I was burdened with glasses at a very young age. Without them I could only see what was in front of my face.I used contacts for a few years but my eyes would dry out to much the older I got. When I heard about LASIK I was scared but decided to schedule my appointment.Thank you to Doctor Mishra and his team, they were the best. They talked me through the whole procedure and assured me that I was doing a good job. This was by far a life changing decision and one of the best decisions I ever made. To anyone thinking about LASIK or where to go, check out Schein Ernst Mishra Eye.


I had the new Raindrop procedure less than a month ago and it’s already the best thing I ever did. I depended on my reading glasses for everything and now I can read my phone, my computer, and my books without looking for my readers!

Dr. Ernst and his staff were awesome through my entire experience. Dr. Ernst explained everything from beginning to end and the procedure was quick and painless.

I would highly recommend them to everyone and I would do it again in heartbeat.


At this post-op check for my second cataract surgery, Dr. Mishra was able to put all my worries to rest about the progress and successful outcome of BOTH of surgeries.

I am very pleased with Dr. Mishra’s care and concern.

I am also very pleased with the staff at the surgical center.


To begin with, cataract surgery as with any surgery is serious. We are talking about the eyes after all. My experience with the staff and doctors at Schein Ernst Mishra Eye was a truly rewarding experience. All of the staff were attentive, very professional and genuinely liked people (you can not fake that). I was pleasantly surprised to receive a personal call from Dr. Mishra the night of my initial surgery. My entire experience was exceptional and with the addition of a patient portal, that allows me to access my records, I would highly recommend Schein Ernst Mishra Eye to all my friends and family.


Dr. Ernst performed my Lasik and multifocal inplant surgery about two years ago. WOW WOW I am so happy with the results. I am 67 years old and had worn glasses since 5th grade. I no longer wear ANY glasses, except sunglasses. I can read everything without glasses and see everything clearly. I just had my annual checkup this week and my vision is still 20/20 for distance and reading. I would highly recommend this surgery it is well worth it:))

I was the lucky winner of free LASIK from the Harrisburg home show drawing. I want to say thank you to Michelle, director of Marketing for calling me with this exciting news, she was a pleasure to deal with and made this experience very special! I’m not even sure how to begin to show my gratitude toward the staff at Schein Ernst Mishra Eye Associates. They are an exceptional practice and I wouldn’t even have considered getting it done anywhere else. In saying that though,I was skeptical about getting LASIK at first and I went to the pre-op appointment loaded with questions and concerns but Dr. Ernst and his staff not only answered all my questions but completely put my mind at ease. They were very pleasant and extremely thorough. Then the day of the procedure came and it was a complete success! The surgery team talked me through the entire procedure including praising me every step of the way. The surgery was painless, short and miraculous! The next day I was tested and able to see 20/20! The only minor side effect is sensitivity to light which is already seeming to get better with each day. I am extremely confident in recommending this office, in fact I already have to many family and friends contemplating LASIK. I am forever indebted and grateful to Dr. Ernst and his staff. Thank you so much for performing a miracle that will change my life forever!


We have been doing business with this team for years. I had lasik,my mom had eye surgery as well as getting our regular appointments. The staff is phenomenal, always very polite, caring and making sure the patient is comfortable and cared for. I would recommend this office to all.


I’m coming up quickly on my one-year appointment post-op for Lasik eye surgery, and I am so happy I chose Schein Ernst Mishra! I barely ever think about my eyes anymore, and I can’t tell you how refreshing that is! The surgery itself was very quick and the nurses were all very soothing, even holding my hand because I am nervous about anything around my eyes. However, it was over and I was headed home before I knew it. I was back into the regular flow of life within a week of my surgery, and I could drive to the follow-up appointment by myself the very next day. To anyone thinking about Lasik or where to go– definitely check out Schein Ernst Mishra.

A few years ago, my husband had PRK surgery done at Schein Ernst Eye to improve his vision. The results were so good, it wasn’t long before I booked my own appointment for LASIK. The entire staff was very helpful and accommodating through the process. Dr. Mishra performed both of our procedures and I couldn’t praise him enough. I was completely at ease, knowing I was in the care of such a well-established and knowledgeable ophthalmologist. The surgery itself went wonderfully and by the next day, I had 20/15 vision. I would highly recommend Schein Ernst Mishra Eye to a friend (in fact, I already have several times) and to date, I still regard it as one of the best investments that I’ve ever made.


I couldn’t go with out contacts or glasses before my LASIK surgery. This office has the best customer service! Friendly and helpful staff made my experience amazing! Thank you Dr. Ernst! You dedication to LASIK surgery has changed my life!


I have been a patient of Dr Herbst for over 20 yrs. Schein Ernst Mishra did my cataract surgery. Everyone has always been extremely nice. Always recommend my friends to them


I saw Dr Miller today and it was a great visit! I love his sense of humor and his ability to make you at ease. The staff are great also. I would suggest anyone to go there especially if you have diabetes see Dr Miller.


My LASIK experience was great. The staff were kind and professional and everyone exceed my expectations.

