REVIEWS OF Denver Eye Surgeons IN Colorado

Joey Doig

I can’t believe I haven’t left a review for this place sooner! My family and I have been going here for about 15 years. Every member of staff from the doctors to the front office have been highly skilled, professional and kind. Tom has been my guy here for the past 5 years and is one of the finest men in healthcare I’ve come across. He is excellent and knows his stuff. My eyes have always been tricky to deal with and I had all but given up hope for finding contacts that worked, but Tom found a way! Honestly would never have been able to play sports at a high level without him I can wholeheartedly recommend anybody to go here, you won’t find a better place elsewhere!

I love Denver Eye Surgeons. Everything about DES is perfect. I know I can trust the doctors with my eyes. Dr Maus saved my vision in my right eye after a horrible accident. I’ve been seeing the doctors there for 16 years! The staff is so personable. I highly recommend this place!!!


Absolutely loved our experience at Denver Eye Surgeons. Both my Husband and I had appointments on the same day. They were very accommodating and very professional. We highly recommend them and will continue to come back.

Robert Korosec

Efficient and friendly.

James Simpson

On time, professional and through exam. Well Done.

Karen Sauter

Thank you to all I saw today, Dr. Milano, Tom, Bianca, Sarah and one more???? I didn’t wait long and had a good exam. All of you were very professional and friendly.

Lenny Kaplan

The care and concern for my eye health is unmatched.

Ashton Counterman

When I went in, I told them I have a major problems with bright or flashing lights as for the fact that I have epilepsy. I was seen by different people and each and everyone I saw, I told them before hand I cannot do bright or flashing lights. Each of them said oh that's fine we won't do any of that then. Each of them lied to me as that was said. Either it was a bright light shining right into my eye, or a camera that had the flashing lights it didn't matter. I was not listened to at any point of my appointment. I had to have multiple pictures of my eyes done and each of them had major bright and flashing lights. Then as I was waiting on the doctor to come in and see me, a nurse came in and said oh we need more pictures of your eyes. I told them I cannot do any more because I am already dizzy as it is. She told me oh this one doesn't have any flashing and bright lights in it so I agreed. It ended up being a lie as well. This one had a bright red dot and then it flashed when the picture was taken. I do not recommend coming here if you have problems with lights. They are not considerate with your problems and will make you feel as if you aren't listened to.

Janet Sturts

I'm writing this review to let others know- patients and future employees, that Denver Eye Surgeons really does bring their "A-game." I was an employee and patient and couldn't have asked for better care in either category. Each department, optical, receptionist, billing, technicians, IT, Sx coordinators, doctors and practice administrator are all incredible. The staff is courteous, smart and all seem to have a sense of humor! I feel that they are selective with most staff and truly only hire those who are passionate about patient care. Working in the industry, a 30 minute wait time for a doctor and tech (ones that will give you the best care) is really not a long wait time. My current ophthalmology practice was at about an hour wait time and two-three hour from start to finish when I first started. We're not quite at a 30 minutes time yet, but strive to be soon! I don't plan on being in Denver anytime soon, but I know where I would go if I were looking for an eye doctor or career! Oh and I forgot, if you check them out, you MUST go on Halloween- it's pretty incredible!

Karalee McWhorter

I see Dr. Scott Oliver, Retina Specialist. He and his staff are always friendly, accommodating and compassionate. I trust Dr. Oliver with preserving my eyesight! I would recommend his expertise to anyone.

Nilesh Amin

I highly recommend Dr. Kumar at Denver Eye Surgeons. He took the time to answer all my questions regarding my procedure. As a result, I definitely felt comfortable going into it. My surgery went extremely well and the follow-up was great. Definitely visit Dr. Kumar if you are planning to have an eye procedure.

Ashley Bain

Everyone @ DES is amazing! Great staff and great doctors!

Kenny Lewis

Excellent experience. Great doctors and staff!!!

Bill McPhaul

Very professional in all respects. I was told to be prepared to wait a bit. I brought a book but hardly opened it before I was called to begin my eye examination. The doctors (Oliver and Powers) could not have been kinder nor more attentive. Their supporting staff were equally helpful and friendly. I very much appreciate their efforts. -Second visit as good as the first even though the waiting room was even more crowded. Fast and efficient staff, and the doctor, Tetrault, is clearly highly capable and a very nice person as well. This is a very impressive operation. Hats off to all!

Nancy Karas

Proficient, professional staff.

Lyle Sheftel

Very professional, always curious. Just a great experience. Thank you Lyle Sheftel.

Mark Loye

My new multi-focal lens have totally transformed my vision. For the first time in years, I am functional without glasses. I play trumpet in a community band and a community orchestra and no longer need glasses to read my music and see the conductor clearly. At sporting events like professional basketball games, I can even see the players' jersey numbers. I can highly recommend these lenses to anyone contemplating cataract surgery. If you can afford the extra cost, these lenses will essentially restore youthful vision. I am so glad Dr. Kumar discussed this option with me before my surgeries.

