Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Manger III "The first thing I do when treating patients is to find out what their goals and expectations are from LASIK. What are their specific visual needs? An airline pilot, a police officer or even an athlete usually have different visual needs than from an accountant or an attorney. How old is the patient? A 50 year old has different visual concerns than a 25 year old. There is no "one size fits all" approach to LASIK surgery. We customize the treatment for each and every patient. Once we establish what the patient needs, we spend time with our patients to educate and to ensure that all their questions are answered. I find that patients are much more comfortable with LASIK once they are well-educated and fully understand what to expect from the procedure. "

Dr. Manger did an exceptional job on my LASIK surgery. I was 20/1000 before my LASIK procedure and the next day after my LASIK I could see 20/20! Dr. Manger was very thorough from start to finish.

Dr. Manger was my #1 choice when I was researching LASIK surgeons. There is no other LASIK surgeon with as much experience as Dr. Manger.

Before arriving at Saddleback Eye Center, I was told I wasn’t a candidate for LASIK by my optometrist due to my astigmatism. After receiving the most thorough and detailed eye exam, I knew I was in the best hands with Dr. Manger. Not only was I a candidate, but I had the procedure done the same...more

Before my LASIK procedure with Dr. Manger my vision was 20/600 and now I'm thrilled to see the world with 20/15 vision! As an individual working in the field of medicine, I have worked with physicians (i.e. ophthalmologists, neurosurgeons, hospice care physicians etc). Dr. Manger provides...more
