Vision problems can develop so gradually that we may not realize the problem until it is quite bad. I had a cataract develop rapidly (9 months) in my right eye. I could look up at a star filled sky, cover my good eye and see only one or two of the brightest stars. Dr. Tate removed the cataract and my vision cleared up immediately. I only missed one day of work and could not be happier with the results.
My experience at NVEC was extremely positive. Like most patients, I was nervous and apprehensive about having cataract surgery. Afterall, it was my eyes! However, upon arriving at the facility, I noticed how beautiful, clean and state-of-the-art it was. I was greeted by friendly and caring personnel who directed me to their technicians who guided me gently through all the various tests. I then saw Dr. Ttae who has a wonderful bedside manner. He explained what he was going to do, and even drew diagrams to help me understand my surgery. Their nurse anesthetist was very comforting explaining step by step what to expect. The day of surgery went exactly as planned. In the pre-op area, Dr. Tate came in to see me and said "we're going to take good care of you and you're going to love the results." Well, Dr. Tate was absolutely right! He took wonderful care of me, and I LOVE the results. I could not be happier! I highly recommend NVEC to anyone needing cataract surgery.
Dr. Tate was wonderful! The entire staff were kind, and considerate. They made me comfortable and relaxed.
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.
From start to finish I can truly say that the service and care I received from Dr. Tate's office was exceptional and pleasant. I would highly recommend cataract surgery to anyone who needs it. The end result is worth it!!!
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.
I see brighter colors, more distinct shapes, can read better, and have wonderful night vision. Thank you Dr. Tate
Anyone who needs cataract surgery and is afraid does not need to be. Visit New Vision Eye Center and you will be very pleased. I know I am. Thank you 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.
I was referred to Dr. Stephen Tate at New Vision. I have to say that it was one of the best decisions that I have had to make. From the very first visit I found them to be very professional, personable and knowledgeable in their individual area of expertise. They made you feel like you were their only patient. The entire experience was amazing.
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.
Dr. Tate put me at ease and made me realize that cataract surgery was going to make my life much easier. I a so grateful that I got the cataracts removed and implant surgery done because it has made a world of difference in my life.
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.
Dr. Tate and his excellent staff are all very professional, yet kind. I made the right decision in choosing them for my cataract surgery. I am completely satisfied with the results.
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!
I was so excited and could not wait to have my cataract surgery. The staff at New Vision Eye Center was so professional and wonderful to me. My surgery was very successful thanks to Dr. Tate and the New Vision Staff.
Cataract surgery made my life brighter! Thank you, Dr. Tate. I was treated in a professional, caring manner from start to finish.
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. Now my wife and my friencs all want their cataract surgery performed right away by Dr. Tate at New Vision Eye Center. Watching how easy it has been for me has eased their fears.
I can now see like I did when I was in my twenties! I only wish I hadn't waited so long to have cataract surgery. Thank you Dr. Tate for giving me back my sight.
The improvement in my vision after the 10 minute procedure was almost instant. That same evening, I was able to read the caption writing on the television! I am thankful I trusted Dr. Tate with returning my eyesight to a clearer and brighter future.
