Read a handwritten letter from a patient (PDF Format) -- Melissa Sep 22nd 2011
"I was legally blind and have worn glasses since I was six years old. I could not do anything without my glasses. Even now, 10 years later, I am still ‘moved to tears’ about my vision. I am able to live completely without any glasses. Dr. Schneider gave me monovision and I do not need readers, so I am totally free from any glasses!
Dr. Schneider is a real blessing to me and I continue to recommend him to my family and friends. I am here today with a friend having cataract surgery with Dr. Schneider. He is one of the best doctors around.
It has been one of my greatest experiences to see clearly without glasses or contact lenses. If you are considering LASIK surgery, my advice is that you “go for it”. It’s the best thing I have ever done. God bless Dr. Schneider for all the patients he has helped."
"I was born deaf in my right ear and have reduced hearing in my left ear. I also was very nearsighted in both eyes (-8.00 diopters). It was always a struggle to see and to hear before my LASIK surgery. I came in with a friend and we both met with the doctors here at MidWest EyeCenter. We both moved forward and had LASIK surgery on the same day!
LASIK has been the best gift I have ever given to myself. Dr. Schneider offered me the chance for the Custom treatment. My husband and I were not sure that we could afford the extra fees at the time, but decided to listen to Dr. Schneider. My husband told Dr. Schneider to "give me the best possible treatment". The staff was wonderful, comforting and caring. They even gave me Seymore (the bear) to hold during my procedure. I can remember reading the letters and numbers on our VCR and was so happy, I cried. I have enjoyed star gazing as my night vision is also perfect. I actually can see better now than I could ever see even with my glasses!
I do not have glare or halos at night, so night driving is great. I can enjoy the beach and outdoor activities without fear of losing my glasses or not seeing what I want to see! I am deeply thankful to Dr. Schneider and his staff for my vision results.
If anyone is considering LASIK Vision Correction, it is the absolute best gift you can give yourself. The whole experience is life changing in more ways that you can imagine. In my opinion, there is not a better place to be than in the hands of MidWest EyeCenter.
Thank you again to the staff and Dr. Schneider."
"I had worn glasses since the age of thirteen. It was common to have my glasses slip down my nose on a hot afternoon and fog up as I walked into a warm room from the cool outside. I was constantly wiping my glasses on a rainy afternoon. I was always cleaning my glasses. Some of my friends had RK surgery and I decided to get an exam. I've known Dr. David Schneider socially and at the time he had performed radial keratotomy surgery over 10,000 times. Dr. Schneider is recognized as the best in his field. The operations were quick and painless. The right eye took five minutes and the left about three minutes. I had no discomfort at all. As my wife drove me home from the office, I kept reading the road signs without my glasses. In bed I could see the time one the clock radio without my glasses. I woke up, looked out the window and actually saw the paper on the front yard. I saw the Reds from the red seats better than I ever saw a game with my glasses. My son's college football coach thought I looked thinner. Several friends commented that I looked younger. What happened to me -- How did I change? I wasn't wearing glasses. I was over fifty years of age and wore bifocals when I had the operation. I can see without glasses. I consider it a miracle. Thank you Dr. David Schneider."

"I just completed my second eye cataract surgery and wanted to comment on my experience. I couldn't have had a better, easier, painless procedure anywhere else. Dr. Schnieider and his whole staff made this a pleasant experience and the treatment and care given to patients was above and beyond. Everyone in your office treats patients and their caregivers with the utmost respect. I would recommend you to anyone in need of these services. Thank you,"
--John and Carol Lee
"I would like to thank you for the recent operation on my wife. Now that you have done corrective surgery on her, here is a list of the things that she can see now that i never had to worry about:
- Me making hand gestures at her from across the room
- Me making faces at her from across the room, or up close, it didn't matter
- Me hitting the cat, but never the kids, they would tell on me
- Me throwing things at her from across the room, would blame the kids, but again they would tell on me
- Me telling her to answer the cordless phone, it was never in the same place and it was a kick to watch her find it
- The kids making faces at her, but I would tell on them
- Brushing the food particles that fell from my plate under the couch, I will have to clean that up now
- Rearranging the furniture, never did it, but thought about it
But seriously, we can never repay such a thing as you have done, for the first time she can see the world in a way that I have always taken for granted. If there is anything that our family can do for you then please let us know. Thank you."
"I am writing to you express my great thanks for the quality and kind experience I had with my Lasik procedure. My results have been nothing short of a miracle. I have been wearing glasses or contacts since I was eight years old and for the first time that I can remember, I woke up this morning and could read the numbers on my alarm clock. For those who are blessed with good vision, this simple example will seem meaningless. For those who do not, this is a Godsend. You should all feel proud of what you do and how it so deeply touches peoples lives. Thank you again and may God bless each and every one of you"
--Timothy J. VonDerHaar
"I want to thank you for the wonderful thing that you have done for me. Without your kindness and generosity, it would have never been possible for me to have my sight restored. There is no way that I could ever repay you for what is a miracle to me, but please know that you will be in my prayers for the rest of my life."
"I made it to St. Croix three months ago. My eyes are doing great. I got P.A.D.I. certified (S.C.U.B.A.) & I've been doing a lot of diving. I got three lobsters on my last dive. That was the most fun I had since I been here. The salt water had absolutely no effect on my eyes. Chlorine bothers them the same as before I had my operation, not too much. The weather here is great, we are having a very cool summer. I hope to see some of you down here for the winter. We have a number of rentals available. Please feel free to call anytime. I may be home in October. I'll be in for a check up."

