Dr. Neal Sher has Helped Thousands of Patients Improve Their Eyesight.

Here are just a few examples of what past patients have said about his care and expertise:

“Dr. Sher is an excellent ophthalmologist and his staff is great. He is straightforward and offers good recommendations regarding your eye health and any concerns or issues. I have been going to this practice for several years now. The technician and Dr. Sher are almost always on time. The exam is thorough and I always feel I receive good advice. Dr. Sher is very knowledgeable and I feel very comfortable with his opinions.”

“Dr. Sher and the rest of the staff at Eye Care Associates have been a pleasure to deal with from my initial consultation in early 2005 to now, 7 years later. I can't say enough about how friendly everyone is and the eye doctors (including Dr. Sher) take as much time as necessary to answer every question and I feel that even basic eye exams are more thorough here than elsewhere. I went to Dr. Sher based on his reputation and experience. He is the only Dr. I know of that doesn't operate on both eyes at the same time and at first that was annoying, but I believe that the outcome is better doing the eyes at different times. Certainly with PRK it was the only reasonable approach given that the time to heal is longer (but the results are better) than with LASIK. I'll admit to being nervous when I had the surgery but I am so pleased with the results I can't recommend laser vision correction and Dr. Sher enough.”

“I think he is one of the best eye doctors in this area and his quality of care is fabulous. He is very knowledgeable, professional and responsive. His bedside manner is great and treatment is extremely effective. The staff is also very friendly and helpful.”

“The level of care and attention I got during this process was extraordinary. I was informed of exactly what to expect before, during and after the 2 procedures (1 for each eye). Dr Sher called me himself later in the day after each procedure to see how I was doing and answer any questions. The end result confirms this man's talent better than I possibly can: I had 20/100 vision going in, and I now have 20/15 vision. I'm constantly "showing off" my vision in the car, reading signs & license plates well before anyone else can make them out. I can't overstate how pleased I am with Dr Sher, his staff and his organization.”

“Dr. Sher has been wonderful to work with. I knew I wanted PRK at some point, so I had been working with him as an ophthalmologist for years. He explained the procedure thoroughly, but never pressured me to have it done before I was ready. Now that it's done, I'm thrilled with the results! He explains all the details, answers any and all questions, and is very available for follow-up concerns or questions!”

“I had PRK done to both eyes, with great success. Dr Sher and his staff are very knowledgeable and took great care of me during and after the treatment. I would definitely recommend him.”

“After reviewing LASIK providers on Angie's list, I decided to contact Dr. Sher's office for information. I received a very comprehensive packet and I scheduled the initial exam. All the staff members were very friendly and professional. Following a measure twice, cut once philosophy, I received two exams and then the consultation with Dr. Sher. He noted that since I was over 40, PRK would be better than LASIK and then told me that I really only needed surgery on one eye. When scheduling the surgery, they accommodated my need to get it done before the end of the year so my reimbursement account would cover it. Surgery went well and so did the follow-up exams. I am now free of glasses.”

“I was looking into LASIK surgery and happened upon Dr. Sher's site. Based on his extensive research and clinical background, I met with him to inquire about PRK, a procedure which he helped pioneer many years ago. I decided to pursue this option for corrective surgery, as he was objective in his explanation of the risk vs benefits of PRK vs LASIK. Overall his clinical expertise was outstanding, and I am very satisfied with the results several months post-op.”

“After 30 years or so of wearing glasses and contacts, thanks to Dr. Sher and his team I can finally see. From the initial consultation through the PRK procedure and into the post-operative care the experience was great. There were no surprises regarding the procedure or healing time and everything was explained in depth. I couldn't be happier.”

“I found Dr. Sher to be very approachable and honest. He will tell you if you're not a good candidate, I was one. He took as much time as needed to be sure I was informed and comfortable with the process prior to making my decision to go forward with PRK. At each visit both pre-op and post-op, Dr. Sher took a very keen interest in me, making sure I understood what would take place the day of surgery, what to do after surgery and how the healing process would progress. I highly recommend Dr. Sher.”

“I waited almost a year to write this review so I could be confident in the results of the PRK operation I had done by Dr. Sher. I can say, without a doubt, that my eyesight is now perfect and the procedure is absolutely worth doing. I have always had issues with nearsightedness (was -6 diopter when I had the surgery done) and was very wary of eye surgery as it has always freaked me out a bit, to be honest. What I liked most about Dr. Sher's practice (besides his experience) was that from the first day I met with him to the day of my surgery (and every appointment along the way) I dealt with the same 3 people. They knew my name, we developed a relationship, they performed the surgery together, and I was comfortable the entire time that they were competent and easy to deal with. He customized his after-procedure care to my specific circumstances, always answered my questions in detail, and in general was just great. While the surgery does cost quite a bit compared to Lasik deals you can find, and there are a few days of moderate discomfort afterwards, I wouldn't have traded the experience I had. I would do it again in a heartbeat.”

“I have been a patient of Dr. Sher's for over 35 years and have been totally satisfied with the care received. I have been treated for iritis, cataract surgeries and am now deal with glaucoma.”

“I received PRK surgery from Dr. Sher approximately 2 months ago and couldn't be happier. He was happy to answer any questions I had prior to my procedure and his vast amount of experience put my mind at ease. I couldn't be happier with the results either. Without question it has been life changing and has made working in my current job environment much more safe. I would highly recommend Dr. Sher to anyone considering corrective eyes surgery.”

“After 30 years or so of wearing glasses and contacts, thanks to Dr. Sher and his team I can finally see. From the initial consultation through the PRK procedure and into the post-operative care the experience was great. There were no surprises regarding the procedure or healing time and everything was explained in depth. I couldn't be happier.”

“I had the pleasure of getting surgery done by Dr. Sher. He and his staff were OUTSTANDING, and the outcome has been truly amazing. Dr. Sher and the staff answered each of my questions and went above and beyond to ensure that I felt comfortable before, during and after my surgery. 100% recommended!”

“Dr. Sher is the best! He is extremely knowledgeable and professional. My husband and I feel very fortunate to have him as our eye doctor.”

“Dr. Sher takes his time and does an excellent eye exam. The last eye clinic that I went to didn't take nearly the amount of time examining my eyes that Dr. Sher did and he patiently answers any questions that you have. I would highly recommend him to my friends and family. His office is so welcoming--it even has a fireplace!”

“After seeing Dr. Sher for my PRK procedure which he recommended as a better and safer alternative than LASIK, I now have gone from 20/100 vision to 20/15. I can't say enough about how pleased I am with him and his staff and everyone at Eye Care Associates. He even called me himself to follow up and see how I was doing. What a great level of care and attention! I would highly recommend him.”

“He is an excellent caring physician and one of the top specialists in his field. He called me the night of surgery to check on me. Great staff. Does all the postoperative visits himself.”
