What Dr Blumenfeld’s patients say about him
The surgeon was very knowledgeable and explained the whole process. The surgery lasted about 10-15mins and afterwards when I was told to sit up I could see the clock on the wall perfectly. Since then I have gained better than 20-20 vision. The customer service has been fantastic and they have helped make it a pleasant experience.
Surgery has completely enhanced all aspects of my life including sports (playing/watching), social interaction, and most important confidence. I would highly recommend Optical Express to anyone who may be considering this procedure.