Connor Duchen

I recently had LASIK done by Dr. Stahl at Denver Eye Surgeons. I could not be happier with the result, as I now have 20/15 vision in both eyes. I cannot speak highly enough of the entire team at Denver Eye Surgeons!

Michael Clark

Denver Eye Surgeons has fantastic staff. They’re friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. 100% recommend!

Donald James

Great doctors who care about their patients. Friendly and warm atmosphere. I recommend them for all your eye needs.

Stephany Lee

Awesome staff, extremely professional and worth the money. Lisa was the first person I saw and she was absolutely wonderful. She spent ALOT of time answering all my questions. I had Dr. Stahl do my Lasik and he was great. Everything went perfectly and he was very professional, I felt in safe hands during the procedure. It cost a good $4000 but it was worth every penny! I'm so happy I got Lasik done. It hasn't even been 2months yet and the dryness is gone and I see 20/15 and 20/20. I would definitely recommend Dr. Stahl for Lasik!

Lori P.

My sister in-law had lasik done here about 3 years ago and she is very happy still with her results. So, I decided to do it also & are extremely happy with my results too! We both had Rajiv Kumar do the surgery & he's very calm/ reassuring the whole time. If I had to do it again, I would in heart beat. I only wish I would have done it sooner!!

Barb Ward

Surgery seemed very fast. They gave me clear instructions on care while healing. The doctor and office personnel were pleasant and professional. Both the pre op and post op were informative. Dr. Hink did a great job on the surgery.

Kenny P

Doctor Kumar is the best in the business for Lasik and I highly recommend this treatment.

Kaylee Drynan

I absolutely love this place. I have tried other eye doctors in the past and Denver Eye blows them out of the water. The staff are all so friendly and attentive. They value your time and get you in and out quickly and efficiently. Everyone in the optical center is so great especially Penny and they are willing to help with anything you need. There is a good selection of glasses to fit every price range and style. They just really make you feel at ease throughout your whole visit.

Jessica Stagner

Friendly staff that make you feel welcome and comfortable. It’s an amazing feeling being able to see 20/15 in each eye without having to wear glasses. I’m so excited with the results from Lasik surgery! I highly recommend Dr. Stahl if you are considering any type of corrective eye surgery.

kenneth Thornley

Fast efficient service.

Anne Harvey

Definitely going to recommend Denver Eye Surgeons to EVERYONE! The staff is so nice and they just make you feel so comfortable! Overall GREAT experience! Love my new eyes!!!!

Maria Esparza

I am always well taken care of at the Denver Eye Surgeons. They get me in quickly and everyone is nice and polite. I've been going here for years and don't plan on changing that anytime soon.

Gloria Wiggins

Very professional staff and great Doctor.

Mike Bean

I saw Dr. Stahl for PRK, he and everyone else on the staff was great from pre-op through all the post-op checkups, and I'm more than happy with how my eyes turned out.


Denver Eye Surgeons is generally a good clinic. Dr. Kumar is great but the other actual ophthalmologist MD's are a bit cold and standoffish. The optometrists (the ones without the MD) are not too friendly nor seemingly as thorough with the exams. Lately, this location seems to want to insist you see an optometrist rather than a MD unless you have some serious issue. This seems to be a change in the policy for the worse. One suggestion for the clinic overall is that it is a bit of a turn-off when the doctors walk in with a fleet of technicians armed with notebook computers. They seem to want to protect the doctors from questions and want to whisk you away after your exam when this is the very time you may have some questions for the doctor, and the doctor alone. Because of this, the experience can feel a bit rushed and the patient undervalued. This is just a suggestion for anyone at Denver Eye Surgeons reading this. Matt in the optics area (glasses etc.) is awesome though and we have insisted on seeing him for years to fill the actual prescriptions.

Skyla Sauer

This was my first time receiving an eye exam and I am beyond pleased with my decision in choosing to be a patient at Denver Eye Surgeons. From the moment you enter, you are warmly greeted and given clear, meaningful information about the process of your appointment. I saw Dr. Tetrault and he and the rest of his team are phenomenal! They all answered any questions I had and helped me feel at ease. Dr. T is extremely intelligent, thorough, and knows the best place to pack a punchline. What a hoot! Highly recommend!!

