Vision Correction Testimonials

Testimonial of the Month

Bennett & Bloom Eye Centers found and corrected an eye problem that NO ONE else could find. I have been wearing glass all my life, now I am free of glasses and can enjoy walking in the rain without covering glasses. Started wearing glasses at age of 9 and am now 77. Way to go Bennett & Bloom.

Finally took the plunge and had LASIK. I had a friend who had the procedure done by Bennett & Bloom almost 15 years ago and has had no issues, so when my eye doctor listed them as a choice I knew where I was going. Great decision because the staff was super friendly and helpful and Dr. Millin was awesome. I should have done this a long time ago.

I had LASIK using the Wavefront technology three days ago. I was so excited and nervous that the staff at the Laser Center were delighting in my antics as I waited for my turn. I was told during my evaluation a week prior that I could expect 20/40 vision, or at least as good as my glasses gave me, and I was hoping for that target. To make matters more difficult, I had very high astigmatism. Astigmatism that caused me eye muscle fatigue and pain my whole life.

The procedure was painless and my doctor was great at explaining and guiding me through the entire process. The first day was a little blurry but waking up the next morning was miraculous. Here is the best part: I went for my follow up appointment that day and found that my vision is now 20/15!!!!

I love you guys at Bennett & Bloom.

Thanks for the love and professionalism and support! D.M.

I just wanted to send a quick note of thanks for the care I received. Having LASIK was an amazing opportunity and I really appreciate all the time and effort given to me. My vision is perfect! I am also appreciative of being given a great experience to relate to my future patients. Thank you so much! Dr. B.B.

I just wanted to send blessings to all for letting me see again, and your caring for me. It feels so good to be able to wake up in the night, look at the clock, and see the time without putting glasses on to see. Bless all of you.

With love, S.S.

I had LASIK done almost 2 months ago and I recommend it to everyone. My doctor was so great during the procedure and I felt so comfortable during the whole thing. I love that you can pick your own music to listen to during the surgery. That was really cool. The procedure didn’t hurt at all. The only thing that bothered me were those bright lights shining down on me but that is a small price to pay for perfect vision. After the surgery, I felt no pain and rested the entire day, which gave me a day off from mommy duties. My eyes are no longer dry and it is great waking up in the morning and just getting dressed to go somewhere. I don’t have to mess with those annoying contacts that take up half the morning to put in!

So if you are wondering if you should get LASIK or not and if you are scared, don’t be and go to Bennett & Bloom. I was scared too but it’s nothing!

Thank you so much!!!

Sincerely, A.H.

I wanted to go an extra step in complementing your practice. I am the biggest chicken regarding my eyes. I have never worn glasses or had any type of eye problem. I have been seen by other providers in the past for an annual exam and the experience was less than desirable.

…The experience in your office was fantastic from the beginning to the end. The technician who did the initial exam was patient and kind. She designed the exam around me as an individual. The ophthalmologist continued the exam with the same care and concern. They even told me I was a “good patient.”

Anyway, in this world when so many times we only hear about the times we have fallen short, I wanted to let you know that you soared! I feel confident in your care.

Thanks Again!

Sincerely, L.S.

I just wanted to take a minute to let you know how thoroughly pleased I am with the surgery you performed. It’s unbelievable to be able to see so clearly and not wear glasses (of course, I’m using readers!!). So many times I have mentioned, I wonder what it would be like to get up in the morning and be able to see. Now I know the feeling. Again, thanks so much. You have truly made a difference.

Best regards, C.F.

PS: And thank all of your staff who were incredibly thoughtful, kind, and efficient.

Last night was the first good clear night of the summer and so my first chance to view the night sky with my new eyes (cataract surgery in May & June). I have not been able to see the sky this well since I was a kid.

Please let the doctor know how pleased and grateful I am. Thanks, F.R.

Thanks so much for all you did yesterday!

Please convey my sincere thanks and appreciation to the doctor and the entire staff. I don’t remember everyone’s names, but I do appreciate the care with which I was handled. All of you were great and it was wonderful to wake up this morning and be able to see my alarm clock.

Thanks again, R.A.

I went to four of your locations and I have never seen this kind of excellence – rarely at 1 or 2 locations. Your people made my procedure relaxing beyond my expectations.

Thank you. J.H.

Explained the procedure well. Really tried to match procedure with my problem instead of overselling additional procedures I didn’t need.

