“I am a missionary, so I travel a lot. I just went on a trip to Africa, and because I no longer needed reading glasses or prescription sunglasses, I could see the beautiful smiles and breathtaking scenes of Africa so much more clearly. Thank you, Dr. Christenbury!”

“My husband and I had the ReSTOR procedure performed in February 2006 and we are both so pleased with the outcome. Your staff was exceptional and the thorough testing created a comfort zone, which relieved all anxiety in regard to the surgery. I have never experienced such complete and thorough testing, and such a kind and comforting staff.
My husband enjoys woodworking and was getting to the point that he could not do this work due to his poor eyesight, and I enjoy working with the computer and refinishing furniture and it was becoming more difficult to perform these tasks. The surgery was pain-free, and the follow up from the Center was great. Thank you so much for giving back our eyesight. A member from your staff (Christie) called to ask if we would be willing to do a photo shoot and a testimony upon our return to the Center for a follow-up on June 3, 2006 and the answer is ‘definitely yes’ – We both have 20/20 vision in both eyes and are so thankful to Dr. Christenbury for giving back to us our precious eyesight.”

“Dear Dr. Christenbury,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you the women and men in research that created the ReSTOR lens. Thank the Lord for the gifts He has given you to implant the lens into my eyes. You Are The Best! You have been used of God to give me back the vision that father time had taken away.
Yours In His Tender Care,”
– John W. Chatfield, 20/20 Right Eye, 20/25 Left Eye
“Dear Dr. Christenbury,
I just wanted to send you a short note to let you know how pleased I am with the ReSTOR Lenses that you implanted for me. I don’t like admitting that I am over 40 – and try not to look it – but pulling out those reading glasses gave it away time after time!
I proudly read menus, the newspaper, stock quotes, recipes, my work on the computer screen and small print paper back books without the aid of reading glasses that I spent hours looking for over the past few years!
Thank you for giving me the gift of youthful sight again!”
– Ms. Keith Bayless, 20/25 Right Eye, 20/20 Left Eye
“Dear Dr. Christenbury,
Kudos to you and your staff for making my experience at the Christenbury Eye Center a positive one. From the moment I walked into your state-of-the-art facility, I felt confident that I was in the right place.
If nothing else, your knowledgeable staff led me through the most thorough annual eye exam of my life. When all was said and done, I met your for a summary of their findings; the beginnings of cataracts. I found your ‘bedside manner’ both friendly and welcoming and found a confidence in your explanation of my condition.
After years of diminishing eyesight, I realized that cataract surgery was definitely the choice for me. I listened to my options, selecting the ReSTOR lens that would allow me the freedom of never wearing glasses again. Just the fact that I’d never have to ask…‘has anyone seen my glasses?’…was enough enticement for me.
My surgery was pain-free; a very real concern for most people. Your staff, during the whole process, was kind and comforting. Having some post-surgery worries, I called the office and you personally called back to tell me I was right on track…everything was fine.
Hallelujah…what a great choice!! I still find myself reaching for the glasses I’ll never need again; years of habit.
Thank you, Dr. Christenbury, for giving back to me the ‘eyes of my youth.’”

