Extremely professional, knowledgeable and cares about his patients.

I have had poor vision with extremely bad astigmatism my entire life. When I developed cataracts, I was given a new life! Dr. Christian Hester and his staff to the rescue. The admissions, assistants, scheduler, Annie, the entire staff was kind and professional. Dr. Hester was so charming, kind, HONEST, and professional. He explained what he wanted to do for my eyes, and we hoped the results would be good vision with the least bit of astigmatism. Results: 20/20 in both eyes with NO ASTIGMATISM

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 is a professional who is extremely well trained in his specialty. He is meticulous and has great bed side manner. All in all he is a conscientious physician.

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.
