Our Long Island Eye Doctors
A friend recommended Stahl and had her LASIK done here as well. So I made an appt and had a consultation but had to give my eyes a 3day break from contacts for proper measurements. Once Dr. Werner checked everything he recommended PRK. So I had to go another week without contacts. They found out I didn't have glasses and have been blind so they offered temporary glasses for $100 which would be taken off the price of the surgery anyways. They didn't have my strength in the store but rushed the glasses and I got it within 2days. On the day of the surgery I was nervous but Dr. Werner and the staff made me feel relaxed. They put numbing drops before and the whole surgery took around 10mins. I must say the next day was a bit uncomfortable but I was warned of it and just took it easy. My vision stayed blurry for a few days but now it's so much better!! I don't usually post reviews but I wanted to thank Dr Werner, Dr. Hufnegle and the staff!! So happy! Life changing!
When my insurance changed in 2016, I needed to find a new ophthalmologist to treat my chronic dry eye syndrome. I did some research on providers in Manhattan under my new plan and chose Dr. Marc Werner at Stahl Eyecare. This is the best decision I could have made for my continued treatment. Some background: I suffered an injury to my eyes in 2013 that triggered dry eye syndrome. This led me to the offices of numerous dry eye specialists for diagnostic purposes and treatment, including noted leaders in the field. Today, I require periodic visits to monitor my situation. Also of note: I'm very particular about the therapeutics of my condition (as a professional singer, I have an aversion to prolonged or heavy use of eye drops which drain down my throat) so I was looking for a doctor who would be considerate of my needs. I found Dr. Werner to be competent, efficient, and caring. He listens to his patients, and is willing to formulate treatment plans based on the patient's needs and desires. Because I don't like using eye drops on a routine basis, Dr. Werner suggested punctal plugs, but I was very apprehensive about a procedure requiring the insertion of a foreign object into my tear ducts. Dr. Werner fully explained and reassured me about the procedure, and provided a way for me to test using plugs. He also regularly provides me with information about new products for dry eye treatment. I've been a satisfied patient of Dr. Werner for over 10 months now. I can honestly say that my satisfaction increases with every visit (all Stahl staffers are extremely helpful and friendly), so much so, that even though my insurance has changed again, I will continue to be treated by Dr. Werner.
Everything was wonderful from start to finish!
I had PRK with Dr. Werner in January of '17. The procedure was quick, painless, and anxiety-free (thanks to the Valium). The recovery was also completely painless, and now I'm seeing 20/20 again. Worth every penny!
All staff and doctors are highly professional, well experienced and strongly recommended. 100% patient satisfaction. Thank you.
