It's all part of the extraordinary Norden experience that culminates in the wonderful gift of restored vision.


Patient Testimonials

"Having covered the Mets for a few years, I have witnessed my share of errors. Still, I couldn't see the biggest "E" of them all. Without my glasses on, the "E" that stands alone the eye chart looked like some sort of Rosarch ink blot test. Now that I've gotten the requisite sports reference out of the way, I'd like to thank you and your staff for my new vision. Your courtesy and thoroughness stood out throughout the short process. Not one question I had went unanswered, which is a much higher success rate than I usually have. Before my procedure, I was told the most important aspect in picking a doctor is making sure they had numbers, that they had performed LASIK countless times. This advice couldn't be more accurate. I would recommend you to anyone who asked, because I am fully satisfied and seeing superbly." —Andrew Marchand, Sports Reporter, New York Post

"I asked a lot of questions and did my research before choosing a doctor. Everything went exactly the way Dr. Norden said it would." —Lee Terrell, President, Van Heusen


"This is one of the best things that ever happened to me. My life with glasses and contact lenses will not be missed." —Kimberly Ann Pressler, Miss USA 1999


"I was a slave to contact lenses before Dr. Norden freed me." —Dyan Machan-Berns, Associate Editor, Fortune Magazine


"LASIK restored my vision like magic! The freedom I feel at work and during athletic activities is the best gift I ever received." —Jim Hahn, D.M.D., Endodontist
