Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "If you don't live in Gold Canyon, it is worth the drive. The Eye Center got me in right away to examine worrisome issues with my eye. The office is clean and inviting. Everyone working there is professional, friendly, pleasant and helpful. Dr. Carlson was thorough and detailed and explained everything clearly and precise. I highly recommend this eye care center."
    Linda Swenson Weston
  • "Dr. Cheng is very thorough, keeps copious notes and is very attentive. She explained everything to me and made sure I understood everything about my eye health."
    Cathy F.
  • "As a result of RK surgery 25 years ago, my cornea ~ left eye ~ was concave making corrections difficult and inadequate. I thank my lucky stars that I was guided to Dr. Carlson at the Gold Canyon Eye Center. He fitted me with Scleral lenses that now have me back to crisp 20/20 vision. He is thorough and concerned about making sure everything is working as it should. Couldn't ask for better care. The support from his staff makes each visit a pleasure. A huge thank you from the bottom of my heart!"
    Sue Bryant
  • "I found Dr. Cheng to be pleasantly informative and very simple to understand in her explanations of what the tests were for, why it was important to do them and how to keep and maintain my personal eye health. I highly recommend making Dr. Cheng your eye doctor for yourself and your family as well."

  • "Great staff!! Love these guys everyone is very helpful and personable!! Dr Carlson is so thorough and takes time to really explain things! ( the "how's and whys") He is just a kind, down to earth kind of Doc and has a fun laugh!! Don't be fooled by the fact that he looks like he's only 20!! He's been in the eye business for many years and knows his stuff! If you're looking for an eye Dr. don't hesitate for a moment! They also have a great selection of magazines in the waiting area but you never wait long enough to finish reading!! Gold Canyon Eye Center Rocks!!!"
