This was my 1st time going to Michigan Eye Institute and I have to say it was a great experience! Dr. Donnellon explained everything! Actually she provided see far more explanation than I have ever received at an eye appointment and I've been wearing glasses since I was about 8. This was the first appointment I didn't walk out questioning whether I replied correctly and got an accurate prescription.For anyone who has worn glasses most of your life, you know the most difficult part is picking out the frames you will live in for the next year or two. Let me tell you, Faith has skills!! She asked questions about what I was looking for and walked me through picking out what I anticipate to be the best frames I've had in a long time! I cannot wait until they come in!! It was simple and fun picking them out!As an RN another important part to me was Covid precautions. I was a little nervous and unsure what to expect. Michigan Eye Institute follows CDC guidelines and social distancing to a T. I felt comfortable throughout my visit and truly appreciated the protocols they put in place.I highly recommend Michigan Eye Institute. If you are on the fence about making that appointment, just make it! You'll be happy you did! ☺️

From my initial phone call to obtain an appointment, to meeting the check in attendant, technicians and Dr. St. Aubin, my appointment could not have gone better. In my case, the situation was appropriately explained and everyone was friendly, positive, professional and reassuring. Lastly, everything was constantly sanitized and I am so happy to have found MEI.Thank you for your kindness!

Fenton location is filled with super friendly and helpful staff from start to finish. Dr. Kautz and her clinical staff are very thorough. Both of my 15 yo twin girls were seen by Dr. Kautz. She took her time checking and explaining their eye health along with the vision testing and contact lens fitting, never hesitating to answer any questions or concerns I had. Quick to get in for appointments, short wait time, and for both visits we were done and ready to go in about an hour. Thank you to everyone at MEI!!

The manager Abbie called me and personally talked through things. While I was not happy in the moment I understand why I waited and my expectations for future visits. I appreciate Abbie's fast response!I have been coming here for over two years. I use to see Dr. Shaw. I was contacted that she had left and would be seeing a new doctor. Not a big deal. However I have now been sitting in the lobby for over an hour past my appointment time and was told there are still two people ahead of me. I will never understand why appointment times are set to not be honored. A few minutes is understandable. Even 30 minutes would not be awful, but an hour and still waiting for who knows how long is just not acceptable. I will be looking at alternatives.

This place is extremely busy, so you must make an appt. I was surprised at how fast we got in. My father and I both had appts and they had no problem accommodating our needs. My Dad is 87, has some dementia and gets confused if he dozed off and then wakes up, which he did a couple times while we were there, so they allowed us to have our appts at the same time. They just alternated between us and I was always with my Dad. Plus my Dad has a broken ankle making it hard for him to get around and they helped me get him into the different chairs as needed. I will definitely come here again when needed.

I felt that I was not being rushed through the visit. The young lady who prep'd me for the doctor was very nice and personable, she actually engaged in conversation with me, (I am bad with remembering names). She also took the time to review the medical information I provided before engaging with me, rather than asking me about things I already addressed in the dreaded forms we all hate to fill out on a first time visit, LOL, and thus only requiring clarification of certain information. The Doctor was friendly and professional as well and I would recommend MEI to others.Ps. I was impressed with their system of providing Covid safety during this pandemic as well. I have underlying health conditions and therefore a high risk person. I wish more businesses cared about public safety and were willing to take the necessary steps to assure the high safety measures are taken for their staff and customers protection. It is unfortunate that so many folks and businesses in the Lapeer area are ignoring Science, CDC and Public Health Warnings and State guidelines. Thank you for not being one of them.

I had such an amazing experience with LASIK surgery at this location. I started at the Flint location and the staff was amazing and answered all my questions and went over the process and I was happy to get right in with the procedure. Linda was super knowledgeable and friendly. When I got to the Lake Orion location day of surgery Beth went over everything from the sounds I would hear to how I would feel afterwards. Dr. Aubin's confidence and being so personable made me feel comfortable having the procedure. I was so amazing to see right away and as the day progressed my vision got better! My follow-up appointments have all been at the Flint location with Dr. Tekiele and just so happy I did it. Being a big baby when I comes to my eyes but so worth being able to read the shampoo bottle in the shower and see all the time.

