With vision correction, as with many surgical specialties, a surgeon who has extensive experience brings countless advantages to his patients. Dr. Herschel is a specialist in both vision correction (refractive surgery) and cornea (the cornea is where LASIK and other vision correction surgeries are performed), and he has more than 25 years of surgical experience. He has examined over half a million eyes, each one of which was unique. Dr. Herschel has the expertise and knowledge to provide his patients of any age with the best possible vision, not just for today, but throughout their lifetimes. That is the core of what we do.
At our center, Dr. Herschel offers only all-laser LASIK. That means that Dr. Herschel cuts the LASIK flap using a femtosecond laser and then uses an excimer laser to sculpt the surface of the cornea. The flap is gently put back in place and serves as a natural bandage for the eye, enabling faster healing. All-laser technology is an advanced technology that can be customized to each eye. It has been shown to be safer and produce better vision outcomes than older mechanical blade technology.
We do not use a microkeratome (mechanical blade) in our LASIK surgery. The blade is an older technology that is not customizable for individual patients and has less precision; we cannot recommend it for any LASIK patient.
Topography-guided laser surgery is a technology that utilizes topographic measurements to map the irregularities of a patient’s corneas and combines that information with refractive error to produce a personalized treatment plan for vision correction patients. This technology is well-suited to patients with irregular corneas, and it can be incorporated into LASIK or PRK to treat nearsightedness, astigmatism, and farsightedness.
As a service to our patients, we are pleased to offer the CareCredit card, the nation’s leading patient payment plan. With CareCredit you can finance 100% of your procedure and there are no upfront costs, no annual fees, and no pre-payment penalties. So, you can begin your refractive or elective procedure today and conveniently pay with low, monthly payments.Apply Now
Beautiful office. Amazing and caring staff. Getting my surgery done Saturday and the Doctor and the staff helped choose the right option for me and I didn't feel pushed to commit. One of the only few who commits the patient to a dry eye treatment as per my research. Post-surgery I hope to keep my 5 star rating because I have nothing bad to say!
I recently did my LASIK procedure about 1 week ago and was completely blown away from beginning to end with the SERVICE received from the entire staff at Herschel LASIK. The office is beautifully decorated and the staff was always professional, personable, knowledgeable and friendly. I particularly enjoyed the way that everything was explained clearly before, during and after my procedure and questions were always encouraged and answered. My experience was the best encounter to date with a physician. Excellent doctor + excellent support staff +excellent service = excellent experience and a happy customer. Thank you so much Dr. Herschel, Doris and Francesca.
Great service, sometimes a bit of a wait, but I take a full lobby as a sign of a well recommended doctor. Staff is friendly & quick to answerphones & squeeze me in when I got an eye problem. Would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting to get LASIK. Doctor even personally called to check on me the night after my procedure.
I got my LASIK procedure done here. I was apprehensive, mostly because anything to do with my eyes kind of freaked me out.
I went under a free consultation. The nurses/assistants were very nice and they answered any questions I had. Then I met Dr. Herschel and he was very nice and understanding. He explained all that would happen, how everything works, how long recovery will be, everything.
So, I agreed and start the process. I love the fact you always meet with Dr. Herschel at every appointment.
I now have 20/20 vision.
I'd highly recommend going to him for all of your vision needs.
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.
