"I had a wonderful experience at Medilaser. Dr. Sawarkar and his team of doctors and supporting medical staff was very supportive and patient. I was well informed of the procedure(ReLEx Smile), so I was confident before undergoing the surgery. The recovery time was barely a day. No itching, no watering and zero pain. It feels awesome to get rid of glasses. I strongly recommend Medilaser for lasik surgeries."
