Patient Comments (3)
in Pittsgrove, NJ |
As a patient of Dr. Wisda for 15 years, I was extremely disappointed with the office's response when I needed to replace a damaged lens. I had been examined 15 months prior and everything was fine. I have had the same prescription for lenses for over 20 years. They would not approve me buying one lens. Instead, they wanted me to schedule an appointment, whenever they could fit me in, and pay a lens evaluation fee, a lens refitting fee, and a fee to write the prescription, plus insurance.

I had a very good experience with the Wisda Eye Center. It was not difficult to get an appointment, there was minimal wait time in the office, and the staff were professional and friendly. They also have yummy chocolate treats.

I saw Dr. Noh; she's very nice, but when i walked in, she told me my preliminary exam indicated I was borderline legally blind for driving, which is total B.S. She re-screened me, and sure enough, my vision for driving was excellent. Her reason: Sometimes the equipment used in the screening area is not accurate. Really??? Then she told me I had AMD, but gave no info on steps I could take to slow progression despite recent AREDS results. I'm only 52. Very disappointing and unnerving.
