I have suffered with poor vision all my life. When I developed cataracts, I was referred to Dr. Hester. He did both of my eyes. I see better than I ever have. He has a great bedside manner, and was so patient with all my questions. I had no post-op problems. I highly recommend Dr. Hester.

Dr. Hester was recommended to me by a nurse at Baptist Eye Center. I was the supervisor of the Eye Center when it first opened, and the doctors who I had worked with had retired. I knew a nurse would give me the down-low, so I called and asked for a recommendation. He did cataract surgery on both my eyes and I'm very pleased with the results. My vision is now 20/20 and I had no post surgical complications. And to top it off, he has a great beside manner...very friendly!

Dr. Hester has performed cataract surgery on both my eyes in the past month. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Hester, his skills, his manner, his team, and the excellent results from my surgeries. I haven't been able to see this well since childhood! I highly recommend Dr. Hester to anyone who needs eye surgery! He's the best! He has made this whole procedure a pleasant experience from start to finish.

I have been seeing Dr. Hester for 3 years and would not go anywhere else. I travel from Fayetteville, Ar. to see Dr. Hester because I trust his ability. He spends as much time as necessary to be sure you understand your surgery and what will occur during the surgery. I trust Dr. Hester! He is one of the best!

Great New: I can see like when i was 20 now after my surgery.Everything went as it should with no issues & it was a very pleasant experience. Recovery time was a minimum & the whole staff was very friendly and professional.Thanks for giving a 59 year old man the sight of a much younger man.

Dr. Hester is a highly skilled professional. He is cordial, efficient and a miracle worker ! I had toric lens implants. My vision is better than ever before in my life. His staff is excellent, as well.
