Why patients trust Hecht Eye Institute with their vision

Want to know about LASIK recovery and LASIK eye treatment? At Hecht Eye Institute we know that the best way for you to trust in the care that we provide is to hear from our other patients. These are real people who have had their vision restored and are living the lives they love.

People ask us about:

• LASIK eye surgery cost
• LASIK recovery
• LASIK eye treatment
• After cataract surgery

You can read thoroughly about our LASIK eye surgery cost here. As for LASIK recovery, many of our patients find that the recovery time is pretty quick. Generally by the next day, people feel that they have the vision to safely drive to the office for their post-operative day one appointment. Sometimes they feel that their vision is super sharp even on day one! LASIK recovery time does vary, however; sometimes patients do require some time for their vision to sharpen up fully.

Dr. Hecht did wonders for my eyes. I knew I was having cataracts. The right one was giving me problems. And he put in the Crystalens. It was so good, I said, ‘Let’s do the other one.’ I can see so much better. I can see 100% better. I had no pain. It was wonderful. I was so happy with him I would recommend to anybody.” – Jim H.

LASIK eye treatment is one of the leading ways to restore your vision to either 20/20 or very near it. It’s FDA-approved, safe and most of the time involves very little or no pain.

After cataract surgery, LASIK eye treatment or other refractive surgery, Dr. Hecht will usually place a protective shield over your eye. Hecht Eye Institute offers driving services to and from your surgery if needed so that you are safe coming to and going home from your LASIK eye treatment or cataract procedure.

I was a good candidate for LASIK surgery which was really great because I’ve had terrible eyesight since high school. I was so used to having problems with my vision. Dr. Hecht is so skilled he found a great balance for my eyesight. Even the next morning I could see better than when I was a little kid. It was a miracle. Dr. Hecht looks at me like an individual.” — Sarah K.

You will need to administer eye drops, as prescribed by Dr. Hecht, several times daily during the first few weeks after surgery. You also will need to wear your protective eye shield while sleeping or napping, for about a week after surgery. You will need to wear sun shades or sunglasses to help protect your eye in bright light.

While your eye heals, you might experience some blurred vision during the first few days or even weeks following the procedure. Dr. Hecht will provide you with thorough after-surgery instructions.

I went in to talk to Dr. Hecht about LASIK surgery because I had my doubts about it. He explained it thoroughly and everything went exactly as he said it would be. It was smooth. But since the surgery everything is great and I will be forever grateful to Dr. Hecht.” — Kenny P.

He changed my life. Being an actor. I found that my sight wasn’t what it used to be. I couldn’t see the lines. It made me feel uncomfortable. The procedure took 20 minutes. It changed my life. Made me see like a kid again. Thank you, Dr. Hecht.” — Louie C.

We are very proud of the work we do and hope that you make the decision to correct your vision with us. We look forward to seeing you and helping you see your world in the best possible way!