I would highly recommend anyone to Schein Ernstt Mishra Eye Center. I traveled almost 4 hours for my LASIK treatment and it was well worth the drive.

Dr. Ernst is fantastic and he went above and beyond ion my care and the total patient experience.


I was previously employed by Dr. Ernst and Dr. Mishra as their surgery nurse a few years ago. I was able to witness on a first hand basis how both doctors took excellent care of their patients and exhibited very careful attention to details in their work. Even after relocating out of state, I decided without question I wanted to have my LASIK procedure done at Schein Ernst Mishra Eye with the doctors and staff I trusted. I was pretty nervous for my procedure but the staff made me feel very relaxed and comfortable. I appreciated that the whole process was explained to me step by step so I knew what to expect. The procedure itself was very quick, easy and painless. The next day at my follow-up I had 20/15 vision – better than my I even had with contacts. I highly recommend Schein Ernst Mishra Eye for anyone considering getting LASIK. I only wish I would have done it sooner!


I am so relieved with my experience at Schein Ernst Mishra Eye. Understandably, I’m petrified when anyone comes near my eyes and I have to try and remain calm even for simple eye exams. I was nervous about choosing the right facility for my LASIK eye surgery, but those fears were put to rest at Schein Ernst Mishra Eye. From my first consultation onwards, the friendly staff has handled me and my nervousness with the greatest of care. All of the front desk staff greet me by my name and both Dawn and Michelle have gone out of their way to help answer my questions. Dr. Ernst’s professionalism and tact has been greatly reassuring as well, and the surgery itself went just fine, even though I was apprehensive and jumpy beforehand. Life after LASIK is incredible. I don’t have glasses on my face or contacts in my eyes, but the very next day I felt comfortable enough (and safe enough!) to drive the car to the office for the follow-up appointment. If I had to do the experience again, I wouldn’t think twice. I am absolutely comfortable entrusting my eyesight to Dr. Ernst and his wonderful staff.


I had LASIK procedure done on March 19, 2015. I was very impressed with the procedure itself and Dr. Ernst and his staff. They were very professional and informative throughout the entire process. During the actual procedure, they let me know what was going on every step of the way and frequently asked me if I was okay. I am very happy with the results. I was very impressed with Dr. Ernst when he called me at home later in the day on the day of my procedure to make sure I was doing okay. The follow-up appointment the next day went very well. The staff checked to make sure everything was progressing okay, informed me of everything I needed to do, and let me know what I should expect in the upcoming week. Although the procedure is not for everyone, I would definitely recommend having it done at Schein Ernst Mishra Eye.


Dr. Ernst, I want to thank you so much for the care you have given me all through my awesome surgery! You have exceeded my expectations and your caring heart is present, along with such a pleasurable smile that brightens the day!

I also want to compliment your staff assigned to me, they were very courteous and sensitive to my needs. Having my friend with me till the surgery warmed my heart! Tons of Thanks for your care!


My LASIK experience was the best it could possibly have been! Every staff member was professional, caring, and knowledgeable. You feel like an individual at Schein-Ernst, not that you are just another patient. As an RN myself, I know what medical care can be like, and I know the risks. I never had any doubt or insecurities about trusting my eyes to Dr. Ernst. Not only was I impressed with his surgical skill, I loved how personal and friendly he was to me and my family. Also, the OR staff was great! They talked to me and explained what was happening each step of the way. I’ve never felt (or seen) better! Thank you to everyone at Schein-Ernst Eye Care – I will recommend you to everyone! 🙂


I had a wonderful experience with my LASIK surgery at Schein Ernst Eye Associates. Dawn and Michelle were so sweet and took great care of me , and Dr. Ernst did a great job correcting my vision. My results have been great and I have had no issues or complications post-surgery. Everyone there took great care of me and it was a wonderful experience from start – to – finish.


From consult to post-op, my LASIK experience was wonderful. The staff was friendly and helpful and Dr. Mishra was thoroughly informative and assuring. The change in my vision has been drastic and life changing. The procedure itself was quick and painless. It was over before I knew it. Anyone considering LASIK will not be disappointed with the doctors and staff at Schein Ernst Eye Associates.


I received exceptional care from the doctors and LASIK staff at Schein-Ernst Eye Associates. The staff was extremely caring and supportive of my being nervous prior to surgery. Dr. Ernst spoke with me the minute I was brought into the OD. We even spoke of things off topic to ease my mind. I was walking through the procedure and everything was happening. I was told exactly what to expect. Dr. Ernst and his LASIK OR Staff are the epitome of compassion and quality patient care. I live approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes from the nearest SEE Associates Center. I can say the commute down and back from each appointment was well worth the trip. If I had to do it all over again, I would not change one thing. I highly recommend!!!


Of course I was concerned having my eyes operated on. I am by trade a crane operator and instructor so clarity and my perception need to be precise. I discussed my situation with Dr. Ernst and he took the time to help me decide which procedure would be best for my needs. I wanted to wait 1 week before writing this so I can give a true evaluation. It was without a doubt the best decision for me and my needs. I still get excited and thrilled when I wake up in the and can see everything. In my situation my eye sight is a little hazy yet, but I see noticeable improvement everyday. Thank you to Dr. Ernst and ALL the staff who truly showed they cared about me and my well being. In my opinion don’t wait any longer to get this done and DON’T call anyone else!!!