Everyone was very caring. I did not feel like just another patient but was made to feel like the only patient. Some people asked what name I use and then personalized the experience by continuing to use my nickname. Very professional and optimistic staff. L.M.

This surgery is the best thing I have ever done! The staff is wonderful! Everyone relaxed me and helped me – made me feel safe.

I found your practice to be extremely thorough and efficient and at the same time very friendly and caring. I had a very positive experience. H.B.

The genuine friendliness and interest shown to me by every member of your staff. Seeing clearly, without glasses or contacts for the first time since I was 9 years old is my very favorite part of Bennett & Bloom! K.M.

Staff is extremely helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. The doctor’s surgical bedside manner was the best I have ever enjoyed or experienced.

The results upon waking the next day. I could actually read the shampoo bottles in the shower. I was also surprised at how little time it took to make such a wonderful impact on my life. B.T.

Good friendly staff-Doctor was very confident and made me feel like I was in good hands. J.O.

I was able to get appointments quickly-both for the evaluation and surgery. I was well prepared for surgery because of all of the preliminary information that was provided. C.M.

Everyone both at the Dupont Circle office and the Laser Center were very courteous and helpful. All of my questions were answered thoroughly and my apprehension was calmed. I appreciate the excellent level of professional care that I received. My whole experience was positive-I wouldn’t change a thing. S.M.

My experience and surgery was a pleasant one, from the thorough examination to the professional and friendly staff. During the examination and surgery we were made to feel as comfortable as possible. My mother came along to assist me and you even made a good impression on her. She is now considering the LASIK process as well. Thanks to you, my vision is now 20/20 and my experience was wonderful. S.R.

Everyone is caring and helpful. This made me feel more comfortable choosing your practice for my surgery. The doctor talked me through the surgery and helped me feel as at ease as I could be, under the circumstances.

Everyone was very caring. I did not feel like just another patient but was made to feel like the only patient. Some people asked what name I use and then personalized the experience by continuing to use my nickname. Very professional and optimistic staff. L.M.

Thank you so much for my gift of sight. I have adjusted well to the monovision. Thanks for your advice and your skill. I’m still amazed weekly when I wake up at night and can see the digital clock.

Thanks again. Dr. C.C.

The GREAT news is that at my 1-week check-up my eyes were both 20/20 individually and 20/15 with both eyes open. I had absolutely NO problems post op, except my wife did not think the nighttime goggles were very sexy.

Thanks again for all that the staff and doctor have done. It is a miraculous experience…I am very grateful for all of the years of hard work, study, and sacrifice that they have put in to achieving this ability of changing people’s lives. I know that in my legal practice it has been discouraging at times. But then you can have a truly positive impact on a person or family, it is well worth the effort.

I praise God for the blessings that he has given me thru you and everyone else at Bennett & Bloom. I pray that there will always be people willing to work so hard to provide such great benefits & blessings to others.

Gratefully, K.J.

I recently had LASIK surgery and it was one of the best choices I have ever made, my vision is wonderful! I was able to watch TV later that night. The doctor and the ladies at the surgery center were wonderful and made me feel very comfortable. I will recommend Bennett & Bloom to anyone wanting eye surgery done.

Sincerely, A.S.

All I can say is ITS A MIRACLE!

I’m 37 and I’ve worn glasses since 1st grade and contacts since high school graduation. I went from 20/400 vision to 20/20 in 20 minutes! I can’t believe it!

No more blurry mornings or tripping over toys to get to a crying child in the middle of the night. No more swimming with goggles for fear of losing my contacts or getting that dried out feeling that chlorine does to them when the kids splash in your face. No more cleaning the contacts or the constant cost of daily wears, etc etc etc etc.

When I got my contacts I thought that was the next best thing to bread. What a difference from glasses. But that’s nothing compared to actually having eyes that work without assistance of contacts or glasses…This beats any retirement plan I ever invested in.


I am very, very pleased with the outcome of my LASIK procedure. My vision is better now than it was with glasses. I am totally elated. I have been talking to several people I work with here at Publishers Printing Company that are interested in LASIK, and I am recommending Bennett & Bloom highly. I want to thank the doctor and his entire staff. Everyone was very helpful and courteous in the way I was treated and answering all my questions.

I want to thank all the staff for their support and kindness that I received from their offices. I have a few friends who are interested in getting this procedure done in the future. I tell them go see Bennett & Bloom- they are the best in Kentucky and Tennessee that I know. Again I owe thanks to first God and then your staff for this miracle of sight.

Thanks again. G.P.