Nicole Long Pumpkin

Very friendly staff! Made me feel comfortable

Ashley N

Wonderufl and courteous staff. Doctor was amazing as well, very informative and easy to understand Will be back

Lucia Mears

I can see!!!! Great experience. Until recently, contacts worked really well for me but for the last year I was only able to see clearly out of my glasses. Initially I was ok with that but they got old really quickly so I started my research for Lasik. All places looked good but I chose Denver Eye Surgeons because of their longevity and they are close to my home. I was thankful that I was so close because getting home as quickly as possible is needed for your comfort and recovery. I have had nothing but great experiences with all of my appointments and I felt like everyone was very compassionate to my anxiety. I was genuinely comforted, for that I am super thankful! Thanks you for giving me the gift of sight! I will never take it for granted.

lauri ley

Annual eye check. Following cataract surgery 2 yrs ago

blair christianson

i so value and appreciate dr kumar and his staff. the entire experience for my eye appointment was excellent: timely, professional, thorough, informative, and pleasant. i highly recommend this office. i also really like their Optical department; Matt was most helpful.

Linda Patterson

Quality care and always professional. I feel that this is the best eye care I could receive.

kimberly covillo

Very professional, efficient and friendly place. I would not go anywhere else for my eye care. All the Doctors are great!

Iris Solomon

Dr. Helms. and her entire team is awesome. Love their new offices.

Ryan Kremheller

Highly recommend. I had lasik with Dr. Stahl. I could not be happier with the process and especially with the results. It was painless and recovery was less than a day. The team at Denver Eye Surgeons is so kind and helpful.

Adam Dungan

Excellent service and very courteous. I had LASIK there around 2008 and I am still completely satisfied!

Katie Rainville

Dr. Milano is wonderful, and I truly appreciate how accommodating the staff is despite being freaked out when people touch my eyes!

Gabrielle Keeler-May

I came to see Dr. Kumar for Lasik after my sister's recommendation and successful surgery. I am very satisfied and beyond excited about my now 20/20 vision. Despite an extremely busy office, the Denver Eye Surgeon staff were always attentive and communicative if things were taking longer than expected. Everyone made sure that I was comfortable and prepared for surgery every step of the way. I will definitely recommend them to anyone interested in Lasik.


Seemed nice, and told me that I had three eyelashes that were scratching my eye. So it took about 90 seconds to remove three eyelashes with a pair of tweezers and charged me $150.00 just for that single item! Totally ridiculous, I feel like I was robbed.

Marvin Leibstone

Great, terrific, will return---ML

Helen Huong Vo

I love this place. The Doctor is very competent. The staffs are friendly, nice. I have been using this place to check my eyes since 2012 till now.

Marcia Hecox

Always professional staff and doctors who are leaders in their field. I feel well cared for at Denver Eye Surgeons!

Tom Patterson

I have been seeing Denver Eye surgeons or 8 or 9 years and I have never received anything but the absolute best care anyone could expect. I had an eye emergency on a Sunday afternoon and was seen in office in less than an hour. Doctors Stahl and Kumar have given me excellent care. Tom in the contact lenses department is always up to date on new products and has always given me excellent care for my unusual lenses problems. Tom Patterson

Kyle Heston

Overall great lasik experience. Friendly staff. I had great results. I’d do it again.

Gail Young

Dr. Kumar is a spectacular eye surgeon. He is extremely qualified and as a bonus, is a very kind man. All the staff at Denver Eye Surgeons are professional, skilled and customer focused. I would highly, highly recommend Dr. Kumar and the Denver Eye Surgeons for any treatment for your eyes.

Melanie L

The doctors at Denver Eye Surgeons are top notch. They can run behind at times which can be expected at any doctors office. (I have experienced much worse) The knowledge and friendliness of the staff can't be beat. I will continue to have my eye care here. I refer all my friends and family also!!

Kelsie Parker

Super easy process, and my eyes turned out great!

Mike Meis

Always friendly and thorough. The eyeglass shop is the most helpful around.

Chelsea Morrison

Had my Lasik done here last week. The experience from the consultation and pre-op, through procedure day, all exceeded my expectations. Christine was extraordinarily compassionate and was like having your mom next to you. Highly recommend the facility & staff!

Carly C

I received PRK from Denver Eye Surgeons and it was the best decision of my life. the surgery was fine perfectly and I felt extremely comfortable. I wouldn't choose anyone else.

Allen Christy

Long-time patient of Dr Milano. Great care and great people.

This practice is staffed by professional, friendly people. I feel confident that i’m Getting the best eye care available. I recommend Denver Eye Surgeons for optometry and ophthalmology.

Dennis Kristensen

EXCELLENT service. Just what I was looking for!

Dennis Bridges

The staff and doctors were great. After 2 cataract surgeries left and right eye, I have 20/20 in both eyes. No need for glasses anymore to see at a long distance. Still need reading glasses which works good for me.

Sheila Groneman

As a new patient really appreciated the time taken by everyone (techs, front desk, & Drs., etc.) to ensure understanding of the processes and situation...friendly and professional.

