Great surgeon and great staff. Do your research, Dr. Herschel is more than just a LASIK surgeon. He is certified and specializes in all areas of eye surgery so have peace of mind that you are getting one of the best. They use current technology and machines. More so, if your eyes aren’t ready for surgery he has no problem delaying 1-2 weeks until they are 100% good-to-go. He will not risk your health for the sake of money.Dave T.
Dr. Herschel is a PHENOMENAL doctor and surgeon! I have been wearing glasses since elementary school, and I have knowingly tortured my eyes with contact lenses since middle school. During my initial consultation, I love that Dr. Herschel personally took the time to show me pictures and educate me about my eyes in much more detail than ever before by any other eye doctor. By the time my initial exam was completed, I felt fully confident that I was in the hands of a true professional. I have to also give a ton of credit to his amazing staff that makes the office run so smoothly. Dawn and Norma made me feel confident and comfortable during the whole process. After my procedure, I went from -5.00 glasses to 20/15 vision in both eyes! I cannot be thankful enough for the hard work and the expertise of this amazing team. I would recommend this practice to every friend, family member, and casual acquaintance that is considering vision correction.RianeMary Roberts
Best thing I ever did! I went on 6 different consults and this place was the first one that actually listened to my concerns. I went to another “LASIK” center first and they were ready to schedule me for the very next day, I didn’t really care for their “sales” pitch, it sounded like she was talking from a script. I had a consult with Dr. Herschel and he told me I had dry eyes (Which I already knew, but no one else had mentioned) He told me about a better procedure called Visian ICL, it was more expensive but better for my situation, so I booked it right there on the spot. 3 weeks later I had the surgery and the very next day I was 20-20 (not sure if that is how you write it!) This was the best decision I ever made, I just wish I would have found him sooner! Thanks, Dr. Herschel! Please if you are considering LASIK go to HERSCHEL LASIK, they are by far the most educated and well-equipped center I visited and they are the ONLY ones who didn’t push me to book surgery the same day (although I did!)Matt Cox
Before I decided to get vision correction surgery, I really did my homework because these are my eyes we’re talking about and I wasn’t about to go cheap on something so important to my life and well being. I did a lot of research on the best-reviewed and best-rated ophthalmologists in the Orlando area and Dr. Herschel kept coming up with really strong and consistent reviews. I liked that a lot of the reviews stated that he was a perfectionist and would even postpone surgery if something seemed off, even if it was right before. Still, I picked my top three and did a consultation with each of them, and while they were all good, I was really impressed with Dr. Herschel and the rest of the staff at Herschel LASIK!
It’s been 3-months now and after getting the ICL procedure, I’ve gone from having a prescription of -6 in both eyes to better-than-perfect 20/15 vision in both eyes! It’s incredible and so worth every penny! It’s been incredible going to the beach, the pool, the gym, running, and just being all-around active without having to hassle with glasses or contacts! If you’re on the fence about it, do it. It’s so worth it!
One last thing, the staff at Herschel LASIK is phenomenal. They’ve taken care of me from the beginning, making sure that I understood everything and helping me make the best decision for my surgery. They’re really accommodating, friendly, and all-around wonderful. I mean, even after the surgery with my post-op visits, I feel like I’m part of the family there. Seriously, shout out to Dr. Herschel, Dawn, Maria, and the rest of the staff at Herschel LASIK. Ya’ll are awesome ^_^Omar Infante-Ramos
Dr. Herschel is fantastic! He was able to fix my dry eye problem before surgery, whereas, other LASIK facilities in Orlando wanted to rush me into surgery as quickly as possible. With Herschel LASIK you meet with the actual surgeon who also specializes in corneas during your free consultation. He made sure my corneas were as healthy as they can be before going on with surgery because he did not want me to end up with severe dry eyes after surgery. My eyes were so dry before going to him that I could not even handle a contact in my eyes for more than 2 hours before they had to be taken out because they were shriveled up.
There are cheaper options around but the quality of care is the most important part. I shopped around and didn’t find the level of care offered by Herschel at other LASIK facilities nearby. Some places you do not even see the surgeon until the day that you go in for surgery. Meeting Herschel from the start really set me at ease in this whole process and he even called a few hours after surgery to check on me.Nick
From the very first appointment, I knew this office was different. Everything is so personal and they know everyone when they come in the door. I couldn’t be more happy with the care and attention I received from Dr. Herschel and his wonderful staff. From the thorough examinations to making sure I knew what was going to happen and what to expect, to the Dr. making sure that he was available and just a phone call away if needed. I would recommend anyone looking to have this surgery done to go here. Thanks so much for everything! You guys rock!Tara Henderson
Amazing LASIK experience from start to finish! Incredible staff, office, and surgeon! I will be highly recommending to all of my friends and family!Daniel Sturtz
I have had an INCREDIBLE experience with Herschel LASIK, from the first moment I walked in for my initial consultation through all of the post-op check-ups I’ve had since my procedure.
