The Staff is very courteous, friendly and knowledgeable. Drs Kyle and Brian Den Beste obviously care about their patients and take the time to answer questions and ensure their patients have all the facts prior to making any decisions about their eye care. I am very pleased with the care that I received and would highly recommend them.
The front end staff was friendly yet professional. I had some questions prior to visiting the doctor and the person was very good at addressing them. Dr Denbeste was great. He had a good sense of humor and relieved any concerns I had. He answered all my questions and made my feel confident with his expertise.
Dr. Beste and his staff were the BEST I could have asked for. I felt as though I was important to them and they cared about my getting through the procedure with the best results.
I felt very taken care of- from signing in at the front desk, to the financial office, to preop, and through postop. Every person I encountered was professional and pleasant. Thank you so very much.
The entire staff epitomizes proficiency, professionalism and caring. I would recommend your doctors and facility first and foremost to anyone needing this service. I am ecstatic with the results of my procedures; they far exceeded my expectations. Thank to all of the staff who make your practice special in so many ways. Sincerely, Jonell
I am 58 years old and had been wearing glasses or contacts since I was seven….I was fine with the contacts until about 2 years ago when I started having problems with dryness and not being able to see clearly. I had been using one contact for up close and one for far away for about 15 years, so I never had to worry about glasses – just the contacts.
After Dr. Willson, my eye doctor, tried everything to help my situation, he highly recommended that I go for a consultation with Dr. DenBeste. It was the best decision I could have ever made. With a lot of precise measuring and analyzing, Dr. DenBeste felt like he could help my situation. He took so much time checking, rechecking, and looking at my individual situation that I felt very confident going into the surgery. With his preciseness and care during the surgery, he helped me to feel relaxed and assured.
Today I am so pleased and excited! I don’t have to worry about solutions, losing my contacts, getting something under the contact, etc. But the best thing is I can see clearly! I have the freedom to go to sleep while watching TV and not having to worry about taking out my contacts. I don’t have to grab those glasses when I get up in the mornings. (It took me a while to get used to that!) I can go swimming and snorkeling with now worries about losing a contact or not being able to see! There really is a freedom in being able to see!
I opted to have one eye corrected for reading and one for distance. Since I had been seeing like that with my contacts, it wasn’t a problem getting used to it at all. Here I am at 58 seeing like I did when I was 6! What an amazing miracle! Teri
Now that I know how incredible the Lasik procedure is, I would have paid 3x as much. It is an incredible investment for the right person.
Having been born astigmatism and myopia, I constantly struggled through countless pairs of glasses and contacts. Growing weary of dry contacts, broken glasses, and tired eyes, I began researching various corrective eye surgery options in late 2008. LASIK appeared to be my best option. This was confirmed by my optometrist who referred me to your. Your sound advice comforted me and helped me to become confident in the process. The fact that you opened the first laser vision correction center in Orlando and have received numerous awards for your work didn't hurt either. The procedure went flawlessly and the results were absolutely incredible. My vision is better than I could have ever imagined and markedly better than with any corrective lenses I've worn. A year later, I have no negative side effects whatsoever. .Thank you,
"best investment I have ever made...love it!"
I want to thank you and your staff for all the excellent service you provided for me. I was alittle nervous about having the procedure performed but after meeting with you Dr. Den Beste you made all those fears go away. You were so great to explain how the procedure was going to be performed and what to expect after the surgery and you always listened to any concerns that I had. You are a great person and thanks for taking the time to care.
I am so happy to have made the decision to have the lasik surgery and I would recommend it to everyone.
I wanted to let you know that 7 months after having my eyes corrected by laser - and I chose monovision, I could not possibly be more pleased. I think I had realistic expectations about the monovision treatment - it is a reprogramming of your brain, and I have felt complete satisfaction with the results. I do not need reading glasses of any kind while my distance vision amazes those around me. The absolute best is going from reading a menu in a dimly lit restaurant to speaking with the person across the table - and visually not being able to recognize which eye is taking over. That's my definition of a satisfying outcome.
