[10/23/20]   "Dr. van Westenbrugge,
I just wanted to send you a note to express my gratitude for the manner in which you have helped me over many years. It of course began with the Lasik surgery which was an absolute gift from God (through the hands of a master)! Within a day or so, I could see clearly and had better than 20/20 vision and maintain that vision today many years later.
And more recently, you have helped me understand a number of matters relating to my eyes.
The excellence with which you perform your calling coupled with your humble, kind and always helpful manner, deserve high praise. Again, thank you.
John M."

[02/01/20]   "I had my Lasik surgery in July of 2017 and it was one of the best decisions of my life! Contacts used to feel like glass in my eyes and glasses gave me headaches. I was desperate to find a solution. I am still to this day, so thankful that I went to Gimbel Eye Centre for my Lasik. The entire staff was so kind, considerate, comforting and knowledgeable. Dr. John van Westenbrugge made sure to explain everything clearly during my surgery so I knew what to expect at every moment. I ended up going to Calgary just to go to Gimbel Eye Centre because of the high level of praise my eye doctor gave them. He was right! I tell everyone I know who is considering Lasik to go to Gimbel Eye Center. 2.5 years later and my eyes feel amazing! They're still super sharp and I don't have any issues with pain or dryness. Thank you Gimbel Eye Centre team!" Sonesta J.

Gimbel Eye Centre

Experiencing distorted or a progressive loss of vision and seeing glares or cloudy areas of the pupil may be a sign of cataracts. We provide state-of-the art cataract surgery to achieve clearer vision and refractive lens exchange to lessen dependency on glasses.

This wonderful news just in from Dr. Gimbel: "I am so thankful for your prayers regarding my health. God is answering those prayers. Since my diagnosis in June 2018, there has been no change in repeated MRIs, the clinical findings, or in my symptoms. So with those positive reports my surgery has not been done and probably never will be done. So we continue to praise God and thank Him."

“When I perform cataract surgery, my patients are able to regain vision which has been lost” says Dr. Van Westenbrugge, but refractive surgery brings other rewards. When I perform refractive surgery, I am often able to give patients something they have never had before. Watching them regain and enjoy clear vision provides great professional and personal satisfaction for me”.


[12/12/19]   "Thank you kindly for all of the effort that you have put into helping me. I guess I should expect no less from folks have always gone above and beyond.

Thanks again,

[12/09/19]   "Today at 86 years old, I underwent a corrective laser treatment performed by Dr. Helen Chung. The purpose of this brief note is simply to express my extreme gratitude for the results I have obtained having lived with this vexing problem for a long time. Thanks to her skills, dedication and abilities I have recovered excellent vision in my eye in less that 12 hours. To me this is an utterly amazing thing! I also greatly appreciate the opportunity to be exposed to some of the latest Zeiss equipment used by Ms. Chung at the Gimbel Eye Centre. I am so proud of you Helen! You are performing great things for humanity which is something all your hard work and dedication over the years has paid off for you not in dollars and cents, but in the knowledge that you are very good at what you do.
