The surgeons of the Laser Eye Center of Miami are Miami and Fort Lauderdale LASIK specialists. They have treated thousands of patients and helped them eliminate their dependence on glasses or contact lenses. In the paragraphs below they describe the iLASIK procedure.

iLASIK (LASER ASSISTED IN-SITU KERATOMILEUSIS):
Most patients are back to their normal activities the following day and already enjoying the benefits of iLASIK.
ASA (Advanced Surface Ablation):
This procedure is usually done on patients with thin corneas.
You should expect some discomfort for the first 2 to 3 days. Vision usually begins to improve in 3 to 4 days.
First and foremost I would like to thank the Staff from the Laser Eye Center of Miami for making my visit and, especially, my procedure a pleasant one.
At first I was hesitant to try Lasik surgery due to the idea of having a procedure done in my eyes. But fortunately I was well educated on the matter from the professional staff before hand and they made me feel comfortable that everything will go well. As it did. They explained to me the procedure in detail as well as the
recuperation process that I will undergo. Its been 2 weeks since my operation and I have to say that my vision is perfect!
I wake up in the morning appreciating life a little bit more and its thanks to the Laser Eye Center of Miami and Dr. Gabriel Lazcano.
After ten years of depending on glasses, I am very happy and impressed to be able to see without them.
I felt very comfortable throughout the whole process and in particular I was impressed with the professionalism of Dr. Kurstin and Dr. Awad during the pre and post-operative exams. The staff is super nice and formal.
If I had to go back in time I would do it all over again.

I have literally forgotten that I was once legally blind...Thanx Dr. Kurstin, I can now see how sexy your help is.
After wearing glasses and contact lenses for the past seventeen years I was ready for a change. Laser Eye Center of Miami's LASIK procedure offered me an opportunity to correct my myopia and astigmatism in minutes without pain or discomfort. As a corporate executive and active sports enthusiast, I noticed an immediate difference and was able to resume my hectic schedule the very next day. I highly recommend Dr. Joseph Kurstin to all my friends and business associates. His expertise and professionalism have made a tremendous impact in my life. My sincerest thanks to Dr. Kurstin and his entire staff at Laser Eye Center of Miami.

I had LASIK surgery after many years of having to deal with contact lenses and glasses. I am extremely happy with the results and convinced that it was the best thing I could have done for my eyes. I thank Dr. Kurstin, Dr. Awad and the staff at the Laser Eye Center of Miami for making this a wonderful experience.
Miami Laser Eye Surgery Patient
My name is Mauro. I am 41 years old and I am from Milano (Italy). While being on vacation in Florida I took the opportunity to have Lasik surgery at the Laser Eye Center of Miami to correct my myopia and astigmatism. I felt very comfortable in the center and the staff was very courteous and efficient. The Lasik surgery with Intralase was very fast, just about 15 minutes for both eyes and I did not feel any pain. The day after the surgery I was a tourist in Florida, even though I was still careful with my eyes for a week. Since the beginning my vision was good but only after 3 months it stabilized completely, the halos at night were gone.
Now I feel like another person and it seems a dream to be able to wake up and to see without having to use glasses or contact lenses. I had to change my driver license because I had a restriction due to my glasses…and now I do not see with my glasses so I had to remove the restriction. After 20 days after the surgery I went to remove the restriction and I was able to receive my driver license without the use of contact lenses of glasses. It has been now over two years since then and I still see great and if I had to go back I would do the surgery over again.
