First Thoughts After iLASIK
"Would recommend this to everyone. I had very little discomfort. It was awesome. Thanks for everything"
Garret M.
First Thoughts after PRK

"Having PRK at the Eye Institute was a great experience! The process was smooth, the staff is knowledgeable & very helpful. I really liked Dr. Schirber he answered all of my questions honestly and when it came to surgery I know what was going on & what to expect the whole time. I wish I would have done this five years ago... It's AWESOME!"
