I strongly recommend Bernitsky Vision ad Dr. Bernitsky! I had cataract surgery and the entire experience from first visit to follow up was top notch! The staff is friendly and professional and nice and Dr. Bernitsky is great! I had no worries because everything was thoroughly discussed with me and the home care kit and info pack I got was very detailed. Also, I never waited more than 5 minutes in the waiting room (which is a miracle in itself!) The surgery was very good and the results spectacular. Thank you Bernitsky Vision.

My experience with Dr. Bernitsky and his staff was great. To begin with, when I told the office that I was interested in using my Flexible Spending Account (FSA) to pay for the surgery, the office advised me to wait to set aside the FSA funds until I was approved by Dr. Bernitsky as a good candidate for the surgery. That was very helpful advice, as I have never used FSA funds before, and had I not been accepted as a candidate, I would have just lost a few thousand dollars. I was approved, however. Then, on the day of my surgery, I showed up and felt well-informed of what to expect. The surgery went quickly and was painless. Right after the surgery, I opened my eyes and could see the clock on the wall, which was amazing because I’ve been wearing glasses for over 15 years and my contact prescription was -4.25 before the surgery. The next morning I was still painless and had 20/15 vision. Amazing. Thank you, Dr. Bernitsky!

I got my first pair of glasses in the 5th grade. I remember the feeling of awe when I looked at a tree and saw leaves. Over the years I have tried contacts and progressive lens when the contacts were no longer working. The last few years, I have been in a fight with light. Trying to grade my students papers was a nightmare. For some reason, I was having a very hard time reading their work in the evening. The light was wrong. They write too light. The paper is too reflective. The paper is too… yucky. I did not realize that I had cataracts. I went to see Dr. Bernitsky to see if I could have LASIK. Instead I had IOL and a miracle. I can see the leaves on the trees again. What a joy. Thank you, Dr. Bernitsky, and all of your staff.

“Dr. Bernitsky and his staff were awesome! I told them the main reason for this is that I’m applying for Law Enforcement. They really wanted me to be happy and successful with the freedom from contacts and glasses. They answered all my questions and concerns. They talked me through every step of the process without falter. I tell everyone I know about my new eyes, how affordable it is, and how there was no pain through the surgery at all! Thank you Dr. Bernitsky for your
passion for vision correction!”
- Dwight N. Roberts
I recently had my life changed for the good with Z Lasik Eye Surgery and I wanted to write and let you know of the OUTSTANDING experience I had.
I have had to wear glasses since third grade and immediately the “four eyes” jokes began, in eighth grade I got contacts which started a constant battle with drops, cases, solution etc., I have always dreamed to be able to see and for the past 3 days it’s been amazing!
My schedule was accommodated without hesitation and I was able to have my surgery on a day that Dr. Bernitsky normally does not do surgeries. Since my first visit in your office EVERYONE was so nice and always had a smile on their face. Every person I ran into acknowledged me with a smile or a “good morning”.
I work in a hotel and customer service is my job, I often over critique any restaurants, doctors’ offices, stores etc. and hold them to a very high standard of customer service, most places fail to pass my “test”. From previous experience a doctor’s office is the last place on earth I would expect excellent customer service but with my recent care you all have gone above and beyond and made my surgery more comfortable and relaxing than I could have ever imagined. Please give everyone who works so hard to change people’s lives a huge THANK YOU from me!
In my department alone there are 6 people wanting to have Lasik and I know exactly where I am going to send them!
- Britni Lujan
I started wearing glasses when I was eight. By adulthood, my myopia and astigmatism were so bad that I absolutely could not function without glasses or contacts. I always hated wearing thick glasses, but over the years my contacts got harder and harder to tolerate.
I have been interested in LASIK for many years but always figured that my prescription would prevent me from being a candidate. When I went to Dr. Bernitsky for a free consultation, he confirmed what I had always assumed, that I was not a good candidate for LASIK. However, there was a silver lining: I was a good candidate for Visian ICL surgery to fix my myopia, and my astigmatism could be fixed with LASIK after my eyes healed from the ICL.
