Satisfied Customers Speak Out

" I have been going to Los Gatos Eye Care for almost 10 years. I initially went to get checked for extreme light sensitivity. I was recommended polarized sunglasses and was not upsold anything. I bought my favorite Kate Space polarized sunglasses which I lost in Belize. My problems with light sensitivity has been resolved. I don't have any vision problems and am probably considered a low maintenance patient. There is no real reason to get my eyes checked out each year, but I do. I go every year and look forward to seeing Dr. Bell and having a real conversation with her about my eye health or whatever topic comes up. She recently educated me about amblyopia, an eye disorder that both my nephew and niece have. She is amazing, kind, considerate, thorough and extremely knowledgeable. She shows genuine care and interest in me as a person which I find extremely rare in health care. We need more doctors with a genuine heart like Dr. Bell that are in a helping profession who are authentically passionate about supporting people. "