Dr. Herschel and his staff are informative and compassionate. They take the time to answer every possible question you might have, whether in person (in the lounge-style office) or by e-mail or phone. They make a point to remember your name and greet you with enthusiasm when you walk in – it’s like stopping by a friend’s house when you come in for an appointment.
LASIK is a big life change, and as comforting and relaxing as they make the environment in the office, they don’t take it lightly either – I was embarrassed that on the day of my surgery that I was scared, even after all they’d done to reassure me… so Angela held my hand through the whole procedure. Being able to see without glasses or contacts for the first time in 20 years is amazing – like suddenly having HD after a lifetime of grainy pixelated TV – but for me, the highlight of the experience was that one simple act of kindness that made a BIG difference.
I am so glad I chose Herschel LASIK, and I can’t imagine having gone anywhere else.Jessica Lyn Hoffman
TL;DR – Best decision I’ve made, both getting LASIK and choosing Herschel LASIK.
Dr. Herschel and his team were amazing. As someone that deals with vasovagal issues, I delayed LASIK for quite some time. After meeting with Dr. Herschel the first time, I knew I wanted him to perform the procedure.
He meets with each patient personally, and tailors your procedure to your eyes. As someone who can also be a bit OCD, I was pleased by the level of detail he took, the time he spent explaining each portion of my eye and how it would impact the surgery, and even took digital pictures of my eye and eyelids to show me what he meant.
The procedure itself was actually very simple and painless. The aftercare was great, and now, 9 months later, I’m still testing between 20/15 and 20/10.
I interviewed several facilities, and Dr. Herschel really did stand out, both in his personal attention and in his simply being there to see me each visit. If you’re reading this and have looked into other centers, you’ll likely have experienced a consultation that included everything EXCEPT the doctor performing the surgery (because they were at a different office perhaps). This is not the case with Herschel LASIK.
Again, thank you, Dr. Herschel and team!Kevin B.
Dr. Herschel and the team not only met my expectations but exceeded them. From the initial consultation to post-LASIK surgery everything has been top-notch.
First impressions count. When walking in the door you enter into a comfortable, upscale, living room-esque office where you are greeted and offered a beverage. The first consultation you meet with Dr. Herschel and he takes the time to answer all your questions and there is no rushed feeling. Each subsequent visit with his team-leading up to surgery day was just as nice.
Importantly, you can tell everyone in the office has a genuine sense of care for you. You do not feel like a number or just the next patient in and out the door. Not only did Dr. Herschel call me after surgery to check up, Dawn from the office followed up over the weekend and the following week as well.
I write very few reviews and only do so when warranted. As consumers, we have dozens of options for LASIK here in Orlando. However, I’m 100% satisfied that I chose the best. I would trust and recommend Dr. Herschel to all of my friends and family.Justin R.
Amazing Surgeon and staff. Dr. Herschel is very informative and really cares about his patients. I would recommend everyone to see him.Andrew Stephens
This is by far the greatest Doctor that I’ve ever used. I brought my daughter in for a LASIK consultation. We had the last appointment of the day on a Friday afternoon. I’m sure he and his staff were wanting to get home for the weekend. But, he realized my daughter had an eye issue that needed to be treated. He gave us at least an hour and explained detail by detail the treatment that she needed to cure her eye problem. He gave us samples of everything we needed for her treatment. He and his staff were beyond experts. The LASIK may cost a little bit more here, but Dr. Herschel’s equipment is the most advanced in the LASIK field. You pay for what you get. He is worth every penny. Also thank you to Dawn for your thoroughness and the time you gave my daughter. I without hesitation recommend Dr. Herschel.Robbi L.
Dr. Herschel is by far one of the best doctors I have come across in years! I honestly have to say he cares and is very cautious. His staff makes you feel like you are with family rather than in a doctor’s office. This doctor has bedside manners. My eyes are healing great and I feel confident in Dr. Herschel’s work. I went to visit 3 LASIK consultations at 3 different offices. I am so glad I went to Dr. Herschel. You don’t find this kind of doctor very often nowadays. He takes his time with everyone. My eyes thank me for choosing him and if you are thinking about LASIK your eyes will thank you too if you choose Dr. Herschel!Bpink Pink
I could not be happier with my LASIK surgery results and the whole experience at Herschel LASIK. I have been in the medical industry my whole life and the service, technology, and professionalism was second to none. My eyesight is something I didn’t want to take any chances with so I went to Dr. Herschel who is a corneal specialist who does LASIK (an extremely rare find). He personally showed me every test result and explained everything to me . You are dealing with the surgeon himself when being consulted and informed about LASIK surgery . His staff is amazing. Dawn helped me feel comfortable and held my hand during the procedure (which was a breeze ) . I normally am a very hyper person but during the day of surgery I was totally relaxed and super excited to be getting rid of my glasses and contacts! I now see better than I ever did with contacts or glasses! I highly recommend Herschel LASIK!Sara Grace Pancurak
Every single part of Herschel LASIK is exceptional. From Dr. Herschel himself to Dawn, Brittany, Norma, and Mckayla, they are all incredible people and made this process so simple and pleasant. My dad even went as far as saying in his 25-year pharmaceutical sales career, it is one of the most impressive offices he has ever been around. Surgery day is such a breeze(he has all state of the art equipment). Everyone makes you feel so comfortable and afterwords monitor you so closely. Within the next couple of days, I had an almost perfect vision! To top it all off, Dr. Herschel was a tiny bit late on surgery day due to an EMERGENCY corneal transplant surgery. He felt so bad for being late that he bought me a gift card! At every single step of the process, they go above and beyond what is required… All around incredible experience! I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Herschel to anyone interested in LASIK!Tyler B.