Three days ago I had my ICL surgery, and it has far exceeded my expectations. Twenty-four hours after my surgery I was seeing details I never saw with my glasses or contacts. These implantable lenses are so cool! I visited the Albuquerque Biopark one day after my surgery, and the texture and beauty of the flowers in the greenhouse moved me to tears. I have been staring at my husband of 10 years like I have never seen him before. I want to revisit every beautiful place I have ever been to see what I missed!
Dr. Bernitsky radiates a calm competence. I feel lucky to have benefited from his expertise. And Team Bernitsky is simply fabulous. Although I was terrified to have eye surgery, I knew I could put my trust in Dr. Bernitsky and his staff. I have experienced magic, an unfathomable, life-changing miracle, and I’m so excited! Thank you!
- Sally Paez
Where to begin? I had always thought about getting LASIK because I hated wearing glasses and contacts were a bit of an inconvenience as well. I was a little skeptical and afraid, so I sent my husband to do it first. After being jealous of his new eyesight for about a year, it was finally my turn to get it done. I am SO happy with my results. I love being able to wake up in the mornings and see with my new eyes! Dr. Bernitsky is the BEST! Everything from the consultation to the procedure to the follow up appointment was great. Words can’t even begin to describe how pleased I am and how happy I am now. Thanks again Dr. B!
- Annette Gallegos
Being a local surgeon, proximity to residence and other individuals testimonials; as well as the consultation visit made the choice easy. Initially we were looking at LASIK for our Son, which he had done last year and loves it. Then my wife, who always hated her progressive lens consulted Dr. B and was
given the option of Lens Replacement. She had no cataracts, but being in her 50′s, this is the option she went with. Last week as a new years’ present (2012) I also opted for Lens Replacement. Having had “coke bottle” lens/contacts for 50 years—OMG, I can see and comfortably, too !!! Although no bargain…cheap at half the price for all the care, concern and options afforded me and my family. My daughter is the only hold-out, because she says
“I like wearing glasses”. I believe we will sway her thinking soon. Great job Staff !!! and you too Dr. B. AND GO LOBOS !!!
- Kenneth Callahan
I am so glad that I chose Dr. Bernitsky for my LASIK procedure. His staff were so professional and super nice. They answered all of my questions and made me comfortable with the entire experience. I am loving my new vision without glasses or contacts and I will and have recommended Dr. Bernitsky and his staff to my friends and Family! Thank you!
- Melissa Ramirez
As an ophthalmologist I knew Dr Bernitsky to be an outstanding colleague. Last week I became his patient when he performed laser vision correction on me. Not only are my results outstanding, but the experience itself was top notch and patient-centered. I am grateful to everyone at this exceptional practice!
- Linda Rose, MD PhD
To whom it may concern, my name is Robert Gonzales. I had eye Lasik surgery 5 years ago. I also had Intraocular Lens Replacement about a month ago done by Dr. Bernitsky. I am 65 years old, a veteran of the Viet-Nam war. I can’t remember my eyesight ever being this good even as a young man in the military, after the surgery done by Dr. Bernitsky.
I had other choices to have this surgery in other facilities (FOR FREE) and I chose Dr. Bernitsky. I highly recommend him to anyone who wishes to have the best possible vision.
- Robert J. Gonzales
What an absolutely tremendous experience. The entire experience that I had with Dr. Bernitsky and his staff only confirmed the fact that I made the correct choice on choosing him to perform this procedure. Everyone involved was a total professional; they answered all questions that I had about pre and post op steps. I would go out of my way to recommend his office to anyone even considering corrective surgery.
- Todd P.
