Patient Ralph Carter talks about his experience having surgery with Dr. Robert Reinauer with New Vision Eye Center in Vero Beach, FL

Ralph Carter

This patient discusses his treatment at New Vision Eye Center in Vero Beach with Dr. Robert Reinauer, fellowship trained retina surgeon.

Paul Crisanti

Floaters in the vision can be troublesome. Not all need to be treated but when they do, visit fellowship trained retina surgeon Dr. Robert M. Reinauer at New Vision Eye Center in Vero Beach, FL

David Fleetwood

I had large floaters in both eyes for several years. They caused significant blurred vision. Dr. Reinauer performed surgery in both eyes to remove the floaters. The procedure was painless and he successfully removed all traces of any floaters in both eyes. My vision is clear and the best it has been in years. The only discomfort in the entire procedure is wearing a patch or cover over the eye the first night of surgery but it did not cause pain, just a little discomfort. My only regret is that I waited so long to have Dr. Reinauer perform the surgery. It is amazing how beautiful everything is when you can see clearly. Thank you for everything you and the rest of the New Vision team have done over the years.

Fred Schwecke

I am so grateful to have found Dr. Reinauer. I was diagnosed with a 2nd macular hole in my left eye. I went through a terrible experience 4 years ago for the first macular hole at a very well known eye hospital in Miami. I was instructed to lie face down 24/7 for a week after surgery. I was very hesitant to have the surgery again. Dr. Reinauer assured me that he could perform the surgery to close the hole and I would spend 1 afternoon face down. We me several times and each time my confidence was built. He encouraged questions and never rushed me to make a choice. Not only did he close the hole, he performed cataract surgery and removed my floaters all in 1 procedure. My vision is better than ever! I feel very lucky to have found Dr. Reinauer and New Vision Eye Center.

Suzanne Broyles

Dr. Minotty referred me to Dr. Reinauer for a consultation. Dr. Reinauer was patient, very kind, informative, and encouraging when explaining the vitrectomy procedure to treat my floaters. My thanks to Dr. Reinauer and his excellent team! I now have clear vision and healthy eyes. Thank you Dr. Reinauer!

Cheryl Porter

Thanks to Dr. Reinauer and the vitrectomy procedure,I can now see without floaters. No more ghosting images, shadows or blurring images. Also, I can now read without my glasses. A big thank you sir!

David Davis

I have been living with floaters for over 10 years and Dr. Reinauer removed them from both my eyes. Now my vision is much clearer, colors more vibrant, and my night vision has significantly improved.

Lewis Jacobson

For some time I had a serious "floater" in my right eye which affected my vision. Several doctors had told me I should live with it or consider having it "broken up" by laser. I read an article profiling Dr. Robert Reinauer, who specializes in in a unique procedure which removes severe floaters and I called right away. I had the small incision surgery, which was painless and immediately the "floater" was gone. It made a huge difference. I can now see out of that eye better than I had in years. I am so grateful and would recommend Dr. Reinauer to anyone.

Graydon Seitz

Let me tell you, if you have a blip (floater) in your field of vision and it doesn't disappear as some do, go to NVEC and ask for Dr. Reinauer. My "floater" was center vision and never moved and right after a thorough exam I was scheduled for a procedure to remove this annoyance. The procedure was easy (for me) with no pain. Dr. Reinauer removed the floater and my eyesight is perfect again. If you have a problem like mine, don't hesitate to see Dr. Reinauer at New Vision Eye Center.

Roger E. Dion

I was told by other eye physicians that there was nothing that could be done about my eye floaters and that I would have to live with them. I did some internet searching and found NVEC and Dr. Reinauer. Dr. Reinauer did a surgery called Vitrectomy. I had absolutely no pain or discomfort from the surgery and 24 hours later, when they removed the patch from my eye, all of the floater were gone. The staff at the front desk are very friendly and efficient. Dr. Reinauer and his staff are amazing. I would recommend NVEC and Dr. Reinauer to anyone who need any kind of eye care.

