Dr. Millin did my Lasik surgery more than a year ago, and I couldn't be happier! I had an astigmatism in both eyes and wearing my glasses/contacts became impossible to deal with. I was getting pretty severe headaches because of this. So I decided to get Lasik surgery. Dr. Millin was nothing...more

I had LASIK done by Dr. Millin in October 2016. I am still very pleased with the results. I was very hesitant about having it done, but am so glad I did. He did great. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Dr. Millin did my LASIK in February of 2016. The procedure itself was very quick and easy. Dr. Millin and his staff made me feel very at ease with the thought of having anything done to my eyes. Even almost 2 years later my vision is great and I'm seeing 20/10!!

I went in for a fairly routine exam but had a very positive experience. I found Dr. Millin to be very professional and personable. He made an extra effort to accommodate my schedule. I am thinking of having LASIK surgery and would not go anywhere else.
