LASIK Eye Surgery Reviews - Dr. Charles Manger

Patient Reviews

Don’t just take our Word for it — LASIK Reviews

Dr. Manger has performed more than 84,000 LASIK procedures and provided unsurpassed outcomes for his patients — 99.7% of his patients see 20/20 or better following their procedure. The other 0.3% happily see 20/30.1 It’s no surprise then that so many former patients have taken the time to make LASIK surgeon reviews and laser eye center reviews about Dr. Manger and their experience at Saddleback Eye Center. Read these laser eye surgery reviews from Dr. Manger’s LASIK patients:

“I am still in shock about how amazing this experience has been! I had wanted/needed LASIK for years, but having researched and read all about it and the risks…I kept postponing. Finally, after too many years with ridiculous readers and feeling so unprofessional-I did it! I hadn’t planned same day Lasik, but it is the best decision I have ever made-and this is only day two. The staff is amazing, so professional and I felt so confident of their skills and care. They answered all of my questions and they have instructions and a thorough system of ensuring you know how to best take care of your eyes. (way beyond my expectations!) I really appreciated how thorough they were and how during the 2+ hours of tests…how I was able to ask questions as they came up. By the time the tests were done and Dr. Manger determined I was a candidate, I was so ready and excited, and shortly afterwards had the procedure. It only took a few minutes, and I was afraid that I wouldn’t be able to hold my eyes steady-but I did! Dr. Manger and his assistant talked me through and gave me a “play by play” about how great I was doing-which helped. Amazing experience! I am so excited about my new sight and will recommend Dr. Manger to everyone.”

“Great experience! I was pretty nervous about the prospect of having my eyes operated on but my nerves were calmed during the operation by Dr. Manger’s calm demeanor and the constant coaching of his caring nurse. From start to finish, all staff members have been kind, helpful, and caring. From coaching me through proper eye drop use to all post-care details, I’ve been well cared for. My mom came to Dr. Manger to correct her vision in 2005, so I’ve been able to see how she benefited from his expertise. I’m so thankful that I put my trust and confidence in Dr. Manger and his awesome staff. God bless you all!”

“I was told many, many, years ago that I was not a candidate for LASIK as I have had glasses attached to my face since 3rd grade. My husband was set on having his eyes done and as we were discussing my 50th birthday coming up when we heard an ad on KFI and my husband decided to call. He made appointments for the both of us together for evaluations. I have always wanted LASIK and the dream started to become a reality when I found out I was, in fact, a great candidate! When we arrived, we found out you can get the procedure done that day! Then I got really excited!! After all my exams, done very thoroughly and professionally, my husband and I decided to go for it! I was excited and nervous. Everyone was so nice, and supportive. There was someone coaching us through the procedure. We went home that day amazed at how we could already see! The next morning, my vision is 20/20–I have no discomfort & I would definitely recommend. THANK YOU DR. MANGER and everyone at his office!”

“I went to three different eye doctors that told me I wasn’t a good candidate for LASIK, but when I came to Saddleback Eye Center and had my vision tested, they did several tests that I never received at the other places. I was very scared and nervous about the procedure. It was a lot easier than I could every imagine and there was NO pain during or after the procedure. Everything was explained in great detail and I was comforted during the entire procedure by Dr. Manger and his staff explaining exactly what he was doing. I will be recommending to several people up in the High Desert that before going to a doctor around there for LASIK, I’ll tell them to please come see Dr. Manger at Saddleback Eye Center in Laguna Hills! They even set me up with a complimentary overnight stay at the Marriott Hotel.”

“I heard about Dr. Manger through a mailer. My eyes finally became stable a little over a year ago. My eyesight fluctuated from -4.75 to -5.75 since I was a little girl. I’ve always wanted LASIK but never had that option until recently. I went to two other clinics before Dr. Manger’s and found that I felt the most comfortable with Dr. Manger because I got to meet a large amount of staff members and the surgeon himself. I didn’t get that opportunity at the other clinics. From the front office staff to all the technicians and doctors I got the pleasure to meet, I have to say I felt like family. I still feel like family! My experience here was great! The surgery was so fast and cool looking! I’m still in shock at how well I can see! After the surgery I could see and now the next day (today) is so clear and fabulous! I can’t wait to tell others about my experience here! Thank you all so much!”
