Meet Our Patients

“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.”


Richard, Jacksoneye LASIK surgery patient“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.”


Andrew, Jacksoneye Vision Correction patient, Chicago“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!”


Barbara - LASIK Eye Surgery patient of Jacksoneye, Chicago“I had Lasik eye surgery in October of 2007 at JacksonEye. I was nervous walking in for my first consultation, but was immediately put at ease by the friendly staff at Jacksoneye. On the day of surgery, the doctor and nurse made sure I was comfortable and proceeded at my pace – no rushing at all; as I have seen at other “factory type” Lasik eye surgery offices. I was sent home after my procedure, knowing I was completely informed on how to take care of my eyes. I was very impressed with the follow-up too. For the next 3 years, I was contacted and scheduled for follow up appointments to make sure I maintained my new vision, which by the way was 15/20 after surgery and still is to this day!

I would and have; highly recommend Jacksoneye for all of your vision issues. In fact, I recommended my husband, Andy for a new trial procedure that Jacksoneye was working in tandem with the FDA to approve.”


Steve, Jacksoneye LASIK Patient, Chicago“Jacksoneye provides the highest level of eye care that I have come across. Your accomplishments and expertise in LASIK eye surgery gave me a sense of comfort. You and your associates worked with me tirelessly to make sure that I was prepared and informed for my LASIK surgery.

After two consultations I was ready for my surgery. The day of the surgery was just like my prior visits, professional and comforting. You kept me at ease during the entire procedure and even let me pick the music during the surgery. I truly felt that you wanted me to be as relaxed as possible. Afterwards, the staff explained what I could expect and made sure I understood the post surgery medication that I needed to use.

Jacksoneye is more than just an “eye doctor”. Jacksoneye accommodated my schedule, even switching an appointment for me at the last minute. They made sure I understood, no matter how many questions they had to answer.

I would highly recommend Jacksoneye; as I consider your office one of the true professionals in the field of LASIK eye surgery. Your expertise is first rate and you exceeded all my expectations.”


Liz - a Jacksoneye LASIK patient, Lake Villa, IL“Jacksoneye was the perfect fit when it came to having my LASIK procedure. The staff was very welcoming and instantly put me at ease. Dr. Jackson was great, very down to earth and extremely informative about the procedure. I was completely confident in his skills and was excited of the ability to be able to go without glasses or contacts. The day of the procedure, Heidi and Wendy were kind enough to hold my hand, figuratively and literally. The results were fantastic; I was able to see the architecture on buildings clearer than ever before. If I could turn back time I would get the LASIK procedure done even earlier so that I could enjoy its benefits longer. Jacksoneye was the best experience I have ever had at any doctor’s office; they gave me the gift of sight. I will be forever grateful for the vision that I have and I owe it to everyone at Jacksoneye. The staff at Jacksoneye can be described as truly great people; making a difference in the lives of others every single day.”


Brian - Eye Surgery Patient of Jacksoneye, Chicagoland“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.”


Barbara and Leslie Miller, Antioch, IL - Eye Surgery patients from JacksonEye“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.”

Barbara and Leslie Miller, Antioch, IL

Dawn - LASIK jacksoneye patient Chicago“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!!”


Anita - Jacksoneye BOTOX Patient Chicagoland“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.”


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.


Pamela - Jacksoneye Vision Correction Patient“I just want to express my gratitude to you and your support staff for the vision improvements that I now enjoy. This was a big step for me, having required significant vision correction for most of my life.

My colleagues at work kid me about my “bionic” eyes. Even though your booklet explains the various possibilities- it is one thing to “read” about the topic and something totally different to go through the whole process. As I told people in the beginning, I thought it was like changing out a light bulb (it’s not). Looking back, I realize it was far more complicated. All good things take time. There are no guarantees regarding the outcome. Once you start on the path, there is no going back.

There is nothing wrong with wearing eyeglasses, except when you lose them, or accidentally break them. Then it can become a crisis.

It is nice to not be dependent on glasses anymore; to have the ability to see the alarm clock, to look through a pair of binoculars or even a camera view finder.

I have no problem passing along your name to others who may benefit from your services. Thank you.

I hope that you continue to have fun with being a disc jockey for a long time to come.”


Sharon - Toric IOL Patient Jacksoneye, Lake Villa, IL“I am writing this letter to express how grateful I am for choosing your practice and having been a patient of your for over two decades I figure I have the inside track.

As you know, I recently underwent cataract surgery at your office and I feel the need to tell you how absolutely pleased and impressed I have been since my procedure. I am so glad that I chose the Toric IOL you suggested. My eyes have never felt better!! Even the pressure that I was experiencing prior has been alleviated.

