Dr Akler performed cataract surgery on both my eyes in October and corrected my stigmatisms. I can now read, do needlework and play the piano without bifocals. The whole staff takes good care of their patients and answers any questions. I'll continue to go to Akler Eye Center for check-ups, and recommend them.

Recently, I had Lasik surgery by Dr. Akler and her team. The whole experience could not have been better. Her professionalism and bedside manners were the main reasons I decided to have the surgery. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Akler and her team for any type of eyecare issues. Honestly, she was by far one of best doctors I have ever dealt with. During the surgery she made me feel at ease and I had no concern about her abilities to perform my Lasik. I would do it all over again!!

Dr. Akler and her staff are amazing! They are very professional and caring. Everything was explained in detail and they were able to answer all of my questions. I am usually very sensitive about my eyes but the LASIK procedure was very quick and painless. Before I had trouble viewing from a distance to a point where I could be legally blind.I now have 20/20! I just wish I had done this sooner.

My sister and I did lots of research before choosing Dr. Akler for Lasik, and it was WELL worth it. From the friendly staff who are always available, to giving you appointments that are convenient for you, to the pricing and options for Lasik- I would absolutely recommend! Dr. Akler is so sweet, warm, and welcoming. She was very personable and made me feel comfortable. If I had to do it again, I would choose Dr. Akler, hands down!

Excellent doctor! Dr. Akler performed Lasik surgery for me in 2004 and did a great job so when I needed cataract surgery, I went back. Very pleased with the complete experience. I would highly recommend Dr. Michelle Akler to anyone requesting information or problems regarding their eyesight. Assistant Roxanna was also very professional and comforting during the process.

Had an amazing experience with Dr. Akler and her staff. She was very straightforward with all the options and her recommendations and I really appreciate that in a doctor. The results turned out amazing and the staff has been absolutely wonderful about keeping up with me to see how things are going. I shopped around a few other places and pricing was pretty much inline from what I heard everywhere else. I would highly recommend you get your free consultation and have a conversation with Dr.Akler

I would definitely recommend Dr. Akler. My experience was really great. I needed an eye exam and I thought I needed some laser surgery on my left eye. She confirmed that I did need the laser surgery and performed it that very day since my eye was already dilated from the exam. Both Dr. Akler and her staff explained thoroughly what would happen during the surgery and made sure I was at ease. They also verified my insurance would cover. Everyone was pleasant and professional.

Dr.Akler performed my lasik surgery two weeks ago and I couldn't be more happy with the results. She and her team were thorough and helpful. They made me feel comfortable and the entire process went seamlessly. Post op care and follow ups have been just as good. Would highly recommend Dr Akler to anyone looking for LASIK or ophthalmologist!

I recently got LASIK from Dr. Akler and am amazed at the results and the overall experience! The consultation was easy and very informative. The staff is very friendly and put me at ease about the procedure, answering all the questions I had. The procedure itself felt like it only took about ten minutes. Dr Akler and her staff talked to me the entire time, which helped me relax. My vision is amazing now, and I'm so glad I went through with LASIK!