When I woke up the next morning and could read the time on the alarm clock, I thought I might still be dreaming. For the first time in 30 years, I’m contact lens and glasses free! Thanks, Dr. Ernst and your great team! I love my new eyes! Why did I wait so long to do this?!?!


It’s all in the details and Schein Ernst Eye did not miss a detail. Every single detail was outlined,explained and discussed. Everyone at the facility has a specific role and it is carried out with great care.

I was very afraid that my prescription was to bad for correction. Change is scary and when you think of your eyesight nothing is more frightening in my opinion. I have been wearing glasses since elementary school and they have gotten progressively stronger as I aged. I really wanted to see more clearly, but did not know what to expect.

Dawn my coordinator was terrific. I can’t tell you how many times I called her with questions, and she was very understanding and set my mind at ease. I knew exactly what the payment was, my appointments were scheduled in advance and she followed up as promised. Stephanie was so thorough with my exam, so patient with my questions and very competent in what she does.

The day of the surgery Nicole was tasked and getting me prepared. I was nervous and silly and a little dopey but she was very friendly and patient. Nicole went over every single detail for post op care.

Dr Ernst, what can I say, He is amazing. He knows his stuff. He is very kind and engaging. He told me everything he was going to do and what he was doing at the time. When it was done I could see his beautiful eyes! What a miracle!

Every single detail is taken care of by Schein Ernst – even the pillow they have you hold onto during the procedure -Genius! (not to mention a follow up call by the Dr Himself)

I have been in Customer Service for 30 years and with a service oriented carrier company so my standards are pretty high. Schein Ernst exceeded all Standards of Excellence.


Schein Ernst is by far the BEST LASIK Provider in our area. Over 9 years I had consultations at 4-5 different facilities. I can’t say enough how happy I am to have waited for the surgery. A co worker referred me and from the first phone call everyone was very friendly and welcoming . Dr Mishra took such great care of me and the time he spent going over my fears and anxiety was very much appreciated. Never did they hold back information, good or bad. Every step of my recovery, he explained in full detail, which calmed my worries. My eyes were a -9.75, I thought I would be stuck with contacts forever. Thank you so much to the Schein Ernst Team for giving me this gift! Best money ever spent and I continue to tell everyone I “see’ how happy I am with the results of your team


I had worn glasses or contacts since I was in second grade. I was tired of all the hassles of contacts and glasses just weren’t an everyday option for me. I had been thinking about LASIK for several years but never got around to doing it. After speaking with several other LASIK patients and hearing how happy they were, I finally decided to go through with it. My Uncle referred me to Dr Ernst and I made arrangements immediately. I was so thrilled with how easy the entire process was! Everyone at Schein Ernst is so friendly and they really make you feel as though you are their only concern. I am so happy with my results and have been recommending LASIK to everyone I know. Thank you Dr Ernst! I can finally see clearly!


The quality of care that Schein + Ernst provided to me the day of my surgery was extraordinary! The time and effort they had given me before and after my surgery was above and beyond my expectations. Dr. Ernst was great and Dawn, one of the assistance, was fabulous. It’s been over a week and I am still adjusting to my new vision/ My right eye is 20/20 and my left is 20/25 or 20/30. Swelling is still there. I have had a week checkup already and will go back in 1 1/2 weeks again. I do not see as clear as I did with contacts but they say it will come in time. Some others heal faster than others. I have spoken to others in the Schein + Ernst office and they’ve had great results. I hope to be one soon as well. Schein + Ernst thank you and I’ll see you soon again. I recommend your services to all.


I can’t stop smiling! I guess that pretty much sums it up because it’s hard to adequately express just how ecstatic I am about my new eyesight! After a year of continual problems, eye infections, and finally determining I was allergic to almost every kind of contact lens,my optometrist referred me to Dr Ernst for LASIK surgery. It was by far the best money I have ever spent! The staff offered information and support but in no way made me feel pressured to go this route. After going through the very thorough pre-op exam, I knew my eyes were in good hands! Dr Ernst was so friendly and great at explaining the procedure. It was very comforting to be taken care of by a staff that worked together like a well-oiled machine. Despite the fact that I was a new patient, everyone made there made me feel like a longtime client that they knew personally! The day of the surgery Nicole put me at ease beforehand, and Dr Ernst and his surgical staff were fantastic and professional. It was especially reassuring to have Dr Ernst explain what I would be experiencing as he was performing the procedure. His call that night to follow up on my surgery and make sure my eyes were okay sealed the deal for me that I would recommend Schein Ernst Eye Associates to everyone! Working in the medical profession myself, I know sadly, that not all Drs take that kind of care with their patients.Thank you so much for giving me the freedom of better then 20/20 vision!!! It is awesome


My LASIK experience was awesome. It is just unbelievable how great I can see after LASIK the very next day.There are no words to describe my vision now, until you actually get it done and experience these outstanding results. It definitely surpassed my expectations and I would recommend LASIK to anyone who has to deal with contacts or glasses. Also, the staff at Schein Ernst Eye Associates were so caring and friendly, it could not have been better. They were so professional and answered any questions I had to help me make a great decision to have LASIK and assured me that everything will be ok even with a slight chance of complications that did make me really nervous. I waited 11 years by wearing contacts and glasses and wished I would have done it sooner, it definetly changed my life forever. Let them change your life now!



