Finished my second cataract surgery with Dr. Bellotte two weeks ago. He spent many visits with me determining which lens option is best for my eyes, hobbies and lifestyle. West Boca Eye Center offers all of the newest cataract lenses out. I now have custome multi focal lenses built into my eyes! I am only using OTC readers for very small print. I've been in glasses since age 7 until now! Beyond satisfied with all my care here. Highly recommended!
Dr. Bellotte performed my Cataract surgery using the Cataract YAG Laser. The procedure was very simple and the downtown was minimal. I put off having Cataract surgery for months because I could not find the right doctor. After meeting Dr. Bellotte, he answered my questions and eased my concerns. I scheduled the procedure shortly after. It was very easy and I felt comfortable with Dr. Bellotte. I highly recommend him especially for this procedure.
Dr. Bellotte helped me tremendously with finding the right treatment plan for my dry eye syndrome. After years of seeing different doctors, I felt like none them listened to my concerns or answered the questions I had. When I met Dr. Bellotte, he spent time going over my symptoms, the treatments I've tried already and the steps we were going to take next. He also answered all my questions. I was very impressed with his bedside manner as well as his staff. I highly recommend him.

As a suffer of Macular Degeneration my case may seem hopeless. I feel that most doctors would not take as much time with someone who has my condition. Dr. Bellotte spends time with me and gives me recommendations on how to better manage my symptoms. His explanations are detailed and he makes sure I understand everything before I leave. I appreciate his bedside manner. His staff is also very welcoming and make each visit a smooth process.
I had a great experience having the Lasik procedure done through West Boca Eye Center. Dr. Bellotte's wonderful staff, experience, understanding and patience is what led me to proceed with the procedure. He explained everything thoroughly and made sure I was comfortable every step of the way. No regrets about having the procedure. Definitely worth it for all of you who have doubts about going through with Lasik.

Thank you for taking such great care of my eyes. I am forever grateful!
in Lombard, IL |
Dr. Bellotte was able to give me a same day emergency appointment. I was experiencing serious problems with my eyes while on vacation. West Boca eye center scheduled me an appointment right away. Dr. Bellotte told me how to manage my symptoms which allowed me to enjoy the rest of my vacation.

Dr. Bellotte saved my vision. I have worn thick glasses my entire life and I slowly lost my ability to drive at night. It became so bad that I could no longer pick my grandson up from soccer practice. Dr. Bellotte explained to me that I have healthy eyes. He made me feel better by explaining that we all get cataracts if we are lucky enough to live long enough. I had cataract surgery on both on my eyes and I don't even wear glasses. Much appreciation to the West Boca Eye Center team!

Dr. Bellotte has been treating my glaucoma the past 2 years since moving from New York. When I started with him I was putting in over 6 prescription drops for glaucoma a day. None of them were not working and irritated my eyes very badly. Dr. Bellotte offers the newest and safest treatments available; between laser and my recent cataract surgery I am now off all of my drops and my eye pressure has never been so low!!! I owe him my life!!
in Boca Raton, FL |
Recently moved to Florida from California and was looking for a new eye doctor. Referred to Dr. Bellotte from a neighbor who spoke very highly of him and his office.

I'm am very grateful to have established a new eye doc here. Highly recommended!

My doctor in NY said I needed eye muscle surgery to correct my double vision. My daughter insisted I get a second opinion with her doctor, Dr. Bellotte. Sure enough he was able to fix my problem with a new pair of glasses with something called prisms built into them. I'm forever grateful to both my daughter and my doctor.

Before I saw Dr. Brent Bellotte, my eyelids were hanging over my eyelashes and getting in the way of seeing both my grandkids and playing my Candy Crush. After my eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty); not only can I see again but my eyelids look AMAZING!
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
My visit at West Boca Eye center was easily the most thorough eye exam I've have since moving to South Florida. Dr. Bellotte and staff explained everything in detail and did not rush me through any questions I had at the end. My previous eye doctor was pushing me to get surgery but West Boca Eye Center treated my dry eyes and updated my glasses and now I am seeing 20/20 and can hold off on surgery for many more years! Highly recommended!
in Coral Springs, FL |
Amazing surgeon...I have never seen better. The office and staff take professionalism to a new level. Thank you!
in Pompano Beach, FL |
I went to Dr. Bellotte for an eye exam. He was very nice. I needed to have my glasses checked to see if they were still right or needed to be changed. Dr. Bellotte had one of the girls in his office do the refraction. I left with the results .Took it and had them made . Went to pick them up and could not see at all. They had asked me when I dropped the info off about the right eye being so different. His office would not return calls, money wasted. Get prescriptions for glasses another place!!
in Boca Raton, FL |
I had an eye emergency and saw Bellotte. I was asked to sign an "arbitration" agreement, which I refused. I was seen by the doctor. Today, I went for a follow-up. As soon as I told my them my name at the front desk I was told I MUST sign the arbitration agreement. I again refused and left. I was then told that Bellotte would not see anyone unless the arbitration agreement is signed. WHAT EYE DOCTOR NEEDS AN ARBITRATION AGREEMENT UNLESS THEIR WORRIED ABOUT GETTING SUED? I'LL FIND ONE THAT ISN'T!
Delray Beach, FL |
I developed conjunctivitis in both eyes during my stay in the hospital. It took us 2 wks to get an appointment and then a 2 1/2hr. wait to be seen by the Dr.. He was polite, but definitely rushed.
