Visiting Dr. Vinca has always been a positive experience. Dr. Vinca addresses your eye issues with patience and professionalism, and is personable. She can explain what's going on with your eyes and make you feel comfortable, can't ask for a better doctor. I've been seeing Dr. Vinca for several years now and would recommend any family, friend or neighbor to choose Dr. Vinca as their number one choice. I have stable Glaucoma and I believe Dr. Vinca has given me the best eye care available.

Dr. Vinca has been our family opthalmologist for almost four years now. She is a warm and caring practitioner who is genuinely concerned about her patients. She is very knowledgeable in her field of practice, thorough, and takes the time to explain to the patient the process, diagnosis, treatment, etc. in a compassionate and easy to understand way. Dr. Vinca is the type of physician who truly connects with the patient as a person and not just as a patient. I would highly recommend her.

Dr. Vinca has saved my vision and given me hope for the future. I trust her so much I have recommended her to all my friends and family. She has treated my glaucoma with great care for at least 7-8 years. With Dr. Vinca's expert medical advice, caring surgical hands, & Rx treatments my vision loss due to glaucoma has halted. Words cannot express my gratitude.

Dr. Vinca is caring and dedicated doctor. When I was having trouble with my eyes, she took me in IMMEDIATELY and found that I had a torn retina. She then directed me to a retina doctor, at once. Even the retina doctor said it took a skilled dictor to pick up the tear. That most doctors wouId havw missed it. I owe her my eyesight.