Dear Doctor Mishra:

You are appreciated more than you know. God Bless You – I can read without glasses – everything is clear and bright.

Thanks again


I’m very happy that I finally decided to have my LASIK surgery. After years of irritating contacts and a lack of peripheral vision with glasses and bifocals, enough was enough.

I felt very comfortable with Dr. Ernst and the staff at Schein Ernst Eye Associates. They were very knowledgeable and professional. My initial exam was very thorough and I was given all the facts I needed to make an informed decision about my procedure.

On the day of the surgery, I was, of course, nervous, but the staff put me at ease. Everyone was friendly and encouraging.

The procedure itself was a piece of cake. Before I left the office, the staff made sure that I understood the instructions for the care of my eyes that day and for the coming weeks (which were very simple and easy to follow). Dr. Ernst called me later that afternoon to check up on me and to ask if I had any questions.

The most surprising, and best part is that I had much less discomfort than I had imagined. My eyes hadn’t felt that good in years after wearing contacts. My follow up exam the next day revealed that my vision had improved to 20-15. My close up and night vision continue to improve each passing day.

I can’t stop raving about my results to friends and co-workers. I would highly recommend Schein Ernst Eye Associates for those considering LASIK.


My Lasik experience was awesome. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The procedure and care I received was great. The best part was the woman sitting next to me during the procedure. Not only did she offer words of encouragement, she kept her hand on top of my hands while I was clutching your wonderful stuffed fish (toy) the entire time. That was a wonderful thing.


Thank you, Dr. Ernst for a wonderful experience with LASIK surgery. I can read without glasses and drive too with no glasses–simply amazing! From my first phone call with Dawn at your office, I encountered people who were friendly and helpful. My initial exam was thorough and answered all my questions about Lasik. From start to finish, I could not imagine a better experience! The day of surgery was a breeze, with personal attention to my needs, a procedure that lasted only minutes and then I was on my way home with post-op instructions. So simple! I am in awe of being able to see, up close and far away with no corrective lenses. Thank you, again and again!


Dr. Mishra, I wanted to say thank you for everything you did for me, my eyesight is just amazing. I am so pleased with the job you did and how great you and your staff treated me and my family. This is just a dream come true. God has given you a gift that is so remarkable. I would recommend you to everyone. Thank you so much!


I’m 3 days post op, and I’m already recommending Dr. Ernst and your practice in general to friends of mine who have been on the fence about LASIK for years. I could not be happier with my results or my entire experience. I’m writing this mainly to comment on one thing in particular… the phone call I received the night of the surgery. It really Impresses me that the time and consideration is given to patients. I did have a few questions that night and the phone call was well appreciated and surprising!


Dr. Mishra, you performed PRK surgery on my eyes this past summer. As I mentioned to you, I’m in the Army and I’m currently serving a deployment in Afghanistan. I’m writing just to thank you so much as I can. My eyesight, thanks to your treatment, is 20/15 in both eyes. This has had a huge impact on my performance in the military and the overall quality of life. I would just like to thank you again for everything.


Complete satisfaction would be my response if asked about my cataract surgery. From initial consultation to final discharge, it has exceeded my expectations. Dr. Ernst and his staff prepared well and delivered on his promise to provide better vision with multifocal implants. In addition, the entire staff at Grand View Surgery Center were professional, caring and knowledgeable in their responsibilities. I would recommend this experience to anyone in need of better vision due to cataract problems.


For years I was skeptical about having LASIK done. My fears were eased after Dr. Schein & Dawn’s thorough evaluation. The procedure was easy and painless, and after years with glasses, contacts and the hassles that accompany them, to wake up in the morning and see clearly is amazing. I wish I had done it years ago.

After having such a wonderful experience with Dr. Schein and his staff, I would recommend LASIK by Schein Ernst Eye Assoc to anybody! Thanks again for being able to give me my eye sight back!


I perceive Dr. Alan Schein to be a gifted eye surgeon and caring human being. My LASIK surgery on Oct. 21, 2010 for”far” vision empowered me to see better while driving to protect others. Also, to see the wondrous blessings around us. He removed cataracts from my dearest mother’s eyes successfully. Unfortunately, she passed away in 1999 from Leukemia. Her name was Irene Briercheck. Prior to her death, she enjoyed the miracle of better sight through his hands. Thank you from both of us for having the”courage” to restore one of the greatest senses – sight!

P.S. Your caring staff efficiently carried out your intentions beautifully. Much appreciation to them, also of course all of you, have good Karma.