Darrell Mayo

I had floaters in both of my eyes for years until Dr. Reinauer was able to perform a procedure to remove those floaters. It was a dream come true to have my eyesight restored and to have my vision returned to normal again.

Normand Plebranc

I spoke to Dr. Reinauer about the floaters in my eyes. I had no idea he could remove them. What a difference the surgery made. Dr. Reinauer is one of the most compassionate, caring doctors you can meet. He explains every detail of your problem and puts you at ease immediately. He truly cares.

Joan Daven

My vision is now better than it has been in years and I believe I owe that to Dr. Reinauer and his amazing staff. Dr. Reinauer continued to show that same caring concern at every follow up visit I had. I highly recommend him- God Bless Dr. Reinauer.

On the afternoon of 9/5/17 I suddenly went blind in my right eye. I was diagnosed with a detached retina and sent to New Vision where I first met Dr. Reinauer, a retina specialist. I was taken in without an appointment or being their patient. I was scheduled for surgery the very next morning. Post op instructions were made very specific, and the entire staff was caring and supportive. On 11/19/17 I had my full sight back. Amazing! I say thank you to Dr. Reinauer and the entire staff at New Vision Eye Center.

Robert C. De Mello

I developed a problem with floaters, which were driving me crazy. Not sure anything could be done to correct them, I made an appointment with Dr. Reinauer. After a complete exam, he said he could help. Still skeptical, I agreed to the procedure and the floaters are gone! Dr. Reinauer was understanding, compassionate, and highly skilled. I recommend him to anyone suffering as I was.

Joseph Chiarella

I had large floaters in my right eye which caused me major issues when trying to read. I thought I would have to live with them, but Dr. O'Brien told me they could be removed, and referred me to Dr. Reinauer who addressed my concerns and put me at ease about the surgery. His staff in both the office and surgery center were kind and patient with me. I'm ecstatic about the results and I'm very grateful to have met this warm, compassionate, and caring doctor.

Many doctors are blessed with excellent medical skills. Not all doctors have the medical skills coupled with the people skills. Dr. Robert Reinauer has the combination. His surgical skills as a retina specialist are amazing, but he also gives his patients undivided attention, invites questions, and makes patients feel special. I highly recommend Dr. Reinauer for surgeries involving the vitreous humor or retina.

As a physician, I did not take vitrectomy surgery lightly since excellent vision is critical to my work. Dr. Reinauer was outstanding in his performance of the procedure which was painless and without complication, resulting in clear floater free vision... Dr. Reinauer's support colleagues and staff were efficient, kind and courteous. I can highly recommend Dr. Reinauer to anyone considering vitrectomy surgery.

Dr. Robert Taylor
Dr. Robert Taylor

After reading an article about a procedure called vitrectomy, I went to see Dr. Reinauer to answer my many questions. He convinced me that my decision to have the surgery on both eyes would be the correct one. I signed up for the procedure. As far as my eyes are concerned, this was the best decision I have made in a long time. The floaters have completely disappeared. I will have my eyes tested for new glasses and I will be a new man!

John Lowe

When my eye doctor told me about Dr. Reinauer's procedure to remove floaters, I immediately called for a consultation. After speaking with him I decided to have the surgery. I am very happy with the results. My eye sight is clearer and brighter. Colors are more vibrant. I am one happy patient and highly recommend Dr. Reinauer.

Pat N.

Having the floaters removed from both eyes by Dr. Reinauer was the most fantastic surprise this year! What an amazing difference in the clarity of vision. Dr. Reinauer and his staff were very nice-making me feel calm confident in the procedure. I would do it again!

Barbara W.

A vitrectomy sounds scary-Dr. Reinauer makes it easy. I'd lived with a grey area in my vision for months and it is great to have it gone. Dr. Reinauer and his staff are professional, courteous, and friendly. The procedure was a snap, Dr. Reinauer guided me through aftercare with no problem.

Robert M.

For over 50 years I have been bothered by floaters in my left eye, but have always been told that there was nothing that could be done about them. I made an appointment with Dr. Reinauer who performed a vitrectomy on both of my eyes. I feel like my life has changed since these procedures... I can now see clearly, and have no more "spots" before my eyes. Dr. Reinauer and his staff are caring and professional. I couldn't be more pleased with my care. Vero Beach is very fortunate to have such a skilled professional!

