I saw Dr. Benderson along with my two sons. He is very personable and great with kids too! He makes you feel at ease and explains everything in a way you understand. I recommend him highly. The staff is very friendly and caring as well!
I had a something get into my eye, causing an infection. Dr. Benderson was a life saver. He got me in right away and did a thorough evaluation - he was patient and reassuring. After his treatment, I was literally better by the next day. He and his staff exuded such professionalism and competence. It was an amazing experience. I would recommend Dr. Benderson to anyone who is looking for a top notch, caring Ophthalmologist. I've never been to a better doc than him. He's awesome!

Dr. Benderson performed my LASIK surgery several years ago. I was highly nearsighted with astigmatism. My vision has been 20/15 in both eyes ever since. He is an outstanding ophthalmologist and surgeon and has a great bedside manner.

I an a new patient of Dr. Benderson and go for my routine eye exams and contact lenses. Dr benderson is very nice and helpful. however, his staff is absolutely rude and unqualified. I had some questions regarding my statement and the lady at the front desk proceeded to tell me that she is freaking blind to my balance while not letting me explain myself or even give me guidance to who i can have help me. I have already went to a different dr. dont need to be treated like that!