Also, I feel the need to address the awesome care that I receive when I visit your office. Not only do I feel confident that I am receiving the best care ever, I also feel very comfortable and relaxed. I enjoy you and your staff immensely. Everyone in your office is so caring, compassionate, friendly, and a joy to be around. I always leave your office with a smile on my face and a warm feeling in my heart.

Lastly, I would like to thank everyone for all that you have done for me over the years. Your services have been and will always be appreciated.”


“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.”


Nicole - Jacksoneye Eye Doctor Patient Chicago“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.”


Troy - LASIK patient of Jacksoneye“I would like to sincerely thank you for the outstanding work you do performing Lasik eye surgery. I was a patient of yours in June of 2006, and chose your facility after thorough research, and consultation with several other local finds. Your qualifications, along with your knowledge and extremely friendly and helpful staff were key contributors in my choosing Jacksoneye for my procedure.

I’m sure you hear many success stories from elated patients, but I would still like to share mine with you. I had my surgery done on a Friday evening and my first thrill was walking out your door and being able to read license plates on the cars in your parking lot. I drove my wife nuts on the ride home reading street signs, business addresses and anything else I could get a glimpse of when I opened my eyes for little “peeks” at my new world. The amazement continued after a short nap and we watched television for a while before retiring for the evening. Little did I know just how spectacular my new vision would be! I was able to drive us to the follow-up appointment the next morning, and then proceeded directly from there to the local Harley-Davidson dealer to purchase a pair of “Pan-Optix”, a sunglass style goggle designed to keep the wind out of motorcyclist’ eyes. You see, that afternoon we had a “biker” wedding to attend, and in true ‘biker” fashion, I was not going to arrive in a four wheeled vehicle. With the aid of my stylish eyewear, and remarkable new vision, my wife and I were able to ride our Harley to our friends wedding and participate in the “biker” ceremony. I had concerns about riding home in the low light conditions of late evening, but those were soon gone as my vision was terrific and even had no problem with the headlights of oncoming traffic.

The next day, being Sunday, is race day for my family as I drive the #83 Chevrolet Thunder Stock at “Slinger Super Speedway” in Slinger, Wisconsin. I know, the motorcycle thing was completely against Doctors orders, and there’s no way I would drive a race care so soon after surgery right? Wrong! Again with the aid of my new sunglasses and a full faced helmet I was able to pilot my vehicle to a season best second place finish! I don’t know if the “new eyes” had anything to do with it, but I’m sure they didn’t hurt.

Nine months later I am still thrilled with my vision and I see something new every day that I’m sure I wouldn’t have noticed when wearing glasses. I speak highly of your talents and your organization’s professionalism every time the opportunity presents itself, and have referred six people to your center. You have actually performed surgery on four of my referrals, and they are as pleased with the outcome as I am. One of the people I referred chose to have a procedure by one of your competitors and was less than thrilled with the outcome. I feel sympathy for the individual, but keep reminding him that he should have taken my advice and gone to you in the first place. I will continue to spread the word of your talents and my extreme pleasure with my new vision for years to come. The referral bonus is a nice program but I would speak just as highly of your organization, and refer people to it if the program were not in place.

I know your vision center is part of a national organization and your advertising is not site specific, but would like to offer a marketing option if some of the advertising budget is discretional. As stated earlier, I drive a car at Slinger Super Speedway and operate the race team as a marketing business. Our main source of income is from marketing partners purchasing advertising space on the race vehicle and I have opportunities still available for the 2007 season. I think the race venue is a largely untapped market in your industry and what a better way to promote your business to new clientele than with a patient that is so thrilled about your performance. With advertisement for your center on my race car, my thrilling success story and exuberant wish for others to experience the same vision that I do, my team could drive new customers to your center in droves. Not only would advertising be for the race fans, but drivers alike. I can tell you what a pain it is trying to stuff a pair of prescription glasses inside a race helmet and get them adjusted so you can actually see properly through them! Please take the time to review the accompanying materials and contact me if you interested in this exiting potential for driving new customers to your business.

What started as a quick note of appreciation has turned into quite the novel! I don’t want to take up much more of your precious time, but I hope you can sense my excitement with the outcome of my surgery. I sincerely hope you seriously consider the marketing opportunity I have presented, but I will continue to spread praise and refer new customers even if you chose not to participate. I am absolutely thrilled with my vision and just want others to experience life without glasses or contacts and be as happy as I am. Thanks again for being a dedicated professional, you have changed my life forever and I am truly grateful.”


Mari - Jacksoneye Patient that had Intraocular Lens Implants“OPEN YOUR EYES!


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 dependant. I use glasses only for reading really small print.

No more fear of blindness.




Mike - LASIK Patient from JacksonEye“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”.


Chicago PRK Patient Julie - Jacksoneye“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.”


LASIK Surgery Heather | JacksonEye, IL“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.”


“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.”


“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”.