Where to begin… I am a Commercial Pilot and I was referred to Dr. Herschel by one of my colleagues who had nothing but great things to say about her experience with Herschel LASIK. I was glad to have her recommendation because I searched the Central Florida area tirelessly to find the right doctor that I felt comfortable with and I just wasn’t having that feeling with the other doctors that I met with. Most of the places felt like LASIK factories where you were just part of an assembly line. You will know just by walking into Herschel LASIK, that you are going to receive a much more personal experience. Also knowing that I would need the Federal Aviation Administration to sign off on the procedure before I would be allowed to return to the cockpit, made my decision that much more important. I needed a doctor I knew I could work with.
Just as I am sure you are nervous, I was too. I watched countless youtube videos of the LASIK procedure and that was almost enough to make me not want to do it. Try not to waste your time freaking out, because there is nothing to freak out about. Dr. Herschel and his staff did a superb job explaining the entire process to me before and even during the procedure so I knew exactly what to expect at all times. There were no surprises.
I consider myself somewhat of a special case, which is why I feel the absolute need to write this review. I had a really bad vision before getting LASIK and let’s just say that I wore my contacts much longer than I should have. My eyes just weren’t in great shape. Where most offices would just have you pull your number in the assembly line, Dr. Herschel didn’t do that. He wanted to make sure we had my eyes in good health before doing the procedure. This assured me that my recovery was painless. Healthy eyes = great recovery! Dr. Herschel has your best interest in mind first and foremost, unlike some of the other places around town that just want your money.
There really isn’t anything to the procedure so I will leave that part up to the professionals to explain to you, but here is why I really recommend Doctor Herschel. It was after I recovered from my procedure I was going back for periodic check-ups when Dr. Herschel noticed that my eyes were getting very bloodshot. He assured me that my eyes were fine, but he was concerned that I had an underlying health condition that were making my eyes turn red. He put me in contact with a very well known Rheumatologist in the Orlando area and told me that I might be suffering from some type of autoimmune disorder. Wouldn’t you know it, the stars all started to align and I began connecting the dots. I was hospitalized a few months after my LASIK procedure with a viral infection and the virus literally crippled me. I eventually recovered (so I thought), but I was having trouble getting approval from the FAA to let me fly again after being hospitalized from the virus. My rheumatologist found that my body was suffering from pretty severe Rheumatoid Arthritis and Ankylosing Spondilitis. This sounds horrible, but honestly, it was music to my ears! With the right treatment from my rheumatologist, my pain subsided and wouldn’t you know it, the redness in my eyes began to go away. So it goes without saying that I owe it to Dr. Herschel, not only for giving me the great gift of ditching my glasses and contacts after 16 years but because of him I was able to get to the bottom of a very serious condition that was literally ruining my career and quality of life.
After having been out of work for almost a year, I am happy to say that I am returning skyward as of tomorrow. This time with a new pair of eyes and I can’t wait!
I hope you find this review helpful and trust me when I say that Dr. Herschel is an outstanding Ophthalmology. He isn’t just any old doctor that performs LASIK Surgery, but he is a key tool for McGruder Eye Institute and has extensive experience with LASIK, cataract and other special cases just like mine.Dan Springer
Dr. Herschel has an impeccable bedside manner. He is meticulous and will delay your procedure to ensure that your eyes are healthy enough to recover from surgery.
As a contact wearer for 20 years my eyes were in bad shape and not very healthy. Dr. Herschel put me on a 2-week program to get my eyes on good shape for the LASIK procedure. As a result, my recovery time was about 24-48 hours. I had no glare or haziness and my night vision is perfect. Unlike other places, this is HIS practice and is not just a doctor mill that has doctors in and out one day to the next who don’t have to care about reputation.
His practice is a very comfortable and welcoming place. His staff are patient and even let me hold her hand during the procedure!
I can’t say enough about this place and am so happy I shopped around and went to various places because it helped me figure out that this place is the best place to have my procedure done.Nadia Y.
