Dr.Barnett is an amazing doctor! I was considering Lasik for a while and went to 4 different consultations in the Sacramento area. My first day meeting Dr.Barnett I knew that he would be my doctor. He is extremely friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable, personable, and has huge passion for what he does. He deeply cares about his patients success and will work with them hand in hand every step of the way. I had a ton of questions for him and his staff and they answered all of my many questions with great detail, which built my confidence in the procedure even more.I would rate the entire experience an 11/10. I had my Lasik Surgery less than 24 hours ago and I am already seeing much better than 20/20 . The surgery itself was painless and doctor Barnett explained everything as he was doing it. Completely painless and completely worth it!Thank you Dr.Barnett and your staff as well!!

I recently had cataract surgery with Dr. Barnett, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I opted for the laser procedure and monofocal toric lenses to correct astigmatism, first on the left eye and a month later on the right. Now, several weeks past the right eye surgery, I am able to read the 20/15 line with each eye. 20/20 is considered excellent. 20/15 is even better. My intermediate vision is also quite good. I only need glasses for close work, which is common for someone of my age.Dr. Barnett also has me on a program to correct my dry eye problem (meibomian gland dysfunction), and it seems to be working well. My vision has not been this clear and crisp for years.Dr. Barnett is very personable, and it is clear that he is passionate about his work and cares about his patients.

Dr. Barnett has been an incredibly thorough and generous doctor whose excellent care brought my eyesight to 20/20 after my lasik procedure with him. I immediately knew that I wanted Dr. Barnett to be my doctor after my consultation. What stood out to me during that appointment is how he emphasized that once he became my doctor he would consider me his patient from now into the future. His practice, in other words, does not involve one stop procedures but an ongoing relationship between a doctor and his patients. In the month since receiving lasik, I can say that this has been absolutely my experience and I expect it to continue in the months and years ahead. I absolutely recommend him to those considering lasik. Not simply for the important reasons I’ve just outlined, but also because the staff is lovely and Kristen Barnett, Dr. Barnett’s wife, is a cosmetic specialist whose work has left my skin feeling refreshed and young! Kristen, Dr. Barnett, and their staff are a great team who offer excellent services.

This man took incredible care of my husband. After our daughter scratched his eye in a fit about not reading more books, my husband didn't know how to get relief from the pain, with Type 1 diabetes and other autoimmune diseases. Dr. Barnett showed compassion, competence, and committed service to help my husband recover. When one solution didn't work out, he accepted my husband on short notice and went above and beyond to give another solution that is now providing relief. He does not worry about inconvenience. He is a man of definite purpose and is doing what he loves as he knows (and is right in that) it is of value to society. NUMBER #1!!!

Dr. Barnett performed my cataract surgery and lens replacement and I am very pleased with the results! Like most people I was very nervous and apprehensive about having surgery on my eyes but Dr. Barnett and his staff were very good about explaining everything throughout the process and insuring that I was very comfortable at all times. It was an easy and painless procedure.At Dr. Barnett's recommendation I was fitted with Vivity lenses and I'm very happy with the choice. Before I could not drive, watch TV or read at intermediate distance without glasses, but now I can do all those things without.I have now recommend my friends and family consult with Dr. Barnett before considering cataract or Lasik surgery and would highly recommend him.
