The following letter is from a 34 year-old US Army Intelligence officer from Brooklyn, New York. After his procedure with Dr. Kelly in the summer of 2002 to correct nearsightedness, he was deployed to Iraq where he quickly learned the benefits of the LASIK procedure. We wish him and those around him a safe return.

Dear Dr. Kelly,I just wanted to let you know how critical it was that I had the Lasik procedure performed before deploying to Iraq.When I first went into Iraq at the beginning of the war, no one knew what to expect. We encountered sporadic small arms fire, night attacks on our compound, and natural hazards such as sand and dust storms.  It was under these conditions that we had to react very quickly at times, especially at night. I can’t imagine having to fumble for glasses in that situation or having to engage a threat with my previously poor vision. I could sleep comfortably knowing that if anything happened (which it did on numerous occasions), I’d be ready to handle it immediately.Prescription ballistic eyewear wasn’t quickly available when we left, and thanks to the Lasik procedure I was able to wear readily available non-prescription ballistic glasses, protecting my eyes from sand, dirt, and more importantly debris from explosions.The Lasik procedure enabled me to be ready for whatever we encountered without having to think about it, as I had to all my life wearing contacts or glasses.Needless to say, I’ve been recommending the procedure to new guys heading over.Thanks again. I hope you enjoy the photos.

Dr. Kelly is amazing! He’s a great doctor. Very straight foward, him and his staff make you feel very comfortable everytime you go for a visit. I had my LASIK surgery done a little more than a year ago. Couldn’t thank him enough for the change in my life. Would recommend him to anyone looking to get LASIK done. Thank you Dr. Kelly and staff!

Kathya had lasik on 3/15/12.

My two older children also had it done. They went in for their first consult and, thank God, they were both candidates for the surgery. They were done with the whole process within two weeks. It was that quick. It depends on what your situation is. You can really get in, make an appointment and be done pretty soon after.

I heard about laser surgery years and years ago, maybe 15 or 20 years ago.  I never thought it was something I was ever going to be able to do or afford. It was something futuristic. Then, two or three years ago, a friend of mine had it done with Dr. Kelly and told me it was the best thing in the world. . .

Love Love Love Kelly Laser Center and the whole staff. I got my Lasik done last week and I cant stop spreading the word about how great the process was and my excitement about being able to see 20/15…WOW. I am offiically a walking billboard.

Let me start by saying that every time my wife or I meet Dr Kelly, we can NOT believe how great a person he is!

Despite having thousands of patients, I cant believe how he is able to give such individual attention.

My wife needed a touch up and he knew how difficult it is for her to come to the city. He fit her in his schedule and did the procedure right away. I am sure any other doctor would have given her the run around.

Your whole team is amazing !! I feel soo lucky to have found Dr Kelly and his staff.

My wife and I were discussing the same thing as she came home last night.

Do let Dr Kelly know that we truly appreciate it.

Keep up the great work!
