Surgery at Los Angeles' Laser Eye Center is, simply put, the best thing I've ever done for myself. I started wearing glasses when I was nine and never thought that Iâ??d be free from those thick, heavy lenses. Well now, thanks to the Laser Eye Center,View More
I can see the alarm clock when I wake up. Plus, I can see when I swim, water ski or go to a movie. My initial and follow-up LASIK treatments were second-to-none. Everyone at the Laser Eye Center was patient, thoughtful and very knowledgeable.
I liked them so much that my brother and sister went in and had the LASIK procedure done too!!!