I was very nervous about having anything touching my eyes. I had several visits to Dr. Herschel because my eyes were very dry. At one point I had my LASIK scheduled but when the Dr checked my eyes the day before they were too dry. He sat me down and talked to me like family, recommending I continue to use eye drops until my eyes are moist enough to get the best results. Dr Herschel didn’t charge me for all my pre-visits as most doctors would. About a month later I had the surgery-mono vision. I can now see 20/15 and I love it. Senior Ophthalmic Tech Dawn is also fantastic and treated me like family.Suzanne Clouchette
Dr. Herschel and his staff are all absolutely WONDERFUL! Highly recommend! They offer amazing service with a smile – no matter how many visits or questions you may have 🙂Jenni Penni
Fantastic. The office staff (especially Angela) are consistently incredible. They go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and not just like another statistic.
I had LASIK elsewhere some 14 years ago–and was no longer seeing great (astigmatism and some residual or reoccurring myopia and dry eyes). Herschel’s office didn’t pressure me. At very little cost, they spent many months trying to help me heal my dry eyes to determine if I would be happy w/ my vision resolving that one issue– and then, when I still wasn’t, they helped me prepare months in advance for PRK surgery…
Throughout the follow-up process, they provided me w/ a seemingly endless supply of pricey drops at no extra charge– and, when I had a minor complication early on, they had me come in every single day for monitoring– all included in the surgery price. Today, 2 months later, I read the 20/15 line w/ each eye– just fine–and they continue to be wonderful– and their office ROCKS! They even gave me an in-person card congratulating me on my recent wedding. I would recommend the low-pressure services of Herschel LASIK to anyone– They are hospitable, extremely competent, and will not operate until they feel everything is perfect.A. Greenstein
I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this office. I was initially very anxious about having surgery on my eyes, but Dr. Herschel and the team were outstanding. They answered all of my questions and helped to ease my fears. Dr. Herschel is a perfectionist! He took close-up photos of my eyes to explain certain anatomical features. I was placed on eye drops prior to my treatment to help decrease the likeliness of dry eyes after the surgery. I even returned to the office several times before my surgery to ensure that I was consistently getting the same results when “reading the eye test”. The surgery was also easier than I expected. There was no pain and minimal discomfort. My vision was immediately improved and by the next day, I began to appreciate what a difference this had made in my life. I have been wearing glasses since I was a child and I’m finally able to open my eyes and see without needing glasses or contacts. I would recommend this surgery to anyone and my only wish is that I had done it sooner! I highly recommend Dr. Herschel and his excellent team.Alma C.
Great staff! Dr. Herschel is patient, thorough, and takes time to explain all available options. Takes extra time from his personal time to check in on his patients! Highly recommend!Mary Ware
Dr. Herschel and his staff are Knowledgeable, Caring and Amazing! I went to several other LASIK Centers before making my final decision. From your first phone call to set up your consultation-Norma is a wealth of knowledge, preparing you for your consultation. I met with Dr. Herschel the same day as my consult, not a nurse, assistant or brochure letting you know this is your doctor. Dr. Herschel is FANTASTIC. He will answer all questions, doubts, concerns you may have without rushing you out and even gives you his personal cell if you have any questions, which I did! I had the dry eye treatment and was at a store at 8 pm not sure which drops to purchase and called Dr. Herschel and he answered!! My procedure took less than twelve minutes and I have perfect 20/20 vision! Thank You, Dr. Herschel and staff!Karen Guerrero
I am so happy to have had Dr. Herschel and his team perform LASIK on me. My husband, who had it done by them 10 years ago (and are still perfect), referred me to him. From the first moment I walked in, everyone was so nice to me. There is never more than a 2 min wait for anything. It is so clean and friendly. And the whole team is there for you every step of the way. Dawn even held my hand during the procedure because my anxiety kicked in. They even called to check on me that night and the next morning after the procedure to make sure I was ok. Not many places in the whole country have a bedside manner like they do. I would highly recommend Dr. Herschel and his team to anyone needing their eyes done. I always say go to the best and THEY ARE THE BEST!!!!!Nakoma D.
My experience with Herschel LASIK has been not only first-class every step of the way but it has been simply amazing. I can now see better than I ever could even with glasses or contacts! After speaking with other people that went to Hershel LASIK, after going to other consults, I felt completely comfortable & excited for surgery day. Everything is explained every step of the way. I was amazed that I was able to watch TV that evening and see without my glasses. Dr. Hershel is a corneal specialist which is very important to consider when picking a doctor for LASIK surgery for your eyes. He is the one you speak to at the consult and he also explains everything to you. His staff is very friendly, welcoming, and treat you like the important patient that you are. The office is very comfortable, clean, and modern. Dawn was so helpful in scheduling my procedure and making sure I was comfortable the whole time. She was there for each of my appointments and checking in on me. Brittany is among the friendly welcoming faces you see when entering the office. Jen and Mcala were also super nice. The whole staff was just great to me and my family. Dr. Hershel makes himself & staff available to his patients so they can text or call if they have any questions or concerns after the procedure. Appointments based on your personal schedule are also made. Very accommodating to the busy and working adult. They put you first! I highly recommend Dr. Hershel if you are considering LASIK surgery.Sara G.
