    When you shake Dr. Chayet's hand, you know everything is going to be ok.

    A gifted and globally recognized surgeon, his clinic is a testament to what caring and cutting edge medicine can be.

    I went for cataract surgery from Washington DC because I wanted the best and also to have access to superior lenses long available in Europe and England but still not available in the USA. I mean, I'm going to be needing these bad boys for life!

    Surgery was short and painless. I'm now 12 hours out. No pain or irritation, no redness, no nothing, and my vision is already excellent.

    I recommend Dr. Chayet without reservation and I'm a tough and cautious customer when it comes to medical care.

    Had a great experience here from start to finish and I would definitely recommend coming here. The customer service is on point from phone, to valet, to reception, to the doctor. You can instantly tell this doctor is great by all the recognition, awards and diplomas. You can see people traveling from all over the world sitting in the lobby just to see Dr.Chayet. He speak both English and Spanish fluently which caters to people coming the the US.

    Actual surgery: I was extremely nervous about this surgery but the team made me feel very comfortable and at ease. I think I made it a bigger deal than it really was, the most you feel is pressure in your eyes during surgery . ZERO PAIN during/ after the surgery. The only thing I can say is that I felt light burning sensation when the anesthesia wore of but it was minimal like getting soap in your eyes, nothing unbearable.

    I loved that CODET dont charge you for the eye exam, only for the glases unlike here in Escondido. I loved that they are so close to the boarder. Very clean place. And they have the nicest staff. I would recomend!

    Incredible professionalism and service. After 15 years of struggling with issues, the team of physicians at CODET created a care plan that has me feeling better than ever. I hadn't been to Tijuana in 18 years but I am so glad I did. They offer a medical pass for when I drive myself to and from appointments but also have a driver that will pick me up and bring me back. They are amazing and I will continue to work with them for all my vision needs.
