Kirsten G. – Saddleback Eye Center Patient

If you are thinking about getting LASIK, go for it!

kirstenHi, my name is Kirsten and I had LASIK surgery with Dr. Manger about a month ago. I’ve got to say it’s the best money I’ve ever spent. I love waking up every morning and looking at my clock and being able to read it. I love that I can go on hikes now and see the trail without having to fumble with my glasses. I love that I can go to a restaurant and look up at the menu and figure out what I want without having to lean over the counter and squint. If you are thinking about getting LASIK, go for it!

JaNece S.

It’s been the best thing I have ever done for myself.

janeceHi, my name is JaNece. Having Dr. Manger perform my LASIK surgery was one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself. I didn’t need glasses for most of my life, but within about a year my eyes changed and I needed bifocals. After wearing glasses for four years, that was enough for me.

I was so impressed by the professional and efficient way Dr. Manger’s office operated. It was a painless procedure and I’d do it again in a heartbeat. I had the monovision procedure and the staff walked me through it every step of the way. I would recommend Dr. Manger to anyone who wants great vision and doesn’t want to live with the hassles of glasses or contacts.

Gima H.

My life has changed tremendously.

gimaHi, I’m Gima and I’m a patient of Dr. Manger’s. I went through LASIK eye surgery about one month ago and I’ve been very happy since I got it done.

I had heard about Dr. Manger through the radio and through ads, but also I had heard so many great things about him that I decided to come in just for a consultation. I ended up that very same day doing the procedure and the very next day I went to work.

My life has changed tremendously. When I wake up, I can see and when I travel, I don’t have to worry about bringing glasses or an extra pair of contact lenses. I’m an active person so it really has been a blessing.

Darren K.

The procedure was quick and painless.

darrenHi, my name is Darren. I had the LASIK surgery about a year ago and my vision is still perfect. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. 

Dr. Manger’s staff was great; they walked me through everything. From the front desk to the laser, they made me feel comfortable. Every step of the way I was put at ease. There was no pressure, and Dr. Manger was awesome. The procedure was quick and painless and now I can see perfectly! Thank you Dr. Manger for answering all my questions and for making the surgery seem so simple.

Katherine L.

I couldn’t be happier!

katherineHi, my name is Katherine and I had LASIK about 6 months ago. I was sick and tired of wearing glasses all the time. I had been wearing glasses for ten years before I finally decided to get LASIK eye surgery.

I did my research before actually having my procedure done. I had been to a couple of LASIK centers before coming to Saddleback Eye Center. At another eye center, I was pressured into making an appointment to get LASIK,  but I just did not feel completely comfortable because I was not going to be able to meet my doctor until the actual day of my surgery.

Sarah R.

My life has changed so much since having LASIK!

sarahHi, my name is Sarah. I had LASIK surgery about 4 months ago and since then my life has changed so much! I can see perfectly now. My vision is now 20/15 compared to 20/400 before LASIK. After wearing glasses since age 10 and contacts since age 14, I never imagined being able to see the world in so many vivid colors again. I will never again take my vision for granted! 

The entire LASIK procedure – from the initial exam to the very end of the surgery – was seamless and went by very quickly. A special thanks goes to Dr. Manger for making the day I had LASIK one of the best days of my life! 

Tricia L.

I wouldn’t trust my eyes to anyone else!

triciaHi, my name is Tricia. I came to Dr. Manger after my parents both had the LASIK procedure done. I’m going to law school soon, so reading and looking at the computer has been really tough on my eyes since I had such bad vision. But since I have had the procedure done, it has been great! My vision has been perfect. Just waking up in the morning without having to put in my contact lenses or worry about glasses has been absolutely amazing.

Kristin C.

The world is a whole new place for me.

kristinMy name is Kristin. I had LASIK in February of 2011 and it has been a tremendous experience.

I hated glasses and contacts – they gave me a headache and my contacts would dry my eyes out. I couldn’t deal with that everyday.

If you are thinking of LASIK, and would like it done but you are asking yourself, “Can I afford it?” or thinking, “I have all these things going on” … don’t wait. I wouldn’t wait at all. I’m 26 years old and I wish I would have done this in college.