I am absolutely thrilled this morning! I had LASIK surgery yesterday afternoon and slept most of the evening. When I woke up this morning I could see the clock! I can see all the street signs and I am thrilled. I feel very emotional about this as I have been wearing glasses/and or contacts since the 4th grade. I want to thank you and your staff for the very pleasant experience. I knew exactly what to expect every step of the way. I will recommend your practice to everyone I know who is interested in the surgery.

Have a wonderful day! Thanks for everything! M. T.

I just wanted to send a quick note to thank you and the rest of the staff for my successful LASIK surgery! I am very pleased with the results and marvel every day at how great it is to wake up and see clearly! My only regret is that I didn’t have this done sooner. I have recommended Bennett & Bloom to several acquaintances and have bragged about the personal care that I received on the day of surgery.

A special thanks to you for your kindness!

Sincerely, K.B.

I was more than happy to send my daughter for the incomparable gifts of sight – she is thrilled with her results, as I am with mine. I feel about twenty years younger! S’wonderful!

Again, thanks! S.M

I am writing this letter to thank you for the excellent care, consideration, and results that I obtained from my LASIK excimer laser surgery last week…You displayed professionalism and skill that made this delicate operation a success…

The doctor and all of his friendly staff prepared me completely for the operation, and what to expect at every step – before, during, and after the procedure. I was given paging numbers, reminders, fax maps, and appointment cards to insure any question I had could be attended to instantly. The operation was painless (as I was assured it would be), quick, and as pleasant an experience as one could expect while having his eyeballs tinkered with. Relaxing background music served to reduce my anxiety, and to give my doctor and his team rhythm. When my friends and acquaintances ask me how my surgery went, I have a one-word answer:


There’s not much in life that is perfect, but I wanted nothing less than that for my sight. When I awoke the morning after the operation, it was as if a miracle occurred. I could see plainly and clearly for the 1st time in 35 years. I played golf late that afternoon, and tennis the day after – and saw the ball better than ever. I hope that you will offer this letter to any patient considering the operation as a testimonial to your skill and care. Thanks very much for your efforts.

Regards, G.D.

Please accept my long overdue thanks for your help & support before and after my LASIK…Thank you for your patience, follow-through and good humor as I edged my way toward doing the procedure. Your knowledge and assurances made me feel very taken care of…

I hope you’ll call if you’re in New York, and at the very least, I look forward to seeing you on our next visit to Kentucky.

Thank you and more thanks!

I am truly and utterly amazed at how today went! It was not only fascinating, but painless, fast and downright remarkable! I slept until about 7 PM, and when I opened my eyes, put in my drops, and walked around the house, I was in shock! I have been reading everything at a distance I can! My boyfriend thinks I’m insane! By the way, he thought it was a must-have photo op when I slipped on my stylish goggles to go to sleep! Thanks so much for allowing me to have this incredible opportunity to represent such an amazing doctor and staff!

I appreciate my eyesight! I think of writing you often to tell you how much I appreciate the difference you’ve made in my life. It is so wonderful to be able to see so comfortably at all times of day/night and in all places. I recommend LASIK to you guys to anyone who will listen!

Thank you, A.W.

Thank you so much for my eyesight! I am so happy that I can see the world without glasses or contacts. The surgical staff was so pleasant and cheerful that I felt like I was at a party. I especially liked the nurturing aspect. Thoughtful acts such as putting a pillow under my legs and letting me hold the beanie baby really made me comfortable…Thank you for making me feel special while entrusting you with my eyes.

May God bless every one of you for doing such a wonderful job!

Sincerely, B.C.

I would like to thank you for restoring my vision after recent LASIK surgery. Understanding some of the possible side effects, I am extremely grateful for your expertise in this procedure! I experienced very little discomfort (no pain) and am truly amazed at how well I can now see (without glasses)!!!

Although your superb reputation preceded you, I can now tell others through personal experience, “You’re the best!” I can’t thank you enough!!!

Sincerely, B.C.

More than 2 years after my laser surgery, I am still in awe of my eyes and I am still talking to everyone about the procedure and spreading your good name. Thanks so much for everything – especially the gift of good vision!

Fondly, C.J.K.

Thank you so much for helping me to see the world in a whole new way! Having my eyesight is really a dream come true. I will never forget you for making it possible for me. Of course, your Executive Director of Refractive Surgery made the whole experience a pleasure and a joy. Really, everyone at Bennett & Bloom Eye Centers treated me so well, you should be proud.

