What our patients say:

  • "I had cataract surgery with premium IOLs in 2015. I can still remember being wheeled down the hallway after surgery and I noticed for the first time the second hand on the clock hanging from the wall. I was so happy with the surgery, and five years later I’m just as happy!"
    Cheryl Bean

  • "Wonderful experience! Staff were all friendly and professional. The experience from start to finish was wonderful! I would recommend family and friends to Jacksoneye. The best part… I CAN SEE! 😊"
    Mary L.

  • "I received the iLUX dry eye treatment and WOW, the results are amazing!  My dry eye is way better!  The treatment was way better than I thought.  I don’t wear contacts or glasses so at first I was worried, but the doctor was so calm and patient.  Once the process started I was happy because it was so easy!  Worth the money!  I can’t wait to get this iLUX again because I believe in maintenance for better eyes!"
    Patricia Michelli

  • "The treatment I received at Jacksoneye was thorough, innovative and incredibly helpful. My eyes have been so much better since visiting Dr. Bollinger."
    Alexandria Luppi

  • "LASIK is worth it. It wasn't scary and the procedure actually was  great. They had music on and that honestly made you feel like you were in a club! Best decision I made to help save money in the long run. Just go in and get it done."

  • “I had an excellent LASIK experience with Dr. Jackson. The procedure itself was very quick and only mildly uncomfortable. The special part of my experience was the politeness and courteousness of the wonderful staff. Their kindness was a blessing. Dr. Mitchell Jackson has the BEST medical staff of any medical office that I have ever been to. I would highly recommend Dr. Jackson’s services to ANYONE”.

  • “My overall Lasik experience at Jacksoneye was a good one. LASIK is unbelievable and has made my life a lot easier. The staff at the desk; the nurses and the doctor himself was all very warm and friendly; REAL people. A few of the staff eased my fears concerning LASIK by relating their own experience with the procedure; quite a few have had it done themselves. It was VERY comforting. I would definitely recommend Jacksoneye to other people; as a matter of fact… I already have.”

  • patient testimonials2

    “I am absolutely thrilled with the LASIK procedure I had done at Jacksoneye. Everyone has been wonderful and I can’t thank you enough. Overall this has been a GREAT experience. Thank you; thank you; thank you for the amazing opportunity to improve my life. The results of this procedure are life changing. On a scale of 1 to 5; Jacksoneye is a TEN.”

    “Everyone was very professional and extremely kind during my PRK / Lasek / Epi-Lasik procedure. They took a personal interest in me and it showed. I was provided with EXCELLENT information prior to surgery and this really helped to ease any distress or uneasiness I otherwise might have experienced prior to the procedure. I was given definitive time frames and knew exactly what steps awaited me during all parts of the procedure; before, during AND after. I was COMPLETELY satisfied with the level of service and care I received at Jacksoneye and would most certainly refer people to this practice again and again.”

  • patient testimonials

    “The LASIK procedure I had performed at Jacksoneye went smoothly and without a hitch. Dr. Jackson kept me informed EVERY single step of the way so that there were NO surprises. I was EXTREMELY satisfied with my experience the day of the procedure; the day after the procedure and every day thereafter. Jacksoneye really practices the Personal Touch philosophy that other doctors only profess to believe in; I received a follow up call after the procedure from the staff at Jacksoneye with the intention of seeing how I was doing and offering assistance as needed. What an outstanding experience. I would most assuredly recommend Jacksoneye to my friends, family members and associates”.

    “OPEN YOUR EYES! IF YOU WANT TO SEE MORE CLEARLY MAKE AN APPOINTMENT TO SEE DR. JACKSON. I did and had cataract surgery with intraocular lens implants in both my right and left eyes. Later I had laser surgery on both eyes. My vision has improved so now I can see more clearly and no longer am spectacle dependent. I use glasses only for reading really small print. No more fear of blindness. THANK YOU DR. JACKSON & STAFF FOR YOUR EXCELLENT CARE. YOU ARE ONE IN A MILLION!!”

