What our Patients are Saying

Joe L.

Graduate Student

The LASIK surgery was a snap. I now have 20/20 vision in both eyes and would recommend LASIK to anyone interested in freeing themselves from the shackles of poor vision.

Don P.

Self Employed

If I had to use just one word for my procedure it would be "super"! I found the surgery to be painless and quick. The staff explained everything to me in a most helpful and professional manner.

Andrew H.


"I had worn glasses since the age of 19. I decided to see Dr. Balin to find out if I was a candidate for LASIK surgery. I was and had a successful surgery. I am seeing better than 20/20 and not wearing glasses at all. The freedom of not wearing glasses is great!"

Renee T.

Vice President

I was blind! I couldn't see! Now I can see again. No pain. No recovery. No dry eyes. No halos. I can see at night. I can see more than I ever remember seeing before. I'm thrilled. It's a new world.

Our Vision Correction Procedures

Age: 18–60

iLASIK, Custom All Laser LASIK

The iLASIK procedure is a completely customized, Blade-Free technology to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The procedure is performed using the VISX Star S4 laser in combination with the Femtosecond Intralase laser. The iLASIK procedure has the potential to provide some patients with better vision than is possible with their glasses or contacts.
Age: 25–55

Refractive Lensectomy

Refractive Lensectomy may be a good option for correcting the vision of patients who are not good Lasik candidates. The procedure is also a great choice for patients who are over 40 and interested in correcting both distance and reading vision.
Age: 50+

Refractive Cataract Surgery

Reduce or eliminate your need for glasses after cataract surgery. Dr. Nancy Balin performs advanced cataract surgery, in Western Massachusetts offering the latest, most technologically advanced Intraocular lenses to restore distance, up-close and in-between vision.