I had been wearing glasses since I was 7 years old and gas permeable contacts since I was 12 because my eye sight was rapidly getting worse. I learned to live with painful eyes, not being able to see… I couldn’t even remember what it meant to see without some sort of corrective lens. I had always thought it would be nice to get lasik but the cost always seemed out of reach. Finally in 2007, when I was 28, my husband convinced me to go in for a consultation at Dr. Bernitsky’s office “just to see what they would say.” He didn’t like seeing me suffer through dust storms or fumbling for my glasses just to see what time it was in the middle of the night. They told me I wasn’t eligible for lasik but I was a candidate for the ICL. It sounded weird but it couldn’t be worse than sticking a contact to my eyeball everyday. Haha! They also put me in touch with a few other patients that had had the ICL surgery done and gave me plenty of resources. They encouraged me to research the procedure. I finally decided to go for it. On December 17, 2007, I
went in to have the surgery done. I won’t lie and say it wasn’t painful, though I think my tolerance isn’t very high. The pre-surgery procedures were hard to get through and my eyes and head throbbed afterwards but it went away after a good night’s sleep. I will never forget though, as I was walking in to the room looking at the clock on the wall and seeing nothing but a blur. Had I not already known it was a clock I wouldn’t have been able to recognize the blotches. When I came out, I looked up at that clock and I could actually see it! I started balling my eyes out. It was one of the most amazing things that have happened in my life. Funny, four years later and I still think to reach for glasses before I look at
my alarm clock in the middle of the night. Until I open my eyes and can see it clearer than I did with my glasses. Thank you, Dr. Bernitsky and your team. You have definitely improved my quality of life. Thank you!!
- Amber A.
The staff are so welcoming and reassuring. Dr. B. really knows his
stuff. I truly appreciate his calm demeanor and patience. It’s wonderful to be able to see without glasses. Now I just need to stop reaching for my glasses.
Thanks so much!!
- Judee Harrington
I just received Lasik last Friday and by Saturday morning I had 20/15 vision! What a life changing experience. Not having to wake up and hassle with contacts or glass is such a blessing. Thank you Dr. Bernitsky and staff for being so wonderful throughout the whole process!
- Karah Williams
I have known Dave and his family for over twenty five years. His
reputation for eye surgery was A1. When it came time for my cararact surgery it was a no brainer to pick him. The surgery was safe and easy!!!! Dave, his wife (Gay), and his staff were fantastic. I now can read my stop watch and clip board clearly! My life is brighter now thanks to Dave!
- Jim Ciccarello
At age 50 I elected to have the monovision enhancement. Things at a distance were blurry, while viewing close-up required reading glasses. Now I am enjoying the best of both worlds – I can see extended distances with extreme clarity using my dominant eye, while my non-dominant eye can now read the finest of print. Dr. Bernitsky and his staff are nothing less than incredible.
- Bill Goodman
I can’t believe the way my eyesight changed within a single day! From the moment I came off of the operating chair, I could see a significant difference in my eyesight. The post-op period was nice and they gave me a chance to rest. Dr. B and his staff are magnificent and I would recommend them in a blink of an eye!
- Christina Garcia
I can see!
- Ricky Anderson
Got my LASIK procedure on Friday September 16th, and am so VERY happy with everything. It couldn’t have gone any better. I was seeing 20/15 the next day when I went in for a checkup, that is considering my eyes are still healing. Dr. Bernitsky and his staff are so helpful and the nicest people you will ever meet. They make you feel right at home. I couldn’t be happier. Thanks again Dr. Bernitsky.
- Floyd Pena
After years of thinking about Lasik surgery I finally put fear behind me and on the recommendation of my regular eye doctor, Jerald Littlefield, I contacted Dr. Bernitsky. I had my procedure at the end of May and was amazed and delighted when, a few hours and a long nap later, I was able to clearly see my family gathered around the bed to check on me! A few days later I had what turned out to be nothing more than a severe allergy attack, and even though it was Memorial Day Monday Dr. Bernitsky met me at his office for an exam to rule out any possibility of infection. This was in my opinion above and beyond the call of duty! As many have said before me, my only regret is that I didn’t have Lasik sooner! Thank you Dr. Bernitsky and all of your fine staff!
- Daniel Ellis-Green
I had Lasik preformed in another state 13 years ago. Afterwards one of my eyes was corrected to 20/20 but the other one was not quite as sharp. Over time, I realized that it was regressing further and that I needed to have a second procedure done.
As a photographer my vision is my livelihood and my dominant eye was the one that was not as sharp. I began relying on my camera to focus for me instead of using my eye, since the vision in this eye was not 20/20.
