Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Scott McKnight changed my life by recommending Crystalens. I had very poor eyesight, having to wear very thick glasses or a combination of contacts and glasses (because of my extreme astigmatism). After the surgery, 10 years later I still see 20/20 with both eyes with no glasses or contacts. I had never seen the granularity in concrete or other definition until the surgery. My wife and I live in STL and still travel to see Scott for all our eyecare needs. Excellent-highly recommend!!

I am currently under the care of Dr Scott McKnight. He performed cataract surgery on my left eye March 11th. I am very satisfied with his performance, experience and "bedside mannerism" I have had zero problems or complications with my left eye and was able to read 20/20 7 hours post OP with that eye! 3 days later I can see 20/15. Going back March 18th to have the right eye done. Can't wait to see the final results when both eyes are seeing 20/20....or 20/15! Thank you McKnight Eye Center!!!
