Kellie Cook — 5 starMy daughter had a piece of iron go through her eye when she was only 2 years old. It was the worst day of my life! Thankfully she still has her eyeball but it is sunken in and there is no color anymore. We were sent to a prosthetic doctor to get the prosthetic lens to ensure she has the pressure on her bones so they will grow with her body and so her eye can look as normal as possible. Her first lens was not made by Eric. We had the hardest time getting her to wear it because it did not fit right and it was very uncomfortable for her. And I must say it looked horrible! If she does not wear her lens she will have to have her eyeball removed and have an orbiter I think is what its called implanted in the back of her eye sockett and then a prosthetic over that. As a mother I don't think I will ever be prepared for that! We moved to las Vegas and I found Eric Lindsey on line and got my daughter right in to see him! He is AMAZING!!! He took the time and patience to make sure her lens was right. And it looks Fantastic! I can not explain the feeling when someone says she has the most beautiful eyes! They have no idea that she even has a prosthetic eye!!! I am so thankfull to you Eric and I know Keltzie is as well!! She has no problem wearing the lens you made her. I think when she looks at herself in the mirror she herself is amazed because it looks so real!!! Thank you so so much! March 20, 2015 · 1 Review Like · Comment

The Wellish Vision Institute has far exceeded my expectations. My first experience with them was with my LASIK Consult; several optometrists in Las Vegas referred me to Dr. Wellish. It has taken me six years to finally get LASIK because I wanted to make sure that I found a surgeon that would not take any risks with my vision. I also researched the technology to make sure it is safe. The Wellish Vision Institute has the latest technology to give me the safest surgery possible and the clearest vision I could have. During my pre-operation procedure that staff was very friendly and professional. They were very approachable and were more than glad to answer all my questions. They took their time to explaining the procedure and made me feel comfortable. On the day of my surgery, I was very nervous but I knew I was in good hands because Dr. Wellish performed the surgery. The surgery was fast, painless and best of all–I immediately saw an improvement in my vision. The day after surgery the doctor checked my vision and I was already at 20/15! I see even better than I ever did with glasses or contact lenses! The vision gets better as my eyes heal and I was back to work right away and enjoying the benefits of having great vision. I strongly recommend the Wellish Vision Institute.
I absolutely LOVE this doctor!! She has helped me in so many ways. I don't like wearing contact lens so I wear glasses most of the time. But, she was patient with me and allowed me to try as many different lens as possible until I found the right brand. Now, I wear glasses during the week and then contacts, that are comfortable, on the weekends. I feel great in my contacts on the weekends and then during the week I get compliments about my glasses constantly. The staff was also great in helping me select frames that fit my style and look. In addition, I got prescription sunglasses that look great and people don't know they are prescription. I will use this doctor for the rest of my life and will continuously recommend her to all my friends and family. I highly recommend you use Dr. Mallinger as your family optometrist!!
