Lasik Surgery Anxiety

Do you want to have Lasik eye surgery, but you are extremely nervous about letting someone operate on your eyes? Do you want to gain more freedom to live spontaneously and free yourself from contact lens fees? If our two decades at Manhattan Lasik Center has taught us anything, it is that everyone has feelings about having Lasik. Some of our patients are ecstatic to get rid of spectacles while others are very timid and need reassurance that the procedure is completely painless.