Dr. Herschel and his staff were amazing! They all are very educated in this field and it showed. I am thankful to have found this office. They treated me like a human with feelings, not just a number or paycheck. I was treated like a patient. The establishment was extremely clean, the staff took every measure to keep everything clean. I was very pleased to see that everyone in that office was highly educated and experienced in that field. And when I say everyone I mean from the one who answers the phone, to the one who does the finances, to the one who checks your eyes. Thank you to Dr. Herschel and his staff for taking care of my eyes, working with my disability, and making me feel like I come first. I would recommend your office to anyone. Thanks again.Erika Cheney
Dr. Herschel and his team were exceptional! I got LASIK done 2 weeks ago and am already seeing 20/15! I was very nervous about getting LASIK especially since I had some prior eye complications. Dr. Herschel requested for all my old eye records and examined them thoroughly to make sure I was still a good candidate for LASIK. Dr. Herschel reassured me that my prior complications with my eyes would not affect my LASIK surgery which made me very relieved.
The procedure itself went great! After a few hours after I could already see! Dr. Herschel gave me his personal cell phone just in case I needed to call if there was an emergency.
Dr. Herschel and his team genuinely care for you, which is why I chose Herschel LASIK. I’m so glad I chose Dr. Herschel and would 100% recommend him to anyone who wants to get LASIK!Marci K.
Amazing people. Customer service at its finest Thank you!Joe Jones
I spend 3 months looking for a LASIK surgeon but was not confident in any options I came across until Herschel LASIK was recommended.
From the time I first made my consultation appointment, to after my surgery I was treated with world-class service and respect. The experience & service at Herschel LASIK top private jet travel and 5-star European hotels.
Dr. Herschel personally went over my before eye conditions, treatment plan, and answered all my questions. Dr. Herschel and his staff are highly educated and experienced in eye correction surgery.
It was very comfortable and I am so happy with my results. I would recommend Herschel LASIK to my loved ones, friends, and anyone else.Adam T.
What an amazing staff, along with an amazing doctor. Everyone is so nice, informative, caring and always have your best interest at heart. They take the time to answer all your questions. It’s a beautifully decorated office to match the beautiful staff who work there. I wish I did this sooner, loving life without glasses at 48Jeffrey Dinsmore
Over the years I had gone to a few LASIK offices and never felt confident in the procedure or the doctor until I was recommended to see Dr. Herschel. First impressions are lasting and each staff person is top-notch, Dr. Herschel is thorough and his first priority is the health of your eyes and not surgery. Prior, during and after the surgery, you are treated like an old friend. Each staff member on Dr. Herschel’s team is amazing!Tara S.
I started having eye issues almost a year ago. I’d been wearing contact lenses for 12+ hours a day for probably 15 years, and my eyes started itching like crazy at night. I’d wake up in the middle of the night to bloodshot eyes, and I did not know why. To make a long story shorter, I suffered from giant papillary conjunctivitis, contact lens intolerance, and eventually, dry eyes. I tried several different contact lens brands, but my eyes weren’t having it. My local eye doctors seemed to have reached an endpoint on what they could do for me, so I started considering LASIK. Dr. Herschel had awesome reviews on multiple sites, so I set up a consultation. He was able to get my eyes into much better shape and helped me get my dry eye symptoms under control. He only cleared me for surgery once he felt that my eyes were healthy enough to do so. I recently underwent LASIK surgery, and so far I’m very happy with the results. I felt like I could see 20/20 the first day (going from about a -3.25 prescription). My post-op confirmed my eyesight was 20/20. I’ve had a great experience with Herschel LASIK. The environment, the staff (special thanks to Ken, McKayla, and Norma for their TLC), and of course Dr. Herschel are all awesome. Thank you so much 🙂Melissa Peacock
I just got my LASIK surgery yesterday and it’s already the best money I have ever spent. The procedure was super quick and painless. I had very bad eyes before this and even though I’m still healing it’s so amazing how well I can see now.
The staff is awesome and helpful, and Dr. Herschel is great. He takes the time to explain everything and genuinely seems to care about his patients. He explains everything in a way that’s not condescending (which I appreciate because I have a background in biology, including anatomy/physiology etc.), which is just one other thing that sets him apart from so many other doctors nowadays who treat you like an idiot or just another paycheck.
