Laura Hawkins, Computer Technician, Bartow, FL
The staff is kind, helpful, and very professional. Nothing was ever out of place. This was a pleasant visit. The support staff is incredible. The details are taken seriously by everyone.

I have vision that I never expected to have again. This has so far exceeded my expectations. I feel like I have a new life.

Of course it is overwhelming to have any procedure performed on your eye. Dr. Boxer Wachler and staff worked diligently to ensure a safe, relaxed, and stress-free environment for my procedure.

Excellent care by Drs. Boxer Wachler and all the staff! All the staff and nurses/technicians were “top-rate”! I experienced only a slight “pricking” during the procedure.

Kay Kisser, Secretary/Music Teacher and Singer, Jacksonville FL
This has been by far the most pleasant experience in a doctor’s office. Everyone was very kind, helpful, and went out of their way to make me feel relaxed and comfortable.

Janet S., Legal Secretary/Motivational Speaker, Encino CA
I have had vision problems for more than 30 years. I have had a corneal transplant in one eye; the other had glasses and contact lenses until Dr. Boxer Wachler performed the Intacs® procedure. Then I was able to see again. I actually can read street signs and I can see the mountains, I can see the facial features of passers by. For the first time in my adult life I have clear vision and it’s only been 20 hours since my procedure! G-d bless Dr. Boxer Wachler and his entire staff for their compassionate encouragement, and most of all for the gift of sight.

Paul Beatty, Special Agent, Los Angeles, CA
Dr. Boxer Wachler is very professional, and I felt very safe in his hands. He obviously cares a great deal about his patients.

Sid Hawes, Pilot, Shafter, CA
As a pilot, I was extremely worried about being able to keep my vision at FAA standards. Dr. Boxer Wachler has allowed me to continue not only my dream, but my passion of being a pilot.

Ken Hoffman, Custom Fabricator, Simi Valley, CA
After nearly 20 years of compounding restrictions to my life as a result of continuing degradation of my vision – I CAN SEE AGAIN! I am truly shocked at just how easy the surgery was, and just how much of the world I had been missing. Thank you!

Beth Soto, Paralegal, Riverside, CA
I have had over a dozen procedures done to a damaged eye in the past ten years, with four different doctors. I never have had anything even close to the care and comfort or personal “hands on” care I’ve had here. The doctor and staff are much appreciated!

Many out-of-town patients would like Dr. Brian to do a complimentary review of their medical records and make a preliminary determination of candidacy. This is useful before planning a trip to Beverly Hills.

Some people’s friends ask them, “Why are you thinking of travelling to Beverly Hills for your eye procedure?” They typically answer with, “I deserve the BEST and I want to go to the BEST doctor!”

These are the three easy steps for your complimentary chart review with Dr. Brian:

  • Along with your last 2 or 3 eye exams, please be sure to include a color copy of your corneal mapping. Color corneal mapping is a very important tool, along with your exam history, to determine your candidacy. The last 2 years of your total eye history will be used to make this preliminary determination.
  • Inside the envelope, please be sure to include a cover sheet with your name address, phone number and email address and the words, “Keratoconus Record Review”, so that we may optimize communication with you.
  • Enclose with your letter a copy of your records.
