There are a bunch of offers online where one can get LASIK for $1,799. As it turns out there have been multiple advancements in the field for Laser Surgery in the 20 years since it's introduction. When I had my initial surgery my astigmatism was treatable; where those with larger astigmatism are not treatable with Lasik. Over the years my eyes regrew the astigmatism I had previously corrected, this resulted in a near sited condition that forced me to wear contacts to see clearly.

The doctor recommend PRK rather than Lasik. The Laser Eye Center uses a "state of the arts" system that perfects the image on the retina. It's worth paying a little more to get a perfected image for the brain to interpret.

We agreed to a action plan and scheduled the surgery. PRK is painful for 48 hours and uncomfortable for 3 additional days. The regiment of medicines adds a few hundred dollars to the overall expense. The Doctors offered me coupons on these medicines and a sample to get me through the weekend.

However getting nearly 20 - 20 vision back is fantastic! I'm not happy with having to use readers but once you pass 40 Presbyopia gets us all.

Having gone through it, the memory of the pain has faded. I'd do it again to see this well.

After 15 years from my first Lasik and multiple pregnancies, my eyes never went back to 20/20 vision. I was one of the few, I guess, that never gained my eye sight back to pre-pregnancy. Many quotes and consultations later, I went for Laser Eye Center. Couldn't be happier! If you've done Lasik before, most eye surgeons will recommend PRK. One did recommend Lasik again, but all 4 other doctors said Lasik reopens the flap of your eye that can cause regrowth of cells underneath, which causes your vision to possibly be blurred. Makes sense. Open a scab wound and you've got regrowth of skin and scarring. I'm not taking that chance. Went with PRK! If you asked me right after surgery if you should get this surgery, I'd say heck no! 3 days of immense pain I can't even describe. Can't open eyes. Can't do anything. Worse than Lasik when that only lasted one full day. I've heard of people walk out with Lasik and go back to work. Not me. 1 day of pain and lots of sleep got me through it. But PRK, I wanted to cry, which was probably good for my eyes anyways, keeping it lubricated. After 3 months and 5 or so after surgery visits, I am 25/20 and 20/20 and still improving. I am very happy with my vision now that I don't rely on glasses and squint at everything. Originally 40/20 and 30/20.

Yes, Laser Eye Center services a ton of people. It's a quick surgery! So it may seem like it's a factory line. But they take care of you. I would only say the guys working the table side seem not so happy but no worries. You don't deal with them much. Surgery was about 10-15 minutes or less. Prep and wait is probably the longer part. Total 1 hour or so.

Yes, they are nice people. Very caring and take the time to listen to you. Smile and be polite. They will be too. If you're already mad or rude, they will be the same. Even if they don't seem to be smiling, which I thought they'd be rude, they were actually very pleasant and joked with me.

Yes, the price is affordable! Even for a PRK! Quoted at other places for almost double what I paid here. What's expensive you might think is the prescription drops. Without medical, one drop (antibiotic) cost almost $800, however, I was able to get it through my doctor and pharmacy for copay. Another drops (anti-inflammatory) was about $600, however, they give you a rewards coupon for Walgreens that gets you the drops for $60 or so. This one I couldn't get through my doctor. Still cheaper than $600 though.

I didn't use coupons or prepaid stuff like on Groupons like other reviews. But then again, I didn't do Lasik so my review is only for the PRK. Highly recommended!!

I like many people saw/ heard the ads on TV and radio. Well I called made an appointment, went in and had a (Free) thorough eye exam and was told I was a good candidate for Lasik and got a quote. I waited three weeks or so and once again TV and radio ads said LEC was having a "Half Price sale" for the month of May. I was also told to get the "Half Off" I would have to pay in full. It was so easy! The ladies and men in both the Valencia and Encino offices were great! I made an appointment. The day of surgery was right on time. No surprises, just easy, no pain, and little discomfort and fast! The surgeon was great, the office had great music playing and everything was totally professional. I recommend LASIK . I still have to wear readers but what a clear difference! Don't wait years like I did. Get an exam, you have nothing to lose!

I got the PRK surgery on both eyes 4 week ago and I'm glad I decided to wait this long before writing this review!! The recovery from the surgery for me was difficult, scary, frustrating, painful and uncomfortable. For four days I could not open my eyes for more than a few seconds I called and spoke to the on call doctor several times and visited the offices almost daily, they were absolutely great and comforting to me reassuring me that everything I was going through was normal as I was healing well!!!! Now a month later and getting better and clearer vision by the day I'm absolutely HAPPY I did this!!!! I recommend this place they are great mannered and professional!!!! I also referred my sister and she has her surgery in two weeks!!
