Patient Comments (6)
Had Raindrop surgery, was totally straightforward with procedure and expectations of the outcome. Only 5 days since surgery and I have not had to reach for my "cheaters" once since Friday. Outcome for me thus far is actually better than was described to me prior to surgery.

I had LASIK surgery with Dr. Hartzell and it was perfect. He explains the procedure, and his staff makes the whole process easy. I was thinking of going out of the area, but I'm glad I chose Dr. Hartzell.

Went for a free consultation and all procedures and options were explained and my questions were answered. Best option was recommended but there was no "high pressure". Yesterday was surgery day for my first eye and today is the first time in forever I am working without glasses. Very pleased with Dr. Hartzell and his staff.

Dr. Hartzell and the staff at the Eye Center have been wonderful throughout my eye treatment. Dr. Hartzell had previously performed successful surgery on my son so I knew I could count on excellent care.
in Middleburg, PA |
Went for a 2nd opinion said I was a candidate per the dr and they other place said I was not. The whole time i was treated terrible and they just keep talking down about other places just didn't feel right, I went for a third opinion and they agreed with the first I should not get it done . i called eye center of pa to see if can get them to review and give me explanation why they think it not a issue, nope just canceled everything and said because i got a third opinion will see me anymore
