A total nightmare. Despite being told I was a perfect candidate after having Dornic do my surgery, I have serious eye complications and my eyelashes never grew back. No night vision and retina tears is just the tip of the iceberg. I would never recommend this surgery but most of all felt this...more

Minuses: did not wash hands before working. Did not wear gloves. Did not explain what was doing. Did not advise on post procedure do's and dont's. Pluses: scheduled appointment quickly. Staff courteous and friendly. Technical skills good.