“I am a truck driver and did not realize how bad my vision was before having the ReSTOR procedure. Not only did Dr. Christenbury save my vision, he saved my life. I cannot believe the difference! I would recommend Dr. Christenbury and the ReSTOR procedure to anyone!”
– William Moree, 48, 20/20 Near and Distance Vision
“The ReSTOR procedure was simple and painless. Colors are brighter, and for the first time in years, I can drive, read or work around the house without having to put on my glasses. My vision went from 20/200 to 20/20…overnight! I recommend the ReSTOR procedure to anyone who wears bifocals or needs cataract surgery, and I definitely recommend Dr. Christenbury and Christenbury Eye Center for the procedure!”
– Steve Watkins, 20/20 Near and Distance Vision
“I don’t know where to begin to thank you for the outstanding ReSTOR/ReZOOM procedure you performed on my eyes. I am still astounded that you could take me from 20/400 to 20/30 on my near vision and from 20/40 (right eye) and 20/60 (left eye) to 20/30 in both eyes on my distance vision within the space of half a day! Now I know why you were rated number one in the nation for the ReSTOR/ReZOOM procedure. I can honestly say I had virtually no down time. I felt well and fit enough to go to the gym by the next day even though I refrained due to your instructions not to lift any weights over 25 pounds until further instruction.
In my work as a psychotherapist, it is essential that I have good eye contact with my clients. Thus, taking away the barrier of my reading glasses has helped me feel more present with my clients. Furthermore, my passion for adventure will no longer be dampened by my need for reading glasses. For example, I recently climbed South Africa’s highest mountain culminating in a 100 foot vertical chain ladder with my reading glasses dangling around my neck at the end of a “granny chain” — not quite fitting with the rugged, outdoor image I was trying to portray! No longer will I have to deal with that kind of inconvenience.
I was most impressed with your leading edge equipment and the friendliness and service provided by your very capable technicians and staff. Although you have a thriving practice with many clients, I was made to feel special by everyone I met.
Once again, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your special gift with the world. I will not hesitate to recommend you to my friends, family, and colleagues.”

“What a wonderful 60th birthday present from my husband! I have always been an avid reader and now it means so much more to read the newspaper and my favorite books without glasses. I’m so thankful for Christenbury Eye Center and all the excellent work that is done for all patients!”
– Kathy Hammer, 20/20 Near and Distance Vision
“My eyes were previously damaged from medication but now, thanks to Dr. Christenbury, I am 20/20 in both eyes! Things that have always been difficult for me are now easy – like reading the smallest print in the newspaper without glasses. I am a special needs nurse and the children that I work with were always pulling my glasses off – the only thing that I need glasses for now are sunglasses when I am riding my new motorcycle. I am having the time of my life!”
– Linda Hojnacki, 50, 20/20 Near and Distance Vision
“I used to have people at work look in the phonebook for me to see the small print…now, I can do this on my own! I enjoy crafts and now I can do this more easily without glasses or contacts. Everyone asks who performed my surgery, and I happily tell them Dr. Christenbury! Dr. Christenbury is so personal, and I am very impressed with both Dr. Christenbury and the Restor procedure! Now, I can throw all my glasses away!”
– Diane Randall, 50, 20/20 Near and Distance Vision
“I am totally happy with the ReSTOR procedure. I don’t need glasses for anything, period. What also impressed me was that the Christenbury Eye Center facility and staff ran like a well-oiled machine. Dr. Christenbury was excellent. I can see print in newspapers and telephone books like never before. I would highly recommend this procedure!”
– Brenda Culp, 61, 20/20 Near and Distance Vision
“It thrilled me to death to actually see to be able to put on my earrings! I can even see people’s features…before, I couldn’t tell who people were as they walked up to me! I can read the small print on medicine bottles, and Dr. Christenbury says that it will only continue to improve. Just to be able to thread a needle without any glasses has truly changed my life. I really appreciate what Dr. Christenbury has done for me!”
– Paula Bridges, 56, 20/20 Near and Distance Vision
“The ReSTOR lens has allowed me to go completely without glasses for reading, intricate quilting, and performing my job as a Physical Therapist. I can go into a restaurant and order off of the menu without pulling out glasses. I feel like I have been given new eyes and Dr. Christenbury has been my miracle worker!”
– Nell Weddington, 20/20 Near and Distance Vision
“I was born with congenital cataracts, and I also had old age cataracts, so my vision was deteriorating quickly. The staff at Christenbury Eye Center were very polite and accommodating, going out of their way to make me feel relaxed and comfortable. Thanks to Dr. Christenbury, I can now see to read even very small print without any glasses.”
– Nancy Simmons, 20/20 Near Vision, 20/25 Distance Vision
“It’s wonderful. I am 60 years old and I no longer need reading glasses! Thank you, Dr. Christenbury!”