I had done some work for Dr. Bernitsky and I got the chance to know him and his family personally before I became a patient. When I made the decision to undergo a second procedure, I knew that Dr. Bernitsky would be the right surgeon for me. Dr. Bernitsky is very caring and took a lot of time to explain all of my options. He was very honest with what I could expect and what the second procedure would involve.
His Operating room is state of the art. I immediately felt comfortable on the day of the surgery and I knew I was in great hands. Afterwards, he even called my home that evening and spoke to my husband to make sure that I was comfortable and doing well.
I am thrilled with the results of my PRK procedure. Now, the eye that was operated on is better than 20/20! My photography has changed dramatically as a result and it is great to have perfect vision in both of my eyes.
I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Bernitsky and all of the wonderful people who work in his office. I have been very, very happy. Having eye surgery with Dr. Bernitsky is one of the best things I have ever given myself!
- Angela Gaeto
Almost 5 years ago I started working for Dr. Bernitsky and looking into the options of vision correction for myself. I had an average prescription but really thin corneas that didn’t make me a candidate for LASIK. When he told me that I almost started crying thinking this was the rest of my life! But there was a but, I was an excellent candidate for the ICL. For over 4 years I had to wait for my vision to stabilize so that I could have the surgery and it finally happened for me three weeks ago. Dr. Bernitsky has changed my life completely and I thank him and everyone that helped me for so many years not give up hope and keep trying. It was well worth the wait and I couldn’t be happier!!!
- Rosey Swapp
I have anticipated receiving LASIK since my parents received it
thirteen years ago. For many, LASIK is one of the many benefits of modern
medicine, but to me it is a modern miracle. Just over a year ago, I was told that I was at risk of going blind from contact overwear. I was told that I would never be able to wear contacts again and would be condemned to glasses for the rest of my life. In the course of the year, I visited an opthamologist every two weeks. A month ago, it was recommended that I visit Bernitsky for a consultation. I expected him to tell me to come back in a year or two, but I was surprised to hear that I could have the procedure done in the next month. Today, I see better than I have ever been able to see. It means that I don’t have to wipe rain off my glasses or search for them in the morning with my eyes four inches away from the bedside table. It means that I can go for a run, and not have to worry about confusing a tree root with a rattlesnake.!
It gives me freedom to pursue an active life. I have Bernitsky and his team to
thank for this modern miracle. Thank you!
- Katherine Wills
I had a wonderful visit! Dr. Bernitsky was great, he was very courteous and professional. I did not know I was even a good candidate for LASIK until I came into the office for a consultation.
I scheduled my surgery and had quite a few questions. Dr. Bernitsky was very helpful answering all of my questions. I would recommend his services to all of my coworkers & I believe I should have done this a long time ago!
- Whitney Ballard
After having to reschedule my visit numerous times (my fault, not
theirs) I came in for my consult. I was impressed at how knowledgeable and professional the entire staff was.
Dr. Bernitsky met me and assured me that I was an excellent candidate for the Lasik procedure. He suggested I go with mono-vision to avoid having to use reading glasses in the future.
A couple of days later, I went in for my surgery. It was fast and painless. Dr. B called me at home that night to make sure I was doing well. I really appreciate that type of service.
Its only been three days since I had Lasik, and I’m still slowly getting used to having mono-vision, but it’s starting to work. I’m noticing the difference in my eyes less and less. I am astounded at the crispness and clarity of the vision in my right eye.
So far, I’m more than satisfied. After wearing glasses since I was 11, I feel unencumbered. I’m looking at the world as it was meant to be seen.
Thank you, Dr. Bernitsky and staff.
- Mark Gould
The song I now sing is ( I can see clearly now the fog is gone) Really you and your staff are the best…We came up from Carlsbad and it was well worth the drive..I live in a small retirement comunity so cataract surgery is not new to us but your level of care (before during and after) was the best I have ever had. That being said the results are the best also. Thank you and your staff for all you did for me..I would be blind today if not for you and yours..Thanks again.