I am so happy that I can see so well and I want you to know how much I appreciate what you have done for me. I will think of you when I’m seeing all the things that I have been missing all these years!

Sincerely, K.A.

I wish to give you my heart-felt thanks for the gift of LASIK you gave me! The results are fabulous! I still find myself thinking I have contacts in when I go to bed, only to remember I haven’t worn contacts in 10 years and that my vision is the result of your excellent surgery. I am currently 20/20 in my right eye uncorrected and 20/15 in my left eye uncorrected. I had recovered sufficiently two days post-op to do retinal laser photocoagulation surgery and have done wonderfully ever since…I mention my surgery to any and all who have questions and relate how pleased I am with the result…As my partner and I consider starting a refractive surgery practice for our patients, the magnitude of your gift to me has become apparent…the result of the surgery is fantastic. Again, my heart-felt thanks.

Sincerely, J.B., MD

The doctor’s confidence inspired me…The staff at Bennett & Bloom Eye Centers was super nice…I do swift water rescue and no longer have to worry about my contacts being lost…I didn’t realize I was a slave to my contacts until I had LASIK!… I wish I had done it years ago!!

Christopher Aponte, Firefighter

The staff at Bennett & Bloom Eye Centers is wonderful!…All of my questions were answered before I had LASIK…I was nervous before my surgery, but the doctor talked me through the entire procedure and made me feel at ease…I have no more worries about contacts…I’m seeing well – my vision is clear and crisp…Don’t be hesitant to have vision correction – it’s a small miracle!!

Kris Floro, Flight Attendant

I felt confidence in Bennett & Bloom with my first phone call…the doctor and crew were wonderful…My procedure was quick and painless – easier than a trip to the dentist…I absolutely love not wearing glasses or contacts!…I love not having to half-close my eyes in the wind to guard against getting something in my contacts…The first thing I did when I arrived home after LASIK was gathered up all of my contact lens paraphernalia and ceremoniously pitched it into the trash!…I feel that I’ve been part of a technological miracle!!

Cindy Adair, Teacher

The professionalism of the staff members along with the doctor’s superior outcomes were the deciding factors in choosing Bennett & Bloom Eye Centers – it was a ‘no-brainer’ for me…I was informed about the procedure in detail…It’s a real joy to not have to fight with glasses and contact lenses!…I can play with my kids without the worry of broken glasses of lost contacts…Go see Bennett & Bloom eye Centers ASAP – you won’t regret it!!

Dennis Conard, MD, Physician

I felt so at ease during my procedure…The staff explained everything to me and I knew what to expect…LASIK has totally changed my life!…I no longer have to find my glasses to make it to the bathroom in the morning!…Have it done!!

Vicki Townsend, Bank Branch Manager

Before LASIK I couldn’t see very well without glasses…When I woke up in the morning everything was fuzzy…My eye doctor highly recommended Bennett & Bloom…The doctor and his staff were very professional…The procedure was simple and did not take very long…I can now see better that I have in 17 years.

Carrie Kanani, Attorney

Thank you for doing an outstanding job! My “new” eyesight is truly amazing. I appreciate the way you and your staff made the LASIK experience exciting and most of all, made me feel very comfortable. Keep up the good work!

Thanks again. T.S.

Just wanted to thank you for all your help prior to and during my LASIK surgery. I greatly appreciated your concern and time in answering my questions & working with me to talk with the other UPS pilot.

I’m so happy with the outcome! My one week check was great – 20/20 in each eye & 20/15 together! AWESOME!

Thanks again! S.J.

Just a note & small gift to show my appreciation for all you have done for me before, during & after my surgery! Your presence & confidence gave me the calm reassurance needed.

Thanks again! C.B.

Thank you for arranging my LASIK surgery. Everything went so smoothly. Also, thank you for your encouragement and support. This will make a big improvement in my life. K.G.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and your great staff for the wonderful job you did and making my surgery so easy. I’m doing great…and my sight is now 20/15! I’m still adjusting to the reality of no contacts or glasses. Thanks again.

Best wishes, P.G.

Thank you! I just wanted to say how I appreciated meeting you prior to my LASIK surgery & for your excellent care during the surgery. At my one week check I’m 20/20 in each eye & 20/15 with both. As I go to fly next week I will be doing so as a new person. i can see without help!

Thanks! S.J.

Thank you again for the enhancement surgery on my right eye. Now, I do not need glasses or contacts for reading or for when I work. Also, say thanks to your staff. They are great! L.B.
