First let me say I have been thinking about getting this eye surgery for over 10 years. But I was always too afraid because I know some people from Florida(where I use to live before my company transfered me to NYC last year) who complained of halos. The a guy from my office...more went to Dr. Bonnani at Gotham Lasik and kept telling me he has no halos problems and never did have any type of problem after his lasik eye surgery. I am so glad I listened to him and went in for my free consultation to meet Dr. Bonnani. First let me say he is just the nicest guy who takes the time you need to answer all of your questions and address any concerns you might have. The first thing I asked was what was the situation with the news reporting on some people having all of these problems after their lasik surgery around the country. He explained to me that not everyone is a good candidate for lasik laser vision correction. He himself has turned down hundreds of people who wanted him to operate on them for the surgery. He gave me the eye exam which immediately shows him if I am a good candidate for lasik or not. I was! He explained that unfortunately some doctors will operate on anyone to make a quick buck even if the person isn't a good candidate for lasik surgery and these people naturally are going to have problems. But that is the whole point of the eye exam in the first place. Like everything else in medicine and considering having any type of surgery it comes down to trust. You need to trust in your doctor bottom line. I was referred in by someone I trust from where I work but I also read a lot of reviews on Dr. Bonnani and he is actually known as the doctor that other doctors trust to go get their own eye surgery. That to me is trust! So long story short I got it done and I have no halos and no problems what so ever! Now I just ask myself what the hell was I waiting for all these years wearing my pain-in-the-you-know-where contacts? Don't take my word for it go meet Dr. Bonnani for yourself and you'll know immediately you made the right choice after your free consultation with him.view less
i used to ware sunglasses all the time, day, and night. one day i decided to do something about the way i looked. so i went to the eye & ear hospital on 14th street new york city. they were getting ready to set me up for an appointment to remove my eye. as i went to sign...more to paperwork, a doctor walk in the room, and said why don't you send her to see if she can get a prosthetic eye. so they gave me the address, and a phone number. i went to MAGER & GOUGELMAN INC. ARTF EYES. it was a blessing. it's been at least 10 years now. i don't have to hide behind sunglasses any more. i look as if i can see out of both my eyes. people that don't know me, can't tell. the people that know me before my new look. ask my which eye is it. thank you MAGER & GOUGELMAN. for chaging my life... view less
The experience was efficient and well ordered. The staff was polite and extremely helpful. I had no problems following the surgery and was very pleased. Will return if ever necessary.
