Sigh of relief. show details Sigh of relief.
by Andrea W. on Oct 15th, 2013

I was about 53, I was told that I had cataracts. I have had a lazy eye since birth. I saw 4 different Ophthalmologists and none of them would even think about performing surgery on my "good" eye. I had given up hope of getting even my "good" eye corrected. The next year, I saw Dr. Brooks at BAMC IN San Antonio, Texas. When he realized that I was aware of the risks, he told me that he would perform the cataract surgery in each eye. Even with Epilepsy, the surgeries came off without a hitch. Dr. Brooks made me feel so confident in his abilities, I was able to feel at ease during the procedures. Everyone should feel confident in his abilities and care. .

I went in for a cataract evaluation, After seeing so many other Dr's who made you feel like you are a money sign. This office has the best atmosphere and friendly employees you can tell the employees are happy to work there this to me is a great first impression. The time the staff spent with me was so helpful, they are so well informed. This all helped in my decision to have this surgery I am now one Happy camper I can see with no problems and it was a fast recovery. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND

The Eye Surgeon in DFW that Pilots trust their eyes too show details The Eye Surgeon in DFW that Pilots trust their eyes too
by Brendan G on Apr 15th, 2013

As a corporate pilot I depend on my eyesight for both mine and my passenger’s safety in all kinds of weather and lighting conditions. When it came time for me to have a lens replacement I wanted and needed the best possible performance lens in order for me to continue in my profession. After a great deal of searching and visiting the offices of 3 other eye surgeons in the DFW area I was given the recommendation of visiting Dr. Dain Brooks at Brooks Eye Associates from Dr. Danny Malone at Vision Source (see their review for a great general eye doctor). There are several factors that made Dr. Brooks the clear choice for me. At so many of the other facilities I went to felt as though I was stepping into a Crystalens infomercial. I was a number to them and it was a question of how they could pitch me on a particular implant. I am not saying Crystalens is not a good product but is it good for what I want to do? There was little to no discussion on what other options would be available in other multi-focal or accommodating lens or how they would perform based on what I was looking for. Dr. Brooks is unique in the DFW area in that his experience as a military doctor provided him the opportunity to gain vast experience with ALL the intraocular lens implants available on the market today. He took the time…and I mean serious time… (we probably discussed it for the better part of an hour in person) to evaluate all the options, discuss my lifestyle desires and really work through what would be the best for my long term happiness. I felt that we had thoroughly discussed all of the options until I was satisfied and I had realistic expectations of the end result. The surgery went very well and his attention to detail is second to none. You leave feeling that there was no better possible outcome than what you have done which it very comforting. The results were frankly stunning – I am back to 20/20 near and far and back to flying again due in no small part to the talent of Dr. Brooks, his staff and the ability to use the right implant for the right application. The amazing thing is all of this time, talent, and personal attention was over $1000 less than what I had been quoted for the same procedure at a several other local facilities. If you are fed up with arriving at the doctor’s office to be greeted by a sign in sheet with a big sign saying “do not open the glass” then this is the place for you. The attitude that you find with Dr. Brooks extends to his entire staff. Everyone at Brooks Eye Associates goes above and beyond to be helpful and responsive. If I send an email to them I get a response in hours not days or weeks. I had a change in my schedule and they went out of their way to accommodate me and fit me in. I wish I could say that this level of customer service and customer focus is common but it is not so it needs to be recognized. If you are seeking not only one of the best eye surgeons in the metroplex but one of the best customer service experiences look no further than Brooks Eye Associates.
