Dr Cervantes was recommended to me for my cataract surgeries, and am I glad! Not only are my results great for both eyes, but he is so friendly and empathetic that I was much calmer than I would have been otherwise. Also, in the office before and after the surgeries, he answered all questions very clearly and patiently. Never made me feel like any question was stupid. He gives off a kind and happy vibe. His office staff were also very professional and friendly. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing cataract surgery.

In November Dr. Cervantes performed successful cataract surgery and a partial cornea transplant on my right eye. In May 2021 he performed the same surgery on my left eye. My vision and quality of life have improved! I only require readers and a good pair of sunglasses. Thank you Dr. and Staff.

Recently had cataract surgery performed by Dr. Cervantes. His manner is friendly and outgoing. Results were fantastic. Seeing colors I have not seen in years and really like the fact that I no longer wear glasses, except for reading.

I couldn't have more positive things to say about having my Lasik surgery performed by Dr. Cervantes and his team. The competence of everyone in the office couldn't be more apparent, and it is very reassuring before a surgery. The results are 10/10. I was actually having a pretty minor prescription corrected and I can't believe I waited so long, the difference is incredible. The day after the surgery I saw a hawk way up high and saw the sun move across it's back as it turned, just unbelievable stuff. Best money I've ever spent, and if I did it again I'd do it with Dr. Cervantes. Dr. Cervantes runs the appointment where he evaluates if you're a candidate for Lasik differently from both other providers I interviewed; he splits the appointment into 2, with the first part a really preliminary screening which is free and then the more comprehensive appointment where he dilates your eyes that you pay for, but the payment goes towards the surgery if you go through with it. This is all bec

I had a great experience with Dr. Cervantes! He performed LASIK on me and my sight is better than it has ever been. He explained everything about the procedure and made me feel very comfortable before, during, and after. His staff is also excellent and they worked with the Doctor like a well oiled machine during the actual procedure. Great job and thanks to Dr. Cervantes and his staff!

My eye doctor referred me to Dr. Cervantes for cataract surgery and although his office is some distance from me, I am so glad I took his advice. Dr. Cervantes and his staff are wonderful, responsive, competent and professional and after two cataract surgeries, I couldn't be happier. Highly recommended!

They are also very friendly and go to great lengths to make their patients comfortable. I couldn’t be happier with the process and outcome of my cataract surgery!

Just the thought of having a doctor operate on my eyes gave me the willies. But it finally become apparent that I have cataract surgery. I made several inquiries, and Dr. Cervantes' name kept coming up followed with words like...a great eye surgeon, easy to talk to, kind and caring. And it turned out, that he is all of those. The surgery was easy. Even the staff is wonderful. When I had a slight issue, I was able to get an appointment the next day. Having one's eyes operated on is a scary business, but Dr. Cervantes made it easy. I highly recommend him.

I had cataract surgery on both eyes in the past two weeks and have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Cervantes, his staff and the Surgery Center of Fairfield County. Dr. Cervantes is warm, friendly and very skilled. He explained everything in a clear way and answered any and all questions. His staff is welcoming and courteous and the office is very well-run and organized. The surgery center staff was also extremely caring and friendly and made me feel well taken care of. I am so pleased with the outcome and highly recommend Dr. Cervantes.

I would most certainly recommend Dr. Cervantes for anyone needing cataract surgery. Not only is he very adept and skilled at what he does, but he also is very warm and engaging. He listens well and answers all questions you may have. I am still amazed at how well everything went with both of my surgeries and with the very excellent result I received. He guided me as to what type of lens replacement would work best for me, as I had had mono vision lasik surgery over 15 years ago. I could not be more pleased with the results. So happy that I found Dr. Cervantes!

I would highly recommend Dr Cervantes and his office staff. I recently had cataract surgery on both eyes, left eye on 10/28 and right eye on 11/20 and my experience was very positive. From my initial consultation I found the office staff to be professional and courteous. Dr Cervantes fully explained the procedure and what options were available. Every interaction with Dr Cervantes and his office were very positive. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Cervantes to my family or friends.