"To be able to see without my glasses was one of the greatest things that ever happened to me. Since having LASIK my vision is 20/20. A painless ten-minute procedure gave me perfect vision, it’s unbelievable."
--Cris Collinsworth- Emmy Award-winning American television sportscaster and former college and professional football player.
"After 40 years of the discomfort of glasses and contacts, I was liberated in ten minutes. Thank you, Dr. Schneider."

"Fifteen years ago I was a three time Pro-Bowler. If I would have had this procedure sooner, I might have been to the Pro Bowl ten times. Thanks to my good friend Dr. Schneider, I can now see life in a different way."
"I have been extremely happy with the results of my procedure. I would recommend you and your office without hesitation."
--Steven Southwood, D.M.D
"I am still amazed every day! Thank you for your work on my vision."
--Thomas Lekan, M.D.
"As a fellow physician, I must say I am very impressed with you and your staff. There is no one else I would allow to perform refractive surgery on me. You results and your experience are truly amazing."
--Gary Stewart, M.D.
"As a nurse, I did a lot of research before selecting a surgeon for my refractive procedure. I was most impressed by the techniques and technology used by Dr. Schneider and his staff at the MidWest EyeCenter."
--Susan DaTillo, R.N.
"I don’t think I’ve quit smiling since my LASIK procedure. The results are better than I ever imagined. I see better now than I ever could with my glasses and contacts. The procedure and recovery were quick and painless."
"Why would someone travel over 1800 miles to have their refractive procedure performed by Dr. David Schneider and the MidWest EyeCenter? The answer is TRUST."
"The technology of the Laser Center was impressive, but I was most impressed by you and your staff, who made me feel at ease. The actual LASIK procedure was quick, painless and very successful."
"I just got back from the Virgin Islands and South Beach. So I was standing on the balcony of the Fountainbleau Hotel looking down at the pool and South Beach and thought, damn, I'm glad I got my eyes fixed!"
--Doug Nieheisel aka Dr. Micro
"I recently heard one of your radio ads. I instantly thought how wrong you were. Your ad stated that everyone that first comes into your office has some apprehension about having laser surgery. I feel compelled to respond. I recall when I had my first laser surgery. It was RK. I went to one of your competitors and left them feeling quite leery. On the way home, one of your ads for RK came on the air. I thought , I may know him (David Schneider). I just did not realize that was the kind of doctoring that you did. When I entered your office for the initial consultation, I KNEW I was going to have the surgery and everything would turn out right. THERE WAS ABSOLUTELY NO FEAR WHATSOEVER!!! Before my RK, I used to stand at the end of each aisle in the grocery store and squint to see what the sign read to know where to go to get what I was shopping for. Since then, I now stand at the front door and read all the signs without squinting. It's been about fifteen years since my RK. I am now 60 years of age and I found myself in need of a tune up. There was no hesitation to my decision to return to DOCTOR SCHNEIDER to have the procedure done. My eyes are very precious to me. I would not even consider anyone else to trust with my vision. I made an offer to you to do a commercial for you. Should you want this to happen, consider it done. Perhaps it might even dispel some of the miths about sports officials. Ask anyone who knows me. I always make the right call. Dr. David Schneider is always the right call."
"Just a short note to offer my thanks and my commendation for the hospitable and professional treatment given to me during my surgery procedure. From the reception persons to the technician to the surgeon and all in between, everyone did such a great job and helped me through a time of some trepidation. The care and concern shown by everyone was quite evident. I also want to thank you, Doctor, for your extra effort on my part and the guidance and counsel you provided to me. I truly appreciate the thoughtfulness and kindness shown to me. God Bless you and good luck to all of you."
--Judge Patrick T. Dinkelacker
"Thank you for giving me my eyes back. Forty years is a long time to be blind. I appreciate what you have done for me and expect to send you my son for LASIK correction of the bad genes I gave him."
"Thank you so very much for taking such great care of our daughter, Cassi. We were so worried that the results wouldn't be favorable and that our precious time would be wasted by the time we found an appointment. We are very appreciative of you volunteering to meet us and examine her after business hours. There are few-if any-that would do that for someone, just because." If ever we can repay your kindness-please don't hesitate to call. We are so grateful for your time, expertise and empathy, as you related to our situation not only as a DOCTOR, but as a PARENT."
--Chris & Patty Lorman
"The purpose of this letter is to express my gratitude to you and your staff for the kind of care which you gave my mother at the time of her eye surgery. I'm an old dog and I've been everywhere but I have never witnessed more concerned conscientious, competent care anywhere. I am simply amazed. I realize that it is difficult to work with older people because they are often confused, suspicious, and crotchety. However you and your people understand all this in a remarkably sensitive manner. I suspect that the thing which most impresses me is the fact that all of you minister medically, emotionally and spiritually to the whole person. You realize in a manner that few others do, that it is neccessary to treat the psyche as it is to treat the physical being. Please convey my gratitude to your staff. I have never seen more gracious people."
