I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Geffen! It had been years since I had an eye exam and my anxiety was high. The office staff was so kind and polite and made the experience so easy from the moment I walked in. Dr. Geffen was terrific in explaining what he was doing and why so that I felt more comfortable. He was professional and personable the whole time. The staff was great when it came to picking frames as well. I didn’t feel pressured and they allowed me to take my time, even special ordering a color that they didn’t have in the office at no additional cost to me so that I could try them on. I would highly recommend Gordon-Weiss-Schanzlin Vision Institute.

Dr. Gordon and his team were fantastic. I went in for LASIK corrective surgery for Astigmatism after hearing raving reviews about his office from a friend. I enjoyed my experience, all the doctors were kind and informative. They made my experience as comfortable and even enjoyable as I could hope for. Dr. Gordon called after a few hours to check on me. I was amazed how quickly I regained vision, I was able to drive the next day to the follow up appointment. If you are thinking about having eye surgery, this is the place to do it!

It's been almost a year now and I could not be happier with the results of my PRK procedure. Dr Michael Gordon was friendly, attentive, and professional. I just went in for my yearly eye check up and was told that my right eye is 20/20 with my left at 20/25. My optometrist commented that my eyes had absolutely no hazing and that he did an amazing job! I can't thank him enough for the gift that he has given me. I no longer have to wake up, put in contacts or glasses on. I also dont have to remember to take my contacts out before bed either. One note that may go without saying... ALWAYS do what your doctor says. I went home feeling wonderful (combo of numbing drops and drugs prescribed). I should have taken the pain killers that they prescribed to me before I went to bed. That first night was extremely painful. Bottom line... even if you feel alright... TAKE THE PAIN KILLERS!

Being a Pilot for a major airline, and flying the 747 around the World makes My Vision one of My Top Priorities ! Over the past 15 Months I have methodically researched many Doctors, Procedures, Laser Types, and also have completed many Eye Tests before making My Wise Decision. Dr. Schallhorn is a true Top Gun both in Jets and with Eye surgery ! Dr. Brown from the very beginning (12 months) has answered All of My emails in such a manner that often felt like a was communicating with a Candid and caring Friend... I owe Him Credit for keeping My Compass on the Correct heading during My decision ! In Life we all know the importance and the power of synergy people can have when They feel passionate about their profession, and the Team they are On ! This was My experience each time at GWS Vision when Julio Gonzalez, Sherri Havery, and Sonya Bergan took personal care of Me ! Each Time they made Me feel like I was the only Patient on Their List ! Thanksss Thomas Mein

At 60 years of age, referrals and comfort level are the essential components for my consumer experience.. I received both from Gordon Weiss Schanzlin Institute! The consultation was informative, thorough and concise. On the day of the procedure, starting with the pre-op to the completion of the actual procedure, it met and exceeded all of my expectations in terms of time, efficiency and professionalism. From start to finish in less than one hour....5 hours later I was in my favorite chair watching an NBA basketball game, without glasses! My only regret? Not having done it sooner!!

Dr. Michael Gordon performed both my husband's PRK surgery and my LASIK surgery. Great office, clean, friendly, informative, very happy all around! Everyone I know in my area brings up this office first as well before I even mention where I went for surgery.

WHO LEFT THE BARN...INVISIBLE??

Check out this ‘Invisible Barn’ created by New York design practice STPMJ. Made of wood and sheeted with mirror film, the barn becomes one with nature, reflecting the surrounding birch trees, blue sky, and signs of the changing seasons!

Looking COOL is just one excellent reason to wear sunglasses.

Over time, exposure to UV light can lead to macular degeneration as well as accelerating the formation of cataracts. Put those shades on!
