If you are on the fence about having LASIK surgery, I definitely recommend doing it and absolutely recommend that it’s done by Dr. Adler. I was terrified about having the process done, but Dr. Adler was extremely comforting and reassuring. He is extremely sharp, very nice and is always ready to answer questions. The staff is professional and nice too. My surgery went really well and I couldn’t believe I was actually able to walk out of the office that same day seeing without my glasses. I felt absolutely no pain during the procedure or at any point afterwards. I went from terrible vision (since I was a young child) to having 20/20 vision!!!
