Thank you to all staff for their professionalism and wonderful people skills. Dr. O'Brien had done stellar work for years, even coming in on a Sunday when I was klutzy enough to walk into a pipe! He was also quick to see me and diagnose a recent macular hole problem. Then, he referred me to another doctor in the practice, Dr. Reinauer, who calmly explained the procedure and repaired it speedily.
For all they have done to keep my husband and me seeing our best, many, many thanks!
I have been a patient of this ophthalmology group for a couple of years. I developed a problem this weekend and was able to request an appointment on their website, even though they were closed (a very easy system without having to log into a portal or any other nonsense.) The staff got me right in to see my doctor. The office was busy but they were right on schedule. This place runs like a finely tuned clock. The entire staff is professional and competent: the staff at the front desk (who do about a dozen things all at once while maintaining good humor), medical assistants (Brooke who saw me today), and the doctors (especially Dr. O'Brien, intelligent, kind, patient, down to earth, takes time to answer questions, and takes very good care of me. He is a very cool doctor.) Less than 24 hours after my initial online request, I was seen and on meds. Unbelievably, 9 hours later, my eyes are feeling better. I am so grateful I found this practice and such a caring doctor. Thank you, Dr. O'Brien and the entire staff. I truly appreciate the entire staff. Stay safe and keep doing what you do best - helping me and all of your patients have healthy eyes.
Dr. O'Brien and the team at New Vision made sure that I was comfortable and had a complete understanding of my LASIK procedure through the entire process, from my initial pre-op evaluation to my post-ops. My vision went from 20/20 with glasses to 20/15, and I'm able to see things I was never able to see before, even with glasses! I cannot say enough good things about New Vision Eye Center and Dr. O'Brien. I would highly recommend them to anyone interested in LASIK.
I initially went to New Vison Eye Center to consult with Dr. O'Brien about LASIK surgery. My vision was so poor that he said I was a better candidate for a procedure that his colleague, Dr. Tate, could perform instead. I went from trepidation to optimism after meeting with Dr. Tate. He performed a Clear Lens Exchange - basically, cataract surgery with a new lens implant. Who would have known that after two very short, seamless procedures that I would go from legally blind to being able to see clearly without glasses for the first time in my life. My experience was life changing and I am forever grateful to the New Vision Eye Center team.
For years I felt that my droopy lids were interfering with my eyesight, especially my peripheral vision. I also looked tired all of the time. When Dr. O'Brien suggested that I might be a candidate for eyelid surgery, I was completely on board. Swelling, bruising, and downtime were minimal and recovery was easier than I expected. I am so happy that I had this done. My sight has improved, everything seems brighter, and I look and feel 10 years younger.
I had laser vision correction with Dr. O'Brien and it has made the game so much easier, not having to rely on glasses and contacts to see the green. The entire process was so simple, I only wish I had done it sooner. Thank you for restoring my vision!
