and that's totally expected! Also, I only had my surgery ONE week ago and I'm 20/15! I feel like I have x-ray eyes!

I cannot say enough about how delightful my experience was at Mandel Vision. I honestly don't know why anyone would think twice about getting LASIK. It's a little pricey, but it's your eyes! My new vision was worth every penny.

From the little things, like keeping an on-time appointment schedule, giving you realistic times for how long an appointment will take and always calling you in advance to remind you of an appointment, to the patient and professional bedside manner of Dr. Mandel himself, the entire experience is a pleasure.

But, of course, the best thing of all is the results. I am DONE with contacts and glasses once and for all! The whole procedure takes less than an hour -- really only about 10 minutes for the LASIK itself -- and I could see 1 minute after the procedure!!! Dry eyes are the only lingering side effect, and that's totally expected! Also, I only had my surgery ONE week ago and I'm 20/15! I feel like I have x-ray eyes!

I cannot say enough about how delightful my experience was at Mandel Vision. I honestly don't know why anyone would think twice about getting LASIK. It's a little pricey, but it's your eyes! My new vision was worth every penny.

.

Pre-surgery, Doc and staff kept me calm and relaxed. Surgery was about 15 minutes from entering to exiting the room. 10 minutes in the chair. Once the anesthetic eye drops wore off (about 20-30 minutes post-op), I started feeling moderate burning and itching. One hour later, it merely felt like I had dry contacts in. ONE HOUR!!! THATS IT!! Now, it is the next morning, and I am better than 20/20 according to Doc. The "halo" effect is minimal, and I am ready for work,
Thanks Doc!!!

I contacted Mandel Vision over two and a half years ago, and due to the nature of my work (I'm a performer) I was unable to have the procedure done back then. But when I called two weeks ago, they still remembered me, and I couldn't tell you how happy I am that I stuck to my decision and went through with something I've been afraid of for a long time!

My procedure had taken a little longer than others, because I had a case of "bubbles" after my flap had been made. I was told it was normal, and it only happens once in a blue moon. They went ahead with the second eye while waiting for the bubbles in my first eye to disappear and although it took quite a while (because I'm just that lucky,) my left eye was done in less than 2 minutes and then eventually when we went back to the first eye.

I will say honestly, that perhaps because it was the waiting, whether my eye was just exhausted, or whatever the reason was, I could not keep my eyes open. However, after the procedure, I could tell I was able to see clearly right away, but I couldn't keep my lids open and I was so sensitive to light. On my drive home, I had to wrap my scarf around my sunglasses because anything more than pitch dark was causing me to tear.

I got home, took my Tylenol PMs, slept for four hours, woke up, and I could see perfectly. I haven't had any problems, other than the occasional dryness and the red spots all over the whites of my eyes from the suction from when the flap was made. (Which I'm told will disappear in two weeks time.)

The most uncomfortable part was the first hour when I was well.. not sleeping. It was agonizing because I couldn't stop tearing from the light! But soon after my nap, it's as if I woke up from a dream and I can now see better than 20/20. It was worth every second of discomfort, and I would recommend anyone who's had doubts to go ahead and just DO IT!

The staff, by the way, from Dr Mandel to Missy to Nancy to Gabriela to everyone in reception, were amazing. They are truly professional, genuine, caring, and made me feel at ease the entire way through.

Just returned from my follow-up appointment, and my vision is better than 20/20 on day one!

Surgery was a cake walk. Painless and incredibly fast. And aside from some light-sensitivity, I was seeing great immediately. 30 minutes later and I felt like my eyes were 18 again!

Dr. Mandel & his entire staff were absolutely awesome. Friendly, informative, funny, accommodating, caring. I really cant thank them enough.

My wife is next!!

All I can say is that throughout every step of the process, I was very happy with my choice of Dr. Mandel. Making the decision to do lasik was a bit scary, but it was made so much better by the fact that I felt I was in the best hands possible. I highly recommend choosing him as your lasik doctor.

What I can say about Dr. Mandel is incredible. He is NOT a mill like most lasik centers. Instead, he takes the time to get to know you..and treats you like you are a special patient. Also, his staff was great. Nancy was my lasik coordinator and she was knowledgable and answered every quesion I had and kept me calm also! I had gotten about 3 other consulations and had picked Dr. Mandel bc I felt the most comfortable with him and had trust as well. He has all the credentials too ..went to Harvard=) I highly highly recommend going to him..yes..it will be a little more money spent...but it is well worth the investment!

I had my Lasik done this past Wednesday, July 7th. The whole process was absolutely amazing. They start by putting you in a relaxation/zen room to get you relaxed for the procedure and then make sure you are comfortable. Their is no pain in the procedure at all, just a slight pressure. There is more pain going to get your teeth cleaned at the dentist. The only thing you feel is a slight pressure, no pain at all. I was seeing 20/15 vision by the next morning and walked out of the surgery with about 20/20 vision. I highly recommend Dr. Mandel to anyone.

