Outstanding Doctor and results. Overall the procedure for my cataracts was quick and painless. From consultation to surgery to aftercare was nothing short of pleasant. I would happily refer Dr. Bellotte to anybody.

One of the best decisions I ever made was to have corrective vision surgery with Dr. Bellotte. His entire team are very professional and friendly, it has been a perfect experience. It is absolutely amazing to wake up in the morning and not have to look for your glasses. Thank you!

I was a patient of the Basom Palmer Eye Institute here where I live in Miami for at least 6 years, they have been managing my glaucoma. The quality of care there has been steadily declining and I had to find a new ophthalmologist. My best friend recommended I see her ophthalmologist, Dr. Bellotte here in Boca Raton. It's quite the drive from Miami but it is very worth it. I been on eye drops to relieve the pressure for a while now. Dr. Bellotte performed a laser treatment on my eyes over a month ago and it in itself is a miracle. I no longer need medicated eye drops! I am so happy with the outcome of the laser treatment, Thank You!

I been living with floaters for a couple of years now, it is just a part of getting older but now they are more frequent and starting to really bother me. My wife purchased some herbal floater treatments on Amazon which did nothing but made my urine smell funky. After some research on Google I found Dr. Bellotte. He first gave me a exam and then neutralized the floaters with a laser. I am satisfied with the treatment and very satisfied with Dr. Bellotte's care.

I really appreciate Dr. Bellotte's honesty and professional opinion. I came upon West Boca Eye Center for a second opinion for LASIK surgery to correct my nearsightedness. Dr. Bellotte explained to me in detail that my cornea is too thin and I am not a good candidate for LASIK. Even though I am a little crushed that I can't have LASIK I am glad that Dr. Bellotte was honest, explained everything in great detail, and did not rush me through the exam and questions like the previous center did. If you are looking for a great ophthalmologist or want a professional second opinion on your eyes I strongly recommend Dr. Bellotte.

I had a very good experience all around with Dr. Bellotte and the staff at this center. I recently had surgery to repair a macular hole with Dr. Bellotte and I experienced no pain or discomfort since. The staff at this office were very helpful, caring and nice. I would highly recommend Dr. Bellotte and West Boca Eye Center to all my friends and family in a heartbeat.

Dr. Bellotte is amazing, he goes above and beyond to make sure all your questions are answered and your needs are met. He was and still is my mom's doctor for many years so when I needed a ophthalmologist for my floaters of course I chose Dr. Bellotte.

Dr. Bellotte has been managing my glaucoma wonderfully for over a decade now. He seen first hand my cataract slowly worsening over these last couple of years. Before my eyes became too much of a hinder I had him perform surgery on them to remove my cloudy cataracts and implant new lenses. Needless to say I am overall very happy with the care I always receive from Dr. Bellotte and his staff

I have nothing but the best things to say about Dr. Brent Bellotte and his amazing team. Over the years he has been keeping my macular degeneration in check with regular injections and periodic exams. Last month he finished cataract surgery on my eyes and I could not be happier with the results. Life has dealt me bad cards with my eye health, but I am glad there are doctors like Dr. Bellotte who are exceptionally skilled in eye care and surgery to keep my eye disease at bay. Looking forward to seeing everybody at West Boca Eye Center for many many more years to come. Thanks for everything!
