"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:)"
"Outstanding surgeon for my lasik! The eye center of southern Indiana is a top notch facility - I chose it over anything in the Indianapolis area because it's the best. "
"The staff and atmosphere is wonderful here. I got lasik surgery here in December and the procedure went smoothly. The center itself is very comfortable and relaxing. The staff are all wonderful, from very professional, competent doctors to friendly welcome personnel. Dr. Mackey performed my lasik surgery and Dr. Gray has been my post op doc. Both drs. are professional and personable. Dr. Mackey and his surgery staff made me feel very comfortable and prepared for surgery, and Dr. Gray has been monitoring my healing process quite well and always answers my many questions. The cost may not be the lowest in southern Indiana for lasik, but the care and services are outstanding and worthwhile."
