Caring people. We have been with them over ten years.

Everyone I encountered was warm, helpful and knowledgeable.

Thank you for taking care of our eyes.


The woman at the desk was very helpful in getting the paperwork from my recent opthamologist's exam. Dr. Messer is a real help to me, with my goofy vision, and is quite informative.

Experience was top notch. Just have to get my cataract surgery scheduled now. Thank you!

Thanks for putting deplacement lens under free satisfaction agreement.

The BEST Doctor's experience ever. Very well done. The staff is outstanding. Dr. Holland is a spectacular, personable, knowledgeable, thoughtful, super friendly & kind Doctor. I couldn't ask for anything more.

Great appointment. Dr. Messer is very responsive and thorough.

Thank you for the great care! Everyone took time to make sure that they understood my needs, and we're very helpful. I would highly recommend C&C Institute to everyone!

I had an auto accident in 2016 which resulted in a Traumatic Brain Injury that greatly affected my vision. I sought treatment at HCMC and was later referred to the Cornea and Contact Lens specialists. They take great care in finding what works for you and your needs.

Dr. Messer is the best! She cares about you and is always willing to see you and explain things in detail. The office personnel are great too, they make sure you are able to talk to the Doctor. I'm so thankful that they are not a big cookie cutter practice!

You were focused on my well being

Never a bad experience

The whole experience was fantastic, from the pleasant greeting from Madison to the thorough assessment by Colin, to the very professional analysis and recommendations by Dr. Messer, to Kelly’s in depth knowledge of and assistance. The entire team gave the me the sense that they really cared about giving me the best service possible, and that they had a vested interest in the ultimate outcome. A great team effort!

Collin was very personable while giving me a thorough exam. Also appreciated all the explanations & answers to all my questions by Dr. Messer.

I am very satisfied with my appointment. I was seen in a timely manner and would recommend Dr. Messer to anyone.

My "old" prescription from Allina was more accurate than "new" prescription by Cornea Contact 3 years ago. Cornea Contact gave recent prescription that was like old Allina prescription.

Short wait time and friendly interaction

Warm, professional, knowledgeable service. Very satisfied with all staff members.

All staff members pleasant and efficient.

Great quality care and concern by Dr Holland and the staff. Fun personalities and very helpful picking out new frames and the best lenses for my conditions. I will not go anywhere else!

Friendly atmosphere

Good exam and answered all my questions.

It is better if your clinic could send notice note, any of email or text message when appointment is approaching

Great experience as always. Everyone is easy to deal with and so friendly.

I felt very comfortable with all of the staff.

Very quick. Doctors were very informative

Started about 20 mins late so that was disappointint, but after that everything was great.

Appreciate the knowledge and expertise

Prompt, informative, caring & great follow up.


Dr Messer got me right in and was very professional as always.

I have eyes that are very difficult to work with and have worked with many doctors over the years. No one except the people at Cornea & Contact lens Institute have EVER been able to properly correct my vision. In my opinion these people are as good as you'll ever find anywhere.

Friendly office with very knowledgeable staff willing to take the time to answer your questions in an understandable way.

I always see better when I leave! My exams are thorough and my questions are answered. Thanks!

Excellent service!

Very good experience

Very professional makes a patient feel comfortable

A very thorough exam, friendly people, smiling faces, and answered all my questions so that I could understand them.

Great customer service!

I was little upset that I was not seen on time. I expect that if you offer a 8 am time slot I will be seen then. That is why I make a first thing appointment. Otherwise everything was great as normal Happy holidays Joe

Keep up the great work.

You are helping me to see! The docs are wonderful!

Listened to what I had to say and gave me some contacts to try

I started having problems with my vision since I was a kid, but my ability to see without contact lenses has become very bad over the past 17 years During the last 2 years, I started having eye exams with Dr. Messer, and I can say that I am very satisfied with the results. Massyli