Vi Burkhard

I am so grateful for Dr. Reinauer and the staff of New Vision. Dr. Reinauer is so skilled and kind and takes all the time I need to explain what is to take place, answering all of my questions. When I had a detached retina, I got in to see the doctor right away and the surgery went very smoothly. The follow-up appointments have all gone well too. I never have to wait and the nurses are so efficient and caring. Thank you Dr. Reinauer for saving my vision!

Lynnea Porter

My eye floaters are a thing of the past. Dr. Reinauer's assurance that they could be removed was performed with complete success and minimal discomfort. Him and his staff were very efficient, courteous and professional. I highly recommend this procedure if you have any discomfort from eye floaters.

David P.

We are so lucky to have Dr. Reinauer working in Vero Beach. There aren't many ophthalmologists trained to remove floaters. We are also lucky to have New Vision Eye Center, where patients are treated kindly and with respect. Dr. Reinauer patiently explained every step of the procedure, and the removal of my floater went smoothly and with no surprises. I am so glad I found Dr. Reinauer!

Linda K.

Dr. Reinauer's expert and prompt treatment of my detached retina probably saved my eye sight in my left eye. His superior and professional care during the first few days of my recovery was exemplified by him seeing me on a Saturday morning even though the office was closed. I would highly recommend Dr. Reinauer to anyone needing treatment of retina related eye problems.

John Styron, Jr.

I was so nervous thinking of anyone messing with my eyes, but Dr. Reinauer and his staff made the whole experience worth while. It was a piece of cake, so for anyone considering this procedure, please trust that Dr. Reinauer and his staff will answer any and all questions you may have and make you very comfortable.

Shelly C.

No floaters! Wow! I had been dealing with severe floaters for about twenty years, and every ophthalmologist I saw told me there was nothing to do for them. I heard Dr. Reinauer was doing wonderful things with floater removal, so I contacted him and it was the best decision I ever made. There was no pain or discomfort during or after the procedure. I am floater free and have a ‘new look' on life!

Don Marti

My current optometrist recommended I consult with Dr. Reinauer about my floaters. He instilled hope and faith that he could remove the floaters. I continue to be amazed and thankful for the unbelievable results.

Gene Gresham

For years I was told by physicians here and in New Jersey that there wasn't anything that could correct the floaters and large clouds across my vision, that it was just part of the aging process. Then I met with Dr. Robert Reinauer. He performed a vitrectomy on both of my eyes. All I can say is that I want to tap dance with joy at the results of this procedure. I didn't realize how badly my vision was impaired. God bless you Dr. Reinauer.

I have nothing but positive words to say about my experience with New Vision Eye Center. Dr. Reinauer's professionalism and talent is beyond compare. I had a painless procedure one day and the next day I no longer experience the floaters that were bothersome for years. I literally have a new outlook on life.

I was nervous to have surgery until Dr. Reinauer explained everything to me in depth, quelling my fears. The technicians, nurses, and staff were all very courteous and professional.

Gregory Yuill

I accompanied my wife on her appointment with Dr. Reinauer and took the opportunity to ask him if he could do anything about the floaters in my vision. His answer was yes! Dr. Reinauer examined me and told me that my floaters were among the worst he had ever seen. The care and concern during pre-op really put me at ease. The procedure did not take very long and I experienced no pain at all. Now, I no longer have floaters, and actually have clear vision for the first time in a long time! My vision in that eye is now 20/20. I would recommend Dr. Reinauer to any and all who have this condition.

David Fleetwood

I am so happy with my new eyesight! I had large floaters that completely interfered with my vision. I was having such a difficult time. Dr. Reinauer assured me that he could remove the floaters and I felt confident in his abilities. The whole staff made me feel comfortable and I had absolutely no fear as I went into surgery. The day after the procedure, my sight was as clear as could be. Today, I have 20/20 vision. The whole experience was a joy!

