I had my surgery done 3 weeks ago and conducted two follow-up exams, and I must say that I am overwhelmed with gratitude toward these people.
I lived most of my life thinking I would never see well. I was legally blind, a -23 in one eye and -21 in the other. I couldn't see more than an inch in front of me. Then I found out about a procedure called ICL. I spent a lot of time researching doctors, as this was a significant surgery. Once I discussed the procedure with Dr. B I knew he would be the one to perform it. He informed me of all my options and made sure I had all the necessary knowledge. He never pressured me, and let me make all my own choices. He was light hearted and made me feel relaxed.

Thanks for making me look picture perfect!
The entire process from start to finish was easy and your staff made me feel totally comfortable. My only regret is not having LASIK sooner!
Dr. Benjamin, you are a gifted surgeon, an outstanding physician, and a wonderful person with a great sense of humor. You have changed my life phenomenally.
I'm glad I finally decided to get LASIK and I'm glad I chose Dr. Benjamin.
Thanks for the thoughtful, professional consultations, the calming and reassuring explanations of my options, and the sure hands during the procedure.
Dr. Benjamin, you are an amazing surgeon with tons of personality and a very special human touch.
I can now read the paper as well as see distance, something I haven't been able to do in 15 years.
Now I can run, swim and snorkel without wearing my glasses or worrying about losing my contacts. Thank you for the life changing experience Dr. B!

I would recommend LASIK and Dr. Benjamin to everybody who suffers with less than perfect vision.
I am sitting back about five feet away from my computer screen while writing this!!
I'm so glad I finally decided to do it! It was a lot faster and easier than I could have ever imagined.

I can see, I can see, I can see and I love it!
Now, I can see anything and everything. It's a miracle!
Little did I realize that the procedure would literally change every aspect of my life. It wasn't like I was previously in a wheel chair and suddenly could walk, but to me that's how it felt.
My LASIK surgery as well as the recovery process went exactly as planned. The results are great. This was a life-changing experience. I highly recommend Dr. Benjamin for anyone who needs a great ophthalmologist. Thank you, Dr. Benjamin!
LASIK Patient Testimonials
WOW! Where should I even begin? My entire experience with the Benjamin Eye Institute has been outstanding from the beginning to end.
My first appointment I came in, all my questions were answered, I met the actual doctor, and developed a great relationship with all the staff. They made me feel well-informed, safe, and cared for. They promptly answered any and all questions and kept a great line of communication open in the 3 months of research I did before deciding on a doctor.
I ended up choosing Benjamin Eye Institute, even at a little higher cost because I felt like they actually cared about me as a patient, and not just for the money they would receive for my procedure. Mayka helped me with all my issues regarding payment and put my mind at ease regarding my first elective surgery.
The day of surgery went smoothly. I was seen about an hour after the scheduled surgery time but I think the doctor was held up taking care of an especially complicated case before mine. In any case, that shows how much they really care! They won't push people or do a job half-way just because of a time slot. Dr. Benjamin actually cares about his patients on a personal level.
Immediately after my surgery, I was a little woozy from the Xanax but I could tell that my vision was already better than it had ever been. The very next morning I was able to drive MYSELF to the follow up appointment and my vision has improved every single day since then. It has been almost 2 weeks and just the feeling of waking up and seeing everything cannot compare to anything else. It is like going from a regular TV to seeing everything in HD. AMAZING I would totally recommend Dr. Benjamin and his staff to anyone thinking about getting LASIK. My experience was outstanding from beginning to end and I would do it over again 100000 times.
A blessed miracle! I've worn glasses since the age of 8 and after my Lasik procedure with Dr. Benjamin, and his superior, informative, attentive and excellent staff, I can experience life without the crutch of always reaching for glasses to simply see. My vision is crisp, clear and so welcome. Thank you Dr. Benjamin, Mayka and the entire staff at Benjamin Eye Institute. I could not be more satisfied. You've changed my life.
Dr. Benjamin and his entire staff are the absolute best. It has been 4 months since my Lasik procedure and I can't even remember what life was like with glasses. Before going in I was slightly intimidated about the process and they made it so comfortable and easy. I truly can't speak highly enough about how they handled and talked through every aspect of the surgery. In a world where good doctors are hard to find, I can honestly say that Dr. Benjamin and his team will be my go-to for any eye-related issues.
I just had the most amazing experience at the Benjamin Eye Institute. My LASIK surgery was flawless and many thanks to Dr. Benjamin and his amazing staff, Lana and Mayka. Within less than 24 hours of surgery I can see better than 20/20 and I'm back to my usual activity. The level of kindness and professionalism is top notch, as well as the state of the art equipment and surgery suite. Anybody who is interested in having the best eye doctor in town should most definitely go see Dr. Benjamin and his staff!
I recently had Lasik surgery performed by Dr. Benjamin, and I am happy to report that I had a terrific experience from beginning to end. At the consultation, Mayka and Dr. Benjamin were very friendly and answered all of my questions thoroughly. It was clear from the start that Dr. Benjamin is absolutely passionate about providing the best care and the best results for his patients. As if that isn't enough, he is completely personable and caring. I felt like I was the only one in the office every time I was there, and I bet all of his patients feel that way.
The procedure was very easy and by the next day I was seeing 20/20 in both eyes (in fact I am seeing 20/15 in my right eye and probably would be in my left as well but chose monovision). I still have a bit of a halo effect, but it has only been 10 days and I am told that it will go away almost completely. I have no doubt that I had the best care available. If you are interested in Lasik but are a bit nervous about having it done, I recommend meeting Dr. Benjamin!
I just want to say that I had my Lasik yesterday. I had been thinking about Lasik for a while and when I finally decided I would do it, I jumped at the opportunity for Dr. Benjamin and his staff to take care of my vision correction. I will say I was so scared during the procedure that I choked a stuffed dog to death, but no other practice could have gotten me on the table in the first place! This morning I had my follow-up and it was amazing to hear that I have 20/15 vision.
There were three reasons why I chose the Benjamin Eye Institute. First, I have friends who've had Lasik and Dr. Benjamin came recommended multiple times, even by people who chose other places to have Lasik done.
Second, when I went in, the staff was extremely professional and friendly. The lab tech was very nice and calming as she performed the preliminary tests for the doctor. While I was panicking inside, she reminded me that first I needed to be a candidate and second, the doctor was among the best. When I met with the Lasik coordinator, Mayka, many of my fears washed away. She explained the procedure to me without any sales pressure and was so patient, I knew right away I'd be a fool to go anywhere else. She was honest with me every step of the way and it was like she read my mind as we discussed my fears. For my pre-visits and surgery, all of the assistants were amazingly friendly and professional. I honestly couldn't ask for more from a Lasik experience.
Third, Dr. Benjamin himself was nice and professional. He had a sense of humor to boot. He is very thorough and has a high success rate with these procedures because he doesn't gamble with the potential dangers. When he found scarring on my retina, he immediately helped me locate a professional to make sure it wouldn't impede the Lasik. Fortunately, it was nothing that could prevent me from having the surgery and luckily my health is fine, too. However, he gets kudos for checking and informing me of something that wasn't caught throughout my entire adult life and for being that cautious and honest.
If you are considering Lasik, Dr. Benjamin should be at the top of your list. Your eyes are very important and the last thing you want is to risk your vision by going to some place that sees you as a number and spits you out when you're done. The procedure for me was stressful and in hindsight, which is now 20/15, going with Dr. Benjamin and his staff was the best decision I could have made!
