Dr Gillette gave my mother her eyesight back. She had seen 3 other corneal specialist and only dr. Gillette suggested an artificial cornea for her very complicated situation. She went from seeing shapes to 20/30! I cannot thank him enough!

I just had eye surgery and could not be more pleased with care and ease of whole treatment. I had the same surgery for left eye at another clinic and it made me put off this second surgery for 3 years due to the discomfort and problems. Thank you