  • patient testimonials

    “I am 18 years old. I was once an ordinary patient at Jacksoneye. I saw Dr. Jackson once every year, until November 13, 2009. At that time Dr. Jackson discovered I had a brain tumor. I had no symptoms of a tumor other than a loss of vision in my left eye. I am a proud patient of Dr. Jackson and plan on continuing my check-ups regularly. The Jacksoneye staff was helpful and comforted me during a very scary time; I had no idea what was going on with my vision and in my brain. The girls in the office helped schedule my next appointment; which was to see a Neuro-Ophthalmologist. If I wouldn’t have seen Dr. Jackson that day I would not have known I even had a brain tumor. I am glad Dr. Jackson is so kind and sweet. I couldn’t have asked for a better eye doctor. He helped save my life.”

  • “During the time I have been visiting Jacksoneye as a patient, I have been very satisfied with the quality and attentiveness of Dr. Jackson. He is very dedicated and does a very good job. He is attentive to each any every one of his patients and is very concerned for their well being. I have been a patient of Jacksoneye for the past nine years and plan to do so for a very long time. I am pleased with all the care that Jacksoneye has to offer. Dr. Jackson is a person who is dedicated to his profession 100% of the time. He is a very attentive Doctor who knows what’s best for his patients and tries his best to assure they receive the best ocular attention.”

  • To Doctor Jackson and staff, You always treat your patients with courtesy and respect, everything was explained fully. I would recommend you to my family and friends. Your staff worked together to take care of me.

    “I just want to thank you for making me feel “special” during my Botox experience and the results!? I feel 10 years younger!! Everyone in the office is friendly and very knowledgeable. I can’t wait till my next treatment.”

  • patients

    “I can’t explain in words how much my new vision has changed my life. Having the Lasik procedure is the best thing I have ever done for myself. I can experience the joy of motorcycling and outdoor activities without my glasses. It’s great to wake up in the morning and see the clock without fumbling for my glasses. I would recommend you and your staff to anyone. Thank you…thank you…thank you!!”

    “My husband and I are so happy that we had eye surgery. Everyone involved was so professional and always answered whatever questions we had. Neither one of us wears glasses except for reading, which is truly a new experience for us. For the first time in my life, I do not have an eyeglass restriction on my driver’s license. Thank you Dr. Jackson. We really appreciate all that you have done for us. We highly recommend the surgery for cataracts.”

  • patient testimonials

    “From when I first arrived, I was treated with the low pressure and friendly service that seems to be the atmosphere at Jacksoneye. I felt no additional push to have the surgery after my consultation and always felt in control of my situation. From Dr. Jackson down through the staff, any problems or questions were answered quickly and honestly. The procedure was swift and easy and recovery was even easier. Follow up appointments were scheduled around work and the frequency was adequate yet not overbearing. Overall, the experience was good and I would recommend at the very least a consultation for those considering eye surgery in the future.”

  • patient testimonials

    “Two years ago I visited with Dr. Jackson in regards to a new procedure he was in the final stages of testing for; to see if I met the candidate criteria. I did meet the criteria and Dr. Jackson performed the procedure. The entire experience over the last two years, under Dr. Jackson’s expert care, has been greatly rewarding and educational. I always look forward to my doctor’s appointment. His staff engaged me as if I was part of their own family; caring, sincerely warm and appreciative of my time. Dr. Jackson is a shining example of true professionalism and is a leading expert in his field. I cannot thank Dr. Jackson and his staff enough for all they have done for me!”

  • patient testimonials

    “I had Lasik surgery in May 2005. I had worn contact lenses since 1961; gradually evolving from the hard lenses to the smaller soft lens. I researched Lasik surgery online and choose Dr. Jackson due to his reputation. The experience was very positive. My vision was 20/20 almost immediately. What surprised me is how much my night vision improved. Being a senior citizen, seeing at night had always been a problem. My vision continues to be 20/20 with excellent night vision.”
