    Silverstein Eye Centers Patient Testimonials

    Listen to Frank WhiteFrank White“I have been one of the fortunate people blessed with perfect vision. I have always depended on my vision throughout my career, so I don’t want to take that for granted. I still recognize the need to have my eyes checked to minimize the possibility of a vision problem.

    I went to Silverstein Eye Centers for a routine checkup. From the moment I went in, I could tell this the team of professionals is a caring and compassionate group. The doctor gave my eyes a thorough examination and explained all of the various vision problems that can begin to occur as I get older. Even though my vision is still perfect, it’s a comfort knowing that if a problem arises, I know who I can turn to.

    Thank you Dr. Silverstein for keeping an eye on my vision.

I went to Silverstein Eye Centers and the doctor did an extensive exam of my eyes, discovering I was a good candidate for LASIK.

    After talking with Dr. Silverstein about the procedure, I felt completely comfortable about moving forward and I am so glad that I did!

    It was quick and painless and now my vision is clear and I can focus so much better than before.

    Kevin Seitzer“Hitting a baseball took very sharp vision. I wore contact lenses my whole career, dealing with constant problems with irritation from dust and wind causing dry and itchy eyes.

    I researched several surgeons in the LASIK field and asked some good friends who happen to be optometrists for their professional opinion. They said to choose somebody who is EXCELLENT in this field…with lots of EXPERIENCE…somebody you can TRUST.

    Silverstein Eye Centers did my surgery and it’s been amazing! I could not have been more pleased with the whole process.

    — Kevin Seitzer – Hitting Coach and former Baseball Player, Kansas City Royals

    Mike Young, General Manager of the Independence Center Events Center shares his experience with LASIK surgery:


    Chris Cissell“Coaching college soccer was awkward while wearing glasses, so I tried contacts. The vision was great, but being outside so much wearing contacts made my eyes itch and burn.

    I talked to the doctors at Silverstein Eye Centers. Dr. Silverstein made me feel very comfortable and I went ahead and had the LASIK procedure done. I couldn’t be happier that I did! He was right. It was very quick (about 4 minutes) and it was painless.

    I honestly don’t remember ever having vision this clear before in my life! Doing this was one of the greatest decisions of my life!

    — Chris Cissell – NAIA Soccer Coach of the Year, William Jewell College


    Officer Tiede“Being a police officer, I work rain, sleet, snow, or shine. I was always breaking my glasses and my eyes were too sensitive to wear contacts. I had tried everything, but nothing seemed to be the right solution. That was until I was introduced to Silverstein Eye Centers.

    They corrected my vision and my astigmatism and gave me a gift I did not realize was so precious. The gift of optical freedom!

    — Patrick Tiede – Police Officer, Riley County Police Dept.


    Todd Leabo“When I considered having LASIK, I wasn’t going to trust just anyone with my eyes. I wanted the best.

    My main vision problem was astigmatism. I was amazed at how quickly Dr. Silverstein performed the surgery…it only took about 5 minutes! It was quick and painless and my vision is better than 20/20.

    My glasses are gone and I am seeing everything clearly.”