After a consult with another office, it was clear (ha ha) that Dr. Mandel was the right choice for me. From the minute I walked in for a consult to the minute I left my followup visit, I knew I was in good hands. Dr. Mandel and his staff are experienced and knowledgeable. You never feel like you're just a number and you never feel rushed or uninformed.

I haven't seen clearly without glasses/contacts for 25 years... until yesterday.

Thanks Doc!

Don??t go to the lowest bidder for eye surgery! Go for the best return on your dollar... and the safest. You get what you pay for. I got my life back. Thank you Dr. Eric R. Mandel!
It has been over two weeks since my lasik surgery. From simple things like reading the print on my car??s GPS screen to actually seeing everything on the shelves at grocery store, I get reminders of what Mandel did for me. I no longer struggle to see the eyes of my clients when I meet with them. Do know what a pleasure it is to see your wife and child without the interference of glasses?
Hats off to Dr. Mandel??s staff at Mandelvision. I have rarely encountered a group who are simultaneously so knowledgeable and yet so personable. How could anyone go to high volume clinic just to be treated as another number, when you have sane alternative such as Mandelvision?
You only get one pair of eyes, so trust them to someone who has received so many awards and accolades that he needs a bigger office just to display them all! I highly recommend Dr. Eric R. Mandel.

I got my lasik procedure done a week ago with Dr. Mandel and I couldn't be happier with the results. Dr. Mandel along with his amazing staff were great from beginning to end. They answered all my questions, made themselves available at all times and took me step by step through the whole process. Truly an amazing experience. I'm glad i choose them and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for lasik surgery.

I really don??t know where to begin. I??ve wanted Lasik surgery for the longest, but have always been extremely concerned about who would perform the procedure. After all, this is eye surgery and you cannot just trust anyone with your eyes. A good friend of mine recommended Dr. Eric Mandel and I am SO grateful I went with him.

Dr. Mandel and his staff are the best! They are professional and more so caring and gentle. My fianc and I were sold from the consult. What surprised us most is after having a few routine tests performed to determine whether I was a candidate, Dr. Mandel, himself actually did the consult with us, without any rush. He took his time and answered all questions thoroughly. Dr. Mandel is the kind of person who gives off a warm and kind vibe allowing you to feel comfortable while in his care.

Again, I went through a series of tests the day of the consult and was told I was a prime candidate for Lasik. I made an appointment for surgery two months later and don??t believe the actual Lasik procedure lasted more than 10 minutes. My fianc Nicole was there for moral support and not only did they take care of me, they also took very good care of her, allowing her to be with me at all times, with the exception of the actual surgery; however, she was able to stand directly outside the room and not only keep an eye on me, but watch the entire procedure via a monitor. During surgery, she was also assigned a room to relax her things while the surgery took place.

After surgery, I was assisted literally by the hand of Dr. Mandel to the very same room and was given to my fianc to relax. Instantly, he lifted the shades and simply told me to look. He then asked me what I could see. We all laughed because my reply was simply, ??everything!? He them sat me down, check my eyes and proceeded to give us instructions on what to and to do the rest of that day. The next morning, I arrived for my follow-up appointment at 10am sharp and before we fully signed in, we were being escorted in to a room to meet with Dr. Mandel, who joined us literally seconds later. I don??t believe the follow-up visit was more than 15 min, again, including check in, meeting with the doctor and leaving. It was almost like being treated as royalty. He??s also great with samples. The lubricant drops needed before and after surgery are pretty expensive, considering how frequent you??ll use them. They stock you up with plenty during each visit.

Bottom line ?? If you are looking to have the Lasik or PRK surgery performed, Mr. Eric Mandel and his staff are the way to go! You will NOT be disappointed in the results or the service. My fianc is now changing her opthamologist to Dr. Mandel because of the great experience.

You actually meet with and receive consultation from Dr. Mandel. I had PRK eye surgery and he was phenomenal in walking me through the risks and benefits. He and his staff were very reassuring. I always felt that a successful outcome for me, whether I chose the surgery or not, was the most important thing to Dr. Mandel. Follow-up care is exceptional. I have recommended him to several friends and colleagues, whom have also raved about their care.

Highly Highly Highly recommend Dr.Mandel as LASIK specialist and ophthalmologist. First I went to Dr. Soloway to get LASIK, but then I choose Dr. Mandel as I felt more comfortable with Dr. Mandel.

I had PRK yesterday and feel great. I am back at work. I've been told to expect my sight to worsen a bit over the next few days and then it will start to improve. Dr. Mandel and his staff were excellent. They talked me through the entire procedure. The assistant during the procedure was so nice and calming. Dr. Mandel followed up the evening of the procedure. I went into for a check and go back in 2 more days. I am so happy that I decided to do this procedure and use Dr. Mandel.

Dr. Mandel was recommended by my optometrist on whom Dr. Mandel performed Lasik. Therefore, I didn't shop around. I am very happy, better than 20/20 from almost blind with astigmatism.

