"I would like to thank you for my successful cataract surgeries!My vision has improved tremendously and hope it will get better with time. Your skills and care have made my experience a lot less scary! Thanks again to you and your staff. "

Mrs. Ratovohery

"Dr. Silk pulled no punches and prepared me for my procedure. It was just what I was told and it was totally painless. Finding Dr. Silk was the best thing that ever happened to me. I have the vision of a two year old and it is because of the great job of Dr. Silk and his staff. I salute you for a job well done. "

Ernie Moore

"Dr. Silk and his fine staff have been treating me for several years and I have always been exceptionally pleased with the care and attention I’ve received. Recently, Dr. Silk performed cataract surgery on both my eyes (two weeks apart) and the results are thrilling! My eyes are still healing, but the improvement in my vision is nothing short of astounding. I can see well at all distances, no longer need to use a magnifying glass and reading glasses to see my computer, read, or pay my bills. My depth perception is normal. I can drive and clearly read all types of signs that are far away. I couldn’t be happier with the results.

Thank you, Dr. Silk, for giving me back my life."

Elizabeth Hellmann

"When I was ready for cataract surgery my ophthalmologist referred me to Dr. Silk and I am so grateful that he did. I have been more than just satisfied with the care I have received, I have been truly impressed. I was treated well by everyone involved from the moment I called to make an appointment through the aftercare following surgery. Everyone is friendly, considerate, thorough, knowledgeable and professional. Various options were explained to me but I was never pressured to agree to any process or type of lens implant that may have been more profitable for the center. I was encouraged to do what I was comfortable with. I would recommend Silk Vision & Surgical Center to anyone considering eye surgery. "

"I had cataract surgery six weeks ago by Dr. Silk, and couldn’t be happier. I was very nervous prior to the procedure, the thought of someone getting near my eye with a knife was not comfortable, but Dr. Silk went over the entire process, including what I would or would not see and feel. That helped a great deal, and the surgery was a breeze. Really. I was very comfortable; there was no pain and Dr. Silk told me during the procedure what he was going to do and what sensation I would be feeling. I’m exceptionally pleased with my vision now as it’s clear and bright and crisp in the eye that had the cataract. Very easy healing process; the post-op instructions were easy to understand. I’d recommend Dr. Silk to anyone. Thanks for a no-stress experience! "

"I was recently diagnosed with Cataract and Surgery was done By Dr. Silk. When I met Dr. Silk on the first day at his office I was so impressed with his clinical Skill and the caution he expressed regarding mild inflammation in the eye I immediately agreed with his advice. His Postoperative care was highly commendable. I have no hesitation to attest for his service if someone needs that. He is a compassionate and skillful eye surgeon. I am thankful for the best services provided by other members of the office. "

"Dr Silk was recommended by a local eye doctor for cataract surgery. It turned out to be a good recommendation. He is very professional and good in explaining what he will do what he has done and the next steps. He took his time in l understanding my history ( I previously I had two retina surgery in the eye that had cataract) . The choice of hospital for surgery was good as was the additional laser procedure. All in all I am very pleased with Dr Silk and would recommend him to my friends and acquaintances needing eye surgery. "

Yazgan Musannif

"I was diagnosed with cataracts that left me virtually blind this past July. I am only 26 and this was a complete shock as I had perfect vision until a few months before. Dr. Silk was able to get me in for cataract surgery by mid-September. I chose a multifocal lens which helps preserve more visual function than a traditional lens and would allow me to continue with medical school to graduate on time. He and his staff were great at accommodating my busy schedule as well as going over the various options for lens implants, costs and financing options to get me what I needed. I would highly recommend him. "

"My mother was having trouble seeing. I researched and found Dr. Silk. Let me say this, my mother is NOT a fan of doctors. But we found Dr. Silk caring, kind, & compassionate. My mother is not a native English speaker, but Dr. Silk explained everything carefully enough so that she understood and was comfortable and at ease. She even trusted him enough to undergo two cataract surgeries under his sure hands. She underwent both surgeries with the least amount of nervousness and was completely fearless for the second one! I felt he made my mother’s case (which was quite severe) a priority and his treatment of her was exceptional. I highly recommend his services. "

"recently had cataract surgery and Dr. Silk was my surgeon. I was very impressed with the staff in his office, the staff at VHC, and with Dr. Silk personally. In the office the staff was friendly, helpful, always greeted me in a professional, caring manner. They were very accommodating, when I got lost, the first time I visited, and was 45 minutes late. They were so nice and allowed me to keep my appointment, with only smiles and encouragement. Dr. Silk was very helpful explaining the procedure, answering all my questions, and taking any fears I had away. As a result of the surgery, I am amazed at the results. I felt as if a miracle had occurred when the patch over my eye was removed, and I could see. Everything was so bright and clear. I had no idea how poor my vision was until I was actually able to see. I would recommend Dr. Silk and his staff to anyone who has eye issues. The experience was painless and very rewarding. "

"Dr. Silk was very thorough when it comes to examination and treatment. He always made me feel at ease and comfortable. On my first office visit, he knew what kind of treatment I needed. We really didn’t discuss any other option at that time because there was none for me. At the situation I was in, I knew surgery was the only way. As soon as the pre-certification was sent, I went right on it. I didn’t have second thoughts. I immediately put my trust on Dr. Silk, and I didn’t regret it. He helped me get my life back. "

"I had an excellent experience. What I like most about Dr. Silk is his bedside manner. For me, he’s got a very good one. He made me feel relaxed during and after my procedures. He came and visited me in the recovery room right after surgery to check on me, and made sure I was all right. A gesture (moral support) I needed during those times, especially I didn’t have anybody with me before and after my surgeries. Overall, I am very happy and satisfied with Dr. Silks’ expertise and excellent services. I have found an excellent ophthalmologist and I am very thankful for that. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others. "