I have seen several opthamologists at MEI, and have been pleased with my experiences. The physicians are friendly, knowledgeable, and good communicators who explain information thoroughly, and always ask if I have questions or concerns. I have been seen promptly, and find that the facilities appear clean and inviting. My overall experience with the support team has been good. The staff is, for the most part, friendly and courteous. I encountered a couple of staff members who came across a bit dismissive, but the instances were isolated, and appeared to be related to the busyness of the practice. The impression that I got, was that they may have felt stressed or overwhelmed (who doesn't from time to time!?). I recommend MEI for your surgical and non-surgical eye care needs.

I got the LASIK procedure done only 2 days ago, and I am already loving the results! In just 1 day post op, there is 100% improvement in my vision! I now have 20/15 vision all on my own!! No pain was experienced in any part of the procedure, just scratchy and dry eyes after, which I was told is a normal part of the healing process and will resolve with time and the eye drops regimen! It’s already such a relief to just wake up and go without worrying about putting my glasses on or contacts in! The doctors and staff here are amazing and helpful, explaining everything thoroughly and welcoming any questions. They walked me through the whole process multiple times, and made me feel comfortable. The surgeon even took the time to come in and meet and talk with me face to face before I was taken back for the surgery. Very professional. If you’re considering having LASIK done, or are just scared to do it, just go for it and leave everything in the hands of Michigan Eye Institute- they will not steer you wrong! THANK YOU for the beginning of a better life! 😊👁

One of the few places I have been in the last month who gets it! They are taking the safety of their staff and customers very seriously regarding covid-19. They are observing safe distancing as much as possible. There's a person who takes your temperature and administers a questionnaire to ensure that you are not a risk, before you enter the building. They have staff who are regularly disinfecting surfaces which are commonly touched. The waiting room chairs have been reduced to ensure safe distancing. They require face masks be worn and even recommend that you bring your own pen to complete any paperwork. My sincere thanks to the management and their staff for their efforts to keep everyone safe while still providing great service!

My step-daughter came with me and all staff would spend time with her explaining what they were doing with my tests. The front desk staff spent time talking with her about her Valentines Day box and what she wanted to be when she grew up. Front desk staff and her ended up hugging as they talked about their anxiety-all started with question about what you want to be when growing up. None of staff had to pay attention to her, but they did!!!

I visited the Eye Institute this week for a routine eye exam and to choose frames for my new glassesFrom the moment I came in the service I received was prompt, friendly and knowledgeable.I am disabled and everyone went out of their way to accommodate me. and ensure that I was comfortable.The wait for my appointment in the large comfortable waiting room was brief. The building is large, spacious and well organized. The technician was polite and knowledgeable and took her time to explain what she was doing and took time to carefully address my questions and concerns.Likewise, Dr. Tekiele, was he optometrist was friedly, knowledgeable and thorough in his examinationI am new to the Flint area and was most pleased with all areas of service at The Eye Institute. I wish all physician offices displayed such excellent quality of service to their patients.

I had Dr Daniel St. Aubin. He did real well on my surgery for cataracts in Dec. I am very pleased with him and everyone. If you metabolize medicines slowly, before surgery tell him that. If he knows that, he can distribute the medicines sooner so you are more relaxed and pain free.If you’re sensitive to cold temperatures wear a couple of shirts ( must be short sleeve) and a pair of extra pants because it’s cold in the surgery and prep room.If you can afford it, get the trifocal lens, you’ll love them. No need for glasses at all. ( They are referred as the Cadillac lens)Thank you MEI for making my eyes clear with no need for glasses.Debbie

I had lazer assisted cataract surgery and lens implants I upgraded to an advanced Toric lens implant BEST DECISION I HAVE EVER MADE it took me months to decide to have the surgery because I was so scared but everyone at Michigan Eye Surgery Center was beyond nice from the moment I walked in the door they kept me informed of everything that was happening even during the surgery I had someone right there talking me through it the only side affect I had after surgery was sensitivity to light for the first few days but other then that it all went pretty smooth I'm now 20/20 in both eyes!!!!

They're great here. I'm getting my eyes examed for contacts. Very professional facility. My husband had to work today, so they really helped with accommodations for me and three kids. The visit has gone smooth and I'm just glad to have chose a place to genuinely help.

I had a wonderful experience having LASIK performed at this location after getting a free consultation (see website). The doctors and staff were very informative, accurately explaining what to expect and answering my questions. Procedure was conducted very professionally, with plenty of preparation and after care to ensure things would go smoothly.

