My Brother and I got LASIK here together. The entire process was extremely fast and professional. Healing is quick and in office appointments were always faster than expected. I went in for a free consultation on a Wednesday, and the following Friday was getting LASIK. My prescription for glasses was -200, and by the morning after surgery I was seeing 20/15, better than I ever expected. I cannot recommend this place enough, the change in vision is life changing.

I had my lasik surgery in Feb. and I am very happy w/ the results and the experience at Boston Laser. My only complaint was the parking! (haha) But if you are having lasik surgery, I would recommend them. Great experience

The staff are very polite and professional. The time and the procedure are very quick and easy. The doctors are skilled at what they do. Most importantly, the information that they provided are very easy to understand. The paperwork is very quick and easy. Everything at Boston Laser was very quick and easy for me. I'm glad that my friend told me about this place.

Had PRK surgery 1 month ago, 1st week was difficult as was explained by the explained by the doctor. But this is the best thing I have ever done in my life and probably the only thing I will ever leave a review for. Thank you for fixing my eyes.

I had a great experience with doctors and nurses at Boston Laser. My friend referred this place to me. I was so nervous about getting my lasik surgery. I went to a free consultation and I decided to do it. I was able to see clearly right after my surgery. Thank you to everyone! The follow-up appointments went very well. They took care of me. I referred my friend here and he did it too. He also had a great experience!

Procedure was quick and painless. I was definitely nervous and I got through it with flying colors (so I was told). The procedure (I got mono-vision) took all of 8 minutes maybe. Give or take a few minutes. Recommend them. Just don't drive there for your followup, there isn't much parking I don't believe.

I had the PRK surgery, I am now one week from surgery with no complications and amazing vision. Boston Laser are an excellent team, answered all my questions and concerns, were efficient in responding to me, and made the process as simple as possible. Parking is available, you’ll just need to make sure to pay the meters. Highly recommended!