Ross White

I had Lasik performed. Their team is so amazing and professional. It took less than 10 min to do the operation. It was so easy. Didn't even feel anything from their numbing eye drops they used. I now have 20/15 vision. Everything seems so much richer, bolder, and vibrant. I'm glad I went to Denver Eye Surgeons. 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐. Highly recommend you do it now.

Tim Campbell

Denver eye surgeons is so awesome they are so professional everyone knows what they are doing and the do it very well. They truly care about you and making your vision better than it ever was I thank them so much and highly recommend anyone to use them for there vision needs.

Margret Krapes

I am very pleased with the service we received from Jana Romero,. We will always recommend her,

Dakota Reid

Treat your employees better, I will not disclose names at all but please treat your employees better. I have a relative that works with your company and when they come home crying and stressed because all you can do is highlight what they do wrong and completely overload them every single day is not an ideal or proper work environment. People should love their jobs not hate them. I do not know how Denver Eye Surgeons operate with customers and from the looks of your reviews you guys do a good job with customers with mostly positive reviews but the same should go with employees.

Scott Cary

Denver eye surgeons has spent the past 4 months asking my wife to choose her own prescription and rather than figuring it out. Multiple forgotten orders, forgotten call backs and 4 different sets of contacts with the common tag line of "You just need to try these." Now, in order to get it right, we have to pay out of pocket to get someone to actually identify a script or schedule a 6th trip to these people for them to possibly help if they aren't too busy and forget. She is wearing 4 month old disposable lenses because of their factory like approach. We would love to correct this.

Claire Walker

I had a great experience here! Mindy was the best pre-surgery consultant ever. She was very knowledgeable & was helpful with all my questions. I did a same day post-op appointment, so I was hanging out in the office for a couple hours right after surgery. The entire staff was so great & helpful, they were even concerned about me getting hungry & offered to get me some food/snacks/anything I need.

Rosana Warren

Things I loved: Same building as the Doctor, everything explained, very orderliness process, no pain, no heavy drugs, post-op directions clear, and appointment's and payment all set up ahead of time. This was well done!!! Thank you.

Kelley Carlson

Always a good experience! Efficient friendly techs and awesome doctors.

Bella Curless

Lovely and friendly staff! Well trained doctors and I was well taken care of! My mom got her lasix done here and my sister and I get out contacts and glasses from them! I highly recommend this place!!! Love it!

Landon Becker

Friendly staff, fast and efficient. Phenomenal customer service! Definitely recommend!!

N Malcolm

I first went there two years ago. I asked for an MD. They told me the person I was seeming was. The following year I asked for a different doctor as the one I saw was over reactive for me. Again, I asked for an MD. This year I went to make my appointment and found out neither person I saw was an MD. I spoke with the office manager and I was told they have been having this problem and just today they were retracing the people that answer the phone. Beware when you go here! I was also told that there are only three doctors that are MD's. And only ONE for eye exams. I feel this is FRAUD! I had to give them one star but they don't deserve that!

B. Glenn Bartholomew

Do you believe in miracles? I do! I have been wearing glasses since I was 5 years old. My vision was so bad it could only be corrected to 20/40. My prescription was 9 + with my far sighted stygmatizm.My glasses were so thick they were known as coke bottle bottom glasses. Thanks to modern technology and the skillful hands of Dr. Kumar, I am able see,read, drive without any glasses or contacts. Thank you and all of the staff at Denver Eye Center. Miracles can happen to you to. This has been a a life changing event for me and my family B. Glenn Bartholomew

Justin Bagley

Fantastic service!!! The doctors and staff could not be more helpful and courteous. I went in for a standard eye exam, Dr. Kumar was incredibly thorough and discovered a genetic issue with my eye. My vision is now in HD. Thanks again! -Justin

Kaylee Condoulis

Denver eye surgeons is the best! Everyone there is super nice and informative and Dr. Tetrault is the best! Super nice and kind!

Sara Smith

If I could rate a minus star, that would be more appropriate! Ordered glasses a MONTH ago and they are STILL not ready. If you want glasses, go somewhere else!!!

Judy Hoffer

All involved were friendly, knowledgeable, and professional.

E.P. Stein

Denver Eye Surgeons, specifically, Dr. Kumar, literally worked a miracle on my eyes. Despite some initial hesitations with the practice, due to a couple of scheduling and administrative mix-ups, I really wanted to get my laser vision correction (PRK) done here because I had heard the reputation of the doctors. The office is comfortable, welcoming, and modern and the staff are all super sweet. I definitely didn't have any doubts about the level of care I would receive. My only doubt was whether I would have a successful procedure, given how high my prescription was. Dr. Kumar took a ton of time to explain the different options and advise me on his recommendations for my eyes. When I still had doubts, we spoke again a couple of times by phone. In the end, despite PRK being a pretty rough first few days of recovery, I am happy beyond belief with my now PERFECT vision (5 weeks later). I can see better than I ever imagined and it still amazes me that I don't have any corrective lenses. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Kumar and Denver Eye Surgeons to anyone and in fact, I plan to use them for my routine eye care moving forward, which hopefully will just be a yearly exam since I no longer need corrective lenses! One word of caution: do not schedule your appointments when you are in a rush. The time spent at the office is worth it, but it's not a quick in-and-out. Certainly, a small price to pay for very thorough care.

