    Dr. T is amazing! The consultation was quick, easy, and informative. The surgery itself was a breeze. He made sure to accommodate my busy schedule for my follow up appointments. One year later for my one year post -op appointment, my vision is still better than 20/20. I recommend Dr. T to all my family and friends. He is the best!

    I had Lasek surgery with Dr. Trentacoste 11 years ago and still have perfect vision. After 20 years of glasses and contacts, it was such blessing to have been referred to him. Lasek completely changed my life.

    I have been a patient of Dr Trentacoste for many years. He listens to my concerns and does a very thorough exam. I have referred two co workers to him who tell me they will never go back to their previous ophthalmologist.

    Dr. Trentacoste is an Outstanding professional, ever since the first consultation to assess whether I was going to be an eligible candidate for Lasik he provided the uttermost trust. He came highly recommended by my primary ophthalmologist and also he had performed Lasik for my cousin as well. Dr. Trentacoste is simply the best Dr that you could do Lasik with I went from a -1.75 Myopia to a 20/15 on both eyes I would recommend him as well as his staff, not only that he has a great sense of humor
