"The very best! - Dr. Kenyon is the leading cornea specialist in the US, and perhaps, the world. When my other doctors gave up on restoring my vision, he transplanted a cornea, provided me with the medications and followup that I have never experienced before from a medical professional. My vision is fast improving thanks to him. Grab him if you can!"



"Dr Kenyon is a fantastic, world-renowned eye surgeon. Staff is great also."



"To summarize...A Miracle Worker!"



"I recently had Monovision LASIK Surgery performed by Dr. Kenyon. I was concerned and skeptical about the procedure as most would be . In addition , since I had near and far sighted eye issues there was a need to do each eye differently . From the consultations to the actual procedure Dr. Kenyon and his team were professional and informative every step of the way . Life is so much clearer now!! I highly recommend them !"



"I had lazily many years ago and doctor Kenyon is brilliant."