- Jim Ward
Dr. B did the LASIK procedure on my wife’s eyes 12 years ago and to this day she is still 20/20. Nine and a quarter years ago I contracted shingles which penetrated the cornea of my left eye. There was only one choice for the doctor to perform a corneal transplant, Dr. Bernitsky. Since that time my vision has been excellent compared to the blindness I had in one eye. It came time for the final step in the reconstruction of my vision. On May 6th Dr. B. performed LASIK on the corneal transplant. He removed five diopters of post-keratoplasty astigmatism and hyperopia, thus restoring my previous 20/20 vision. I am eternally grateful for the care he has provided to our family, mother, sister and friends over that past 12 years. On top of the great care by him and his staff, today I had the ACH CRIVENS! (ref Nac Mac Feegle) moment by looking out into the bright of day, and seeing perfectly. In fact my other eye is jealous. There are many other benefits I have experienced in the past week that, unfortunately I have insufficient room to express. Suffice it to say, I trust my vision to no one else.
- Adam S.
“I’ve been forced to wear glasses since I was in middle school. The idea of contacts just made me cringe. I’ve wanted to get Lasik for years but was always afraid of the idea of an operation. With the a vote of confidence from Rosie about Dr. B; I said lets do it. Its been four days since my procedure and now thanks to Dr. B, I am seeing the world the way it was meant to be seen; through perfect eyes. Thanks Dr. B, you made me see!!!!”
- Aaron Schobel
It is amazing to see without glasses!! I’ve worn glasses since I was 6 years old, and could not tolerate contacts. I thought I was going to be buried in glasses. I thank God for giving Dr. Bernitsky the knowledge and talent to do what he does. The staff and Dr. Bernitsky were all very helpful and friendly. I have been recommending them to everyone that asks me about my experience. This is the best investment I have ever made.
- Denise Garcia
I really had the BEST experience with Dr. Bernitsky and his entire
staff. Everyone in that office is amazing! I don’t have the words to express my thanks. From the minute I walked in the doors of the office everyone made me feel so comfortable and worry free. I would recommend Dr. B and his staff to everyone that is even thinking about LASIK surgery. When it comes to your eyes, go to the BEST!!! All my thanks to you Dr. Bernitsky!!!
- Tamela Hebert
I had LASIK about 5 years ago and recently went in for a “touch up.” I can’t say enough about how my life has changed since these procedures! It’s fantastic to wake up and actually SEE! No contacts! No glasses! If anyone is “on the fence” about this, don’t hesitate. Dr. Bernitsky is the BEST and his staff is so very friendly and cheerful and helpful.
Thank you so much, Dr. Bernitsky!
- Kay Wilson
I had my LASIK procedure performed a week ago on both eyes. I opted for “mono-vision” whereby one eye is focused upon distance and the other for near-vision. The doctor and the staff were very patient and answered all my questions. I am extremely pleased with the procedure as well as the results.
- Mehnoor Khalil
It’s a whole new world! I’ve worn glasses full time since I was 6
years old, and contacts were never easy for me. To wake up in the night and see the clock, or shadows around the room is the most awesome thing! Dr. Bernitsky and his staff were extremely kind and very diligent in making sure I had all the information I needed to make my decision. During the procedure, which is incredibly fast, they were very reassuring and encouraging. For anyone considering Dr. Bertinisky, you will walk away completely satisfied and extremely happy!
- Traci Homan
One of the best decisions I ever made for myself! Dr. Bernitsky and his staff truly changed my life for the better, I cannot say enough great things about my visits. The day after my surgery I could read 20/20 and most of the 20/15 line, my contacts at best couldn’t even give me 20/20 vision. Very pleasant and professional staff, I couldn’t be more pleased with my experience here, I recommend Bernitsky to anyone and everyone I meet. Thank you again Dr. B and staff!
- Mark Wrolstad
WOW! I can not brag enough about Dr. Bernitsky, his staff, and his
facility. This was an amazing experience and more than I could have hoped for. I received Lasik surgery on 4/8/2011. I have never seen this well with my glasses or contacts. I would and have HIGHLY recommend this office for anyone considering Lasik.
Thank you Dr. Bernitsky and staff for the amazing experience you have given me!
