The process itself was very scary, but again, very worth it. It's scary because you're awake and you "see" everything as they're working on your eye and actually can smell the laser zapping your cornea. But it's also very fast and done in about 5-10 min.
The staff at liberty laser eye is really competent and knowledgeable and I felt very safe in their care. I consulted at 5 laser eye locations in the area and I felt like any of them probably would have turned out fine, but I liked that fact that Dr. Tanchel comes and talks to you at your consult. This was the only location where the surgeon participated in the consult, other places you only meet the surgeon later, usually on the day of surgery. This location also claimed to have faster healing times due to the laser they used. I obviously can't compare it to the other places since I only got laser eye surgery once, but I did feel like there was only about 3 hours of pain/discomfort and that was pretty much it. Very positive experience.
