Dr. Cervantes is a caring, compassionate, and highly skilled doctor. He' is extremely knowledgeable and willing to answer any and all questions regarding whatever procedure he will be performing. I have Furchs' Corneal Dystrophy and he performed a cornea transplant on my left eye. Within 5 days, my vision was returning and much improved. In addition, Dr. Cervantes performed cataract surgery on both of my eyes. I am extremely pleased with the results and recommend him without hesitation!!!

Dr. Cervantes was recommended to me for my PRK surgery and I've already recommended him to friends who were considering PRK or LASIK. Dr. Cervantes went out of his way to explain the different options available and encouraged questions about the procedure or any concerns I might have. He was very personable and was able to put me at ease thoughout the procedure and all other appointments.

Dr. Cervantes is one of the best and most personable doctors I have ever had. He has performed cataract surgery on both of my eyes and both times the experience was easy, explained thoroughly and produced no ill effects. I highly recommend him, his staff and the Opticare center in Waterbury.
Visited Dr. Cervantes for cataract concerns six years ago. At that time he identified that they were starting to develop in my eyes but suggested we monitor the situation and not rush to surgery until absolutely necessary. Lens replacement became necessary this spring. he did an excellent job explaining process and options. The surgery was uneventful (always a good thing) and the corrective results were perfect. He has a great demeanor and recommend him wholeheartedly.
