"Dr. Silk performed my LASIK about a week and a half ago. I have been seeing him for my eye care for a few months now, leading up to my LASIK and he has been wonderful. He has a great bedside manner and is a true, honest professional.
I would recommend him for LASIK and also for general ophthalmology any day."
"We wanted to let you know how much we appreciated your quality care, in a timely manner and making patients feel like they were important to you and not just a 'number.'"

"I started wearing glasses since I was 8 years old. Since then, my vision deteriorated until I was in my twenties. I couldn’t even see anything, not even something half a foot in front of me. My vision was bad. I heavily relied on glasses and contacts. Even with vision insurance, I would have to pay so much money for glasses with the extra thin lenses or the expensive contact lenses since most manufacturers did not make contacts with my prescription. When I was 22, I went to a LASIK consultation and they informed me that my vision was too high and that I was not eligible for LASIK. However, to check back in a couple years as technology improves. I went back about 7 years later and was told the exact same thing. About a year ago, one of my coworkers got LASIK done and she just raved about it. She gave me Dr.Silk’s contact information but I was hesitant to make my initial consultation. After being turned down twice for LASIK, I didn’t have high hopes for this time around. I finally made the appointment and traveled from Maryland to Virginia to see Dr. Silk. Based off my cornea and prescription, I was once again not eligible to LASIK. But, I would be a candidate for ICL surgery.
I went back to do some pre-op eye measurements. I got my surgery appointment with all of the necessary information and drugs ahead of time. By the time surgery rolled around, I wasn’t even nervous. I was excited to be able to finally see without any contacts or glasses. The surgery process was smooth. Dr. Silk was wonderful, calm, and professional. He would tell me what he was doing and what was going to happen next. The nurses in the operating room had amazing bed side manners and made sure that I was comfortable the whole entire time. I never felt uneasy or uncomfortable before or during the surgery. The surgery lasted about an hour and for the first time in 27 years, I was able to see the world without a lenses. As with ICL surgery, my vision was a hazy at first. But I could still see better than before my surgery. The next morning, I woke up and I could immediately see around my bedroom. It felt surreal. Dr. Silk made it happen. Thank you."
"When I made the decision to get LASIK, I began by reading reviews for local doctors. The number of 5-star reviews for Dr. Silk, and the fact that his office was able to schedule me for a visit immediately brought me in.
From the beginning, Dr. Silk was extremely meticulous about explaining the details of the procedure, and the benefits and risks. His pricing was very clear (no hidden fees or office visit copays) and better than other eye centers in the area.
I’d highly recommend Dr. Silk. He’s very professional, has a great staff, and puts a high priority on patient care and comfort."
"I don’t think I could be happier about my LASIK surgery with Dr. Silk. He is very informative and answers any questions or concerns that you have regarding your eyes and the LASIK procedure. I was very nervous about the surgery beforehand, but during the actual treatment Dr. Silk and the assistant kept me very calm and used really encouraging words, just telling me how well I was doing and exactly what steps were next. It was very hazy afterwards and there was some discomfort, but after sleeping for like 6 hours after the surgery, I woke up and had a huge smile on my face because I could see! Amazing results, I am very happy because I was very nearsighted. Make sure you take the prescribed drops and artificial tears, sometimes my eyes can get pretty dry. I am very satisfied! Thank you Silk Vision!"
"Dr. Silk performed my LASIK surgery a few weeks ago and since then I have been seeing 20/20 (or better) without glasses or contacts for the first time in over 20 years. Dr. Silk was very thorough with all the initial testing, provided a detailed explanation of the procedure (from beginning to end), and provided excellent after-care ensuring to answer all my questions (I had a lot). It is easy to get nervous, after all, it is your vision, but Dr. Silk’s professionalism and confidence in the procedure put me at ease. It is also nice to know that Dr. Silk continues to care for his own patients after the LASIK procedure rather than referring them elsewhere. It’s also worth noting that the office is clean and the staff is polite and receptive. I’m so excited to be seeing this well and couldn’t be happier with the overall experience."
"I wore glasses for 17 years and I decided to have LASIK surgery because I wanted to enjoy outdoor activities with my family without the hassle of wearing contact lenses. Two weeks ago I had my LASIK done with Dr. Silk and I was extremely happy with my result. My eye vision is now 20/15. Dr. Silk exceeded my expectations. He examined my eyes thoroughly before the LASIK procedure. He took his time to explain what I was to expect before, during and after the procedures. I was able to see clearly after a post-surgery nap. The next day, I found my eye vision to be perfect and I no longer need glasses or contact lenses anymore. The receptionist at his office is also very nice, polite and helpful. I am so glad that I had this surgery and that I chose Dr. Silk. Thank you, Dr. Silk and your staff; I recommend Dr. Silk to anyone interested in LASIK. "

"I was having trouble wearing contacts because of my dry eyes and didn’t want to wear glasses anymore. At this point I decided to have LASIK surgery. Dr. Silk helped treat my dry eyes first and then I had my LASIK surgery. My vision is great and I’m ecstatic with the results. I’m 20/20 and no longer have to worry about putting in contacts or wearing glasses. Dr. Silk really took his time and did a great job. I tell all my friends who are thinking about LASIK to definitely go visit Dr. Silk."
"I had LASIK surgery with Dr. Silk just over a week ago. I’m so happy with the results! Having a personal doctor with his own office is so much better than going to one of the LASIK centers. Everything was laid out plain and simple. The process was straightforward and now I don’t need my glasses at all! I highly recommend Dr. Silk over other places because the service is personal- you are treated as an individual, not just the next patient. Dr. Silk and her nurse assistant made the surgery as pleasant as possible and talked me through the whole process. If you want LASIK, this is the place to go."
"I recently had LASIK surgery with Dr. Silk as my surgeon. I can’t recommend him enough! I had lots of questions (after all, you only get two eyeballs and they don’t grow back) but he answered them all. Both his pre-surgical and after-care are very meticulous and professional. Two other LASIK centers had evaluated me for surgery (one for, one against) when I came to Dr. Silk. It was his thoroughness and insistence on details that led me to trust my eyes and vision to him, and I couldn’t be happier. "
"Dr. Silk is very professional and an excellent eye surgeon. I went for a LASIK eye consultation and was immediately impressed with his thoroughness in evaluating my eyes and then every time I met up with him through to finishing the LASIK surgery. I am stunned that I can now see 20/20 without glasses and have no halos or glare issues. Other eye surgeries & issues are more his forte (he is fully trained in all aspects of the eye) but the care he took with my eyes indicates to me that he is methodical and truly cares about his patient’s vision. I would highly recommend Silk Vision."
