"The service here is commendable. I feel very comfortable when I’m here, and there’s progress with my vision. Always good results. Nothing needs to be improved here."

Veronica

"Well worth the 3-hr drive I made to get to my first appt. I told Dr. Safi I will follow him anywhere. He’s the best. I trust him; he’s an Army doctor, and they see worse things up at Tripler because of the military exposure. And he’s always in a good mood; helps put you at ease. I recommend you guys to everyone."

👁️✨ Experiencing tiny specks or cobwebs drifting through your vision? Or maybe occasional flashes of light? These are known as eye floaters and flashers, and theyre more common than you might think!
Floaters are usually caused by age-related changes that occur as the jelly-like substance (vitreous) inside your eyes becomes more liquid.
Flashes can look like flashing lights or lightning streaks in your field of vision. They happen when the vitreous gel pulls on or rubs against the retina.
While floaters and flashers are typically harmless, a sudden increase in these could indicate more serious issues like retinal detachment. If you notice a change in the number or type of spots or flashes, its important to call us immediately.

Bennett Eye Institute has been transformed into Eye Center of Hawai’i.

In 1998, Dr. Michael Bennett laid the foundation for our journey, leading us to become the largest retinal practice in Hawai’i and one of the nation’s leaders in research. However, as the landscape evolved, we recognized the need to differentiate ourselves, leading to our transition to Bennett Eye Institute. Now, as Eye Center of Hawai’i, we come full circle, reflecting our dedication to delivering exceptional care with expanded services.
