What Our Patients Are Saying About Us
“I recently had LASIK surgery at Dr. Mandel’s office and could not be happier with the care I received and my results. Dr. Mandel and staff were extremely accommodating and helpful in every aspect of the process, from outlining insurance procedures to calming my nerves before the procedure. It has been a week since my surgery and my vision is better than it has ever been. I would recommend Mandel Vision to anyone who is looking for the best.” ~Jay Salasko
“I just want to thank Dr. Mandel and his staff for this wonderful opportunity to see again. They did an outstanding job with my lasik experience. I was very nervous at first going into this surgery but Dr. Mandel and his staff were very professional and helped me along the way. It has been 24 hours since my procedure and I have better than 20/20 vision. With NO pain or discomfort. I highly recommend Dr. Mandel if you are looking for an amazing eye doctor. Thank you!” ~Anthony Rudovic
This Week’s Eye Health Tip
Know your Hb A1C! (Hemoglobin A1C) Your Hb A1C is a way to monitor your glucose control. If you’re diabetic and your blood sugar isn’t under control, your vision may not be stable. For this reason, if your doctor says your blood sugar is not stable, we recommend not changing your glasses or contact lens prescription until your blood sugar is under control. Ask your doctor what Hb A1C value is appropriate for you.
