I was scared silly of cataract surgery! After the first eye was done- piece of cake! I could hardly wait to get the other eye cleared up. Dr. Tate is the most pleasant as well as highly skilled professional for his specialty of cataract surgery. The staff as kind as well as highly trained. I would recommend him, without hesitation for anyone needing cataract surgery. I am delighted to thank him for my perfect eye sight-without glasses.

I was apprehensive about my cataract surgery, as I have never had surgery in 64 years. Even though New Vision is over 40 miles from home, I decided to go for it. I was pleasantly surprised at the thoughtfulness of the staff, at their professionalism, and at their care. As for the surgery, I remember asking Dr. Tate when it would be starting...to be told it was done.

My vision has greatly improved following cataract surgery with Dr. Tate. I now only use reading glasses for the small print in the newspaper. I thank New Vision Eye Center for my distance vision.

My cataract surgery with Dr. Tate went very smoothly and I experienced no pain at all. I have been legally blind for my whole life and relied on very thick glasses and contact lenses to help me see. I can now see better than I ever have with glasses. I highly recommend Dr. Tate to anyone considering cataract surgery.

I was examined by Dr. Reinauer and it was deemed I needed immediate cataract surgery or I might lose sight in my right eye. A surgery was performed by Dr. Tate and everything turned out great. New Vision is the best.

I had cataract surgery in May 2016 because I had trouble reading the signs while driving. It was a miracle after the surgery. I could see distance again and read the newspaper without "readers". Dr. Stephen Tate and all the staff did an excellent job of making me feel comfortable and satisfied..

A special thanks to Dr. Tate and his staff. I had cataract surgery and the results are amazing. I appreciate the care given to me. I was very nervous, but the team made me feel very comfortable. If you need surgery and are afraid, you can relax. It's really simple and the results are wonderful.

I have worn glasses since I was about 5 years old, so severely nearsighted that I was blind without them. Then I developed glaucoma, and my eyesight got worse. From there I developed cataracts, and I was really frightened that I would lose what little sight I had. Dr. Tate at New Vision Eye Center said that he couldn't guarantee that I would have better vision, but he would do his best. My vision is now 20/25 in my right eye and my left eye is 20/20. This truly is a miracle! I can see clearly now without glasses or contacts. I am overwhelmed with gratitude and still in shock. Dr. Tate and New Vision Eye Center have given me the ability to see with such clarity and focus without any correction - and I am forever grateful.

I was surprised to hear that cataracts had developed because I thought I saw colors fine and that my vision was ok. Was I ever wrong! I now feel like a new person! I love their professionalism and their patient communication. Thank you so, Dr. Tate.

When I was first told I had a cataract, I had a sense of foreboding. After consulting with Dr. Tate at New Vision Eye Center, I felt better. If I had know how easy it would be, I would not have waited so long to have cataract surgery.

Cataract surgery was so easy and painless. Dr. Tate treated me as if I was his only patient. The most difficult problem is getting used to not having to wear glasses now.

After an easy cataract surgery, my world is no longer dark and blurry. Whites are crisp and colors pop now. Plus, after 65 years, I no longer have to wear glasses. Dr. Tate gave me back clear sight. For that, I will be eternally grateful.

I am a semi-truck driver that works mostly at night. I started having a lot of problems with lights and poor vision. Dr. Tate explained that I had a cataract and astigmatism and that he could easily correct it with surgery. I now have 20/20 vision. It's great to see again!

Dr. Tate showed me a video of the LenSx laser for cataract surgery compared to the traditional blade method. I chose the LenSx laser - it was a no brainer. This was an excellent decision as it was precisely accurate, computer-generated, painless, and quick. The results are outstanding!

Cataract surgery with Dr. Tate was a great experience from start to finish. I just can't believe how easy the whole procedure went! Very quick, no pain, and I played golf the next day.