Johnny Wood

I made an appointment to see one of the retina specialist approximately 3 weeks ago after being told I need to see him by another Dr. at Denver Eye Surgeons. The Dr. I was scheduled to see only works at the office 2 days a week so my appointment was booked far in advance. Since then I have received 6 calls telling me everything from there is a family emergency or the Dr. need to leave the office early that day. The fact is I have called back every time they have left me a message and was once told that they had overbooked the Dr. they do not have a very good front office staff and I don’t have time for the same mistake to be made over and over!

Bj Eddy

from the minute you walk in the door the good treatment starts . Dr Oliver and Dr Powers are really awesome, I was lucky to find them.

Olivia Andruss

Love this office and thoroughly trust it with the health of my eyes!

angela coldren

I’ve worked here for 7 years and the Doctor’s are amazing! They truly care about their patients.

Anjali Arnold

Thanks to Dr. Rajiv Kumar and each of the skilled technicians and staff members at Denver Eye Surgeons, I now have almost 20/10 better than perfect vision in both eyes following cataract surgeries. My experience was the ideal confluence of skill, blessing and timing. For the first time since age 8, I can distinguish treetops on distant mountaintops clearly without glasses. I feel a miracle has taken place! With love to each and every one of you who worked with me, especially Dr. Rajiv, and Tom who helped with contact lenses between surgeries, assuring I wouldn't go into visual cortex trauma!

daniella grieve

DES is wonderful. Great location, friendly and efficient staff. They are amazing at what they do.

Ginny Sims

Denver Eye Surgeons is a wonderful clinic. Everyone there is so kind and helpful. They have up-to-date technology and are very thorough and their assessments. I trust them implicitly.

Deborah Huntley

I wish I’d had LASIK years ago! Along with the Kamra procedure, it has greatly improved my quality of life. I work outdoors and do a lot of camping, and it was always challenging to deal with contact lenses for distance vision. When my near vision became poor enough to need reading glasses, that created additional problems. I’m about a month out from surgery now and my vision is fantastic. I have not had to use reading glasses at all. I’m very pleased with the results of my surgery and highly recommend the Kamra Inlay and LASIK at Denver Eye Surgeons.

Taher Dhoon

I was in Las Vegas and ran into an ophthalmologist friend of mine who was speaking at their annual meeting. We got to talking about LASIK and he said without a doubt to see Dr. Kumar at Denver Eye Surgeons. He talked about his skill level, thoroughness, bed side manner, etc... To hear another specialist from another state speak so highly about Dr. Kumar gave me the confidence to make the call. They run an amazing practice, have all the new technology out on the market, and have an amazing team with a high level of customer service. In a time where customer service seems to be getting worse across all industries, seeing it at its finest was a breath of fresh air. I've had glasses since preschool and lenses thick enough to use as bullet proof glass. I can now see 20/15 out of both eyes after 3 days and am told that things will still get even better. Give them a call and you won't regret it.

Daniel Wisotzkey

The people at Denver Eye Surgery are great. All are very friendly and helpful. I was taken care of and was told what was going on.

John Sherman

Dr. Stahl was the surgeon for my Lasik surgery and it couldn’t have gone better. Everything from the prep to post appointments was smooth, easy, and exactly how they said it would be. They only operate on Friday’s but that’s honestly a good thing if you have a normal work week because you’ll need the rest over the weekend and wont even notice by Monday. Would highly recommend to anyone considering Lasik.

