Dr. Lazer did a wonderful job examining my eyes for cataracts and an excellent job on my cataract surgery. My surgery went very well and all of the nurses and staff were very nice to me and answered all of my questions. This is the first time that I can remember that I can actually see at a distance out of my left eye without glasses! It is truly an amazing feeling! I would highly recommend Dr. Lazer and his team of doctors for cataract surgery!

Takes time with patients. Very knowledgeable, explains things in laymen terms, and seems to care about his patients well being. Took the time to call personally after my eye surgery.
