I am very satisfied with everyone at Planet Vision Eye Center in Lake Worth. John, who has been there for us from the very beginning, and also sold us on the new glasses OVO, which my husband and I love, is so "customer service" oriented. I myself, I'm also in customer service and he surpasses what I have experienced in the past It is so important that he really cares.

Dr Bhakta has the latest technology in her eye care practice. I was so impressed with my eye exam recently. She was very professional and it was the best experience I've ever had at a doctor's office...she really took the best care of my eye health. She is definitely going to be my eye doctor for the future. I will not be going anywhere else!

I had the best eye exam with Dr.Bhakta, she was very thorough and gave me the most detailed eye exam I have ever had. Her staff were very friendly and they had such a great selection of eyewear. The eyeglasses I purchased were so cute. I will definitely be going back every year!

I've been seeing Dr Bhakta for 3 years now and I've never felt more comfortable with any physician. She is extremely knowledgeable about my condition and her progression too. I have a family history of glaucoma and I feel blessed she is looking to stay many steps ahead of the disease with what I consider to be very thorough exams through manual examinations and advanced scanning equipment. She is also has fabulous bedside manner, something sorely lacking in most physicians' these days.
