Dr Knowles was best decision made. I had 2 different procedures with him. He is wonderful. Dr Knowles explained everything before, during and after. He was very calming and took the time to answer questions, worries or concerns. His staff are very warm and knowledgeable.

Dear Doris, Sorry for a late reply online - I only recently learned that I can reply via this website. Our staff and I have tried to identify and contact you regarding your experience, but we have been unable to do so. If you had an unsatisfactory experience, I am sorry and I definitely want to know as many details as possible so we can continuously improve the patient care we provide. Please call our office (937.427.2020) and I would be happy to speak with you. Dr. Knowles

Dr. Knowles and the entire staff at Stahl Vision, that I encountered, were wonderful, helpful and professional. Like a lot of people who have put off having any Lasik procedure, I too waited but after having the procedure I'm sorry I waited so long. I'm still amazed at my vision and it has only been three weeks. Would highly recommend Dr. Knowles and Stahl Vision.

Dr. Knowles and the entire staff at Stahl Vision were AMAZING!!! It has been the best customer service and medical experience I have ever had. I've been wanting to do it for years but always talked myself out of it. I finally had enough of glasses and contacts so had PRK done three weeks ago. Never had a bit of pain or discomfort!!!!! Best decision I've ever made! Thank you Dr. Knowles and Stahl Vision for giving me my sight back!
