    Dr Belmont has been my eye doctor for the past two years. She is wonderful. Very easy to talk to about eye concerns with many years of experience.

    Belmont is great, I had my Lasik surgery 3 years ago and wanted to wait a while before leaving a review. Everything has been great & my vision has been a consistent 20-15. Dr Belmont is a pro and her office breezes you through all the follow up visits.

    I have seen Dr. Belmont several times over the years and have always found her to be extremely knowledgeable, professional - and a very skilled surgeon. Not only is her level of competence very reassuring, but she takes the time to thoroughly explain what she needs to do, and why. She has done very delicate procedures on my cornea and I see perfectly now. Very grateful my ophthalmologist recommended her.

    Dr Belmont is the most brilliant cornea doctor I have met. She has looked after me for over 15 years and has done two cornea transplant on my left eye. She is very caring and always available when I need her. She is very professional and I would recommend her strongly to any one requiring an excellent cornea specialist
