My cataract surgery was an excellant experience. He has given me my sight back free from corrective lenses. The colors are brilliant. As far as an eye surgeon he is certainly one of the best! My eye care is in expert hand with Dr. Jackson. Yours can be too!

Dr Jackson has an excellent reputation as being one of the best Optomologist and eye surgeons in the Chicagoland area.I have had Lasik surgery in my 40's and now both cataracts have been removed in my 70's. Besides myself, many of my friends are his patients. I feel confident that I can trust him completely to always do what is best for my eyes. I am very satisfied and I highly recommend Dr Mitchell Jackson.

Dr Jackson changed my life. I wore bifocals for 25 years and eventually developed cataracts in both eyes. Dr Jackson removed my cataracts and implanted "Forever Young" corrective lenses. Now, my vision is fantastic in both eyes. I don't need bifocals or expensive prescription sunglasses any more. I highly recommend Dr Mitchell Jackson.

I would recommend Jacksoneye to anyone. He is very talented and I honestly wouldn't trust my eyes to anyone else.

I had cataract surgery at age 50 and was talked into an expensive curved lens that would help me see near and far. I wish I never had the surgery! My first surgery on left eye went smoothly the next didn't. I felt pain during procedure. The dr hopped quickly between patients...I felt part of a "cattle call" I eventually suffered a detached retina and my repair of it didn't go well because of the type lens. I've had a miserable year of numerous procedures and now have glaucoma

Very knowledgable in his field. Dr. Jackson takes the time to get to know his patients and explains what he is going to do help remedy the problem and fix it. Others doctors I have spoken with say Dr. Jackson is one of the best in his field. That being said follow up from surgery was just as excellent as the initial consultation, testing, and surgery. Dr. Jackson and his staff are very methodical in their treatment of patients and the written information by Dr. Jackson's office. Would recomm.

Dr. Jackson actually listened to my problem, diagnosed it on my first visit (which is something my previous eye doctor couldn't do) and successfully repaired it. I haven't seen this well in over 5 years!! I would absolutely recommend Dr. Jackson to anyone!!
