Very professional staff, even though it was my first visit they made me feel like I had been seeing them for years! Also knew and understood my insurance, So copays and costs we represented quickly.

Excellent service.

As aiways great quality work and service!

Customer service was good on phone and In person. The doctor and all those who attended to were nice and professional 👍👍👍

Dr. Messer does a very thorough and professional eye exam and treatment. She is pleasant and communicates vital information and answers all of your questions and recommends ways to facilitate eye health.

Staff was super kind and timely! In and out in an hour for an eye exam and lens eval. I was a new patient there and they were able to answer all my questions

Everything was fine

Great seeing everyone there! Made me feel very comfortable! Thanks to Becky and the girls who helped me pick out some great glasses!!!

Every team member was friendly and helpful. A great experience!

Excellent visit! Thank you!!

Dr Brooke Messer restored my one eye to normal vision and dramatically improved the other. This by so expertly fitting scleral contact lenses. It was not only the expertise coupled with her confidence that the above outcome was achieved- it was with the calm encouragement to proceed setting aside an abundance of bad memories of rigid contact lenses. I had 2 decades of complications of rigid contact lenses- this prior to corneal transplants. Since then others did not anticipate this success and did not even suggest it! I was so impressed at the ease of insertion, the comfort and improved vision. We glided through every anticipated hurdle. Not a single complication. Dr Brooke Messer succeeded where others fears to tread. I was also guided on interaction with ophthalmologists. The outstanding team approach at The Cornea and Contact Lens Institute is apparent from PRE - entry to POST departure from the Institute. I have and continue to highly recommend Dr Brooke Messer and The Cornea and Contact Lens Institute ! Allan Stillerman

They are perfectionists. If something does not meet your expectation, they will work with you until the problem is solved.

Everyone was very welcoming and the staff was very knowledgeable and willing to adapt.

Messer is great. She took the time with me to answer questions and help me feel comfortable. Best eye doc I’ve had.

I am disappointed that my latest phone calls had not been returned, other than that my appointment was fine. Thank you, Bill Fisher

Very professional, from the moment the nurse took me back until the doctor came in, everybody knew what they were doing, very professional. Compared to lake park clinic where I went before this new place, there's a 0 percent chance I'd ever go back to park lake clinic. The building was nice and spacious and the front of the house staff were pleasant as well! I'm definitely looking forward to my next visit, next week!

Very good and pleasant experience

I appreciated the thoroughness of my exam & continuity of having an assistant.

You took time to listen to comments about new symptoms. The tests done were explained.

Everyone is always friendly and knowledgeable when I come in for my check up. I fully trust that I am well taken care of.

This is the place! None better!

Dr. Messer is fantastic! She is extremely talented and meticulous, and she is always willing to take the time needed to properly examine and fit you for contact lenses. Her staff is also top notch. Together they have created a great culture and atmosphere for their clients.

Well I will start by saying I've been to a ton of eye doctors and specialists. I have keratoconus so I've spent ridiculous amounts of hours going to appointments locally and traveling around the country for for my condition and out of all the options I will say that this dedicated group of people are amazing. From the moment you arrive to when you walk out the doors to leave you can expect friendly staff that are good at what they do and take pride in serving you. The doctors are extreemly smart and and dedicatid to the helping you and great about explaining everything along the way! Make them your new eye clinic and you will no longer dread going to your appts and you will be confident and impressed with how pleasant of an experience it was! Chris M

Great doctors and staff.

Thank you to Kelsey for her on par knowledge and supportive, kind demeanor. Thanks to Dr Holland for your patience and dedication to helping me see as well as I can. I’m grateful for all you do at CCLI.

The staff was friendly, skilled, prompt, accommodating and informative . I would say the same about my physician. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Just a very good, usual visit with really nice professionals.

Everything was so professional. From the front desk admittance to the final checkout. Everything was throughly explained. The technician was very informative as to what the tests were going to show, that he performed on my eyes. Dr. Messer took extra time to make sure all measurements were going to be correct. Nothing was left to chance. I can't wait to get my special lens.

Prompt appointment. Thorough examination. Questions answered. Pleasant staff.

Everyone was very friendly and knowledgeable! It was a great experience!

I got in right away and my eye exam was thorough and well explained.

I felt completely and totally satisfied with a very, very thorough exam. Dr. Messer and her team did an excellent job of explaining everything to me.

Competent and friendly service.

Always great seeing all of you and working with you, thank you.

Brooke Messer is virtuoso in her specialty of scleral lenses for irregular corneas. Her cordial and earnest professionalism is a bonus.

Dr. Messer is the best.She listens and explains clearly. I didn't feel rushed.

Very knowledgeable, took time to explain everything and was very caring.

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

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!

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!

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!

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 professional, excellent, thorough, attentive service

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.

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

Great customer service!

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

Keep up the great work.

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
