Five Stars

I could not be more satisfied with all aspects of my PRK experience with Dr. Belmont. After being nearsighted (+5) for most of my life, it is great to no longer feel blind without glasses. I had always wanted to have laser eye surgery, but did not want to take any risk with my eyes. I would only have the surgery if I found a Dr. that I was completely comfortable with. Afer many years of looking, I finally found the Belmont Eye Center. Dr. Belmont and her staff are everything I had hoped for. For anyone who wants to have laser eye surgery, but is concerned about the risks, I highly encourage you to look into the Belmont Eye Center!!!
