Patient Testimonials for Panhandle Vision Institute

At Panhandle Vision Institute, we strive to do everything we can to improve your vision and we’d like to think we do a pretty good job at it. Don’t take our word for it though – see what our patients, as well as other eye care professionals have to say about Dr. Concool.

“Having been an eye doctor for over 20 years, I didn’t want to compromise when I decided to have LASIK. Dr. Concool and the quality of his work were outstanding and the bladeless technology is amazing. I’m still loving my 20/20 vision.”

Carl Spear


“Dr. Concool and his entire staff were amazing throughout the entire LASIK process, from the initial consultation through the surgery and with the followups. It’s been just over two weeks now, and I’m thrilled with the outcome. As Dr. Concool said, getting LASIK is like buying a car: do you want a Kia, or a Mercedes? When it comes to your vision, DO NOT cheap out. The service, professionalism, and care you will get from all the staff at Panhandle Laser Vision Institute is well worth the cost. Thanks for giving me my vision back! Much love to you all!”

“Love Dr. Concool and his staff. Went back today because I’m having so many problems with a different Dr. that did my other eye. Dr. Concool found the problem and is sending me to Retina Specialty. Dr. Concool is the best.”

“Dr. Concool and the staff members @ Panhandle Vision Institute are by far the most professional and caring group of individuals I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. After having cataract surgery in one eye, I am very anxious to have the second eye done. A truly gifted and caring surgeon, along with his wonderful team of support has been a blessing to me. Thank you, all of you! ”

“My whole life was spent either in contacts or in in glasses. I hated my glasses because I felt there was a barrier between me and the person I was talking too. And I NEVER took care of my contacts the way I should’ve. I am so very thankful of Dr. Concool and his staff. They took great care of me and I can see. It is definitely one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!”

Tommy L Neel

“Amazing! That’s the only word to describe Dr. Concool’s laser cataract surgery. Quick, painless and the results are nothing short of astounding. I was told about a year ago that “eventually” I would need cataract surgery and by the time I had moved to Gulf Breeze 6 months ago I was shocked how quickly my eyes had deteriorated. My left eye was so bad, if I closed my right eye it was like looking through waxed paper. Once my left eye was fixed, I could tell then my “good” right eye was also much worse than I had suspected. Now that they’re both fixed, I am ecstatic with the result. The side benefit of laser cataract surgery is that I now no longer need to wear glasses and my vision is 20/20 … and crystal clear! If you need cataract surgery, laser surgery is the only way to go.”

“Fabulous staff, very minimal wait time, very knowledgable and experienced Doctor, cutting edge technology, clean, welcoming office. I felt like I was in very good hands and I look forward to scheduling my LASIK surgery with Dr.Concool.”

Sara K.

“I had a consult an entire year before I went back to have my lasik surgery. They were great during my procedure, answering any and all questions. I just had my year follow up appointment and I’m a little sad I won’t see them as much but I definitely appreciate how cordial and professional they were throughout the whole process. I have no regrets picking this facility for my surgery and driving an hour back and forth for each appointment. Worth it!! Thanks Dr. Concool and your amazing staff!”

“I have been very impressed with both Panhandle Vision Institute personal and the Doctors. I think Dr. Barry Concool to be the best eye doctor I have ever been to. When my eye was injured I was very worried I was going to lose my eye site. Dr. Concool save my eye site I can’t say enough to thank him. I can recommend him to anyone with a 5* plus rating.”