I have had a phenomenal experience under the care of Dr. Mishra and the employees at Schein Ernst Eye Associates. The staff members are very professional and knowledgeable. Everyone is courteous and kind, actually listening and answering questions fully. The office and treatment rooms are very clean and everything is orderly. The procedures are clearly outlined and the patient is given instructions verbally and in writing. The opportunity to speak with staff members are on one in privacy is appreciated. After only one week from my second surgery, I can see better than I can ever remember. I appreciate the care provided.

Thank you.


Going into my LASIK surgery I didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t think it was possible to fix my eyes. When I sat up after the machine finished on me, I immediately, literally couldn’t believe my eyes. Everything I looked at had so much detail that I couldn’t believe it. I see everything from a different perspective now and it has made my life a lit easier. And I have Dr. Schein and his associates and helpers to thank. Before my surgery they did an amazing job in explaining what to expect that I wasn’t nervous when I went in.

One thing that made me even happier than the results themselves was the phone call I received that night from Dr. Schein checking on me. He showed to my family and I that not only does he just do the surgery right, he also cares so much about how your vision really is. I believe that it’s extremely hard to find a doctor that actually checks on you after you left his office. I would recommend Dr. Schein and his team to everyone, they do great work and care for you better and more sincerely than anywhere else. Thank you so much guys….I can see.


My LASIK experience was great, so much more than I anticipated. Needless to say I was apprehensive, but knowing my husband went through the same procedure with Dr. Ernst a few years prior, I personally saw the end results and wanted that for myself as well.

During my initial appointment, the entire process was explained to me step by step as we went through the steps to determine if I would be a candidate for LASIK surgery. The staff (Dawn) made it a very comfortable experience. When confirmed I was a candidate, I was very excited and couldn’t wait for my scheduled surgery day.

The morning of surgery, the staff again made me feel very comfortable and explained the procedure steps. I was nervous, but excited too. While sitting in the waiting room, another patient commented they had just watched the procedure through a window, and I felt impelled to do the same. I had done my homework and read all the brochures and paperwork, but as a person who likes to know all the details going behind the scenes, what a better way to be informed than to watch it firsthand.

It was fascinating to watch; amazing that your whole world can change in a matter of minutes! You literally put your eyesight in the hands of an individual who is virtually unknown to you. But be rest assured, this is where the doctor’s reputation as a highly trained and skilled professional comes into being. Dr. Ernst is a leader in his field, and for my eyesight, I wanted the best. I was very calm, the procedure went without incident and I couldn’t wait to see the world without glasses. It was an unbelievable experience.

A few weeks later, I am extremely happy I had the procedure done and my only regret is that I didn’t have it sooner. Thank you Dr. Ernst, you literally changed my life.


Deciding to have LASIK was one of the best decisions I’ve made. I am so glad that I chose Dr. Schein to perform the procedure. He and his team of nurses were very informative and took the time to make sure I was comfortable, and to answer any questions. More specifically, Dawn was very helpful when speaking of her own experience with LASIK and giving me tops on how to go about my routine while recovering. Dr. Schein’s personal call to me on the evening of my procedure really impressed me. My expectations of the LASIK results and of Dr. Schein and his team were greatly surpassed and I would (and have) recommended them to family and friends.


Dear Dr. Ernst and staff,

I would like to thank all of you for your professional services. You made my LASIK experience a great one. The first time I walked into you Lemoyne office and met Dawn and Dr. Ernst, you guys were very knowledgeable and professional. At that time I knew I wanted LASIK and wanted no one but Dr. Ernst to be my doctor.

Dr. Ernst answered all the questions and concerns I had about LASIK and made me feel comfortable about the surgery. The day of my LASIK procedure I was a bit nervous but Dr. Ernst completed the surgery pain free in minutes.

Dr. Ernst is by far the best doctor I have ever had. I now look at him as my doctor and my friend. I will recommend Dr. Ernst to my family, friends and customers because I know they will be just as happy as I am when they can see great without the need of glasses or contacts. When considering LASIK I don’t recommend you go get confused by other doctors; go to Dr. Ernst and you won’t be disappointed.


Why did I wait so long to have LASIK?!! I was scared!

After 24 years of wearing contacts and glasses, I figured I wasn’t getting any younger and the time was now! Dr. Ernst came highly recommended from two of my friends that had a great experience when he performed their LASIK surgery. As a nurse myself, I was extremely impressed from the moment I walked in the office. Dawn was wonderful – so knowledgeable, friendly and answered my many questions with great detail. She immediately put me at ease!

Dr. Ernst and the surgery staff was great. The procedure was quick and painless, and the staff was very comforting. I’ve had great results – 20/15 vision!! I’m amazed every day how incredible my vision is and how easy the entire process was.

Why didn’t I do this sooner? I had a great experience and highly recommend the procedure and Schein Ernst Eye.

Thank you!!!


I just had my LASIK performed and everyone at schein Ernst has exceeded my expectations. My surgery went well and the results were amazing. I highly recommend Schein Ernst Eye Associates for this procedure. From my first phone call with Dawn and through the follow up with Dr. Schein, I have been very impressed. The only thing I wished I would have done is have LASIK performed years ago.