I would definitely recommend him to anyone.Casey Herderman
Herschel LASIK is the place to go. Dr. Herschel is as experienced as they come. His staff takes care of you the minute you walk in the door. I went in with confidence in my decision to get LASIK surgery with Herschel LASIK. He doesn’t try to get your business with discounts and “deals.” He lays out the facts of surgery and the equipment he uses and lets you the customer make the decision with no pressure to choose him. I highly recommend Dr. Herschel #ihave20-15visionZach Belvin
After consultations at other doctors’ offices I chose Herschel LASIK bc of the detail that Dr. Herschel gives to make sure you get the most out of your vision. I am so glad I chose Herschel LASIK and am pleased with the results. It’s amazing to see without glasses or contacts. The financing was an easy process as well.Meredith Harris
I am two days post-op from the CXL procedure. Dr. Herschel is AMAZING! The staff is just as great! They listen to me and my concerns or questions to make sure I am accommodated for everything and anything. I am so grateful to have a doctor who sees light at the end of the tunnel with me! Thank you Herschel LASIK Team!Melanie Isom
Incredible staff and Dr. Herschel is a true professional that really cares about his patients! My LASIK procedure was pleasant and very easy. Highly recommended!Julio Rivera
Amazing doctor and staff! I definitely recommend this team for their professionalism and caring! They made me feel at ease the whole time.Elisabeth Solomon-Mullin
The very BEST in the Industry. It’s been less than 24 hours and I already can see what I’ve been missing all my life. Thank you to an amazing Team over at Herschel LASIK. ♡Elisabeth Solomon-Mullin
Great doctor and staff. Mindful and helpful. I did the surgery in August 2016, feels great till now (other than some dryness). Highly recommend. (March 2017)
After almost 1.5 years after the surgery, I feel it’s one of the greatest decisions I’ve made about myself. Good vision is really worth it. (January 2018)Fang Fang
More Patient Testimonials
“Dr. Herschel is the best doctor I have ever been to. The thought of LASIK surgery scared me at first, but Dr. Herschel reassured me that everything would be okay and it was. The surgery was quick with no pain at all. I laid down under the machine unable to see with glasses and a few seconds later I saw perfectly and the surgery was over. It was amazing. What impressed me most is how Dr. Herschel cares and follows up. He is there for you with any questions or anything you need after surgery. As I said, he is the best doctor I have had. I could not be happier with the success of the surgery. My vision actually is better than 20/20 now. I would highly recommend Dr. Herschel to anyone looking to get LASIK surgery”Brian D.
“Excellent experience! I am so happy with the result of my LASIK procedure. Dr. Herschel and his team are wonderful to work with and truly care about their patients. What I most appreciated about the experience was the thorough analysis Dr. Herschel and his team performed in preparation for the procedure. Since I was having mono-vision LASIK Dr. Herschel encouraged me to try the correction first with contacts to ensure that I was a good candidate. We also did pre-treatments for dry eyes. Through all of the prep work, I never felt pressure to have the procedure done and I felt that Dr.Herschel’s goal was to provide me with the best vision possible even if it meant I was not a candidate for LASIK. Thank you, Dr. Herschel for giving me the best vision in my life!”Sue F.
“I’ve worn glasses since the 4th grade and graduated to contact lenses in high school. While the contacts made playing sports easier, there was always the risk of losing one or getting something behind the lens and scratching my eye. My decision to have LASIK surgery has been one of the most freeing of my life. Not having to worry about contacts, cases, solution, etc. when traveling has been great, but also just the feeling of waking up and being able to see has been a great experience. For an avid outdoorsman, like myself, it’s wonderful not worrying about contacts or glasses when camping, kayaking, or fishing. Now, instead of making sure to have a spare pair of contacts, I simply wake up and enjoy my day and activities. Dr. Herschel and everyone at Herschel LASIK made this procedure as easy and comfortable as I can imagine. Dr. Herschel’s attention to detail and genuine concern for my case put my mind at ease and soothed my nerves throughout the procedure. LASIK has truly changed my life and I thank Dr. Herschel and everyone at Herschel LASIK for their help in making my life easier and more enjoyable.”Lee F.
“From the first time I came in for my free consultation, every member of the staff were so welcoming, friendly, and helpful. They walked me through every step of the process and gave me such peace of mind about everything. I really liked that Dr. Herschel was the one doctor I saw when discussing options, preparing me, performing the surgery and doing all the follow-ups. He even gave me his number to call at any time if needed, which meant a lot. It was great knowing all the staff cared about me and really took care of me every step of the way. Also, having vision ROCKS! There is no price I could put on this (though if necessary, the price I paid was so reasonable).”Sarah J.
“My husband and I are both patients at Herschel LASIK and could not be happier. We are both in the medical field and chose Dr. Herschel based on his reputation of being “the best of the best”. The doctor and his staff make you feel completely at ease and not like an assembly line that competitors are known for. We cannot thank them enough for doing an amazing job on the procedures and follow-up.”Julia B.
“I have worn glasses for 54 years and without a doubt, this is been the most awesomely fabulous experience of my vision life. I felt very comfortable and cared for throughout the entire process. Dr. Herschel is off-the-charts awesome. He talked me through the entire procedure before and during the operation, alleviating any anxiety. I would do it again in a heartbeat.”Karen B.
“I had the most wonderful experience here. The staff was so nice, answered all my questions, and definitely put my wellbeing first. I felt like I was their only patient and that they never rushed my visits. I would happily continue to recommend them to everyone. Great experience!”Bjorg V.