I have been a patient for over two years and have had various procedures. All of the doctors and staff are great. Recently, I was referred to Dr. Reinauer for floaters in my vision. He was very sympathetic to my issues and answered all of my questions. He assured me he could correct my visual problems. On the day of surgery, the staff was very kind and patient which put me at complete ease. I am extremely grateful to Dr. Reinauer and his staff. My only wish is that I had come to see him sooner. The entire staff is the best in the world.

I first met Dr. Reinauer on a Friday afternoon and to my surprise I had a detached retina. Dr. Reinauer was such a blessing, working until late into the evening to save my sight. My surgery was very successful and the follow up was great. Six months later, this special doctor called me out of the blue to see how I was doing. I have never had a doctor do this - he is a very caring person. I have since had a second surgery to remove the floaters in my vision that I thought nothing could be done about. Thanks to Dr. Reinauer, I am 74 years young and can see perfectly.

After living with floaters, blurry vision, and headaches for many years, a friend referred me to Dr. Reinauer. I was afraid to have surgery but after meeting Dr. Reinauer, I felt confident that he could help me. It was the best decision I have ever made. I now have clear vision and no more headaches.

Linda Highsmith

I want to thank Dr. Reinauer and staff for their caring treatment to correct my visual problems. Your explanations to my questions were thorough and complete. You explained what needed to be done and you did so with superior care and success.

Joseph Visceglia

Before I met Dr. Reinauer, I was told surgery to correct my condition had a low probability of success and that I would have travel far to find a qualified surgeon. Dr. Reinauer changed all of that by surgically correcting my macular pucker. He's a skilled physician and a warm and caring human being. New Vision made the entire process comfortable and convenient.

Bruce Dimock

I required emergency retina surgery to save my vision. I was very nervous but because of Dr. Reinauer's warm personality and professionalism, I was totally relaxed. Not only was the surgery a success but the follow up care was magnificent.in what a patient desires in a physician.

Ralph Gehre

While on vacation, the retina of my left eye became detached. The physician I saw in San Juan PR coordinated with Dr. Reinauer to schedule the surgical correction I would require. Dr. Reinauer opened the office on Saturday to examine me at 7:00 am and was operating on me by 9:00 am. The coordination with the physician in Puerto Rico and Dr. Reinauer was exceptional. World class care of this magnitude is hard to come by, especially these days.

William Schubert

Dr. Reinauer is a highly skilled Retinal Specialist who eliminated the floaters that I was plagued with for many years. My results were nothing short of a miracle. In addition, Dr. Reinauer could write the "how to" book on bedside manner. He is the total package in what a patient desires in a physician.

Diane Isola

Last September my optometrist pronounced I had a detached retina. She said I needed immediate attention and suggested either Bascom Palmer or the surgical Retina Specialist at New Vision Eye Center. I chose the latter and I am so very glad that I did. From the very first meeting, I could tell that Dr. Reinauer was the right choice.

Dr. Reinauer's expertise and professional, excellent "bedside" manner is top notch. What I really like is his dedication to his patients and his thoroughness in taking whatever time necessary to see the patient through the process. Kudos to him and to all the professional staff at New Vision!

For some time, I had floaters in my left eye. They caused difficulty in reading and my eyes tired easily. It was suggested that I could have Dr. Reinauer do surgery to remove those "floaters". I did, and was very pleased with the results! I would recommend this surgery to anyone, and especially recommend Dr. Reinauer to perform it.

Once in a lifetime if we are lucky, we encounter a teacher who is memorable for a lifetime, or a preacher, or a physician. Dr. Reinauer at New Vision Eye Center is that Physician. He is surrounded by an incredible staff and facility, the combination making for something far superior to a first-class health care experience.

Nobody should wish for retinal emergencies, but it certainly is comforting to know that right in Vero Beach, we have not only Dr. Reinauer, but the staff and facility at New Vision Eye Center -- a rare reality and a memory for a lifetime.

Dr. Reinauer performed a Vitrectomy on my left eye. He was very pleasant and thoroughly explained the procedure. Dr. Reinauer spoke to my husband after the surgery and thoroughly explained how the operation went. When you have a question he personally and promptly gets back to you. My surgery was a successful and easy experience.