Thank you very much for the excellent results and impeccable service that I have received.

Joe And Gwen

Dear Dr. Ernst,

We just want to say a BIG THANK YOU to you and your friendly staff for a great job done on Joe’s eyes. He loves being able to see the clock and everything else without extra lenses. It’s wonderful.

Thank you so much for the very special checkup phone call done personally by you. We were so impressed for the call, plus it wasn’t a nurse. It was you. Wow!

Thank you also for the gift of a huge chocolate bar – that was special and we really appreciate the whole wonderful experience!

We will highly recommend you to anyone!


Dear Dr. Ernst,

I have heard your commercials on Wink 104, and I am proud to endorse Schein Ernst Associates to my friends and family. If I was to write a commercial, this is what I would say:

“My name is Joy and I am a patient of Dr. Brett Ernst. I experienced the fine care at Schein Ernst Eye Associates five years ago and I am still telling my friends about it. In fact, several friends and my husband are now glasses free. Wouldn’t it be nice to give yourself a gift that you could have with you every day? I can now enjoy swimming, going to the beach, snow tubing, sports and everyday life without glasses. Schein Ernst Eye Associates was professional and caring from beginning to end. You feel at ease with the staff and know that they care about you. The level of care I received surpassed my expectations. I must say that Dr. ernst is a true blessing and LASIK is one of the best things I have ever done fro myself. Isn’t it time you do something for you? If you want to see great, call Schein Ernst Associates today!”

I honestly cannot believe it has been five years. Thank you for showing what true customer service and patient care is all about. It takes a lot to impress me and I honestly could not be happier.


Professionalism and convenience…. these two words sum up the service I received from Dr. Mishra and Schein Ernst Eye Associates. I waited quite a while to have the LASIK procedure.

I cannot thank Dr. Mishra and staff enough for putting me at ease through the procedure and how well I can see now.


My experience started with a phone call to Dawn to schedule my consultation. She was able to fit me in quickly as I had to travel 2 hours each way for any appointments. Testing and the consultation with Dr. Ernst was very quick, easy, and informative. A bit of time was spent on the issue of monovision versus correcting for distance.

I elected to not have the monovision. The surgery day arrived and all the staff were very helpful in preparation and during the 10 minutes actually in the suite. I would say my experience has been extremely pleasurable even though it was surgery. After more than 35 years of glasses and contacts to see clearly past a few feet I now only use the lowest power reading glasses for smaller fonts. 20/15 in each eye. My only issue is why did I wait so long? Thank you Dr. Ernst and staff.


I was fearful of having Lasik. However, the day of the procedure, the quiet confidence of the surgical team put me at ease. It was clear they had performed the procedure many times as the surgery proceeded in a swift and precise manner. These folks are real”pros”.

I am pleased I chose to have Lasik. My vision is Crystal Clear. Special Kudos to Dr. Ernst and his staff for the best possible eye care. They went above and beyond in the service they provided, and I am so grateful for the quality results I’ve achieved in my vision.


The staff was very professional and courteous, and very good to get along with making the whole LASIK procedure very easy to get through.


It is hard to believe I had LASIK eye surgery three months ago. I am not one to spend money on myself, but this was well worth it. It is definitely life changing! It is amazing how quickly I got out of the habit of putting my contacts in and out.

I was, and still am, TOTALLY impressed with my experience at Schein Ernst Eye Associates. The care I received from Dr. Mishra, Dawn and the staff was remarkable! I personally haven’t had even a minute of trouble with my eyes. The surgery was a breeze, and they talked me through the whole procedure, which was very comforting.

I also enjoyed that my local eye doctor can do my follow-up visits. I now have a lot of jealous friends saving their pennies! Thank you Dr. Mishra for totally changing my eyes…and my life!


I would like to thank you for my outstanding care and experience during my recent visit and procedure for LASIK surgery. I truly appreciate the professionalism and expertise when it came to understanding what was involved with the procedure and what my expectation should be.

My eyes feel great, and it is a pleasure not to wear my contacts or glasses. The procedure was so simple, and I honestly can’t believe it was done so quickly.

As I heal, I will continue to take great care of my vision and be mindful of your explanations regarding results. Thank you again, and I look forward to visiting you with future referrals.


Dear Dr. Ernst,

Many thanks for your outstanding Lasik procedure service… from the professionalism, expertise and skill of you and your team, to the quality of your technology and facilities.

A special thank you to Dawn for guiding me through the process, and the front office and OR team for their excellent customer service.

I will not hesitate to refer others your way in the future.


It was a great experience from the beginning. All questions were answered. I had no pain and am going through the healing process.

Overall I would recommend Dr. Ernst.



That’s the first thing I can say. I never imagined that I would be able to see this well. I always wore contacts and they worked fine but now, after my LASIK with Dr. Ernst, I see so much better. Everything is brighter, clearer, and crisper – I Love It!!!!