Frank Registrato

Holy cow!! This place is AMAZING!! I have been a 24/7 Caregiver for my best friend for 6 years now. He has Autism and is heavily affected by the energy of the Doctors he sees and the environment provided by the doctors office. Let me tell you this - this has THE BEST experience we have ever had. For an Autistic patient the lighting might be a little bright, but when I explained it was so people could SEE and it was an office for eye doctors, that made it okay. He was cool. :-) The nurses are SOOOOOOO incredibly patient and friendly. I thought I was on another planet. Dr. Kumar is seriously one of the most patient Doctors we have ever encountered. You see, David is prone to saying random things, as if he has Tourettes at times. Doctor Kumar just rolled right along with our little circus (which includes David's therapy puppy, Benny). It's important to note that these folks aren't just friendly and kind. They are also VERY PROFESSIONAL. David has a cyst on his eyeball. NOT on the lid, on the eyeball. They moved FAST to get us schedule and in for surgery the very next week. Dr. Kumar let us know that this was something a little unusual, but was so empathetic and caring in his delivery we had no fear. David has OCD. He bumped into one of the nurses and she was kind enough to come over and help him even it out. I'm telling you, this place is AMAZING. So I was already mega impressed and then we did the surgery. Another incredible experience. The team noticed that David doesn't really do well when he is away from me, so they let me put on a sterile bunny suit thing and be there for him during the operation. This was of course until I looked up at the video screen of the surgery in his eye. Two of the most amazing nurses had to help me from the OR to the PreOp to lay down. They took MY blood pressure and gave ME apple juice. I'm just the caregiver and they took care of ME!! Such great folks. I am bummed that I cannot remember the names of all the nurses who helped. There was a nurse that saw David starting to freak out. She was such a pro she walked up and said "I saw your little doggie Benny, he's really cute". They became instant pals and she helped make sure he was super calm. The anesthesiologist was a real PRO. David is on a vary wide range of different medications and she navigated those waters with ease. I don't know why anyone would go anywhere else. Don't worry if the waiting room looks crowded. They run like a very well oiled machine. If I could give them 10 STARS I would. The Vanilla Milkshakes (our band) LOVES the Denver Eye Surgeons. And personally, from my heart, THANK YOU. Being a caregiver is rough and you all helped me find a few minutes of peace in just a regular hectic day for us. Thank you Dr. Kumar and Team. :-)

Mindy Duster

The experience I had at Denver Eye Surgeons was superb. The staff was wonderful to work with and Dr Kumar eased any worries I may have had. I now have 20/15 vision and it is absolutely fantastic!

Julie eck

Everyone was very nice. Explained procedures in detail.

Lindsey Lee

I’ve been a patient here since I was 9 years old (I’m 23 now), and I’ve seen Dr. Kumar for that entire time. He’s a fantastic doctor. Always professional, and just a genuinely nice person. The staff is wonderful at this clinic. I recently had LASIK with Dr. Kumar, and that was a great experience as well. The pre-op visit is very detailed so everything is just right, and they walked me through every step on the day of surgery so I wouldn’t be nervous. I really recommend people go to this clinic for eye care, you won’t be dissapointed!


I decided to have Lasik in Sept. of 2018. That was the first great decision I made. The second was choosing Denver Eye Surgeons. Dr. Stahl, Lisa Smart and the entire staff were incredible. From my first call to them to my 1 month post op. appointment, they have all been so awesome. I am a high school football official, so the scheduling was a bit tricky. They were able to do the surgery on a Monday so I would not have to miss any football games. By that Friday I was seeing 20/15 and loving my new eyes. One month later I am seeing 20/10 for the first time in 40 years with out glasses or contact lenses. If you have ever thought about doing this but have had second thoughts, DON'T, it will be the best decision you have ever made for your self.

Michael Mandel

The most proffessional doctor's and staff. Highly reccomended.

Lorraine Kindsvater

My entire experience was awesome! Plus I see better then ever after Lasix! Definitely recommend Dr Kumar and his staff!

Sarah Wilson

For such a large setup, the staff at Denver Eye Surgeons runs like a well-oiled machine. They are very thorough and everyone I met was extremely friendly and courteous. With all the options or there, I am a patient of Denver Eye Surgeons for a reason!


Had an optometrist recommend due to an unknown eye issue. I don't have insurance and would be paying out of pocket. Was told I needed to see them that day and services would be AT LEASat $350 that would be due that day. No one has that kind of money just laying around and they will not work with you if you don't have insurance. Greedy company don't care about the people fake doctors.

Jamie Martin

I had Lasik surgery a few days ago and the staff couldn’t have been more incredible. From the beginning with Rhonda who is very knowledgeable and friendly, to Lisa who answered several of my questions over the phone and was patient and sweet to Christine and the rest of the staff who prepped me for surgery as well as Dr. Stahl who performed the surgery. They all made the entire process very easy and calmed my nerves. Everything went so good and I am now recovering well and seeing great.

Kathy Z

I recently had cataract surgery at Denver Eye Surgeons. Prior to developing cataracts, my vision was very poor and corrected with contacts and bifocals. Dr. Stahl and his staff did an amazing job and I couldn’t be happier! No more glasses, no more contacts. My vision is now the best it’s ever been since I was 10 years old. I’m forever grateful for the excellent care I received here and the fantastic outcome!!

Bill Hayes

This is a big and busy office, but I found it very well run and the staff caring, helpful, pleasant, and knowledgeable. Both staff and doctor communicated well with me.

