Testimonials

Astoria Medical"I have worn contact lenses or glasses for the last 15 years of my life. I have always wanted to get lasik surgery due to the fact that I was basically blind (-7.5 in both eyes) without my contacts. I stumbled upon Astoria Lasik and couldn’t be any happier that I did. From the receptionists to the doctors, the staff is unbelievably friendly, helpful and reassuring; attributes that are invaluable when you are having a procedure done on your eyes. I never once had a problem with reaching Dr. Menezes so that she could answer any one of my numerous, sometimes repetitive, questions.

About 2 months after the surgery I am still 20/20, I cannot describe what that feels like. This was the best money I have ever spent in my life and I'm happy I did it here at Astoria Lasik. I went for consultations at other offices within Manhattan and they didn’t come close to the level of customer service I received here.

Dr. Calenda and Dr. Menezes were both incredible. They both pay close attention to every detail involved, including Dr. Calenda giving you a quiz prior to surgery so that he is 100% sure he is using the correct specification."

Astoria Medical"I've been putting off Lasik surgery for years because I was just too afraid to do it. I did a consultation with Dr. Menezes and she curbed a lot of my fears and concerns. Of course, those thoughts didn’t go away completely, after all its our eyes we're talking about here! She answered all of my questions and then some. Went step by step with what I needed to do to prep for the surgery, went step by step with what was going to happen during the surgery, and went step by step with post surgery procedures as well. She sent me home with material to read over so that I could be well-educated. The more you know about something, the less apprehension. My surgery was scheduled in 2 weeks for Feb 9. Dr. Calenda is the doc that actually does the Lasik surgery. He felt my nervousness and was very gentle and detailed. He went into even more detail as to what will happen in the surgery. And from what I remember, he had a very mellow voice as he talked me through the procedure. He would say stuff like "you're going to feel pressure on your eye. Just stare at the green light. Don’t blink, you’re doing just fine. Ok, you’re half way there. Ok, 3/4 of the way there. Ok, you are done. Good job." Let me tell you, his mellow voice and knowledge put me at ease. As much ease as you can get when you're doing a big thing like this. Anyway, Ever since then, my life has improved! No more contacts or glasses, no cleaning them every night, no nothing. I am done with them for good! Thank the Lord!! 20+ years of doing that..I don't miss it at all. I went from -6.5 in both eyes and I’m 20/20 now and I feel like the shackles have come off!

If you’ve been thinking about doing Lasik - do it!! I had all the same concerns as everyone else - too afraid, too this, too that. This is wayyy worth it! And to do it at a top notch facility with the latest technology and super clean building - even better.

A+ for Dr. Menezes and Dr. Calenda!! A+ for Kenya and Chachi!! All professional, yet very personable, sweet and accommodating! I’m recommending everyone I know to them."
