When I talk about great players, I call them “3-S Men” – super – scintillating – sensational – and I’d utilize that description for Dr. Soscia without hesitation. If I were on TV I’d simply say, “Dr. Soscia is ‘Awesome Baby!’ with a capital A!”
- Dick Vitale
As an optometrist who’s been in practice for 35 years, I’ve referred many of my patients to Dr. Shoemaker for cataract surgery. When it came time for my own vision correction, there was no question about who I would choose to perform my surgery.
- Helen King, O.D.
I wanted only the best doctor to care for my eyes and when I found out Dr. Shoemaker has performed over 100,000 surgeries, I knew he was the right surgeon for me. I no longer experience the inconvenience of glasses and I consider my eyesight a priceless gift.
- David Leadbetter
With the upcoming YES anniversary tour, I feel secure knowing that I’ll be performing without giving a second thought to any visual hindrances because they are now gone forever! The best part is that I feel as though my vision is continually getting better and better every day! It's absolutely amazing and I feel as though I’ve been reborn!
- Patrick Moraz
I believe Dr. Kim is sensational in every professional way and not only is he my trusted ophthalmologist, but I also consider him my friend. I recovered from surgery extremely quickly and now have clear, 20/20 vision, without glasses! I only trust my eye care to Dr. Kim and would highly recommend him to anyone and everyone.
- Tim McCarver
There are people in similar situations as me and I’ve told them, just get it done! I’ve got a name for you – just go!
- Sean Connor
My surgery was extremely successful and I received optimal results. I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome or a better surgeon to perform the procedure. Dr. De Rojas has my complete confidence and highest recommendation.
- Chris Mazzola
Dr. Lahners has performed over 50,000 vision correction procedures; a fact that put my mind at ease. I might be considered a daredevil, but when it came to my vision, I wasn’t taking any risks!
- Nik Wallenda
Now I can see that the sky is blue and the clouds are white; not gray! Today my eyesight is perfect!
- Hugh Brotherton
I was surprised at how easy the entire process was from start to finish. There was no pain and the surgery itself took only minutes. The whole procedure is simply amazing! Choosing Dr. Shoemaker and Center For Sight was certainly the right decision.
- Tony Jacklin, CBE
I've watched Dr. Shoemaker become one of the world's leaders in cataract surgery. Today, he has probably performed more procedures than anyone on the face of the Earth - over 100,000!
- Guy Kezirian, M.D.
Today my vision is perfect and not a day goes by that I don’t think about it. I will be eternally grateful to Dr. Lahners for restoring my eyesight to the vision of my youth!
- Patty Wagstaff
My friends told me, “Graci, Do it! It’s the easiest thing in the world!” Now, I see what they meant!
- Graciella McGillicuddy
Dr. Banker is a fantastic doctor and I would recommend him to anyone. I hope someone else has the opportunity to be healed like I did through his great work!
- Ann M.
I was miserable and discouraged, but upon seeing Dr. Banker I finally received answers about what was going on. It was absolutely amazing - Dr. Banker was able to diagnose my problem immediately upon entering the room; he hadn’t even looked at my eyes yet! Within an hour of taking the prescription he recommended, I was pain-free! I couldn’t be more thankful.
- Sue S.
I was very interested in the technology and it didn’t surprise me that the best technology was available at Center For Sight. In addition, Dr. Lahners has done thousands of this procedure, which gives me a tremendous level of comfort.
- Cliff T.
He told me, you will look very natural, like you just went on a vacation. I just felt that Dr. Fezza understood. I was a little anxious, but I was more excited because I was well-prepared and I really wanted it done. It was wonderful; I feel pretty again!
- Florence R.
My whole experience with Center For Sight has been unbelievably wonderful. I was amazed at the level of treatment available to me. Dr. Soscia explained everything he was doing and I felt cared for. It was surprisingly easy and my vision now is an unexpected gift.
- Laurel R.
Thoughtful. Warm. Human. That says it all. Almost five weeks later, the results are great – amazing, really. I still look like me, still look natural, my face is smooth without looking “done”, and the jowls that bothered me – gone! I put my trust in the right surgeon.
- Barbara H.
Coming to Center For Sight, I immediately connected with with the team on a personal level. Every time I come in, I'm treated as somebody special. They are sincere, dedicated staff members.
- Ken A.
I had a vitrectomy performed to remove those irritating floaters and I am absolutely astounded by the difference in my vision! It was an incredibly effective procedure that resulted in an immediate, dramatic difference in my eyesight.
- Rozalind B.
Dr. Fezza knew exactly how to give me the results I desired and clearly communicated that to me. I knew what to expect and I trusted him, instantly. He has obviously worked with a lot of different faces; he understands the natural contour and structure of the face. He’s not going to steer you wrong. I tell my friends, don’t even shop, just go straight to him.
- Patrice O.
Dr. Kim is extremely professional, answers all my questions, and most importantly, has kept my glaucoma from progressing. He’s a miracle worker!
- Jack A.
Not only do I think Dr. Newman is an exceptional doctor, but he is a compassionate person and it’s evident he truly cares about the health of his patients. His assistants are outstanding, too… I get a warm and welcoming feeling every time I come in.
- Amanda U.
My new vision allows me to engage in my favorite near-mid, distance and far activities: reading, computer work, walking, theater, etc., with NO glasses, regardless whether the activity is near or far. No longer must I reach for the appropriate glasses; no longer do I squint through uncomfortable contact lenses; no longer do I view a world of fuzzy edges!
- Nancy F.
I can’t tell you what a relief it is to no longer feel like I am hiding behind glasses or having to deal with the side effects of contact lenses. My vision continues to be superb. And I would do it again.
- Stephanie W.
There were no surprises, which is always comforting when it comes to your health. My vision today is excellent and I look forward to many years of enjoyable sight without reading glasses. I highly recommend Dr. Lahners and the entire Center For Sight staff.
- John H.
Not only could I see the teleprompter again but everything was brighter, more colorful and exciting, it was like I was seeing all over again for the first time. I can see to read the paper and have distance vision with no glasses and no contacts.
- John Hill
I knew I wanted plastic surgery and had several consultations with other area doctors and I just didn’t feel comfortable. I am very comfortable with Dr. Fezza’s professional advice and conservative approach. He really listens to what you want and then gives his best recommendation on how to accomplish that look.
- Andrea K.
I first noticed I couldn’t read basketball scores on TV anymore. I was apprehensive because I have issues simply putting eye drops in my eyes, but I was quite surprised that the whole procedure was quick and painless.
- Donald L.
I had a wonderful experience at Center For Sight. I thought the initial consult was extremely thorough and I had great confidence in Dr. Lahners and the whole staff, making the decision to have LASIK very easy.
- Jenny H.
To see nature so vividly is extraordinary and almost overwhelming. It is as if I am experiencing a wild new world that did not exist before that is beautiful, alive and vibrant. What a gift that you have given to me.
- Karen M.
I would like to thank Dr. Shoemaker and his staff for the excellent care I received for my cataract surgery.
- Jane C.