From the time I called to the last appointment I had, I was greeted and treated by knowledgeable staff and doctors. Dawn was great at explaining everything so I understood. Dr. Ernst’s sense of humor and experience made me feel very comfortable. Surgery day was a piece of cake – no pain and a lot of gain 🙂

Thanks to all of you.


After considering LASIK surgery for several years, I finally made the decision to have it done. While searching out the many facilities that offer LASIK surgery, a friend recommended Dr. Schein. I had already talked to and visited numerous other offices. I spoke with Dawn (LASIK Coordinator) numerous times over the phone in the following few weeks. She was very patient, understanding, and knowledgeable. I scheduled the first appointment and was very satisfied with the timeliness and treatment I received.

During previous visit to a different eye care center, I felt like they were”pushing the sale” instead of walking me through it. After meeting with Dr. Schein, I feel very assured that this was the place for me to have the surgery.

When I asked Dr. Schein a question, he could not answer immediately. He said he would research it and get back to me. Sure enough, he personally called me with the answer!

The day for surgery finally came and the entire staff was very professional and courteous, and acted in a way that made me feel very comfortable and relaxed. My entire experience with Schein Ernst Eye Associates was fantastic and I would highly recommend them to anyone!

My vision is now better than 20/20.


Words cannot express the thanks I would like to extend to Dr. Ernst, Dawn and the rest of the staff at Schein-Ernst Associates for my recent LASIK experience. You have given me a quality of life I have not known since I was 14 (I am 50). Since Lasik (less than 2 weeks ago) I have enjoyed running a race and a lengthy hike in the woods without any glasses fogging up! That’s a huge deal for me – just to be able to get out of bed in the morning and be able to see the moment you open your eyes – I have to keep reminding myself I don’t need to reach for my eye glasses.

The entire experience was wonderful. Everyone treated me with kindness. I felt very comfortable about my choice for lasik with Schein-Ernst. All my questions were thoroughly answered. The environment always professional and sensitive to all my questions and concerns.

What was most comforting to me was the actual day of the lasik. Everyone was very kind. During the procedure, the team with Dr. Ernst, performed the lasik in a professional and well-paced manner. They were always reassuring to me which made this a very comfortable experience.

Again, thank you. You are awesome!


My LASIK experience went very well. My doctor was Dr. Mishra who is very nice and a true professional. All the doctors and nurses are great. The surgery went well and I felt no pain. The doctors and nurses were calming and understanding. They made me feel comfortable, relaxed and knowing I was in good hands. If I had to do it again, I would in a minute!


Though I haven’t lived in the Harrisburg area in 17 years, I came back on vacation and chose to have Dr. Schein perform LASIK, and I wasn’t sorry! From Dawn’s attentiveness to my inquiries, even while I was overseas, to the entire staff’s friendly nature at each stage, I felt comfortable and confident. The whole process was like a well oiled machine. Everyone knew his/her part and explained clearly whatever I needed to know. Dr. Schein and his staff had the most soothing and reassuring voices in the operating room. Not only did I feel I was in good hands — I was!


I had a wonderful experience with your office and staff; they are a great team of people in your Lemoyne and Harrisburg office. As for the procedure itself, so far so good, it was a great experience. No complaints and I would recommend anyone to any of your offices for anything.

So thanks for the excellent care you have given me.


My LASIK experience in December 2006 was truly amazing. The professionalism and care I received from the staff and doctors made me feel that I was important to them. I was very comfortable and totally confident that I was getting the best care available, they were thorough and aware of all my concerns. Because I was a -12, I anticipated asking a lot of the questions, however Dr. Ernst and staff were a few steps ahead and covered everything. LASIK has literally changed my life, it’s absolutely the best decision I ever made.

The doctors and staff at Schein Ernst Eye Associates are well trained and on top of this procedure; I would recommend them highly. Plus, I was given the best recovery anecdote – CHOCOLATE!

Thank you, Dr. Ernst and Schein Ernst Associates.


My LASIK procedure was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. Truly, this is technology at its best!

Special thanks to Dawn and Stephanie for their professionalism and sense of humor. Dr. Ernst is a tribute to his profession.

Thank you for your dedication and hard work.


Dr. Schein and his entire staff are the best!

My vision is better than I ever thought was possible! Dr. Schein and his staff care about one thing, you! I was completely comfortable from my first visit to the follow up care.

I can see things I didn’t see before. Thanks to everyone who took the time to be the best in the business. Seeing is believing!


Dear Dr. Schein & Staff,

It’s been a month since I had my LASIK and each day is getting better and better. I must honestly say that this is the best thing I have done for my vision! A week after surgery, I was 20/15, and for the first time in twenty-eight years I could see the clock when I woke up.

I want to thank you and your staff, especially Dawn and Stephanie, for taking such good care of me. I believe the patience, time, and care I received at your office was top notch – not to be matched by any office anywhere. I firmly believe I was not just another customer; I was a person that you cared about and wanted to give the best results. Any fears I had were put to rest during the surgery as everyone was supportive and informative throughout the procedure.

I have told all my friends about the procedure and your office, and will continue to do so! Thanks again for all you have done!


Exceptional staff with personalized attention, courteous, polite, and definitely decreased any anxiety I may have had before, during and after surgery.

