I had my evaluation in Jan 2024 and surgery on Feb 2024. The entire process was extremely smooth from scheduling the initial evaluation all the way through to the post-op appointments. The team did a great job explaining everything that would happen and treated me with great care. I was able to schedule everything to fit my schedule. I was given all the information I needed to make an informed decision and I never felt pressured to move forward with the surgery.The surgery itself was very quick and the team too great care to help ease my nerves by explaining what was going to happen and continue to talk me to comfort me throughout the procedure. All on all, it was a great experience!

Dr Tharp is very professional and his work is top notch. I went from 20/50+ in both eyes to 20/15 at the 3 month mark. Effects like dryness and discomfort were short lived and well managed with the prescribed after care. Overall a worthwhile procedure and a great medical staff!

I went to Dr. Baker for my annual appointment, which was great timing because I started with a problem in my left eye. He wasted no time in referring me to Dr. Tharp, and I cannot say enough good things about the treatment I received. I was getting ready to leave on vacation, and Dr. Tharp went above and beyond in doing what he needed to do to get my problem solved. He and his staff were very compassionate and efficient. If you’re looking for excellent eye care, look no further than Vision Care Center. Thank you Drs. Tharp and Baker!

An inside perspective…I’ve worked as an ophthalmic assistant (the “better one or better two gal” who gets you ready for the ophthalmologist) since the early 2000s. I’ve worked under some incredible doctors over the years, joining The Vision Care Center earlier this year.I can say without hesitation, I leave work every single day proud to be part of this team. The doctors and staff are top notch, extending the same kindness and respect outside of the exam rooms.I know it’s unconventional to leave a review as an employee, but hope to offer some insight to future patients in doing so! (Or, future co-workers looking for a place to share your love of eyes!)

I went to this place to get fitted for contact lenses, and while it took two separate appointments, everyone was very supportive and available. They were able to squeeze me in not once but twice in the week before I left work college. Currently wearing my contacts, and everything looks so much clearer.

Everyone at The Vision Care Center @ Gateway are so nice and professional. Dr Jon Weyer removed cataracts from both of my eyes and put in the corrective lenses I no longer need to wear glasses or contacts. This is the best vision I have had in my whole life (65 years) I am overjoyed with my results. Dr Chad Baker and Dr Jon are the best. 5 STARS *****

I am 72 years old and over the last 42 years I have had an outstanding eye doctor or I thought so until meeting a young man by the name of Dr. Green. Very through and truly explains what he is doing and your prognosis good or bad. His whole staff are truly professional as he is. My previous eye care was great and Dr. Green's eye care surpasses the word great at supersonic speed. HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend. If there is better I don't know where you could find it. I would give them 10 stars if it was shown.

Dr Jon Weyer is INCREDIBLE & has saved my sight many times! He’s a professional & I trust him exclusively with my vision.The only reason I take 1 Star away is because of the front desk /phone staff at the 4th St Office(Gateway Front Office Staff is EXCELLENT & could teach the 4th St Customer Service Skills), who are in need of customer Service & professionalism training. They are often curt with patients & do not reflect Dr Jon or rest of professional support staff who are awesome. I was originally referred to Dr Jon for an assessment when a Pituitary Tumor was suffocating my Pituitary Gland in 2019 and the tumor was large, it was pushing up, placing pressure on my Optic Chasm (Optic Nerve). Dr Jon was vital in determining when Neurosurgeon needed to perform surgery to take tumor out. Once surgery occurred in November 2019, Dr Jon followed up & examined my vision regularly & determined that I lost bilateral peripheral vision. However, it could have been so much worse without him. Since then, he has saved my vision several times! I started seeing a strange circle ⭕️ In my line of site & it kept getting bigger over a 2 week period. I had no idea what it was, but I finally called Dr Jon’s office to ask their thoughts. Well, they said I had to come in immediately! Obviously, i didn’t react soon enough! I went the next day & found out that histoplasmosis had attacked my macula! It was bleeding in 2 places, was swollen & already had some scar tissue, though it would be hard to determine how much until healing could occur. Dr Jon recommended that he begin shots to my eye immediately & he said that in future, I was NOT to wait that long to contact his office when anything changed or was suspicious within my sight. After months of monthly shots in my eyeball, & many tests, Dr Jon saved most of my right eye vision! In the end, histoplasmosis only stole the left of center vision of my right eye, where scar tissue remains & it is a bump that is raised along my macula, so I will always have that additional area of lost vision. Just when one would think that a person was dealt enough bad cards- they get more. Due to the tumor surgery to remove it, my pituitary gland became non-functional & that then caused my thyroid gland to also become non-functional. When you don’t have either of those working, you are required to have medications to live & I am on many. One of the required meds is steroids I am on 2 types. I must self-inject one & other is a pill. Steroids keep me alive & able to function, however long-term strong steroid use does significant damage to nearly every part of your body. So far, it has caused almost all the enamel to come off my teeth, caused severe decay, destroyed nearly every tooth, 6 have broken off at the gums (4 were molars), nearly every tooth has severe decay, some are slowly thinning at the gum line & so there are ledges like cliffs have along my gum line - but they are my teeth! I have had my 8 molars extracted & dentist is researching whether my jaw will be able to be stable & strong enough to maintain implants in order for implants to be used for dentures. The fear is that the jawbone start breaking down from the Steroids & then the implants fall out. Ugh. TBD. Then we have my handfuls of hair falling out & breaking off all day, every day. I used to have a lot of hair, healthy & shiny. Now it is hard to know how much longer I may or not have hair left soon. I also have a bone density test in a week because two of my doctors have said it is likely that the steroids have already caused some of my bones to become brittle. I am likely to already have osteoporosis. They stated that I will face with certainty many broken bones in my future. UGH. This brings me to my point of steroid damage- Dr Jon examined my eyes Dec 2021 & documented exam findings. I returned in May 2022 & in that short period- he said I had Cataracts AND Glaucoma! I then required surgery to save my vision. I had 1st surgery 10/10/22 & 2nd is 11/19/22.Eyelid is drooping, so must see Oculoplastics & surgery likely . My card deck sucks.

Great experience with my visit to Dr. Thrap's office yesterday. The receptions were kind and cordial. The intern who examine me explained everything he was going do before he examine my eyes. Great conversation on his future plans.Dr. Tharp was through in his exam. He made me feel at ease as he examine my eyes. He explained everything to me. His welcoming personality makes me want to continue to have him as my family doctor. Thanks

Kayla, who works at both Vision Care Center locations, is really a phenomenal employee. She recently went out of her way to get my scratched glasses fixed prior to my vacation. She ordered new lenses to replace the badly scratched ones on Tuesday and I was able to get them fixed by Friday! She is also always very helpful when selecting an eyeglass frame. She will give you an honest opinion. Please give her a raise, she would be hard to replace!
