I had my lasik eye surgery last Thursday. I had a few visits in the center before having the surgery. The staff were very good, made me feel comfortable with the procedure. Dr Roberts was great in explaining everything to me in the consultations. I took his advice before surgery to prepare for the day. On the day of the surgery I arrived, was told to be prepared for a 3 hour visit. So, bring food and my anxiety meds. We arrived at the office, it was full of ppl who just had procedure and who were waiting. They got me right in for all of my pre op exams quickly, so quickly that I was prepped for surgery before eating and taking meds. The surgeo, Dr Insler came in to talk to me briefly. He was very short, and acted a bit bothered when I would ask a question. Next thing I knew it was my turn for surgery. I was very anxious going in, felt like cattle. (Move them in, move them out). Dr Insler was very short and direct with me and got very irritated when I was a bit anxious. I realise that he has done this procedure over 60,000 times but this was a first for me. He was quick and precise and I am glad that he seems to really know his stuff but his bed side manners leave a lot to be desired. Maybe if I had met him during one of the consulations and knew how he was going to be I would have been more prepared. My husband went back in to talk to the staff about it after he got me in the car and he found out why I was so upset. He was told that someone in managment would talk to me the following day for the follow visit, which didnt happen. I will see what happens this week for my post op visit. Like I said, Dr Roberts is great and caring.

I had lasik correction here and I am happy with the results. I went in with 20/400 which is legally blind. The day after I was 20/40 and the week after that I was 20/15... better than 20/20. I bought the insurance with was a few hundred dollars more and I regret doing that because I you don't get an eye exam every single year after that You lose the insurance.

This place is very nice decor, must be from all the money people spend on their eyes. Other than that, the staff seems competent, the machinery is the latest high tech and your guests can watch the Laser surgery on a TV monitor if they want. Bargain with them - all prices are negotiable!

My friend had vision correction surgery 3 years ago at this location and had very good results. Before undergoing the surgery she had to wear glasses and still had poor vision even with the glasses. After the surgery she has basically 20/20 vision with no glasses needed. She does have a little night glare but compared to before it is a great improvement.
