 Read what some of our satisfied patients have to say about their LASIK or cataract surgery. 

Dear Dr. Mills, It has been so long that you may not even remember, but you came into the St. Mary’s ER on a Sunday afternoon to see my son after he had been hit in the eye with a soccer ball. You were so caring and compassionate in taking care of him. You went above and beyond to get him the help he needed. That seems so rare these days and we were so appreciative  and have not forgotten about it. I’m sorry it took so long to let you know. Thank you so much ~Renee

Dear Dr. Mills, Thank you and all your staff for their professional work at making my eye sight better, and it is better.  So Merry Christmas and happier New Year. May God love and bless you all. Thank you for all of your care. ~Jack and Laurie

Dear Matt, Thank you for the excellent care I received in your office. I am extremely happy with the results. I appreciate your professionalism and care. I can see why you have such a great reputation. I am already spreading the word. Thanks again for taking great care of me ~Tara

Dear Dr. Mills, I would like to thank you for your knowledge and expertise in performing my recent cataract surgeries and for caring for me during my post-op visits.  I also want to thank your team at Sierra Vista Surgery Center who cared for me so well and were so kind. There is nothing more precious than the gift of sight, and I appreciated so much your efforts to improve mine. Gratefully Yours ~Leslie

Dr. Mills, I still can’t believe I can see… Science!! Thank you so much for getting me through surgery, keeping me comfortable, and staying so positive. I’ll never forget my Lasik experience and I plan to share it for years to come. Thank you so much Dr. Mills and team for taking care of me! ~Serena

Dr. Mills, The surgery to remove cataracts from both eyes was a huge success. From a 20/200 before the operation, it was improved to 20/15. And the left eye even had a 20/10 for certain letters. I chose the long distance lenses for both eyes and they are working great. I just need glasses for reading and up close activities. Having worn eye glasses since I was in 9th grade, I always had glass lenses instead of plastic because they had fewer scratches from my outdoor job and yard work where dust and dirt was an every day routine. The bridge of my nose always showed the indentation from the frame and it always was red. I want to thank you for doing the surgery and huge success that that I have enjoyed from it. Sincerely, ~John J.W.

I am 2 days post operative for the second cataract surgery performed by Dr. Mills. I can’t possibly express how wonderful my eyesight is becoming by the hour. I am absolutely delighted with what an outstanding improvement I am experiencing. This is a miracle performed on me, a 79 year old woman who has worn glasses since the age of 5. I had strabismus as a child and lots of astigmatism. As the years wore on it became difficult to wear glasses as they became very distorting and were very strong. I had Toric lens replacements which corrected the astigmatism. I see better now as I write than I have in all my life. Dr. Mills, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Know that you have truly made a difference in my life. You are so gifted, and I thank God that you are the surgeon that did this for me. I had what I referred to as a lazy eye, I wore eye patches etc. and wore those thick glasses for 74 years. Dr. Mills you work up my “LAZY EYE”!!!!!. I also want to thank Dr. Schonder and all of your wonderful staff at your beautiful and well run South Reno office. Sincerely Yours, ~Mary H.

Dear Dr. Mills, Today I visited your office for a post-op appointment after my second cataract surgery in the past three weeks. I am delighted with the results. As I remarked on my first post-op visit, it is like having eye drops from the Fountain of Youth. My vision is as it was more than a quarter century ago. You run a thoroughly professional practice. Your building is clean, comfortable and modern. Your equipment is state-of-the-art. Your staff is alert, friendly and meticulous. I would recommend you to anyone facing any eye care issue. Thank you so much for all you have done for me. You, personally, epitomize the word ‘caring’ in terms of your treatment of your patients. Warmest personal regards, ~Mike H.

Dear Dr. Mills, Thank you for taking great care of my eyes during cataract surgery yesterday. You staff is both kind and professional. This combination made my experience so easy and the results outstanding. ~Jan Z.

My Dearest Doc Mills, I can now see and I thank you. I know that you always try to make life better and you have improved my life. I now realize how much I was missing. Your Forever Friend, ~Peggy

I’m now a member of your 20/20 club thanks to you!!! ~Tom

Dr. Mills and Staff, My wife and I recently had cataract surgery in both eyes. Not only were the results great, but the care and attention we received were excellent. Quality work and courteous care have almost become a thing of the past. The doctor and his staff, including those at the Sierra Vista Surgery Center, were very efficient, pleasant and informative. No long periods of waiting on hold. No hours spent sitting in a waiting room. My wife no longer needs glasses and I’m back to 20/20. You truly are health care PROFESSIONALS. Thanks again, ~Fred and Lesley

Dr. Mills, I would like to compliment you and your staff for making my cataract surgery a positive experience. I especially like how cheerfully and professionally I was treated from the first time I walked in the door. All phases of the surgery were carefully explained to me, and all my questions were answered to my satisfaction. When people ask me about my cataract surgery I recommend your office. ~Penny

