Only the best eye doctors at Saddleback Eye Center
Dr. Manger has assembled a team of best-in-class LASIK eye doctors to assist him with his practice. While you will always be examined by Dr. Manger at your comprehensive, 14-test diagnostic LASIK exam, one of Dr. Manger’s optometrists will perform the preliminary portion of your exam. You will also see one of these LASIK eye doctors during your postoperative visit, along with Dr. Manger. However, all LASIK procedures are performed by Dr. Manger. There are no other surgeons at Saddleback Eye Center.
