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 have had such a great experience with Dr. Tharpe and his team. Amanda helped me coordinate my LASIK procedure and follow-ups. They have been great about working with my schedule and are always professional. Best of all, my vision is great! I would highly recommend Vision Care Center if considering LASIK.

Dr. Baker gave me a through exam and was friendly and knowledgeable. Christine at the front desk was especially helpful with an administrational issue and used common sense to resolve it. Overall, the staff was friendly and very professional.

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.
17:20 20 Nov 22
Always the best care from Dr Jon and staff. Feel confident in them taking care of my eyes.

Awesome doctors and staff.

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.

I highly recommend! Dr.Betz was wonderful and good at what she does. Her assistant Victoria was the absolute sweetest and made me feel so comfortably informed, but another nurse was kind of rushing our time.
02:44 09 Aug 22
I always receive the most thorough comprehensive eye exams by Dr Eric Weyer and his staff! Everyone I came in contact with from the eye exams to the optical fittings was very friendly, helpful and professional. Highly recommend this practice to others!

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

I was having issues with flashing lights in my left eye. Everyone I dealt with including the nurse I talked to on the phone, the receptionist, assistant to the doctor and the doctor were all very friendly and amazing. As a nurse myself, I know how important it is how people are treated. I can’t thank them enough for taking such good care of me!
02:20 03 Mar 22
Friendly staff, thorough exam by Dr Green, he even called in Dr. John Weyer for confirmation of his findings.
15:35 19 Feb 22
Dr Eric Weyer is thorough, concerned and professional every time I have an appointment. This visit was no different and his assistant was also extremely thorough. I appreciate Dr Weyer and his high level of expertise and ability to communicate on a personal level.
17:49 04 Feb 22
Dr. Eric Weyer and his staff are truly the best! I walk in for my 8am appointment and was greeted by Christina with a warm friendly smile and was checked in quickly and updated my information with seamless care. Before I was able to sit down Lana called my name to take me to the examining room. Lana's very kind and friendly disposition helped to make me feel relaxed and reassured me by describing each step of what she was doing along the way. Dr. Eric Weyer and his wonderful positive attitude was the icing on the cake. Dr. Eric Weyer takes his time to listen and answer all my questions and even gave examples on the internet to help educate me on my vision. I highly recommend Dr. Eric Weyer and his staff. Excellent customer service, a warm welcoming professional staff, and a positive upbeat friendly doctor who truly cares about his patients. Priceless 🙂

I see Dr. Andrew Tharp. He has always been an excellent eye health provider for my rather unusual eyes. I am completely happy to be his patient. The staff is always professional and they provide very competent services to me. I recommend Dr. Tharp to friends and family without hesitation.

I have been a patient pf this group for many years. My first physician retired and I am currently seeing Dr G Green. I have been and remain very pleased with the care I receive. I am treated with respect and my concerns are heard. My questions are answered and explained if necessary. The nurse and the appointment desk were helpful and pleasant. Professional in behavior. I would recommend the office to anyone looking for eye care.

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!
15:37 09 Jul 21
Very happy with my entire experience with Dr. Tharp and the Vision Care facility. Very professional crew from initial pre-op to the cataract surgery and the next day exam. All went well and looking forward to final exam and new glasses.

I went to the optical shop to purchases new glasses yesterday. Tamara is who took care of me. Back in my working days (I’m a retired operations manger) I would have bragged about hiring an employee as professional, helpful and confident in their skills as Tamara was. I don’t have to go to this shop but I will continue to do so based on my experience there yesterday. Tamara is a first rate employee and this company is lucky to have her as an employee.

I have had nothing but superb service from Dr. Eric Weyer, nurses, and all the staff here. It doesn't matter if I am getting a check up or buying glasses or contacts, they always take great care to be sure I am taken care of with great service. I had to get an RX recently for an eye allergy and they put me on to a discount card that save me BIG $. I wish all providers were as good as they are!
