Patient Comments (2)

Went in for a Lasik consultation however he sold me a procedure that I did not ask for or need. He stated it would take 15 mins an eye and I would leave with "High Definition Vision". What I left with was a nightmare. The procedure took close to 2 hours and was complicated by permanent vision loss...more
