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

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!

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 🙂

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!

I had a good experience with one exception. I have always gone to Dr. Tharpe. I accepted an appointment with Dr. Betz because I could get in much sooner. She was professional in all ways and I will go back to her. My concern is I wish I had been told that she was an optomotrist and not an opthamologist. The lady at the desk explained the difference to me and I realize I should not be taking up an opthamologists time as I have no problems at the time. I have gone to an opthamologist since I was a young girl and that is many, many years ago. Thank you.

Today is eight months from my last review, and I continue to post FIVE STARS! I had a small hair coming out of the liner of my upper left lid, which I've since learned is very common! It was quite irritating. THE VISION CARE CENTER worked me in TODAY, and I met DR. MORGAN BETZ for the first time! She was EXTREMELY THOROUGH, KNOWLEDGEABLE, PROFESSIONAL, PERSONABLE, and QUICK! She is my new eye doctor as my former one is retiring! THANK YOU, DR. BETZ and VISION CARE CENTER for helping the rest of us as if we were family! (PS - I was helped by RENEE, again, who continues do be thorough and comforting, too!)From the check-in desk to checking out, KUDOS to The Vision Care Center! I arrived a little early, got in quickly, and had a very thorough annual eye exam! I really appreciated the thoroughness of the lady who did my initial screening in the exam room, RENEE! RENEE was POLITE, PERSONABLE, and VERY PROFESSIONAL! She updated my medical history and made sure all my information was accurate! THANK YOU, RENEE, for not just doing your job but for doing is so very well! RENEE is a KEEPER! =)

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.
