    Dr Akler & staff are very friendly. Dr Akler is a great surgeon. Great place to go for Lasik or any of your eye needs.

    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!
    in Oak Park, MI |
    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!

    Best money I've ever spent! I was referred to this clinic by a friend who had Lasik done here and had a great experience. Dr. Akler and her staff were extremely professional and comprehensive, walked me through everything they were doing, and explained why the procedure they chose was the best one for me. I had glasses/contacts for nearly 25 years. My prescription was -8.5 before getting iLasik and the next day I now have 20/15 vision. My eyes burned for a couple of hours right after, but after

    Dr. Akler's knowledge, professionalism and bedside manor blew me away. She is clearly excellent at what she does - it shows in her confidence, her results, and her ability to comfort the patient (I was a very nervous patient). I would recommend her to anyone needing laser eye surgery. The entire experience from the first consultation to the follow-ups has been nothing but positive.
    in Newport, MI |
    I would definitely recommend Dr. Akler. I was very anxious about getting LASIK, but she's very understanding, patient, and professional. She has a great bedside manner and talks to you throughout the entire procedure so you feel comfortable. My follow-up appointment showed I can now see 20/15 so I am very thrilled with that! The nurses and staff were also very helpful and friendly.
    in Garden City, MI |
    I recently had cataract surgery performed on both eyes by Dr. Akler. The results are phenomenal. I had monovision done that matched my monovision contacts. I am able to see clearly at both distance and up close. It's unbelievable. I can see dirt in my house now I couldn't see before. :-) The office visits were great, the office staff were all very nice and explained options clearly. My experience at the surgery center was equally pleasant; nice people and the schedule was like clockwork.
    Waterford, MI |
    I was very nervous to get lasik done but dr. Anklet and her staff were very comforting and understanding. They also made the procedure quick and painless!
    in Detroit, MI |
    My experience with Dr Akler and her staff has been awesome! Respectful, courteous, professional, and personable -- every one of them, even at the out-patient center where the surgery is performed. As a patient who does not like dealing with medical professionals in general, my recommendation does not come lightly. However, I highly recommend Akler Eye Center! They have truly earned all five stars.
    in Chesterfield, MI |
    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.
    in Ann Arbor, MI |
    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!
    in Wayne, MI |
    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!
    in Detroit |
    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.????
    in Grosse Ile, MI |
    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!!!