- Abby Tucker
Wow!! I have worn glasses and contacts since I was 5 years old. I had Lasik 3-4-11. I will remember this date for the rest of my life. This was the day I Got my eye miracle. I call this a miracle because God powerpacked all the stuff used for this technology and made Dr. Bernitsky to perform this miracle. Thank you God for using Dr. Bernitsky to change my life to see things the way they were meant to be seen. Thru no glasses or contacts, but just God made eyes!!
Dr. Bernitsky and his team are top notch people and treated me AWESOME!!!! Thank you!!!
- Joe Gallegos
A dear friend recommended this office about 8 mos. ago but I declined the information as I’d had the heartbreak of not being a candidate for lasik 6 yrs ago and couldn’t bear another disappointment. I became more frustrated with my sight as the farsighted vision progressively caught up with my nearsightedness. It left me feeling blind most of the time. I decided to research this office and found Dr. Bernitsky offered more options than lasik. My consultation was a success, and he recommended refractive lens exchange because at 51 yrs it is a matter of time before cataracts form. All tests were done that day, and surgery scheduled- amazing! I now have one eye for distance and one eye for reading, and I cannot explain the difference this has made in my life. I have missed so much! Although, I knew Dr. had other surgeries, I felt as though I was his only patient! Everyone from front office to the tech’s are outstanding and excellent at making you feel special. There
is no way..I could be happier. Thank you Dr. Bernitsky and staff for changing my life.
- Jonni Myers Brown
I’d been a long time contacts wearer and got tired of the use and
wanted to seek vision correction alternatives. Being farsighted and not a lasik candidate, I went in to see Dr. Bernitsky about the Clear Lens Exchange procedure. Best move I ever made.
Upon completion of the procedure, the “WOW” factor was immediate. I see better and clearer than I ever have.
First of all, I’d like to tell the farsighted people who are considering this procedure, I highly recommend it. Second of all, and most important, do yourself a favor and go in and see Dr. Bernitsky before you do anything. Dr. B, his staff and entire operation, from top to bottom, are the best.
Thank you for everything.
- Carlos Ramirez
Suffice it to say, “Once I was blind, but now I see…!”
Dr. Bernitsky, you have, quite literally, opened my eyes to an entirely new world, a world without glasses or contacts…
From the moment I read your very kind reply to the question I’d sent to you on Facebook, little did I realize how my life was about to change…
I’d been told by various eye doctors that I was not a good candidate for Lasik to correct my presbyopia, a problem for which adequate correction was additionally precluded by the nearly 20-year-old Radial Keratotomy scars on my corneas.
I, so thankfully, decided to take Dr. Bernitsky up on his offer to come to his office for a free consultation. After my exam, which included numerous, detailed (pain-free!), tests on my eyes, Dr. Bernitsky and I discussed the best options for my particular needs. I was so excited, and I scheduled my surgery dates for Refractive Lens Exchange on both eyes, that very day!
Needless to say, my only regret is that I waited so long before I decided to contact Dr. Bernitsky on Facebook. I had been discouraged by the answers I’d received from other doctors; but not only had I heard wonderful things about Dr. Bernitsky by “word of mouth” around Albuquerque, but I was extremely impressed with his website, as well as the personal interest he demonstrated to each and every one of his individual patients who wrote to him online!
I am absolutely thrilled with my results, and my vision continues to improve daily. I am scheduled to see Dr. Bernitsky for a 3-week follow-up appointment on February 24th, and I fully expect that my vision will have improved greatly, (even from the approximately 20/25 correction that I tested, following the surgery on my second eye, on January 28, 2011.)
Dr. Bernitsky and his friendly, professional staff, have revolutionized my life, and I will forever be indebted and grateful to them all. I highly recommend Dr. Bernitsky, with absolutely no hesitation or reservations, to family, friends, and anyone who would like to live a life, free from the daily hassles of glasses and/or contact lenses.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Dr. Bernitsky!
With deepest gratitude,
- Kimberly M. Lang
Back to work today after having LASIK on Friday! I have to say, I am completely amazed! Less than 24 hours after surgery I was seeing 20/15 and even read a few letters from the 20/10 line! Dr. B said it would even get better. I can’t imagine it getting any better than this!
