      I CAN SEE! I had LASIK on April 6th 2016. The procedure was so quick and painless, it was 10 minutes TOPS for both eyes combined. Driving to my post op appointment the next day was so fun to be able to read signs without having glasses on! I was 20/20 the next day! At my month check up I was 20/15! Even better! It is seriously the best thing I've ever done. Dr. Akler and her staff are absolutely AMAZING, I can not say enough good things about them. They were very helpful with all my questions.

      I can now see! I had a contact prescription of -4.5 and now have 20/15 vision! I am so happy that I decided to get LASIK and have Dr. Akler perform the surgery. The procedure was quick and painless and Dr. Akler was very kind and patient with all my questions before and after the surgery. Her office staff are extremely friendly and helpful as well!

      I searched for quite a while before I found Akler Eye Center. I read multiple reviews and decided this was the place I would go for my Lasik treatment. I called and set up an appointment, and they were able to get me in very quickly. I was surprised that I got to meet with her at my consultation. Afterwards, my surgery was set for only two weeks away! I was pleasantly surprised. Going in for the surgery I was nervous, but they put my mind at ease and talked me through the whole thing. So great!

      Highly recommend!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you so much! I am very pleased and satisfied with the choice of you being the doctor for the LASIK operation! Will be congratulating you later on today for my post op follow up. I will go back to resting my eye's now. Smh.... It was all worth it.????

      After doing hours of research online, I decided to have the procedure done through the Akler Eye Center.I was able to drive to her office this morning, after having my second cataract removed yesterday, and my vision was remarkable! I upgraded to the laser surgery and Crystalens implant. My results have been life-changing. I am now able to see my phone, computer or read road signs while driving. One day post-op, I am extremely happy with my decision to rely on Dr. Akler?s skill and expertise.
      in Lathrup Village, MI |
      Choosing Dr. Akler for LASIK eye surgery was definitely one of the BEST DECISIONS I EVER MADE IN MY LIFE!!! The day of the surgery, her staff was very nice, friendly and made me feel relax. During the surgery, Dr. Akler warmly and calmly talked me through as she preformed the procedure. It was COMPLETELY painless, simple and very fast!!! I could not believe it only took about 8-10 minutes!! I'm so glad I finally mustard up some courage and made one of the best decisions in my life!!!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
