LASIK Success Stories

"I am very happy to have had LASIK at the Laser Eye Center of Miami to correct my myopia and astigmatism. After so many years using contact lenses and glasses being able to see everything so clearly is like a miracle. The surgery is very quick and painless. I wish I had done it many years ago." —Myrka Dellanos


"After ten years of depending on glasses, I am very happy and impressed to be able to see without them. I felt very comfortable throughout the whole process and in particular I was impressed with the professionalism of Dr. Kurstin and Dr. Awad during the pre and post-operative exams. The staff is super nice and formal. If I had to go back in time I would do it all over again. " —Claudio Garcia

"My husband Mario Gonzales and I, Yaisy Gonzales, are both very pleased with the results of the surgery. The most expensive name brand of glasses could never replace the beauty of seeing through your eyes. The doctor was very sweet and made the process 100% painless." —Yaisy Gonzales




"Thank you for my life changing experience, now I am 20/20." —Willy Chirino
