From my first visit to Dr. Romania, I found him to be a very caring doctor, one who took the time to explain things and answer any questions I had. His professionalism and surgical expertise assured me that I selected the right doctor for my cataract surgery. He's the best, and I highly recommend him to anyone seeking an Ophthalmologist.

After going to my eye doctor complaining of blurred vision I was referred to Dr. Romania who did cataract surgery.The surgery turned out fine but did not solve the original problem. Five months of trying different drops I was given ( free of charge) some drops that caused me to have severe pain. Not knowing what to do I decided to get a second opinion. I was informed by the Dr. and his assistant that they have never heard of anyone receiving these drops. These drops I was told were used to diala
We apologize for not providing you with a totally positive experience at Romania Eye Center. All of our patients are provided with the Doctor's home and cell phone number. We wish that you would have called the Doctor directly so that he could have helped you. We are happy as Ms. Clark states that her cataract surgery turned out fine and we acknowledge that our Doctor utilizes the latest medication treatments and surgical techniques.

Had cataract surgery from Dr Romania. It was a exceptional good experience, good explanations about the procedure and what lenses to choose. I have an excellent eyesight now and can drive and see good even at night. I got good explanations about activities after the procedure and well taken care of, could not have been better. The surgery was quick without complications and felt well taken care of. Thanks for my new eyesight!

On the recommendation of my optometrist, I went to see Dr. Romania because my vision wasn't quite right. Even though I saw 20/20 in both eyes, and never having been told I had cataracts, he tried to sign me up for surgery for the following week. He even tried to sell me on $2000 lenses. I decided to get a second opinion and I'm glad I did. Beware of this doctor and his sketchy strip-mall location.
All of us at Romania Eye Center are puzzled by this anonymous review and we question its authenticity. Our practice specializes in the surgical and medical treatment of eye diseases. If another doctor refers someone to our office, obviously that person has an issue with their vision.

I had cataract surgery on both eyes and could not be happier! Dr. Romania personally spent as much time as I needed explaining the process but more importantly on the options available to me regarding different focal points. I opted to have one set at computer distance so I can read books and my cell phone and one set father away so I can read street signs - both without glasses! Dr Romania came highly recommended to me and I also recommend him for cataract/lens replacement surgery.

Dr. Romania did very well explaining the formation and impact of cataracts on the eye and the options for cataract surgery. My surgery went well and I am happy with the results! Plus, this surgery will take 10 strokes off my golf game! The staff of Tabitha, Lisa and Nancy were extremely helpful and friendly. I am very satisfied.

Dr Romaina is the best since my childhood doctor who saved my one eye after a nine year battle with 3 major operations and countless minor ones.
