    Mr Lake put me at ease, explained my procedure well and answered all of my questions. On the day of my surgery he gave me time to ask more questions and explained what he would be doing. His calm professionalism during the surgery added to my own sense of calm. His skill is evident due to the wonderful result! I am enjoying excellent vision once more. Thank you.
