LIFE CHANGING!!! I investigated LASIK/PRK for years and checked out Dr. Melki at Boston Laser after both my friend and her husband had their LASIK procedures here. Did a bunch of research and Dr. Melki has done a ton of these procedures over many years and has had several pro athletes for clients (if Dr. Melki is good enough for pro athletes whose livelihoods depend on their vision, I figure he's good enough for me). Boston Laser is extremely thorough and their eye exams actually caught a potentially serious issue I never knew had existed (and my regular eye doctor had never noticed) and I was immediately referred to a specialist and resolved the issue within 1 week. I ended up going with PRK - Dr. Melki and Dr. Gonzalez were extremely transparent and conservative about their recommendations. In terms of the PRK, Boston Laser knows what they're doing. The day of, they had a cute little breakfast spread (nice touch and indicative that they think out every detail) and gave out a tote bag with highlighted, easy-to-read instructions (key to have while under Valium). If I had known how quick and painless the procedure was, I would have done this years ago! I had been utterly terrified but they narrated every step during the procedure and do it very efficiently - each eye probably took 1-2 minutes total (only 15-30 seconds with the actual laser). PRK recovery is slower and it was difficult to read for a day or so (the hardest part of PRK recovery for me was not discomfort but more not being able to do much other than watch Netflix since reading vision will be hazy). I ended up going back to work earlier than expected - my vision was excellent and most of the "haze" had gone away by Day 5 and continues to improve. Phenomenal experience and extremely happy I did the procedure with Dr. Melki at Boston Laser. I don't normally write such effusive reviews but I was petrified of corrective eye surgery and this was done so painlessly and perfectly I highly recommend for LASIK/PRK.

Nice folks. Organized, helpful. Easy process. They were very good at answering my questions. The surgery was easy. The recovery, too. I had my surger in the morning, and by the evening, I was comfortably able to see near and far, without glasses or contacts. Highly recommended.

Time investment well worth it for premium results. I'm glad the doctors at this office are thoughtful enough to spend the extra time with me to get it right.I think this process is always a challenge because it relies so much on the doctor patient communication. Usually I leave an eye appointment wondering if there really was a difference between 1 or 2 and if I was clear or whatever.I'll admit I grew a little impatient waiting to see the doctor but when I sat with her I immediately understood why. Time stands still until the results are achieved. Dr. Azedah Suppappola is extremely thorough and thoughtful.I'm 100% confident that my new glasses are the best fit for my needs and I'm pleased with the results.

Everything about my experience with Boston Laser has been amazing. Booking the initial consultation at the Medford office was super easy and they immediately let me know what I should do to prep (don't wear contacts for a week beforehand!). The consultation itself took about an hour and a half, and everyone was very professional and helpful. I called to let them know I was going to be a bit late and they assured me it was no problem. Rick explained all the financial options available and was very transparent in terms of what everything covered. I could've been scheduled for an appointment a week later, but I opted for a month later due to occasions I'd need my contact lenses for. This past Friday was the day I actually got lasik. They only do the surgeries at the Brookline office and on Fridays, but they're very accommodating. The woman at the front desk was very cheerful and gave me a rundown of the schedule. Shortly after I sat down in the waiting room, Dr. Melki came to greet me and let me know that I'd be starting the prep shortly. The initial technician was really knowledgeable and I appreciate her answering all of my nervous questions. She went over all the details of the procedure and made sure I was comfortable with the information. The first part of the procedure itself was a little uncomfortable (pressure on the eye) but they went over that in detail beforehand so it didn't take me by surprise. Dr. Melki talked me through the whole procedure, which I really appreciated as a nervous patient not knowing what I should be doing with my eyes! It was over in about 10 minutes, and once it was done, I could see. I immediately started crying because I hadn't been able to see 1 foot in front of me without glasses since I was 9, and I couldn't believe how sudden the difference was. It was a little foggy, but this was normal since it was right after the procedure. After the 4-hour nap they have you take after the procedure, it was crystal clear. I also appreciated that they give you contact information for each surgeon if you have any questions or concerns at all. I had my follow-up appointments the next morning and 2 days later. Both of them were really fast and efficient, even though I had to frantically call and change the appointment time. My vision used to be 20/200, and now it's 20/20 in the right eye and 20/15 in the left. I still have trouble believing that I don't need to take my contacts out, and I'm constantly in awe of everything I can see clearly. I am so incredibly grateful for the work that Dr. Melki has done and for the wonderful experience the staff at Boston Laser has given me. Thank you all so much!
