Testimonials

Melissa recently had LASIK surgery with Dr. Jenkins – see her video testimonial about LASIK and her experience at Jenkins Eye Care.

Dr. Jenkins came highly recommended by many of my friends and family members. I had been wearing glasses for years, but after Cataract Surgery with Dr. Jenkins, I am now glasses free. Dr. Jenkins explained to me what is called Monovision where one eye focuses at distance and the other eye is for near work. Now, I can read the paper every morning, watch television and read the sub-titles of the Korean Dramas, watch my grandchildren play at their sporting events, read the song book at church and cook for my family all without the humbug of glasses. I LOVE it! At first I was a little nervous about the idea of Surgery, but Dr. Jenkins explained the entire procedure to me in detail and made it easy for me to understand. On the day of surgery it was a breeze, much easier than I imagined. Thank you Dr. Jenkins and staff for putting my life into focus without glasses!

My optometrist referred me to Dr. Jenkins for cataract surgery. I was nervous, but Dr. Jenkins and her staff put me at ease immediately. They are efficient, friendly, and really knowledgeable. What I appreciated most was that Dr. Jenkins explained the treatment options to me in details and in terms a lay person can understand. I never felt rushed and was comfortable asking as many questions as I wanted to. Dr. Jenkins performed cataract surgery on both eyes, implanting RESTOR lenses. The surgery was over before I knew it. I walked out relaxed and glad I did it. Post-surgery follow up was excellent. I’ve never thought I would be able to read or see so clearly without glasses. I passed the eye test for renewing my drivers’ license and can do crossword puzzle in the paper. I can sit in the blue section of Aloha Stadium and watch a football game and work at the computer without squinting.

I have been a patient of Dr. Jenkins’ since June 2008. I had been considering LASIK surgery for quite some time and would always ask around for recommendations. Dr. Jenkins’ name often came up as one of the best eye surgeons in Hawaii. Both patients and non-patients who just knew of her work recommended her. I am very pleased with the care I received. The staff is friendly and professional; Dr. Jenkins is always very pleasant. I am usually in a rush and really appreciate that my appointments be timely and thorough. I did not do much research before the surgery, but learned everything I needed to know from Dr. Jenkins and the video I was shown. My vision pre-LASIK was really low and I couldn’t recognize people until they were within a few feet of me. It was a real handicap and quite embarrassing. My surgery was a success. I am glad I did it and recommend Dr. Jenkins to my friends and family.

My optometrist referred me to Dr. Tyrie Jenkins in 1997. I was considering refractive surgery and was looking for a surgeon who would answer my questions and my concerns. From the start I was impressed with Dr. Jenkins and her staff’s professionalism and care. They are courteous and always helpful. Dr. Jenkins showed care beyond the call of duty and scheduled my post-op checkup appointment on a Sunday. Dr. Jenkins is personal and truly cares about her patients. I was very well prepared for the procedure and it was a success. Since 1997, my eyesight has been 20/20. Not wearing contacts and glasses gave me more freedom, especially while exercising in and out of the water. My eyes are very sensitive and contacts were causing my eyes to be constantly irritated. The LASIK procedure also was the foundation to improving my overall health. I continue to refer my friends and acquaintances to Dr. Jenkins for any eye condition and treatment.