“At first I was anxious when I came in for the consultation. This feeling was overwhelming until the staff at Herschel LASIK provided the best care possible. With their support and informative guidance, I was confident that they would give the best possible service. They treat you like a person and actually get to know you. Their scheduling is very flexible for working adults and full time students like me. I recommend Herschel LASIK to everyone who wants the best for their vision. After 18 years of glasses, I am incredibly thankful for this gift of sight.”Christian R.
“I have had a great experience with Herschel LASIK from the beginning to the end. Prior to coming to Herschel LASIK I visited several other practices in the Orlando area. However, Herschel LASIK clearly stood out among the others with their kindness, patience, willingness to help and explain every detail I had questions about. They immediately made me feel comfortable and at ease. They made the whole experience very pleasant. Thank you!”Janna S.
“After waiting a bit after my husband’s LASIK surgery I finally went for a consultation and was put at ease about proceeding. Thank goodness! It’s been a few months now and I only wish I had done it sooner. Following my procedure, I went on vacation in California and didn’t have to worry about packing enough contacts and glasses and we were able to go snowboarding without worrying about the contacts drying up or having to somehow wear glasses down the mountain. The views of the California coast were perfect! I could see the sea lions in the distance playing in the water and the sand and the view of San Francisco from the top of the city were magnificent. All of this making me even more grateful than I already was! What made this experience even better was the professionalism and kindness from the staff and Dr. Herschel. I would and have highly recommended Herschel LASIK!”Jennifer L.
“Very smooth. Everyone was very friendly and knowledgeable. I was thoroughly prepared for every step of the process. Dr. Herschel is very patient and kept me informed on every step of the actual procedure. Day 2 and I can see! I could not see anything without my glasses before this. It’s amazing!”Kristen R.
“Up to a few months ago, glasses were a permanent part of the way I looked. I had to try contacts, but it seemed like everything that could go wrong with contacts went wrong. I realized that five years of wearing them that I had been putting them inside out. The lady who first showed me how to wear them didn’t realize she had shown me the wrong way to put them in my eyes. Five years if wearing them inside out totally reshaped my eye, and I had trouble with contacts ever since. When I got engaged to my fiancé Steve, I realized that I did not want to walk down the aisle on one of the biggest days of my life with either red eye from dry contacts or glasses hiding my face. I did a lot of research to find Herschel LASIK. Based on my own experience, I’d recommend Dr. Kelly to anyone. He explained everything to me in detail before the day of LASIK. He made me feel completely at ease with the whole process, including the day of surgery. He walked me through everything step by step as he worked on my eyes. The whole process took at total of fifteen minutes. Fifteen minutes and my vision was forever corrected. People ask me what the best part of having LASIK is, and I tell them that everything is completely wonderful. The best part is that I no longer have to wonder what time it is when I wake up in the middle of the night, I can see my clock with no problem. And to me, that is absolutely amazing”Jennifer A.
“My experience at Herschel LASIK was excellent. From my first visit which was the consultation with Dr. Herschel, to my post op follow up. I felt all of my questions were thoroughly answered. Dr. Herschel is very personable, communicative, and patient oriented. He cared more about the health of my eye rather than just doing a LASIK procedure. I highly recommend Dr. Herschel and his staff”Noopur R.
“Having the ICL procedure has been a life changing experience. Not only is my life easier now that I do not have to maintain a pair of glasses, but it is more fulfilling. My confidence and quality of life have improved in ways I cannot explain. The only way for me to truly express what Dr. Herschel and his team has done for me would be to tell you how my mom reacted. I had glasses for as long as I can remember and she believes I have never had 20/20 vision. One day while talking about my eyes, she started crying with joy. This procedure not only changed my life, but hers as well. Thank you guys so much for everything.”Tanesh M.
“My experience at Herschel LASIK has been a first class experience. The level of professionalism and customer service from the initial screening through the follow-up has been exemplary. If I had another set of eyes to get fixed, I’d happily take them to Herschel LASIK again!”Anthony T.
“I have done a lot of research about LASIK. I chose Dr. Herschel because not only was his website informative and professional, but the ladies and doctor was even better. They make you feel at home and I was also informed if one procedure is not good then another is available. The ladies were very patient with me especially during the procedure because I was scared; one of the ladies held my hand through the process because I was scared. The doctor is so caring he called me at home to make sure I was okay and I was informed that I was able to call at any time. If I had to do this all over again, I would choose Dr. Herschel.”Lynn P.
“PERFECT!! Staff are fantastic! Very informative and make you feel very comfortable. Office atmosphere is calming and quiet. Surgery was quick and painless, results were instant. Thank you!”Randall M.
“The entire staff is a pleasure to work with every step of the way. Every detail of the process is clearly communicated, leaving me with essentially no questions. I certainly didn’t expect to actually enjoy the whole process. The whole experience has left me wishing I had done this years ago. I have and will continue to highly recommend Herschel LASIK to my friends and family.”John M.
