I had cataracts in both eyes and it was like looking through a cloudy film. After having surgery, I now have 20/20 vision and I'm extremely pleased with the results! I can now wear beautiful sunglasses. I feel brand new and it (the surgery) IOL Inplants has changed my outlook on life. My vision has never been this good and I'm thankful that I had the expertise of a DO who has performed over 6,000 of these surgeries. Everything went off without a hitch and I can see clearly now!! I'm ecstatic!

I saw Dr Meghpara for a work comp eye injury. He was as patient and gentle with me physically as well as helpful fighting with work comp to pay. He is very thorough and gentle. Dr. was recommended by my mother in law who would see no one else. Anyone with an eye problem would be lucky to have him as their doctor.

I have never had to wait an hour after my appointment time to see a doctor, only to be quickly herded in and out. I transferred extensive records from another doctor out of state and I did not get the feeling that he read them, especially those from August, 2015. He seems capable enough, but I think he needs to check his staff's severe overbooking so that he is able to learn his patients and not be so rushed. I would not recommend him for this reason however, I can only say that he was frien

Dr. Meghpara is an excellent eye doctor. The issue I have is the very long wait time. His staff doesn't have a clue how to schedule patients. I saw him a few days ago and I was there 2 hours. It was well over 1 hour until I was called. One person, with a walker, was so frustrated he told the staff he was leaving and left the office. I have another appointment for next year but I will be looking for another Dr.
