Carbondale, IL |
I recently has LASIK performed by Dr. Umana and I am extremely happy with my procedure and Dr. Umana. His bedside manner is wonderful, he is very friendly and personable. There was a slight issue when they were cutting my cornea with the laser however because of Dr. Umana's experience and expertise he was able to correct the problem by hand and continue with the procedure. My vision is now perfect and I couldn't be happier with Dr. Umana!
Friendly enough but patients are herded in and out like cattle, not pleased with my Lasik surgery as my eyesight is worse now than before. Will look for another provider for my other eye.

Worked on eye lids. One eye lid open very wide. One eye can hardly open. Very poor workmanship. Do not recommend.