Dear Dr. Mills and Schonder, Thank you so much for your kindness and professional help in helping my eyes to see better and more clearly. I am thankful to God for guys like you to whom he has given the desire, talent and expertise to help human kind. You have a wonderful and caring staff. In gratitude. ~Barbara

Dear Dr. Mills, I would like to thank you so much for giving me my life back. Thank you for taking the time to listen to my concerns, and helping me make the best choice of lens for my lifestyle. I could not be happier with my results. My cataracts had changed my life in a negative way. I had stopped playing all sports I loved because my vision even with glasses had gotten so bad I could not be competitive, not to mention the safety risk. Driving was a chore. I even thought my television was going out because the picture quality seemed so bad. I am back shooting, playing softball and golf, just for starters…..and my television has a great picture! Special thanks to Donna and Dianna for recommending Dr. Mills. I had seen another ophthalmologist in Reno the previous year. He kept pushing the multifocal lens and told me I would never need glasses again. I was so uncomfortable with the manner of their business that I was scared off of cataract surgery. Donna and Dianna assured me that Dr. Mills could help me, and that my experience would be positive. ~Lisa

Just a quick note to thank you and your associates and staff once again for all the kind and generous services you have provided me during my two brief visits to your facilities and office. I mean everyone there starting from the very first telephone call I received to remind me of my impending appointment to when I walked up to your most cordial and helpful young lady receptionist, whom I might add took upon herself when I had shown up an hour early for my appointment by leading me into the TV room where I was able to watch some of the Summer Olympics, how so very thoughtful making that hour disappear faster that I could have hoped. And yet everyone there was so very helpful, courteous and extremely professional just like your address Professional Circle implies. God bless you all for making my brief but delightful stay there seem so enjoyable, I realize this is not only a job and an important duty but believe me when I say this, you and your staff of professionals seem to make it a pleasure as well, almost like going to Disneyland (well almost). Thank you again and will be looking forward to my next annual visit come this time next year.Yours most truly, ~Ronnie.

Thank you so much for giving me back my sight. It really is better than it has ever been in my entire life. I look forward to seeing familiar things in a whole new light, with more definition and clarity. Thanks! ~Shelly D.

Thank you for the excellent job you did removing my cataracts. The results are quite fantastic as I can now see far better without glasses than I could previously with glasses. Having worn glasses for 65 years, it is certainly a treat to get along without them. There are many details in my surroundings that I now see that I had never noticed before. Thank you again. You and your staff are both caring and professional and a pleasure to work with. ~Cam A.

A year ago you performed cataract surgery on both my eyes and inserted a Restore lens in each eye. I wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the results. I now have 20/20 vision in each eye and see better than since my teens, and am now 75 years old. Of course, I no longer use glasses. I am able to drive at night without a problem. A short time later you performed the same procedure on my wife, Judy. She has had the same wonderful results! We are both thrilled with our splendid eye sight, and appreciate so much what you have done. We would hope anyone in our situation could have you perform their procedure for them. We highly commend you to any such patients! Sincerely, Al P.

I am writing to thank you for your superb care. I presented with no ordinary cataract surgery needs. Three months prior to seeing you in November 2010, I had cataract surgery on my right eye. Despite that surgeon's assurance that my eyesight was steadily improving, I could only read the second line of the eye chart after he had inserted a replacement lens. Even more frightening was the loss of balance and dizziness – not easy to live with when your job requires you to travel around the globe to get a story.
You performed a miracle.
You explained that the lens was 10 times too strong, causing a lack of equilibrium due to the great disparity between my right and left eyes. To rectify the problem, you developed not just one plan of action but two to restore my vision. First, you were going to attempt to replace the lens with a toric one, specially designed for eyes with steep astigmatism. What I really appreciated was how you backed up this plan A with plan B – if there was too much scar tissue build-up, you were going to ameliorate the power of the lens by placing another in front of it. Unfortunately, the lens could not be removed, and we went with plan B. My equilibrium was restored immediately, and now three months after surgery, I have 20/30 in an eye that could only see the second line on the eye chart. You and your colleague, Dr. Schonder, spent hours in exhaustive exams so that I had not one, but two expert opinions about how to restore correct vision. Your patience and patient manner was so comforting that I knew I was in the hands of a hero. Having worked as a consumer health writer for most of my professional life, I knew all about medical errors because I reported on them. I am one of the lucky ones who found a hero to correct mine. Gratefully, ~Sheila S-E

I wanted to thank you so much for taking such good care of me for my LASIK eye surgery. I feel so lucky and blessed to have my vision clear and crisp. and I owe it all to you. I was so nervous a t he beginning of the procedure, but everyone reassured me and made me feel comfortable. I'm not quite sure who held my hand during the actual surgery, but I want her to know that it made such a difference. That small gesture eased my mind and I knew I was in good hands. You truly do have a lovely office and staff, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you all to anyone in need of your service. Once again, thank you! Sincerely, ~Amanda C.
