In September 2013, I went to Manhattan Lasik for a consultation to see if I was eligible for Lasik Surgery. At the consultation, I was told that I was an idea candidate for Lasik.
Within a week, I had the surgery, and it was the worst decision that I have made in my life. Right from the start, in my opinion, there were red flags, but I ignored them because I was blinded with the thought of perfect vision. Instead, what resulted was severe dry eyes about a year later. My eyes are still so dry, almost a year later, that I am using eye drops 10+ times a day, along with restasis (prescription eye drops), taking fish oil as recommended by the doctor, and using anti-glare glasses to ease the pain during the day. I still experience halos around lights, subpar night vision, and have trouble focusing on objects. In addition, throughout any given day, my vision fluctuates, and I am in constant pain.
The evaluation process was more like a sales pitch. The majority of the time was spent with the sales representative, and not the doctor. He was quick to throw out facts along the line of, "we have the newest technology laser, and stated that about 3 percent of patients experience complications (which I later found out did not include dry eyes which was a much higher percentage).
In my humble opinion, Manhattan Lasik is interested in one thing and one thing only - making money, and the satisfaction and safety of the clients is a distant second.
I recently have researched Manhattan Lasik, ands its surgeons, and it appears as though there have been multiple malpractice lawsuits.
My suggestion would be to spend the extra money and go to a more reputable doctor or company. Manhattan Lasik may be cheaper than some of the competitors, but I would give up a year's pay to be able to go back and time and cancel my surgery.
