Dr Garrett did both of my parents cataract surgeries. All 4 of their eyes are now better than 20/20. You can’t go to a better place!

Dr. Garrett did my cataract surgery a few years ago. He recommended and put the Toric lenses in my eyes. It was the best decision I have made! I can't believe how clearly I can see colors. I did not know what I was missing! He is a very caring doctor and the staff were great!

I had cataract surgery and was looking for a surgeon who had experience of thousands of cases. Dr Garrett used the new blameless laser for cataract surgery. He is the only one in our area who does so. Great experience!

I recently went to Garrett eye center. We were early by half an hour (we live an hour away). Just after we arrived the doctor went to lunch. We didn't expect to be seen until time of our scheduled appointment. We were just watching tv waiting our turn when the receptionist comes out into the waiting room with the tv remote saying, I have to change this. I said, well that's rude, we were watching that, no response. He came back from lunch. Our appt took literally 10 min.