“Everything about my experience far exceeded my expectations. The staff made me extremely comfortable and enabled me to be totally comfortable about the procedure. Dr.Herschel was extremely professional and I have absolutely no negatives about my whole experience. Feels like a miracle.”Rachell M.
“The LASIK procedure was much smoother and shorter than I thought it would be. The Herschel LASIK staff was very courteous and professional and made me feel at ease through the whole process. Dr. Herschel explained the LASIK procedure to me and ensured that I was provided with as much information as I required. I was very happy and satisfied with my experience at Herschel LASIK.”Robert B.
“Overall, I am incredibly pleased with my experience with the Herschel LASIK group. From the start, Dr. Herschel and staff were great! They always took the time to explain available options and answered all of my questions and concerns. Now, I’m seeing 20/15 and couldn’t be happier with my eyes. Without hesitation, I would definitely recommend Herschel LASIK for anyone considering vision correction surgery. Thanks!”Matt B.
“Herschel LASIK staff are amazing, as well as Dr. Herschel himself. Very warm atmosphere in the office, great customer service. I would definitely recommend to my friends and family to get their LASIK procedure done here. Thank you so much for making a difference and helping people to see the beautiful world; it is truly a life-changing experience. I really appreciate all your work and if I can ever help you the way you helped me please do not hesitate to call me anytime.”Olena S.
“My experience with Herschel LASIK has been excellent. The staff is very professional, kind, and helpful. Dr. Herschel’s experience, knowledge, and thoroughness is outstanding. As a matter of fact, I have spoken to friends and co-workers about my positive experience and have highly recommended that they contact Herschel LASIK if they are interested in LASIK. Thank you!”Phil C.
“How can I thank Herschel LASIK enough? I was considered legally blind from the age of 10 until the age of 19 when my mother gave me the best birthday gift I could ever ask for by paying for me to get this procedure done. From day one all of the staff at Herschel LASIK has been absolutely incredible. Getting this procedure done truly changed my life. I am not only a million times more confident than I was before, but I am happy and I can see perfectly. Dr. Herschel and his staff, I can never thank you all enough! I greatly appreciate you gentle care with me. I will recommend this facility to anyone any day!”Javonna G.
“I started wearing glasses in 2nd grade and contacts in 7th. With my wedding coming up, the decision to have vision correction surgery was a no brainer! I met with Dr. Herschel and when I didn’t qualify for LASIK he had other options available for me. Dr. Herschel and his staff are beyond amazing with their willingness to accommodate and take care of you and your needs. I loved that I met with Dr. Herschel on the first visit and that he took the time to explain the different options and answer the many questions I had. I decided to have PRK on July 3, 2012. Dr. Herschel personally called me the night of my surgery to check on me and also provided his cell number just in case I needed anything. When it was time for the temporary contacts to be removed, Dr. Herschel met with me on a Sunday evening@ The one on one attention from Dr. Herschel and his incredible staff is more than I could have ever expected or asked for. They always greet you with a warm welcome and make you feel right at home. I’m so glad I chose Dr. Herschel and couldn’t have asked for a better experience.”Lindsay W.
“The entire experience was not your normal doctor/ patient/ office relationship. The experience was more one-on-one, friendly, yet professional. Loved the office. It is very comfortable. I personally have difficulties with ANY medical treatment, so the office and friendly one-on-one works very well for me. Also, appointments have been very accommodating, especially since I travel 3 ½ hours. I come here, though because I trust Dr. Herschel with my eyes.”Juliana C.
“The entire at Herschel LASIK is very professional and caring. Before, during and after my procedure they made me very comfortable. I’ve already recommended Dr. Herschel to several of my friends because of the competitive pricing and high quality of service. Thanks so much for turning my horrible eye-sight into 20/20!”Melissa M.
“Great experience with great results! The staff has been exceptionally informative and friendly. Everything was explained in detail, all questions were answered completely, and there were no hidden fees. Dr. Herschel is extremely dedicated to his patients. He gave me his cell phone number for emergencies and saw me on a weekend. I now see 20/15!”Tony P.
“Well to say the least it has been a life changing experience. Rollercoasters are no longer blurry because I had to pocket my glasses. Surfing and snowboarding because you also cannot wear glasses under goggles. I can see so much more detail, even better than with corrective lenses. Just the freedom of not being tethered to glasses. Always being cautious not to break them. I also used to get headaches from eye strain. With LASIK it is no longer an issue. I am free from frames. Best thing I can think of and highly recommend it. Even colors are more vibrant. It is almost like seeing the world in HD.”Brian W.
“I can now wake up and see everything without having to fight with contacts or glasses. I hated wearing glasses, so I would only wear contacts. With extended wear of contacts, I began to get corneal ulcers and was constantly itching my eyes and uncomfortable. Now I have no problems with my eyes. As a police officer I don’t have to worry about losing a contact lens and not being able to see. The was the best decision of my life.”Jeff C.