Initially I was scared to death, thinking "this is it, I'm now going to be blind", but I studied everything I could, received the advice of my local eye doctor and took the plunge. Actually, your and your office staff made me feel very comfortable and understood what I finally wanted. I thank you. I felt like a new person the day after the procedure, and I tell everyone how easy the procedure is and how personally satisfying the results can be, monovision or plain distance vision.
I would like to add a note about selecting monovision over distance vision in both eyes. You have to understand that depth perception will need getting used to (I was already enjoying monovision contact lenses for several years) . This will be especially important while driving at night (daytime isn't as bad). With practice you'll be fine. Another assurance to those choosing monovision - if it's not for you, you can always have that "reading" eye changed to a distance eye. Most people do not know this. This is a fantastic procedure that is safe, effective, and life-changing. Now, I can't imagine not wanting to have this done. I cannot thank you enough.
I have worn glasses since 2nd grade and I am now 50 years old. My husband got Lasik surgery for my birthday. At first I was VERY nervous but after my initial consultation my fears statred to wane. When it was time for surgery, I felt very confident that all would go well. I felt no pain and can see really, really good now! The only problem I have is getting out of the habit of searching for my glasses when I hop out of bed!!
Thank you so much!
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you and all of your team for the Lasik correction on my eyes. Everyone at “Lasik Pro” treated me so courteously from the consultation, through the surgery and the follow ups. The surgery went very smoothly just as I was told.
As I had worn monovision contacts for the last 19 years, I was finally ready to try the Lasik. I am extremely pleased with the outcome. I gained additional clarity on both my distance and close up vision.
No more solutions, containers, cleaning or time inserting the contacts or removing them from my eyes and no more glasses when the contacts were removed. It is nice to have no more irritation from contacts during the late night hours of the day. Best of all I see great from the time I wake up until the time I go to bed.
I am sure you hear this all of the time but I only wish I had decided to have my Lasik procedure done years ago. My wife had her Lasik procedure done by you many years ago, she had worn glasses and contacts since childhood and she to was pleased with the outcome. We are now a Lasik family.
Anyone considering the surgery should not procrastinate. You cannot imagine what it is like to have your vision corrected and be done with glasses and contacts.
Having my vision restored was something I never dreamed possible but you and your staff made it happen. Thanks again.
I can not even begin to tell you how happy and satisfied with the surgery and excellent service you provided for me. I have been a glasses wearer most of my life and they have always gotten in my way whether it was sports, the military and even in my social life.
Currently, I work in the Information Technology field which sometimes requires me to go in and out of environment controlled computer/telephone rooms where the air conditioning makes the room colder than normal. Well, going in and out to get tools and equipment I need becomes a burden when your glasses keep fogging up.
As for sports, I no longer have to hurry up and put contact lenses on or worry about solution for them or even worse wear the sport goggles that make me look silly.
Finally as far as my social life, I just feel so much better. Many friends and acquaintances have told me I look a lot better without glasses and not having them makes me feel a lot more confident about my appearance. Let's be honest, everyone feels better about themselves when they feel confident in their appearance.
The best part of all was the fact that you and your staff made me feel very comfortable. I have had friends that have told me that they have gone to other places and they had very little interaction with the surgeon until the actual procedure. In my case though we spoke at length during the entire procedure. From the first day we met when you gave me an exam for my candidacy all the way through my surgery. I felt very comfortable with the way you treated me and that made the entire experience very relaxing and easy. I have already recommended you to several friends and again THANK YOU very much.
Please feel free to use me and this letter as any kind of reference to any potential patients.
I would be more than happy to answer any questions regarding the patients perspective and help to alleviate any anxieties they may have. Honestly though, with you as a doctor they probably won't have any. I know once we started, I had nothing but complete confidence in you and my confidence was completely justified.
Take care and all the best wishes for your success in the future. I plan on recommending you to everyone I know who is considering Lasik.
