My recent visit at Boston Eye Group to continue my treatment with Dr. Jason Brenner could not have been better. The wait to be seen was very short, the assisting technician was friendly and efficient. and I saw Dr. Brenner very shortly after that. He and I were very pleased with my test results. Check out and setting a future appointment was equally quick and efficient. I highly recommend Dr. Brenner and Boston Eye Group.
Went in for a Lasik consult in mid-March. Did all the testing, the providers were clear on why I wasn't a good candidate for Lasik. My provider that day, Dr. Yao talked to me about the alternative, PRK. She had it done herself so she was able to tell me about what she personally experienced during recovery and what helped with the discomfort. I booked my surgery for their next available, which was about a month later, seems like this practice is really busy, which was a good sign. I went in two days before surgery to meet the surgeon and have any final questions answered. This visit was kind of a waste...waited half an hour only to have Dr. Melki take a look at my chart and say "I agree with this treatment plan, did you watch the videos? do you have any questions?" I returned two days later for the surgery, spent like two hours at the office, and left. Still recovering from PRK and aside from a pretty excruciating 36 hours it's been fine. My vision is still a bit blurry, but that's to be expected with PRK, though it is still vastly improved from before surgery. Boston vision seems efficient, there were no glaring red flags about how the practice operates, and I got my vision correction surgery and left with my eyes intact. The staff was attentive and has made themselves available for post op questions. My only real negatives were the pointless pre-op visit (might be more useful for people who are marginally eligible for lasik over PRK or something) and the fact that the prescription post-op pain med was a topical eye drop. I don't want to sound drug-seeking, but regrowing the outer layer of your cornea skin after having it scraped off kinda calls for something a little stronger than advil and topical eyedrops. There's probably some clinical reason for this (or just general hesitancy to prescribe anything stronger, which is understandable). I just wanted to note that for people who may be considering PRK to be prepared to raw dog the extreme discomfort that starts about 24 hours after surgery and continues for like 36 hours after that.
