Dr. Strinden is thorough and really takes the time to explain everything to his patients. My wife and I have benefited from this personally. We both had cataract surgery from him earlier this year and it went off without a hitch. Thanks to the type of lens he put in, I can now drive at night and read without glasses, crazy! Dr. Strinden and his staff have a lot to be proud of, they run a fine operation.

Dr. Strinden performed my eyelid surgery and did an incredible job. I seriously look 20 years younger! He has an eye for detail and it shows, I wouldn't trust cosmetic surgery on my face to anyone else in the area.

My whole family loves Dr. Strinden! He is such a kind, talented man. I could not love my LASIK results more and my mom's life changed when Dr. Tom and his team did cataract surgery on her last year. We're just so blessed to have found him.

I had LASIK surgery from Dr. Strinden last month and it changed my life. I'm now able to see perfectly without any glasses or contacts, saving me a lot of money! I'm so grateful for Dr. Strinden and his staff for improving my vision. I only have one regret: not giving myself this gift sooner!

My dad had cataract surgery from Dr. Strinden last month and it was so incredible. Dad doesn't normally handle surgery or doctor's visits well but Dr. Strinden and his staff were able make him feel comfortable and confident about the procedure. They are truly gifted! We are so grateful for Dr. Tom and his whole team.

Dr. Strinden did both my husband's and my LASIK surgeries this past summer. Both of us are so happy with the results. I can't believe I didn't do this sooner! He was very good about making sure I was comfortable and explaining everything clearly for me. The whole process was so quick, easy and painless. If you are considering LASIK, do it! It's life changing.

Incredibly talented surgeon. My LASIK results have been incredible and my grandmothers cataract surgery went well and gave her the results she was after. We couldn't be happier!

Dr. Strinden provided the best care possible for both myself and my mother. I had LASIK done by Dr. Strinden a few years ago and the results have been incredible, and then my mom had cataract surgery a few weeks ago and cannot believe the results. We love coming to Dr. Strinden and are so grateful for his kindness and talent.