Steve Pouliot

My entire family received services from the Denver Eye Center. We could not have been more pleased with our experience! EVERY single member of the team was friendly, engaging, and provided us with excellent care - from the start to the finish of our TWO separate visits. Receptionist, eye exam specialist, Dr. Milano, assistants, billing staff, eyewear specialists - everyone was extremely courteous and spent the time necessary to serve our needs.

Dr. Stahl managed to correct my extremely blurry nearsightedness over sixteen years ago and I continue to enjoy 20/20 vision! YES!!! The majority of my life consisted of scrambling around for the elusive pair of triple thick lenses encased in heavy plastic or praying to St. Anthony that I had not lost another contact lens! I witnessed his skill in clearing my father of his cataracts and I bless him every day for my wonderful ability to see clearly without any glasses or contacts! Hallelujah!! I highly recommend Dr. Stahl and his helpful, positive staff!

Always timely and caring

As a new patient, I was quite disappointed with the overall organization of this business. For a routine eye exam, the entire process took two hours and seven people to deal with from start to finish; few of which communicated with the next (I should note, I had an appointment and it was not terribly busy). Beyond this, the substance used to dilate my eyes took several hours to wear off, causing me to pause for a significant amount of time before driving away. I’ve had many eye exams, both as a new and as an established patient, none of which were nearly as complicated, uncommunicative and impairing to my vision afterwards as this. Many of the staff members individually were certainly helpful and polite, while one in particular at the front desk was quite rude. I understand that all individuals were simply doing their jobs, but the overall flow and communication of one employee to the next was very poor and extremely inefficient in practice.

Kristi Mallow

Highly efficient staff, very helpful and accommodating. I would definitely recommend this practice!

Desiree Parrott-Alcorn

Very efficient - appreciate not having to wait around for my appointment.

Daniel Stepner

As a health care provider, I value my sight. When I found I had cataracts so bad I was rapidly losing my sight, I went to Denver Eye Surgeons for evaluation. I was immediately impressed with their openness to my situation, their integrity and professionalism. From the onset I was treated honestly and definitively. Dr. Stahl's surgical skill made my surgery quick and all follow-up thorough. I would not hesitate to refer to him or Denver Eye Surgeons for evaluation or treatment.

Dr. Stahl and the optical technicians that I worked with before, during, and after my LASIK surgery were incredibly knowledgeable and were able to answer all of my questions as well as help me better my understanding of the risks and potential consequences while at the same time making me more comfortable regarding the procedure. A month after my surgery and my vision is still sharp and clear at 20/15. My experience has been a great one and I am extremely pleased with my experience and highly recommend the team at Denver Eye Surgeons to anyone that is looking for an eye Care professional.

Sam Cadkin

I'm very disappointed with my experience and the person I dealt with at the end was insulting and rude. This was my second lasik consultation. I was hoping for somewhere I was more comfortable. In my previous consultation at another organization the doctors and staff were incredibly helpful and did ALL of the required tests in one day- pupil dilation, eye pressure tests etc... At this facility those tests happen on another visit not covered in your consultation. So you really don't know if you are a lasik candidate or not(but they want to schedule you). I brought up my concern with the lack of thoroughness and I explained my family eye history with glaucoma and that was brushed off as non concerns when the previous facility wouldn't consider recommending me for surgery without further tests. Upon discussing the price ($2200 an eye) I explained that I know of other renowned Lasik centers that were doing it for less and without offering to match the price or talk about any of it she says "If you want to risk your eyes at a cheap eye center go for it." That was the end of our conversing as she led me out the door. This came across as very aggressive and unprofessional to me. I would very much recommend another facility for Lasik consultations. Having had 2 Lasik consultations I can safely say this was an upsetting experience.

Jim Maxwell

Very professional and cheerful staff from the doctors on down the line. Quality of care and service is clearly a top priority.

Nikki Welch

I came here knowing that I would receive great care and a thorough eye exam. I will say that the team here hustles and is very well prepared to talk with the client. Where the ball was dropped and tainted my experience was when I arrived for a 1pm appointment at 12:45 assuming that i would need to fill out new patient paperwork because this is my first time here. I was not seen until 1:35 for my contact and eye glass review, and did not get to see the doctor until 2:40!

Richard Passamaneck

Dr. Milano is very thorough and always tells me just what is right and or wrong with my eyes. I trust her completely. The young women that work with her are very friendly and professional too. Diann Passamaneck

Chrystal Ray

It would be difficult to trust my eyes to anyone other than Dr Kumar. His demeanor and compassion creates a comfort not easily found especially in the medical field. His knowledge, training and experience is exceptional. His team is professional & approachable. Everyone I encountered along the path to surgery demonstrated confidence.

Janis Kaczka

Dr. Kumar successfully completed cataract surgery on both my eyes in October 2018. I could not have been more satisfied with his procedure and office staff. They were efficient, helpful and most accommodating. I would highly rate Denver Eye Surgeons!

