"I just had my LASIK eye surgery done with Dr. Mackey at the Eye Center yesterday.  I recommend it highly, and wish I had done it sooner.  The staff was as sweet as can be, and I felt so comfortable the entire time.  I would really like to thank Dr.Mackey, Dr Gray and Melissa for taking such good care of me.  There was virtually no wait times which cut down on my nerves substantially.  The procedure itself was completely painless and was over before I knew it. I’m super pleased with my experience:)"