I had a couple of consults at various other lasik centers and Dr. Mandel's equipment is far more sophisticated than most of the other centers I went to. With his extensive background and accomplished track record, I felt I was in the right hands. A week later I was right and now I am 20/20 after being legally blind for the majority of my life. This is a life changing experience and Dr. Mandel changes lives with a blink of the eye. I received surgery on 8/17/2009 and today (8/26/2009), I am 20/20 (maybe even a little better).

Dr. Mandel's glowing reputation certainly precedes him and rightfully so. His professionalism, experience, and attention to detail have truly earned him his many prestigious accolades.

Dr. Mandel will only perform a procedure if he is absolutely certain that your result will be perfect. At my first evaluation, my corneas were in such a beaten up state that he gave me a prescription for eye drops and asked me to return at a later time for another free evaluation. I had been to 2 other LASIK surgeons before seeing Dr. Mandel and neither of them addressed that issue. They just wanted me to make appointments for surgery. At my second evaluation with Dr. Mandel, he determined that I was a good candidate for LASIK. On the day that my procedure was scheduled, all of the tests were run again to make sure that we had the latest data on my eyes. One of the tests yielded results that did not match the previous ones. Dr. Mandel did not want to procede until he determined the reason for this. He consulted another leading expert in the field and I had the procedure done 2 days later. Every time I called the office for updates, Dr. Mandel personally came to the phone and explained everything. I am very happy with my results!

Dr. Mandel makes his patients feel very comfortable during the entire process. He explains everything thoroughly and has a great sense of humor. Dr. Mandel truly cares about his patients and goes the extra mile for them. He called me in the evening on the day that I had LASIK just to check up on me and make sure everything was okay even though I was going to see him the next morning.

The staff at Mandel Vision is also great. Nancy was my LASIK coordinator. I was so nervous at first but she guided me through every step of the way and answered all of my questions thoroughly.

If you are considering laser vision correction you cannot go wrong by seeing Dr. Mandel. He will not perform any procedure unless he knows that he will get perfect results for you.

Dr. Mandel did not want to procede until he determined the reason for this. He consulted another leading expert in the field and I had the procedure done 2 days later. Every time I called the office for updates, Dr. Mandel personally came to the phone and explained everything. I am very happy with my results!

Dr. Mandel makes his patients feel very comfortable during the entire process. He explains everything thoroughly and has a great sense of humor. Dr. Mandel truly cares about his patients and goes the extra mile for them. He called me in the evening on the day that I had LASIK just to check up on me and make sure everything was okay even though I was going to see him the next morning.

The staff at Mandel Vision is also great. Nancy was my LASIK coordinator. I was so nervous at first but she guided me through every step of the way and answered all of my questions thoroughly.

If you are considering laser vision correction you cannot go wrong by seeing Dr. Mandel. He will not perform any procedure unless he knows that he will get perfect results for you.

Pros: personal attention, meticulous work

Cons: none

You must go to Dr. Mandel for your laser vision correction. Period. I had a very great experience, just had it done last week, and I feel great. My vision is better than 20/20 now. My friend and sister had it done with him about 8 years ago and their still perfect.

After wearing contact lenses for almost 40 years enough was enough. You cannot walk down a street in NYC without something blowing into your contacts. Wow is that painful! Dr Mandel and staff were professional,attentive and very patient. They are a very concerned and caring staff. The eye exam prior to surgery was so very thorough. They listen to your concerns instead of talking at you, or down to you. You are made to feel as relaxed as possible. I am glad I choose Dr Mandels office for my procedure.

After scratching my cornea when something got under my contacts a few months ago, I decided to get corrective eye surgery and be done with contacts and glasses. Several colleagues and friends recommended Dr. Mandel so I scheduled a screening.

I was very impressed from the first visit...the technicians and staff were very professional and attentive, and I was very impressed by the amount of time Dr. Mandel spent with me answering all my questions that evening. The screening was very thorough and I had no doubts about going forward with the surgery.

The day of the surgery Dr. Mandel and everyone at the office did a great job getting me ready and calming my jitters. The surgery went off without a hitch and I was able to go home immediately afterwards and slept through the night with no problems.

The next morning my vision was perfect and even though I had a pronounced astigmatism before the surgery, I was now seeing better than 20/20!

I highly recommend Dr. Mandel for his excellent results, great attitute, fantastic staff and his attentiveness to all of his patients.

As a Baby-Boomer, and an RN, with astigmatism, far-sightedness and presbyopia, I was skeptical & absolutely frightened to have the Monovision procedure done. I wanted to have a procedure that would result in vision correction with total elimination of need for contacts & glasses. After much web research, and listening to recommendations from co-workers,I knew Dr. Mandel would be the most qualified . His expertise is impressive. and he and his wonderful staff were professional, highly competent, supportive, experienced , used excellent infection control techniques , and were masters of this state of the art laser technology. They walked me through each step and explained everything. Immediately after the prodcedure I could read even fine newsprint without glasses! No pain, no problems, no worries! Now 4 months later-I can see even better!! Thank you so much to Dr. Mandel & all at Mandel Vision for giving me back my sight!! I recommend them highly to anyone who is considering having Lasik surgery . Dr. Mandel is a Miracle Worker!
