Information for our Patients about COVID-19


To Our Patients,

At Herschel Lasik and Cataract Institute, the health and well-being of our patients, staff, and community are our highest priorities. We have temporarily suspended our surgeries in compliance with state, local, and CDC guidelines. We are following these guidelines in the daily operations of our practice, as well. Our office visits are currently being limited to patients with emergent conditions or medically necessary appointments, determined on a case-by-case basis.

As an alternative to office visits, we are now doing Virtual Consultations via Telemedicine. Whether you are interested in Lasik, PRK, Visian ICL, premium cataract surgery, or corneal collagen cross-linking with topo-guided PRK, Dr. Herschel can talk with you one-on-one about your options via our HIPAA-compliant telemedicine capability. Please call or text us at 407-894-8081 to schedule your consultation.

For all patients coming into the office, we have implemented a procedure that includes a screening over the telephone as well as a screening with temperature monitoring at the entry to our practice. This screening is based on CDC guidelines for identifying respiratory illnesses, including coronavirus (COVID-19).

To further protect our patients and staff, we ask that only essential caregivers accompany any patient to the practice. We are also limiting exam areas to patients only, with any accompanying person either remaining in the waiting room area or in the car.

We understand how much you value your eye care, and we are committed to continuing to provide it as determined by applicable state, local, and CDC guidelines. We care about all our patients, and we share your concerns during this unprecedented time.

If you have any questions regarding an appointment or care, please contact us at 407-894-8081. You can also follow our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/herschellasik2020/

Beautiful office. Amazing and caring staff. Getting my surgery done Saturday and the Doctor and the staff helped choose the right option for me and I didn't feel pushed to commit. One of the only few who commits the patient to a dry eye treatment as per my research. Post-surgery I hope to keep my 5 star rating because I have nothing bad to say!

I recently did my LASIK procedure about 1 week ago and was completely blown away from beginning to end with the SERVICE received from the entire staff at Herschel LASIK. The office is beautifully decorated and the staff was always professional, personable, knowledgeable and friendly. I particularly enjoyed the way that everything was explained clearly before, during and after my procedure and questions were always encouraged and answered. My experience was the best encounter to date with a physician. Excellent doctor + excellent support staff +excellent service = excellent experience and a happy customer. Thank you so much Dr. Herschel, Doris and Francesca.

Great service, sometimes a bit of a wait, but I take a full lobby as a sign of a well recommended doctor. Staff is friendly & quick to answerphones & squeeze me in when I got an eye problem. Would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting to get LASIK. Doctor even personally called to check on me the night after my procedure.

I got my LASIK procedure done here. I was apprehensive, mostly because anything to do with my eyes kind of freaked me out.
I went under a free consultation. The nurses/assistants were very nice and they answered any questions I had. Then I met Dr. Herschel and he was very nice and understanding. He explained all that would happen, how everything works, how long recovery will be, everything.
So, I agreed and start the process. I love the fact you always meet with Dr. Herschel at every appointment.
I now have 20/20 vision.
I'd highly recommend going to him for all of your vision needs.

Great surgeon and great staff. Do your research, Dr. Herschel is more than just a LASIK surgeon. He is certified and specializes in all areas of eye surgery so have peace of mind that you are getting one of the best. They use current technology and machines. More so, if your eyes aren’t ready for surgery he has no problem delaying 1-2 weeks until they are 100% good-to-go. He will not risk your health for the sake of money.
