Dr. Kornmehl was fantastic. His practice is well organized, informed and friendly. Was certain that I would not be able to have corrected eye surgery. This practice tested and retested my eyes and gave me realistic expectations. I originally was a little hesitant to do any kind of eye surgery with all the info available online. Everyone at this practice was very calming and friendly and made my decision for eye correction a happy choice. Dr Kornmehl gave me my vision back. I am elated.
I am extremely happy with my results and pleased with my decision to have eye surgery with Dr. Kornmehl. He was professional, efficient and skilled. He operates a well oiled machine. His office staff were friendly and accommodating and helpful in addressing any of my needs. I would strongly recommend Dr. Kornmehl. I tell anyone who will listen, friends and family included, if they are considering lasik to set up a consultation.

My experience with Dr. Kornmehl and his staff was wonderful. Dr. Kornmehl is known as one of the best by his own peers, and my results proved that out. I had terrible eye sight and underwent PRK. It's been a month and my vision is excellent. No complications at all. Also, interestingly, my night driving is better than it was before! Also, before I decided to get corrective eye surgery, super dry eyes had plagued me for years, and I suffered allergies with little bumps on my eye lids; I had gone

Dr. Kornmehl is one of the most ethical physicians I have met. He handled my situation, which I've been suffering with for years, in a few visits. He is quick, but if someone can fix my problem that quickly after seeing SO many other doctors, I don't mind. I will be recommending him to my family, friends and colleagues.
