I am so thankful that I was referred to Dr. Brass for my cataract surgery. He's kind, compassionate and fully answers all of your questions and concerns. He is a great surgeon and a true hero in my, now cataract free, eye. Can't say enough good things about this wonderful man.

Dr. Brass has been a GREAT MD. He operated on both of my eyes and I had NO pain. He took the time to explain everything to me in great detail so that I knew exactly what to expect. He is a great guy & I would recommend to anyone who needs Cataract Surgery or any other eye issues to see Dr. Brass. He was recommended to me by a friend and I highly recommend him to you. I have never seen as well as I see now.

The office staff were very professional & knowledgeable. Dr. Brass was very sensitive & had a wealth of information on cataract surgery. I felt confident that his skill & ability would create a positive outcome for my surgery & it did! I am an artist & the ability to see the vibrancy of color again is a true gift. Thanks Dr. Brass!

Went to him as a referral from another dr. to have removed tissue from my eye to clear up the blurriness. I waited almost 2 hrs. at the surgery center that the dr. said that the insurance would pay for at 100% at a cost of $225.00. The surgery took about 30 seconds with no success plus my insurance would not pick up the the cost of the surgery center. In summary: almost a 2 hr. wait, about a 30 surgery, $225.00 plus $55.00 dr. fee I had to pay all with No Results.

Went to the dr. to have a piece of tissue removed from my left eye to correct my vision distortion which was unsuccessful. Added to the problem the dr. said the insurance would pay for the surgery center which it did not. It cost me out of pocket $250.00 plus waiting nearly 2 hrs. for an unsuccessful laser procedure that lasted 30 seconds.

Dr Brass is outstanding and his staff is exceptional. I had cataracts in both eyes and had the panoptic mutifocal implants surgery, I now have 20/20 in both eyes which havent had since 10years old, vision is clear and sharp colors vibrant again, looking at the moon is crisp, lights such as Christmas tree light signal lights head lights are a little blurry with 3 circles around them. Before they were blurry and blinding, my night vision is better and night driving is better can see past the cars and not blinded by headlights any longer. I can do needle work again and computer work is crisp and clearer then before surg.Dr Brass explains everything step by step and personally called me at home to check on me after each surgery. He is extremely knowledgeable along with his staff. He is state of the art in all procedures however gives that old fashioned dr care. Knows your name and your family members. I never feel rushed with him-or his staff. My wife is switching to be under his care too.

For 53 years, I have worn glasses for distance. Dr. Brass did cataract surgery on both my eyes and now I have 20/20 vision. His God-given surgical skills and abilities have made this all possible. For twenty years, Dr. Brass worked diligently to provide excellent patient care for my mother, for me, and for my family. I highly recommend Dr. Brass.

I had cataract surgery in both eyes, 2 weeks apart, in Feb. 2020. No pain from beginning to end of procedure. Everything was explained to me re: the new lenses I would have. Dr. Brass explained to me I would be more sensitive to light and might need low level reading glasses for very fine print after the procedure. (I chose the PanOptix Lens.) Both are true. One thing I especially liked about Dr. Brass was that during the procedures he told you exactly what he was doing. I found that comforting, especially when the first eye was done, not knowing what to expect. Also, when the IV was inserted, it didn't hurt going in on both occasions. I believe his office staff has everything down to a science from first visit to setting up future appts. through followup checkups. You know exactly what your calendar will look like from beginning to end. I would call my experience with Dr. Brass from beginning to end a HOME RUN!

I recently had the cataracts removed from both eyes by Dr. Brass. Every aspect of the experience went smoothly and without any difficulty whatsoever. The entire staff in Dr. Brass’s office was professional and helpful from start to finish. The scheduler met with me to map out the dates for the operations and the pre-op and post-op appointments. She also reviewed the schedule of eye drops that I was to follow. Everything was written out, organized, and presented to me in a folder for easy reference. The technicians completed the measurements, conducted pre-testing, and explained the process for the operations, and the schedule for eye drops - pre and post operation. They also provided a patient bag with an eye shield, tape, and sunglasses to be used after the operations. Everything I needed to know was covered, and all questions were answered. Everything at the surgery center also went very smoothly. Nurses completed pre-op procedures, monitored my progress, and kept me informed

I had cataract surgery in Sept. 2019. Dr. Brass was recommended by my optometrist who said if it was his family, he’d have Dr. Brass perform the procedure. I was not disappointed, I felt I was in very capable hands. Dr. Brass was very friendly, upbeat and professional and explained everything without me feeling rushed at all. His staff was great too.

I have no issues with the medical knowledge of Dr. Brass and I know he is very competent. However, on my last visit, after waiting 2 hours in the waiting room, I was very rushed by the doctor and he was quite rude. He was upset that I had questions and was not patient about explaining the procedure he was about to do. I have been a patient for over 10 years and I was upset to see how arrogant and uncaring Dr. Brass has become over time.

Dr. Brass was recommended to me because I had had RK surgery years ago for nearsightedness and that might cause potential problem with cataract surgery. I had heard horror stories about that. Dr. Brass explained everything clearly and I had the cataract surgery for both eyes. I couldn't be happier with the outcome. He and the staff are wonderful. If I could I would give him a 10 star review.

From the first appointment through the final recuperation, Dr Brass was terrific. He explains what the procedure will be, how he will do it and what to expect as you heal. He definitely cares about his patients and will make you comfortable from beginning until the end. I highly recommend him to anyone that needs eye surgery!

I cannot say enough about Dr. Brass. He is a rare doctor that cares about his patients and does everything to ensure that their surgery has a positive outcome. I had questions and he answered almost all of them before I even asked. He explained his answers so that they were easy to understand. I had a post operative issue and called Dr Brass at 8 pm on a Saturday night. Dr. Brass answered the phone himself and dealt with the issue immediately. He followed up with me the next day which was Sunday. From my experience this is rare for most doctors. I would highly recommend Dr. Brass.

Dr. Brass and his team provided excellent care for me and were very helpful and efficient all the way through the cataract surgery process. His recommendations were spot on and my results are excellent. No pain or discomfort and I see more clearly than ever in my life and without glasses. Strongly recommend Brass Eye Center to anyone with vision problems and especially for cataract treatment.
