"Dr.
is good. Knowledgeable and professional. Office staff were fine, nothing special about their interactions toward patients. Office" decor and atmosphere is old. Optical department (
) is a bit odd in her
and mannerism, hard to explain, somewhat passive-aggressive. I felt overcharged for frame and lens. Hard to compare prices of specific lenses, but for similar bells and whistle treatment from my previous provider on an older pair of glasses, lens seem approx 70% more expensive. Frames were marked up over 200% compared to online vendors. For the high price I paid, I received the brand name case, but appears scuffed as if used or been in the drawer for quite a bit of time; which I had to remind her to give me.

"It went well. I would say the only thing that really bothered us was the the feel of being rushed in the surgery center. Like cattle being herded. I felt like some" of the nurses were so routine in their work they just werent that friendly and seemed super rushed. ALOT of people there and you feel unimportant. Reminds you of "take the money and run"

Ophthalmology

Quite literally meaning "the science of the eyes." ophthalmology studies the way the eye works. Ophthalmologists care for this incredibly complex and delicate part of the body and the factors that affect its health.

Cataract removal is one of the most common surgeries in the U.S., and technology is creating a wider array of choices to consider.

Experts suggest frequent breaks when focusing your attention on a digital screen.  (Photo by Brandon Smith)

A growing number of people are buying prescription glasses online. Some advice — and cautions —if you plan to browse frames and lenses sans the store.

Blurred or lost vision may be signs of a potential eye ailment, but some rare diseases that can cause blindness can only be detected with an examination.

performed cataract surgery on both of my eyes (approximately three weeks apart). He and his staff were very thorough in testing, preparation, communication and follow-up, not to mention the surgeries, themselves. Dr.

Dr.

is the consummate professional. He's very successfully treated cataracts in both of my eyes, as-well-as an on-going glaucoma condition. He's friendly, explains everything about his diagnosis and treatment and is always available for questions.

Initially, the consultation was for resolution of a chronic eye problem. Dr.

determined the issue was beyond normal allergies; she quickly red-flagged a more serious condition that did not show up in regular checkups. Feel confident that you're in good hands with Dr.

Really impressed by how quickly I was able to get an appointment (same day), the professionalism of the service, and the quality of the follow-up. Staff were professional throughout the experience and this was a major relief. It turns out that the other physician had been recommending a treatment plan that was contraindicated for my infection and actually making it worse.

Excellent results.
Chattanooga Ophthalmologists Provider Name Locked
successfully treated a very annoying floater situation in my right eye that my ophthalmologist said was uncurable. The procedure consisted of an initial laser intervention and 2 follow up visits. The floater was blasted apart and no longer blurs my vision. I am a pilot and was very concerned this would be a risky procedure. I am extremely pleased with the results and kick myself for taking several years to get this done.

Procedure went well and corrected my vision. In his follow up Dr
Chattanooga Ophthalmologists Provider Name Locked
failed to diagnose floaters, a condition likely unrelated to the procedure but which should have been flagged and explained to me. It took me another year or two to identify my condition with an ophthalmologist. I would conclude by saying that on one hand he is a very good experienced eye surgeon, on the other hand he has relatively poor communication skills.