Thank you Dr. Ernst for the gift of improved vision. This has been a very positive experience.


Dear Dr. Schein & Staff,

All I can say is”Thank You”! It is so wonderful not worrying about contacts and glasses anymore. The LASIK procedure was so comfortable, thanks to your wonderful staff and yourself and it only took 15 minutes! Amazing! I wish I would have done it sooner. I’m definitely spreading the word and would refer anyone to you Dr. Schein. You made my experience less frightening and more enjoyable! you and your staff were very thorough and I would like to thank you for making my life easier and my vision better than 20/20. (I’m 20/15!!!!)


Dear Dr. Ernst,

I just wanted to send a thank you for my LASIK. I absolutely loved it! It’s been a while since I have had it done, but I’m still amazed that I can see without glasses or contacts. I’ve gone to the beach multiple times this year and it’s wonderful to swim, be on the beach or go to the pool without glasses. Rain is no longer a problem and no marks on your nose are also a plus. I think you are an amazing doctor, in fact on of the best. I’ve had to see other eye doctors because of my insurance and none of them compare to you. Thank you so much!


I was very apprehensive about the epi-LASEK procedure. However, all I can say is that the whole experience was wonderful. After hearing all the horror stories, my fears were immediately eased after my initial consultation with Dr. Ernst and his staff. Dawn was very knowledgeable and my consultation showed I was not a candidate for LASIK, but epi-LASEK.

On the day of my procedure, Amy went over everything I should expect during the procedure. As I entered the surgical suite, Stephanie helped me relax and Dr. Ernst began the procedure. Within less than 10 minutes, it was all over and I could SEE!!!! It was awesome!!

Five days later, I am still able to see, but I understand that it takes 2-6 weeks for my vision to stabilize. The discomfort was not at all as bad as I expected. I would do it again tomorrow!

Thank you to all – Amy, Dawn, Stephanie, and Dr. Ernst.


My LASIK experience was very successful and met all of my expectations. Dr. Ernst and staff are very professional, knowledgeable, and patient oriented. Every part of the process was explained in terms I could understand.


My LASIK experience at Schein Ernst Eye Associates:

Absolutely a miracle! I have worn some form of corrective lenses for 41 years, since I was 8 years old. I had a lot of astigmatism ad was very nearsighted….could not see more than 1 foot in front of me! I had great vision with gas permeable lenses but eventually developed intolerance to them and then tried soft lenses with some success. Then I developed a dry eye problem, after getting that problem under control with the help of my longtime eye doctor, Dr. McLin. I finally decided to do what I had been thinking about for years. With the skillful (more than magical) help of Dr. Ernst I do not need any form of correction. I had the mono vision procedure done and love it! I actually had the procedure done in 10/06, and have been marveling since, waiting to wake up from the dream, but it is a reality. The staff at Schein Ernst Eye Associates were wonderfully caring and the procedure itself was done in minutes and I could see the results immediately. I definitely am recommending Schein Ernst to anyone who asks me.


Dr. Alan L. Schein, M.D.

I am writing this letter to thank you and your staff for improving my eyesight better then I could have ever dreamed. It is a blessing to wake up and not have to reach for a pair of glasses or run to the mirror to put contacts in. I commend you for your superior wisdom for details and your precision in your profession. I also commend you for your exceptional professional staff that you have. Everyone that I talked to or came in contact with was very polite and very professional. This contributes to your expertise to details. I know this is very stressful when it comes to dealing with the public especially when you are dealing with ones eyesight and what could happen. I was very nervous because my eyesight is my livelihood, without my eyes, I could not drive. I thank you. Also I want to tell you about three exceptional professional lady assistants that you have working for you. They are a tremendous asset to your practice and they know their jobs very well. They made me feel very relaxed and they contributed to a pleasant experience. They are worth every penny you pay them. If they treat every person that you treat this way, they are worth their weight in gold! You should be very proud they work for you!

The three I am referring to are Amy, Stephanie and Dawn. These three young ladies touched my heart. I would like to show my application by enclosing a gift certificate for a nice lunch. Please allow them to read this and have the gift. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.


It took less than 15 minutes to change my life. For 30 years, without corrective lenses, I could not see two feet in front of me. In order to wrestle with my son, I had to take off my glasses and everything was a blur or colors. I didn’t enjoy going to the pool or the beach because I needed my glasses to see where my son was, but I was afraid I would lose them in the water. And trying to find a dry piece of clothing to wipe my glasses in the middle of a snowball fight was just about impossible.

Dr. Ernst and his staff have changed my life because these problems no longer exist. Every detail of LASIK was explained in terms I could understand and could relate to my family and friends. I researched the technology which is state of the art and I felt very safe knowing every effort for error on my part had been preempted. The fact that some of the staff had personally undergone the surgery was incredibly reassuring. It has been a month since my surgery and I am still in awe of how safe and easy and quick this process has been. I thank God for the abilities and personalities of Dr. Ernst and the staff at Schein Ernst Eye. I can’t wait for my first snowball fight!

Thank you.