Herbert Helm

Very professional treatment in each respect

Lorelle Krueger

I had cataracts on both of my eyes, but the right eye was worse. I had surgery on my right eye and couldn't believe how well I could see, the very same day. I hadn't realized how blurry the cataract had distorted by eyesight. I decided to go ahead and have left eye done as soon as possible. Dr. Kumar was awesome and everyone at the Denver Eye Surgeons were amazing.

Jill V

Super polite and on time. Great staff. Very attentive.

Vanna Castens

I just wanted to say thanks again for the superior service I received at Denver eye surgeons.Dr. kumar did an excellent job of removing the cataract from my left eye and installing a Symphony multi focal lens.I was quite nervous about having my eye operated on but everyone I encountered put me at ease.I am very happy with my new Symphony lens.thanks again David Castens

I cannot speak to the surgery practice and based on reviews I expect it is quite good; the practice was recommended to me for regular eye care and their website suggest they provide non-surgical services. I was seeking a new eye doctor for regular checkups and standard eye care; for this purpose, I was not impressed. I wasn't clearly introduced (or it happened so fast I didn't catch it) to the person who conducted almost my entire appointment, so I don't know exactly what his role/qualifications are. For the purpose of this review, I'll refer to him as a "technician" for lack of better information. The technician took my info and history, did all the various testing - including assessing my prescription for updated glasses, which was the primary purpose for my visit - and finally dilated my eyes with the most intense series of dilation drops I've ever experienced. After waiting for the drops to do their magic, I sat for 20+ additional minutes waiting for the doctor who quickly looked in my eyes (with the light) to assess internal status, and pretty much said nothing except "looks good!" and went to leave quickly. When I asked about floaters he went in for another look and said everything looked good and that was it. I probably shouldn't have driven home, as my vision was seriously impaired by the dilation (I wore two pairs of sunglasses to get home), but was not warned of this when making my appointment and had no other way home. I've never experienced that style of dilation before and was unable to focus my eyes at close range well enough to go back to work (on my computer) - this lasted the rest of the evening and my eyes were still dilated when I went to bed. This is the first time I've ever had my prescription "diagnosed" by someone other than the doctor. And in all honesty, I didn't realize the doctor wasn't going to refine it when he came in. So, when I left I was a little uncomfortable with my recollection of what the prescription felt/looked like, but figured they know what they are doing (and I essentially couldn't see at this point due to the dilation so there was really no point in trying to reassess the prescription). I got my glasses filled elsewhere and it feels like it did at the office - off. I figured it was due to a bit of an increase in my prescription and the astigmatism which always takes getting used to, but I don't seem to be getting used to it. I only wear glasses at my computer and feel like I spend my day (when wearing the glasses) trying to keep my my eyes from crossing. Of course, they warned me if I didn't fill the prescription in-house and buy glasses at their center it would be more problematic if things didn't seem "right". Ultimately, I've decided to go elsewhere to get my prescription rechecked. If the prescription they gave me is right, I'll see if the glasses were made correctly. I just felt like a number to be rushed through at DES, so going back doesn't hold a lot of interest at this point. I can only assume they must be a much better practice for surgical needs.

I’d leave no stars if that were and option. I’ve NEVER felt so mistreated and or felt I was being taken advantage of because I came in under workman’s comp. I was told my appointment would be an hour and a half bc they were going to be dilating my eyes to find out what’s wrong. However I was seen for LITERALLY all of 3 minutes by the “doctor” which was taken of by him looking at my eyes for a few seconds. Then was told nothing is wrong and he essentially said bye as he walked out. Just because you feel that you’re getting paid for the appointment through Worker’s Comp. no matter what so you just want me to get out as quick as possible! My eyes are extremely important as are most peoples and I take it seriously so the fact that my issue was just tossed aside as if it wasn’t a big deal is more than frustrating!! It was so bad I told my employer that they shouldn’t pay for that appointment, it’s not even coming out of my pocket yet it was that bad that they shouldn’t have to!! Pointless, waist of time!

Krista Coyne

The staff and doctors are thorough, professional and friendly. My appointments seems to be quick but I never feel rushed or that I’m not encouraged me to ask questions. I have used other facilities when I lived out of Colorado and one of the most exciting elements of moving back to CO for me, was coming back to Denver Eye Surgeons for my eye care. I won’t go anywhere else.

Hana Wells

I’m very impressed with the entire staff, from front desk to patient care. They are genuinely kind to, and are infinitely patient with, every person walking in to the practice. I saw Dr. Milano and she was great and very thorough.

Alexis Spicer

I have been coming here since I got my first pair of glasses when I was 5, and I would never go anywhere else. The staff are incredibly nice and knowledgeable, and have been the most helpful medical staff I have ever visited. Wish I could rate higher than a 5.