I also would like to express how impressed I am with Dr. B and his entire staff. Everyone is friendly and professional and truly cares. You can definitely tell that the patient is at the top of their core values as a business! I visited other local providers prior to surgery, and Dr. B and his team impressed me the most! I actually met with him at every visit, which surprised me since I was told at other places that I would only meet the doctor the day of the procedure, and he called me personally to see how I was feeling after the surgery.
Thanks again for a wonderful experience! I cannot express this enough!
- Tiffany Avery
I had lasik vision correction done on 1/28/11. I can honestly say it is one of the best decisions I have ever made! After extensively researching my options and hearing wonderful things first-hand about Dr. Bernitsky, I knew I was in good hands. My eyes are feeling better every day and my vision is great. I am finally glasses-free for the first time in 27 years.
- Loretta Ortega
I have had 2 cataract surgeries performed by Dr. Bernitsky and can’t tell you how wonderful my experiences were. They are the greatest! Everything is presented so well concerning finances, surgery, surgical center, meds, and post op. Thank you for my new vision! I will always be grateful to you and your staff! Thank you Dr. B
- Dana Kelley
I had LASIK with monovision and I am so happy I finally did it! Everybody at Dr. B’s office was extremely helpful and so nice. I highly recommend anybody thinking about LASIK to have it done with Dr. B and his amazing staff. I look forward to the fact that I don’t have to wear glasses or contacts anymore. Thank you all so much!!
- Joey Martinez
Everything about Dr. Bernitsky’s office and staff just makes you feel reassured that you are in competent, expert hands. Every detail is anticipated and addressed. My cataract surgery went very well. I was comfortable at all times, and the follow-up was excellent. It was a positive experience, all the way. Most important my vision is restored. I would highly recommend Dr. Bernitsky!
- Jeanne Stewart
I LOVE my new eyes! Even with contacts, I never saw things as clearly as I do today, and it’s only been 3 days since my surgery. I would highly recommend Dr. Bernitsky to anyone who would like to get rid of their glasses or contacts forever. He and his staff have been extremely professional and courteous during every visit I’ve had with them.
I am anxious to do my regular activities without the hassle of contacts anymore.
THANK YOU SO MUCH, DR. BERNITSKY, AND YOUR FRIENDLY STAFF!
- Susan Earl
Dr. B and his staff are amazing. Very warm, welcoming, and efficient. My son thought it might be too expensive, but I responded, “What is your vision worth?” For me, this is the best investment I have ever made. The procedure was so quick and painless. I don’t know why I waited so long. My family laughs at me because of my comments like,”I can see that license plate, and the leaves, and that sign-WITHOUT contacts!!!”
I had a cataract procedure to remove both cataracts done by Dr. Bernitsky with excellent results! I now have 20/15 in both eyes without any correction! Dr. Bernitsky and his staff are the best! Thanks again!
- Gene Berghaus
I had the intralase procedure done by Dr.Bernitsky about 5 years ago with excellent results!!!! I could not be happier!!! I had been wearing glasses and contacts since I was eight years old and was ‘legally’ blind. NOW I have 20/15 in both eyes without any correction — even after 5 years!!! It by far was one of the best things I have done for myself. I live in Phoenix, AZ and refer patients to Dr. Bernitsky as it is well worth the trip. I have several friends that have had the lasik procedure done locally with not so good results. It really does make a difference who you go to! Thank you Dr. Bernitsky and staff. I really can’t thank you enough!
- Carol Wayne Sullivan
Just wanted to say thanks for the excellent surgery. I’ve been post-op for about 16 months now and feeling great. Last weekend I competed at the 2009 Guts National Championship and not only was I on the winning team, but I was voted MVP. The game involves catching a frisbee thrown at speeds of up to 85 mph with one hand. Needless to say, sharp vision is key.
Thanks again for helping me to get in top form.
- Keenan Jackson
Roughly fifteen years ago I was diagnosed with Keratoconus, a degenerative disease that compromises the structure of the cornea. In very advanced stages, corneal transplant surgery is the only option; this is the point at which I came to see Dr. Bernitsky after many encouraging stories from other patients of his. I’ve spent countless hours in many different ophthalmology offices in the city over the years, from independent practitioners to “major label” vision centers. None of them can compare to the level of individualized, professional, and quality care that Dr. Bernitsky and his staff have to offer.