Marrianne T.

Dr. Reinauer's friendly disposition combined with his excellent medical skills make him the kind of doctor everyone hopes to find. The vitrectomy Dr. Reinauer performed to eliminate my eye floaters and hazy vision went perfectly. Treasure Coast residents are fortunate to have such a gifted surgeon practicing in Vero Beach.

J. Paul

I recently had eye surgery performed by Dr. Robert Reinauer at New Vision Eye Center. I highly recommend him based on the following: He explains every step of the procedure, listens to your concerns, is kind and makes one feel confident and comfortable. I am super pleased with the results of my surgery and very grateful for his expertise and the overall experience while in his care.

Janette G.

Before moving to Vero Beach I had a botched cataract surgery in Ft. Myers, Florida. I heard rave reviews about New Vision Eye Center and made an appointment to see if they could correct my vision. Dr. Reinauer stated that he could use the Yag laser. My vision was finally corrected and the feeling of having a veil over my eye disappeared. I also had a problem with floaters in the same eye and a month later Dr. Reinauer performed retina surgery to remove them. What a relief, I can see perfectly now. Dr. Reinauer is an excellent surgeon. It is rare to have such a personable doctor take the time to explain everything so thoroughly. Dr. Reinauer truly cares about his patients and I highly recommend him.

Daniel Uiterwyk

After being evaluated at another ophthalmology group in Vero Beach and being told by that doctor that he would rather not address my problem, as there was only a 50% chance of success, I opted out of having anything done. Then I read an article on Dr. Reinauer and how he has a treatment for "the cloud in the vision" that I had been experiencing. When I met with him, he made me feel that treating my condition would be a normal procedure for him, not a big deal. He operated on my left eye and from that day forward, my vision was absolutely fixed. No cloud, no blurring. I then had my right eye treated, which had a similar cloud. Again, my vision is as perfect as can be. It's like it was in my twenties, and I'm 74. Dr. Reinauer's attention to detail and his concern for his patient's satisfaction seems to be foremost on his mind. If anyone has a question or concern about the services at New Vision Eye Center and Dr. Reinauer, I would be happy to discuss my experience.

Due to a past detached retina reparative surgery, I wanted the best possible care when I moved down to Vero Beach. I selected New Vision Eye Center. I started with Dr. Minotty and now I see their retina specialist, Dr. Reinauer. Both have taken excellent care of my aged eyes. It's terrific to see everything as sharp and clear as when I was a young lad. I have been extremely impressed by the entire staff at New Vision, always pleasant, always taking their time to listen to my concerns. On top of everything else, they are a great supporter of the Vero Beach Community. Thank you New Vision Eye Center.

I was a little nervous about having eye surgery but Dr. Reinauer and the entire staff at New Vision Eye Center in Vero Beach made me feel so at ease that I knew I made the right choice in doctors.For many years I had floaters in my left eye and very poor vision. Dr. Reinauer and staff were extremely kind, and he explained the corrective procedure clearly and compassionately. I am so pleased, since my surgery in April, my vision is unbelievably good. The service was exceptional; New Vision transported me to and from the surgery and to my follow up appointments. I am so grateful to Dr. Reinauer for restoring my sight.

Patricia Flanigan

My wife and I are very glad to have chosen New Vision for our eye care. The doctors and staff are all top notch. I had a condition in my left eye, vitreomacular traction, that affected my vision. I had been told by other doctors that not much could be done. Dr. Reinauer changed that! He performed surgery and my vision continues to improve!

Terry S.

Dr. Reinauer, I can't thank you enough for my vitrectomy surgery. I was apprehensive when we met, since this was my 80 year old eye and you being as young as you are, but I quickly got over that fear after our first discussion. You made me feel very at ease and comfortable. My surgery was a mere 3 weeks ago and my eyesight has improved so much, it is almost back to normal. I look forward to followups with your office, where everything is first class and professional.

Peter Hammer

I have an overwhelming need to express my gratitude to you for saving my eyesight.
