Dr. Lents is a wonderful, knowledgeable and great eye surgeon. He has his staff do a series of multiple eye tests before you see him, and when needed he will even send you to the retina specialist or such if needed. He is on time and will explain what procedures or procedure he attempts to do. I would recommend Dr. Lents to everyone!