I’ve interacted with nearly everyone on the team, and I assert that every member does a better, friendlier, and more professional job than any of the competition’s counterparts without exception. Office pleasantries are important, but for me the ultimate criteria I consider in choosing a doctor are his levels of technology, experience, and skill. I’m convinced that Dr. Bernitsky has it all in spades.
Where the equipment in other offices and hospitals were totally unable to produce a simple 2D topography map of my old, severely warped cornea, the tools in-house at Dr. Bernitsky’s office can create a fully 3D virtual model of the eye surface in (literally) seconds that can be rotated on any axis for a view of my eye I’d never seen before.
As for Dr. Bernitsky’s skill, I can only offer my personal experience: my Pre-Op consultations, transplant surgery, and recovery have all exceeded my most optimistic expectations, and I am thrilled about having a working right eye for the first time in many years. In summary, you can waste your time like I did migrating from doctor to doctor looking for the best-in-class, or just cut to the chase and go see Bernitsky.

PRK after RK works! I had RK 13 years ago and had PRK in January 2009. What a success! It did take a bit longer to recover than it would have without previous RK, but so worth it. My last check up was 20/20 in both eyes, and actually closer to 20/15. Very pleased with the outcome and the extremely professional service!

What a great experience! Everyone was friendly and professional. I had Monovision done. I can read and glance up at the TV with no problems now! Before the surgery that meant taking off the contacts to read, then putting on my glasses to get around the house! I don’t know why I waited so long! – Kelly Smith
Words can’t explain how I feel about the surgery. I can see again without glasses or contacts. Dr. Bernitsky and staff were so pleasant and very professional. I can’t thank them enough. My eyesight is better now after the surgery than I could ever have expected. Professional, kind, and courteous are three words that come to mind when thinking of the staff and Dr. Bernitsky. Thank you all so very much.

My first visit was such a pleasant experience, the staff was patient and knowledgeable with all of the questions that I had and Dr. Bernitsky spent so much time with me, that my choice was clear, this was the office and the doctor that I would trust my eye sight to. Having a blind child, I have been to many eye doctors and have never felt cared for in a way that I was cared for in Dr. Bernitsky’s office. The staff is friendly and my wait times have been brief. I have talked to many people and the only eye doctor I would ever recommend for Lasik or general eye health would be Dr. Bernitsky. – Michelle Sena
I was nervous, scared, worried and excited all at the same time! Dr B’s staff made me feel so relaxed so quickly. They answered all of my questions as well as shared information with me that I hadn’t even thought to ask..an awesome commitment to customer service that you don’t see much anymore. The results have teen so spectacular, I have worn glasses/contacts since 7th grade and STILL cannot believe it when I wake up in the morning and can see. What a fabulous gift you have given me. Thank You All! – Becky Scheffler
This is so amazing. I can’t believe how great it is to wake up in the morning and just see without having to go put my contacts in. This will be the first year I’ll get to go hunting without having to worry about my contacts. My wife is coming in next. She’s sick of hearing about how good my vision is. I can’t thank all of you enough for everything. It’s better than I ever expected. – Alex Robles
The entire office team is fun to be with. They care about what they do…The pre-operative process was more involved than I expected. It was very thorough, with careful measurements and all my questions were answered about the actual procedure. The surgery was painless and actually quite fascinating. The next day was wonderful. I still cannot get used to not wearing my one contact. It’s great, it’s a better life! - Charlie Wilkinson
A truly first class experience from a professional organization! From beginning to end, all of my questions and concerns regarding my Lasik procedure were eagerly addressed by the knowledgable staff. I was concerned about an upcoming golf trip that was scheduled to begin two days after the surgery. This concern was very unnecessary as I experienced crystal clear vision the very next day. I even made a hole-in-one with the corrected vision just a couple of weeks later! Wish I would have met Dr. Bernitsky years ago! – Brandon Keyser