I will state Lasik was a very scary procedure for me to go through, but the way the staff handled my panic with ease was amazing. They made such a comforting attempt to make going under the laser such a seamless process. The results are astounding and I would recommend this to anyone who is dealing with the daily routine of having to grab their glasses everyday to wake up and go to the bathroom. Even the post op appointments are quick and you just always are feeling cared for. 5 stars for Michigan Eye Institute and that option for Lasik surgery!

I began the eye testing shortly after I checked in, and everyone I encountered was friendly, knowledgeable, and made me feel very comfortable. Dr Mahalak is the best, and once again provided a concise review of my eye situation. I trust him!

Great staff, very professional and always a pleasure coming there. The only thing I didn’t like was being asked questions and having to fill out paperwork every 3 years with many of the questions I was already asked. Once I got into the room, the technician had more information there on the computer than they did in the front office! It seems kind of redundant to have to ask the same questions repeatedly or having to fill them out on a questionnaire.

Dr Diskin and his ladies are always so friendly and efficient! I've never had a problem there until today! It wasn't with the Dr or his staff it was with the gentleman( and I use this term generously) in the glasses dept. First off he asked what I was wanting and when I said I was looking for some glasses he tells me that they close at 4:00 so I need to be quick about it! So he is rushing me to choose a frame and he says that from what he sees on his screen I usually choose only what's covered. Then he asks did I know which ones I wanted and I tell him that I wasn't sure which ones were covered so he jumps up and goes over to where the covered frames were but they are not there . He sees that one of the other ladies has them and he basically goes over and takes them! He brings them back and I tell him that I was really wanting to get some sunglasses and did they have some that were covered to which he a pair that snidely replies that they don't have any covered sunglasses but that I can choose one from the display that he took from the other lady and they just "make" those into sunglasses. So i find some that will do under the circumstances and he proceeds to tell me that going with the Dr's recommendations it will be $110.00!! I said I was only wanting what was covered he then says it will be $15.00 so finally I say how much will it be if I just get them regular glasses.? He said there won't be any extra charge so I said ok I'll just get them that way. He then proceeded to say ok well you're all set and waves me off like I was some kid or dog or something! So he just dismissed me!! I couldn't believe how rude he was! I don't know if it was because I didn't get anything extra or what but to just wave at me in a dismissive way was very demeaning! So as I gathered my belongings I tell him that I hope I didn't keep him too long and that i guess I must have for him to act the way he did! If they weren't closing I would have asked for a supervisor to report him for the way he treated me! I feel bad now because as I said at the beginning... I have never had any problems there before!

Yesterday was my first visit to this location. I was VERY impressed by the staff. I have been to multiple eye care places over the years, and very few run as efficient and professional as this one. Everything was clearly explained to me from start to finish, and at no point did I feel like I was being processed, which in today's world is quite rare. Nice to go to a professional where you don't feel like you are an inconvenience. The staff truly care about patient satisfaction. Thank you for the pleasant experience.

Large facility and usually you can get in and out in a reasonable amount of time. All of the doctors are very friendly and professional. Got my Lasik done there and it turned out fantastic. They also gave me a 30% off coupon for sunglasses so I got a good deal on some Maui Jim's. Lots of appointment opportunities and TV to watch while you wait. They also give free samples on items every once in a while.

From calling and making the appointment for my children, to the check in process, to the very patient technician who by the way had to put up with 2 crying kids. Dr Bruns made us feel like part of his family. The optical dept was very nice,clean and organized. The optical dept really made it easy to choose glasses for my daughter. I am very please with my experience and will be back for my yearly exam.

I had LASIK surgery about 5 months ago. It was an amazing surgery! The procedure was honestly really cool to experience. The staff is second to none from beginning to end. Very thorough in the pre surgery appointments and very good at communicating what the procedure entails. I've been in glasses and contacts since middle school, but I don't need them anymore! At one day out from LASIK I was already 20/20, and even better up close. Now five months later, I am 20/15. Thank you Dr. Tekiele and Dr. Diskin!

Yes, the appointment did last 2 1/2 hr for a full opthalmological examination. This is not a chain-store optometrist. Wait times from sign in and in between testings done by friendly and obviously caring technicians until the time I saw the doctor was a total of 20 - 30 minutes. Not only did I leave there with a full medical clearance to continue my medication mailed to my doctor before I left the office but with an eyeglass prescription I am confident with. The staff took their time to work with my dry eye issue to get a consistent result. If your just looking for glasses by all means, skip the Eye Institute and go to your local chain-store. But if you want a full medically based exam this is a great place to be. Flint location, Dr. Shaw.
